Being a Christian leader is a huge privilege. It is also a huge challenge. Paul, a man who knew how tough it could be, wrote a letter to his young friend who was at a crossroads in the ministry, to encourage resilience in the spiritual battle.

John Benton looks at what 2 Timothy has to say about finding strength, recovering from discouragement and keeping going as a Christian leader.

No one has influenced the person you are today like your mother. The way she handled your needs as a child has shaped your worldview, your relationships, your marriage, your career, your self-image—your life. Our Mothers, Ourselves can help you identify areas that need reshaping, to make positive choices for personal change, and to establish a mature relationship with Mom today.

You'll learn how your mom affected you as a child and may still be affecting you today. And you'll find a realistic and empowering approach to filling your unmet mothering needs in healthy, life-changing ways through other people.

Our Mothers, Ourselves is a biblical route to wholeness and growth, to deeper and more satisfying bonds with your family, friends, and spouse—and to a new, healthier way of relating to your mother today.

Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time has captured the imagination of millions - from literary sensation to timeless classic and now a major motion picture starring Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Storm Reid, and Mindy Kaling. A Light So Lovely tells the story of the woman at the center of it all—her imagination, her faith, her pattern of defying categories, and what readers today can learn from her legacy.

Bestselling and beloved author Madeleine L'Engle, Newbery winner for A Wrinkle in Time, was known the world round for her imaginative spirit and stories. She was also known to spark controversy - too Christian for some, too unorthodox for others. Somewhere in the middle was a complex woman whose embrace of paradox has much to say to a new generation of readers today.

A Light So Lovely paints a vivid portrait of this enigmatic icon's spiritual legacy, starting with her inner world and expanding into fresh reflections of her writing for readers today. Listen in on intimate interviews with L'Engle's literary contemporaries such as Philip Yancey and Luci Shaw, L'Engle's granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis, and influential fans such as Makoto Fujimura, Nikki Grimes, and Sarah Bessey, as they reveal new layers to the woman behind the stories we know and love. A vibrant, imaginative read, this book pulls back the curtain to illuminate L'Engle's creative journey, her persevering faith, and the inspiring, often unexpected ways these two forces converged.

For anyone earnestly searching the space between sacred and secular, miracle and science, faith and art, come and find a kindred spirit and trusted guide in Madeleine—the Mrs Whatsit to our Meg Murry—as she sparks our imagination anew.

If you struggle with same-sex attraction, or know someone who does, then this book is for you. Some Christians who think of themselves as “gay” have sought healing and sexual re-orientation. Some have chosen a freer interpretation of the biblical texts. Others don’t know where they belong, or what they should believe. Still others remain gay-identified yet choose to live as celibates. All have found that their sexual orientation strongly influences, even defines, who they perceive themselves to be.

But Jeanette believes that to identify herself as “gay” does not do justice to what God has been doing in her life. As a Christian you belong to Christ. “I have been born from on high and have a completely new DNA, God’s DNA, residing in me and flowing through me,” says Jeanette. “I am no longer a sinner but a saint. I am a daughter of the King.”

With intelligence, compassion and fellow-feeling Jeanette explains what it means, as a Christian who has wrestled for the whole of her adult life with same-sex attraction, to live honestly and consistently as a Bible-believing Christian.

Life isn't always predictable or safe, and today's kids live in an increasingly unstable world. Being bombarded by headlines highlighting school shootings, bullying, and ethnic violence is only the start. Add on peer pressure, a friend's betrayal, nasty jabs on social media, and being stuck in the middle of a divorce, and it's no wonder kids of all ages are facing significant trauma.

In When Your Kid Is Hurting, internationally known psychologist and New York Times bestselling author Dr. Kevin Leman offers practical, time-tested strategies to best help hurting kids, including

  • what to say (and not say) when bad things happen
  • how to get a hurting kid to talk to you
  • when to intervene and when to let your child problem-solve
  • how to turn trauma into teachable moments rather than fostering a victim mentality
  • understanding the three greatest fears every kid has . . . and the biggest antidotes
  • how being proactive can turn difficult situations around and provide future protection
  • why the words you choose to use with your child are critical to their recovery

You can help your child get up after being knocked down. When Your Kid Is Hurting will help you not only be your child's best advocate in a healthy way but also reveal secrets for strengthening your lifelong relationship.
