Some of the most beautiful and moving things in this world are words. There are authors who have either experienced circumstances that they then relay to us and move us, or who have seen others experience such things. These types of ebooks can have a tremendously meaningful impact on our lives, so much so that some ebooks in this category can even change the course of our life and those around us. Imagine getting all of that value for free or for a discount. That's what eBookHounds brings you.
Definition of the "Religious and Inspirational Genre": Ebooks in the Religious and Inspirational genre are meant to capture real stories of people who have seen true, seemingly insurmountable struggle and persevered through that. The ebooks do not have to be religious to be inspirational, but there oftentimes is included an aspect of spirituality that helped the main character overcome his or her challenge. And, the challenge is oftentimes tied to change. When a reader sees that the main character of one of these ebooks can change, or is forced to change due to circumstances, that can spill over into the reader's own life.
Some examples of bestselling ebooks in the Religious and Inspirational Genre are Jack Canfield et al (Chicken Soup for the Soul), Yann Martel (Life of Pi), Paulo Coelho (The Alchemist), and Viktor Frankl (Man's Search for Meaning).

A fake ad brings a cowboy to Georgia's door just in time for all the Quinn family holiday parties, so she hires Logan to be her boyfriend. Nothing can go wrong with this plan...except she might lose her heart to her newly contracted cowboy.
Georgia Quinn doesn't particularly love being one of the dozens of Quinns in Quinn Valley. Her family is just so loud, you know? And she's certainly not looking forward to a holiday season full of family get-togethers when she has to do everything alone after her painful break-up months ago.
When her granny mentions the holidays would be more fun with a boyfriend, Georgia seizes onto the idea and puts out an ad for someone to come fix the barn at the ranch. But what they really need to fix is her heart, and there's no one more suited for her than carpenter and cowboy Logan Locke.
Logan's the quiet type, and he hasn't had a serious relationship in a long time. But he desperately needs the money, and if Georgia needs her barn finished or a date to a party, he doesn't care as long as he gets paid.
Georgia and Logan pose as the perfect couple, showing her ex that she's moved on when she hasn't and his family that he can be serious about something when he never has been before. But how badly will they both crash and burn if they let their feelings become real in a relationship that is anything but?

From the Author
We live in a world that is so busy, with everyone competing for our attention. So why should you stop and look at this book? What's so special about it and what gives me the right to speak into your life?
Well, please allow me to tell you. This book wasn't written to build a platform, or to become one of the best selling Christian authors. It was written because God put it on my heart to tell people about my story so my testimonies can help those who are still going through the "test" part of their future testimonies. It's to encourage those of you who are stuck, stuck in life, and stuck in a rut. It's for those who are camping in the valley of the shadow of death instead of walking through it and into the feast that God has prepared for them. It’s to encourage those who have been through a loss, those who have been rejected, those who have struggled with fear and anxiety, those who are facing financial lack and those who are up against a giant right now and can't see a way around
There is hope, and God knows the path out.
I've been through a lot of struggles. I've lost my sister, had my heart broken, been in an accident, been held up at gunpoint, had significant health struggles, and been through lots of battles, but through it all, I've seen Jesus and heard His voice. And He has always led me out into victory. I've also seen the deliverance of the Lord. I've seen God do miracles. I've seen God come through in impossible situations. I've seen heaven come to earth on many occasions and have seen God redeem situations that were meant for our harm and made them for our good. GOD IS REAL, and when the Holy Spirit breathes on it, the Bible comes alive, and God shows you that there is light at the end of the tunnel. He is your deliverer, protector, comforter and friend. His word is the light to the path that shines the way and shows you where to go.
So, I want to share my stories with you in hope that God can use them to lift you up and pull you out of the pit. Reminding you that you are a child of the King, born for a purpose, and you belong in a palace. Take my testimonies and hold onto them. Begin to phophesy the same victories into your life too. The same God who is in me is in you. He has no favourites, but He does respond to faith. So, take him at His word and hold onto Him and when you feel like backing down, giving up or hiding away from life. Remind yourself that He is good and He is God. He is for you and not against you. Have faith in God, He’s got you and will never let go of you.
So, go ahead and take a look at this book. Give it a try. What do you have to lose? God’s waiting for you and calling you deeper into His presence. His victories are hidden for you and not from you. But you have to seek Him a little deeper.
Oh, and by the way, 25% of the profits of this book will go to the family of a dear friend who's gone to be with Jesus (because life doesn't always go the way we want). But we can trust God to redeem and restore, and we can trust that somehow, He will always work things out for the good of those who love him.

