The Braniff household includes their two biological daughters, Kennedy, 12, and Shelby 10; Rosie, 7, who was adopted from China with Down syndrome; Noah, 7, adopted from Congo; Jonah 5, adopted domestically; and finally, Ivy and Amelia, their one year old twins who were adopted as embryos, and implanted in Angela, who gave birth to them. In fact, after the book was finished, they joyfully welcomed a new baby into their home, Benjamin, through adoption, making them now a family of ten! Love Without Borders shares Angela's relatable, humorous, and honest view of motherhood. Angela chronicles her journey to discover God’s purpose for her life. For years she walked the safe, expected path, until one day she could feel God calling her to boldly step out and follow him into new places, which led her to raise a large, non-traditional family that looked different than she ever imagined. It was a winding path to motherhood, complete with heartbreak from failed adoptions, challenging pregnancies, and secondary infertility, but through it all Angela found the unique adventure God had for her. She has shared her family’s stories on her popular YouTube channel, This Gathered Nest, and now invites us in to go deeper and listen to where God might be calling us to go and who we’ve been tasked with loving, no matter how unusual (or just plain crazy) it may sound! The beauty of God’s plan is he uses imperfect people to bring about perfectly beautiful stories.

Let us begin with the notion that there is nothing like a blueprint for a successful dating relationship or marriage. No one can teach anyone how to enter into and maintain a perfect marriage or relationship or avoid the common mistakes people make that wreck marriages and relationships. Not even a counselor, psychologist, or minister or anyone else can provide a plan that can guarantee a successful romance, marriage, love affair, or a dating relationship. There are just too many variables involved that make such a prediction impractical, if not impossible. Relationships, marriages, and love affairs work as a result of the time, effort, and energy put into it by those involved. For some, everything works out just fine and everybody is happy, but sometimes, the opposite happens and the question becomes: why do some succeed, while others fail? It gets even more complicated when one of the two people involved is from another race, country, or culture.
From the founder of This Gathered Nest YouTube channel, an uplifting personal story of Angela's unusual path to becoming the mother to seven children through various methods of adoption and biological approaches, encouraging women and mothers to embrace the unique purpose that God has put in their lives. A wife and mom, Angela Braniff and her husband oversee a house full of laughter and love thanks to their seven children--all from varying backgrounds--who range in age from twelve to one. The Braniff household includes their two biological daughters, Kennedy, 12, and Shelby 10; Rosie, 7, who was adopted from China with special needs; Noah, 7, adopted from Congo; Jonah 5, adopted domestically; and finally, Ivy and Amelia, their one year old twins who were adopted as embryos, and implanted in Angela, who gave birth to them. Angela's love for life and her family radiates through everything she does. In Love Without Borders she opens her heart and her home to share her story, offering a relatable and honest view of motherhood and love. With both humor and honesty, Angela chronicles her journey to discover God's purpose for her and how she welcomed it--even though it meant raising a large, non-traditional family that looked different than she ever imagined. She talks about diverse aspects of her kids' lives, from the challenging adoption process, to secondary infertility, and homeschooling. And most important, she reflects on coming to terms with her own sense of identity and worth, on learning to accept there is no "perfect" way to be a woman, wife, and mother, and on embracing and sharing God's message that love has no borders. Funny, moving, and deeply spiritual, Love Without Borders will inspire other women to discover their own purpose--and to cherish those who God has put in their lives. Love Without Borders includes 16 pages of color photographs.

A decade after migrating to the US, he is forlorn and guilt-ridden, but a very wealthy man. As misunderstandings and missteps threaten the undeniable attraction between Shahnawaz and Claire, can they find a true and healing love?

In this parallel story of forbidden yearning, can Peter cut through the fog of misconceptions amidst the futile and violent conflict in Afghanistan, to win the hand of Marriam even as the courageous woman rises to the occasion?"

Can she find love without her famous television name tripping her yet again? Or will the realities of life and the dangers that lurk snatch away her only real chance at finding true love?
To what degree does culture facilitate or distort the Christian faith, the gospel of Jesus, and the life of the church? In America, the distortion is enormous. Gospel Without Borders carefully examines the complex intersection of culture and faith in America, providing insights that allow for better understanding and a more genuine experience of biblical and historic Christianity. Gospel Without Borders analyzes the formative and interactive roles that human nature and cultural history play in contemporary expressions of Christianity in America. It outlines their profound but little appreciated influence upon the shape and scope of Christian faith within society-at-large, the church, and the lives of individuals. The study illuminates the dimensions of a largely unheralded gospel message characterized by unimpeded faith that fully accords with the kingdom Jesus stridently proclaimed. It outlines the dimensions of faith freed from the disappointing forms of "culturalized" Christianity that always prove insufficient on a personal level and woefully inadequate to the demands of contemporary life within our globalizing world. Today's world can only be effectively impacted through a "gospel without borders"--a compelling gospel most Americans have yet to hear, and too many Christians--of every cultural and denominational background--have yet to fully embrace.
VanderWilt examines the concept of "koinonia" (communion) from multiple perspectives, and evaluates the contribution of Jean-Marie Tillard to the ecclesiology of communion, with emphasis on the concepts of participation, presence, sacrifice, and salvation.
After living in El Salvador and witnessing the cost of the political violence and economic hardship there, Mark and Louise Zwick founded Casa Juan Diego. Mercy Without Borders tells the story of the beginnings of the Catholic Worker in Houston, a city that has become a destination for waves of refugees from Mexico and Central America. Over the years, they have received the poor, the weary, and the destitute, seeing only the face of Christ regardless of immigration status. In addition to sharing their stories of Casa Juan Diego and many of its guests, the Zwicks analyze some of the causes of the economic imbalances that result in destitution south of the U.S. border, in countries where people toil in factories for little or nothing, only to see the fruits of their labor shipped to the affluent north.
