Or maybe life is crumbling around a friend or family member and you know they need some expert help. Or maybe you just want to provide a resource to help a couple in your life re-awaken a relationship gone stale. Trust me. These authors have been there.

 For Women

We all have women in our lives that have made an impact in who we are–moms, sisters, aunts, teachers, Bible study leaders, friends–women have a unique role to play in our world, but tend to be overworked, under-appreciated and harried by day-to-day living. Help the women in your life breathe new life into their walk with the Lord.

For Young Adults

Studies have told us that there’s no more critical time in a person’s life than in their teenage years. The issues a teen encounters in today’s sin-soaked world only serves to urge us to protect them from the common and easy-to-fall-into traps that encounter youth today. Also hard to find are quality fiction books that aren’t morally tainted. Check out the books below for books that will enrich, entertain, and challenge without compromising truth.
