$13.99
Amazing Grace for Fathers celebrates the power of fatherhood?and that power is love. The love of our fathers on earth reflects the infinite love of God, our heavenly Father, from which all fatherly guidance, discipline, and protection flows. The powerful stories in this book show just how deep a father's love is for his children, particularly when he lives in and is strengthened by God's grace. Here, you will find support and inspiration for your own fatherhood. In this book, you will meet: ? A young boy suffering intense pain who finds peace and comfort in the hands of his father. ? A loving father who literally comes back from the dead after suffering fatal injuries. ? A surrogate father who makes a big difference in the life of an angry and troubled boy. ? A father who provides a birthday present for his little girl after his death through a series of divine coincidences. ? A young man who heroically saves the life of another because of the wisdom handed down to him by his own father. ? Two fathers who, unable to provide for their families, turn to God and see His fatherly protection take care of them.

Man Virtues: What the Hell Am I Doing with My Life?

Man Virtues: What the Hell Am I Doing with My Life?
Lockwood, Robert P
$16.95

Robert P. Lockwood (you can call him Bob) has asked the same question you've asked dozens of times:

"What the hell am I doing with my life?"

Like you, he has wondered why he does what he does, and why it can be so hard to be the person he wants to be. In the end, it's about wanting happiness. Not three-beer happiness, I-got-a-raise happiness, or the-Steelers-made-the-playoffs happiness, but that quiet contentment that comes from living a good life.

What Matters Most: Empowering Young Catholics for Life's Big Decisions

What Matters Most: Empowering Young Catholics for Life's Big Decisions
Delorenzo, Leonard J
$16.95
What if we taught young people that they can measure success by how they follow Christ rather than by how much money they make or where they go to college?

In What Matters Most, University of Notre Dame theology professor Leonard J. DeLorenzo urges youth ministers, teachers, and parents to help young people redefine success in light of their call to discipleship--completely saying yes to God.

In Luke's account of the Annunciation, Mary offers a true model of discipleship for young people to follow. Her example will empower them to make choices about how to live their lives as a courageous yes to God in everything they choose--just as she did.

DeLorenzo, who served as the long-time director of Notre Dame Vision--a program designed to help young Catholics find their true calling as disciples of Jesus--shows how Mary exhibited four habits that will guide young people to make important life decisions:

  • Listen carefully and practice patience.
  • Remember who we are and what we value most.
  • Respond with compassion to choices we face.
  • Embrace sacrifice for the sake of love.

  • DeLorenzo includes personal stories from his experience as a father and working with youth and young adults with spiritual wisdom to equip teachers, mentors, pastoral ministers, and parents to reexamine the way they encourage and help form young Catholics approaching significant life choices such as college and jobs. He presents ways to remedy spiritual deficits in these young people created by cultural realities such as the fast pace of tech-driven lives and the looming pressure to succeed with worldly accomplishments.

    101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person: Helping Singles Find Each Other, Contemplate Marriage, and Say I Do

    101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person: Helping Singles Find Each Other, Contemplate Marriage, and Say I Do
    $13.95

    Are you confused about how to find your true love? Do you want to work on a current dating relationship, preparing it for engagement and marriage?

    Packed into 101 bite-sized suggestions, 101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person is the help you need to approach dating with confidence and joy, while at the same time helping you become the best, most marriage-ready version of yourself. Jennifer Roback Morse and Betsy Kerekes offer inspiration and advice for all stages of your relationship.

    With research conducted by the Ruth Institute and almost fifty years of marriage experience between them, authors Jennifer Roback Morse and Betsy Kerekes have compiled their best tips to inspire and support Catholic singles during all stages of dating and engagement. The life-changing ideas in 101 Tips for Marrying the Right Person offer short, practical suggestions that will help you find a mate and build a strong relationship.

