Leaving behind a borrowed faith.

It’s time to stop borrowing or faking your faith . . . own it!

The feature film Grace Unplugged tells the story of Grace Trey, an eighteen year-old small town pastor’s daughter who is also a phenomenal singer. But when she abruptly leaves home and finds instant Hollywood fame, the faith and relationships she grew up with are put to the test.

As seen in the movie, Own It challenges readers by asking what it means to really “own” your faith rather than just automatically or blindly following in the footsteps of friends or parents. Bestselling authors Michael and Hayley DiMarco will help you navigate what to do when faith meets real world challenges.

Renting, borrowing, or faking your faith is a waste of time. Own It is all about the supernatural reality that when you take hold of your faith, it’s really God’s love that takes hold of you.

The Big Picture

Making God the main focus of your life.

The Big Picture is a gospel-centered book for teenagers and young adults that tells the story of the God who has always been with man and, through his Son and Spirit, always will. Best-selling authors Hayley and Michael DiMarco guide readers to be more aware of God’s presence with us today and better sense His call for us to make disciples of all nations.

The gospel didn’t begin in the New Testament. It was there, “In the beginning,” at the genesis of everything. Across the whole of human history, God’s grand narrative of love and redemption has been unfolding, a love gloriously displayed at the cross. This is the story of Jesus, and all history and Scripture point us to this good news.

Teenagers live in a world defined by pressure—and with no shortage of opinions on how they should handle it. In The Big Picture, teens will develop a bigger perspective of Scripture and how the story of Jesus Christ ties it all together and how He should be our main focus. Nothing brings life into focus like the gospel!

Review: “If you’re a student who wants to grow in your knowledge of God and His Word, then pick up this book. The DiMarcos have written a book that shows how the Bible tells one overarching story with Jesus at the center – the Jesus who will change your life and focus your priorities.”
Trevin Wax, Managing Editor of The Gospel Project, author of Clear Winter Nights and Gospel-Centered Teaching.

True Purity

More than just saying ‘no’ to you know what.

What if everything you’ve heard about purity wasn’t quite right?

True Purity isn’t about waiting and keeping your body under wraps–it’s about being purely God’s in every way. Any desire that prevents you from giving God 100 percent of your life leads to impurity. But here’s the amazing truth about purity:

Purity isn’t something you achieve for yourself–your purity is really God’s job.

True purity is something that is yours solely because of the One who makes you pure. It’s when you embrace Jesus as your source of purity that God sees you as pure.

Hayley and Michael DiMarco show you what purity looks like not only when it relates to sex and your body, but also in every area of life. They explain how it involves all of your thoughts, desires, and actions. Because even the best intentions, pledges, rings, and willpower will never equal the true purity found in Christ.

The Fruitful Wife

Cultivating a love only God can produce.

Marriage is God’s tool of sanctification and that ought to bring women hope when things get hard. Yet very few women have the idea of spiritual growth at the front of their minds when conflict arises. In The Fruitful Wife Hayley DiMarco applies the fruit of the Spirit, not just to wives but to all women, taking a look at how each fruit impacts a woman’s day-to-day life and manifests itself (or hides itself) as she attempts to love others the way God loves her. DiMarco is readily transparent about her own failures, sharing with readers her fights for control, authority, and respect. Ultimately, DiMarco teaches how even the rockiest of marriages can become fruitful and generate the fruit God intends to produce.

Obsessed

Breaking free from the things that consume you.

You were made to be obsessed.

Have you ever found yourself obsessed over something? So consumed with something that you can hardly even think of anything else? A relationship, a new phone, a perfect body, your reputation, good grades, the most unique style–anything can leave you obsessed.

But God wants you to be obsessed with him. And only him. With God, it’s all or nothing.

In Obsessed, bestselling author Hayley DiMarco helps you break free from the thoughts, actions, and stuff that so easily get between you and God. She helps you identify the life-draining desires in your life and shows you how to replace them with life-giving ones.

You were born to worship and to tell others about who (or what) you love. When you put God in his proper place, everything else falls beneath him. And the result is a life rightly obsessed with God.

Obsessed: Making Christ the Desire of Your Heart is a 6 session Bible study written for teenage girls to adult women.

Great for a short-term discipleship study or girls retreat.
