In riveting detail, Hannah Luce, the daughter of pastor and Teen Mania Ministries co-founder, Ron Luce, describes in her new book, Fields of Grace: Faith, Friendship, and the Day I Nearly Lost Everything, the horrifying experience of being the sole survivor of a plane crash that killed four of her friends and left her with a grueling recovery after sustaining burns to 30 percent of her body.
On May 11, 2012, Luce and four of her close friends, one of whom was the pilot, boarded a twin-engine Cessna 401 from Tulsa, Okla., to attend a Teen Mania "Acquire the Fire" youth rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, when one hour into the flight smoke and what Luce describes as "hot air" and soot filled the cabin. The pilot, Luke Sheets, 24, who had earned his commercial pilot's license, radioed in for permission to descend as the plane plummeted to the ground and crashed near a corn field in rural Altoona, Kan.
Despite the severe burns to her body, which was covered only by what little remained of her clothes that had melted into her skin, Luce struggled to free herself from the burning plane and when she finally fell from the wreckage, she remembered the childhood lesson to stop, drop and roll, as she landed in the grass below and extinguished the flames from her body. more >>

"I was just getting tired of hearing over and over of guys looking for an easy way out for break-ups, or simply not responding over text message so I wrote a blog post for Ruthie's blog, called 'Real Men Don't Text,'" Michael told The Christian Post.
Ruthie, whose blog focuses on relationships and marriage, said that Michael's post struck a chord with her audience and intersected with much of what she had been hearing from about relationships over the years. more >>
Derwin Gray, founding pastor of Transformation Church in South Carolina, reminds readers in his new book, Limitless Life: You Are More Than Your Past When God Holds Your Future, that their identity is found in Jesus Christ, and not in labels like "addict," "orphan," or "failure" that family members, friends or life might have thrown their way.
The Transformation Church leader and former pro NFL player writes in Limitless Life that the truth of one's identity, worth, and purpose is centered in God through Jesus Christ. Nothing but God's grace, not even "religion," can remove the barriers placed upon people because of these labels, or "soul-tattoos" as Gray calls them.
When asked what he believes is God's desire for His children, Gray answered, "To be transformed into the image of Jesus and to continue Jesus' redemptive mission on earth through our gifts as the Holy Spirit empowers us, His Church, in every facet of life." more >>
