The four-year-old is whining about wanting candy, the twins' molars are coming in, and suddenly, everybody has to go to the bathroom. For these and many other oh-so-typical child-rearing scenarios, Sandra Aldrich has a message for the exasperated mom: Honey, Hang in There!As the seasoned mother of two now-grown children, Aldrich went through shopping cart chaos, teething, potty training, etc.-and lived to tell about it. In this rejuvenating book, she offers upbeat devotions for harried moms, delivering the message that this stage too shall pass (and then they'll miss it). With humor and warmth, Aldrich gently mentors moms in the art of nurturing their children and making the most of a season that can be crazy, but also fleeting and precious.Wasn't it just yesterday, she writes, I was in the thick of an endless round of zipping snowsuits, buckling car seats, wiping noses, and bandaging knees? For all the moms in that very situation, Aldrich's tips, experiences, and true confessions will add some encouragement and fun and subtract a little frustration from their daily lives.

Even good things can become idols if we give them central importance in our lives. Having children changes everything, and as mothers, we risk looking for life, purpose and meaning in motherhood. While being a mother brings its unique set of challenges, these years of raising children and helping them grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord provide an opportunity to grow in our own Christlikeness as well.

Writing from her own personal experience as a mom, Christina Fox encourages mothers to prayerfully and thoughtfully examine their own hearts, and to let God use motherhood as a means of sanctification.

Split into three sections, the first chapter looks at the meaning motherhood; chapters 2-4 are about idolatry; chapters 5-9 focus on a few different idols that mothers might worship (not an exhaustive list, but a common few); and the final chapters are about facing idols, dethroning them, and turning our heart back to the One true God.

1. The Sanctifying Work of Motherhood

2. Made for Worship

The Activist Mommy, a social media sensation with over 70 million video views, leads the way for today's Christians in the culture war.

News headlines point to a world that has gone stark-raving mad. Right is wrong and wrong is right. Religious liberty is under attack. Gender identity and fluidity is not only accepted but encouraged. Same-sex marriage is embraced by some churches. Deviant sexual practices are taught in schools. Hundreds of thousands of babies are aborted annually. No more! cries Elizabeth Johnston (aka The Activist Mommy), who has made Christian activism a calling for her life and her family. In Not on My Watch, Johnston courageously defends the timeless truths of God's Word and inspires and encourages other Christians to unite in winning this war for our children, our morals, our freedom, and our culture.

"What if we raise our children to gain the world but in the process they forfeit their souls?" ask the writers of Parenting with Kingdom Purpose (True Love Waits founder Richard Ross and best-selling author Ken Hemphill).Indeed, children are a constant reminder of God's goodness. In that light, Christian parents are called to celebrate and nurture the unique personality traits and talents of each precious one with a gracious and eternal perspective. Yet studies indicate 70 percent of teenagers from evangelical homes will drop out of church within two years after high school graduation. What the world has to offer will win their closer attention.Parenting with Kingdom Purpose looks at Bible teaching and the recent National Study of Youth and Religion to shape a fresh approach to raising children that cuts through the chaos of modern life and brings families closest to each other and the Lord.

    It happens to every parent. One day, you have a sweet son or daughter who loves to snuggle on the couch and who puts a smile on your face just by walking into the room. The next day, it's as if someone left the door open and let in an alien with a smart mouth and an attitude that, frankly, you could do without. Entering middle school is like stepping onto a different planet--for parent and child alike. It's a planet where peer pressure, social media, and hormones can wreak havoc in your child's life and in your relationship with him or her.

    But these years don't have to create chaos in your family. Parenting expert and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman's time-tested principles will aid parents in helping their middle schooler not only survive but thrive during these turbulent years on Planet Middle School. He shows parents how to

    - understand their child's rapidly expanding world
    - respond rather than react to emotional swings
    - tell their child about sex (before someone else tells them their version)
    - create opportunities for their child to practice selflessness and gratitude
    - ensure that their kid is one who loves home and family

    Middle schoolers can be a weird, unpredictable species. But with a little help from Dr. Leman, parents will be able to ride out the interstellar storm with humor and confidence.
