“Family Worship” by Donald Whitney
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $7.99

Experiencing God at Home and this hands-on day by day family devotional take a fresh path back to the rich roots of Henry Blackaby’s world-renowned Experiencing God writings to connect what happens in our homes to what happens in our churches.

Indeed, a parents' task is to disciple their children, and the church's task is to equip parents for this work of ministry. Experiencing God at Home Day by Day will guide parents in having daily worship together as a family. It also helps mom and dad lead the kids toward developing their own personal relationship with Christ at each age and stage of growing up.

Gathering together for worship is an indispensable part of your family’s spiritual life. It is a means for God to reveal himself to you and your loved ones in a powerful way.

This practical guide by Donald S. Whitney will prove invaluable to families—with or without children in the home—as they practice God-glorifying, Christ-exalting worship through Bible reading, prayer, and singing. Includes a discussion guide in the back for small groups.

This new devotional from Dr. Tony Evans and his son Jonathan
Evans will provide both single and married parents with a resource tool to
maximize those family devotional times, such as the dinner hour or bedtime. The
family virtues–based devotional provides 52 separate topics, one for each week
of the year, and five devotionals within each topic that will guide devotional
times Monday through Friday. This is a wonderful way to build a spiritually
strong family week by week, day after day―a perfect way to head into the
weekend. Topics range from the basics of the faith―such as salvation, spiritual
warfare, prayer, forgiveness, and discipleship―to essentials of living as
followers of Christ: money, prayer, family, friends, and priorities. The
subject matter is simplified so even young children can grasp important
concepts. This is a perfect resource for busy families.

“Parenting By The Book” by John Rosemond
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $15.99

A Marriage Book with a Difference!

A Revolutionary Message

“I’ve been married 35 years and have not heard this taught.”

  • “This is the key that I have been missing.”
  • “You connected all the dots for me.”
  • “As a counselor, I have never been so excited about any material.”
  • “You’re on to something huge here.”

A Simple Message

A wife has one driving need―to feel loved. When that need is met, she is happy. A husband has one driving need―to feel respected. When that need is met, he is happy. When either of these needs isn’t met, things get crazy. Love and Respect reveals why spouses react negatively to each other, and how they can deal with such conflict quickly, easily, and biblically.

A Message That Works

Based on over three decades of counseling, as well as scientific and biblical research, Dr. Emerson Eggerichs and his wife, Sarah, have already taken the Love and Respect message across America and are changing the way couples talk to, think about, and treat each other. What do you want for your marriage? Want some peace? Want to feel close? Want to feel valued? Want to experience marriage the way God intended? Then why not try some Love and Respect.

With a down-to-earth, warm, and humorous style, one of America’s top family psychologists sets forth a virtually stress-free, biblically based system of childrearing that encourages family growth in harmony with God’s Word.

Picture respectful, responsible, obedient children who entertain themselves without television or video games, do their own homework, and have impeccable manners. A pie-in-the-sky fantasy? Not so, says family psychologist and bestselling author John Rosemond.

In the 1960s, American parents stopped listening to their elders when it came to child rearing and began listening instead to professional experts. Since then, raising children has become fraught with anxiety, stress, and frustration. The solution, says John, lies in raising children according to biblical principles, the same principles that guided parents successfully for hundreds of years. They worked then, and they still work now!

In this book you’ll find practical, Bible-based advice that will help you be the parent you want to be, with children who will be, as the Bible promises, “a delight to your soul” (Prov. 29:17).

Everything that parents need to survive and thrive in the
21st Century.
Marriage, children and family have been lifelong priorities
for Charles Swindoll. Based on his extensive study of both the Old and New
Testaments, Chuck has drawn together those timeless insights for building close
and rewarding family relationships. Following a biblical exploration of God's
purpose and plans for families, readers are equipped with all the tools
necessary to grow strong healthy families. Chuck then takes a clear-eyed look
at those areas where parents and families often experience difficulties. In
typical Swindoll fashion, these discussions are frank and direct but always
leave the reader filled with hope and encouragement.

