Author of Grace-Based Parenting and the best-selling Little House on the Freeway, Dr. Tim Kimmel helps Christian parents avoid the potential problems their well-meaning parenting styles could create. This book offers a new way to look at the "ideal" Christian home and shows why "cocoon-style" Christian homes don't always work. Many parents have "done it all" when it comes to the checklist of good Christian parenting, only to see their son or daughter step away from their belief system and embrace other lifestyle choices. Dr. Kimmel helps to increase the chances that your children will develop a vibrant faith early in life and stick with it on into adulthood. It will also provide help and hope for those already dealing with a rebellious teen and teach them how to lead the child back into a walk of faith.

Parent of An Adult Addict offers priceless insight into what one Christian family experienced the night their daughter was found unconscious in their basement from an overdose of heroin. Exploring the questions which most often press parents of addicts, Arlene Boehnlein-Rice shares hard earned wisdom and education on the signs and symptoms a parent needs to know to spot suspected drug abuse by their child, resources for finding support, practical approaches in dealing with your child, and encouragement to know you are not alone on this road. Once Arlene Boehnlein-Rice began to share her story, phone calls and emails began to stream in from other parents asking questions of how to get help, what to do, and what not to do for their heroin addicted adult child. Even though their daughter survived her overdose Arlene Boehnlein-Rice and her husband Keith's story continues by leaving you with a parent's worst nightmare. The powerful tragic ending leads to a family's faith being tested to its very core. The author, a seminary graduate, reveals lessons she has learned along this difficult trail of being a parent of an addict. But rather than turning from her faith or abandoning the God she'd depended upon, Arlene eventually finds a deeper hope and a renewed faith to continue to persevere no matter her child's outcome. As you read this grievous yet compelling account, you will find direction for the next step and encouragement after life's difficulties. Whether you are new to the journey or a seasoned sojourner on this trajectory as a parent of an addict, you will find guidance and inspiration in this heart-wrenching real life story.

For most people who seek to create — whether they are artists, writers, or businesspeople — the daily task of immersing themselves in their creative work is both a joy and a profound challenge. Instead of stepping easily into the creative state, they succumb to chronic procrastination and torturous distraction. In Standing at Water’s Edge, psychologist Anne Paris calls on her extensive experience in working with creative clients to explore the deep psychological fears that block us from creative immersion. Employing cutting-edge theory and research, Paris weaves a new understanding of the artist during the creative process. Rather than presenting the creation of art as a lonely, solitary endeavor, she shows how relationships with others are actually crucial to creativity. Shining a light on the innermost experience of the artist as he or she engages with others, the artwork, and the audience, Paris explores how our sense of connection with others can aid or inhibit creative immersion. She reveals a unique model of “mirrors, heroes, and twins” to explore the key relationships that support creativity. Paris’s groundbreaking psychological approach gives artists valuable new insight into their own creative process, allowing them to unlock their potential and finish their greatest projects.

But what can we really do to protect our kids? You Can Lead Your Family Out of Fear and Into Effective, Godly Living. Scripture tells us that centuries ago, Daniel and his friends also faced a hostile world.

It has long been said that once kids are in high school and college, they are beyond the influence of their parents. This pervasive cultural myth is not supported by research, biblical teaching, or even anecdotal accounts. Yet because of it, many Christian parents live in silent angst about the faith of their older and adult children, thinking they can no longer do anything to shape their kids' spiritual and life decisions. Drawing on sociological research and Scripture, Dan Dupee shows parents that it is not too late--and in fact these turbulent years of transitioning into adulthood are a time when their kids may need their guidance the most. He shows parents how to make the most out of the opportunities they have to offer guidance, wisdom, and spiritual support, with the goal of seeing their children not just survive college with faith intact but enter adulthood with a faith of their own--one that will carry them through all that life brings their way.

On August 1, 1983, Laurel Greshel's world changed forever after a phone call from her doctor. After receiving word that her unborn baby had serious health issues, Laurel was overwhelmed. As she and her husband, Ted, struggled to accept the diagnosis that their daughter, Amanda, would be born with spina bifida, they had to slowly learn to say goodbye to "normal" and embrace each of their tiny newborn's accomplishments. Without any instruction book on how to raise a child with spina bifida, Laurel and Ted must learn to survive countless medical issues and several near-death scares with Amanda by leaning on their faith in God. As Laurel candidly shares experiences-both good and bad-that she has with doctors, nurses, teachers, family members, and friends, she offers a heartfelt glimpse into her painful struggles as she gives entirely of herself to help Amanda grow to her full potential. With the help of God's steady hand, Laurel manages to raise two other daughters, nurture her marriage, and cope with all the ups and downs of caring for a medically challenged child. In this poignant memoir, one mother describes her unforgettable journey through her daughter's difficulties, revealing the important message that God creates all of us just the way He wants us- perfectly made.

“I believe God will use Karen’s story mightily to transform broken lives and to help the rest of us realize how truly blessed we are not to have suffered as Karen did.” - Carole Lewis First Place 4 Health National Director “What a touching triumph over a difficult childhood. Karen’s raw and honest voice immediately draws us into her life. What a tribute to her inner strength to acknowledge her past and use it as a tool to help others who have also been victims of childhood abuse and neglect.” - Ruthanne Mefford Director, Child Advocates of Fort Bend It begins with Karen’s reality: Bad as home was, I always wanted to go back there, ‘cause I belonged! “Home” is an isolated Appalachian barn where poverty, neglect, and abuse go unseen until the children (twelve) reach school age. At age five and deathly ill from parasites, Karen watches from the welfare agents’ back seat as her hysterical mom’s image gets smaller while the car speeds away. Terrified, yet determined, she remembers their route; she will get back home. Orphanage memories are horrific, but she thanks God for tricycles and popsicles (her first). Gossip has it the town prostitutes ratted on the family’s health. Moving from hating these women to seeing how God uses them to protect the kids is the beginning of Karen’s faith. Running from welfare, moving constantly, Karen knows she’s the dirtiest, poorest kid in school. Scenarios change, but chaotic, frightening themes of fear, hunger, abuse and peer ridicule repeat. Then, at age sixteen, Karen senses hope when she marries Terry and prepares her first home, a $4000 trailer, for their child. Could this be stability? If only! Hard work, little pay, parenting and marriage stresses become overwhelming. Acts of ministry from Karen’s home church sustain her until a new devastating challenge surfaces: providing for her children, extended family, and husband, Terry, who now has a life-threatening illness. Can she manage this trial? Can she preserve?
