They help to determine our choices, behaviors, and attitudes, as well as how we relate to others. They are an extremely important part of our lives, yet we rarely consider what they need in order to develop spiritual and emotional well-being. Rise Above will examine topics such as: Food and behavior, blood sugar levels, serotonin and beta-endorphins, the importance of sleep, food intolerance, dehydration and much more!

As an account full of harsh judgment unfolds, we find in its midst a rare and pure gem: the truest and purest of loves. Hosea, an old-testament prophet, preached his own life message using his marriage as the sermon illustration. The study of Hosea looks deeply at that message. It provides background to better understand the intricacies of the man and his message. You'll be guided to understand, but more especially to apply the message of the prophet of love. The book will challenge us with judgment so harsh it will singe our hairan unheeded sermon warning of devastating doom shortly to come. But it will show us the kind of love we dream about. Be amazed by the love of Hosea for his wayward spouseand more amazed by the unfailing love of God for His wayward people, and for all people. Hosea showers us with hopehints and portents pointing to the coming of the promised Messiah.
