  • 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.

  • Parenting For A Better World

  • 2nd Happy : Seven Practices To Make Your Marriage Better Than Your Honeymoo

    Whether you’ve been looking forward to it or dreading it, the experience of coming home to an empty nest brings with it a well of emotions, realizations, and one gigantic, all-consuming thought: Now what?

    *Change the relationship you once had with your children–for the better
    *Face big issues (like aging parents, finances, and kids returning home) with confidence
    *And rekindle your fire and purpose to live with passion day by day

    Loving our children’s children well is an art–one we keep learning as they grow.

    Making memories and fostering relationships with our grandchildren in the midst of a fast-moving culture isn’t easy, and a legacy that lasts isn’t crafted overnight. So how do we as grandparents cultivate strong, meaningful relationships with the children we adore?

  • No Crowns In The Castle

    $27.00

    Leave your crown at the door.

    Fantasia Taylor–American Idol, Grammy-winning vocalist, and chart-topping singer–and her husband businessman Kendall Taylor were both successful and living in their purpose when they met and married three weeks later. Their marriage has had its ups and downs, but the one thing that has sustained them through all of it is the practice of taking off their crowns–the accolades, their egos, the things the world tells you matter–and serving each other within the home. It doesn’t matter who you are in the world–you need to humble yourself and serve your partner in order to put your marriage, your family, and your faith first.

    Seven years later, after facing a host of real-world challenges–from marital stress to professional and financial pressures, to their high-risk pregnancy and the premature birth of their daughter–Fantasia and Kendall’s marriage has become a beacon of hope and love as they have opened up about their lives in their weekly ‘Taylor Talks’ broadcast. Now, in their first book together, Fantasia and Kendall dish about their shared experiences and struggles, opening up about the challenges and triumphs they’ve faced together and how they have come out stronger for them. They also share stories about how they’ve made their relationship work against all odds and why they try to always treat each other like royalty.

    In their trademark no-nonsense, real-talk style, they discuss topics that affect all relationships, including the importance of submitting to one another, handling conflict, clearing the lines of communication, keeping the romance alive, navigating the challenges of blended family, and how to maintain healthy relationships when you haven’t seen them modeled before.

    Insightful, wise, and grounded in faith, Fantasia and Kendall’s story offers hope and encouragement and gives straight-up advice about making your relationships last.

  • Stepmother : Redeeming A Distained Vocation

    $26.99

    Every year hundreds of thousands of American women become stepmothers. Committing to partners who are already parents, we gain relationships with young people who may–or may not–be pleased by our presence.

    When Dorothy Bass married a man with a four-year-old daughter, she was hesitant to embrace the title stepmother, with its many negative cultural associations, and she soon realized she had very little sense of what this new role required of her.

    In Stepmother, Bass explores the complex emotional, material, and spiritual terrain we share with our stepchildren, and with their other parents. Bringing together insights from sociology, history, clinical studies, and literature, she unpacks practical questions to help readers explore the deeper issues: What is my definition of home? How does this relationship affect all the other relationships in this family? And how do I deal with the emotional triangles of stepfamily life?

    Bass centers us on the work to be done in our own hearts, where spiritual strength can grow and love can be intentionally built, bringing peace and hope instead of scarcity and competition. By being honest about our own pain and the pain of others, we open ourselves to the love and mercy often born from unexpected relationships. It is here that we make way for constructive family dynamics.

  • Special Grace : Prayers And Reflections For Families With Special Needs

    $16.00

    The world of special needs is filled with statistics: in the United States, about 17 percent of children have a diagnosed developmental disability, and 14 percent of public school students receive special education services.

