Faith and Finance: Peace With or Without Prosperity

Faith and Finance: Peace With or Without Prosperity

Melissa Schworer

Price: FREE

If you’re a Christian who is struggling with your finances, you could do a lot worse than to read this book. God knows how to manage money better than we do, and by obeying His “advice” and surrendering your finances to the One Who owns it all anyway, you can have financial peace with or without prosperity, as the title of this book claims.

Laura

Faith and Finance takes the fear out of financial management and making ends meet by guiding the reader through God’s scriptural promises on provision. It is a straightforward approach to looking at your stewardship through God’s eyes, hitting key points like debt, retirement, giving, lending, multiple incomes, peace in the home, and much more.

BACK:

A preacher once said, “Everyone is looking for peace. Everyone wants to take a deep breath and release a sigh of relief that is not just on the outside, but on the inside. That’s what we can have as Christians, but we have to appropriate what God has given to us to have that.”

This book will take you through a journey that will plow the ground of your heart, lay a new foundation of financial principles based on the word of God, and help enable you to weather the inevitable financial storms of life – with peace.

It doesn’t matter if your checking account is overflowing or empty, peace comes from knowing your footing is sure with every choice you make in your stewardship.

No longer do you have to feel like the double-minded man tossed to and fro, uncertain about every decision. You can raise your shield of faith against each fiery dart by resting on the scriptural principles found within Faith and Finance – Peace With or Without Prosperity.

Stages of Homeschooling: Enjoying the Journey (Book 2)

Barbara Frank

Loved this book and felt refreshed as to why I am homeschooling. I have only been homeschooling for 3 years, so this book not only gave me great ideas, but it reassured that I was on the right path. Her examples and advice are very helpful. This is a must read for those who are homeschooling.

Have you got a few years of homeschooling under your belt, and you’re looking for practical information and encouragement from someone who’s lived the homeschooling life?

If your answer is “yes,” then this is the book for you.

Barbara Frank just wrapped up 25 years of homeschooling four children, including one with special needs, and wants to share her experiences with those currently on the homeschool journey. So she’s combined new material with some of her articles and blog posts into a series of four books called Stages of Homeschooling. Enjoying the Journey is the second book of the series.

Stages of Homeschooling: Enjoying the Journey is divided into eight sections:

“Raising Children You Can Live With 24/7” (An especially important consideration for homeschooling parents)

“Self-Care for the Homeschooling Parent” (How to keep yourself strong for the important job of homeschooling)

“Homeschool Challenges and Issues” (Handling difficulties that might crop up for you personally or for the homeschool community at large)

“Books and Resources I Have Known and Loved (and How to Find Them)”

“Homeschooling and Holidays” (A look at holidays from the vantage point of a homeschooling parent)

The Soul Survivor

The Soul Survivor

Joe Townsend

Price: FREE

From the first chapter, which recounts the chance meeting between Captain Joe Townsend and Shawn Doyle who were seated next to one another on a commercial airline flight, I was utterly hooked. It may be a trite statement, but I truly couldn’t put it down!

Traci J. Johnson

This book is inspirational and serious because it is about a real life accident and overcoming adversity. Even though those are heavy topics- it is also important for us to capture Joe’s unique personality and sense of humor. It adds to the message we are trying to deliver.

Overview – and how this book is different!

The purpose of Soul Survivor is to tell the real life story of Joe Townsend, who was flying one day with his family and due to mechanical failure – the small plane he was piloting crashed- killing Joe’s wife and two small daughters. Joe was critically injured and survived brain injury, a stroke, hours of surgery and months of physical and emotional pain to survive and then to thrive. Through grit and determination, he then began to rebuild a new life. This inspirational real life tale of overcoming adversity will get people to realize their own true potential. When they read this story, they will understand that if one man can overcome this kind of horrific adversity, then anything in life is possible. There are no limits.

Vintage Remedies Guide to Bread

Vintage Remedies Guide to Bread

Jessie Hawkins

Price: FREE

All in all, it’s fabulous information – definitely worth reading. I fully credit Ms. Hawkins with changing my whole outlook on bread baking and taking my family one more step in the right direction.

M. Force

Yet bread is now considered to be unhealthy and is even harmful for many. Ever wonder what happened? Explore the truth about one of our oldest and most loved dietary staples in the Guide to Bread. In this eye-opening book, Jessie Hawkins explains how scientists have produced wheat bread using ancient methods that is gluten free and safe for celiac patients, how specific additives and alterations have been directly linked with the rise in gluten intolerance, and why the real solution to bread isn’t found in freshly milled wheat or soaking grains. You’ll also learn how real bread can help alleviate what the World Health Organization calls the most common nutrient deficiency, why most store bought gluten free foods are unhealthy, and how you can produce your own healthy, real bread – effortlessly – in your own home!

Becoming Your Spouse's Better Half: Why Differences Make a Marriage Great

Becoming Your Spouse’s Better Half: Why Differences Make a Marriage Great

Rick Johnson

Price: FREE

It’s no secret that men and women are different. And it’s no secret that they don’t always get along because of these differences, even when they love each other. But having a successful marriage is not about finding the perfect person to marry. It’s about loving someone in an unselfish, Christlike manner. Whatever we want out of marriage–unconditional love, forgiveness, passion–that is what we have to give to our spouse. Rick Johnson shows couples how to go beyond merely tolerating each other’s differences to using those God-given differences to add spice and passion to their relationship.

Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children

Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children

Barbara Frank

Price: $0.99

This book completely opened my eyes to what I was doing “wrong” and how to fix it. My parenting style is underway of a huge change! And this book pointed me in the “right” direction!! I think everyone should give it a try!

Kel

Times are changing. We’re learning that making do is a lost art that we need to revive.

When money was tight for our grandparents, they could still enjoy good food and nice clothing and furniture because they knew how to make these things for themselves. They were self-sufficient.

Are you raising your children to be self-sufficient? In the uncertain days ahead, will they be able to fend for themselves? Or will they be like so many modern Americans, dependent on others to do everything for them…as long as they have the money to pay for it.

Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children explains why you should teach your children seven basic skills they’ll need in order to become self-sufficient adults:

Cooking
Baking
Handling Money
Homemaking
Gardening
Woodworking
Sewing

In Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children, author and homeschooling parent Barbara Frank shares her experiences of teaching these practical skills to her four children. Having scoured the Web for the very best online resources for learning the how-to’s of these skills, she also shares the wealth of practical information she found, saving you the considerable time involved in searching out high-quality online resources to help you teach your children each of these practical skills. This eBook is based on a popular series of articles written for Mrs. Frank’s newsletter. Readers loved the series so she put all of the articles into one eBook.

Developing these skills will prepare your children to face an uncertain future with confidence. As a bonus, it will build their self esteem in an authentic way, through the sense of accomplishment they feel as they become self-sufficient. If necessary, you can learn these skills right alongside your children.

Make sure your children become adults who know how to take care of themselves: get Back to Basics: Raising Self-Sufficient Children now!
