5. The Lipstick Gospel Devotional: 90 Days of Saying Yes to a God Who Is Anything But Boring
Author: by Stephanie May Wilson
We have to stop talking about God like He’s boring. The way we often talk about Him, you’d think He was a hall monitor with a clipboard, yelling things like, No running! Keep your voices down! And Do that one more time, and you’ll have detention!
It’s no wonder our faith so easily grows stale, that we find ourselves religiously checking boxes and calling it a day. Now, God absolutely has ideas for how to best live our lives, and of course, that includes things He says not to do, but that’s not the whole story.
When we talk about God like this, we forget about all the other things He is: How powerful God is, how deeply good He is, how loving He is He’s also so much fun! God is a God of delight, and best friends, and laughing so hard you cry (or pee your pants).
He’s trips to the mountains, and your toes in the sand, and love beyond anything you even knew your heart could hold. He’s healing, and redemption, and the best friend you could ever have. We serve an incredible, gigantic, mighty, adventurous God, and The Lipstick Gospel Devotional will help you get to know Him better.

For years, it was dangerous for African Americans to travel in the United States. Because of segregation, Black travelers couldn’t eat, sleep, or even get gas at most white-owned businesses. The Green Book listed hotels, restaurants, department stores, gas stations, recreational destinations, and other businesses that were safe for Black travelers.

It took courage to be listed in the Green Book, and the stories from those who took a stand against racial segregation are recorded and celebrated. This young reader’s edition of Candacy Taylor’s critically acclaimed adult book Overground Railroad includes her own photographs of Green Book sites, as well as archival photographs and interviews with people who owned and used these facilities.
