  • Obedience Paradox : Finding True Freedom In Marriage

    $12.95

    Few concepts in Christianity are more misunderstood than obedience. Words like submissive, subject, and obedient can appear utterly incompatible with the fundamental equality that Jesus offers to us in baptism. Yet headship and obedience within marriage has been preached authoritatively throughout the Church’s history.

    When properly understood and lived out, obedience is, in fact, liberating. The Obedience Paradox illuminates the subject by examining the relationship between husband and wife in marriage as an image of Christ’s relationship to the Church. Presenting the sexual complementarity of husband and wife as an expression of gift, this book probes the meaning and power of receptivity in a relationship.

    While a marriage certainly involves mutual giving and receiving, a husband most authentically lives headship when he acts as a generous giver towards his wife. Correspondingly, a wife practices authentic obedience when she graciously receives of her husband’s self-gift. Understanding obedience as the free reception of a gift unveils its unique potential to make us more free and to bring about deeper spiritual union between persons, both human and divine.

  • I Wish My Dad

    $27.99

    I Wish My Dad . . .: what a simple way to start to a sentence. But those four words hold the power to heal wounds men may not even know they carry.

    From author, speaker, and social entrepreneur Romal Tune and his son, Jordan, comes this tour de force for fathers and sons about healing the unfinished business between them. What do sons wish they had received from their fathers? What might honest, healing conversations between fathers and sons look like? Tune was raised mostly without a father. He and his dad connected briefly when he was a teenager, and then had no relationship for decades. After years of inner work via therapy and faith, Tune realized that neither he nor his dad possessed what they needed to live up to each other’s expectations. He began to wonder if other men also longed to have vulnerable conversations with their fathers–about good memories, about pain, and about what their relationship could still become.

    So he sat down with seventeen men of diverse ages, ethnicities, and socioeconomic backgrounds for I Wish My Dad conversations. In the pages of this book, he invites us into the room as the men unpack fractured relationships with their fathers, learn to overcome emotional pain, defeat life-limiting beliefs, and describe risks they took to heal and connect with their fathers. Tune also offers us strategies and prompts for initiating our own I Wish My Dad conversations. And with no pretense, he and Jordan recount their own I Wish My Dad interview, which helped them chart the way toward a transformed relationship.

    I Wish My Dad helps fathers and their sons talk about difficult dynamics and begin emotional healing. The lessons in these pages will free us to have–and become–the kind of dad we wish for.

  • Bringing Up Kids When Church Lets You Down

    $26.99

    “This book is about the various places and ways that uncertainty shows up for parents who, having left or altered the faith they once knew, now must decide what to give their kids. It’s about church attendance, Bible memorization, school choices, and sex talks. It’s about forging new paths in racial justice and creation care while the intractable voices in your head call you a pagan Marxist for doing so.”

    After the spectacular implosion of her ministry career, Bekah McNeel was left disillusioned and without the foundation of certainty she had built her life on. But rather than leaving the Christian faith altogether, she hung out around the edges, began questioning oversimplified categories of black and white that she had been taught were sacred, and became comfortable living in gray areas while starting a new career in journalism.

    Then she had kids.

    From the moment someone asked if she was going to have her first child baptized, Bekah began to wonder if the conservative evangelical Christianity she grew up with was really something she wanted to give her children. That question only became more complicated when she had her second child months before White evangelicals carried Donald Trump to victory in the 2016 presidential election. Soon, Bekah found that other parents were asking similar questions as they broke with their fundamentalist religious upbringing and took on new values: Could they raise their kids to live with both the security of faith and the freedom of open-mindedness? To value both Scripture and social justice? To learn morality without shame?

    In Bringing Up Kids When Church Lets You Down, Bekah calls on her skills as a journalist and gathers voices from history, scholarship, and her own community to guide others who, like her, are on a quest to shed the false certainty and toxic perfectionism of their past to become better, healthier parents-while still providing strong spiritual foundations for their children. She writes with humor and empathy, providing wise reflections (but not glib answers!) on difficult parenting topics while reminding us all along that we are not alone, even when we break away from the crowd.

