Ten Reasons Not to Take Your Own Life (fold-out brochure)

Ten Reasons Not to Take Your Own Life (fold-out brochure)

The suicide rate in the United States has increased almost fifty percent in the last twenty years. Why should we be concerned? Because every life, no matter how often or strongly one suffers with mental health issues, is valuable. Unfortunately, no one escapes suffering and sorrow. Anxiety, embarrassment, guilt, grief, loneliness, and even self-loathing can be powerful enough to drive one to despair ... But the Heavenly Father is at hand. And a Gracious Savior is at work. God sees, and Jesus knows.

Biblical Manhood – What Difference Does It Make?

Biblical Manhood – What Difference Does It Make?

This author writes, “Can Christians say that while men and women are truly of equal value, they are fundamentally different? Can we say that men have peculiar roles and duties as men, roles and duties that women cannot fulfill? Can we say that men are made so differently from women—generally—if not universally; and not just physically but temperamentally and emotionally—that it is actually an offense to God to confuse the roles of men and women? I believe Christians must answer ‘Yes’ to these questions if we are to even bother trying to define biblical manhood.”

Ministering to the Victims of Alzheimer’s Disease and Their Families

Many are tempted to feel that it is a waste of time. We have all doubtlessly experienced the frustration of calling on an Alzheimer’s victim, or victim of other forms of dementia, and leaving again wondering if we had reached them at all, or perhaps wondering how we can better succeed in reaching the victim of this sad disease. It is a critical time for ministry.

Psalm 23 for Grandparents

Psalm 23 for Grandparents

Most of us reading this book have already lived a life filled with experiences, and since we are seasoned parents, we are generally confident about how to raise a child. Most of us can give advice about the ins and outs of basic parenting, even if there are new generational things to explore and learn. For example, we may find ourselves in debate over cloth or disposable diapers, but we are confident that some type of diaper is needed. But now we are entering unchartered waters. We have a new occupation; we are grandparents! We no longer make the decisions or have the final say for the child that may or may not share our name; we are the support staff for a family we love.

Charitable Conversation: 8 Tips for Redirecting a Hostile Discussion (fold-out brochure)

We've all at least seen a video of this. Maybe you have experienced it firsthand. You're tabling on a campus, looking to have productive dialogue about abortion. A pro-choice person marches up and starts loudly accusing you of trying to control women, telling you that women need choices or that a fetus is just a clump of cells. You make one remark in response, and it's met immediately with another stream of objections. As intimidating as this can be, what we don't want to do is shut off the conversation. We want every person to see the value of human life, even the person who seems very uninterested in hearing about it. So what can we do to help the encounter move from a battle of smart remarks to a productive dialogue about the issue of abortion?

Christian Sexuality - A Five Session Small Group Study

Christian Sexuality - A Five Session Small Group Study

This Bible study is designed to be a small step toward a holistic treatment of Christian sexuality. For the theologians and pastors who spend years studying the things of God, the underlying theological connections between marriage, procreation, and life issues are obvious. This is not necessarily the case for the typical congregant. This Bible study aims to tie together the usually disparate themes of Christian sexuality into a cohesive structure not defined by sinful practices. The goal of the study is to provide at the lay level a theoretical yet practical basis for understanding sexuality. This focus on the “positive” side of sexuality will inevitably frustrate those seeking guidance for the particular sexual challenges of today, but there are many wonderful resources already available to that end. This study seeks to do something different.

Christian Life for Christian Women

Christian Life for Christian Women

A Christian woman who would like to know the position and purpose of her place in life should start at the beginning … the very beginning! A lady’s place in God’s creation was set for her. We didn’t get to choose our own space, but this is no injustice. It’s simply what it means to be created. The fact that we have life is a gift. The fact that this life was designed with significance, purpose, and love for the good of all creation is another gift! Creatures don’t get to pick how they’re made. They’re not around to make those decisions. They only exist AFTER they’re made. So, all of the details that go into the “who” and the “why” of each person on the planet will always be up to the Creator. Let’s think about what it means, then, to know our place. And once we know our place, we can think about how we might enjoy it with thankfulness to the One who made it for us. Throughout this short booklet, let’s not lose sight of this: The place for the first lady was designed thoughtfully and with great significance and deep love. It was not an accident. It was not a mistake. There was specific, meaningful purpose infused in every fiber of womankind’s created self. The first lady to occupy the woman’s place in creation was named Eve. This first lady received her place, rejected it, and was restored to it by grace. We can relate! We’re related, after all.

Is love really all it’s cracked up to be? The simple answer is, YES! God desires to give His people love, and one of the ways He provides the blessing of love is through marriage. But how do we know when we’ve found real love? How do we show real love to our spouse? How do we love as God intended? First, we need to know what real love looks like, what it is and what it isn’t.

The Real Comprehensive Behind Sex Ed

The Real Comprehensive Behind Sex Ed

“At the core of the biblical mindset on sex, we find the true source of nourishment from which all behaviors derive: God’s value of every human life. This value is what captivates and empowers the way we approach human sexuality ourselves and how we teach it to others. When we comprehend the immeasurable love of God for us, His most priceless possessions, it changes a person’s very sense of self and worth … “Biblical sexual integrity comes from being taught biblical integrity. Biblical integrity comes from knowing and receiving Jesus over and over and over. And what’s more, when they fail, when we fail, it’s not all over for us! God’s grace, all we receive in Jesus, is sufficient for every hard lesson we go through in this life. It’s our stories and experiences that open the doors to deeper connections and allow us to relate to others around us, all for the purpose of turning our eyes to Him Who creates a clean heart in each of us! So, what is the real “comprehensive” behind comprehensive sex ed? That you matter. You’ve always mattered. And Jesus is the proof.”

Abortion and the Message of the Church: Sin or Salvation?

Abortion and the Message of the Church: Sin or Salvation?

Shalom means ‘peace’ and, despite the emotional challenges portrayed, this story ends with the mother of Baby Shalom resting in God’s peace. May it be so also for you, dear reader, no matter what tragedies befall you.”

As we celebrate the Reformation’s quincentennial, listening to him can still enlighten us. His view of family matters proved revolutionary in its time. Luther promoted marriage, encouraged childbearing, and praised parenting. He concluded even unborn babies qualified as full-fledged human beings.
