    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.

    You count a pregnancy by weeks and Kayla Aimee had only ticked off 24 of the 40 when she unexpectedly went into labor. She thought her church upbringing had prepared her for every circumstance but when tragedy struck and threatened to take the life of her newborn daughter, it felt as though once solid ground had turned to glass beneath her feet, destined to shatter everything she held sacred. When swept into a story of suffering, we all find ourselves vulnerable, questioning everything we thought we knew as we wonder, “Where is God in this?” With everything feeling as fragile as her one and a half pound daughter, Kayla finds herself asking that same question as she faces her greatest fear: that she may have finally become a mother just to lose her only child. Both poignant and humorous, Anchored recounts Kayla’s gripping story of learning to navigate her newfound motherhood in the most unexpected of ways, from holidays in the hospital and middle-of-the-night phone calls to the joy of coming home. With vulnerability and plenty of wit, Kayla lays bare her struggle to redefine her faith, her marriage, and herself within the context of a tragedy she never saw coming. For anyone who has felt their faith in God falter, Anchored extends a gentle invitation to join her as she uncovers a hope that holds.

    There's nothing quite like family--and some people would say that there's nothing better. But in a world where we sometimes know more about the Kardashians than we do about the people sleeping right down the hall, it's easy to forget that walking through life with our family offers all sorts of joy wrapped up in the seemingly mundane. There's even a little bit of sacred sitting smack-dab in the middle of the ordinary. And since time's-a-wastin', we need to be careful that we don't take our people--and their stories--for granted. Whether it's a marathon bacon-frying session, a road trip gone hysterically wrong, or a mother-in-law who makes every trip to the grocery store an adventure, author Sophie Hudson reminds us how important it is to slow down and treasure the day-to-day encounters with the people we love the most. Written in the same witty style as Sophie's BooMama blog, A Little Salty to Cut the Sweet is a cheerful, funny, and tender account of Sophie's very Southern family. It's a look into the real lives of real people--and a real, loving God right in the middle of it all.

    Every parent wants the best possible education for their child--one that fits their child's unique needs, challenges them to grow, and equips them to succeed. But there are so many options--public, private, and charter schools, plus homeschooling and online schooling--that it's easy for parents to feel overwhelmed and, well, undereducated about the choices. What's more, while one schooling option may be right for one child, it may be challenging for another. And sometimes the same child will thrive in one environment in elementary school but falter in that same environment in middle school. What's a parent to do? Parenting expert and longtime educator Dr. Kevin Leman can help. In this practical book, he clearly explains the pros and cons of various schooling options so that parents can make an informed choice about the kind of education that will help their child thrive. He shows parents how to stay involved and engaged with their child's education every step of the way, knowing that the choices they make about school now will reverberate long into that child's future.

    Why do our families have so much power over us? In The Storm-Tossed Family, bestselling author Russell Moore (Onward, Christianity Today's 2016 "Book of the Year Award Winner") teaches readers whether you are married or single, whether you long for a child or shepherding a full house, you are part of a family. Family is difficult because family—every family—is an echo of the gospel.Family can be the source of some of the most transcendent human joy, and family can leave us crumpled up on the side of the road. Family can make us who we are, and family can break our hearts. Why would this social arrangement have that much power, for good or for ill, over us?

    "How can I know God's will for me, personally? It's a question that haunts us all at times-maybe when we're looking for the right job, thinking about moving to a new city, or deciding whether or not to get married. At every stage we have difficult decisions to make, and we long for God's direction and his warm reassurance that we're heading the right way. A Cloud by Day, a Fire by Night captures Tozer's teaching on the will of God taken from sermons he preached just before he left his successful church in Chicago. Tozer was no stranger to facing difficult decisions, and his wisdom and biblical insight will help guide you in decisions of your own. The title comes from the story of God leading his people out of Egypt into the promised land. In the same way, let this book help reveal where he is leading and reassure you that he will be by your side every step of the way."