  • Build A Stronger Marriage

    $11.99

    All marriages face seasons of distress and frustration–times when thanks to a variety of factors you don’t feel as close as you once were. Bestselling author and longtime FamilyLife Today cohost Bob Lepine helps you work through the challenges that emerge in every marriage, causing couples to become isolated and alienated. He helps you make the adjustments necessary to build the kind of marriage God intends for you to have and encourages you back on the path to oneness.

Seeing marriage from God’s point of view is the path to oneness. You will be able to trade blame, dissatisfaction, and disappointment for a stronger, richer, and more rewarding relationship. Each chapter ends with a simple assignment that will help you get on and stay on the path to oneness. There is hope for your marriage! God is on this journey with you!

    Build a Stronger Marriage is part of the Ask the Christian Counselor series. This series walks readers through their deepest and most profound questions. Each question is unpacked by an experienced counselor that gives readers the tools to understand their struggle and how the gospel brings hope and healing to the problem they are facing.

  • God Made Babies

    $16.99

    “Where do babies come from?” This common question all too often leaves parents perplexed about what to say and when to say it. Justin and Lindsey Holcomb tackle this tough question in a common sense, biblical way. They help parents start the conversation with their children about sex by giving them the basic tools to guide them-including specific biblical content and age-appropriate ways of talking to children at different stages.

    The Holcombs along with illustrator Trish Mahoney have been helping parents tackle hard subjects with children for many years, beginning with the award-winning God Made All of Me: A Book to Help Children Protect Their Bodies. Now they bring their expertise to the all-important conversation about sex in God Made Babies: Helping Parents Start the Conversation about Sex. Instead of leaving this conversation to “experts” or to the culture, they equip parents to answer questions about sex in the right way at the right time.

    Drawing from the story of creation and how God made the living world to reproduce, God Made Babies helps children to understand the gift of procreation in the light of God’s goodness and care. Rather than waiting to have this conversation with their child at the “perfect” time, the authors encourage parents to answer questions at every stage with just the right amount of information.

    God Made Babies is part of the God Made Me series which equips parents to have important, impactful conversations with their children, helping them to grow in understanding of God, themselves, and others. Each book in the series contains a special section just for parents and caregivers that provides biblical guidance and offers additional information and resources for talking about the topic addressed in the story.

  • How Our Family Prays Each Day

    $16.95

    Are you looking for an easy way to teach your young children how to talk with Jesus throughout the day?

    How Our Family Prays Each Day is a read-aloud book for children ages 4 to 8 that emphasizes the importance of praying and spending time with God each day.

    This 32-page hardcover book includes charming, full-color illustrations that depict eight-year-old Marty and his family-parents Joseph and Maria, siblings Zelie and Baby Lou, and their pet pelican, Pascha-as they find reasons to pray throughout their day.

    From their first “Good morning, God!” to their final bedtime cuddle, the family will help your children learn an important spiritual lesson: We can talk to God whenever we need him-like before a game or test, or when someone is hurt or struggling-not just during Mass or family prayer time. The book also includes a prayer for your family to say together when you’re done reading.

    How Our Family Prays Each Day was written by psychotherapist Gregory K. Popcak, illustrated by Jacob Flores-Popcak, and developed by the Catholic HOM (Households of Mission) program at the Peyton Institute for Domestic Church Life at Holy Cross Family Ministries.

  • Gods Plan For Your Marriage

    $17.95

    This life is preparation for eternity, and from the beginning, God created marriage to help married couples become saints. Indeed, God has given to married couples the profound gift of being able to fulfill the purpose of their creation through, with, and in each other. Marriage is a foreshadowing of Heaven, and each married couple must work with God if their marriage is to be a foretaste of eternity.

    In this thought-provoking and uplifting book, Fr. Robert Altier unpacks the theological significance of the Sacrament of Marriage and brilliantly explains how it has been a part of God’s plan from the beginning – and will eventually be fulfilled at the Marriage Banquet of the Lamb in Heaven. Teeming with practical wisdom and clear examples, these pages delve into the surpassing dignity of marriage as a covenant and a sacrament – and a call to holiness.

    You will learn how the graces and virtues that are conferred in the Sacrament of Marriage transform the unity of the couple – not just in the flesh but in the heart and soul. You’ll learn how to predispose yourself to receive this divine power and, best of all, how to love your spouse more deeply. You will also explore the significance of marriage vows and how men are called to be the spiritual leaders and women are called to be the heart of their families.

