Inspirational and at Bargain Prices!

CBD always has great prices but when they advertise their 'bargains' then you're really in for a savings! Here are a few of the delightful pickings to get your Spring off to a great start!
We have My Utmost for His Highest in our family library ... a forever inspirational classic. At times I think writers just try to repeat or compete with some these timeless writings and in my opinion, most of them fall short.  Chambers writings are always worth reading and re-reading.  They are worth quoting and here’s a few quotes that touch my heart.
“The people who influence us most are not those who buttonhole us and talk to us, but those who live their lives like the stars in heaven and the lilies in the field, perfectly simply and unaffectedly. Those are the lives that mould”
“he must deny his right to himself, and he must realize who Jesus Christ is before he will bring himself to do it. Beware of refusing to go to the funeral of your own independence”
“Take yourself by the scruff of the neck and shake off your incarnate laziness.”
“We have to keep letting go, and slowly and surely the great full life of God will invade us in every part, and men will take knowledge of us that we have been with Jesus.”
“Many of us are faithful to our ideas about Jesus Christ, but how many of us are faithful to Jesus Himself?
….Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest

The version below is done in a gift-book style but, when you visit the site you'll see other editions you may prefer. This book really would be an excellent gift for the graduates in your life!

These next two are actually on my wish list.
I’ve written and presented my own lessons on women of the Bible, read other books and participated in ladies classes by others about women of the Bible but mainly these are authored by ladies. I’m curious and am looking forward to seeing what John MacArthur does with this.
280285: Twelve Extraordinary Women: How God Shaped Women of the Bible and What He Wants to Do with You Twelve Extraordinary Women: How God Shaped Women of the Bible and What He Wants to Do with You

By John MacArthur

Celebrated for their courage, vision, hospitality, and spiritual giftedness, it's no wonder women were so important to God's place revealed in the Old and New Testaments. It wasn't their natural qualities that made these women extraordinary but the power of the one true God whom they worshipped and served.
In Twelve Extraordinary Women, you'll learn more than fascinating information about these women, you'll discover--perhaps for the first time--the unmistakable chronology of God's redemptive work in history through their lives. These women were not ancillary to His plan, they were at the very heart of it. And this book includes their amazing stories.
This edition includes a Study Guide for group discussion.

And then, Twelve Ordinary Men … yep, God is pretty notorious for taking the ordinary and doing the extraordinary - but these twelve men, the closest disciples of Jesus, although ordinary themselves, were up close and so intimate with our Savior and Lord. Should be an outstanding book!

By John MacArthur

Contrary to popular belief, we do not have to be perfect to do God's work. Look no further than the twelve disciples whose many weaknesses are forever preserved throughout the pages of the New Testament. Jesus chose ordinary men - fisherman, tax collectors, political zealots - and turned their weakness into strength, producing greatness from utter uselessness. Join John MacArthur as he draws principles from Christ's careful, hands-on training of the original twelve disciples for today's modern disciple - you!

Three books - but in them are writings that have the power to change lives all because of their dependence on the best book of all - the Bible and the greatest story ever told.
