  • Home Built From Love And Loss

    $17.99

    Grieving is part of every blended family.

    Sabrina and her new husband were both widowed when their families blended, so grieving was expected. They recognized the losses suffered in their families would take time to heal.

    Sabrina vulnerably shares her personal experiences and struggles, revealing her mistakes and fears that she had early on in her new marriage and with her new family. In A Home Built from Love and Loss, you’ll learn to:

    *work through different parenting styles as a stepmother or stepfather;

    *parent kids in different ages and stages of development (hormones, personalities, and power dynamics);

    *compassionately address chaos and hurt feelings together and independently;

    *deal with feelings of guilt;

    *handle initial rejection from stepchildren;

    *glean biblical wisdom on how to do life together with grace;

    *connect better on an emotional level with your newly-formed family while keeping traditions that have grounded your family; and

    For anyone facing the challenges of blended families, A Home Built from Love and Loss offers practical advice and spiritual guidance to find hope in the midst of grief.

  • New Marriage Same Couple

    $19.99

    “For better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health.” We say those words and mean them. Until we don’t. This is a book about creating a different, better, new kind of marriage with the exact same person–no matter how dire the circumstances–with vision, commitment, and hope in the Lord.

    Remember those early days of love? When your heart felt all fluttery, and you saw your person through rose-colored glasses? They could do no wrong. You were going to have the most beautiful life with big adventures and lots of sex. Of course, everyone says marriage is work, you knew that. But that was okay; you could get through anything together. It was going to be great.

    Until it wasn’t.

    Something happened. Or maybe nothing happened. Maybe it was one big something, or a lot of little somethings over many years that landed you in a marriage you hardly recognize. For Josh and Katie Walters, it was a big something: infidelity. Now they counsel couples who find themselves exactly where they were: lost, hopeless, and unsure of how to fix their marriage.

    This book lays out the principles Josh and Katie learned in that season when God healed and restored their marriage. This process is broken into four parts and is an acronym for the word STAY:

    *S–start with you. (Discovering that when one person changes, the entire relationship changes.)

    *T–take quitting off the table. (Bringing your whole self to the solution and not checking out mentally and emotionally.)

    *A–allow others to be a part of your journey. (Trusting the right people, in the right ways, at the right time.)

    *Y–yield to vision. (Looking past what is and imagining what could be.)

    New Marriage, Same Couple is a book about hope. It’s about how to create a brand-new marriage with your spouse, whether you’ve been married for a short time, or for decades.

  • 4 Relationship Styles

    $18.99

    Whether we know it or not, relationship styles cause some people to naturally thrive in relationships and others to struggle. According to attachment theory, we tend to experience love in predictable ways–some of which are healthy and some of which are not–based on our style and that of our partner.

    The good news is, whatever relationship style you have naturally, you’re not stuck with it! Using the strategies found in this book, you can:

    – identify your relationship style (and your partner’s)
    – understand the strengths and challenges of that style
    – overcome feelings of rejection and failed relationships
    – recognize the patterns and behaviors that are affecting your relationships
    – develop better ways to express and receive love

    If you’ve been caught in a cycle of unsatisfying relationships, discover how attachment theory can help you take the guesswork out of understanding why people behave the way they do–especially in times of stress–so you can find and sustain a love that lasts.

  • Merge For Marriage

    $16.99

    Marriage can be surprisingly difficult when you’re first starting out.

    Newly married couples face a tremendous challenge that is seldom talked about.

    *what it means to “merge” and the damaging effects of not dealing with differences early in a marriage;

    *the seven predictable areas of conflict;

    *a practical, powerful plan for dealing with differences with one’s partner; and

    *how to help another couple walk through the merge process.

    Full of practical stories, current research on connection and attachment, and enduring biblical principles, this book will help a couple learn how the different “merge points” in their marriage can actually strengthen their relationship so that they can enjoy a thriving marriage.

