Whatever: A 90-Day Devotional for Livin’ the True, Noble, and Totally Excellent Life! This devotional for tween girls brings new meaning to the word—less attitude and more gratitude!

Relating personal experiences on and off the field, in The Playbook for Dads: Parenting Your Kids in the Game of Life, Jim Kelly challenges fathers to work hard, pray for their children often, love their wives, and implement 10 principles in their lives and in the lives of their children. Both practical and inspirational, Kelly coaches every dad on how to be the star player for his family.

Backed by research that reveals destructive parenting patterns (even in Christian homes), The Parent Adventure by Rodney Wilson, Selma Wilson, and Scott McConnell teach moms and dads how to prepare their kids for a lifetime with God. The problem starts when parents raise children based on their personal experiences growing up instead of using the Bible as the timeless, authoritative guide.

Every mother wants her children to grow up happy, healthy, and fulfilled. But reaching that destination can be full of indecision, worry, and second-guessing. In her groundbreaking book, Regret-Free Parenting, Catherine Hickem offers seven principles for mothers to raise their children well . . . and know they’re doing it right.

In Raising Financially Confident Kids, personal finance expert Mary Hunt prepares readers to debt-proof their kids by teaching readers how to develop a unique plan designed specifically for children that will tear down attitudes of entitlement, build financial intelligence, and neutralize the glamor of easy spending. Debt-proofed kids are guided by a set of financial values.

In Planned Purity for Parents: Creating an Environment for Sexual Purity, Starting With the Heart, Jennie Bishop, founder of PurityWorks, shares with parents how they can construct a household of purity for themselves, a child, or their family. A resource section with parent/child scripts, object lessons, and more makes this guide a must-have for any mom or dad planning for purity in today’s culture.

The trouble with us is not a lack of self-confidence but that we have far too much self-importance. Putting the premise into action in Embracing Obscurity, an established Christian author electing to remain anonymous writes about living and dying in simplicity, contending that true success, as modeled by Jesus, starts with humility, service, sacrifice, and surrender.

Could the gospel be lost in evangelical churches? In this book, J.D. Greear shows how moralism and legalism have often eclipsed the gospel, even in conservative churches. Gospel cuts through the superficiality of religion and reacquaints you with the revolutionary truth of God’s gracious acceptance of us in Christ. The gospel produces in us what religion never could: a heart that desires God.

Mom’s Pocket Posh Games to Play with Your Kids is a tote-sized collection of fun puzzles and games to play with your 7- to 12-year-old includes a 100-puzzle assortment that includes word search, crossword varieties, hidden objects, and many other age-appropriate puzzles.

A Heart Like His looks at the bond of mutual love and admiration between a man who was not unlike any of us and the one true God who is all good and all powerful. Beth Moore walks us through an exploration of David’s incredible life, drawing spiritual insights from a man who boldly fulfilled his divine destiny not merely by what he did, but who he loved and served.

7 is the true story of how Jen and her family took seven months, identified seven areas of excess, and made seven simple choices to fight back against the modern-day diseases of greed, materialism, and overindulgence. In the midst, they discovered a greatly increased God—a call toward Christ-like simplicity and generosity that transcends social experiment to become a radically better existence.

Angie Smith was 18 weeks pregnant when doctors discovered that the daughter she was carrying had conditions leaving her “incompatible with life.” I Will Carry You is a powerful story of ultimate loss–a parent’s loss of a child–interwoven with the biblical story of Lazarus, helping those walking through the difficult seasons of life to mourn and still have hope.

Angie Smith is one who was quick to encourage a friend, but struggled to believe that God could truly make something spectacular out of her broken-ness and disappointments. Mended takes you on a journey to show how faith lived in the events of daily life is all that it takes to be a part of creating God’s picture of redemption in your life and those around you. Your life does make a difference—because of how He is magnified in the cracks.

Featured in the popular movie Fireproof, The Love Dare by Stephen and Alex Kendrick is a 40-day guided devotional experience that will lead your heart back to truly loving your spouse while learning more about the design, nature, and source of true love. Each reading includes Scripture, a statement of principle, the day’s “dare,” and a journaling area and check box to chart progress.
