The Only One Facing As Much Pressure As the Pastor is … The Pastor’s Kid

Dad may be following God’s call, but the Pastor’s kids (PKs) are just following mom and dad. Often to devastating results.

Barnabas Piper – son of Pastor and bestselling author John Piper – has experienced the challenges of being a PK first-hand. With empathy, humor, and personal stories, he addresses the pervasive assumptions, identity issues and accelerated scrutiny PKs face.

But more than just stating the problems – he shares the one thing a PK needs above all else (as do their pastor/father and church) is to live in true freedom and wholeness.

Barnabas Piper is a PK, the son of well-known pastor John Piper. He writes for World Magazine at WorldMag.com and blogs at BarnabasPiper.com. He writes regularly for the popular blog, The Blazing Center. He and his wife live in the Nashville area with their two daughters.

Clean It! A to Z Guide of How To Clean Your Home : 667 Ideas For Cleaning Everything,The Quick & Easy Way (Gleam Guru Book 3)

Colette Leigh

If you have questions on cleaning, this book gives all the answers on how to clean just about everything. Awesome.

Nancy C. Lepri “Author/illustrator/editor/rev…

Let’s face it: cleaning your home can be a major frustration. There are spills to clean up. Endless surfaces to dust. Rugs to vacuum. Add all this to the busy life you lead with work, family, and friends, and it’s no wonder you need quick and effective tips on housecleaning.

That’s exactly where “Clean It! A to Z Guide to Cleaning Everything” comes into play!

From tough stains to delicate surfaces, from cherished family heirlooms that need restoration to common, everyday objects that can be recycled and reused, there are 667 topics, organized alphabetically, for your convenience in this special housecleaning guide.

What’s more, the cheaper and eco-friendly methods you’ll find in this guide are generally preferred whenever possible. We did this to ensure you don’t throw good money down the drain on high-end commercial products, when the solution was right in front of you all the time.

So, what do you need in order to keep your home spotless and your family safe and healthy? Everybody should have a healthy stock of laundry detergent (at least one mild, for delicate garments, and a heavy-duty one), two types of dish detergent (a non-abrasive and an abrasive detergent), stain remover, white vinegar, baking soda, washing soda, ammonia, bleach, rubbing alcohol, and an oven cleaner. Make sure you store these products away from the reach of children, since many are toxic.

Before we get into these cleaning tips, it’s important to learn how to use these items responsibly in order to protect yourself against accidents. For instance, bleach should never be combined with ammonia, as it releases toxic fumes. Many substances, such as kerosene or turpentine, are highly flammable. Oven cleaners are very effective on stains, but they’re also very damaging to your skin. Lye causes severe chemical burns, and should never come in contact with skin. Your closet of cleaning supplies should therefore also include several pairs of gloves, latex ones, but also a chemical-resistant pair, safety glasses, and clothing that cover your hands and legs completely, and a first-aid kit, just in case.

You also need a collection of sponges (soft and abrasive), brushes, paintbrushes, and wire brushes, rags and cloths – in particular micro-fiber, lint-free cloths, which can save you hours of work – mops and dusters, cotton swabs, and several buckets of different sizes. Do not forget to clean these items regularly; otherwise you’ll just be transferring germs to the cleaned objects!

Last but not least, there comes a time when you have to accept that an object is beyond rescue. Some spots that appear to be stains are in fact scratches or deep damage that cannot be removed. In other cases, the material is so delicate that any scrubbing will completely ruin the object. Finally, every cleaner has to admit that once in a while you come across a stain that simply beats the most advanced techniques in the world. There’s no shame in turning to professional help when you need it, and there’s no reason to sweat and scrub for hours when you’re dealing with an item that should have been replaced years ago.

In the end, the key to maintaining a spotless house is to combine patience and common sense. Be prepared to wash, rinse, repeat many times, but not to the point where you end up spending twenty hours a day with the mop and the sponge!

Harlan Walker thinks his uncle has gone crazy. With the project in motion, all he can do is try to find people to invest their time, money, and even their lives into Ralph’s project before the man ends up broke and without means to survive.

People come from all walks of life as they embrace a new world–the world of HearthLand.

Episode 2: As planning kicks into high gear, Ralph finds himself doubting his decisions. From land choices to architects, choosing the best option becomes nerve wracking. Additionally, Ralph finds that the quiet life can be a bit too quiet and living halfway across the country from his family makes him feel lonelier than he expected. However, with his purchase offer waiting for approval and plans to introduce the idea to potential investors under way, things seem like they’re looking up.

All I Need Is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans: The Tired Supergirl's Search for Grace

All I Need Is Jesus and a Good Pair of Jeans: The Tired Supergirl’s Search for Grace

Susanna Foth Aughtmon

I just started the book and I love the way the author is so real and vulnerable about who she is. I have already been encouraged by her words and at the same time, relieved that I am not alone! She presents issues of her own, that I identify with.

