Ablaze: stories of Daring Teen Saints

$14.99

Following Christ isn't always easy. You need faith, courage, patience, and love.

Colleen Swaim looks at eight young souls who became saints for the against-the-current, selfless heroism of their teen years. In addition to the inspiring stories, Ablaze includes maps, recipes, prayers, journal prompts, scripture references and reflection questions to help the reader apply the saints' experiences to every day life.

Read how an Italian high school student inspired thousands as she faced cancer joyfully. Follow a new Christian as he marches to his death by fire after standing firm in his faith in the face of a wretched king. Lock arms with a young man and his crucifix as he dares brawling teens to throw the first stone.

We are all called to follow Christ in our own ways. This book will inflame your heart with vivid storytelling, saintly challenges, prayers, images, and more. Discover how you can set your world ablaze with love for the Lord!

Features: Saint Dominic Savio; Saint Teresa of the Andes; Saint Kizito; Blessed Chiara Luce Badano; Saint Stanislaus Kostka; Saint Alphonsa of the Immaculate Conception; Blessed Pedro Calungsod; and Saint Maria Goretti.

Review by Lisa M. Hendey, CatholicMom.com webmaster:

If you're a mom of teens like me, you're constantly on the lookout for books and resources that will help inspire your family. With this new book by Colleen Swaim -- her first, but hopefully just the start of a prolific writing career -- we discover a treasure of the faith for Catholics young and old.

Ablaze is aimed at teens, but truthfully, the resources contained within this book will aid anyone looking to grow in sanctity and faith. Colleen profiles the lives of eight young saints and blesseds, sharing their path to sainthood with accounts that are filled with insight and detail. She has a voice that truly manages to bring these stories to life. Perhaps it's her work as a high school teacher that has provided her with an insight into what will move, challenge and inspire young people. Ablaze is filled with so much more than simply biographical details, including sidebars, vocabulary descriptions, maps, sacramental lessons, and even recipes. Journal prompts, prayers, scripture references and reflection questions help the reader to fully interact with the content presented, applying it to the challenges of every day life.

Each of the saints profiled, though living in different periods of history, has a freshness and a relevance to the world our teens face today. Colleen Swaim aptly brings their heroic virtues to light in a way that will have teens (and grown ups too!), eagerly interacting with her content and asking for more. I give Ablaze my highest recommendation and will enjoy sharing it with my own son this summer.

This book has proven to be a key component in getting many people; parents, teens, priests, religious educators, men and women of all ages excited about the true meaning of Confirmation as Knighthood in the Kingdom of God.

This is an excellent tool for evangelization for both your family and your friends. Get your copy right now and begin to raise up and strengthen the Soldier of Christ in your life. Look What Others Are Saying Who Have Read It. "Finally, a book that unlocks the power of confirmation in a practical, life-transforming way! In an era when confirmation is not well-understood by many Catholics, "Called to Knighthood..." is an excellent resource for parents, priests and catechists who want to make this sacrament come powerfully alive for young people and adults preparing to be confrimed..." (Edward Sri, STD, Provost & Professor of Scripture &Theology) The Catholic Church tells us Confirmation is the sacrament that empowers us "to spread and defend the faith by word and action as true witnesses" (CCC 1303) which is why every Christian's job description is to be nothing less than a soldier of Christ. Tom Sullivan writes like a drill instructor preparing recruits to fght and win the battles of everyday life, and to engage in the spiritual warfare that makes us saints. Here is an inspiring summary of 2000 years of basic training from Scripture, the early Fathers, and the Church's official teaching.

Cross and the Switchblade

$7.99
The dramatic and inspiring true story of a small town minister called to help inner city kids everyone else believed were beyond hope...

David Wilkerson was just a young preacher in the Pennsylvania hills when he was stunned by a new calling from God: go to New York City to speak to seven young gang members on trial for murder.

But something much greater was to come. Once in New York, David was inspired to stay for a lifetime of helping troubled teenagers get free of drugs and crime. With the word of God in his ears, he founded an inner-city ministry still known as the Teen Challenge to change their paths and alter thousands of lives forever.

Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

$14.99
A generation stands on the brink of a "rebelution."

"Most people don't expect you to understand what we're going to tell you in this book. And even if you understand, they don't expect you to care. And even if you care, they don't expect you to do anything about it. And even if you do something about it, they don't expect it to last. We do." - Alex and Brett

Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.

Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life. Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.

Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of an already-happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Now includes:
-- A new introduction from the authors, "Looking Back, Looking Ahead"
-- Questions (and Stories) To Get You Started
-- A list of 100 Hard Things to help inspire you
-- A study guide for personal or group use
