Create in Me a Heart of Mercy
A Bible Study to Help You Receive and Extend Christ’s Mercy
In our divisive and unforgiving world, we need mercy more than ever. When we extend grace toward one another despite faults, mistakes, and differences of opinion, we model the kind of longsuffering patience and love that God shows toward us. But how do you cultivate a merciful heart in the midst of a culture where everyone seems quick to judge and slow to forgive? Where do you begin?
Create in Me a Heart of Mercy is a six-week Bible study that will help you
– discover the transformational power that mercy has in and through the life of the believer
– learn how to extend mercy to others, even in circumstances where it feels difficult or undeserved
– experience the freedom and purpose that come from multiplying mercy in a world that desperately needs it
The mercy that God has shown us through Jesus is meant to flow through us to the rest of the world as a powerful witness to God’s love and forgiveness. Join (in)courage and let God create in you a heart of mercy!

Cora Cooks Pancit
Cora loves being in the kitchen, but she always gets stuck doing the kid jobs like licking the spoon. One day, however, when her older sisters and brother head out, Cora finally gets the chance to be Mama’s assistant chef. And of all the delicious Filipino dishes that dance through Cora’s head, she and Mama decide to make pancit, her favorite noodle dish.
With Mama’s help, Cora does the grown-up jobs like shredding the chicken and soaking the noodles (perhaps Mama won’t notice if she takes a nibble of chicken or sloshes a little water on the floor). Cora even gets to stir the noodles in the pot carefully– while Mama supervises. When dinner is finally served, her siblings find out that Cora did all their grown-up tasks, and Cora waits anxiously to see what everyone thinks of her cooking.
Dorina Lazo Gilmore’s text delightfully captures the warmth between mother and daughter as they share a piece of their Filipino heritage. With bright and charming illustrations by Kristi Valiant, Cora’s family comes alive as Cora herself becomes the family’s newest little chef.

Most of us would like to experience God’s glory but we are not sure how to pursue it. Dorina Lazo Gilmore serves as a kind of “sherpa,” helping readers chase His glory in the most unexpected places and surprising ways. Using the metaphor of life as a race, Glory Chasers helps people discover God’s glory in both a Biblical and personal context. Dorina unfolds her story of discovering God’s glory in 2014 when she chose “glory” as her theme for the year. She had no idea how God would use that theme to challenge her, inspire her and lift her during the darkest year of her life. These words help readers who face all kinds of uphill battles press on with perseverance and hope. Sessions explore:
Glory Chasers is perfect for individual or group Bible study, exploring the topic of “glory.” Each week includes an opening essay and six days of reading and creative activities journeying through the Bible. This workbook also includes some “bonus glory” features, including a worship playlist for each week and a leader’s guide at the back.
Flourishing Together: Cultivating a Fruitful Life in Christ
How do you flourish when life feels heavy? Maybe He wants us to stop planning and striving. Maybe He wants us to focus less on producing and more on abiding. Maybe it’s time to allow the Master Gardener to prune, nourish and cultivate our lives so we can flourish together for His glory. God designed each one of us to flourish. He also grants us privileges and gifts to help others flourish in the garden of life. Flourishing Together invites women to dig deep in the soil of faith and cultivate a life in Christ that is fruitful. The study could be considered a sequel to the author’s Glory Chaser Bible study. In Flourishing Together, Dorina articulates how God helped her move forward in a new marriage and career following her first husband’s death. These words help believers who feel parched and disconnected from the Vine to root themselves in Biblical truth and find rest. Sessions include:
- Week One – Plant
- Week Two – Prune
- Week Three – Rest
- Week Four – Nourish
- Week Five – Cultivate
- Week Six – Bloom
