Acceptance

Experiencing the Father's Embrace by Jack Frost

Experiencing the Father’s Embrace
by Jack Frost

Are you beaten down and feeling totally isolated,alone, rejected or unworthy? Throughout life we all receive either blessings or cursings from parents or authority figures that forever live in our memory. These experiences tend to define how we look at ourselves and walk through life; looking up with hope or down with despair. What most of us don’t know or fully embrace is that our heavenly Father loves us so much more than any human can or will and He deeply desires to heal our brokenness and replace our thoughts of rejection with His thoughts of perfection. In this book, Experiencing the Fathers Embrace: Finding Acceptance in the Arms of the Loving God, Jack Frost shares how God revealed a depth of His love that completely changed the way Jack functioned in both his family and in his ministry. This hard-nosed commercial fishing boat captain became a warm, tender-hearted father and husband. He and Trisha founded Shiloh Place Ministries with a vision to see the world experience the Father’s healing love through the hearts of its leaders.

Children

Boomerangs to Arrows by Sharon N. Elliott

Boomerangs to Arrows
by Sharon N. Elliott

A must read written by my mentor and friend, Sharon Elliott. In the face of high unemployment rates, rising costs of living, economic recession, and the present generation’s general malaise, many parents feel obligated to offer prolonged housing and financial assistance to young adult offspring. But as time passes, how can these boomerang children be transformed into arrows loosed from the parental quiver? Based upon an in–depth study of Psalm 127, Boomerangs to Arrows empowers parents to prepare themselves and their adult children for the time when those kids must be launched into independent, grown-up lives.

Hope

Hope Rising by Kim Meeder

Hope Rising
by Kim Meeder

Right from the Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Oregon, Kim Meeder has seen horses go where no one else can tread – stepping through the minefield of a broken child’s soul in a dance of trust that only God can understand. From a mistreated horse to an emotionally starved child and back again, a torrent of love washes away their barren places. Kim’s ranch is a place where this miracle happens over and over again. It is a place where the impossible flourishes, where dreams survive the inferno of reality – a place where hope rises.

Mercy & Grace

 Grace by Max Lucado

Grace: More Than We Deserve, Greater Than We Imagine
by Max Lucado

Max Lucado asks a deeper question: Have you been changed by grace? Shaped by grace? Strengthened by grace? Emboldened by grace? Softened by grace? Snatched by the nape of your neck and shaken to your senses by grace? God’s grace has a drenching about it. A wildness about it. A white-water, riptide, turn-you-upside-downness about it. Grace comes after you. It rewires you. From insecure to God secure. From regret riddled to better-because-of-it. From afraid to die to ready to fly.
