  • Views From The Spectrum

    $17.99

    A remarkable inside look at the intersection of faith and autism for parents longing to connect their children with God’s love

    Raising a child with autism is both a challenge and an adventure–and sometimes parents need to know there can also be wonderful potential for blessings. Views from the Spectrum shares the inspiring stories of twenty amazing young adults with autism and how each of their family’s unwavering support and faith in God led them to accomplish what was thought impossible. As a thriving adult with autism himself, Ron Sandison is determined to educate the world on the gifts and talents autism can cultivate–even when they differ from our expectations of typical success.

    While it is primarily a much-needed how-to guide for parents of children with special needs, this book is also a stunning view into the world of autism. Readers will witness the courage of Tyler Gianchetta, who rescued his mother from a burning vehicle. They’ll marvel at the artistic talent of nonverbal poet and artist Kimberly Dixon, admire the determination of Hallie Hovey-Murray, a law student competing for the title of Miss Virginia, and find encouragement in the many other stories within these pages. In addition to these experiences, Sandison has also interviewed top experts in the autism field and shares their insights here.

    Sandison weaves narrative with Scripture, sharing his own journey with autism throughout the book. Full of anecdotes, scientific research, parenting tips, prayers, devotions, and more, Views from the Spectrum is a celebration of autism, faith, and the possibilities at their intersection.

  • Faith That Lasts

    $17.00

    In their work as Christian apologists, father and son Stuart and Cameron McAllister hear from Christian parents who worry about raising their children in the faith amid a seductive culture. Reflecting on their own very different experiences of coming to Christian faith, they share how our homes can be places of honest conversation, open-handed exploration, and lasting faith.

    “Please fix my kid.” In their work as Christian apologists, father and son Stuart and Cameron McAllister have heard many variations on this theme from concerned parents. It’s a sentiment many Christian parents can relate to-a deep and fearful sense of their own inadequacy to raise their children in the faith amid a seductive culture that’s often hostile to Christianity. In Faith that Lasts, the McAllisters reflect on their own experiences of coming to Christian faith-Stuart from a life of crime on the streets of Glasgow, and Cameron in the context of a loving Christian home. Together they outline three dangerous myths that we all too easily buy into: that fear can protect our children, that information can save them, and that their spiritual education belongs to the experts. They reconsider each myth in the light of the Christian faith and their own experiences. When our confidence is rooted in the good news of Jesus, our homes can be places of honest conversation, open-handed exploration, and lasting faith.

  • Spiritual Conversations With Children

    $17.00

    We are born into this world with a natural longing to connect to God and other human beings.

    When children have a listening companion who hears, acknowledges, and encourages their early experiences with God, it creates a spiritual footprint that shapes their lives. How can we increase our capacity to engage children in spiritual conversations? In this book Lacy Finn Borgo draws on her own experience of practicing spiritual direction with children. She offers an overview of childhood spiritual formation and introduces key skills for engaging conversation–posture, power, and patterns–from a Christ-centered perspective. “When we are fully present and open to another, we will be changed,” Borgo writes. “Indeed, as you listen to God with a child, the child will lead you into a fuller experience of God’s love and acceptance.” In this book you’ll find:
    *Sample interactive dialogues with children
    *Ideas for engaging children with play, art, and movement
    *Prayers to use together

  • Not If But When

    $12.99

    Pornography is wreaking havoc in our culture destroying families, and marriages. One of the greatest tools the enemy has used when it comes to pornography has been this: silence.

    Too many parents have been embarrassed or felt ill-equipped to deal with this subject, so they don’t talk about it at all.

    This book is meant to be read alongside your child. It is pitched at seven to twelve-year-olds. While you may protest that seven is too young, please note that the average age of porn exposure is now eight years-old. Plus, wouldn’t you want your children to be exposed to the truth of God’s Word about sex before they hear lies from the world?

    As you introduce your children to the stories of Sarah or Samuel you will negotiate together the problems, challenges and truths of God’s wonderful gift of sex.

    Features:
    * Girls Story
    * Boys Story
    *Each chapter has a scripture reading and two teaching points.

  • Honest Answers : Exploring God Questions With Your Tween

    $15.99

    Somewhere between “Jesus Loves Me” and high school cynicism, the childlike acceptance of pat answers about faith is lost–often forever. But while many parents find this transitional period daunting, they don’t want their kids to leave the Christian faith just because they didn’t get good answers to how prayer works or whether dinosaurs were on Noah’s ark. Honest Answers is a discussion book to help parents tackle the God questions that make them sweat. This isn’t the place to come for pat answers that will make their kids nod, smile, and disconnect. Janelle Alberts and Ingrid Faro know that when tweens start asking questions, they’re already old enough to understand the answers. They’re determined to equip parents with the language, theology, permission, and confidence to join in the discussion–and to learn how to offer deeply doctrinal answers in 140 characters or less. The tween years present an incredible opportunity to build trust with kids and to keep them coming back to their parents for answers rather than finding other sources. With the tools and conversational tips here, mom and dad can engage in a hopeful conversation and help their children build a Christian faith to hold them steady their whole lives.

  • Raising White Kids

    $18.99

    With a foreword by Tim Wise, Raising White Kids is for families, churches, educators, and communities who want to equip their children to be active and able participants in a society that is becoming one of the most racially diverse in the world while remaining full of racial tensions. For white people who are committed to equity and justice, living in a nation that remains racially unjust and deeply segregated creates unique conundrums. These conundrums begin early in life and impact the racial development of white children in powerful ways. What can we do within our homes, communities and schools? Should we teach our children to be “colorblind”? Or, should we teach them to notice race? What roles do we want to equip them to play in addressing racism when they encounter it? What strategies will help our children learn to function well in a diverse nation? Talking about race means naming the reality of white privilege and hierarchy. How do we talk about race honestly, then, without making our children feel bad about being white? Most importantly, how do we do any of this in age-appropriate ways? While a great deal of public discussion exists in regard to the impact of race and racism on children of color, meaningful dialogue about and resources for understanding the impact of race on white children are woefully absent. Raising White Kids steps into that void.