    But behind these statistics are stories–stories of children struggling to fit into a world that wasn’t designed for them, and stories of parents giving everything they have to advocate for their children. Most of these parents didn’t choose this path; they were thrust upon it unknowing, unprepared, and often overwhelmed. They may struggle to talk about their experiences in relatable ways with family, friends, and even God. Special Grace is a collection of 127 prayers for all aspects of life for families with special needs. Here are prayers for family life, school, and church; prayers for an initial diagnosis, for the first day of school, and for celebrating a milestone. Each section is set off by a reflective essay from Evans’s own family life. Filled with humor and wisdom, these prayers and reflections will help families process their experiences together and offer them to God with hope and simple trust. In moments when the cries of your heart leave you speechless, Special Grace provides words you can bring before your Father in heaven.

  • Humble Moms : How The Work Of Christ Sustains The Work Of Motherhood

    $22.99

    What does a weary mom need? What will help her not only keep going in her life and work of motherhood, but enjoy it?

    While being a mom is one of the most rewarding jobs, it is also one of the hardest. For all its joys, motherhood can leave us weary as we pour ourselves out for our children and wonder where we’ll get the strength to serve another day. If we’re honest, we can become exhausted by the constant call to tend to our family. We can even sometimes resent the posture of servanthood it requires. We may get the actions of motherhood right, but many times, our hearts are off.

    As mom and author Kristen Wetherell experienced these things first-hand in the work of mothering, she wondered, “How do I go about the weighty and wonderful calling of motherhood not simply as a servant, but with a servant’s heart–a humble heart?”

    Instead of offering a parenting plan or a pep talk or a list of things you need to do to be a better mom, Humble Moms offers you exactly what Kristen needed in seasons of struggle: biblical meditations on Jesus, who reveals to us what servant-heartedness looks like as the walking and talking embodiment of humility. As you journey along with Kristen through the book of John, soaking in the entire life and work of Christ (his incarnation, life, ministry, death, resurrection, ascension, and return), you’ll find that your life and work as a mom is sustained in the process.

    In our exhaustion as moms, Kristen points us to the true Sustainer of our souls, the loving Servant who has tended to us in both hand and heart, and the only One powerful enough to grow us into women who reflect his humility in our daily work of motherhood.

  • It Takes More Than Love

    $14.99

    Embrace the beauty and challenges of transracial adoption.

    Being an adoptive parent is hard enough. But when your family is multiracial, things get even trickier. Parenting transracially doesn’t come naturally, nor does it just happen with time. Love is essential–yet by itself, love isn’t enough. Cross-cultural parenting also takes intentionality, listening, learning, growing, repenting, changing . . . then starting all over and doing it again. It’s hard work! And yet, when an adoptive family honors the ethnic heritages of their children, the whole family–as well as the watching world–gets to see the beauty of a gloriously creative God.

    In It Takes More Than Love, Brittany Salmon shares her own family’s story of transracial adoption and offers a biblically-based guide for others following the same path. Brittany recognizes that we live in divided times and there are extra challenges whenever race is part of the conversation. But with wise insight and hard-won experience, she provides guidance about topics such as:

    *Maintaining a Gospel perspective throughout the journey
    *Celebrating your child’s history and heritage
    *Confronting racism
    *Responding to comments about your family
    *Avoiding pitfalls in adoption
    *Helping your kids feel represented in your home and community

    No one is promising transracial adoption will be easy–least of all Brittany! Yet the extra effort is balanced by a beauty that images our eternal destiny. Until the day God makes all things new, the welcoming an inclusive transracial family can help fulfill Jesus’s words, “on earth as it is in heaven.”

  • 1st Class Fatherhood

    $27.99

    Did you know that in the United States alone, more than one in four children live in a home without a father?

    When Alec Lace recognized this crisis and launched his parenting podcast 2018, his mission was simple: to give dads an opportunity to encourage others, by sharing the experiences and wisdom they’ve gained during their respective journeys.

