Come Up Higher by Paul L. Cox
People are hungry for greater spiritual freedom in their life. In our ministry at Aslan’s Place we’ve seen this evidenced in hundreds of requests for our manual, Prayers for Generational Deliverance. Whats the connection? God has used these prayers to bring remarkable freedom to people. As requests have grown and more prayers have been added, God led Paul L. Cox to compile them into a new book, Come Up Higher. Written and edited by Paul L. Cox of Aslan’s Place along other contributing authors, this book explores the biblical, theological, and historical settings of forty-two prayers that God has used to impact lives. Discover more of the freedom God can bring through prayers in the pages of Come Up Higher. This is a great resource whether for personal use, or as a reference manual for prayer ministry with others.
Letters From God by Ivan Tait
LETTERS FROM GOD was born from a desire to see people encouraged and comforted on a daily basis. This book is part faith and part hope, mixed with the promise of realizing God’s will for everyday. Letters from God carries miraculous potential to change and encourage our lives, and to build us up. Our days should be clothed with God’s blessings of power and wisdom. We are all on different journeys but headed to the same destination, which is to be found fulfilling the will of God and enjoying His presence along the way. These letters are prophetic in nature and spoken directly to you. Allow them to penetrate your heart; they will mend wounds, erase pain, bring clarity, open your soul to soar, and bring peace to your every day. May they be a source of daily wisdom, comfort, and understanding. And may they make your footsteps lighter and more purpose-filled. When God speaks we are revived.
Seeing Yourself in the Mirror of Truth by Laura Shoemaker
No one would use a “funhouse” mirror that distorts reflections or a broken mirror that impairs images to apply makeup or style hair. Why, then, do we see the worldly mirrors of others’ opinions and our own presumptuous thoughts to view our inner selves? These types of mirrors not only give us a false perception of ourselves, but also they wound us and hold us captive the reflected ugliness of fear, guilt, worry, condemnation, and perfectionism. Many of us see and feel the paralyzing effects of these ugly burdens, but we have no idea how to take them off. Consequently, we continually live in the destructive trap of insecurity, knowing deep down there is more to life than what we are experiencing. Seeing Yourself in the Mirror of Truth illuminates the destructive impact that deception and lies have on your identity. Not only will you become acquainted with the truth that sets you free from this trap, but also you will be taught how to tame, shape, and polish your personality using God’s mirror. Just like you partner with the mirror each morning to polish your appearance, you will learn how to partner with God through His Word to see and remove your ugly insecurities as you willingly let God transform you into a beautiful woman in Jesus Christ. Are you ready to look into the mirror of truth?
Healing from the Heart: Restoring Alignment to Revitalize Your Body, Soul, and Spirit by Dana Grindal
Life can hurt, but complete healing is possible.
We have all been wounded. The pain can hit deep and settle into our bodies and souls. In reaction to our pain, beliefs and patterns emerge that hinder the way we see ourselves, relate to others, and move through life. Pain slows us down and drains our mental and emotional energy.
Pain holds us back.
Modern society provides many opportunities to numb, hide or escape symptoms of pain without addressing the root cause. However, until the source of our pain is identified and remedied, it will stay alive in us, manifesting as physical and emotional pain, toxic thoughts, anxiety, depression, and more.
Everyone is unique in his or her response to life’s hurts, but as explained in Healing from the Heart:
- We can recognize our pain and respond in a way that puts us on the path to healing—and keeps us there.
- Healing happens in layers; each chapter guides us through these layers simply and concisely.
- Soul Connection questions provide valuable tools to connect us to our own heart at a deeper level while Spirit Connection exercises offer the opportunity to release the pain in prayer.
- Practical applications empower us to heal from the heart level (the soul), which not only relieves pain but provides the freedom needed to live the abundant life for which we are designed!
The principles and processes found throughout Dana’s authentic telling of her own journey from pain to wellness have helped hundreds experience the life-changing power of inner healing. Furthermore, Healing from the Heart features a refreshing combination of story, instruction and journaling prompts that lead to the peace and revitalization for which we’ve been searching.
Healing from the Heart is ideal for group study as well as individual discovery.
