We’ve all heard the term ‘helicopter mom’- parents who ‘hover’ over their children in an attempt to keep them happy, safe, healthy, and alive. They hover because they fear. Helicopter Mom directly addresses the real life terror that all parents face with fearing for their children. Specifically designed for mothers, it gives a Christian, Biblical perspective on how to overcome these fears from the unique point of view of a helicopter flight nurse and mom who has vast experience in ‘hovering’. It takes lessons learned over my years as a flight nurse and puts them into practical, every day, Christian applications. There are anecdotes, stories, aviation information, and more that all knit together to bring about Biblical lessons and encouragement that all parents can easily relate to. Each chapter takes helicopter and EMS/nursing stories and knits them into an ongoing narrative that slowly paints a full picture of how to overcome fear. It is a sassy, funny, in-your-face, yet spiritually grounded journey that will have people laughing and learning spiritual truths all at the same time. This is a totally different approach to ‘self-help’ books, strap in and get ready to lift! Continue reading “Featured Book: Helicopter Mom by Bethany Douglas”
Christian theologian and apologist Craig Biehl presents a compelling and solidly scripture-based approach to defending the faith in his wonderful book, God The Reason.
Rather than refuting, one by one, common objections to Biblical theology, Biehl strikes at the root of unbelief by challenging and exposing its unjustified and faulty faith assumptions. In doing so, he also explores at depth the various attributes of God, examining their implications for right thinking, living, unbreakable faith, and defending and sharing the Gospel of Christ.

Dr. Erwin Lutzer lays out the fascinating and seldom examined story of Nazi Germany’s paradoxical attempt to use the Church to overthrow Christianity in his book Hitler’s Cross: How the cross was used to promote the Nazi agenda.
“Deine Reich Komme,” Hitler prayed these words publicly- Thy Kingdom Come. But to whose kingdom was he referring? The answer to that question is the heart and soul of this book, as Lutzer examines the rabid hatred that Hitler and his National Socialist Party (NAZIS) had for Christianity, and how he sought to infiltrate the church with his own philosophy and ideals to destroy it from within.

A Long Walk With Sally: A Grieving Father’s Golf Journey Back to Life
A parent’s worst fear and most unimaginable horror began on April 4, 2004. As his world was torn further apart, David’s only wish was to escape—to walk away—but how could he? How would he ever find the peace he so desperately needed?
On a golf course in Ireland, the answer came. Thus began a ten-year quest, taking David to 290 courses throughout the British Isles. As he was about to leave on his final trip, he looked out the windshield of his car and realized where he would find his peace.

At your salvation, your spirit was renewed, but your soul and body was not changed.
Spiritual Disciplines are given to us by God. They provide a way of sowing to the Spirit and they help you put off the “old man” and put on the “new man” (see Ephesians 4:22-24). By doing this, you “renew” your soul so it will agree with your renewed spirit. As the saying “means to an end” goes, the Spiritual Disciplines are the “means,” while the “end” is intimacy with God.
By exercising the Spiritual Disciplines, we are helped to mature spiritually and are put in a place where God can work within us to transform us. If we truly want to walk with God, we will exercise the Spiritual Disciplines.
Spiritual Disciplines are for everyone to use and should be a natural part of a Christian’s life, as natural as breathing.
