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).

Are you frustrated with trying to live the Christian life?
Do your struggles with sin discourage you?
Have you been taught you can't ever win the battle . . . that as long as you are living, you will fall short?
Jesus told people to sin no more. Rather than tell them the struggle with sin and Satan would be difficult, He said, "My yoke is easy and my burden is light." Jesus doesn't ask us to do the impossible.
Ken Gould rejected distorted teachings about God and was an atheist for twenty years, until God revealed His existence to him. Afterward, he recognized Christianity wasn't something to be taken lightly. His highest priority became to know God and understand His counsel.
Gould says, "It is possible to live a godly life in victory. What we believe about God affects our ability to live a victorious life."
In this guidebook on living in God's victory, learn:
How to cooperate with God to attain the victory He has for you.
How our definition of sin can remove frustration and allow us to live a godly life.
How believing lies about God keeps us from escaping our rebellious, sinful attitudes.
The interaction between natural laws and sin.
"God's truth sets us free from Satan's slavery and it's lies about God that keep us trapped."
Learning to love is like learning to fly . . .
Eccentric. Weird. Crazy. Whatever people call her, Lila doesn’t mind. Most of the time. She finds solace in her sheltered world by raising butterflies and surrounding herself with their gentle beauty. They’re all she needs.
Most of the time.
Until a motorcycle-riding stranger roars up her driveway, invading her safe haven, throwing her life off-kilter, and forcing her to question everything. Persistent and stubborn, Harvey Sanford may be just what she needs—or everything she doesn’t.
He’s easy on the eyes, but hard on her emotions. What exactly is he after, and what is he not telling her? Should she safeguard her heart or follow it?
As a summer wedding approaches, Lila must decide how much she’s willing to risk for a chance at true happiness. In one intense night of desperation and revelation, she must confront her darkest fears—and hopefully discover that with faith and courage, shattered dreams can be restored, damaged hearts can love again, and broken wings can heal . . . maybe even fly.
A clean, inspirational, sweet summer romance!
Recommended for fans of contemporary Christian romance authors such as Courtney Walsh, Liz Isaacson, and Becky Wade.

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.

About the Author
Byron is passionate about the Bible and believes it is the sovereign word of God. Although probably best described as a charismatic Christian, Byron has a heart for the whole body of Christ and has a desire to see all people walk closer to God and hear His voice.
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.