    A few years and hundreds of interviews later–including with many high-profile dads from sports, media, politics, the military, and other industries–Alec has curated a rich collection of anecdotes that provides guidance and inspiration on a wide array of topics, including but not limited to:

    *Advice for about-to-be or new dads
    *Finance and education
    *Discipline
    *Dating and social life
    *Faith, values, and service
    *Fitness and health, for both children and fathers
    *How to be a fatherhood ambassador

    First-Class Fatherhood will engage the reader with thought-provoking ideas and realistic solutions from fathers who have been through it all.

    Alec believes that being a father is the most important role a man can play in the game of life. And his hope is that this book will help change the narrative of fatherhood and family life, and greatly reduce the number of children growing up without a father in the home.

  • More Than A Mom

    $18.99

    What if taking care of yourself was the first step to helping your family thrive?

    If you’ve parented long enough, then you’ve learned firsthand why your personal wellness matters. You’ve felt the pain (or consequences) of devaluing yourself. Whether your wake-up call came from a diagnosis, a breakdown, an issue with your child or spouse, anxiety, or simply feeling depleted and numb, it most likely unveiled this truth:

    Mothers are humans too. We require love, compassion, rest, and renewal. Taking care of our needs strengthens us and equips us for the road ahead.

    In More Than a Mom, bestselling author Kari Kampakis offers a practical, approachable, and attainable framework to stay on a healthy path. You can take your kids only as far as you’ve come-and since their strength builds on your strength, you must take time to focus on you. More Than a Mom is about unleashing God’s power in your life and standing on timeless truths that will help you:

    *know your worth and embrace your purpose,
    *build strong, uplifting friendships that you can model for your children,
    *quit the negative self-talk and make peace with your body, and
    *learn to mother yourself by resting and setting boundaries.

    The world shaping your children is more callous and complex than the world that shaped you. Kids need to be stronger, smarter, and more rooted in what’s real. Empower your son or daughter by tending to your heart, soul, body, and mind. Give them a vision of a healthy adult-and know that as they launch into the real world, they will build on what you started.

  • When Love Wasnt Enough

    $14.99

    Not all stories are meant to have a fairy tale ending.

    Many of us have experienced relationships that have ended with only the scars that remain to show where we have been. What happens when the love of your life turns out to be a fraud? You can lose hope, and even question your faith. Why does God let His people suffer? Through our hardest experiences and struggles, we find that the road to becoming stronger is not paved in gold, but instead paved in God’s grace.

    When Love Wasn’t Enough will take you on a journey, from love at first sight to deception, heartache and the horrors of living with a narcissist. When you reach your breaking point, when you feel you have reached the point of no return, just look up. You will see that God has a purpose even in the midst of abuse and suffering. Begin a courageous journey from imprisonment to the freedom God wants for all of us.

    Sometimes life gives you lemons, but through God’s love, you can use your own story to create lemonade that you can share to change the world.

  • Domestic Monastery : Creating A Spiritual Life At Home

    $10.99

    What is a monastery? A monastery is a place set apart–a place to learn the blessings of powerlessness, and that time is not ours but God’s. Our home and our duties can, just like a monastery, teach us those things. The vocation of monastic men and women is to physically withdraw from the world. But the principle is equally valid for those of us who cannot go off to monasteries. Certain vocations offer the same kind of opportunity for contemplation, and provide a desert for reflection.

    In ten brief and powerful chapters, Fr. Ron explores how monastery life can apply to those who don’t live in a cloister:

    – Monasticism and Family Life
    – The Domestic Monastery
    – Real Friendship
    – Lessons from the Monastic Cell
    – Ritual for Sustaining Prayer
    – Tensions within Spirituality
    – A Spirituality of Parenting
    – Spirituality and the Seasons of Our Lives
    – The Sacredness of Time
    – Life’s Key Question

  • Choosing Us : Marriage And Mutual Flourishing In A World Of Difference

    $21.99

    For years, others have asked Gail Song Bantum and Brian Bantum to reveal the secret to their marriage as a multiracial Christian couple with high-profile ministry callings. This book reveals the lessons, mistakes, and principles that have helped the Bantums navigate race, family history, and gender dynamics in their twenty-plus years of marriage, while inspiring readers to pursue mutual flourishing in their marriages and relationships.