  • How To Put Love First

    $22.99

    Do you feel your relationships are lacking deep connections? Do you feel your time with God could be more rewarding? New York Times bestselling author Sadie Robertson Huff and her husband, Christian, invite you on a 90-day journey to embrace a life-giving relationship with God and experience authentic, healthy relationships with your people and your community.

    You are meant to be in relationships that bring joy and connection–that help you know soul-deep peace and leave you feeling loved instead of lonely. Instead, surface-level friendships, filtered social media feeds, unresolved conflicts, and unhealthy relationships can often seem to harm our self-worth, spiritual growth, and mental health–and keep us from the very relationships that could bring that true connection.

    How to Put Love First reminds you that prioritizing and deepening your love relationship with God is the key to growing healthy relationships in every area of life. Through personal stories of their own walks with God, their pitfalls and victories in relationships of all kinds, and biblical encouragement, Sadie and Christian will help you:

    *Find peace and connection in your relationship with God
    *Enjoy healthier, happier relationships with close friends and family
    *Learn how to resolve conflict, offer forgiveness, and endure loneliness
    *Reap the mental and spiritual health benefits of thriving in community

    As an added bonus, Dr. Josh Kirby, a psychologist and life coach, joins Sadie and Christian to speak into some of the key themes in the book to offer informed, practical counsel to further help you incorporate these important teachings into your life.

    If your relationships feel more frustrating than life-giving or if you feel like something deeply important is missing in your life, join Sadie and Christian on this 90-day challenge to discover the joy and freedom of being loved and loving well.

  • Real Good Life

    $29.99

    Where are you looking for joy, contentment, and purpose? Stevie and Sazan Hendrix show us that the good life we’re looking for won’t be found in our latest purchase, achievement, or dream vacation–it’s found by intentionally cultivating the simple, everyday moments that make up a real, good life.

    We say we want “the good life,” but that often leads us to constantly chase after the next thing, compare ourselves to others, and feel disconnected and unable to enjoy the good things that are right in front of us. Stevie and Sazan know what it’s like to search for the good life and, having achieved “success” at a young age, they know firsthand that the success we think we want isn’t what truly satisfies.

    Even as their careers and social media popularity grew, Stevie and Sazan were still searching for the good life, just like everyone else. What they discovered in that search completely changed how they lived their days–and by extension their lives. In A Real Good Life, you’ll join them on their journey

    *identifying how you can set yourself up for a good day by being intentional with all of your hours;

    *discovering your unique process for building faith and connection in yourself, your home, and your relationships;

    *rethinking your routines so you can establish life rhythms that are sustainable and unique;

    *recognizing that reflecting, focusing, gathering, and resting are crucial values; and

    *inspiring you to see life as a gift that should be cherished every single moment.

    Slow down and trade the endless cycle of striving and competing for real, good days filled with purposeful reflection, intentional focus, gathering with loved ones, and true rest.

  • Secrets Of Sex And Marriage

    $16.97

    Let’s Talk about Sex

    Most people are curious about sex and would love a few answers. “Are we normal?” “Why isn’t my spouse as interested in sex as I am?” “I don’t want to feel pressured, but don’t want to disappoint my spouse either–what do I do?” “How do we handle the impact of medication, menopause, porn, ED, pain . . . ?”

    Most importantly: “How can we get on the same page and create a thriving intimate life?”

    Sex is one of the most common marriage issues (for example, almost 80% of couples are mismatched in how often they want it), but it doesn’t have to be that way.

    Relationship researcher Shaunti Feldhahn and renowned sex therapist Dr. Michael Sytsma have identified eight simple, transformational factors to help you move from disconnection to delight. This is knowledge you can trust, based on vast clinical experience and their breakthrough research, including the largest nationally representative study ever conducted with married couples about sex. This book is not a “sex manual”; it is a fascinating, practical field guide that will help you intimately understand your spouse and create the marriage you’ve always wanted.

  • Why Marriage Counseling Fails

    $16.99

    Like life itself, marriage has moments of joy…and sorrow. As difficult as marriage can be, many who have said “I do” try to stick it out when problems arise because the alternative–being alone–is not very appealing. If the couple truly wants to save their marriage, they usually turn to counseling.

