Boy Mom: What Your Son Needs Most from You Audiobook

Boy Mom: What Your Son Needs Most from You

Author: Monica Swanson Narrator: Donna Allen, Monica Swanson Release Date: August 2019

This guidebook, packed with wisdom, practical advice, resources, and encouragement, explores how moms can equip their sons with what they most need to succeed in life. Monica Swanson knew she'd tapped a heartfelt concern when nearly two million readers shared her blog post 'What a Teenage Boy Needs Most from His Mom.' In this helpful book, she takes mothers deeper into the insights they need for the boy-raising journey, covering topics from dealing with the daily influences of friends and technology to helping a boy grow to be physically, spiritually, and emotionally healthy. She also addresses learning and finding passions, perspectives on relationships and dating, and work ethics and money management. Each chapter features relatable stories, handy checklists, and practical advice based on a combination of research, experience, and biblical truth to guide and equip a mom in helping her son achieve his God-given potential. Praise for Boy Mom "In Boy Mom Monica Swanson offers readers practical advice and resounding hope that parenting our sons well through all seasons is not only possible but also enjoyable. This book is like an essential trail guide that I'll refer to again and again in the beautiful and challenging adventure of motherhood."-Becky Keife, author of No Better Mom for the Job and mom of three spirited boys "Monica Swanson is the friend we all need in our lives: humble, straightforward, warm, full of wisdom, and short on nonsense-and she knows her stuff like no one else. In Boy Mom she holds the bar high yet is forthcoming about her own struggles and imperfections. Inside these pages you'll find deeply rooted biblical and practical advice along with calls to action when you don't know where to start. The Boy Mom Manifesto at the end will not only inspire you but also make your heart swell."-Kate Merrick, author of Here, Now: Unearthing Peace and Presence in an Overconnected World "Monica Swanson is the ultimate Boy Mom mentor. While her perspective on parenting is grounded in biblical wisdom, each chapter holds excellent practical tools for how to work out that wisdom on a daily basis in our homes. Of course, we know there aren't formulas that will ensure we get it all right, but we also know that gleaning wisdom from women who have gone before us (and are still in the trenches with us) is invaluable in the wonderful adventure of helping boys become all God created them to be."-Jeannie Cunnion, author of Mom Set Free

All Shall Be Well: Awakening to God's Presence in His Messy, Abundant World Audiobook

All Shall Be Well: Awakening to God's Presence in His Messy, Abundant World

Author: Catherine Mcniel Narrator: Lisa Larsen Release Date: August 2019

In All Shall Be Well, Catherine McNiel reflects on the sacred work of creation and redemption going on all around us-that we are often too busy and distracted to notice. This is a book about walking barefoot on dew-drenched grass, chatting with neighbors, caring for children and aging parents, and crunching through fallen leaves. It is a book about living life from its imperceptible beginnings through to its full vibrancy, and continuing courageously on toward certain decline. About accepting both the flower and the thorn, the gift and the loss. These natural, God-ordained cycles are the materials of the Creator and Redeemer. This is where He meets and makes us. And underneath it all is the life-changing reality that the cold death of winter is always made alive by spring. All Shall Be Well takes the message of creation and redemption out of stained glass cathedrals and textbooks and into our common experience of spring and summer, autumn and winter. Catherine intertwines reality with theology, awakening the listener to the truth of God declared all around us. Seamlessly weaving Bible passages into stories of real life, Catherine kindles belief in an unbelievable reality: that God does His creative, redemptive work in the mud and mortar of each mundane moment . . . and He is always, always making things new.

The Faith of Mike Pence Audiobook

The Faith of Mike Pence

Author: Leslie Montgomery Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: August 2019

Several books have been published about Vice President Mike Pence, but none have touched upon what may be the most fascinating aspect of our nation's second in command: his deep faith. The Faith of Mike Pence offers an intimate look at the man who calls himself 'a Christian, a conservative, and a Republican, in that order.' Author Leslie Montgomery details Pence's spiritual journey and examines how the vice president's commitment to Christ has been a key component in his life as a husband, father, and public servant. Montgomery examines Pence's encounters with politicos and evangelistic leaders such as James Dobson and Charles Lake. She shows the role of Pence's faith in running for various offices, implementing faith-based initiatives, and responding to 9/11, the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the infamous Anthrax scare in Congress that directly affected him. The Faith of Mike Pence is a powerful account of one of the most conservative vice presidents in American history, with exclusive interviews and insightful commentary from friends, family, and colleagues. It is a serious and moving reflection about one of America's most admired and respected politicians.

How Africa Shaped the Christian Mind: Rediscovering the African Seedbed of Western Christianity Audiobook

How Africa Shaped the Christian Mind: Rediscovering the African Seedbed of Western Christianity

Author: Dr. Thomas C. Oden, Ph.D. Narrator: Tom Parks Release Date: August 2019

Africa has played a decisive role in the formation of Christian culture from its infancy. Some of the most decisive intellectual achievements of Christianity were explored and understood in Africa before they were in Europe. If this is so, why is Christianity so often perceived in Africa as a Western colonial import? How can Christians in Northern and sub-Saharan Africa, indeed, how can Christians throughout the world, rediscover and learn from this ancient heritage? Theologian Thomas C. Oden offers a portrait that challenges prevailing notions of the intellectual development of Christianity from its early roots to its modern expressions. The pattern, he suggests, is not from north to south from Europe to Africa, but the other way around. He then makes an impassioned plea to uncover the hard data and study in depth the vital role that early African Christians played in developing the modern university, maturing Christian exegesis of Scripture, shaping early Christian dogma, modeling conciliar patterns of ecumenical decision-making, stimulating early monasticism, developing Neoplatonism, and refining rhetorical and dialectical skills.

