The Big Picture and a Simple Plan: That’s what you need to do family discipleship well.
There are literally thousands of books available on how to live various aspects of the Christian life. Of these, at least a couple of dozen pertaining to family life and child training are well worth reading.
This is not one of those books.
This book is designed to help you take what you have read, as well as all the sermons, teachings, and exhortations you have received on child training and leadership in the home, and make sense of it.
Pastor Tad Thompson has assembled a biblical approach to effective family discipleship. Among other insights in this book, he identifies seven key areas of parental focus:
• The Gospel
• The Big Story (Biblical Theology)
• The Big Truths (Systematic Theology)
• The Great Commission
• Spiritual Disciplines
• Christian Living
By identifying the right ingredients for family discipleship, and by providing guidelines for creating your own plan of implementation, Intentional Parenting can prepare you
for a lifetime of learning and teaching.
This is not another book of tactics and techniques. It is a clear, encouraging, accessible book of strategy for parents who want to be intentional about discipleship in the home.

Promises kept and promises broken.
When Ella Jamison’s father gets in trouble with the law, he offers up his only daughter to get the Texas ranger on his trail to look the other way. Fear over what might become of her father if arrested obligates Ella to go along with his plan.
Isaiah Hayes doesn’t accept bribes, but his concern for Miss Jamison, should he leave her to Mr. Jamison’s abuse, compels Isaiah to accept the offer. While investigating the Christmas Eve hangings and Christmas Day Massacre, Isaiah tries to make Ella comfortable in his meager dwelling.
Ella battles her fears as she tries to adjust to a new home with a man she fears, almost as much as the father who gave her away. Promises are made to broken, aren’t they?
This classic Puritan treatise by John Owen shows the inconsistencies of the Arminian perspective as they cannot be squared with Scripture.
Our present greatest need is revival.
David Matthews was one of the participants of the Welsh revival, and I Saw the Welsh Revival is his personal impression of the 1904 revival in Wales. First published by Moody Press, it is published again to recall the might days of a century ago when revival fire spread throughout the principality of Wales and beyond.
I Saw the Welsh Revival will stimulate preachers and churches and encourage spiritually-minded people to continue in prayer for a modern-day outpouring of the Holy Spirit in revival power.
The Christmas season is a particularly difficult time for women to slow down and relish what’s right in front of them. An annual marker for many, it is a holiday that can often remind us how life is not going as we’d planned. Our family relationships remain strained, our finances stretched, and our schedules stuffed with too much to do in too little time.
Following the formula of her successful Loving My Actual Life, Alexandra Kuykendall shares with readers her own personal experiment to be completely present in her life as it is during the holiday season. Addressing the themes of Advent and Christmas, she reflects on hope, love, joy, peace, and relishing the season, with practical pullouts on common Christmas stressors, such as finances, schedules, and extended family. Kuykendall’s signature candor helps women go easy on themselves, remember what truly matters, and find joy in their imperfect Christmases.