    Unfortunately, most marriage counseling ends with the couple dropping out and then, more often than not, ending their relationship. In some cases, the problem is not the couple but their choice of counselor. One who is poorly trained, disinterested, or obviously biased can destroy a marriage.

    Why Marriage Counseling Fails explores different scenarios that cause problems for couples as well as the different types of counselors who can help or harm a marriage. Dr. David B. Hawkins has more than forty-five years of experience as a marriage counselor and has helped thousands of couples save their marriages.

    “Sadly, when it comes to reaching out for help for marriage counseling, few have a sense of trust and confidence in their counselor,” he says. “Stories abound about how they came out of a counseling session worse than when they went in.”

    Dr. Hawkins defines the “five I’s” of a qualified marriage counselor as one who:

    *Offers wise instruction
    *Takes an active interest in the couple
    *Offers insight into why problems recur
    *Is willing to work intensively
    *Works in-depth to help the couple find long-term solutions

    Why Marriage Counseling Fails offers insights into marital issues, the brokenness of the counseling system, how to find good help, and how to insist upon effective help when turning to a counselor.

  • Lifetime Of Love

    $13.95

    If you ask legendary football coach Lou Holtz about his greatest accomplishment, he doesn’t talk about winning a national championship at the University of Notre Dame. Instead, he’s most proud of his fifty-nine-year marriage to Beth and raising their four successful children together.

    In A Lifetime of Love, Holtz offers couples young and old practical advice on marriage and parenting gleaned from his fifty-nine year marriage. He shares stories from he and Beth’s life away from the football field that reveal the couple’s deep faith in God and commitment to each other and their children.

    The Holtzes faced many challenges throughout their marriage: Lou’s coaching jobs meant he was often away from home and caused their family to move multiple times. Beth suffered a long battle with illness. Through it all their marriage–and family–remained strong because of the practical lessons they learned as they rode the ups and downs of life.

    In this inspiring story, you’ll find Lou and Beth’s powerful examples for successful marriage and parenting, including:

    *Find ways to connect daily.
    *Make sure your children feel loved and appreciated.
    *Be intentional about time together.
    *Learn from each other and accommodate one another’s needs.
    *Prioritize faith and prayer.

    The Holtzes intended to write this book together, but after Beth’s death Lou decided to celebrate his wife’s memory by completing the story of their life together. Their children–Luanne, Skip, Kevin, Elizabeth, and their spouses–also share memories of growing up in the Holtz family, adding their voices to the story of their parents’ love.

  • Standing Together : The Inspirational Story Of A Wounded Warrior And Enduri

    $17.99

    A true story of hope and courage in the face of astonishing challenges

    During his fourth deployment, US Marine Corps Sergeant Carlos Evans stepped on an IED–and the loss of both legs and his left hand was just the beginning of the struggle for his life.

    For the next two years, he and his wife, Rosemarie, went through the rehabilitation process together. As a nurse and mother of two young children, Rosemarie was used to caring for people, but the task of taking care of her triple-amputee husband brought new challenges every day. In addition to his limb loss, Carlos faced PTSD and developed an addiction to painkillers. He was sure Rosemarie’s life would be better without him–and that it might have been better if he hadn’t survived at all.

    But unlike the majority of marriages put under similar strain, Carlos and Rosemarie stayed together. With the help of family, friends, and–most importantly–a strong faith, they’ve built a solid marriage and discovered a ministry they never expected. By the hand of God, their story, which began in devastation, has turned into one that draws in and lifts up more people than either of them would ever have dreamed.

    Not only will disabled veterans and their loved ones find help here, Carlos and Rosemarie’s captivating journey also speaks to those who long for stronger marriages, care for loved ones with disabilities, or are facing a new normal in their own lives, small or large. It is a powerful resource for leaning on God in the midst of life’s great difficulties–and for finding ways that, through faith, profound loss can bring incredible blessing.
