Finding Your Dream: From Famine to Feast - the Life of Joseph

Finding Your Dream is a three - month devotional journey into the life of Joseph in Genesis 30 - 50, leading disciples through the autumn season of life, when the colors of God - given vision seem to have faded and died. But it can be especially in these times, Rubietta writes, that God sends new dreams: "We find our dream when we find ourselves well and deeply loved, forgiven, and called by God into a life of impact, a life that changes us for the good of others."

Rubietta leads us through ninety - one warm and substantial devotional readings, each deeply rooted in scriptural role models and each resolved with her trademark "Traveling Mercy" benediction, punctuated with a practical, brief "Note to Self."

Finding Your Dream is an invitation from God to come, gather perspective, and see again our own dreams through Joseph's eyes - to find fresh application for our own souls and revived visions for our own journeys.

"A book worthy of ritual re-readings." - Leonard Sweet, best-selling author and speaker

Resting Place:

A Personal Guide to Spiritual Retreats
(InterVarsity Press: 2005)

A personal retreat. We've never needed it more. We run from one place to the next--from meetings and appointments to our kid's soccer practice, from class to work to choir rehearsal, from the grocery store to small group--and then drop into bed later than we hoped, exhausted and dreading the morning. We want to slow down but don't know how and don't really believe that we can. And often, the idea of a personal retreat--time for solitude and silence--makes us feel as anxious as all our frenzied rushing. What in the world would we do with an hour, an afternoon or (gulp!) a whole day of solitude with God?

These retreats help us enter Psalm 23 rest, a place of true rest and trust in our loving, gentle Shepherd. Full of quotes to contemplate, Scripture to meditate on, questions, prayer and journaling ideas, and ideas for creativity, Jane Rubietta leads us to and through times of silence and solitude that will follow us into our everyday world as we learn to allow Jesus to guide, comfort and restore us.

Grace Points:
Growth and Guidance in Times of Change

Jane Rubietta has written this book to help us find God in the wilderness of life changes. Here you'll find healing through encouraging stories from women's lives, Scripture, reflection questions and much more.

God has good gifts for you even in the wilderness. Come and find them!

How to Keep the Pastor You Love
(InterVarsity Press, 2002)

“Overwhelm your pastor with love and appreciation”
(I Thes. 5:12-13)

33% of pastors leave churches due to conflicts with the congregation, with goals or expectations

In one denomination alone, 100 ministers are forced out of ministry each month

The average tenure of all clergy is 2.3 years

When church members need comfort or spiritual guidance, they go to the pastor. But where do pastors go when they have a concern?

"After a few years in ministry I saw so many casualties across the country - broken pastors, church conflict, abandoned callings, ruined marriages, too-brief stays in church, burnout," says Jane Rubietta. "And very few denominations have a structure in place that is confidential, caring, affordable, and accessible to help them."

Designed for individual and group use, with practical application points for parishioner and pastor alike, How to Keep the Pastor You Love enables the congregation to become part of that support system for ministers. Rubietta's book helps develop stronger pastor-congregation relationships with open communication, accountability, support and honesty.

How to Keep the Pastor You Love educates congregations and church leaders on issues pastors face, such as frequent moves and expectations of the church, the pastor's spiritual life, care for the pastor's spouse and children, and financial compensation.
