A refreshing new “blueprint for motherhood” based on the wisdom of Scripture combined with the expertise of a psychologist and mother of three.
No mother has experienced the joys of parenting without also feeling the nagging doubt that she is inadequate for the task of raising her children. With every imperfection and every small failure, guilt is her accuser.
Dr. Slattery argues that this guilt is the natural product of a mother’s God-given influence over her children-a blessed reminder of her stewardship. While this is a tremendous responsibility, God would not let mothers face it alone. Using the wisdom of the Bible and her own experience as a psychologist and mother, Slattery shows how this guilt can be turned to positive parenting.
Mothers are shown how to create a personal “blueprint for motherhood.” This is both a broad understanding of their own personal approaches and beliefs and a daily action plan for dealing with common obstacles-from being too busy, to saying the wrong thing, to helping children through the inevitable rough patches in their lives.
Parenting is a school for spiritual formation—and our children are our teachers. The journey of caring for, rearing, training, and loving our children will profoundly alter us forever. Sacred Parenting is unlike any other parenting book you have ever read. This is not a “how-to” book that teaches you ways to discipline your kids or help them achieve their full potential. Instead of discussing how parents can change their kids, Sacred Parenting turns the tables and demonstrates how God uses our kids to change us. You’ve read all the method books. Now take a step back and receive some much-needed inspiration. You’ll be encouraged by stories that tell how other parents handled the challenges and difficulties of being a parent—and how their children transformed their relationship with God. Sacred Parenting affirms the spiritual value of being a parent, showing you the holy potential of the parent-child relationship.

The House That Cleans Itself is a true housekeeping guide for the housekeeping-impaired! It boldly takes on the reasons behind chronic messiness and why ordinary home-organization books won’t work. Using the methods of “horizontal thinking,” this book teaches readers how to set up a home so efficiently and logically that it seems to clean itself.
More than a how-to book, The House That Cleans Itself also looks at what God has to say about cleanliness and order, and how He can inspire order in every reader’s life in a fresh and unique way. For added fun, some of the tips Mindy uses come from research for her popular novels, The Trouble with Tulip, Blind Dates Can Be Murder, and Elementary, My Dear Watkins.

Every man was once a boy. And every little has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.
But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored.
John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart, and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer. John Eldredge is the director of Ransomed Heart

This book was originally written with the intent of keeping a record of all that God has done in my life. When I was 30 years old, I began to seek after God for healing, with all of my heart. As I dug deep in the word and studied, I became amazed at what truths I discovered. Everything I learned I would share with my children. I was so excited about God and His power and truth that learning was contagious in my home. I would learn something new and I shared it that same day, a continuous stream of learning and sharing. Thirteen years later, it is still the same. I am still learning, and I am still sharing, and I assumed my kids were all learning along with me.

Long before the earth was formed, the universe lived in harmony, ruled by Love. Then, the unthinkable happened. A tiny stain formed and started to grow. As the stain spread, it rose up to conquer Heaven’s King. The army of the rebellion was quickly defeated and banished to a realm where it would remain in darkness — forever.
Then, as time passed, the rebellion against Love planted its seed into the human race. As that seed grew and spread, it was passed to every soul born on earth and worked to turn each person away from the kingdom of Love.
In this gripping epic, Heaven’s King, the Lord of Love and Ancient Warrior, came to the earth to live as one of us and, ultimately, surrender His life in sacrifice. His sacrifice opened up a path for redemption and teaches us that Love will always conquer.