Are you ready to find the one you were made for?
The pain of wondering if there’s ever going to be a match for you can be unbearable. Being single can raise a whole host of questions, fears, and doubts.
Will I be single forever? Does God care? Have I missed the one?
But you can have clarity about your future!
With practical insight grounded in scripture and painful personal experience, this book will help you discover:
-What the Bible teaches about perfect matches.
-If God has a match for you.
-How to find the person God made you for.
-What you can do right now to prepare for your match.
-How to enjoy this season of singleness instead of hating it.
The Perfect Match is rooted in the Biblical wisdom that while there are no perfect people today, there are still perfect matches.
If you are single, the scriptures give incredible insight about things you can do right now to prepare for your match.
This book was written for the people who at their worst moments have asked the question, “Is there anyone out there for me?” and at their best and most honest moments have admitted that deep down, they hope there is.
This is for people who have spent countless nights alone, wondering if this is how they are to live out the remainder of their days.
This is for the people who are dating or engaged to someone they are not made for but have hung on because they cannot bear the pain of being alone.
This book was written for you.
I know what it’s like. I know the feeling of wondering if you will be alone forever or if marrying the person you are dating would be settling.
I know the feeling of wondering if you missed the right person or if there even is a “right” person to begin with.
I believe that I have a wealth of wisdom when it comes to finding the person that God wants you to be with because I have been in your shoes.
After going through a painful breakup with a woman I dated for over three years, I know how hard it can be to find the right one.
As hard as it was, the waiting I experienced prepared me for the day when I finally met my perfect match.
I have counseled many who feared lifelong singleness but eventually found their match as they patiently waited on God and trusted His timing.
Through it all, I have found God’s Word to be completely relevant to relationships.
In addition to my own story of finding my match, I have witnessed those who previously were heartbroken find joy as they patiently waited for the person God had for them.
There is nothing quite like watching someone find their perfect match.
May the practical wisdom in this book help you embrace the destiny God has for you and prepare you for a beautiful life with the person you were made for.
This book will bring you incredible clarity as you wait for God to bring about your perfect match!

You will love this Young Adult Romance Novel if you enjoy:
This is the story of two very different young men, from two very different worlds. Tyson is from the rough streets of Trentan, a crime-ridden, drug-infested, inner-city neighbourhood. Joey is from the affluent northern suburbs, a community of privilege and opportunity. The worlds of these two young men collide through a chance encounter, and as a result, they begin to question their life situations – which are at critical points. This connection sparks a shared journey of self-development; one which brings about necessary changes for both men.
The story has a self-help thread throughout, which is inspired by the author’s personal experience of living with anxiety and depression. The text conveys the truths that enabled him to rise out of suffering, and to live a life of peace and fulfilment. The teachings are centred on the concept of “present moment awareness”, and how this can be applied to everyday life.

In these pages, New York Times bestselling author Shauna Niequist invites you to consider the landscape of your own life, and what it might look like to leave behind the pressure to be perfect and begin the life-changing practice of simply being present, in the middle of the mess and the ordinariness of life.
As she puts it: "A few years ago, I found myself exhausted and isolated, my soul and body sick. I was tired of being tired, burned out on busy. And, it seemed almost everyone I talked with was in the same boat: longing for connection, meaning, depth, but settling for busy.
"I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, neighbor, writer, and I know all too well that settling feeling. But over the course of the last few years, I've learned a way to live, marked by grace, love, rest, and play. And it's changing everything.
"Present Over Perfect is an invitation to this journey that changed my life. I’ll walk this path with you, a path away from frantic pushing and proving, and toward your essential self, the one you were created to be before you began proving and earning for your worth."
Written in Shauna's warm and vulnerable style, this collection of essays focuses on the most important transformation in her life, and maybe yours too: leaving behind busyness and frantic living and rediscovering the person you were made to be. Present Over Perfect is a hand reaching out, pulling you free from the constant pressure to perform faster, push harder, and produce more, all while maintaining an exhausting image of perfection.
Shauna offers an honest account of what led her to begin this journey, and a compelling vision for an entirely new way to live: soaked in grace, rest, silence, simplicity, prayer, and connection with the people that matter most to us.
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Pierce Brown’s relentlessly entertaining debut channels the excitement of The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins and Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card.
“Ender, Katniss, and now Darrow.”—Scott Sigler
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, BUZZFEED, AND SHELF AWARENESS
“I live for the dream that my children will be born free,” she says. “That they will be what they like. That they will own the land their father gave them.”
“I live for you,” I say sadly.
Eo kisses my cheek. “Then you must live for more.”
Darrow is a Red, a member of the lowest caste in the color-coded society of the future. Like his fellow Reds, he works all day, believing that he and his people are making the surface of Mars livable for future generations. Yet he spends his life willingly, knowing that his blood and sweat will one day result in a better world for his children.
But Darrow and his kind have been betrayed. Soon he discovers that humanity reached the surface generations ago. Vast cities and lush wilds spread across the planet. Darrow—and Reds like him—are nothing more than slaves to a decadent ruling class.
Inspired by a longing for justice, and driven by the memory of lost love, Darrow sacrifices everything to infiltrate the legendary Institute, a proving ground for the dominant Gold caste, where the next generation of humanity’s overlords struggle for power. He will be forced to compete for his life and the very future of civilization against the best and most brutal of Society’s ruling class. There, he will stop at nothing to bring down his enemies . . . even if it means he has to become one of them to do so.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Pierce Brown's Golden Son.