    Marriage is about more than constant bliss or unending sacrifice, say the Bantums. It’s about exploring your own story, seeing the other for who they are (even as they change), and being flexible and creative in discovering how those differences and stories come alive in new ways when joined together. It’s the discovery of life in the gaps and the mysteries that emerge when we live in mutuality, believing that fullness is possible for each.

    Choosing Us reflects the realities and demands of modern marriage and respects the callings and ambitions of both partners. It shows that marriage is about choosing the other’s flourishing on a daily basis, amid differences and even systemic obstacles, to build a relationship that thrives and reflects the kingdom of God.

  • Dear Son : Raising Faithful, Just, And Compassionate Men

    $15.99

    What does it mean to be a faith-filled dad to a son? There are no shortage of media stereotypes, masculine caricatures, and talk-show opinions, but do they offer any helpful or practical advice for father’s today?

    Dear Son: Raising Faithful, Just, and Compassionate Men is a candid examination of fatherhood’s joys and difficulties. Framed in a series of letters from two dads to their still-young sons, this book offers alternative perspectives on what faithful fatherhood looks like today. Instead of reinforcing sexist social dynamics and machismo attitudes, authors Hall and Underwood articulate and defend an understanding of masculinity that presents a father as a servant of God, a man of emotion, and someone striving to raise sons committed to fixing the injustices of the world rather than perpetuating them.

    Dear Son is a call to action for other fathers to deeply reflect–especially in light of their Christian faith–on what it means to have someone look at them and say, Dad… and to be able to respond with their whole heart.

  • Like Our Father

    $14.99

    Reveal God to your children by parenting them like He parents us.

    Tired of all the parenting books full of strategic checklists, how-to advice, and quick tips? If so, this book is for you. Instead of focusing on parenting techniques, it’s about who God is, who we are in light of that, and how God’s character gives form and shape to our parenting.

    Christina Fox wants you to explore the Scriptures with her and discover the goodness of the God who makes us His own. As God’s beloved creatures, we bear His image–that is, we show others who He is as we glorify Him. Is anything more important to pass on to our children than this? In Like Our Father, you’ll learn to parent in light of the timeless and profound truths that God:

    *Is our adoptive Father
    *Is consistent
    *Provides boundaries
    *Teaches and trains us
    *Disciplines us
    *Gives us what we need
    *Responds patiently
    *Loves us unconditionally

    Though it’s tempting to want a step-by-step instructional manual on how to raise kids, what you really need is a clearer, grander, bolder vision of your Heavenly Father. When you’ve got His character before your eyes, you’ll live it out in front of your kids. And as they share in your magnified vision of God, they’ll begin to live as the image-bearers that He made them to be.

    Today we are facing a global crisis when it comes to families. Marriages are under more pressure than ever. Many children are growing up without experiencing the security of their parents’ love and commitment-and as a result are finding it harder to receive God’s unconditional love.

    *Communicate more effectively
    *Grow closer by learning methods to resolve conflicts
    *Recover from the way they may have hurt each other
    *Recognize how their upbringing has affected their relationship
    *Improve relationships with parents and in-laws

    The Marriage Book is based on a Christian understanding of love and serves to strengthen marriages within the church while, at the same time, being accessible for all couples from any cultural background. Full of practical advice, it will help couples prepare, build, and even mend their marriages.

  • Translating Your Past

    $29.99

    Uncover the spiritual strength of your family story.

    We all have a desire to learn more about where we’ve come from, and technology has made this more possible than ever. But our family stories are more than a list of DNA results on a piece of paper or a bunch of fading Kodachrome images filling old photo albums.