    You'll find advice for meeting other Catholic singles, questions to ask yourself before getting too serious, and topics to talk about before engagement. Tips include:

  • When you're on the first date, or once you're in a relationship, see the other person for who they are. Avoid thinking you can change him or her; only God can do that.
  • Don't expect your significant other to be perfect when you know that you are not.
  • If you're interested in someone who isn't Catholic, have an open discussion about how you each expect faith to impact your relationship and potential marriage.
  • Morse and Kerekes clearly articulate the challenges that face single Catholics today. The hook-up and cohabitation culture is prevalent in our society and in the media, making the temptation to succumb strong. The authors want you to know that you aren't weak for being interested in these options, but you are strong enough to resist them. You can combat these challenges by recognizing single life and dating as ideal times to discern your own call to the vocation of marriage as well as your dating relationship's readiness for the sacrament.

    16 Marriages That Made History

    16 Marriages That Made History
    $13.95

    When we think of famous persons in history, we usually remember their great deeds in the areas of science, politics, art, etc. But for some, their greatest achievement in life was not played out before the public, but rather took place within the private sphere of their marriage. The world may remember them for their extraordinary gifts and accomplishments, but they, at the end of their lives, were most mindful of their greatest love: their spouse. This book honors the hidden love adventures of several famous persons in history. It offers concrete examples of marriages that transformed these well-known individuals in deep and personal ways. These are not fairy tales of marriages "made in heaven;" they are stories of real people with real struggles, who, through their marriage, were challenged, strengthened, and encouraged to grow in their capacity for love. In this book, you will learn: How marriages can grow stronger through time, how marriage can provide tremendous strength for facing life's difficulties, how people with very different personalities can be completely united in marriage, how one woman's selfless love saved her marriage, how a queen learned to put her husband and her marriage ahead of power, how one couple's united search for truth led them to embrace the Catholic Faith. This book will help to restore your confidence in the power of marriage. It is recommended for those just starting out on their marriage journey, as well as for those already well advanced along the path. Gerard Castillo is a professor of Education at the University of Navarra, Spain, where he teaches courses in education, marriage, and family. He is the author of over thirty books on these subjects.

    4 Seasons of Marriage

    4 Seasons of Marriage
    Chapman, Gary
    $15.99
    Spring, summer, winter, fall. Marriages are perpetually in a state of transition, continually moving from one season to another--perhaps not annually, as in nature, but just as certainly and consistently. Sometimes we find ourselves in winter--discouraged, detached, and dissatisfied; other times, we experience springtime with its openness, hope, and anticipation. On other occasions, we bask in the warmth of summer--comfortable, relaxed, enjoying life. And then comes fall with its uncertainty, negligence, and apprehension. The cycle repeats itself many times throughout the life of a marriage, just as the seasons repeat themselves in nature.

    The seasons of marriage come and go. Each one holds the potential for emotional health and happiness, and each one has its challenges. The purpose of this book is to describe these recurring seasons of marriage, help you and your spouse identify which season your marriage is in, and show you how to enhance your marriage in all four seasons.

    7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

    7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness
    $17.99

    In Seven Men, New York Times bestselling author Eric Metaxas presents seven exquisitely crafted portraits of widely known--but not well understood--Christian men, each of whom uniquely showcases a commitment to live by certain virtues in the truth of the gospel.

    Each of the seven men profiled--George Washington, William Wilberforce, Eric Liddell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Jackie Robinson, John Paul II, and Charles Colson--call us to a more elevated way of living, one that embodies the gospel in the world around us.

    All seven biographies represent the life of a man who experienced the struggles and challenges to be strong in the face of forces and circumstances that would have destroyed the resolve of lesser men.

    Seven Men asks and answers pressing questions, including:

  • What does it take to be a true exemplar as a father, brother, husband, leader, coach, counselor, change agent, and wise man?
  • What does it mean to stand for honesty, courage, and charity?
  • Written in a beautiful and engaging style, Seven Men addresses what it means to be a man today, at a time when media and popular culture present images of masculinity that are not the picture presented in Scripture and historic civil life--encouraging us to think critically, act honorably, and lead by example.

    Praise for Seven Men:

    This is a book to read, to read aloud to others, and then read again. In a day when children are growing up stunted because of our diet of empty-headed celebrities and contemptible villains, true heroism and manliness needs special nourishment. Eric Metaxas has done it again, and again we are in his debt.

