Boyhood and Beyond

Boyhood and Beyond

by Bob Schultz

Bob Schultz, a carpenter by trade, has written a timeless book for boys. Wisdom and common sense are gleaned from short chapters covering topics such as authority, inventiveness, and honesty as well as learning to overcome things like fear, laziness, and temptation. Boyhood and Beyond motivates boys to build their lives on a foundation of strong moral principles. Most importantly, these chapters will encourage boys to become the men God wants them to be as they develop a relationship with Him. This is a "life" book designed to be read and lived out in a boy's life, thus becoming one of his building blocks to godly character and, ultimately, manhood.

Do Hard Things

Do Hard Things

by Alex & Brett Harris

A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

A growing movement of young people is rebelling against the low expectations of today's culture by choosing to "do hard things" for the glory of God. And Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge. Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential. Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life. Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change. Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of an already-happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Lead Your Family In Worship

Lead Your Family In Worship

by Francois Carr

All churches want to experience growth. Many churches are implementing special projects and techniques in order to achieve this growth. But churches consist of families—and families consist of individuals. If a family is spiritually healthy, it leads to spontaneous growth in the church and to the spiritual development of the community. Yet few churches focus their growth, particularly their spiritual growth, on the foundation of the holiness of individuals and family members. The traditional practice of family worship has become neglected as a result. Here Francois Carr pleads for the return of family worship times. What is family worship? Why is it so rarely practiced today? What should a family worship time consist of? How can my family get started? Illustrated with examples of many great men and women in church history, this book answers these questions and demonstrates the influence for good that the practice of family worship has had down through the centuries. Appendixes are included to examples family worship sessions in action.

Mighty Men

Mighty Men

by John Crotts

Christian men often find the task of family leadership so daunting, we withdraw from it into distant uninvolvement - leaving the wife and children with the impression that we don't care enough to lead, or don't want to, when the heart of the problem often is, we're intimidated by our lack of possessing the basic tools. Many Christian men of today's era had little or no training for the role we now find ourselves in! This book provides a "starter kit" for men reluctant to take the reins of spiritual leadership in their homes, and shows the path to imitating Christ in loving, servant headship to those family members who look to us!

Raising Maidens of Virtue: a Study of Feminine Loveliness for Mothers and Daughters

Raising Maidens of Virtue: a Study of Feminine Loveliness for Mothers and Daughters

More than a fashion statement — make a purity statement! Do you want your daughter to cherish her purity and honour God by the chaste and lovely way she presents herself? More than a fill-in-the-blank Bible study, Raising Maidens of Virtue is an engaging tool for mothers to use in training daughters who are approaching womanhood to think biblically. Through stories, allegories, illustrations, and memory-making projects, Raising Maidens of Virtue covers topics such as guarding the tongue, idleness, sibling relationships, honouring parents, contentment, modesty, purity, cleanliness, and feminine biblical beauty. Mothers and daughters alike will experience the wonder and charm of the enchanting maiden years through the winsome watercolour vignettes of Johannah Bluedorn! Godly women are not born, but raised. Stacy McDonald has in this work equipped parents to be about the business of raising up rubies, or rather, that which is more precious still, our daughters. She is a faithful guide, for she is a godly example. - Dr. R. C. Sproul, Jr., Pastor, Director of the Highlands Study Centre, and most importantly, homeschooling father of six. In the face of our culture’s shameless enticement of young women to view their identity and worth only in terms of their sexuality, Stacy McDonald passionately challenges mothers and daughters together to return to a pure and gracious femininity for the God who made us uniquely for His glory. -Tracy Klicka, wife of Sr. Counsel for HSLDA, Chris Klicka We need young women who cherish their purity and desire to honour their parents through chaste behaviour, speech, and dress. We need girls of character who cultivate their minds and emotions to reflect God’s design with joy, intelligence, and delight. – From the Foreword by Jennie Chancey

The Child at Home

The Child at Home

by John S C Abbott

The sequel to the famous and popular volume "The Mother at Home" by the same author. John S.C. Abbott (1805-1877) devoted his life to writing books with children and young people in mind. In his own words, "This book is intended not for entertainment, but for solid instruction. I have endeavoured, however, to present instruction in an attractive form to gain the attention of the young. Though the book is particularly intended for children, or rather for young persons, it is hoped that it will aid parents in their efforts for moral and religious instruction." The subjects covered are: RESPONSIBILITY, DECEPTION, OBEDIENCE, RELIGIOUS TRUTH, PIETY & TRAITS OF CHARACTER. The book is filled with examples drawn from real life that will speak directly to the heart of the child who cares for his never-dying soul. A true classic!

Your Child's Profession of Faith

Your Child's Profession of Faith

by Dennis Gundersen

Do we take the words of a child at face value? How about when he professes to have committed his life to Christ? Is that always a real conversion, or could your child be just trying to please you? A parent ought not to voice doubts that will discourage his child's heart; but we know they are immature as well, and may not know the meaning of the committment they say they wish to make. Least of all we we want to make a mistaken profession of faith that may make them presumptuous, for the rest of their lives, that "I got saved when I was young, so that's taken care of." This is a useful book for parents who want to shepherd their children all the way to the gates of eternal life.