    In an era often marked by both fragmentation in family and culture and a hunger to discover our genetic roots, our family stories–including the difficult, complex ones–can carry great spiritual strength. The desire to trace, interpret, and pass on our family’s history is embedded in Scripture from beginning to end–there are nine genealogies found in the book of Genesis alone. When we bring together the various threads of our family stories with Scripture’s insights, they can provide the key to decoding our identity and helping us discover our place in family, church, and world.

    In Translating Your Past, author Michelle Van Loon helps readers uncover how patterns and gaps in family histories, generational trauma, adoption, genetic clues and surprises, spiritual history, and the church help us translate our own pasts and understand why these stories matter. Each chapter includes questions designed for individual reflection or small group discussion, as well as an appendix of helpful tools readers can use to translate their own pasts and create meaning in order to transform their unique family history into living, faith-filled heritage.

  • When Grandparents Become Parents

    $16.99

    There’s a quiet epidemic in our culture: The fastest-growing type of family unit is grandparents charged with the task of raising their children’s children.

    Though there are myriad reasons for this–the death of one’s adult child, parental drug addiction, abusive living situations, or incarceration, to name a few–the effects tend to be the same: Senior citizens who expected to spend their golden years relaxing or traveling are now seeing their dreams dashed. Those on limited incomes are feeling the strain and are frightened about their futures. And the mental, spiritual, and physical exhaustion of parenting and disciplining children many decades their junior, exacerbated by a technology gap, is overwhelmingly real.

    And yet, through their sacrificial service, these seniors are acting as kinsman-redeemers for their grandchildren–keeping them out of the foster care system and giving them the best shot possible for a successful life.

    In When Grandparents Become Parents, experienced author Rick Johnson details both the challenges and solutions these heroic seniors face, offering strategies and resources (including real advice from other grandparents) to deal with major areas of stress–incorporating humor, common sense, and practical advice along the way.

  • Lifetime Of Love

    $13.95

    If you ask legendary football coach Lou Holtz about his greatest accomplishment, he doesn’t talk about winning a national championship at the University of Notre Dame. Instead, he’s most proud of his fifty-nine-year marriage to Beth and raising their four successful children together.

    In A Lifetime of Love, Holtz offers couples young and old practical advice on marriage and parenting gleaned from his fifty-nine year marriage. He shares stories from he and Beth’s life away from the football field that reveal the couple’s deep faith in God and commitment to each other and their children.

    The Holtzes faced many challenges throughout their marriage: Lou’s coaching jobs meant he was often away from home and caused their family to move multiple times.

    *Find ways to connect daily.

    *Be intentional about time together.

  • It Starts With You

    $17.99

    As parents, we want to shape our children into emotionally mature and healthy human beings. But we cannot effectively shape our children’s emotional well-being until we’ve addressed our own traumas and emotional needs.

    In It Starts with You, marriage and family therapist and parent coach Nicole Schwarz offers a nonjudgmental, shame-free guide to parenting children with a calm confidence. Working from a place of grace and compassion, she encourages us to explore how our history, thoughts, and assumptions impact our parenting decisions. Moving away from traditional discipline strategies, Schwarz focuses on the importance of having a calm brain, connected relationships, respectful conversations, and a coaching mindset with our kids.

    It Starts with You lays out a five-step process you can turn to whenever you’re stuck in a difficult parenting situation. Each step is grounded in research and presented in a way that is easy to understand. Rather than adding unnecessary pressure, we learn that kids do not need perfect parents, but parents who are willing to learn, grow, and move forward with them in a positive direction.

  • Say All The Unspoken Things

    $18.99

    Say All the Unspoken Things encourages us to unlock our hearts and love more deeply, more intentionally, and more immediately so our relationships flourish and we experience all God intended in our families and friendships.

    Our children, spouses, parents, and friends may know we love them, but shouldn’t they hear it from us regularly and feel it profoundly? For some reason, many of us rarely share our hearts or speak those deep, hidden sentiments. Or we hold on to them for a day yet to come. John Sowers encourages us all to release the stranded and exiled words we have in our hearts-those unspoken things-so there are no doubts in our relationships nor regrets in our lives.

