INTENTIONAL PARENTING

When I picked up the book Intentional Parenting, it was for a two fold purpose.   To learn, and to be affirmed.   As I read and absorbed and pondered, I did learn, and I was affirmed.   Parenting isn't just about the children, but about the parents too.  Three writers coming together, bringing with them their honesty, their invaluable experience as counselors, social workers and executive directors, and leaving the reader with 12 powerful attributes that go hand in hand with what it means to be intentional as parents and yes, as individuals.   Have you ever stopped to consider what parenting would do to you, in you and through you?
Homes and families don't just happen!  We must be INTENTIONAL!   To continue learning through all the stages of parenting, and even finding affirmation in the stages you've already walked through,  pick up your copy today.....and then pass it on to a friend (parent).

NEXT DOOR SAVIOR


The writings of Max Lucado, in his book, NEXT DOOR SAVIOR: Near Enough to Touch, Strong Enough to Trust,  are a combination of anecdotes and  true stories, both personal and scriptural, that bring to us "real life" and "relevant"  reminders of God's amazing nearness.   Chapter by chapter you will receive exhortation and blessing.  There is NO person He won't touch.  There is NO place He won't go.

If you long to grasp, even a little, and on a personal level, what it means when Paul writes,  "He who is at the right hand of God, also intercedes for us" (Romans 8:34), this book is for you.

The conclusion leaves a powerful summary (and one of my favorite lines), "Yes, he is in heaven.  Yes, he rules the universe.   But, yes, he has walked your streets.   He's still the next door Savior".   Go ahead, read it, touch him, trust him.
