Take Up The Praise



Come meet Judy Elmer and celebrate the release of her second book “Take Up The Praise!”.

The Christian life is by nature one of faith and often calls you to act in counterintuitive ways. When author Judith Elmer’s husband suffered a stroke, she had every reason to protest, and yet Christ invited her to praise God instead. Absurd, right? But when she chose to focus on who God is rather than her circumstances, she experienced an impossible peace that lifted her above the hurt and grief and gave her the strength to endure.

God is always worthy of praise and when we acknowledge that truth, our lives can overflow with peace and joy. Take Up the Praise! and Walk On Water teaches you how to grow your faith by practicing the spiritual discipline of praise. Combining scripture, hymns, and personal stories, this book also includes interactive sections throughout the text where you can write your own responses to questions such as: What is your battle cry for help? What song is God singing over you? What helps you turn your eyes on Jesus?

Great for small groups, Bible study and retreat settings, this book can also serve as a personal devotional or a gift for a friend in need of comfort.
