With Fresh Eyes: 60 Insights into the Miraculously Ordinary from a Woman Born Blind, by Karen Wingate, invites readers to reawaken to the wonder of what they observe in creation--great and small--and how God is working in everyday moments.

Discipled Leader: Inspiration from a Fortune 500 Executive for Transforming Your Workplace by Pursuing Christ, by Preston Poore, which discusses where faith and exceptional leadership intersect, was called "a must-read for every leader" by Chick-fil-A chairman and CEO Dan Cathy. Also in the General Nonfiction category, Spouse in the House: Rearranging Our Attitudes to Make Room for Each Other by Cynthia Ruchti and Becky Melby is a guidebook for married partners to learn to co-exist in the same house without co-exhausting each other.

Buck Storm's The Sound the Sun Makes is literary Americana with humor, heart, and a whole lot of twists to keep readers guessing--not to mention a healthy dose of faith.

The Indebted Earl is the third in Erica Vetsch's Serendipity & Secrets Regency romance series, following a couple through a death-bed promise, a marriage of convenience, a spy mission, and an unexpected--and unwelcome--title.

Sharon Mondragón makes her debut with The Unlikely Yarn of the Dragon Lady, a "charming tale of knitting, faith, and change" (Publishers Weekly) that beautifully illustrates the power of women across generations to reach people for Christ.

God Made Us Just Right, written by Allia Zobel Nolan and illustrated by Katy Hudson, is full of adorable animals who help kids understand that God has a reason for creating us all differently.

Winners will be announced on June 1, 2022. For more information on the Selah Awards, visit the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference website.
