Featured Book: Helicopter Mom by Bethany Douglas


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”

Connecting the Dots: Man, God, Angels, and Demons by Dave Shaw

25966953

Have you ever wondered why God, who is all-knowing and all-powerful, chose to create Satan?

Is it possible that, in the grander scheme of things, Satan and his hordes of demons are unknowingly playing a role in God’s great plan for mankind?

In this first book of the Connecting The Dots series, author Dave Shaw tackles a question of the ages- why did God create Satan? Based on sound Biblical doctrine, Shaw takes readers on a journey through creation, the war in heaven, the fall of Satan, and the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross. While the Bible doesn’t always give us explicit reasons why, Shaw shows us how we can take what we do know from scripture to “read between the lines” in an attempt to connect the dots.

Shaw explores a wide variety of subjects while attempting to keep the bigger picture of God’s redemptive plan as a focal point. The book offers readers a look at some of the more obtuse, seldom-discussed topics in an attempt to answer some of our deepest questions.

Bob Hostetler explores the book of ecclesiastes, one of the most enigmatic and misunderstood books of the Bible.

Known for its cynical refrain of “vanity, vanity, all is vanity!”, the book of ecclesiastes lays bare the realities of life without any attempts to sugar-coat or glamorize it. In other words, “life stinks and then you die!”