The Power of Myth launched an extraordinary resurgence of interest in Joseph Campbell and his work. A preeminent scholar, writer, and teacher, he has had a profound influence on millions of people--including Star Wars creator George Lucas. To Campbell, mythology was the “song of the universe, the music of the spheres.” With Bill Moyers, one of America’s most prominent journalists, as his thoughtful and engaging interviewer, The Power of Myth touches on subjects from modern marriage to virgin births, from Jesus to John Lennon, offering a brilliant combination of intelligence and wit.
This extraordinary book reveals how the themes and symbols of ancient narratives continue to bring meaning to birth, death, love, and war. From stories of the gods and goddesses of ancient Greece and Rome to traditions of Buddhism, Hinduism and Christianity, a broad array of themes are considered that together identify the universality of human experience across time and culture. An impeccable match of interviewer and subject, a timeless distillation of Campbell’s work, The Power of Myth continues to exert a profound influence on our culture.
Does God have someone for you?
These 7 clear signs will give you great insight into what God is promising you!
Countless numbers of people wonder if God has someone out there for them. Fears of lifelong singleness can easily creep in when we don't have certainty about what God is promising us. The Bible gives clear direction for how to have discernment in this area.
If you are someone who desires confirmation that God has a spouse for you, these "7 signs" will be a great encouragement to you. This eBook will walk you through the Biblical process of discernment and teach you how to know if God is promising you a spouse.
For detailed discernment that you are not waiting in vain for a spouse, I strongly encourage you to get this exclusive content.
Here is what some are saying about "7 Signs that God has Someone for You":
"This is an amazing book, filled with biblical examples, personal anecdotes, compelling reasoning, and wise and encouraging advice. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone who is single, and to all the friends of single people. It can change the way you think about God and his perfect will for your life." Dr. Jim Taylor Jr.
"Great book! Really gives insight and makes you think. Highly recommended!" Bryce Hayden
"If you have been looking and wondering if there is someone out there for you as a partner. The author of this book gives you the 7 signs you should be looking for in your quest to find that special someone." Tari Terrell
A few excerpts:
"If our faith rests on anything other than God’s power, we risk walking in perpetual doubt simply so that we will never be disappointed. But isn’t a life of doubt and unbelief already a disappointment?"
"Don’t think that just because you want it, it means God wants something different!"
"Sometimes God is making us thirst for the very thing He is going to give us."
"So if you hear stories all of the time about how people fell in love, don’t get jealous—get inspired! It may be God’s way of showing you what He is about to give you, not showing you what you will never have."
"In the kingdom of God surrender means letting go, not giving up."

You can only resist God's call for so long. Ask Moses, ask Paul… ask MaryAnne Connor.
As the owner of a successful real estate marketing firm, MaryAnne Connor, appeared to have it all. A happy marriage, the respect of her peers and a thriving career. But denial was her stronghold, and her enemy. She suffered from chronic pain, a dependency on pain medication and her marriage was failing.
And then there were God's whispers. They were getting louder. He wanted her to shift to a life of helping others. But how could He use her when she was so broken?
After years of resistance, she surrendered to His call, left everything behind and stepped onto the darkest streets of her city. There she found a kinship with other broken-hearted souls and the burning desire to help the poor and hungry. And so the genesis of NightShift Street Ministries began, along with an incredible series of miracles to conquer every obstacle put in her path.
Purchase The Shift today, walk in MaryAnne’s footsteps and take a remarkable journey to a place of love, hope & purpose.
Bestselling author Anne Graham Lotz will teach you how to pray effectively for your nation, for your families, and for yourself.
Many people today find that their prayers don’t “work.” And like a broken cell phone, DVD player, or TV remote, they throw prayer out as unnecessary “clutter” in their busy lives. Anne Graham Lotz has found that while prayer does work, sometimes the “pray-ers” don’t. So she has turned to the prophet Daniel for help.
The Daniel Prayer is born deep within your soul, erupts through your heart, and pours out on your lips, words created by and infused with the Spirit of God quivering with spiritual electricity. It’s really not an everyday type of prayer. It’s a prayer birthed under pressure. Heartache. Grief. Desperation. It can be triggered by a sudden revelation of hope. An answer to prayer, a promise freshly received, a miracle that lies just over the horizon.
Join Anne in a thrilling discovery of prayer that really works.
For extended study into The Daniel Prayer message, Anne has also created The Daniel Prayer video study and study guide. Available now.

