All around help

The Bible
We believe that the Bible is the best resource for life.  It is God's Word given to people to write through the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.  If you study the Bible, you will find that it has power for living!  It is unlike any other book in existence.  Bible translations we have found especially meaningful include the New International Version (NIV); The New American Standard Bible (NASB),  the New King James Version (NKJV), the King James Version (KJV) and the Revised Standard Version (RSV).

Choosing to Wait: A Guide to Inspiring Abstinence by Luara Gallier
More than 40% of high school students are sexually active - what can be done? This book goes beyond boundary setting, and instead empowers parents to cultivate convictions in their children so they are prepared to stand strong when faced with temptation. While other publications focus on modifying a child's behavior, this book gives parents the power to ignite lasting character transformation in their kids. Parents are equipped to effectively convey truths through a healthy discipleship connection. Author and mother of three Laura Gallier focuses on three critical areas: Preparation, Application, Motivation. She guides parents and children into a biblical understanding of the purposes and sacredness of sex within marriage as well as the realities of sexual sin. She also provides practical tools to assist parents in this sometimes awkward (but very crucial) life issue. Arm your kids today with emotional, spiritual, and physical ammunition that will keep them from making the wrong choice.

Will I cry tomorrow?: Healing Post-Abortion Trauma By Susan Stanford-Rue, Ph.D.
Many of the women who abort their babies later suffer from consuming guilt and depression. Others continue to live in denial, yet are unable to completely shut out the feelings and memories.  This book is Susan's poignant story of her own abortion experience.  She writes knowingly about God's unconditional, forgiving love, which led to her remarkable, long-term healing.  She offers hope to women who have had abortions, and helps counselors understand their pain. By proving that women as well as infants are the victims of abortions, this timely, evocative book guides readers in reaching out with compassion and insight.  (book only available through Dr. Stanford-Rue's office at 904-292-0085 (USA))

Worship

The Unquenchable Worshipper: Coming Back to the Heart of Worship by Matt Redman
"The Unquenchable Worshiper issues a passionate call for a return to an unadulterated, first-love lifestyle of worship. In his first book release, respected worship leader and songwriter Matt Redman writes: "The revelation of God is the fuel for the fire of our worship. And there is always more fuel for the fire. When we open the eyes of our heart, God's revelation comes flying at us from so many different angles." Open the eyes of your heart and let the gut-level message of The Unquenchable Worshiper cause you, like martyred missionary Jim Elliot, to say, "Saturate me with the oil of Thy Spirit, that I may be aflame. Make me Thy fuel O flame of God."
