Do you consider yourself a prideful person or know someone that is? Many times, we overlook pride and don’t see it for what it truly is, relying on our own strength and seeking our own way. When we do this, we reject the will of God for our lives. In this book, author Mark Michael, shares the story of a time in his life that he had to deal with humility. He was forced to walk everywhere he needed to go after his car broke down and he didn’t have the money to fix it. He then realized he was a very prideful person and had been living his life to please only himself and not the Lord.
Mark teaches readers that as Christians we have a false perception that God wants to make us look good. This is a fallacy. The truth is that our virtues, gifts, and talents have been given to us by God to glorify Him. Not us. Once we understand this, we can truly live in such a way to bring glory to God, which in turn brings us freedom and joy.
Mark D. Michael is a writer and a pastor. He holds a Doctorate of Ministry degree from, United Theological Seminary. He has served in ministry for over 20 years and has served as a Chaplain at the Veteran’s Administration Hospital in Tuskegee, Alabama. Currently, he serves as a Chaplain at St. Clair Correctional Facility in Springville, Alabama. He and his wife, Sandra, live in Union Springs, Alabama.

She wants faith, hope, and love.
She wants help and healing.
She wants to hear and be heard, to see and be seen.
She wants things set right.She wants to know what is true—not partly true, or sometimes true, or almost true. She wants to see Truth itself, face-to-face. But here, now, these things are all cloudy. Hope is tinged with hurt. Faith is shaded by doubt. Lesser, broken things masquerade as love.How does she find something permanent when the world around her is always changing, when not even she can stay the same? And if she finds it, how does she hold on?
She Reads Truth tells the stories of two women who discovered, through very different lives and circumstances, that only God and His Word remain unchanged as the world around them shifted and slipped away. Infused with biblical application and Scripture, this book is not just about two characters in two stories, but about one Hero and one Story. Every image points to the bigger picture—that God and His Word are true. Not because of anything we do, but because of who He is. Not once, not occasionally, but right now and all the time.
Sometimes it takes everything moving to notice the thing that doesn’t move. Sometimes it takes telling two very different stories to notice how the Truth was exactly the same in both of them.
For anyone searching for a solid foundation to cling to, She Reads Truth is a rich and honest Bible-filled journey to finally find permanent in a world that’s passing away.

“When confronted with the fact that after only 12 months I had all but destroyed my marriage I set out on an exercise called ‘Collective Wisdom.’ I spent thousands of hours reading books and having coffee with men. Guy Thing is the fruit of 15 years of personal research on manhood, marriage, and family. These lessons turned my life around, saved my marriage, and gave me the skills I needed to raise my kids.” John King, author.
