A Grace Given - A Father's Love for a Dying Child

A Grace Given - A Father's Love for a Dying Child

$14.95
More Info

"There is a blessing sent from God in every burden of sorrow. There is hope in that, hope even in a dying child." "A Grace Given is a decade long window into the metamorphosis of the soul. This is a modern day Pilgrim's Progress told with humor, deep love, and unflinching honesty. A book that every Christian should read." -Donald E. Wildmon, Founder of the American Family Association and American Family Radio.

A Grace Given is the personal account of the impact that one life, however insignificant, can have on those around it. It explores how a child who never spoke, could not walk, and could not even smile, could still inspire and mobilize hundreds of people. Beyond that, A Grace Given explores the meaning of faith, the growth and deepening of spirituality that comes from suffering and sorrow, and the gift that a severely handicapped child represents. Most of all, it is the story of hope and a father's love.

Embraced by God Facing Chemotherapy with Faith

$10.95
More Info

Anyone who hears the dreaded word "chemotherapy" naturally experiences feelings of fear and apprehension. For Steve Givens that one word was the beginning of a new chapter in his life, one that would change him in profound ways. He believes that a brotherhood and sisterhood exists between those who have battled a chronic disease or undergone chemotherapy. They know one another's pain, numbness, and exhaustion.

They smile at one another when they meet in the hallway or while blood is drawn because they can relate and because they know. And here he shares his story with "kin," those who, like him, have no choice but acceptance. He still experiences times of pain, confusion, and sadness on his journey to wellness, but he also feels renewed and reborn spiritually. Here he reveals that he has chosen the way of faith and God because he knows of no other way that brings peace and gives him a reason to go on.

He has opted to embrace his disease and its treatment--but not by himself alone. As he says, "My arms are not big enough or strong enough for the battle." He believes, however, that the arms of God are big enough to encircle both him and his disease. This is a beautifully told story of struggle and pain, but ultimately of peace and acceptance, a wonderful resource for all who are facing chronic illness and its treatment.

    Stars At Night

    $16.99
    More Info

    "An apprenticeship with the night is an inheritance I would wish for everyone." Paula D'Arcy was only 27 when a drunk driver killed her husband and young daughter. But in the midst of her crushing despair, and to her complete amazement, she discovered a presence within her that responded to her fearful cries for help. Her anguished heart was met by a great tenderness and wisdom, which she grew to recognize as a transcendent love. Over time--knowing that pain was not the final say and did not have absolute power--she was able to find her way back to the light.

     At some point, we all find ourselves navigating a "dark night." The feeling of being blindsided by life, disoriented, lost and alone, is common to the human journey. Beyond the loss of loved ones through physical death, darkness may arise when we feel disillusioned, or when we confront unexpected illness, both mental and physical. We may face the dark if we suffer the loss of a job, or the loss of faith. It is a shadow lurking in the depth of addiction, and we know it in the times we feel betrayed and when we are abused. The pain of divorce, the realities of aging, the death of our particular dreams... these all evoke the dark. It wears many faces and names. Each experience has the potential to alter the way we look at ourselves and the way we think about life.

    In this captivating new work, D'Arcy begins with her own personal experience of loss and brings the reader with her, explaining how the enveloping darkness eventually began to lift, how night slowly became day again, and how she came to recognize the experience as a natural part of life. Anyone who has experienced great loss, or who has felt lost in the darkness, will gain new hope from The Stars at Night.

    Twelve Steps and the Sacraments: A Catholic Journey Through Recovery

    $15.95
    More Info
    Winner of a 2018 Catholic Press Association Award: Sacraments. (Second Place).


    In the first book to directly integrate the Twelve Steps with the practice of Catholicism, Scott Weeman, founder and director of Catholic in Recovery, pairs his personal story with compassionate straight talk to show Catholics how to bridge the commonly felt gap between the Higher Power of twelve-step programs and the merciful God that he rediscovered in the heart of the sacraments.

    Weeman entered sobriety from alcohol and drugs on October 10, 2011, and he's made it his full-time ministry to help others who struggle with various types of addiction to find spiritual wholeness through Catholic in Recovery, an organization he founded and directs.

    In The Twelve Steps and the Sacraments, Weeman candidly tackles the struggle he and other addicts have with getting to know intimately the unnamed Higher Power of recovery. He shares stories of his compulsion to find a personal relationship with God and how his tentative steps back to the Catholic Church opened new doors of healing and brought him surprising joy as he came to know Christ in the sacraments.

    Catholics in recovery and those moving toward it, as well as the people who love them will recognize Weeman's story and his spiritual struggle to personally encounter God. He tells us how:

  • Baptism helps you admit powerlessness over an unmanageable problem, face your desperate need for God, and choose to believe in and submit to God's mercy.
  • Reconciliation affirms and strengthens the hard work of examining your life, admitting wrongs, and making amends.
  • The Eucharist provides ongoing sustenance and draws you to the healing power of Christ.
  • The graces of Confirmation strengthen each person to keep moving forward and to share the good news of recovery and new life in Christ.
  • Weeman's words are boldly challenging and brimming with compassion and through them you will discover inspiration, hope, sage advice, and refreshingly practical help.

    Comforting a person who is grieving is never an easy task. When that person is a child the task becomes all the more difficult. As adults we worry about saying and doing the right thing, and too often we give the child quick answers instead of the support they really need. When a Child You Love Is Grieving takes a different approach to helping a child grieve.

    As a widely recognized grief specialist, Harold Ivan Smith explains that quick answers are not what children need when they are grieving. They need support, and most of all they need to be allowed to grieve - for as long as it takes. With an ABC-like approach, Smith offers insights and activities for the parent, teacher, or friend-anyone who loves a child and wants to offer his or her support.

    Chapters such as 'ANSWER honestly and accurately'; 'BE Alert to the needs of the sensitive child'; and 'CREATE a collage' suggest logical thinking skills and actual steps you can take to ensure that the child is receiving the healthy and necessary outlets he or she needs to grieve.
