  • Game Plan For Loss

    $17.99

    There is always a plan.

    Joe Gibbs has dedicated his life to helping the “average Joe” apply Biblical principles to everyday situations, using the Bible as a game plan. But in 2019, when his son, J.D., lost his battle with a degenerative brain disease at the age of 49, Joe realized that while he did have a game plan for life, he did not have a game plan for dealing with loss.

    Reeling, he set out to find answers to the 5 questions that plagued him throughout J.D.’s illness:

    1. Why didn’t God show up?
    2. Why does God allow suffering?
    3. Why do some people suffer more than others?
    4. Are we living a life of chance?
    5. Do we really reap what we sow?

    Written with the non-Christian in mind, Game Plan for Loss presents Coach Gibbs’ answers to these questions in plain, everyday language, proving once again that the Bible is in fact the ultimate game plan, and even though it may not always feel like it, God is there, He is listening, He does have a plan, and everything does work together for good for those who love and serve Him.

  • Hope For The Hurting

    $14.99

    Life is painful.

    Everyone’s story comes with unique challenges, difficulties, bumps, and bruises that leave you lost and drowning in their wake. It could be a financial disaster, a health issue, a broken relationship, or the loss of a loved one.

    Dr. Tony Evans, bestselling author and pastor of Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, understands life’s hardships firsthand. In a span of less than two years, he lost his brother, sister, brother-in-law, two nieces, father, and wife. At the same time, both of his daughters received cancer diagnoses. In the wake of all this pain, Dr. Evans had to put into practice, at the deepest levels, the truths he has preached about God for more than forty years.

    God’s Word doesn’t promise us a life free from pain and trouble. It promises us something else-Someone else. Someone who will walk with us through all of life’s trials and troubles.

    There is hope for the hurting: His name is Jesus.

  • Flood Of Kindness

    $17.99

    Perfect for all children experiencing loss or grief, A Flood of Kindness gracefully confronts difficult feelings and celebrates the healing power of kindness.

    “The night the river jumped its banks, everything changed.”

    So begins A Flood of Kindness, a poignant picture book that addresses grief and loss and demonstrates how kindness can bring hope. Written in spare prose and told from an intimate first-person point of view, the story follows Charlotte, a young girl who watches floodwaters rise in her home and is forced to evacuate to a shelter with her parents. Kind people she doesn’t know give her food, socks and shoes to keep her feet warm, and a place to sleep. As Charlotte adjusts to the shelter–a strange, crowded place that is not home–she grapples with feelings of anger and sadness. But as the days go by, Charlotte starts to realize how grateful she is for the things that she does have–her parents, a cot to sleep on, food to eat–and starts looking for ways to help others in the shelter.

    All children deal with sadness and loss in some way, whether it stems from a natural disaster, the death of a pet, or moving to a new place. A Flood of Kindness acknowledges those difficult feelings and helps readers process them in a healthy way. Children will be encouraged to be kind to those who need a friend and to help others in whatever way they can, no matter how small.

  • Shaped By Suffering

    $18.00

    Suffering comes to us all. But Christians today are often not prepared to suffer well and have a short-sighted view of pain and trials. In this book Ken Boa shows how God uses suffering to shape his children for eternity and to grow them in Christlike character. The nature of our affliction is not as important as our response to it, and God is at work through our hardships and wants to use them to prepare us for eternal life.

  • How Can I Grieve To Gods Glory

    $3.00

    Some believers feel guilty when they grieve because they know that they should rejoice in the Lord always (Phil. 4:4).

McGraw furnishes readers with the necessary tools to grieve in a sanctified way and exercise faith under hardship. Come and learn to express rather than repress your grief as you walk through sorrows with Christ by faith.

  • What The Bible Says About Suffering

    $29.99

    21 Chapters

    Additional Info
    Have you ever asked yourself that question?

    Where is God When We Suffer? addresses the topic from up close and personal as well as from the objective view of Scripture. It begins with Lynn’s own story of loss and suffering. Dr. Gardner then guides us through a study of both Old and New Testament examples of people who suffer.

    Why did they suffer? How did they deal with it? What can we learn from their experiences? This book also includes a philosophical discussion of evil and suffering for those who want an analysis of this difficult topic from a biblical perspective. How can an all-powerful, all-loving God permit such pain and tragedy in the world He created? In the final fourth of the book, Dr. Gardner gives very practical advice on what helps people who are suffering and what does not. He also lists scriptural principles that offer help and hope for those going through hard times and for the family and friends trying to help them.

    Obviously, there are situations that are not directly addressed in the Bible because of societal, changes, culture, and technology. Yet, if the Bible is the ultimate authority on life and relationships, it is the essential source of information that will impact everyday decisions.

    This book provides a valuable overview of the biblical teaching on suffering, but it does much more. It is filled with practical counsel, drawn both from the teaching of Scripture and a lifetime of ministry.

  • Grief And Pain In The Plan Of God

    $11.99

    Most of us will have faced that most delicate situation of meeting a person who is suffering. We tend to go down one of two different avenues. One is to offer well-intentioned advice – often in the form of well-worn cliches that the person will have heard several times before. The other is not to say anything at all – risking the danger of leaving the person under the impression that God has no idea what is going on and is unable to help.

    How are we to understand suffering and its place in our lives? Should we try and rationalize it away, trying to come up with a solution that sits as comfortably as possible? Surely we should look to Scripture first? This is what Walter Kaiser does here. Looking at the Old Testament book of Lamentations Kaiser does not offer any easy solutions – but rather shows us how a Sovereign and Loving God can work through even the most painful moments.