    Fr. Altier tackles contemporary questions and concerns, such as the real meaning of “being subject to one another in marriage” and those sensitive and controversial issues regarding sexual morality. Arguably one of the most theologically eye-opening books on marriage ever written, this book also explains:

    * The definitive reasons why marriage can exist only between a man and a woman
    * The characteristics of true love and how to love with heroic charity
    * Why you must become vulnerable in love in order to become receptive to love
    * How marriage leads to overcoming sinful tendencies and makes saints

  • Who Are You And What Have You Done With My Kid

    $27.00

    So you have a Tween! What now? Dr. Amanda Craig knows what it’s like to watch your child go from sweet elementary student to moody tween in the span of just a few years and she’s here to help navigate you through it!

    How do we keep our kids close while cultivating the confidence they’ll need to grow up? How do we navigate the inevitable dips, divides, and potholes? Where do we find the strength, self-awareness, and wisdom that amount to a path forward?

    Despite the parenting opportunities in the tween years, we often spend time focused on academics and the social concerns of elementary school then quickly pivot to worries about safety, drugs, sex and the rebellious behavioral issues of the teen years. We think we’re connecting but we’re not. We miss the neurological explosion that is taking place before us as tweens experience four significant changes that shake them (and us) to their core.

    *Their brains are changing.
    *They feel and experience emotions they do not recognize.
    *They’re hyperaware of themselves.
    *They do not know how to express themselves.

    Most importantly, parents still have a “seat at the table” to make positive impressions on their tweens as they prepare them for the teenage years.

  • Love Pray Listen

    $16.99

    There’s no doubt that your parenting role changes drastically when your kids become adults. You are deeply invested in and affected by your adult children’s choices. Parents whose children choose difficult–even seemingly wrong–paths deal with heartache, disappointment, and the danger of strained or severed relationships. You need a robust theology for long-term parenting gleaned from the discipleship model Jesus exemplified, one that will carefully and thoughtfully apply his way of expressing love.

    Mary DeMuth has written a gracious, practical resource for wisely navigating the rocky terrain of family conflict. In this book, Mary will help you gain a better understanding of your new parental role, find reassurance that you are not alone, develop practical ways to move forward, and discover a clear path for growing in your own spiritual maturity during this phase of parenting.

    Leaning on the truths of 1 Corinthians 13–the “love” chapter–the book reveals that your changing role is not the end of joy. It is an invitation for spiritual growth and a path toward fulfilling relationships with your adult children.

  • Marriage Be Hard

    $26.00

    Discover the keys to upholding your vows while staying sane in this hilariously candid guide to relationships, from the husband-and-wife team of comedian Kevin Fredericks and influencer Melissa Fredericks

    Growing up, Kevin and Melissa Fredericks were taught endless rules around dating, sex, and marriage, but not a lot about what actually makes a relationship work. When they first got married, they felt alone–like every other couple had perfect chemistry while the two of them struggled. There were conversations that they didn’t know they needed to have, fears that affected how they related to each other, and seasons of change that put their marriage to the test.

    Part of their story reads like a Christian fairytale: high school sweethearts, married in college, never sowed any wild oats, with two sons and a thriving marriage. But there’s another side of their story: the night Melissa kicked Kevin out of her car after years of communication problems, the time early in their marriage when Kevin bordered on an emotional affair, the way they’ve used social media and podcasts to conduct a no-holds-barred conversation about forbidden topics like jealousy, divorce, and how to be Christian and sex positive. (Because, as Kevin writes, “Your hormones don’t care about your religious beliefs. Your hormones want you to subscribe to OnlyFans.”)

    In Marriage Be Hard, the authors provide a hilarious and fresh master class on what it takes to build and maintain a lasting relationship. Drawing on interviews with experts and nearly two decades of marriage, they argue that:

    – Compatibility is overrated.
    – Communication is about way more than simply talking.
    – Seeing divorce as an option can actually help your marriage.
    – There’s such a thing as healthy jealousy.

    Real marriage is not automatic. It ain’t no Tesla on the open road. Sometimes it’s a stick shift on a hill in the rain with no windshield wipers. But if you get comfortable visiting–and revisiting–the topics that matter, it can transform your bond with your partner and the life you’re building together.