    Written in the form of personal, heartfelt messages from a father to his daughters, these love letters will echo in the heart of readers, reminding them that ultimately their Father in heaven loves them and is for them. This, combined with wisdom for life, will make this book a treasure for parents and grown children alike.

  • Fight For Us

    $25.99

    Fight for Us takes couples on an inspiring journey into the challenges of battling for their marriage, through gut-wrenching times of despair, and then finally to the victory of a renewed relationship grounded in Jesus.

    Fight for Us delivers a compelling marriage challenge of “five rounds” that teach readers how to develop the never-give-up, never-quit mentality every relationship needs in order to combat the enemy’s constant attacks.

    Utilizing narrative elements from the real-life story of Chad and Kathy Robichaux, readers will learn how Chad’s deployments to Afghanistan as a Marine–and subsequent career as an MMA fighter–allowed him to disengage from his emotions, his marriage, and his children. Then, when his crippling PTSD brought him to brink of suicide, Kathy’s pastor taught him the “five rounds” of fighting that are necessary in the battle for any marriage:

    1. Believe that God loves you and has a purpose for your life.
    2. Take responsibility for your actions.
    3. Accept that you can’t change the evils that you’ve encountered.
    4. Access God’s power.
    5. Put yourself second.

    At the end of the rounds, readers will discover God’s design for marriage, which saved Chad and Kathy’s relationship. Today, they aim to pay it forward and share what they’ve learned with other couples. Fight for Us features application sections, discussion prompts, affirmations, and Bible verses, all designed to help readers apply the book’s key marriage principles.

  • Fierce Love : Creating A Love That Lasts – One Conversation At A Time

    $26.99

    New York Times bestselling author Susan Scott guides couples through eight must-have conversations to create a fierce love that stands the test of time and grows stronger over the years.

    Often in our romantic relationships, we long for deep connection, but we don’t know how to communicate well and sometimes withhold what we’re really thinking and feeling. This can lead to fighting, resentment, or, worse, complacency–where you are just going through the motions, more like roommates than two people in love. As Susan writes, “It’s as if we’ve pulled off our own wings.” As couples, we don’t stop to think how important our conversations are. And we certainly don’t understand that what we talk about and how we talk about it determine whether our relationships will thrive, flatline, or fail.

    In Fierce Love, New York Times bestselling author Susan Scott guides couples through eight must-have conversations that lead to deep connection and lasting commitment. Through the use of true stories and hands-on exercises, Susan helps us:
    *understand that the conversation is the relationship;
    *identify and dispel five relationship myths that mislead and derail us;
    *learn eight conversations that are critical to enriching relationships; and
    *stop fighting or ignoring issues and start connecting in a deep and meaningful way.

    After a season where many relationships were tested and tried, where some relationships thrived and others have exposed cracks couples didn’t even realize were there, or realized but didn’t acknowledge, now is the best time to learn to communicate well. By having honest, compelling conversations with our partners, we can foster true connection and a fierce love that will withstand the test of time and grow stronger over the years.

  • Love Is : How Messy Stories Can Meet In The Heart Of God

    $18.99

    Retitled, repackaged, and including new content, Love Is delivers a compelling message that urges Christians to reject the distorted views of love that have damaged our hearts, minds, and souls and to embrace God’s biblical definition of what love truly is.

    So many young people enter adulthood with expectations of blissful dating followed by a romantic marriage but then discover they’ve been duped. Because they learned about love and sexuality from faulty sources-social media, their friends, Disney fairy tales, pornography, or even their own rocky past-they have no idea what healthy, lifelong love is supposed to be like. The results are often disastrous, with this generation becoming one of the most relationally sick, sexually addicted, and divorce ridden in history.

    Looking to God’s design while drawing lessons from their own successes and failures, the Bethkes explode the fictions and falsehoods that have led to broken relationships. One by one, they peel back lies that include:
    *the belief that every person has only one soul mate,
    *that marriage will complete you,
    *and that pornography and hook-ups are harmless.

