A devotional series for women that’s not anything like your typical women’s devo! Incorporating variety, creativity, and a broad sampling of spiritual disciplines, the eight titles in this series will enrich your relationship with God. Discover more about the series here.
This book is all about turning everyday experiences and fun activities (games, crafts, cooking, science experiments) into “God-moments” that will help your kids connect with God and grow to love him more. There are over 80 “moments” in the book; if you want a taste, you’ll find similar ideas in the Thriving Family section of my blog. (Buy a copy from Amazon here.)
For many moms of young kids, spiritual formation and cultivation of the interior life with God are a far-off dream—deeply desirable, yet utterly incompatible with the practical realities of daily life. The Busy Mom’s Guide to Spiritual Survival helps busy mothers implement mom-friendly spiritual disciplines into their real lives, enabling them to discover the one thing they most crave: deepened intimacy with their Savior. You can join me in discussion about spiritual formation in the Vibrant Faith section of my blog. (Buy a copy from Amazon here.)
Grand Days! I co-authored this fun, unique book with my good friend Joy-Elizabeth F. Lawrence. It’s a collection of great ideas for grandparents as they bond with their grandchildren. If you’ve got a grandparent in your life or if you want to help your parents better connect with your own kids, check out Grand Days! (Buy a copy from Amazon here.)
