Mrs. Silas Bowman / Rod and Staff Publishers
Caleb had just found out that his best friend was moving four thousand miles away. It was staggering news. Joseph was the only other boy his age at school, and he and Caleb did many things together. What would he do without Joseph? That question throbbed through his mind and gnawed at the pit of his stomach.
"You can't cross a bridge before you come to it," Father explained that evening.
Together, Caleb and Joseph begin to understand what Father meant. It was another lesson to learn on the journey of growing up, one that would continue to bless them throughout their lives.
Crossing Bridges and Other Stories is a collection of stories for intermediate-age children. More info...

Men and Women as God Intended
Rick Rhodes / T.G.S. International
What role does God intend for men and women to fill? In a day when words like unisex, cross-dressing, homosexuality, same-sex marriage, and sex reassignment surgeries are increasingly common, do we really understand God's plan for the two genders?
Rick Rhodes, who lives in a country that performs the most sex reassignment surgeries in the world, has sought God's Word for answers on gender roles and shares his insights into some of these issues. He is well aware of cultural differences, having lived in the United States, on a Caribbean Island, and in Southeast Asia, and firmly believes that Biblical principles for men and women can be applied in every culture and every time period.
As society turns its back on Truth, it also turns to deception and confusion. What will you and I do?
This book is a refreshing reminder that God's original design cannot be improved upon! More info...
Fonda Good / T.G.S. International
Twelve-year-old Olive Brenneman doesn't know any home except California, since she moved there with her parents when she was too young to remember. What she does know is that life where her cousins and grandparents live in eastern Ohio definitely seems superior to hers. She dreams of the fun times at family reunions and the seemingly carefree lives her relatives talk about. In contrast, her life on a mountainside in dry California seems difficult and unexciting.
But slowly, Olive's perspective begins to change. She begins to understand that she is experiencing things in California that she would know nothing about if her family had stayed in Ohio. And most important, she realizes that God called her family there and where God places us is always the best place to be. Join Olive as she and her family experience excitement, fear, and tragedy in their California home. More info...