    Drawing from Jeff’s “prodigal son” personal history and from Alyssa’s “True Love Waits” experience, the Bethkes blend personal storytelling with biblical teaching to offer readers an inspiring, realistic vision of love, dating, marriage, and sex. Including a new chapter filling readers in on the Bethke’s married relationship today, this updated edition offers a solidly biblical view of romantic love.

  • Courageously Expecting : 30 Days Of Encouragement For Pregnancy After Loss

    $18.99

    Using Scripture and personal narrative, Courageously Expecting empathizes with and empowers women to face a pregnancy after loss with faith and courage, despite inevitable feelings of grief and fear that accompany life after losing a baby.

    Pregnancy is widely regarded as the most joyful time in a woman’s life, but for the mother who has experienced pregnancy loss, a subsequent pregnancy can feel like she’s holding her breath and hoping for what she can’t control. In Courageously Expecting, Jenny Albers meets women in this difficult season as someone who has also experienced the worst and cautiously hoped for the best. Through the telling of her own story, Scripture, and heartfelt prayer, she encourages readers to cling to faith in the face of fear and guides them to:
    *cultivate hope when doubt weighs heavy;

    *realize that the past does not dictate the present or the future and that God creates a way in the wilderness of grief and loss;

    *flip the script on the what-if, worst-case-scenario narrative in their minds and learn to take their thoughts captive; and

    *find the courage to humble themselves and ask for and accept help from others.

    Regardless of where readers are on their pregnancy after loss journey, Courageously Expecting is a companion to help them through the days when fear overshadows hope.

  • Enough Is Enough

    $12.99

    You need to get to safety. Now.

    When the abuse starts, that’s when you know enough is enough. It’s time to find a haven somewhere else. There will be a chance down the road to assess where your marriage is headed in the long term. No one is saying divorce is the inevitable outcome. God can transform anyone.

    But He doesn’t promise to do that. People choose to persist in sin. And that’s why it’s imperative for you to leave . . . so you can think clearly, take stock of the situation, and most of all, protect yourself and those whom you love.

    Dr. David Clarke, a licensed psychologist specializing in marital therapy for more than 30 years, wants to help you make the break from your abusive relationship. Whether or not divorce is on the horizon is beside the point. You need to get out so you can sort it out.

    Dr. Clarke understands this journey won’t be easy. That’s why he provides a step-by-step plan that includes practical advice as well as biblical guidance. But leave you must, because abuse is a sin that doesn’t come from above. Let this book help you get away from your abuser so you can give your marriage the best chance to succeed. Because only with some distance will you be able to see what your loving, ever-faithful God has in store for you.

  • Letters To The Sons Of Society

    $27.00

    The New York Times bestselling author of Writing My Wrongs invites men everywhere on a journey of honesty and healing through this book of moving letters to his sons–one whom he is raising and the other whose childhood took place during Senghor’s nineteen-year incarceration.

    Shaka Senghor has lived the life of two fathers. With his first son, Jay, born shortly after Senghor was incarcerated for second-degree murder, he experienced the regret of his own mistakes and the disconnection caused by a society that sees Black lives as disposable. With his second, Sekou, born after Senghor’s release, he has experienced healing, transformation, intimacy, and the possibilities of a world where men and boys can openly show one another affection, support, and love.

    In this collection of beautifully written letters to Jay and Sekou, Senghor traces his journey as a Black man in America and unpacks the toxic and misguided messages about masculinity, mental health, love, and success that boys learn from an early age. He issues a passionate call to all fathers and sons–fathers who don’t know how to show their sons love, sons who are navigating a fatherless world, boys who have been forced to grow up before their time–to cultivate positive relationships with other men, seek healing, tend to mental health, grow from pain, and rewrite the story that has been told about them.

