What Happened to Our Money?

An introductory financial guide for young couples

Gary Miller / TGS International

Amos and Mandy aren't married long before they face a troubling question: Why does there never seem to be enough money? Indeed, few things in their lives are as commonplace, yet perplexing, as money management. To solve the puzzle, they mine the Scriptures and find timeless spiritual principles that transform their view and use of money.

Perhaps you wonder:

  • How do we feed, clothe, and shelter a growing family without losing sight of heavenly values?
  • Where do we find resources to serve the Kingdom of God when everyday expenses seem to consume every penny?
  • Is it better stewardship to buy a house or to rent?
  • What can we do if we feel trapped by debt?
  • How can a Christian couple avoid the discord money brings to so many marriages?

Read this book for practical and challenging answers to all these questions and more. More info...

Prayers and Peanut Butter
The Mother Book

Barbara Classen / Gospel Publishers

Every mother wants to have her act together. We want to love our family, breeze through our work, and never have peanut butter on the floor. Reality is different. Milk spills, children whine, and we make mistakes. Where is that high calling, that noble work we've always heard about? If we had to write an essay on motherhood, it might read like this:

“Motherhood. I know absolutely nothing about being a mother—nothing at all. The End.”

Prayers and Peanut Butter is about the high and noble as well as the down-and-dirty part of motherhood. You'll find poems, pastor quotes, wisdom from other mothers, helps from the Bible, tips on getting children ready to leave, ways to make the most of your time, ideas for family evenings, and inspiring anecdotes about mothers and children.

Often Reproved

N. D. F. / Rod and Staff Publishers

"Why do the leaders of the church always have to tell us what to do?" eighteen-year-old Gary Grandon asked his circle of friends. "We're all Christians, and I don't know why we can't think some things through for ourselves."

Gary was a member of the Stone Hill Mennonite Church, and all his life he had been taught to submit to and respect church authority. But when that church authority touched his car, his cell phone, his clothes, his work boots—weren't the church leaders going too far? After all, Gary was a Christian too. Why couldn't he decide some things for himself?

In many areas, Gary conformed outwardly to what was expected of him, but his stubborn willfulness continued inside—until the hand of a merciful God brought him face to face with the real state of his relationship with God. More info...

Trailblazer: A Visionary's Journey

An evangelist and his family embrace the hardships and adventures of spreading the Gospel

Rachael Lofgren / TGS International

As the young rebel rode through town on his spirited horse, he reveled in the freedom he had to make his own choices. He could have fun showing off his riding prowess. He could choose his own friends. Someday he would go anywhere he liked, and he would show his family and community all he could do.

But a change was in the making, and Sanford found it harder and harder to enjoy his selfish pursuits. And when he finally yielded himself to God, he found that the real adventures were only beginning. Now, instead of making a name for himself, he wanted to glorify God's name. And God was faithful to provide Sanford with many opportunities to do just that.

When a man who is eager for new challenges embraces God's call, anything can happen. God used Sanford to expand His kingdom in new and innovative ways. Yet, while the trailblazer experienced many exciting adventures, his life consisted primarily of serving God in ordinary days filled to the brim with hard work, difficult questions, and relational challenges.

Building on Biblical truths about God and humanity, this book offers inspiring examples and practical strategies to help us reflect Christ's love to others, even when they make our lives difficult. More info...