    Written for those tired of unrealistic relationship books–and for anyone wondering if they’re the only ones breaking all the rules– Marriage Be Hard is a breath of fresh air and the manual you wish existed after you said “I do.”

  • Know Thy Gamer

    $12.99

    Between social media platforms, the videos kids watch online, or the television shows they can now stream from anywhere at any time, keeping up with what our kids are doing has become more difficult than ever. Still, there has not been an influence quite like the video gaming world. For a time, video games were as simple as a blue hedgehog running from one side of the screen to the other. Now, video games create grand adventures of secret societies, alien races that have come to destroy entire galaxies, or dark forces that have arrived to destroy ancient kingdoms.

    Video games can display wondrous environments but can also house blood and gore. They can create adventures that get kids through rainy days but can also trap them in their rooms for untold amounts of time. This leaves many parents with one of two choices. They can either ignore the problems, or they can simply not allow their children to play games at all.

    Drew Dixon, co-founder of Love Thy Nerd, a ministry that exists to be the love of Jesus to nerds and nerd culture , offers a better way. Let’s face it: the digital age has changed the way we parent. So, instead of ignoring what your children are playing or removing the games altogether, Know Thy Gamer offers an opportunity for parents to understand their children and the kinds of games they are playing. By discussing some of the most important movements in the gaming world, Drew guides parents to understanding and loving their gamers through a Christian lens.

  • Why Did God Give My Kids Free Will

    $17.99

    Do you sometimes wonder about God’s plan, specifically why He gave our children free will to do the things they do? More thoughtful and holy thinkers have tackled the question.

    It’s a mystery, mostly, but in its raw form, parental mishaps help us get closer to God. Consider:

    *Learning patience while spitwads land in your drink
    *Embracing the absurdity of teens wearing shorts in the winter
    *Practicing gentleness as you explain (again) why it is important to restock the toilet paper

    Regret, humiliation, control … you can let go of these when you laugh and make peace with the idea that God may just have a sense of humor after all.

    With anecdotes, prayers, devotionals, and reflections, Why Did God Give My Kids Free Will? shows readers the hilarious, spiritual journey of life with kids sure to inspire and unite Christian parents.

  • Living Beyond Sunday

    $11.95

    Incorporate faith into your day-to-day family life.

    Our relationship with God is not supposed to stay within the walls of our parish when we leave Sunday Mass. Instead, faith should transform our hearts, our families, and our homes into a welcoming place to encounter Christ.

    But this isn’t always easy. Home life can be difficult and busy, and it’s easy to get distracted from the point of it all: raising a family of saints.

    In Living Beyond Sunday: Making Your Home a Holy Place, two married couples share what has helped them make their homes a place of encounter with God-a place where saints are being made.

    This book goes beyond the aesthetic or surface-level attributes of a Catholic home. Beyond that, it shares how to foster holiness in all the little moments in Catholic family life.

    Within these pages, Catholics will find:

    *Ways to pray as a family.
    *Guidance for cultivating a peaceful home even with growing children.
    *Ways to strengthen each individual relationship in your family.
    *Practical suggestions for seeking holiness in the midst of family life.
    *Advice on how to take advantage of the daily opportunity to grow in faith as a family.
    *Examples of how to show your children the importance of your marriage.

    Living Beyond Sunday is also a great addition to any marriage preparation program.

  • Sins Of Parents

    $18.95

    If you’re tired of modern psychobabble and are looking for practical advice and spiritual solutions to bring healing to your marriage and your family, this book is for you.

    In this spiritual classic, Fr. Doyle explains the primary purpose of marriage – procreation and education of children – and offers advice on how to revive the true essence of a loving relationship. He will guide you in how to cultivate a home with faith and a nurturing temper so that your family may lead holy, happy, and healthy lives.

    Also found in these pages is priceless wisdom about child-rearing that “may spell the difference between being an affectionate and well-loved parent, or a complete failure.” Fr. Doyle relates how parents sometimes confuse spoiling their children with providing them with love. He further notes the authentic needs, rights, and privileges of children. His insights have made the difference between happy, fruitful families and broken, debilitated families for more than seventy years.

    God warned Moses that the “sins of our fathers” would create generational family dysfunction. Our civilization is reaping the fruits of easy divorce and poor marriage formation. In these pages, you will learn about the root causes behind parental sins of omission and commission, as well as the effects of abandonment, divorce, remarriage, and split families. Fr. Doyle examines their aftermath in youth who suffer from drug addiction, alcoholism, promiscuity, obesity, and crime, along with an amalgam of physical, emotional, and mental-health issues.