    Letters to the Sons of Society is a soulful examination of the bond between father and sons, and a touchstone for anyone seeking a kinder, more just world.

  • Fruit Full : 100 Family Experiences For Growing In The Fruit Of The Spirit

    $19.99

    A fun family devotional inspiring children to understand the fruit of the Spirit

    It’s common for kids to memorize the fruits of the Spirit: love, joy, peace, goodness, self-control, and all the rest. But that doesn’t mean they understand what it means. Is peace just not fighting with your siblings? Does self-control mean resisting a second dessert? When Mom and Dad explain these concepts just in terms of morality, we miss the mark.

    Christie Thomas is skilled at taking complex ideas and making them accessible to kids . . . and adults learn a lot along the way too. Each of her devotions is designed to help parents connect their children with the Holy Spirit through a Scripture passage, thought-provoking questions, ways to apply each verse, and a prayer. And for each fruit, parents can use the optional hands-on activities when there’s extra time.

    Perfect for kicking off the New Year as a family, these 100 devotional experiences include illustrated examples of each fruit of the Spirit. They demonstrate the hands, heart, and habits of Jesus and also teach children to spend time with the good God who loves them. By understanding how he covers them with his goodness and how his Spirit helps them grow their own beautiful, Jesus-reflecting character, the whole family will connect to the Vine and grow abundant fruit together.

    Romance novels, Hallmark movies . . . the immense demand for romantic stories reveals a deep, unsatisfied longing that can be found in many marriages, but does it have to be that way?

    So what is the secret to a happy, thriving, loving marriage, where the fire of romance and close friendship do not fade? While The Flirtation Experiment includes the frisky side of marriage, it’s far more than a good romp.

    *be filled with hope and encouragement for how they can make a powerful, positive change in their marriages,

    *become empowered to pursue their husbands romantically,

    *be motivated to consistently love in creative ways, and

    *forge closeness and intimacy in their marriages.

It helps us discover true romance waiting for us in everyday situations.”

    Perfect for the wife who wants romance, passion, and the closeness that only comes from a deep heart connection but isn’t sure where to start, The Flirtation Experiment is a candid, real-life record of two Christian women from different seasons of life who discovered they could make a significant impact on their marriage relationships, one small flirtatious experiment at a time.

  • Marriage Manual For Former Homosexuals

    $15.95

    Sexuality in humans is an intended and basic element in creation. God made man and woman; God made sex. These basic tenets of biblical faith form the core of a theology of marriage. Marriage is the context of human sexuality, invented not by man but by God.

    By God’s Spirit, genuine conversion places each of us into Christ. Paul says we are a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:17); we are made new in Christ. All the problems have not been cleared up, but from God’s point of view, we are saints. A gay person who trusts Christ as Savior can break out of the homosexual label. It is not adopting a heterosexual label, but rather it is identifying with Christ.

    The kind of marriage relationship referred to here can only happen when two people freely choose to be committed to and involved with each other. It means making a decision to work out problems and overcome disagreements. It means growing together bit by bit, persevering in love when it appears separation is possible.

    We do not promote “conversion therapy,” and neither did the Love In Action ministry. In the 1970s, when few were proud to be gay, there were those who wanted out of that life. Despite the pride movement, there are still those who want out of the gay lifestyle, even some of those who marched in gay parades in San Francisco. For many, the gay life is not very gay at all.Few know the battle, the wrestling against powerful bodily forces plus the schemes of the devil, like those who seek to honor their Lord Jesus and turn from sexual sin. There are stories of people who have fallen away and gotten mired once again in homosexuality. Yet, there are the stories of many who turned their eyes upon Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit have resisted the wiles of their enemy, Satan. May this be so for those who examine this volume.

    Now, fifty-two years after writing the Marriage Manual for Former Homosexuals as a thesis for a DMin degree at San Francisco Theological Seminary (Presbyterian, USA), in San Anselmo, California, it has come time for its publication.

    Contains explicit sexual language.
