  • Freedom Starts Today

    $16.99

    Every church is filled with people who are struggling–often secretly–with addictions of all kinds. Porn, pills, food, money, alcohol, social media, body image, status, sex, anxiety–the list goes on and on. John Elmore is no stranger to addiction. Fifteen years ago, he put a loaded shotgun to his head and later had three doctors tell him he was going to die of alcoholism. More than 15 sober years later, he leads the world’s largest weekly recovery gathering, re:generation, where people journey toward healing in Christ.

    In Freedom Starts Today, he makes a huge promise to the addicted: you can be free from your struggle, and much sooner than you may think. Through easily digestible readings grounded in Scripture and the practice of daily surrender, Elmore shows you how to break the cycle of addiction, make war against sin, and find your identity in who you are and not the shame of what you have done–one day at a time.

    Leave behind struggles, addiction, and shame as you walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the love, mercy, and forgiveness of the God who is not only by your side but on your side. Continue Reading Freedom Starts Today

    There are thoughtful, biblically wise, and creative ways we can engage young people. The responsibility lies on us as adults to work hard at drawing kids out.

That’s why the activities in Building Bridges can be used over and over in multiple contexts.

  • Caring For The Souls Of Children – A Biblical Counselors Manual

    $29.99

    Coming alongside struggling children can feel like an uphill battle. Yet children struggle with the same desires adults struggle with, are lured by the same lies adults fall prey to, and can find hope in the same source adults can find hope–in Jesus. This manual helps counselors share Christ–the way, the truth, and the life–while tailoring interactions and teachings to the understanding of children.

    Caring for the Souls of Children equips counselors, parents, pastors, and other helpers who want to love children to boldly trust in the sufficiency of Scripture. Edited by counselor and author Amy Baker, this in-depth resource begins with an overview of foundational principles for counseling children and addresses a different counseling topic in each subsequent chapter. Topics addressed include a wide variety of general and specific issues that children face including anxiety, anger, abuse, suicidal thoughts and actions, self-harm, shame, grief, disability, disease, sexual identity, and many others. Articles are written by a wide range of biblical counselors, authors, and pastors who have worked with children for many years including Amy Baker, Julie Lowe, Marty Machowski, Jessica Thompson, Jonathan Holmes, Michael R. Emlet, Garrett Higbee, Edward T. Welch, Kevin Carson, Harvest USA, Charles Hodges, Joni and Friends, Bob Kellemen, and Pam Bauer.

  • Making SPACE At The Well

    $16.99

    When it comes to ministry related to mental health concerns, prayer and Scripture are not enough.

    Beginning with the biblical motif of going to the village well for the waters that sustain life and exploring the communal significance of that well, professor and clinical psychologist Jessica Young Brown calls on the Black Church to rally its historic resilience and creativity to acknowledge and engage those in its pews who are struggling with mental health concerns. Using the acronym of SPACE, the author discusses:

    * Silencing the Stigma … naming the negative attitudes and mistaken assumptions about mental illness, especially in the African American community
    * Presence & Persistence … identifying the importance of authentic relationships in healing mind and spirit
    * Application & Action … highlighting practical steps to address the needs as they emerge
    * Cautions … being real about the fears and risks related to mental health crises, including the importance of referrals
    * Expression & Exhortation … calling on the cultural power of testimony to encourage the entire congregation to access the healing power of God

    Jessica Young Brown concludes with a practical exploration of Now What? Digging the Well and Drawing from It. The book’s appendix features a brief primer on common mental disorders that frequently affect members of our family, neighborhood, and church. Continue Reading Making SPACE At The Well

  • Embodying Integration : A Fresh Look At Christianity In The Therapy Room

    $28.00

    Discussing spirituality and religion in the therapy room is increasingly accepted, some even forgetting that integration of psychology and Christianity was once a rare thing.

    Yet even as the decades-long integration movement has been so effective, the counselor’s lived context in which integration happens grows increasingly complex, and the movement has reached a new turning point. Christian practitioners need a fresh look at integration in a postmodern world. In Embodying Integration, Megan Anna Neff and Mark McMinn provide an essential guide to becoming integrators today. Representing two generations of counselor education and practice, they model how to engage hard questions and consider how different theological views, gendered perspectives, and cultures integrate with psychology and counseling. Many students, they write, don’t want models and views that tend to simplify complexity into categories. They are looking for conversation that helps them dive into the complexity, to ponder the nuances and messiness of integration. More than focusing on resolving issues, Neff and McMinn help situate wisdom through personally engaging, diverse views and narratives. Arising from conversations between an up-and-coming practitioner and her veteran integrator father, this book considers practical implications for the day-to-day realities of counseling and psychotherapy. Personal stories, dialogues between the coauthors, and discussion questions throughout help students, teachers, mental health professionals, and anyone interested in psychology and faith to enter–and continue–the conversation.

  • When Words Fail

    $16.99

    More than 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s disease today-a number expected to triple in the next 30 years. Many more experience other forms of dementia. For faith communities, this represents a crucial opportunity for ministry and practical care-one that many aren’t adequately prepared for.

    Amidst mental and physical decline, those suffering from dementia diseases still deeply need human connection and spiritual nourishment. Sadly, as memories fade and the ability to communicate weakens, those with dementia may find themselves neglected or forgotten by the larger community. Despite good intentions, oftentimes when words begin to fail for people with dementia, they also fail for those around them, who don’t know what to say or what to do.

    When Words Fail will equip those in ministry to reach out to people living with dementia and offer person-centered spiritual care-ministering to the mind, body, and soul. This book is rich with practical examples and tools designed to meet these emotional, physical, and spiritual needs, and devotes particular attention to ways of communicating even after words have failed. Taken together, these tools give pastoral workers a better understanding of how to visit and support not only people living with dementia but their caregivers, too. Continue Reading When Words Fail
