What's gone wrong when chastisement doesn't work? How can appropriate punishments be determined? What are the most subtle signs of rebellion? How do parents accidentally train their children to disobey them? What can be expected of children at what ages? What exactly is sass and how can it be stopped? Pastor and family counselor and minister Reb Bradley answers these and many more questions like these in this best-selling child-rearing book.  ISBN #1938067002

When Sinners Say "I Do"

By Dave Harvey

Marriage is the union of two people who arrive at the altar toting some surprisingly large luggage. Often it gets opened right there on the honeymoon, sometimes it waits for the week after. The Bible calls it sin and understanding its influence can make all the difference for a man and woman who are building a life together. When Sinners Say "I Do" is about encountering the life-transforming power of the gospel in the unpredictable journey of marriage.  

When Sinners Say I Do

The Fulfilled Family

By John MacArthur

In a world of divorce, casual sex, and homosexual unions, "family", once the bedrock of our culture, is becoming a matter of uncertainty and argument. From some quarters, traditional roles for men and women are ridiculed. And standing firm in a healthy, well-functioning family is harder than ever.

So how can you have a happy home? How can you pass on strong morals to your children in a world going awry? By following God's divine plan for family life," writes Bible teacher, pastor, father, and grandfather John MacArthur in this book.

There's no magic formula. There's no gimmick. It's not about how many times you do something, or who is in charge of this or that, or what kind of processes or methods you use. It comes down to answering these questions: "Am I committed to obedience to the Spirit of God? Am I committed to the controlling influences of the Word of God? Am I going to live out a Christian life?" If you can answer yes to all of those questions, then you are bound to have a successful, fulfilled, God-honoring family life.

Uprooting Anger: biblical help for a common problem

By Robert D. Jones

You've got to get the weeds by the roots, or they'll just grow back. So too with deep-rooted anger. Moralistic efforts to be patient with your coworkers won't cut it. Regret-riddled resolutions to stop yelling at your kids won't last. You must rip out those angry roots.

But is uprooting sinful anger a realistic goal? Can it happen? God's answer in the Bible is "Yes!" Whether you tend to simmer or strike out, whether you implode or explode, there is biblical help for you. Robert Jones shows us how to effect godly change in our lives in this practical Christ-centered resource.

Chasing Love:

by Sean McDowell

For the Parent of Teens:  The music we listen to, the movies we watch—they're all telling us to keep chasing love, and that we'll finally be happy when we find it.
 
But is love really all we need? 
 
The love that the world tells us to pursue is all about self, about following your heart’s desires. But what is the Christian worldview on love? When we follow Jesus, we realize that he invites us to reorient the focus of our lives, so instead of chasing love primarily for our own happiness, we are first and foremost to give love—to God and to others. 
 
In
Chasing Love, Sean McDowell will invite readers into Jesus’ radical, upside-down approach to love, and in doing so, he’ll answer some of the toughest questions we’re asking about love today:
 

  • How does Jesus speak to singleness?
  • What does the gospel say about LGBTQ issues?
  • Can sexual sin truly be forgiven?
  • What if I’m not happy in my marriage?