    Through Scripture, classical reasoning, popular culture, real-world stories, and historical examples, Fr. Doyle addresses a broad array of topics. He evaluates the indissolubility of marriage and emphasizes why it is imperative that we restore a culture of life.

  • Everybody Fights : So Why Not Get Better At It

    $18.99

    Learn how to fight better and end your arguments with your partner feeling closer, more loved, and better understood.

    We take our cars in for oil changes. We mow our lawns and pull weeds. Why don’t we do maintenance on our marriages? This relationship is the most important one we will ever have, so why not get better at it?

    For the last several years, Penn and Kim Holderness of The Holderness Family have done the hard maintenance and the research to learn how to fight better. With the help of their marriage coach Dr. Christopher Edmonston, they break down their biggest (and in some cases, funniest) fights. How did a question about chicken wings turn into a bra fight (no, not a bar fight or a bra fight)? How did a roll of toilet paper lead to tears, resentment, and a stint in the guest bedroom?

    With their trademark sense of humor and complete vulnerability, Penn and Kim share their 10 most common Fight Fails and how to combat them. Throughout the book, they offer scripts for how to start, continue, and successfully close hard conversations. Couples will emerge equipped to engage and understand, not do battle–and maybe laugh a little more along the way.

    In Everybody Fights, couples will learn how to:

    *Use magic words for healthy conflict resolution
    *Address unspoken and unrealistic expectations
    *Banish the three Ds of unhealthy communication–distraction, denial, and delay
    *Carry individual baggage while helping your partner deal with theirs

    Penn and Kim want you to know you’re not alone. Everybody fights. Marriage is messy. Marriage is work. But marriage is worth it. Fight for it!

  • Hollowed Out : A Warning About America’s Next Generation

    $16.99

    Do teachers have a front-row seat to America’s decline?

    Jeremy S. Adams, a teacher at both the high school and college levels, thinks so.

    Adams has spent decades trying to instill wisdom, ambition, and a love of learning in his students. And yet, as he notes, when teachers get together, they often share an arresting conclusion: Something has gone terribly wrong. Something essential is missing in our young people.

    Their curiosity seems stunted, their reason undeveloped, their values uninformed, their knowledge lacking, and, most worrying of all, their humanity diminished.

    Digital hermits of a sort unfamiliar to an older generation, they have little interest in marriage and family. They largely dismiss – and are shockingly ignorant of – religion. They sneer at patriotism, sympathize with riots and vandalism, and regard American society and civilization as so radically flawed that it must be dismantled. Often friendless and depressed, they eat alone, study alone, and even “socialize” alone.

    Educators like Adams see a generation slipping away. The problems that have hollowed out our young people have been festering for years. A year of COVID-19 lockdowns and social distancing have magnified them. The result could be a generation – and our nation’s future – lost in a miasma of alienation and stupefaction.

    In his stunning new book, Hollowed Out, Jeremy S. Adams reveals why students have rejected the wisdom, culture, and institutions of Western civilization – and what we can do to win them back. Poignant, frightening, and yet inspiring, this is a book for every parent, teacher, and patriot concerned for our young people and our country.

  • Raising Resilient Kids

    $14.99

    Children need to believe their future is bright. The more disappointments they don’t recover well from, the less likely they are to dream. When they do not process challenging experiences well it can lead to defeat, rather than encourage them to grow and mature. Far too many children don’t grasp their strengths and, as a result do not believe they can overcome negative encounters. Apathy sets in. Discouragement persists. Arguments rage. Mental health suffers. Children need to be resilient and when they develop this ability and make wise choices it becomes part of their character. Furthermore, they need parents who help them to learn from negative experiences and who allow them a certain measure of struggle. In Raising Resilient Kids moms and dads will learn the power and purpose of resilience and how to parent so as to make it more likely their children will utilize this character quality.

    Family life is often very busy! There are so many things competing for time and attention. Kids are also influenced by many different things. How can we make sure that we are making the most of our time with our children to lead them spiritually? And what is the best approach?

    This practical guide gives parents a systematic approach to discipleship that goes beyond rote memorization.