Beth Martin

Women everywhere feel pressured to have perfect Christian lives, perfect family lives, and to look perfect in their jeans. Instead of feeling good about themselves, most of them just feel like tired supergirls, living in the gap between who they are and who they long to be.

Susanna Foth Aughtmon honestly confesses her battles with pride, worry, fatigue, beauty, jealousy, and chocolate. In every chapter she faces a nemesis–like Worry Man or Mrs. Prideful–who implies that she is not living up to her potential. She meets each enemy with the secret weapon of God’s Truth. Readers will identify with her humorous examples from daily life and will gain insight from this tired supergirl on her journey of grace.

A great book in this amazing series. Keeps your attention from cover to cover and will not let you down!!!

JE LO

Moira St. Clair has done exactly what her father forbade her to do: chased her dreams to sing on the stage. But even as her star rises, she becomes more vulnerable to those who wish to use her—or bring her down….

It is 1886, and the St. Clairs are living out their dreams in three very separate parts of the world—Paris, Brazil and Colorado. And while each has found a measure of success and joy, each is haunted by past sins and secrets.
Once home in Colorado, the St. Clairs struggle to learn what it means to sing praise to God—even in the face of tremendous loss—and trust Him in all things, even when forced to fight for their very lives.

DL Kamstra

Sent west by their father to make a new life, the St. Clair siblings have done so—but hardly as he’d wished. Beautiful, headstrong Moira, after pursuing a career on the Paris stage, has returned to Colorado Springs—older, wiser, and certainly much poorer—to see if there’s anything left of a relationship she’d left behind. Older sister Odessa and her husband, Bryce, are struggling to rebuild their ranch after a devastating winter. And then Nic, the prodigal son, turns up—broken, haunted, and sick about leaving his sisters.

At last the family is reunited. But Dominic is still at loose ends, seeking a peace that has always eluded him. Only as he mines an old claim deep in the Rocky Mountains and begins a romance with a local schoolteacher does he begin to understand how passionately he is loved—by God, his family, and a good woman. But even as he relinquishes his fury, Nic discovers there is one last battle to fight…

The Legacy of Sovereign Joy: God’s Triumphant Grace in the Lives of Augustine, Luther, and Calvin (The Swans Are Not Silent)

John Piper

Great insight. John piper is a great author and I enjoyed reading his books. This book provides good insight into the lives of these individuals.

Andrew Zuber “Andrew”

We admire these men for their greatness, but the truth is Augustine grappled with sexual passions. Martin Luther struggled to control his tongue. John Calvin fought the battle of faith with worldly weapons.

Yet each man will always be remembered for the messages he declared-messages that still resound today. John Piper explores each of these men’s lives, integrating Augustine’s delight in God with Luther’s emphasis on the Word and Calvin’s exposition of Scripture. Through their strengths and struggles we can learn how to live better today. When we consider their lives, we behold the glory and majesty of God and find power to overcome our weaknesses.

If ever you are complacent about sin, if ever you lose the joy of Jesus Christ, if ever you are dulled by the world’s influence, let the lives of these men help you recapture the wonder of God. Book 1 in The Swans Are Not Silent series.

Knowing Scripture

Knowing Scripture

R. C. Sproul

This book does a wonderful job of introducing hermeneutics for the lay person and I would recommend it for any Christian. It presents advanced concepts in a way that it easy to read and understand.

Tim Challies

The Bible is the written Word of God, and it is treasured by many. But it is also an ancient book about people and cultures very different than us. Thus, while we know we should read it, many of us have a hard time understanding the Bible.

In this updated edition of Knowing Scripture, R. C. Sproul helps us dig out the meaning of Scripture for ourselves. The author says, “The theme of this book is not how to read the Bible but how to study the Bible.” He presents in simple, basic terms a commonsense approach to studying Scripture and gives eleven practical guidelines for biblical interpretation and applying what we learn. With a minimum of technical jargon, Sproul tackles some of the knotty questions regarding differences of interpreting the Bible, including

discovering the meanings of biblical words

understanding Hebrew poetry, proverbs and parables

approaching historical and didactic passages

being careful with predictive prophecy

discerning how culture conditions the Bible

choosing and using Bible translations, commentaries, Bible software and other helps

Knowing Scripture is a basic book for both beginning Bible readers and experienced students of Scripture.

Regret-Free Living: Hope for Past Mistakes and Freedom From Unhealthy Patterns

Stephen Arterburn

Highly recommended!

The Book Blogger

Steve Arterburn, bestselling author and host of New Life Live!, shares his regrets and how he learned to live beyond them and allow God to use them. With grace and transparency, Arterburn shows why people get stuck in regret, how it impacts every relationship they enter into, and the steps to emotional and spiritual freedom. More importantly, he offers a clear, proven decision making process that empowers readers t make the best decisions for their lives–decisions that they won’t regret.

Just as worry results from not accepting God’s full provision for the future, living in regret is an inability to accept God’s full provision for the past, especially the mistakes. Regret-Free Living takes the focus off of what was and what might have been, and shines a bright light onto the path of what is and what is to be.