What if heaven and earth were two worlds waiting to become one?
Many Christians dismiss the book of Revelation as an impossible allegorical fantasy or fear it as a bone-chilling peek at our impending doom. But what if the real message of the final book of the Bible is the unveiling of God’s plan to bring final, cosmic redemption to His creation?
As you read this book, you will:
– Discover how the theme of new creation is interwoven in the entire biblical arc
– Expose common misconceptions about heaven, afterlife, and eternity
– Understand more fully the role of Jesus in his life, death, resurrection, and ascension
– Enrich your perspective of how life in the coming new world is described through ancient eyes
– Celebrate how salvation concludes with the most joyous wedding of all time
Plus, workbook questions and action steps with each chapter will help you personalize and apply key truths gleaned from this exploration of the Bible’s powerful concluding book.
From the moment of the original creation, God has been working all things toward the new creation. We are living in an exciting time between the old and the new, with Jesus’ ascension ushering in the dawning of the end, which is only the new beginning.
The Dawn of the New Creation: Exploring the Christian Hope As Told by Revelation delivers a colorful picture of the hope that is to come, which will forever change your view of life, death, the future, and the Triune God who is making all things new.
“When people think of revelation, they often mistakenly think only of judgment and the destruction of the world. This book, The Dawn of the New Creation, captures the true essence, the new world, and reality God is preparing for his people. I recommend strongly not just reading but meditating on the themes uncovered in this excellent work. In actuality, we are citizens of heaven/the New Creation, and this will help us realize our wondrous present as well as our glorious future. Our lives will be changed, and we will see everything a lot more clearly as a result. It is exciting to see this extremely positive work on the Apocalypse come to light.”
—Grant R. Osborne, author of Revelation: Verse by Verse & The Hermeneutical Spiral
Brayden Brookshier, Head of Publishing for Sermon To Book and Speak It To Book, is an up-and-coming Christian author and theologian. He serves in various biblical teaching ministries in San Diego, California.
“The Sabbath doesn’t apply to me. That Old Testament stuff isn’t relevant anymore."
If you’ve ever said that, you could not be more wrong.
The first Sabbath occurred before there was Jew or gentile; after six days of creation God rested. And don’t forget that Jesus said, “The Sabbath was made for man” (Mark 2:27). Not, “The Sabbath was made for the Jew.”
But even if you do believe the fourth commandment applies to you, how do you apply it to your life?
It’s hard to stop and rest for an hour let alone an entire day. Besides that, busyness is a badge—if you’re not busy, you’re not trying. Sure, you might make it to church every Sunday, but while there all you can think about is the to do list you need to work on.
Andrew Gilmore was in the same boat: distracted at church, stressed out by his to do list, and unsure if the fourth commandment even applied to him.
But a few years ago, he read the Bible cover to cover for the first time. As he made his way through the Old Testament he was struck by how many times the scriptures mention the Sabbath. In fact, the word “Sabbath” appears ninety-six times in the Old Testament, 154 times overall.
He began asking, "How could something so prevalent not be relevant to my walk with Christ?” He concluded that, at the very lest, the Sabbath reveals something about the character of God and how He wants His people to live.
So Andrew set out on a mission to uncover the meaning behind the fourth commandment.
How does it apply to the Christian?
How should one behave on the Sabbath?
What does it mean to “work"?
The deeper he dug, the more he realized just how important the Sabbath is. He compiled all of his findings over the course of two years to bring you "Do No Work: Beat Burnout, Find Inner Peace, and Strengthen Your Faith by Studying the Most Overlooked of the Ten Commandments."
In "Do No Work" Andrew gives a thorough examination of the Sabbath commandment: it’s origin, its application to Christians, and its ability to transcend the material world.
This short book is crammed full of information, inspiring anecdotes, and even some theology.
- The 2 steps required to beat burnout
- 3 ways to get better rest
- The real reason you don’t have peace
- The most common Sabbath myth
- What the Sabbath and heaven have in common
- How to skyrocket your faith to levels you’ve never had before
Read the book Dan Miller (of "48 Days to the Work You Love" and "Wisdom Meets Passion") mentioned on his weekly podcast saying, "I love the concept.” And, “It’s really well done.” And find out what it means to honor God on the Sabbath.
Apply the principles behind this book and you’ll reduce stress, draw closer to God, and have a much improved grasp on the Bible as a whole.