    --Os Guinness, author of A Free People's Suicide

    What is true manhood? And what makes a man in our 21st century? These are vital questions that my friend Eric Metaxas helps us wrestle with in this great new book. In looking back to seven outstanding men of history, Eric helps us understand the essential elements of manhood in any age. This is a superb work--and I highly recommend it.

    Advice Worth Ignoring: How Tuning Out the Experts Can Make You a Better Parent

    Advice Worth Ignoring: How Tuning Out the Experts Can Make You a Better Parent
    Guarendi, Ray
    $15.99
    In Advice Worth Ignoring, Dr. Ray identifies fifty of the most common child-related truisms and parenting myths that can often mislead and undercut parents, and explains how the virtues of prudence, temperance and fortitude can help any parent discern the best course of action for his or her own family. Parents are encouraged to ask themselves: Does this have merit for our family, with our morals? Does it make sense? Does it align with wisdom confirmed through generations?

    Covering a range of ages and stages, from the early years ("It's a stage; it will pass") to the teenage years ("Don't make your child lie"), this book gives dedicated parents the tools they need to spot the hidden assumptions colored by pop psychology, and make parenting choices that are consistent with raising up good Catholic kids.

    Parents who read Advice Worth Ignoring will feel empowered to judge the advice that's right for their own family, regardless of who doles it out. Contains a special section specifically for adoptive parents.

    All Things New: Breaking the Cycle and Raising a Joyful Family

    All Things New: Breaking the Cycle and Raising a Joyful Family
    McCole Cupp, Erin
    $18.95

    It's time to break the cycle.

    Not every family is the perfect model of Catholic family life. Some of us approach parenting still wounded by childhood experiences that were less than ideal. When we start our own families, at best we feel a bit unprepared, and at worst we feel paralyzed with fear that we will repeat our parents' dysfunctional, abusive behaviors.

    In All Things New, Erin McCole Cupp draws on her own and others' experiences to discuss how to develop a joyful family life when our own experience of being parented was damaging. Erin wrote this book for moms and dads who want to parent better than they themselves were parented.

    Drawing on the Holy Family as the model of family life, and distilling practical lessons from the Two Greatest Commandments and the Beatitudes, All Things New shows readers that, while change isn't easy, God has given us all the ingredients we need to create a holy, joyful family.

    Every marriage hits rough spots. The question is, how will you face those challenges? Amazing Grace for Married Couples features stories of couples who faced what seemed like insurmountable challenges, but through the grace of God found the strength and love to become closer than ever before.

    In these pages, you will meet: 

    ● A husband and wife whose mutual infidelities threatened to tear their marriage apart. 

    ● A materialistic couple whose professional success could not fill the emptiness of their hearts. 

    ● A marriage that began lovingly but nearly ended in divorce as a result of a gambling addiction. 

    ● A husband whose addiction to pornography devastated his wife and family. 

    These powerful stories of redemption truly celebrate marriage as a covenant of God’s love. They will fill your heart with hope and give you the faith to persevere in times of difficulty. Experience the amazing renewal God can work in the lives of ordinary couples.

    Amazing Grace for Married Couples will deepen your commitment to marriage like no other book. This is a collection of inspiring stories about renewed relationships that were once on the brink of disaster. While most people would have written these couples off as hopelessly incompatible, through the grace of God, they overcame seemingly insurmountable obstacles. As a result, every couple is more in love today than they were on their wedding day. In this book, you will experience how God's grace healed: ? A marriage that began lovingly but quickly sputtered out when the young wife became addicted to gambling. ? A wife whose addiction to romance novels undermined her relationship with her family and led to much heartbreak. ? A man and wife who discovered they had both been unfaithful to each other. When their lack of trust in each other turned them into virtual strangers, divorce seemed the only option.

    At His Feet: Drawing Closer to Christ with the Women of the New Testament

    At His Feet: Drawing Closer to Christ with the Women of the New Testament
    Little, Derya
    $14.95

    Every one of us has some distance to go when it comes to our relationship with Christ. As twenty-first-century women, it often seems that the challenges of our modern lives make it even more difficult to live an authentic friendship with him. Thankfully, we have the lasting examples of women in the New Testament to show us how to draw close to Jesus, no matter what our circumstances might be.

