  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Signals is also useful for kids with special needs, including those with autism. Applying the technique can transform the relationships you have with your kids and set them on a lifelong trajectory of ever-increasing emotional intelligence.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Take Back Your Family

    $27.99

    New York Times bestselling author Jefferson Bethke delivers a powerful critique of the nuclear family ideal and calls for a sweeping new paradigm that brings not only longed-for stability but also radical blessings to the world.

    The West’s multi-century experiment with the nuclear family has failed. Its toxic hyper-individualism has left us with an unprecedented number of broken homes and rampant confusion over what a family is supposed to be. Jefferson Bethke delivers the solution we’ve been seeking: a plan for taking back our families from the modern myth that has derailed us and a vision for returning to the life-giving, biblical model of multi-generational teams.

    In Take Back Your Family, Bethke uncovers the historic events that led to our obsession with the nuclear family, then exposes the devastating effects of our current “me culture.” Now, writing from the visceral perspective of a father with three young children, he shares the values and strategies he and his family lean on in their quest to live as a community bonded by a shared mission, committed to mutually growing and thriving together. By returning to God’s original design for families on earth, he says, we can participate in the kingdom work that restores and fulfills our innermost desires for connection, contentment, and meaning.

  • So How Do I Parent This Child

    $15.99

    Parents don’t determine who their kids become. They steward them into who they’re meant to be.

    One of the most common myths in parenting books-you see it everywhere-is that parents are responsible for who their children turn out to be. Proper input yields proper output, or so the thinking goes. But that mindset works with machinery, not people. The truth is, your child has a unique set of traits-their giftedness-that only they possess. The parent’s job isn’t to crank out a product, but to point an individual human being toward a healthy, flourishing life.

    In So How Do I Parent This Child?, brother and sister duo Bill Hendricks and Bev Hendricks Godby team up to help you understand the difference between producing a product and parenting a person. They take you through all the stages of child rearing-from diapers to driver’s licenses to diplomas-to give you a comprehensive look at how identifying giftedness and helping your children discover it for themselves makes all the difference.

    As a parent, you’ve got a lot of challenges ahead. But with intentionality and an individualized approach, you’ll see your kids grow up to become the mature and confident adults that they’re intended to be.

  • 8 Great Smarts For Homeschoolers

    $12.99

    Kids don’t just learn one way . . . and that matters a lot for homeschool parents.

    One of the benefits of a home education is a curriculum designed to fit each student. But that means knowing how your child learns. Not every child receives knowledge the same way. It’s up to the teacher to figure out the best way to reach each one.

    Based on the 8 Smarts identified by Kathy Koch-word, logic, picture, music, body, nature, people, and self-8 Great Smarts for Homeschoolers tailors these ideas to the unique setting of the home classroom. Tina Hollenbeck, a leader in the home education community, applies the 8 Smarts to each division of a complete curriculum:

    *Math
    *Language Arts
    *Science
    *Social Studies
    *Religious Education
    *Fine Arts
    *Electives

    Yet when it comes down to it, the real benefit of homeschooling is personal relationships. Hollenbeck concludes by showing that when parents know their kids’ multiple intelligences-and when kids understand their family members in turn-it leads to a healthy homeschool dynamic. So don’t try to teach in the dark. Know your kid’s smarts, then watch them start engaging with their world in fresh ways.

  • Treading Boldly Through A Pornographic World

    $16.99

    Parents today are the first generation to raise kids in a digitally connected, porn-saturated world. Porn can be accessed in locker rooms, cafeterias, classrooms, and bedrooms–anywhere kids have access to digital devices. Worse yet, pornography that was once considered fringe has become increasingly mainstream. All this is misshaping children’s understanding of sexuality, stunting their capacity to process emotions, and crippling their ability to form long-term relationships.

    In Treading Boldly through a Pornographic World, Daniel Weiss and Joshua Glaser offer practical and spiritual guidance for parents seeking to help their teens navigate this pornographic digital landscape. Combining the latest research with personal and professional experience to guide families into the goodness for which God created us all, the authors skillfully outline the steps necessary for parents to move beyond merely surviving pornography’s challenges onto a rewarding path where their children can truly thrive.

