This book goes beyond boundary setting, and instead empowers parents to cultivate convictions in their children so they can stand strong when faced with temptation. While other books focus on modifying a child’s behavior, this book gives parents the power to ignite lasting character transformation in their kids. Parents are equipped to effectively convey truths through a healthy discipleship connection. Author and mother of three Laura Gallier focuses on three critical areas: Preparation, Application, and Motivation. She guides parents and children into a biblical understanding of the purposes and sacredness of sex within marriage as well as the realities of sexual sin. She also provides practical tools to assist parents in this sometimes awkward (but very crucial) life issue. Arm your kids today with emotional, spiritual, and physical ammunition that will keep them from making the wrong choices.
Motivated by a passion for the preservation of family values, Laura B. Gallier has spent the last decade as a youth minister and advisor to teens and parents. She and her husband, Patrick, pastor Fellowship Family Church in Cypress,Texas, and maintain an adventurous home life that consists of three children.
Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real Life Engagement is a journey with (in)courage writers sharing real-life inspirational stories, practical Scripture application, and connection challenges that will encourage you to embrace the desire God has given each of us for connection, to invest in meaningful relationships, right where God has you, and to become the friend you wish you had. We all long for meaningful Christian relationships, the Colossians 3:14 kind that fulfills our desire for unity and connection with God, our friends, and our community. The (in)courage community invites you to grab a cup of coffee, pull a chair up to the table, and commit to creatively and prayerfully fulfilling your cravings for connection.
Quite simply, one of the most powerful, moving pieces of Christian literature of modern times.Other books have recorded the crucifixion and resurrection, but never before has the reader been ushered into unseen realms to witness the power of the cross as seen from the view of God the Father. You will discover a whole world of new meaning of Christ’s death as you witness the destruction of the world systems, the annihilation of the law, the end of Adam’s fallen race…and the death of Death. Here is an unequaled drama of power and depth which Christian literature has rarely, if ever, achieved.
Edwards’s The Day I Was Crucified as Told by Jesus the Christ now takes its place among the greatest of Christian literature. We will still be reading this book 200 years from now, and still weeping (and praising) as we read.
This is one of those rare life-transforming books.
This book is unlike any other I have ever written. It should be read only by married couples, those immediately contemplating marriage, and those who counsel married couples. It is deliberately frank. I have long felt a need for a clear and detailed presentation of the intimate relationship that exists between a husband and wife. Most Christian books on this subject skirt the real issues and leave too much to the imagination; such evasiveness is not adequately instructive. Secular books, on the other hand, often go overboard telling it like it is in crude language repulsive to those who need help. In addition, such books usually advocate practices considered improper by biblical standards. To keep the facts that every couple needs to know from being offensive, I am writing this book with the help of Beverly, my wife of fifty years.

Do you feel a call from God to be a pastor? Do you have a desire to lead and serve others? The office and calling of a pastor is the most demanding of the five-fold ministry gifts but it can also be the most rewarding. You should never “choose” to be a pastor but instead wait upon the Lord to confirm to your heart that He has “called” you to serve as a pastor.
Packed with stories that relate to practical experiences, the author shares candidly about his experiences, mistakes and successes over thirty years. The principles found in this book are principles that Pastor Happy Caldwell has taken and applied from the Word of God. He believes that when you keep the Word of God before you all the time and are led by the Spirit of God, you will be successful in all you set out to accomplish. If God has called you to be a pastor, then it is His desire to see you answer that call and fulfill your assignment with joy.
