Women are often overwhelmed by the demands and circumstances of life, resulting in stress, fear, worry, impatience, fatigue, frustration and even depression. The emotional tolls are great but often result in physical symptoms, such as weight gain, insomnia, headaches, anxiety attacks and digestive problems. Women have a list of things to be overwhelmed with, but most of the time it comes down to their to-do list, which includes working, nurturing, loving, exercising, cleaning, cooking and more. We also tend to use comparison as a way of determining our value and our success. With all that has to be done, it would be much easier if everyone would do what we want them to do, but alas, our lack of being able to control others ends up overwhelming us as well.
In A Woman Overwhelmed, Hayley shares biblical insights and personal stories to show we were created to be overwhelmed, not by life, but by God. She offers a glimpse at the comedy of an overwhelmed life while encouraging readers to discover the depths and heights of God’s love and power. When we learn to be overwhelmed by God, the fruit in our lives goes from rotten (exhibiting selfishness, thanklessness, impatience, harshness, immorality, unfaithfulness or a lack of self-control) by focusing on the wrong things to fragrant (living with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control) by living focused on God.
We were made to be overwhelmed by the goodness and grace of God. For that reason, our hearts search for something bigger than us. When our mission in life is to accomplish our own plans, dreams, hopes and desires, we are fertile ground for too much to do and not enough time or resources to do it. We naturally become overwhelmed with them,” writes DiMarco. “The Mission of Me is not a road to emotional or spiritual success because there will be difficult times and devastating failures. However, the Mission of God, though fraught with difficulty, sees success because God will not be frustrated. When we align our will and mission in life with His, we see life through different lenses, and suddenly everything that would have overwhelmed us is now a tool for our good.”
Are you loving, joyful, peaceful, patient, kind, good, faithful, gentle, AND self-controlled?
Most of the time? Sometimes? How about when life gets hard or marriage gets tough? Whatever your answer may be, the good news is that you are not alone.
Best-selling author, mother, and wife Hayley DiMarco understands the challenges we all face and answers the question at hand: How can you be the woman God is calling you to be—a woman who bears the fruit of the Spirit in your marriage and in the daily grind of life?
To help you grow, Hayley explores the biblical significance of all nine fruits of the Spirit, explaining how each fruit first begins to grow and then how each impacts your day-to-day life and marriage.
She writes like a close friend, openly sharing stories of her own failures to be spiritually fruitful as well as her relational struggles for control, authority, and respect. Ultimately, Hayley teaches us how even the rockiest of marriages can blossom and generate the fruit God intends to produce.
It’s time to stop borrowing or faking your faith . . . own it!
The feature film Grace Unplugged tells the story of Grace Trey, an eighteen year-old small town pastor’s daughter who is also a phenomenal singer. But when she abruptly leaves home and finds instant Hollywood fame, the faith and relationships she grew up with are put to the test.
As seen in the movie, Own It challenges readers by asking what it means to really “own” your faith rather than just automatically or blindly following in the footsteps of friends or parents. Best-selling authors Michael and Hayley DiMarco will help you navigate what to do when faith meets real world challenges.
Renting, borrowing, or faking your faith is a waste of time. Own It is all about the supernatural reality that when you take hold of your faith, it’s really God’s love that takes hold of you.

What if everything you’ve heard about purity wasn’t quite right?
True Purity isn’t only about waiting and keeping your body under wraps—it’s about being purely God’s in every way. Any desire that prevents you from giving God 100 percent of your life leads to impurity. But here’s the amazing truth about purity:
Purity isn’t something you achieve for yourself—your purity is really God’s job.
True purity is something that is yours solely because of the One who makes you pure. It’s when you embrace Jesus as your source of purity that God sees you as pure.
Hayley and Michael DiMarco show you what purity looks like not only when it relates to sex and your body, but also in every area of life. They explain how it involves all of your thoughts, desires, and actions. Because even the best intentions, pledges, rings, and willpower will never equal the true purity found in Christ.
The Big Picture is a gospel-centered book for teenagers and young adults that tells the story of the God who has always been with man and, through his Son and Spirit, always will. Best-selling authors Hayley and Michael DiMarco guide readers to be more aware of God’s presence with us today and better sense His call for us to make disciples of all nations.
The gospel didn’t begin in the New Testament. It was there, “In the beginning,” at the genesis of everything. Across the whole of human history, God’s grand narrative of love and redemption has been unfolding, a love gloriously displayed at the cross. This is the story of Jesus, and all history and Scripture point us to this good news.
Teenagers live in a world defined by pressure—and with no shortage of opinions on how they should handle it. In The Big Picture, teens will develop a bigger perspective of Scripture and how the story of Jesus Christ ties it all together and how He should be our main focus. Nothing brings life into focus like the gospel!