  • All Things New

    $18.95

    It’s time to break the cycle.

    Not every family is the perfect model of Catholic family life. Some of us approach parenting still wounded by childhood experiences that were less than ideal. When we start our own families, at best we feel a bit unprepared, and at worst we feel paralyzed with fear that we will repeat our parents dysfunctional, abusive behaviors.

    In All Things New, Erin McCole Cupp draws on her own and others experiences to discuss how to develop a joyful family life when our own experience of being parented was damaging. Erin wrote this book for moms and dads who want to parent better than they themselves were parented.

    Drawing on the Holy Family as the model of family life, and distilling practical lessons from the Two Greatest Commandments and the Beatitudes, All Things New shows readers that, while change isn’t easy, God has given us all the ingredients we need to create a holy, joyful family.

    $15.95

    Believe it or not, the Catholic family isn’t primarily a human institution. It’s a divine one. By uniting with the sacramental life of the Church, your common, ordinary, crazy family becomes something sacred, a “domestic church.”

    Family therapist and parent Gregory Popcak and his wife, Lisa, are back with Parenting Your Kids with Grace. Building on their best-selling book Parenting with Grace, first published twenty years ago, this new volume draws on the same parenting principles and provides up-to-date research to guide parents through each stage of child development from birth to age ten.

    Practical, faithful, and humorous, Parenting Your Kids with Grace addresses four key questions:

    1. Are Catholic families called to be different from other families in the way we relate to one another in the home? If so, how?
    2. What does an authentic, family-based approach to Catholic spirituality look like in practice?
    3. What can the latest research tell us about creating a faithful home and raising faithful kids?
    4. How can Catholic families be outposts of evangelization and positive social change?

    By checking our basic assumptions about parenting against both the Church’s vision and what science can teach about living out that vision in healthy ways, we can discover God’s plan for parenting healthy, godly kids.

    $16.99

    When Dr. Robinson asked her freshman psychology students what today’s parents need to know about teens and sex, they said parents do not have a realistic view of the world their children live in.

  • Will They Stand

    $19.99

    Will your kids be equipped to face the giants?

    Our children are facing cultural “giants” that previous generations could never have imagined. Secularism, depravity, immorality, and apathy taunt Christians with a barrage of hate and intolerance. Will our children be equipped to stand strong against these giants, or will they be overcome? That is the question Christian parents are asking. In this book, Ken Ham gives us a powerful and up-to-date message about the importance of raising strong believers who can stand in the face of a world that will challenge, disparage, and seek to eliminate their faith. He also helps prepare parents to equip the next generation to thrive in the face of cultural adversity and emerge as tomorrow’s Christian leaders.

    Includes an exclusive interview with Mally Ham as she shares her story of the challenges met and sacrifices made to support their ministry and to raise a family of faith.

    “This is a very different book-certainly different from anything I’ve written so far. It is part journal, part tribute, part devotional, and part ‘how-to.’ It’s also all heart, an expression of a passion, conviction, and commitment to the Word of God, all of which was instilled in me by my parents. It’s very personal too, as I offer glimpses into my childhood, adult life, and a number of my life experiences. You will find these glimpses sometimes humorous, frustrating, or convicting, but as learning experiences for us all.”
    – Ken Ham (From the Introduction)

  • Need To Know For New Parents

    $14.99

    Useful Advice for Expecting Couples

    Expecting or adopting couples will appreciate this collection of practical and highly relevant wisdom and wit that will help them manage their expectations, experience grace, and laugh at themselves when things don’t go as planned.

    Author Jeff Atwood shares the real-life lessons he and his wife learned while raising their three daughters, the kind of guidance they wish someone would have given them before they had children.
    *New moms and dads will be better prepared for parenting with useful advice, including:
    *Tell your spouse “I love you” a lot during the day, because you might be too exhausted (or too stressed) to remember to say those words at 3 a.m.
    *The past is not an indicator of future performance. Just because your baby did something the same way for the past 30 days, does not mean they will do it the same way in the next 30 days.
    *Your kids need less stuff than you think they do. Nearly everything is disposable or has a very short lifespan.

    Need to Know for New Parents makes an ideal baby shower gift or a great book to read through with your spouse.
