Why I Stayed
by Gayle Haggard
On November 2, 2006, Gayle Haggard’s life changed forever. That was the day that her husband, Ted Haggard, founder of the 14,000-member New Life Church in Colorado Springs and the President of the NAE, confessed to her the truth. In Why I Stayed, Gayle walks us through the choices she made in her darkest hours. On the day and in the months ahead, everything in her life was at stake―what she believed, the husband she thought she knew, and the church community she had worked tirelessly to establish with her husband and friends in the basement of their home more than two decades ago. Out of this crucible in her life, Gayle has discovered a newfound passion for the central message of the Bible―the liberating message of forgiveness and love. Why I Stayed is a must-read. It paints a picture of what less-than-perfect people, across this nation and all over the world, desperately need―a community of family and faith that offers healing love and a path to restoration.

Courageous Grace: Following the Way of Christ
by Gayle Haggard
As a Bible teacher, Gayle had taught for decades about the amazing power of grace in a person’s life. Yet it took a crisis in her husband’s life and the crumbling of her own life around her for her to have an epiphany about the true nature of grace. In Courageous Grace, Gayle chronicles and explains her newfound insights.
Despite common misperceptions, grace is not safe. It’s not easy. Frankly, it takes courage to show grace to those who deserve less. Oftentimes, the person showing God’s grace gets counted among the sinners, just as Jesus experienced centuries ago. Gayle explores the story of Jesus forgiving the adulterous woman to reveal the courageous side of showing grace.
We live in a society that vacillates between glorifying sin and crucifying those who fall. Gayle encourages us to take the road less traveled―daring to do the hard work of showing God’s grace to the sinners among us. It’s what followers of Christ are called to do. Order Now!

The Tree of Life
Ted Haggard’s booklet, The Tree of Life, An Introduction, is a 16 page, 4,000 word Bible study on the Garden of Eden and the how the decision Adam and Eve had to make between Life and Knowledge of Good and Evil applies to every one of us every day. This booklet is excellent for small groups, Sunday school classes and a pastoral study guide. All human beings naturally live their lives making decisions based on a scale between what is evil and what is good, based on our own knowledge of it. Haggard argues in this booklet that this type of self evaluation and evaluation of others is deadly, and that the only way to find God’s perfect life for us is to consume life himself, Jesus Christ, and live life in Christ rather than living according to the knowledge of good and evil.