    Write It On Their Hearts features:
    * a model of discipleship developed by Replicate Ministries that is based on Jesus’ encounters with his disciples
    * a discipleship plan that you can tailor to each child

  • Everyday Prayers For The School Year

    $12.99

    Moms know all too well that God doesn’t promise an easy road for us–or our kids. As much as we’d love to protect them from heartaches, it just isn’t possible. This is especially true during the school year, when they are introduced to new teachers, new classmates, new concepts, and maybe even a new school that seems big and frightening.

    Jesus tells us, “In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world” (John 16:33). With this reassurance, we try to reassure our children that no matter what, God is there and He’s on their side.

    And we pray.

    In Everyday Prayers for the School Year, author Tara L. Cole offers devotional readings and opportunities for mothers to pray for many issues concerning their children, such as:

    *Are they making godly friends?
    *Are their teachers kind and caring?
    *Can they make wise choices in bad situations?
    *Will they commit to studying?
    *Are they being targeted by bullies?
    *If they are unprepared for a test, will they trust God or cheat?

    No matter what our kids are facing during the school year, we can’t go wrong when we pray and teach them to pray too.

    Our prayer is that they ultimately trust Him for their salvation, but even after they become Christians, they have the daily choice to trust God when they feel like they are standing alone and the circumstances look impossible.

    Tara says, “My hope for this journal is that it will help moms turn their worry about their children’s school year into hope, that they take their concerns to God and walk away confident that He loves our kids more than we do. And He is in control.”

  • Be Still And Be Blessed 365 Daily Devotions

    $19.99

    There are moments in motherhood where life feels like one endless task. Where nothing seems to get done even though you’ve been working at it (what was “it” again?) all day. The dishes, the diapers, the homework assignments, the grocery shopping, the sporting events, the music lessons–and those all have to happen before five. Then it’s time for the evening cycle. Dinner, laundry, baths, story time, and the age-old, half-hour “but I don’t want to go to bed” drama. It’s enough to exhaust the most energetic person on earth. And tomorrow you get to do it all again.

    Finding time to be still in the chaos of motherhood is no simple task. Yet, when we do make time to quiet ourselves before God, something powerful happens. He gives us supernatural rest. He floods our minds with peace. He restores our joy. And he whispers to the deepest part of our hearts that it all matters. That we matter.

    As you reflect on the devotions, Scriptures, and prayers, be reminded that God sees every effort you make, and he is deeply pleased with your sacrifice. Sit quietly with him and let his love flow into every part of you. He has called you, and he will equip you with everything you need. Be still and be blessed.

  • What If Love Is The Point

    $26.99

    Popular actors Carlos and Alexa PenaVega share their inspiring stories of transformation, from feeling lost and searching for meaning to realizing that living for Jesus and loving others is what life is all about.

    Despite the opportunities they gained from their successful acting roles–Carlos on Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush, Alexa in the Spy Kids movies–the popular actors also faced many difficult challenges. Carlos was struggling with the influences of Hollywood and was reeling from a broken relationship. Alexa was healing from a divorce and an eating disorder she kept hidden. They felt lost and wondered, what’s the point of it all?

    After a mutual friend separately invited them to a Bible study, Carlos and Alexa began to see God’s answers to that question. Now, seven years of marriage and three children later, they have built a thriving relationship and a family centered on Jesus.

    What If Love Is the Point? is their shared testimony about the true joy they’ve experienced and the insights that have changed their lives, showing how:

    *putting God at the center has helped them in their marriage, their parenting, and even their career choices;

    *giving to others, instead of focusing on themselves, brought real fulfillment; and

    *surrendering themselves to Christ helped them find each other–and in the process, discover who they really were.

    In their own words, Carlos and Alexa say, We want to talk about it all. We want to write about all the junk, the ‘norms’ in society that aren’t good for us, how to navigate friendships, what it’s like becoming a parent, and how we learned to draw healthy boundaries at work. But we mainly want to ask, ‘What’s the point? What’s the point of all of this living?’ Carlos and Alexa are eager to share the truth they’ve uncovered: the more we surrender to God, the more we become who we really are.

  • Christian Parenting : Wisdom And Perspectives From American History

    $26.99

    What can the past teach us about what it means to be a “good” Christian parent today?

