A Mustard Seed

(A Woman Like Me Book 1)

by Sadie Cuffe

A Mustard Seed

What if you asked God to shake up your life and, when He did, you lost your friend, your marriage, and your faith? Susanna Jacobs longs for a change, but she can’t put her desire into words. According to her friends, she has it all: a devoted, if workaholic, husband, a beautiful independent-minded daughter, a successful business. But something’s missing.

As Susanna struggles to find the missing piece, God dumps a thrown-away Bible into her lap. From the moment she touches the red cover, Susanna’s intrigued by the name Joanne written inside the flyleaf. As she searches for this mystery woman to return the Bible to its rightful owner, Susanna travels down an increasingly dark and dangerous path.

A Woman Like Me/A Mustard Seed begins the story of every 21st century woman, bridging the gap between contemporary realistic fiction and personal faith. Walk in the shoes of one of us for a year. Live and breathe in those 365 days threaded with smiles and tears, woven in strands of ordinary moments, life-changing opportunities, and gut-wrenching self-revelations. An excellent read for book clubs and Christian women’s circles, A Mustard Seed is packed with intimate scenes from a slice-of-a-woman’s-life we all share as sisters. It’ll keep you hopeful and heart-broken with every page turn.







Jesus said He was going to make ready a dwelling place for you (John 14:2-3). But where is His dwelling place? In heaven? In your heart?

The answer is both.

Dwelling explores the transformational experience received through deepening relationship with Christ. Using imagery, symbolism, story, and an abundance of Scripture, and combining the best knowledge in neurology and psychology with impassioned Biblical analysis, Dwelling leads you into a deep dive of personal exploration and growth in faith, taking the reader by the hand and leading them to the path of partnership with Christ to prepare for His indwelling.

While other books might offer a list of steps or suggest simplistic answers to complex issues, Dwelling faces those issues head-on, without fear, and challenges you to look in the mirror and acknowledge the hard work you and Jesus must do together to achieve holiness and live in the Kingdom of God.

In Dwelling you will:
Discover the path to your new dwelling
Learn how Jesus prepares your heart
Challenge your old ways of thinking, feeling, and acting
Establish a new foundation built on oneness with Christ
Rebuild new patterns using God’s materials
Anchor yourself in the pillars of love, faith, and freedom

Through these truths, Dwelling enlightens both believers and nonbelievers in how to live in the Kingdom of God now.