When you're the parent of a prodigal, you know you can never pray enough. But how do you persevere when you're tired and discouraged? Prayers for Prodigals offers encouragement for parents to "come boldly before the throne of grace" and intercede daily for their children through a series of inspirational prayers. The book also includes fourteen brief reflections, which are drawn from Scripture and the writer's and others' personal experiences with prodigal children, such as Ruth and Billy Graham and Monica, the mother of Augustine. This unique and helpful book encourages and inspires parents in a sustained, daily prayer effort for their prodigal children.

Daily encouragement for parents who realize the things they want most for their kids are things only God can do . . . so they pray.
As parents we want to protect our children; we want them to move forward in life; most importantly, we want them to take hold of and grow in Christ. And while the advice offered by parenting experts can be helpful, at some point we realize there are no simplistic formulas or sure-fire methods. We need wisdom from God’s Word for this all-important task.

In The One Year Praying through the Bible for Your Kids, trusted author Nancy Guthrie weaves together wisdom and insight from each day’s reading in The One Year Bible, providing encouragement through the triumphs and turbulence of parenting. Day by day you’ll find your dreams and desires for your children are becoming shaped more by Scripture than by the culture around you. Worry less, pray more, and help yourself to a daily dose of perspective, hope, and grace as you parent.

Happy is good. Holy is better.

Your marriage is more than a sacred covenant with another person. It is a spiritual discipline designed to help you know God better, trust him more fully, and love him more deeply. What if God’s primary intent for your marriage isn’t to make you happy . . . but holy?

Sacred Marriage doesn't just offer techniques to make a marriage happier. It does contain practical tools, but what married Christians most need is help in becoming holier husbands and wives. Sacred Marriage offers that help with insights from Scripture, church history, time tested wisdom from Christian classics, and examples from today's marriages.

Sacred Marriage reveals how marriage trains us to love God and others well, how it exposes sin and makes us more aware of God's presence, how good marriages foster good prayer, how married sex feeds the spiritual life, and more.

The revised edition of Sacred Marriage takes into account the ways men's and women's roles have expanded since the book was first written. It has been streamlined to be a faster read without losing the depth that so many readers have valued.

Sacred Marriage uncovers the mystery of God’s overarching purpose. This book may very well alter profoundly the contours of your marriage. It will most certainly change you. Because whether it is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God, and to a spiritual integrity that, like salt, seasons the world around you with the savor of Christ.

Many parents are searching for ways to bond as a family

The chasm between the biblical vision of marriage and the common human conception is—and has always been—gargantuan. Reflecting on over forty years of matrimony, John Piper exalts the biblical meaning of marriage over its emotion, exhorting couples to keep their covenant as a display of Christ’s covenant-keeping love for the church. He aims to lift the church’s low view of marriage to something infinitely greater, namely, a vision of Jesus’s unswerving allegiance to and affection for his bride. This Momentary Marriage unpacks the biblical vision, its unexpected contours, and its weighty implications for married, single, divorced, and remarried alike. Now available in paperback with a freshly redesigned cover, Piper’s book on marriage holds even greater appeal.

Dr. Graham lifts the veil between the visible and the invisible world to give us an eye-opening account of these behind-the-scenes agents. This best-selling classic records the experiences of Dr. Graham and others who are convinced that at moments of special need they have been attended by angels.
Chequebook of the Bank of Faith by CH Spurgeon
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $19.99
Come Down, Lord! by Roger Ellsworth
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $3.00
Crazy Busy by Kevin DeYoung
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $12.00
A short reading for every day.  Spurgeon wrote this selection of
readings to encourage believers to enter into the full provision that
their relationship to Jesus entitled them to realise, on a daily basis.
He explains we have to present the promises of Scripture to God in
prayer and faith, anticipating that he will honour what he has said.
Beautiful volume in tan and burgundy leather.
Come Down, Lord! is a succinct, readable and biblically-based treatment of the vital theme of revival. Its seven short chapters go directly to the heart of the matter, as their headings indicate:

- We miss You;
- We need You;
- We wait for You;
- We will meet You;
- We have wronged You;
- We belong to You;
- We beseech You.

Taking as his starting place the widespread absence of the sense of God's holy presence and our need of his grace, Roger Ellsworth traces the profound analysis of the church's spiritual decay outlined in Isaiah 63:3-64:12, and applies its message to our times.
“I’M TOO BUSY!” We’ve all heard it. We’ve all said it. All too often, busyness gets the best of us.

