  • Home Built From Love And Loss

    Grieving is part of every blended family.

    Sabrina and her new husband were both widowed when their families blended, so grieving was expected. They recognized the losses suffered in their families would take time to heal. What they have since learned is that every blended family experiences grieving whether you are widowed or divorced. And the process usually takes longer than expected.

    *work through different parenting styles as a stepmother or stepfather;

    *parent kids in different ages and stages of development (hormones, personalities, and power dynamics);

    *compassionately address chaos and hurt feelings together and independently;

    *deal with feelings of guilt;

    *handle initial rejection from stepchildren;

    *glean biblical wisdom on how to do life together with grace;

  • New Marriage Same Couple

    $19.99

    “For better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health.” We say those words and mean them. Until we don’t. This is a book about creating a different, better, new kind of marriage with the exact same person–no matter how dire the circumstances–with vision, commitment, and hope in the Lord.

    Remember those early days of love? When your heart felt all fluttery, and you saw your person through rose-colored glasses? They could do no wrong. You were going to have the most beautiful life with big adventures and lots of sex. Of course, everyone says marriage is work, you knew that. But that was okay; you could get through anything together. It was going to be great.

    Until it wasn’t.

    Something happened. Or maybe nothing happened. Maybe it was one big something, or a lot of little somethings over many years that landed you in a marriage you hardly recognize. For Josh and Katie Walters, it was a big something: infidelity. Now they counsel couples who find themselves exactly where they were: lost, hopeless, and unsure of how to fix their marriage.

    This book lays out the principles Josh and Katie learned in that season when God healed and restored their marriage. This process is broken into four parts and is an acronym for the word STAY:

    *S–start with you. (Discovering that when one person changes, the entire relationship changes.)

    *T–take quitting off the table. (Bringing your whole self to the solution and not checking out mentally and emotionally.)

    *A–allow others to be a part of your journey. (Trusting the right people, in the right ways, at the right time.)

    *Y–yield to vision. (Looking past what is and imagining what could be.)

    New Marriage, Same Couple is a book about hope. It’s about how to create a brand-new marriage with your spouse, whether you’ve been married for a short time, or for decades.

  • Parenting : The Complex And Beautiful Vocation Of Raising Children

    $39.99

    Books on parenting abound, with many suggesting that specific strategies will produce desired results. Gifted theologian Holly Taylor Coolman offers something different: a theologically and biblically rich commentary on the theme of raising children.

    As a mother of five who is known for approaching parenting in a theological way, Coolman is often asked for advice. In this book, she explores parenting as a complex and beautiful vocation in which mothers and fathers themselves are made and unmade, offered troubling sorts of gifts, and drawn deeper into connection not only with their children but also with God, others, and themselves. Coolman describes child-rearing as a vocation to which parents are called that requires them to develop the skills of apprenticeship and invitation. She also locates raising children firmly within the context of the church.

    This book will appeal to Christian parents, especially adoptive and foster parents, as well as pastors, church leaders, and students.

  • 4 Relationship Styles

    $39.99

    The good news is, whatever relationship style you have naturally, you’re not stuck with it! Using the strategies found in this book, you can:

    – identify your relationship style (and your partner’s)
    – understand the strengths and challenges of that style
    – overcome feelings of rejection and failed relationships
    – recognize the patterns and behaviors that are affecting your relationships
    – develop better ways to express and receive love

    If you’ve been caught in a cycle of unsatisfying relationships, discover how attachment theory can help you take the guesswork out of understanding why people behave the way they do–especially in times of stress–so you can find and sustain a love that lasts.

  • Easter Changes Everything

    $4.99

    Families learn all about the Easter story and everything leading up to it in the weeks before Easter, but what happened after Easter?

    Easter Changes Everything: a 6-week Devotional for Easter & Beyond is a launching pad for families after Easter. For Jesus’s friends, the resurrection wasn’t the end of their stories–it was the beginning! Jesus went to heaven, and they were left to share the good news that Jesus’s death paid the price for our sins!

    Each week, families will read one vibrant, illustrated Bible story about how Easter changed everything for Jesus’s followers. Then, families will complete three devotions together throughout the week where they will read the Bible together and answer questions about how Easter changes their own lives.

    After six weeks of story and discussion, families will be challenged to keep reading the Bible together and ask the most important question: if Easter changes everything, how does it change me?

  • Loyal To A Fault

    $19.99

    Do you find yourself living as the people pleaser or peacekeeper? Do you avoid conflict? Learn how to overcome your fears about setting boundaries and step into a life that’s overflowing with love, respect, and healthy relationships.

    We are people who love patterns, even if returning to these patterns continues to hurt us or those we love. Some of the most harmful patterns of behavior are passed down through generations and inherited, often without our permission or awareness. The conflict arises when these behaviors are so deeply woven into early family systems that they later become part of our identities, clashing with who God has created and called us to be.

    As a child, Courtney Burg quickly learned that remaining loyal to others meant keeping secrets, even if these secrets were keeping those she cared for most sick. Her efforts to sustain the peace followed her into adulthood and slowly left her depleted, discouraged, and drowning in the chaos–until Courtney discovered that not only did God grant her permission to engage in relationships differently, but that he gave her specific instruction on how to do so.

    In Loyal to a Fault, Courtney Burg unpacks the various ways we cope with, enable, and participate in unhealthy relationships or generational trauma. Using personal examples and providing practical wisdom, Courtney helps you break free from codependent patterns by:

    *Identifying the role you are playing in keeping the dysfunctional patterns going.
    *Reframing what it means to love and remain loyal to those who matter most.
    *Reminding you that boundary work is a biblical practice.
    *Including end-of-chapter prompts for deeper introspection.

    It is possible to learn how to love others well without losing yourself along the way. People pleasing, complaining, and exhaustion may be today’s norm, but at any moment you can choose to do things differently. Begin setting boundaries and start enjoying relationships in all the ways God designed you to.

  • He Gives More Grace

    $16.99

    Motherhood is one of life’s most joyful yet most difficult gifts. We are eager to get it “right”, yet parenting usually highlights our weaknesses and leaves us worried about our mistakes.

    These hope-filled, positive devotions recognize the realities and pressures, joys and disappointments of motherhood and will give you a precious reminder of grace from God’s word to hold onto each day. They will help you to trust that God’s grace is enough for you and your kids. As the authors say in the introduction, “Our children do not need a perfect mother. What they do need is a mother who recognizes her need for a perfect Savior and understands that this is the greatest need of her children as well.”

    As you focus on the work of Jesus rather than your own efforts, you will feel less pressure and more freedom and joy in all the ups and downs of motherhood.

    Written by a mother-daughter combination (one with four kids aged 10-16 and one with three grown kids and ten grandchildren) who are both grateful recipients of God’s grace and faithfulness in the many seasons, situations and realities of motherhood.