    Today’s parenting guidance can sometimes feel timeless and inviolable-especially when it comes to the spiritual formation of children in Christian households. But even in the recent past, parenting philosophies have differed widely among Christians in ways that reflect the contexts from which they emerged.

    In this illuminating historical study, David Setran catalogs the varying ways American Protestants envisioned the task of childrearing in the seventeenth, eighteenth, and nineteenth centuries. Comparing two main historical time periods-the colonial era and the Victorian era-Setran uncovers common threads, opposing viewpoints, and the cultural and religious influences behind the dominant parenting “postures” of each era. The implications of his findings matter for today’s big questions about parenting:

    *Should children be viewed as basically good, in need of protection from corruption, or as fundamentally sinful, in need of moral correction?

    *How should parents address misbehavior?
    Should a parent’s primary role be that of teacher, disciplinarian, or nurturer?

    *What importance should be attributed to devotions and prayer, church involvement, Sabbath-keeping, home decorating, and fun family activities?

    *What consideration should be given to gender? Should boys and girls be raised differently? Do mothers and fathers have essentially different responsibilities?

    As he surveys these historical perspectives, Setran reflects on the legacy and future of Christian parenting, concluding that the Protestant heritage encourages the importance of intentional devotional practices, the development of close parent-child bonds, and the creation of godly household environments. In the end, he argues that all of these historical values are critical to the full expression of Christian parental love. This is a love that teaches because it wants to help children understand true goodness; that admonishes and restrains because it wants to protect children from whatever keeps them from true pleasure and joy; that fosters strong relationships so children might experience the lavishness of God’s love; that models Christlike sacrifice and guides children into the arms of their Creator.

  • Gospel Shaped Marriage

    A Gracious, Biblical Model for Marriage

    Married Christians, and those preparing for marriage, know that they’re sinners–and that their sin threatens God’s great purposes for their union, including mutual support, companionship, and intimacy.

  • Weve Been There

    $18.99

    Candid, unfiltered stories about how it feels to be a teen adoptee

    The teen years are full of uncomfortable self-discovery for everyone. But adopted teens grapple with issues that make the coming of age journey immensely more difficult. Many don’t have words for what they’re feeling, sensing, or believing about themselves. They often don’t have anyone like them to help them work through their struggles. Forced to cope on their own, they end up feeling isolated.

    Adoption advocate and adoptive mom Susan TeBos has watched her own children go through these struggles. Often she wished for a voice that would resonate with adopted teens–her own and others–and authentically meet them where they are.

    She found not one voice, but many: over thirty adopted teens and young adults. We’ve Been There gathers their stories, giving readers a front row seat to people with similar stories and feelings.

    This book is an unprecedented glimpse into the unfiltered feelings, thoughts, experiences, and unanswered questions that well up in the heart of every person with adoption in their story. From people who have been there as adopted kids, this book not only invites adopted teens to bring their concerns into the open, but also helps them process how they feel and offers them hope on the other side. In these pages, teen adoptees will understand themselves in a whole new way and find reassurance and a sense of belonging as part of a global adopted community.

  • God Sex And Your Marriage

    $15.99

    Many Christian books talk about sexual issues within broader works on marriage, but few resources comprehensively and biblically guide couples specifically on sexual intimacy. God, Sex, and Your Marriage challenges the common assumptions couples have about sexuality and presents the richer biblical narrative of sex as a metaphor of God’s covenant love. Dr. Juli Slattery applies that biblical framework to the practical challenges in sexual intimacy. Godly sexuality extends far beyond sexual purity and calls us to sexual integrity. God invites every couple to view their sexual relationship, including their greatest struggles, as an avenue to learn about the nature of His covenant love. It’s God desire to make us more like Himself and sex within marriage is often a powerful training ground for godly character. That desire gives purpose and context to addressing pornography, healing from past wounds, sexual incompatibility, pursuing pleasure together, and forgiveness.

    Popular standup comedian and podcaster Dustin Nickerson delivers a hilarious and practical take on navigating marriage based on his everyday experiences as a husband, father, and an Average Joe who is still trying to figure it all out.

