DARE TO WALK reveals God's desire to take you from "what you are" to what God "wants you to be" . where HE is enthroned as the LORD of your life. In today's liberal freethinking society who boast of no moral standards . it is imperative the "we walk even as HE walked." "These devotions communicate Biblical truth and personal faith . [and] are insightful and thought provoking. They challenge the reader to examine their walk with Christ and stimulate each one to journal personal reflections on scriptures read." -Dr. William B. Coker, Pastor World Gospel Church, Terre Haute, IN. "Edward Powell draws on a lifetime of knowing God and experiencing His faithfulness. I like that. It makes DARE TO WALK relatable and refreshing. In a day when "total surrender" is rarely mentioned, these devotions challenge us to serve God without reservation, daring us to believe that He does reward those who diligently seek Him." -Doug Salser, President Literature Ministries International, Greenville, TX. "I have used Edward Powell's devotional books in my own devotions and found them insightful, Biblically sound, and uplifting . a reflection of the life and pilgrimage of Edward Powell. I recommend them highly to my friends everywhere." -G. L. Johnson, Senior Pastor People's Church, Fresno, CA. EDWARD POWELL, A "miracle" of God's grace, was critically wounded in WW II when both forearms and leg were almost blown off by shrapnel from German artillery. He spent two and a half years in Army hospitals recovering as doctors rebuilt his arms and leg. For 60 years he has taught God's Word, spoken in churches, civic groups, and retreats of God's grace, sufficiency, and faithfulness. He has written two companion books of devotions entitled DARE TO BELIEVE and DARE TO TRUST.

On the cusp of her first London season, Miss Madeline Gracechurch was shy, pretty, and talented with a drawing pencil, but hopelessly awkward with gentlemen. She was certain to be a dismal failure on the London marriage mart. So Maddie did what generations of shy, awkward young ladies have done: she invented a sweetheart. A Scottish sweetheart. One who was handsome and honorable and devoted to her, but conveniently never around. Maddie poured her heart into writing the imaginary Captain MacKenzie letter after letter . . . and by pretending to be devastated when he was (not really) killed in battle, she managed to avoid the pressures of London society entirely. Until years later, when this kilted Highland lover of her imaginings shows up in the flesh. The real Captain Logan MacKenzie arrives on her doorstep—handsome as anything, but not entirely honorable. He's wounded, jaded, in possession of her letters . . . and ready to make good on every promise Maddie never expected to keep.

Find strength in the struggle, passion to persist, wisdom when you're weary, and joy for the journey. If you've ever been on a long trip with small children you've no doubt heard, "Are we there yet?" Maybe you've even said those exact words or felt that same way as you have journeyed with God. Midway is where these feelings of frustration and impatience are most commonly felt. It's also where our hidden doubts find their voice. Where most beginnings start with energy and expectation for all that is ahead, and endings bring the joy of completion as you arrive at your desired destination, the middle is very different. This midpoint can too quickly become a low point, as energy is lacking and enthusiasm wanes. Yet how well you handle the middle reveals what is in the middle of you. The disciples found—in the middle of a lake—a revelation of Jesus that they had never seen on the shore. In the middle is where new navigational skills are found. It's also where some of the most significant lessons are learned. Join Charlotte Gambill in this compelling, story-driven message that shows through biblical teaching and life application how those who persist through the middle will find that miracles await them on the other side.

Matt has learned to weather life's storms by steering a steady emotional course...and keeping a commitment-free approach to love. Newcomer Allison Carter came to Dare Island to escape the emotional demands of her wealthy family. The young teacher aims to build a life here, to make a lasting place for herself. She doesn't want to be another Woman Who Once Dated Matt Fletcher. It's both tempting and dangerous to believe she can be something more. Then Matt's brother Luke makes a sudden return home, with a child of his own--and a request that will change all their lives. With a child's welfare at stake, Matt must turn to Allison to teach him to let go of the past, open his eyes...and follow his heart.
