    Most Christian parents are bombarded with all kinds of advice and plans and programs for how to be a great parent. In parenting eight kids over the last twenty-five years, Julie Lyles Carr and her husband experienced plenty of opportunity for learning, but it was when they began to understand it was about parenting each child according to their own unique needs and personality style that something wonderful happened. In Raising an Original, Carr helps to redefine the primary purpose of Christian parenting, this raising of the next generation. God has given each of our children specific gifts, abilities and capacities for specific purposes and He can equip parents to discover and support those powerful personality traits if they know where to look and how to respond. So many kids raised in Christian homes launch into their adult lives without any sense of knowing who they are called to be or what their mission on earth is. What if parents, teachers or mentors could help them discover the wondrous, unique threads woven within them that will enable them to see their part in the fabric of God’s universe? Readers of Raising an Original will be equipped to help their children: Understand their unique strengths and the challenges associated with them Discover their God-given gifts and how to use them for His glory Succeed regardless of their circumstances Raising an Original will provide readers with tools for better communication with their children as well as tools for uniquely guiding and disciplining each unique child.  With a helpful and detailed Personality Trait Assessment Tool included as a major part of the book, readers will understand themselves, their parenting style, and their child better. They will also discover ways to improve their children’s communication within sibling groups and with parents themselves. Readers will find freedom in discovering that God hasn’t asked them to raise perfect children; He’s asked them to uniquely raise purposed children.

    We Will Find Joy in the Midst of the AchingWhen his oldest son was diagnosed with severe autism, pastor Jason Hague found himself trapped, stuck between perpetual sadness and a lower, safer kind of hope. This is the common struggle for those of us walking through the Land of Unanswered Prayer. Life doesn’t look the way we expected, so we seek to protect ourselves from further disappointment.But God has a third path for us, beyond sadness or resignation: the way of aching joy. Christ himself is with us here, beckoning us toward the treasures hidden in the darkness.Aching Joy is an honest psalm of hope for those walking between pain and promise: the aching of a broken world and the beauty of a loving God. In this place, rather than trying to dodge the pain, we choose to feel it all―and to see where Jesus is in the midst of struggle. And because we make that choice, we feel all the good that comes with it, too.This is Jason’s story. This is your story. Come, find your joy within the aching.

    Parenting isn't rocket science, it's just brain surgery. And Dr. Joshua Straub has good news for you: You can do it! You don’t need to do all the “right” things as a parent.

In Safe House, Dr. Straub draws from his extensive research and personal experience to help you: - Foster healthy identity and social development in children of any age - Win the war without getting overwhelmed in the daily battles - Discipline in a way that builds relationship - Understand how the culture is affecting your child and what you can do about it - Cultivate responsible, self-regulating behavior in your kids - Establish an unshakeable sense of faith, morality, and values in your home - Feel more confident and peaceful as a parent - Find a greater perspective on parenting than what you might see on a daily basis

    Voted the #1 Focus on the Family program for 2015, Kimberly and LeRoy Wagner’s interview onFierce Women evoked an incredible response. Requests poured in for a companion book geared directly to men, one that would help men who struggle with loving and leading a strong wife. Men Who Love Fierce Women is that book. Paralleling the content and chapters of Fierce Women, but featuring LeRoy’s perspective and Kim’s insider insights, it equips men to better understand, love, and relate to their strong wife. Each chapter closes with a study section of diagnostic questions and Scripture to apply the content practically and personally. “Five years into ‘wedded bliss,’ I confessed to Kim that I no longer loved her,” writes LeRoy. “We were stuck in a destructive relationship pattern that we now refer to as the ‘fierce woman/fearful man’ cycle, and I had lost all hope for a peaceful marriage. We’ve discovered that this is a common relationship dynamic, and we want to encourage and equip husbands and show them a promising way forward.” Men Who Love Fierce Women is flexibly designed to stand alone, pair with Fierce Women, or facilitate for a group study.

    "How could God let this happen? I can't do this! How can my child have a meaningful life? Where is God in all this?"When a parent hears that their child has a disability, hearts and hopes are broken. But faith doesn't have to be. Unbroken Faith identifies and treats the crippling fear, guilt, and inadequacy that parents of children with special needs can encounter. Diane Dokko Kim comes alongside families as a fellow special-needs parent to help reconcile the premise of a good God with the devastating realities of raising a child with disability. Diane courageously articulates deep-seated, unspoken doubts and fears you may have but are afraid to voice:  Why my child? Why us? This is not the way it's supposed to be! Why won't God fix this? Doesn't He care? I'm the wrong parent for this child. I'm not qualified.  No one understands what I'm going through. What will happen to my child? I can never die. Dokko Kim's biblical-based encouragement will help you understand that you are not alone, that God gets it, and that God's Word is entirely relevant to the raw and messy yet hallowed spaces of special needs parenting.

    “A long and happy marriage.” It sounds like the end of a fairy tale—an illusion that modern times have exposed.  And it is, if marriage depends on a constant stream of romantic emotion, or even on copious amounts of time or money. Thank the Lord, none of those are necessary. Two thousand years ago, Paul gave women the key to a successful marriage, and it can be summed up in two words: unconditional respect. It’s not popular. It doesn’t sound fair. It can be hard to imagine. But it works. Nina Roesner has led countless women through this practical and life-changing journey, and in The Respect Dare she offers you the hope that so many others have found. Day by day, true stories and thought-provoking questions will help you apply biblical wisdom to the most important relationship in your life. The audiobook is filled with stories of struggle and success, and many practical applications of respect that have dramatically impacted marriages. Give it forty days. Experience the intimacy God intended and discover what he can do in your heart and in your marriage when you choose to show respect his way.