    Tired of the formulaic, one-size-fits-all books that reduce relationships to math equations, Dustin Nickerson decided to draw from his sixteen-year-marriage to his wife, Melissa, for insights into keeping relationships in a good spot. In How to Be Married (to Melissa), he shares that the key to his marriage’s success is laughter and offers a few lessons he learned (and didn’t learn), including:

    *our footprints in the sand are on different beaches;
    *identifying tripwires prevents accidental explosions during dinner;
    *contrary to popular belief, conceding is sweeter if it comes with a heartfelt apology; and
    *the baby is two days old–is it time to schedule the vasectomy?

    Filled with storytelling, personal anecdotes, and honest disclosures, Nickerson brings his popular and highly relatable brand of humor to topics ranging from parenting and finances to church attendance and in-laws, showing readers how to break up the monotony and break open the vulnerability as they celebrate their own one-of-a-kind marriages.

  • Get The Girl

    $15.95

    “The ‘manosphere’ online is filled with a certain kind of red-pilled bitterness which, when it is coupled with evolutionary and materialistic assumptions, produces an odd mix of appalling selfishness and cynicism (and reductionism with regard to sex) coupled with common grace insights that you would never hear from an evangelical beta-preacher.” ~ from the book

    Douglas Wilson writes to a young man on how he should pursue a woman. Feminism has catechized us in many lies about what makes the sexes attracted to each other, and evangelical pastors have often only reinforced those lies with platitudes about servant-leadership (heavy on the servant, light on the leadership). When they find out that being a doormat doesn’t attract anyone, young men often rebound to the secular manosphere. Douglas Wilson offers his own commonsense advice, sharp-edged and thoroughly biblical, not just on how to be the kind of man who attracts the right woman, but how to be the kind of man that keeps her.

  • Why Marriage Counseling Fails

    $15.99

    Like life itself, marriage has moments of joy…and sorrow. As difficult as marriage can be, many who have said “I do” try to stick it out when problems arise because the alternative–being alone–is not very appealing. If the couple truly wants to save their marriage, they usually turn to counseling.

    Unfortunately, most marriage counseling ends with the couple dropping out and then, more often than not, ending their relationship. In some cases, the problem is not the couple but their choice of counselor. One who is poorly trained, disinterested, or obviously biased can destroy a marriage.

    Why Marriage Counseling Fails explores different scenarios that cause problems for couples as well as the different types of counselors who can help or harm a marriage. Dr. David B. Hawkins has more than forty-five years of experience as a marriage counselor and has helped thousands of couples save their marriages.

    “Sadly, when it comes to reaching out for help for marriage counseling, few have a sense of trust and confidence in their counselor,” he says. “Stories abound about how they came out of a counseling session worse than when they went in.”

    Dr. Hawkins defines the “five I’s” of a qualified marriage counselor as one who:

    *Offers wise instruction
    *Takes an active interest in the couple
    *Offers insight into why problems recur
    *Is willing to work intensively
    *Works in-depth to help the couple find long-term solutions

    Why Marriage Counseling Fails offers insights into marital issues, the brokenness of the counseling system, how to find good help, and how to insist upon effective help when turning to a counselor.

  • Legacy Letters : The Prompted Journal For Those Who Inspire Us

    $19.99

    Ever found yourself wishing you had asked the deeper questions of life from someone you admired? Someone you held so much love for, but the time or opportunity ran out? Have you often found yourself living out the legacy of that person, long after they departed the earth, trying to remember the stories, the principles by which they lived, because within their life was a depth of understanding that is nearby impossible to replicate? The Legacy Letters is a prompted journal, a volume that requires the receiver of the book to fill in the pages with their own wisdom. In an attempt to connect our personal sages to the youth of tomorrow, Carrie Lloyd wrote down the questions she asked her mother in a blank, leather-bound journal five years ago. Within the pages were stories she never knew of her family, adversities she could not have discovered just by living within the family home, and historical references that could have been missed had intentional questions not been asked. The Legacy Letters seeks to go deeper into the very motivations and makings of those who inspire us, and upon the pages being filled by the sages themselves, we have, through a vulnerable exposition of both the writer and the reader, the powerful findings of life itself, engraved into the page by their own ink. From childhood findings to the darkest hours of adversity, how did those who inspire us become so iconic to us? Whether they be a parent, a teacher, a mentor or a spiritual mentor, whoever they are to us, they hold up a baton of hope that we mustn’t miss in passing, but wait upon the starting line, ready to take our turn, carrying out their wisdom of yesteryear.