Just one look at our jam-packed schedules tells us how hard it can be to strike a well-reasoned balance between doing nothing and doing it all.

That’s why author and pastor Kevin DeYoung addresses the busyness problem head on in his best selling book, Crazy Busy — and not with the typical arsenal of time management tips, but rather with the biblical tools we need to get to the source of the issue and pull the problem out by the roots.

Highly practical and super short, Crazy Busy will help you put an end to “busyness as usual.”

How can I know if I'm hearing God's voice?

Life is a series of options, and our choices often affect the rest of our lives. So how do you know what is the right choice? What does God want you to do? And how can you be sure you're hearing him correctly?

In God's Guidance, acclaimed author Elisabeth Elliot offers you insight and observations born from a lifetime of following God's lead to show how and why God guides his children. She invites you to draw closer to God so you can walk confidently, knowing you are in his will. "I have found in the Bible plenty of evidence that God has guided people," writes Elliot. "I find, too, assurance that he is willing to guide me. He has been at it for a long time. His hand reaches toward me. I have only to take it."

Elisabeth Elliot, one of the outstanding women of present-day Christianity, is the author of more than twenty books, including Passion and Purity, The Journals of Jim Elliot, and These Strange Ashes.

God's Pursuit of Man by AW Tozer
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $12.99
Although written two years after the publication of The Pursuit of God,
Tozer's God's Pursuit of Man sets forth the biblical truth that before
man can pursue God, God must first pursue man. A "prequel" of sorts,
God's Pursuit of Man speaks fervently of God's desire for man to be
saved and the action He takes as He "invades" the human soul. Tozer then
explains how it is through the power and promise of the Holy Spirit
that we can truly understand the mystery of the Triune God. Previously
published as The Divine Conquest and The Pursuit of Man.
Good Pictures Bad Pictures is a comfortable, read-aloud story about a mom and dad who teach their child what pornography is, why it's dangerous, and how to reject it. Using easy-to-understand science and simple analogies, this ground-breaking book engages young kids to porn-proof their own brains.

The 5-point CAN DO Plan teaches kids how to avoid the brain-warping images of pornography and minimize the troubling memories of accidental exposure that often tempt kids to look for more and lead them into a dark and destructive addiction. To stay safe in the digital age, kids must install an internal filter in their own brain. Good Pictures Bad Pictures shows them how.

To some, the concept of having faith in a higher power or a set of religious beliefs is nonsensical. Indeed, many view religion in general, and Christianity in particular, as unfounded and unreasonable.

Norman Geisler and Frank Turek argue, however, that Christianity is not only more reasonable than all other belief systems, but is indeed more rational than unbelief itself. With conviction and clear thinking, Geisler and Turek guide readers through some of the traditional, tested arguments for the existence of a creator God. They move into an examination of the source of morality and the reliability of the New Testament accounts concerning Jesus. The final section of the book deals with a detailed investigation of the claims of Christ. This volume will be an interesting read for those skeptical about Christianity, as well as a helpful resource for Christians seeking to articulate a more sophisticated defense of their faith.
Inerrancy and Worldview by Vern Poythress
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $18.00
NIrV Kids Devotional Bible (Age 4-8)
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $22.25
NIrV Study Bible for Kids (Age 6-10)
Our Price (Includes Shipping): $22.25

Though the Bible presents a personal and relational God, popular modern worldviews portray an impersonal divine force in a purely material world. Readers influenced by this competing worldview hold assumptions about fundamental issues—like the nature of humanity, evil, and the purpose of life—that present profound obstacles to understanding the Bible.

In Inerrancy and Worldview, Dr. Vern Poythress offers the first worldview-based defense of scriptural inerrancy, showing how worldview differences create or aggravate most perceived difficulties with the Bible. His positive case for biblical inerrancy implicitly critiques the worldview of theologians like Enns, Sparks, Allert, and McGowan. Poythress, who has researched and published in a variety of fields— including science, linguistics, and sociology—deals skillfully with the challenges presented in each of these disciplines. By directly addressing key examples in each field, Poythress shows that many difficulties can be resolved simply by exposing the influence of modern materialism.

Inerrancy and Worldview’s positive response to current attempts to abandon or redefine inerrancy will enable Christians to respond well to modern challenges by employing a worldview that allows the Bible to speak on its own terms.
