How will you teach your children courage? They need it. You sense that already. The choices your kids face are much tougher than the ones you wrestled with--the evil more flagrant, society more corrupt, the pressure to conform more intense. At the outside, you have about fifteen years to prepare them, maybe less. They ll need courage or frankly, they may not make it. Without a plan, you won t either. Through inspiring stories, practical teaching and hefty doses of common sense, veteran family advocate Tim Kimmel charts a course your family can follow. No, it won t happen the same way in every home. But your investment in preparation will pay off when the heat s on. It s the most strategic investment you may ever make. Includes questions for small group study."

The greatest influencers in a child's life are his or her parents. Children parrot words they hear at home. They mimic behaviors they see lived out in front of them. You can tell a great deal about a child's home life if you listen and watch for a few moments. Wouldn't it be great, after spending a short time with a child, to see evidence that parents are sowing spiritual seeds!

As those involved in children's ministry, our hearts overwhelmingly desire to see children begin a lifelong adventure with Jesus as their Savior and Lord. But, our time and influence are limited. God is aware of that! He wants you to have an influence on the kids you come in contact with. But, His plan is much broader. He created "family"--the ultimate in small groups and a place where He meant for a child's faith to be home grown.

In Home Grown you'll be challenged to come alongside parents, to both equip them and encourage them to step into the calling God has placed on their lives. That calling is to live out their faith in front of their children and not shy away from the biblical mandate to be their child's primary spiritual leader.

May you be rejuvenated with excitement at what's possible when parents lead their children daily in God's Word and closer to Him.

"few things more attractively display and persuasively commend the glory of God in the life of a Christian than a Christ-centered marriage and a Christ-centered family... one that would cause the watching world to sit up and take notice." So writes Ed Hartman as he contemplates the news that his young wife is probably suffering from a brain tumor.

It was a wake-up call to raise his family with a more eternal perspective.

We live in a consumer culture that exalts and commends living with a passion for the moment - our society depends on it. The prospect of future gain is easily set aside in exchange for the personal gratification that we rarely delay - proven by our all-time high in consumer debt. We have bought a subtle lie that there will be no day of final accounting - and so our children don't live with an eternal perspective.

When Ed's wife, Amy, died from that brain tumor, all the flowers at the funeral did not come with a card saying 'with our condolences' but with the phrase 'welcome to your new home' - a phrase Amy picked out herself. As Ed says:

"Few things, like death, will put life in perspective. And few things, like accountability, will put obedience in perspective. This life is transitional; it can prepare us to be welcomed into our new, eternal home. And it provides us with a lifetime of opportunities to invite others along, beginning with our own families."

So join in with Ed and his family as they explore what makes a Godly home - and a way of attractively displaying and persuasively commending the glory of God in the life of a Christian family.

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.

Experience the Blessings of an Imperfect Marriage. We all-at one time or another-have the opportunity to act right when our spouse acts wrong. There are no perfect marriages or perfect spouses. We know that having a good marriage requires effort and hard work. Yet we often don't know how to continue to love when we are angry, hurt, scared, or just plain irritated. Nor are we sure what that kind of love is supposed to look like. Should we be patient? Forgive and forget? Do something else entirely?

Acting right when your spouse acts wrong will not necessarily guarantee a more satisfying marital relationship, nor will it automatically make your spouse change his or her ways-although both could occur. It will, however, help you see how God is stretching you in the midst of your marital difficulties, teach you to respond wisely when wronged, and lead you into a deeper relationship with Christ as you yield your will to his plan for your life and learn to be more like him.

The pages of this book tell of our predestination, which was planned by God from the beginning of time. No doubt about it, God has a purpose for everyone. His purpose for us existed before we even hit planet earth. "I chose you before I formed you in the womb; I set you apart before you were born. I appointed you a prophet to the nations" (Jeremiah 1:5 HCSB).

God forms each person. Then, He strategically configures each person's trials, situations, and circumstances, tailor-made for them. Each is to accomplish His divine purpose-even the fragmented pieces that are affected by our own choices. He throws nothing away! It all works for our good.

"'For I know the plans I have for you'-this is the Lord's declaration-'plans for your welfare, not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope'" (Jeremiah 29:11 HCSB).

Author Phyllis Matthews allows you to witness her personal transformation in action. She put God to the challenge. She was clueless in her life until she allowed God to navigate her steps. "A man's heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps" (Proverbs 16:9 HCSB). Her perception of her life was her reality; it was not God's interpretation. In other words, God had a different picture than what she was seeing or viewing.

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.

Chapter titles include:

Part I

1. The Sanctifying Work of Motherhood

2. Made for Worship

3. What is Idolatry?

4. Identifying Idols in Our Lives

Part II

5. The Idol of Children

6. The Idol of Achievement and Success

7. The Idol of Comfort

8. The Idol of Control

9. The Idol of Approval

Part III
