  • Strong And Smart A Workbook For Boys Ages 6-12

    Research tells us that globally, on average, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day. This staggering statistic indicates that many men suffer from hopelessness and despair.

How can we help raise our sons to handle difficult emotions and process complex ideas of masculinity?

    Drawing from 25 years of counseling boys and working with parents, David Thomas explains what’s behind these and other common struggles such as anger issues, anxiety, and depression. In all, parents will be equipped to raise emotionally strong and healthy boys who will grow up to be rooted in practices of well-being that will serve them their whole lives.

    Strong and Smart: This engaging workbook provides boys with the opportunity to learn the foundational skills to be set on a biblical path of masculinity that differs from unhealthy or even toxic masculinity.

    Authors Ariel and Michael Tyson explain, “Virtue is something within you, but it’s like a muscle. You have to keep practicing it to help it grow strong. We want to teach kids this by showing them the distinct characters of the book and how they relate to areas where they may need to grow in their own lives.”

  • Gwen Tells Tales

    $15.99

    This colorful, beautifully illustrated children’s book invites children ages four through seven into Gwen Raccoon’s world to learn alongside her how to have the courage to always tell the truth.

    Gwen Raccoon is embarrassed when she gets a failing grade on a math test. But that’s not the big problem: the big problem is that she is cultivating the habit of lying to do what she wants and cover up her mistakes. Gwen’s lies pile up. But when Mama confesses her own failure to tell the truth, Gwen gains the courage to confess and ask forgiveness of Jesus and of those she has lied to.

    Edited by Edward. T. Welch, Gwen Tells Tales helps young readers see how God always accepts us when we confess sin and repent; and further, how he gives us the humility to speak the truth when it’s hard. A special section at the end of the book guides parents in helping their children be truth-tellers. Also included is a tear-out page of Back Pocket Bible Verses to remind children and adults that God’s forgiveness is always available to cleanse us from sin; and the Holy Spirit always gives strength to speak the truth.

    Gwen Tells Tales is part of the Good News for Little Hearts series, bringing gospel help and biblical counsel to families. Based on CCEF’s model of hope and help, each story focuses on an animal family’s real-life issues, encouraging young readers toward a growing relationship with Jesus in the midst of challenging circumstances.

  • Tell God How You Feel

    $12.99

    We learn from an early age how to navigate the difficult emotions of life. Fear. Sadness. Worry. Loneliness. Rejection. For some of us, we learn to avoid painful emotions.

    Tell God How You Feel is a discipleship tool for parents to use in engaging their children with their emotions. It is designed to help children learn to bring their emotions to God and tell him what hurts. It teaches them the process of Biblical lament.

    In Tell God How You Feel, Christina Fox uses warm encouraging story times to help children engage with the vivid, descriptive words of the Psalms of Lament, helping them develop the habit of turning to God during hard and difficult times.

    These read aloud stories are ideal for family times with thoughtful questions and discussion starters at the end of each story.

  • Tale Of Two Kings

    $18.99

    Will the Real King Please Stand Up?

    From the very beginning, the Bible tells a story of redemption. God made the first man to rule as king over all He created, only to see Adam’s reign end before it had barely begun. God knew all this and that’s why He sent the One True King, Jesus, to dwell with us and reclaim what Adam had lost, saving mankind from the penalty of sin.

    Bestselling author Gloria Furman makes this concept come alive for kids in this colorful and creative book comparing Adam, the archetype, with Christ, “the last Adam.” Children will learn that while Adam’s sin sentenced all of us to death, Jesus’s crucifixion and glorious resurrection restored the promise of eternal life for all those who believe in Him.

    Kids will be reassured that because Jesus is still on the throne, they can trust him whenever they feel sad or scared. There’s nothing that Christ their King can’t do for them!

Betty Confetti breaks the myth of perfection and instills in children the foundational truth that even when we mess up, God is still working in our lives, and our stories aren’t over because:

    God walks our journeys with us, He knows us the very best,
    Even when we make mistakes, He doesn’t love us any less.
