Ariana’s comfortable Old Order Amish world is about to unravel. Will holding tightly to the cords of family keep them together—or simply tear them apart?

Click here to download an excerpt from Ties That Bind. 

Twenty-year-old Ariana Brenneman loves her family and the Old Ways. She has two aspirations: open a café in historic Summer Grove to help support her family’s ever-expanding brood and to keep any other Amish from being lured into the Englisch life by Quill Schlabach. 
Five years ago Quill, along with her dear friend Frieda, ran off together, and Ariana still carries the wounds of that betrayal. When she unexpectedly encounters him, she soon realizes he has plans to help someone else she loves leave the Amish.  
Despite how things look, Quill’s goal has always been to protect Ariana from anything that may hurt her, including the reasons he left. After returning to Summer Grove on another matter, he unearths secrets about Ariana and her family that she is unaware of. His love and loyalty to her beckons him to try to win her trust and help her find a way to buy the café—because when she learns the truth that connects her and a stranger named Skylar Nash, Quill knows it may upend her life forever.      
Ties That Bind is the first novel in the Amish of Summer Grove series.

SNEAK PEEK: Do Hard Things by Alex Harris and Brett Harris

cover image


A generation stands on the brink of a “rebelution”

 Click here to download chapter one of Do Hard Things.

Most people don’t expect you to understand what we’re going to tell you in this book. And even if you understand, they don’t expect you to care. And even if you care, they don’t expect you to do anything about it. And even if you do something about it, they don’t expect it to last. We do. – Alex and Brett

Do Hard Things is the Harris twins’ revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.

Combating the idea of adolescence as a vacation from responsibility, the authors weave together biblical insights, history, and modern examples to redefine the teen years as the launching pad of life.  Then they map out five powerful ways teens can respond for personal and social change.

Written by teens for teens, Do Hard Things is packed with humorous personal anecdotes, practical examples, and stories of real-life rebelutionaries in action. This rallying cry from the heart of an already-happening teen revolution challenges a generation to lay claim to a brighter future, starting today.

Now includes:
–A new introduction from the authors, “Looking Back, Looking Ahead”
–Questions (and Stories) To Get You Started
–A list of 100 Hard Things to help inspire you
–A study guide for personal or group use – See more at:

An Exclusive Offer: Messy Grace by Caleb Kaltenbach

cover image

If you’re alive, a Christian, and you live in America you’ve likely been drawn in to conversations around the topic of gay marriage and the homosexual lifestyle. As a son of not one but two gay parents, a Christ follower, and a pastor Caleb Kaltenbach has seen all sides of this dynamic play out. He’s shared his story and principles of grace on this issue and hopes it’ll be a road map for us as believers. As Caleb says, we can be uncompromising on truth AND loving to the LGBT community. How does that play out in real life? Well, it gets a little messy. But that’s the life Jesus calls us to and we must follow Him.

Because this issue is so divisive and current, we are doing something different from anything we’ve done before—we’re offering the opportunity for up to 200 people to read the book BEFORE it hits store shelves on October 20th. To get an advance copy of Messy Grace, it’s as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Pre-order the book from your favorite store/online retailer.

  2. Give us some basic information on this form.

  3. We’ll send you your early edition in the mail right away.

We hope these early copies will serve as a resource and that you’ll share the book with someone who needs it after you’re through. Let’s chart a new path of messy grace together.



SNEAK PEEK: Good Things by Kevin Gerald

cover image


Take a fresh look around you with eyes that cut through the daily distortions and see the undeniable and extravagant goodness of God. 

 Click here to download chapter one of Good Things.

There are certain messages today, both outside and inside the church, that have tainted the true message of God’s favor. The reality is God isn’t obligated to provide good things for us—but He wants to! This is your opportunity to adopt a favor-minded mentality and realize that God’s favor, like His grace, is unearned, limitless, and never-ending. And, it’s for us!
In Good Things, Kevin Gerald invites you to become a good finder. 
This book will equip you to:   
●    Discover that the goodness of God exceeds the pain of life’s hardship.
●    Know how to keep your mind on God’s favor not your failure.
●    Recognize that Grace and Favor are so intertwined you can’t separate them.
●    Apply seven favor dynamics that will help you overcome relationship barriers. 
●    See what you are certain to overlook until your eyes are trained to see it.
It’s time you move forward in confidence, knowing that God is for you. He is always seeking to give you good things, and His favor is forever!

SNEAK PEEK: Safe House by Joshua Straub

cover image


Parenting isn’t rocket science, it’s just brain surgery. 

And Dr. Joshua Straub has good news for you: You can do it!

 Click here to download chapter one of  Safe House.

You don’t need to do all the “right” things as a parent. Both science and the Bible show us that the most important thing we can provide for our kids is a place of emotional safety. In other words, the posture from which we parent matters infinitely more than the techniques of parenting.

 Emotional safety—more than any other factor—is scientifically linked to raising kids who live, love, and lead well. Learn how to use emotional safety as a foundation from which you parent—and make a cultural impact that could change the world!

 In Safe House, Dr. Straub draws from his extensive research and personal experience to help you: 

  • Foster healthy identity and social development in children of any age
  • Win the war without getting overwhelmed in the daily battles
  • Discipline in a way that builds relationship
  • Understand how the culture is affecting your child and what you can do about it
  • Cultivate responsible, self-regulating behavior in your kids
  • Establish an unshakeable sense of faith, morality, and values in your home
  • Feel more confident and peaceful as a parent
  • Find a greater perspective on parenting than what you might see on a daily basis


Includes a Safe House Parenting Assessment 

SNEAK PEEK: From Pain to Power by Mary Ellen Mann

Sexual violation was not your choice, but recovery is.

Click here to download chapter one of  From Pain to Power.

As a survivor of sexual trauma, you’ve likely experienced feelings of shame and confusion, and weakening of your faith and trust. It may feel like no one understands. And each day you’re simply trying to survive.

But the reality is you are meant for much more than survival. You are born with the right to use the pain as a point of power and reclaim what was taken without permission—your true identity.

Author Mary Ellen Mann understands. She’s been there. In From Pain to Power, she weaves personal story and years of research and counseling experience to provide comfort and respect, biblical insight, guided imagery, and self-care strategies. She will help you:

  • Regain your power, safety, and sense of self
  • Go to battle as a “Princess Warrior”
  • Learn to trust your gut instinct again
  • Protect yourself from further assault
  • Reconcile your faith in God, who understands your doubt and anger

Mary Ellen Mann stands in your corner as you restore and honor your rightful femininity, find your voice of reason, and choose to live a legacy-filled life.

Includes tips and resources for spouses, parents, ministry leaders, and advocates who want to help survivors of sexual assault. 


HOW GOOD IS GOOD ENOUGH by Andy Stanley on Fox News

cover image

According to Fox News, Bucks County Community College Professor Dwight “Mitch” Anderson was fired for his faith after he bought copies of How Good Is Good Enough by Andy Stanley and offered them to his students. Professor Anderson said that he told his students they could take a book if they wanted to or not, there was no pressure to take a copy whatsoever. About two weeks later a student called and was told Professor Anderson that he wanted his grade raised otherwise he would report him to the dean about the copy of How Good Is Good Enough that was offered to the student. The professor was reprimanded by the dean and later was ultimately fired for offering a copy of Andy’s book to his class.