The Honest Guide to Church Planting: What No One Ever Tells You about Planting and Leading a New Chu Audiobook

The Honest Guide to Church Planting: What No One Ever Tells You about Planting and Leading a New Chu

Author: Tom Bennardo Narrator: Gabe Wicks, Tom Bennardo Release Date: August 2019

Church planting has become a cottage industry. National conferences, hip planting organizations, and all-in-one resource kits celebrate the thrill of pioneering a church and inspire visions of glorious victories. Yet few who respond to the call are warned what they’ll actually encounter: the relentless opposition they’ll endure; the eventual scattering of their entire core group; the failure of their tried-and-true, field-tested system. Here’s the dirty little secret of church planting: the roadside is strewn with casualties. Many have closed their churches. Some left ministry permanently. Others abandoned the faith altogether. Church planting is at once the greatest and most grueling ministry work on earth. This audiobook is for those toiling in the trenches, those about to bail out, and those considering jumping in. It’s for the church planters laboring and struggling, seeing little movement, and wondering what they’re doing wrong or why God is failing them. It’s also for mother churches, planting organizations, and denominations, as a challenge to rethink and re-calibrate the way they approach and measure planting endeavors. The Honest Guide to Church Planting is a fresh and candid conversation about the challenges and joys of planting new churches. Tom Bennardo speaks the truth so that those involved in church planting can embrace a more accurate and realistic picture of what planting a church is really like; one that not only enables them to survive, but to thrive in this wondrous work.

When God Stops: Faith that Gets God's Attention Audiobook

When God Stops: Faith that Gets God's Attention

Author: Derek Grier Narrator: Derek Grier, Justin Henry Release Date: August 2019

What Does It Take to Grab God’s Attention? When God Stops shares the key to living a life that honors the Lord and jumpstarts your faith. Dr. Derek Grier dissects the extraordinary God-encounters of eight ordinary men and women in the Bible and reveals them as “hidden figures” of the New Testament. The retelling of the biblical accounts from a new perspective will uncover the answer to the age-old question: What makes God stop and pay attention? The answer is faith. Whether it was a man with leprosy, a sick child, or a short tax collector sitting in a tree, they all had one thing in common—a burning desire to get God’s attention. Dr. Grier adds to the narrative by sharing the details of his personal pilgrimage. Growing up angry at God and looking for an identity, Grier eventually attended college and found the kind of faith that made him feel loved and centered for the first time in his life. Each chapter includes insightful verse-by-verse biblical teaching, compelling personal testimony, and a section of practical application. A discussion guide is available in the audiobook companion PDF download. ***Please contact Customer Service for additional content.***

Blessed Broken Given: How Your Story Becomes Sacred in the Hands of Jesus Audiobook

Blessed Broken Given: How Your Story Becomes Sacred in the Hands of Jesus

Author: Glenn Packiam Narrator: Glenn Packiam Release Date: August 2019

An invitation to find beauty and meaning in the ordinary and imperfect aspects of your life; not as a call to settle for less, but rather as a way to mysteriously participate in God's power and purpose. Glenn Packiam wants to empower readers to find great joy, purpose, and passion in their daily living. While bread may be one of the most common items on our dinner tables, Jesus chose to take it at the Last Supper and invest deep, wonderful, and transcendent meaning in it. Like the bread that was blessed, broken, and given; readers will see how God uses ordinary experiences to cultivate their mission and their brokenness to bring healing to the world. The ordinary is not the enemy; it is the means by which God accomplishes the miraculous. Through clear biblical teaching and practical steps, Packiam leads the reader into a more purposeful, directed, hopeful future.

Friend-ish: Reclaiming Real Friendship in a Culture of Confusion Audiobook

Friend-ish: Reclaiming Real Friendship in a Culture of Confusion

Author: Kelly Needham Narrator: Kelly Needham Release Date: August 2019

Bible teacher Kelly Needham debunks our world's constricted, small view of friendship and casts a richer, more life-giving, biblical vision for friendship as God meant it to be. As the family unit grows more unstable and the average age of marriage increases, a shift is taking place in our culture: for many people, friends now play the role of family. And just as with family relationships, our friendships often don't turn out quite as we envisioned or hoped, and we wonder, Is there a better way to do this? In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham takes a close look at what Scripture says about friendship. She reveals the distorted view most of us have of it and recasts a glorious vision for a Christian understanding. By teaching us how to recognize symptoms of idolatry and dependency, she equips us to understand and address the problems that arise in friendship--from neediness to discord and even sexual temptation. With hard-fought wisdom, a clear view of Scripture, and been-there perspective, Needham reorients us toward the purposeful, loving relationships we all crave that ultimately bring us closer to God.
