Deepen your faith by exploring these lesser-known Scripture verses.

Many of us have our go-to verses. The ones we memorize, post on social media, and hang on our walls. But sometimes we need a fresh word or promise for the season we find ourselves in--something that ignites our faith in the face of fear, doubt, loneliness, insecurity, or overwhelming circumstances.

In this powerful, accessible new book, author and speaker Laurie Short mines the Scriptures, revealing insights and promises from 40 verses we often overlook. Digging into these "in-between" verses, she unearths fresh wisdom, guidance, and encouragement that will help you seek and experience God in new, dynamic ways.

From trusting God's timing, to not worrying about the future, to holding on to faith when things look dark, the deeper understanding gleaned from these verses will help you navigate the challenges that cross your path, breathe new life into your weary soul, and ignite your faith once again.

"Laurie's reflections into each of these passages of Scripture provide powerful insights and meaningful application as we walk out our faith."
--JIM DALY, president, Focus on the Family

"Both encouraging and challenging, Laurie leads us verse by verse from a place of hopelessness to joyful faith."
--AARTI SEQUEIRA, winner, season 6, The Next Food Network Star; host, Aarti Party
