All Creation Waits Childrens Edition$20.99Read more
From bestselling author Gayle Boss, a stunningly illustrated picture book edition of her beloved Advent book, All Creation Waits. Now young readers too will be caught up in the wonder of 24 woodland animals adapting to the season of dark and cold.
Each day of Advent a different animal shows children its own amazing way to meet the dark and cold. Wood Frog freezes into a frog-shaped cube of ice! For six months Painted Turtle doesn’t breathe! Woodchuck can’t be wakened, even if shaken! With each creature, children hear the refrain: The dark is not an end. It’s a door. It’s the way a new beginning comes.
Here is the ancient truth of Advent enacted in the lives of 24 common woodland animals and culminating in the birth of the Human One who perfectly lived that truth.
Children open the book’s double-page spreads as they would the doors on an Advent calendar–one, and only one, each day. “Animal wonderment” reflection questions at the back of the book help children stay with just one animal, one page spread, each day. In an often chaotic “holiday season,” children learn to slow down and wait with all creation.
Written in lilting poetic lines, children ages 5 to 10 will delight in the sounds of the words as well as the vivid descriptions of animals’ winter lives. They’ll learn the elegant intricacies of creatures as small as honeybees, as large as black bears.
Original watercolor paintings by award-winning artist Sharon Spitz convey the radiance of each creature.
With this beautiful picture book, adults and families who have loved the original edition of All Creation Waits can now welcome younger children into the practice of reflective waiting-with-creation through Advent. Perfect for grounding young ones in the wonder of wild things.
Marys Voice : Advent Reflections To Contemplate The Coming Of Christ$24.00Read more
Find guidance through the advent season with the mother of Jesus and central figure in the story of Christmas, Mary.
At Christmastime we remember that an ordinary, young, poor, oppressed woman was chosen to play a significant and breakthrough role in the redemption of the world. It is no mistake that a woman gets to be a part of all this, and that her voice, her questions, her fears, and her actions matter.
Mary’s faith and her wisdom form an astonishing aspect of the story of how God became a person for the love of this world. And in our weary world that is waiting and longing for light, meaning, peace, and love, we can do as Mary did when she “treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.”

3 Wise Women$18.99Read more
Three very wise women lie at the heart of the First Christmas events: Mary (Jesus’ blessed mother), Elizabeth (mother of John the Baptist), and Anna the Prophetess (who waited her whole adult life in the temple, expecting to see the Messiah). In this devotional, covering Advent to Epiphany, each daily devotional is written from the viewpoint of one of the women, beginning with the Scriptural account. Then, steeped in biblical culture and what we know about the women from the Bible, the reader can delve deeper into what these amazing, real-life women may have been experiencing, or pondering, as they journeyed toward the Day of Christ’s Birth and beyond. The struggles and joys of Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna should connect with what most readers experience at Christmas and perhaps, every day. Devotions focus on: Patience, Hope, Faith, Trust, Persistence, Sacrifice, Joy, Grace, Love, Unselfishness, and so on, addressing women’s needs that cross generations . . . and centuries.
The Story of Jesus through the eyes of the three wise women unfolds chronologically, narrated by Mary, Elizabeth, and Anna. When these women connect–Elizabeth in her sixth month of pregnancy, and Mary, newly pregnant by the Holy Spirit–unselfish love and honor lead the women to glorify God and praise him for his age-old plan of salvation. Later, when Anna sees Mary enter the temple for the dedication of Jesus, the Messiah, she realizes the King of Kings is before her. And she knows this is the fulfillment of the prophecies, including “the sword” that will pierce Mary’s heart.
“Pondering” questions invite personal reflection on each woman and on the reader’s own life, and questions provide ample discussion for Bible study groups.

Better Than Anything Christmas$9.99Read more
Advent devotional helping your family get more excited about Jesus at Christmas than anything else.
A Better Than Anything Christmas is the second Advent devotional for families from Barbara Reaoch, author of the best-selling A Jesus Christmas.
These daily devotions in the Gospels give a thorough investigation of why Jesus came. In the lead-up to Christmas, families will explore 25 reasons why Jesus came, and they will see that what Jesus gives us is better than anything else we could wish for.
Each day there is a passage to read together, questions to think about, an explanation and a prayer. There are also age-appropriate application questions, some for younger children and some for older children, as well as journalling space so that each family member can write or draw their own response to what God has shown them.
So get each family member a copy of A Better Than Anything Christmas and a Bible, and find ten minutes a day in December to look at God’s word together so that kids get more excited about Jesus than anything else that Christmas offers.

Characters Of Christmas$13.99Read more
Learn Something New This Christmas. Every year we sit around our over-ornamented trees, read the Christmas story (usually from Luke 2), and talk about Jesus and Mary and Joseph. But what about the other guys? What about the shepherds and the wise men, Simeon and Anna, and Herod? What’s the deal with those characters? And what can they teach us about Jesus? That’s what The Characters of Christmas is all about. Each chapter explores a different perspective on the coming of Christ by looking through the eyes of an oft-overlooked character in the story. You’ll learn interesting background information, discover new aspects of the story, and consider questions you never thought about before. You’ll be amazed at how God used ordinary, everyday people to bring His Son into the world. Break free from the familiar this year, and discover something you never knew about the story you’ve always heard.

‘Comfort, O comfort my people. . . In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord.’
The second part of the book of Isaiah rings with proclamations and prophecies that find their fulfilment in the Gospels and are still being fulfilled by followers of Jesus today.
Nick Baines invites you to think about what it meant for people in Isaiah’s day to be living in exile, and how the prophet encouraged them to keep their faith alive despite the apparent hopelessness of their situation.
At the same time, this book helps you to see the connections between Isaiah’s time and ours, and how his vision of God’s truth and justice spreading throughout the world can comfort, challenge and inspire God’s people now, just as it did back then.
Read this book and find out how you too can become a ‘light to the nations’ as, once again, we approach the celebration of Christ’s birth and the new world that God has promised to bring into being.
