Beyond the Brady Bunch: Hope & Help for Blended Families

Beyond the Brady Bunch: Hope & Help for Blended Families
$14.99

A message of hope for blended families, from a couple who have been in the trenches - and made it.

Blending a family is far more messy and complicated than any television show portrays. Beyond the Brady Bunch is a heart book, not a how-to book. Christians who find themselves in the midst of step-family life often feel hopeless and far from God, struggling with grief and unforgiveness. From personal experience the authors have found that all the how-to steps in the world don't work if there isn't first a heart change. Speaking with honesty and vulnerability they share their own mistakes and how God dealt with their hearts. The book will help stretch hearts, minds and homes past the image of "perfect" and another "happily ever after" into the hope of God's promise to restore, heal and rebuild.

One Year Father-Daughter Devotions

One Year Father-Daughter Devotions
$14.99
As girls enter their tween and teen years, it's especially important for them to have an open and growing relationship with their father. Unfortunately, this is often the time when parental relationships are strained. The One Year Father-Daughter Devotions can foster communication and understanding; and it's a wonderful way for a father to bond with his daughter during a crucial point in her life. Each of the 365 devotions begins with an introductory story, then daddy-daughter time provides discussion questions, activities, or other practical applications of the daily lesson. A "What's the Word" section gives a related Bible verse to help bring God's Word alive as father and daughter apply the Scripture to their lives. Written by three fathers, the devotions have a tone that is conversational and relatable: the authors use everything from flavored potato chips to the Etch-A-Sketch game to share truths about God's Word and to help fathers and daughters relate to each other.

But youth workers Mark Oestreicher and Joel Mayward realize many parents don't feel comfortable or prepared to have these kinds of conversations. That's why they wrote A Parent's Guide to Understanding Sex and Dating-- to equip you to initiate healthy, honest discussions with your teenager. This book will also help you understand some of the relevant trends and issues in today's youth culture.

Your role as a parent is to do more than provide your teenager with information about sex and dating. You have the opportunity and the calling to help your child live wisely and honor God in this sometimes tricky, occasionally awkward, and always vital area of life.
