  • More To The Story

    $16.99

    What does the Bible really say about identity and gender, dating and sex? Are its teachings out of date and repressive? Or are they the way to joy and contentment?

    Long-time youth worker Jennifer Kvamme knows teens are grappling with these questions. In this book she helps readers cut through the cultural confusion and find answers to questions like:

    *why does God care what I do with my body (if I’m not hurting anyone)?
    *why does it matter what pronouns I use?
    *why is sex “good” in marriage but “bad” before it? Isn’t love love?
    *is the Bible really against gay marriage?

    Rather than listing dos and don’ts, this book looks at the whole story of God’s love for us to give readers an essential backdrop for the Bible’s teachings on sexuality. It will help you navigate wisely complex issues around dating, sex and gender. You’ll not only learn how to honor Jesus in this area of life, but why he can be trusted to bring the kind of lasting joy and contentment that “sexual freedom” can’t. You’ll discover there’s hope even if your experience of sexuality has been painful, complicated or filled with shame.

    Each chapter includes reflection questions to help you think through these issues and apply them to your own life, as well as a discussion guide for youth groups.

    You will be encouraged to trust Jesus with your deepest desires as you follow him in all of life, including your sexuality and relationships.

  • Ready Or Knot Prayer Guide

    $19.99

    Who you choose to marry is one of the most important decisions of your life. This decision affects everything that will happen to you from that point forward. So how much have you and your significant other prayed together about your shared life to come?

    The best time to start praying for your marriage is before you say, “I do.” This devotional guide helps you learn how to pray together for twelve specific areas of your relationship, including:

    * the purpose of marriage
    * communication and conflict
    * spiritual, emotional, and sexual intimacy
    * understanding your roles and your differences
    * friendship and romance
    * money
    * parenting
    * and more

    It may sound like a cliche when you hear the old adage that “couples who pray together stay together,” but the reality is that the divorce rate for couples who pray together, out loud, on a consistent basis is less than one percent. Prayer is key to a strong and lasting relationship. The Ready or Knot Prayer Guide shows you how to develop a lifelong habit to sustain a lifelong marriage.

  • Christ Centered Dating

    $17.99

    What if glorifying God and pursuing marriage could happen at the same time?

    Christian singles are often taught that the best way to find “the one” is to glorify God and let him take care of the rest. What if, instead, singles glorified God through their pursuit of marriage?

    In Christ-Centered Dating, popular YouTuber Mark Ballenger challenges each reader to understand the difference between seeking to glorify God for the blessing of a spouse and seeking a spouse for the glory of God. With personal stories, biblical guidance, and real-life application, Mark helps readers understand:

    *Why their beliefs about dating are so crucial to their spiritual lives.
    *How to meet other godly singles.
    *What the eight phases of a healthy dating relationship should be.
    *How to heal from past relationship wounds and idols.
    *Whether or not there is such a thing as “the one.”

    God wants His people to discover the freedom of choosing to put Him first in their relationships. Christ-Centered Dating helps the single Christian reflect His image while actively seeking the person God has chosen as his or her spouse.

  • Gen SeXYZ : Love, Sexuality And Youth

    $15.99

    “Corrupt the young. Get them away from religion. Encourage their interest in sex….”-Vladimir Lenin, 1921, How to Destroy the West

    Going through each of the prophetic statements made by Lenin in 1921 shows why America is where it is today. Only 4 percent of Gen Z think about life through a biblical lens. To them, sexuality is more important than friends, family, or their faith.

    Jeff Grenell’s goal in Gen SeXYZ: Love, Sexuality & Youth is to reach youth, youth leaders, and the church with a message that kicks the devil to the curb and restores sexuality to its God-given origins.

    When the church failed to respond to the sexual revolution of the 1960s and the present one of the 21st century, its role in society crumbled. The media stopped censoring, the government redefined marriage, schools taught progressive sex education, and the list of genders grew. We’ve experienced generational loss because we’ve gotten further away from the source of our original knowledge of sexuality: the Bible.

    Jeff points out that our understanding of sexuality must be anchored to the fact that God is love and the devil stole sex. He provides direct quotations from teenagers and leaders, practical knowledge, and tools to launch a spiritual revolution of love and truth that will grow the church to reach younger generations and combat the loveless, godless sexuality ethic in our culture that’s misleading them.

  • Single Dating Engaged Married

    $18.99

    Navigating the Four Critical Seasons of Relationship

    The vast majority of young people will still pass through the key phases of singleness, dating, engagement and marriage in their twenties. Yet they are delaying marriage longer than any generation in human history. Why?

    For the first time in history, the average age for an American woman having her first child, 26, is younger than the average age of her first marriage, 27. More children than ever are growing up in fatherless homes, despite the overwhelming evidence that in every measurable way this is bad for the child. The Center for Disease Control also recently reported a dramatic rise in sexually transmitted disease nationwide. In Rhode Island alone, since the onset of online dating, reported cases of Syphilis has risen 79%, and HIV has increased by 33%. Though many young people can avoid early pregnancy and STDS, most cannot dodge the depression and feelings of isolation that characterize this modern generation. Studies show a dramatic rise in self-reported loneliness among the young. All of our technological connectivity has not made us feel more connected. In many ways, the very screens that are meant to link us to others have become shields blocking us from the deep intimacy we crave. Many have discovered that where there is a lack of intimacy,addiction often rises to take its place. How can a young person navigate such troubled waters? Is there hope out there?

    Like a sailor on turbulent seas, we need to look up and see the North Star: the fixed points in the sky whereby we might navigate the objective realities in life. We need the skill-set to know how to journey through life and how to select the right people to journey alongside. In this book we will chart a course through the four relational phases that the vast majority of human beings on the planet will pass through in their twenties: singleness, dating, engaged and married. In each of these phases, we will look at what eternal purposes should be pursued in each stage, and how to pursue them.

    SINGLENESS: DEVOTION

    DATING: EVALUATION

    ENGAGED: UNIFICATION

    MARRIED: MISSION

    Our desires for intimacy are powerful. This power can be constructive or destructive. Our satisfaction and our safety will be ensured if we can aim these powerful desires toward divine purposes.
