New Releases

Congratulations to author Linda S. Clare and Harvest House Publishers on the January 21, 2020 release of Prayers for Parents of Prodigals.

Where to Turn When You Love a Wayward Child

You know what your child needs most is love. And you’ve given it to him over and over again. You’ve done all you can to train up your child, and yet you’re left brokenhearted as you watch her choose a different path.

Parents who love their prodigal no matter what, know that watching their child walk away can cause overwhelming guilt, frustration, and sadness. Whether you’re still waiting for your child’s return or are navigating your relationship after he or she has come home, this collection of topical prayers offers God’s comfort, wisdom, and compassion. Find encouragement in your journey with heartfelt prayers for:
faith, hope, forgiveness, trust, courage, peace, miracles, and grace. As much as you love your prodigal, you can rest in the blessed assurance that your heavenly Father loves your child even more.

Congratulations to Melissa K. Norris and Harvest House Publishers for the January 7, 2020 release of The Family Garden Plan: Grow a Year’s Worth of Sustainable and Healthy Food.

Melissa K. Norris, fifth-generation homesteader and host of the popular Pioneering Today podcast, will walk you through each step of the process, from planning your food crops and garden space to harvesting and preserving the food you grow. Even intermediate to experienced gardeners will discover dozens of new ideas.

More than just practical advice, you’ll learn how gardening can contribute to a sustainable lifestyle and give you a sense of accomplishment, peace of mind, and overall joy.

Make the Family Garden Plan your “grow-to” guide for good eating and greater well-being for you and your loved ones.

Congratulations to Glenn Schroder and Thomas Nelson on the January 21st release of Never Trust a Leader Without a Limp: The Wit and Wisdom of John Wimber, Founder of the Vineyard Church Movement.

A Unique Life, a Gifted Calling, a Lasting Legacy

John Wimber is not only revered as the founder of the Vineyard movement but is renowned for his unique ability to capture truth in pithy little phrases. This inspirational collection of memorable remarks, each placed in its historical context, offers astute observations on essential principles while also capturing and preserving the story and identity of a miraculous work of God.

For those who witnessed the miracle firsthand and for an entire generation of young leaders who never met John or experienced his ministry, here is a unique restatement of the foundational tenets that launched an international community of more than twenty-four hundred churches in more than one hundred countries—a lasting legacy of spiritual insights that changed lives then and can change your life today.

Change and tradition collide in two heartfelt Amish romances.

Courting Her Prodigal Heart by Mary Davis

Pregnant and alone, Dori Bontrager is sure her Amish kin won’t welcome her—or the child she’s carrying—into the community. And she’s determined that her return won’t be permanent. As soon as she finds work, she’ll leave again. But with her childhood friend Eli Hochstetler insisting she and her baby belong here, will Dori’s path lead back to the Englischer world…or into Eli’s arms?

The Amish Baker by Marie E. Bast

When his son breaks one of baker Sarah Gingerich’s prized possessions, widower Caleb Brenneman insists the boy make amends by doing odd jobs in her bake shop. A childless widow, Sarah can’t help falling for the boy…or his farmer father. But Caleb is progressive New Order Amish while Sarah holds traditional beliefs. Their hearts may be a perfect match, but their lives are worlds apart…

Just released from the Amen Clinics is Dr. Chapek’s, Concussion Rescue.

For more than 25 years, the renowned Amen Clinics has been the front line of defense against the impact of traumatic brain injury.
 
Few of us have been untouched by injury, whether on the sports field, in a car accident, falling off a bicycle, or in the course of military service. While the consequences of a concussion are not always immediately apparent, they can range from debilitating to devastating. In fact, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is fast becoming a national health crisis, with millions of Americans visiting emergency rooms with a TBI each year. But there are proven, effective steps for healing.

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Kabran Chapek describes in detail the programs and protocols he uses at the Amen Clinics to put patients on a pathway to recovery. For anyone struggling with the effects of concussion, Concussion Rescue guides you through strategies from the cutting edge of brain science:

* Find out what treatments should be employed within the first few hours, days, or weeks of suffering a concussion

* Build a diet and supplement plan that energizes your brain and promotes neurological healing

* Learn specific brain exercises and brain games that can alleviate problems with focus and concentration

* Discover which specific types of exercise can speed recovery—and how exercise affects the brain in general

* Correct sleep problems to detoxify the brain and release essential hormones that aid in healing

With a foreword by renowned psychiatrist and brain health expert Dr. Daniel Amen, Concussion Rescue provides the tools for recovery from mild to severe traumatic brain injury. Whether you or someone you love is among the many individuals suffering from a TBI, here is hope and help.

Congratulations to Rick Johnson and the Baker Publishing Group for the re-release and repackaging of Healthy Parenting: Become the Parent You Wish You’d Had, out on January 21, 2020.

Anyone can be a good parent, even if their own parents were abusive, neglectful, or absent. In this compassionate and practical book, Rick Johnson shows you how to identify the ways in which your past experiences affect your own parenting choices. Then he walks you through the process of healing the emotional and spiritual wounds toxic parenting has left behind. Finally, he outlines healthy habits and practices to take the place of negative ones that may have been modeled for you. With Rick as your sympathetic guide, you can break the cycle of abuse, neglect, or absenteeism and create a positive family environment now and for the future.

Congratulations to Kathy Barnette and Center Street for the release of Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain: Being Black and Conservative in America, due out on February 4, 2020.

During his first historic run for the presidency in 2016, Donald Trump made an impassioned plea to the black community. “Give me a chance,” he said. “What the hell do you have to lose?”

According to Kathy Barnette, black Americans have nothing to lose, except for crime-ridden communities, neighborhoods that have become shooting galleries, more social welfare programs, and the mocking indifference of the Democrat party. Barnette argues that even a cursory look into the black community reveals the destabilizing effect liberal policies have had on the black family.

There was a time when Barnette bought into the same lie as everyone else that if you’re black, you must be a democrat. In fact, she was born into the Democrat party just as much as she was born into brown skin. There was no point of separation. Until she began to understand what it truly means to be black in America. Barnette contends that being black is more than just the color of her skin. It’s a culture and a consciousness, too.

In NOTHING TO LOSE, EVERYTHING TO GAIN, Barnette writes about why liberal policies have failed the black community time and time again – and will fail the larger American community as Democrats rush to the hard Left of the party. From the “Great Society” to Kanye West’s ongoing war with the liberal establishment, this book provides sharp, eloquent commentary on the most pressing issues facing black Americans today: broken family structure, loss of identity, the legacy of slavery, and more.

Barnette argues that President Trump has not been willing to presume that the “black vote” is a foregone conclusion resting comfortably in the back pockets of Democrats. With his plainspoken style and willingness to face harsh truths, the president has done more for the black community than any president since Abraham Lincoln. Barnette insists the time is now to get back what has been lost, to fix the brokenness, and to recognize and support those who are actually working in our favor.

We have nothing to lose, and even more to gain.