    At His Feet is written for the woman who desires to rest in the peace of the Lord. This Bible study, specifically designed for women, helps us surrender to God's will and, in doing so, find the true freedom that only our Savior can offer. Like us, the New Testament women featured in this study knew what it meant to struggle with the burdens of life and with their own sinfulness. But when they encountered Jesus, their lives were changed forever.

    Like the women of the New Testament, we can bring Jesus our burdens and receive his healing, his love, and his grace. We, too, can experience the life-changing power of drawing close to him and resting in his love.

    Authenticity, Passion, and Advocacy

    Authenticity, Passion, and Advocacy
    Malewitz, Thomas E
    $24.00
    Adolescence can be best summarized as a time of authenticity, passion, and advocacy. As adolescents start maturing, on a life journey that leads them away from dependence on their parents to becoming an independent adult, they often seek out honest and transparent mentors to learn from and trust for wisdom and guidance. Although Thomas Merton, the celebrated spiritual author and Cistercian monk, is better remembered for his writings on ecumenism, nonviolence, and advocacy, he also had several documented correspondences with adolescents throughout his life. By examining these artifacts, it is clear that Thomas Merton had great insight into the spiritual needs and challenges of adolescents. Throughout his life, Merton's authentic struggles often parallel the searching nature that defines adolescent spirituality. Through scholarship and practice this book will explore how the life and writings of Thomas Merton may serve as a guide and bridge for ministers of adolescents, and will offer some practical suggestions for minsters, educators, and parents on topics affecting contemporary adolescents, through the lens of Thomas Merton's life and writings.

    Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn from Them

    Bad Girls of the Bible: And What We Can Learn from Them
    Higgs, Liz Curtis
    $17.00

    Ten of the Bible's best-known femmes fatales parade across the pages of this popular and unforgettable study with situations that sound oh-so-familiar.

    Women everywhere marvel at those "good girls" in Scripture-Sarah, Mary, Esther-but on most days, that's not who they see when they look in the mirror. Most women (if they're honest) see the selfishness of Sapphira or the deception of Delilah. They catch of glimpse of Jezebel's take-charge pride or Eve's disastrous disobedience. Like Bathsheba, Herodias, and the rest, today's modern woman is surrounded by temptations, exhausted by the demands of daily living, and burdened by her own desires.

    So what's a good girl to do? Learn from their lives, says beloved Bible study teacher and speaker Liz Curtis Higgs, and choose a better path. Whether they were "Bad to the Bone," "Bad for a Season, but Not Forever" or only "Bad for a Moment," these infamous sisters show women how not to handle the challenges of life.
    With her trademark humor and encouragement, Higgs combines a contemporary retelling of the stories of these "other women" in Scripture with a solid, verse-by-verse study to teach us how to avoid their tragic mistakes and joyfully embrace grace.
    Let these Bad Girls show you why studying the Bible has never been more fun!

    Be a Man!

    Be a Man!
    Richards, Larry
    $17.95

    Men are rediscovering the importance of the spiritual life. And Father Larry Richards is helping them do it. While some writers apply a one-size-fits-all approach to the Christian life, Father Richards draws on his many years of ministry and his own experience as a man to inspire other men as men.

    In Be a Man!, he recounts his struggles to learn true manhood, as well as the inspiring stories of others he has served in his decades as a priest. He tells men how to focus on the right goal, how to live as a beloved son of God, of the need to acknowledge one's faults and to live according to the Holy Spirit, to be a man of true love and of wisdom, to appreciate properly the differences between men and women, to pursue holiness, and to make a difference in the world. Not preachy but direct, Father Richards challenges men to be strong, without putting on a mask of false strength or machismo. He calls men to admit their weaknesses and limitations, while urging them to find strength in faith and genuine love to overcome their sins and faults.

    Although a celibate priest, he minces no words when it comes to the place of sexuality--for the unmarried man as well as for the married man. He shows that true manliness is not opposed to love but thrives on it. Father Richards stresses that a relationship with Christ reveals the meaning of a man's life and his identity as a man. He inspires men to become the true heroes they long to be--men of authentic courage, compassion and integrity. This is a highly readable book for men by a man who knows how to talk to men about the things that matter most.