It’s Time To Uncover Your Original Blueprint: 10 Steps To Re-discover The Real You and Your Purpose by Sonyia Graham
Passive assimilation is a silent and unspoken epidemic- one in which a person gets lost in someone else’s dreams, aspirations, and purpose while sacrificing their own. When I started writing this book eleven years ago, I thought this would be for women. But, the more I came to understand this epidemic and the more research I did. I came to the realization that gender has nothing to do with it. What determines whether or not someone becomes a victim of this epidemic is the role a person- male or female- chooses to take in their relationship. That being said, this is not a relationship-bashing book. It is a book written to promote self-rediscovery, self-empowerment, self-love and self-awareness in partnership with God.
Your trials do not have to define you. When you embrace God’s love in the midst of life’s pressures, you are able to overcome them! In this book, you will learn how to:
- Overcome a calloused heart from offenses and life’s painful experiences.
- Overcome paralyzing fears, deceptive lies and unhealthy environments.
- Overcome your old identity, limited understanding and compromise.
- Overcome your own plans, judgments, condemnation and dependencies.
- Overcome fretting, worry, impatience, striving and weariness.
- Overcome isolation, passivity, pride and old ways of fighting.
- Overcome self-righteousness, self-protection and selfish ambitions.
As you journey with God in His love through the faulty layers, deep crevices, wounded fragments, and broken places within yourself, He will use the heat and pressure of this life to transform the limitations and shortcomings of those unrefined “carbon atoms” within to mold you into a beautiful diadem for the King’s Crown. Not only will you become a sparkling splendor in the Lord’s hand, but even more, you will become one with Him in glory and in making Him known to the world.
- Communicate more effectively
- Grow spiritually
- Manage conflict powerfully
- Adopt a view on physically intimacy that leads to intimacy
- Place leisure in it’s correct place
- Assume the correct selfless posture
- Parent with the correct compass, and more….
We intend to help parents and children SERVE whole-heartedly and biblically, LOVE through a personal relationship with Christ and people, PRAY continuously as a means to empower families, then REPEAT by sharing with others what is learned. Our daily habits are the activities that drive our outcomes and help us obtain the things we want in life. In this book we discuss how simple and possible it is to help your child be successful, even at an early age. The framework is about installing what is found to be a major component missing in many families called a “Servant Heart”.
Dane and Paola’s heart is to help families return to the essence of serving, living, and restoring the way Christ intended us to live.

Soul Whisperer: Why the Church Must Change the Way It ViewsEvangelism by Gary Comer
What if we changed the face of evangelism?
In a time when so many have a negative perception of evangelism, what if a new model was entirely biblical, loaded with skills, and more effective? Soul Whisperer shifts the emphasis from “telling” to a “drawing” paradigm. It develops biblically the pattern of Jesus, who did not give static presentations but rather customized his words to each hearer. By learning his ways, our words, too, can have pinpointed impact! Christians will discover how to draw out first, in order to read their friends and discern the relevant appeal of the gospel. In this way, the style is far more dynamic. It adapts! Understanding the non-believer’s unique starting point will determine a distinct path. By creating a conversation about spiritual influence and what is involved in faith formation, this book charts ways for Christians to go deeper in evangelistic relationships. Most importantly, Soul Whisperer infuses skills that will shape a more Christ-likened missional disciple.
ReMission: Rethinking How Church Leaders Create Movement by Gary Comer
A systemic disease is lurking inside the church that is derailing it from what God intended it to be, to know, and to do. That disease manifests in practical ignorance and isolation. If the church is to be healthy and thriving, its members must gain the needed know-how and skill sets to meaningfully engage with their increasingly difficult-to-reach unsaved neighbors, communities, and cultures in productive conversations about the good news of Jesus Christ. In other words, there must be a re-missioning of the body of Christ. ReMission practically equips leaders with tried-and-tested solutions that can outwardly mobilize a congregation, small group, or nonprofit ministry, and substantially increase the spiritual vitality of the body of Christ, both locally and globally.

The Believers Authority by Kenneth E. Hagin
“A few of us have barely gotten to the edge of that authority, but before Jesus comes again, there’s going to be a whole company of believers who will rise up and with the authority that is theirs, …and they will do the work that God intended they should do.
