A Christian parents’ guide to beginning open and honest discussions about homosexuality
This is perhaps the most complicated and contentious issue Christians face in today’s culture. Most churches are poorly equipped to handle it; parents are even less prepared. The good news is that parents need not have pat answers ready before they dive into conversations with their teens and preteens on this difficult topic. Gilson helps parents by providing biblical answers to common questions.
Reset for Parents: How to Keep Your Kids from Backsliding by Todd Friel
Raising a prodigal is every Christian parent’s worst nightmare. Horrifyingly, George Barna contends that over 60 percent of Christian kids will run off to university and “lose their faith.” Some pollsters believe the number is as high as 80 percent.
But there is great news! Your child doesn’t have to become a statistic. Your child can become an adult who loves the Lord the same way you do - but this will likely require a radical parenting reset on your part.
Todd Friel has witnessed to hundreds of university students, most of whom are Bible-belt backsliders. Reset for Parents gets to the heart of the issue and presents a solid, biblical roadmap for parents to avoid the pain and heartache of raising a prodigal
Kids have questions. In fact, they have some of the toughest questions we may ever be asked. What do we do when they ask us, “Why does God allow suffering?” “Can we trust the Bible?” or “What is a Christian worldview anyway?"

The Boy to Man Book: Preparing Your Son for Manhood
Hundreds of thousands of fathers all across America feel keenly their responsibility to bring their sons up in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” But they’re not quite sure how to do it.
This book may be what they are looking for. It is a book designed for fathers to read with their 12-year-old sons to introduce them to the rich wisdom about manhood from the book of Proverbs. Through this book, fathers can introduce their sons to the truths about God, about friendship, speech, anger, work, money, pornography, dating, and how to recognize the woman they are to marry.
And each chapter closes with a prayer that each father can pray over his son, so that he can pray the eternal wisdom of Solomon into the very life of his son. This may be just the tool dads need to help their young sons grow from boyhood to manhood.
