There's no doubt about it. Families are hard, not easy. The reason relationships are hard is because relationships are good...and all good things are hard. Read this little book and stop seeing the hard times as something to avoid and instead see them as something to cherish.
If you're a homeschooling mom, you'll know exactly the type of life The Homeschool Experiment portrays. A funny and practical novel that takes a micro-level look at one family's first year homeschooling, author Charity Hawkins has also integrated a number of real-life resources, curriculum suggestions, blogs, and more--if you've homeschooled, there is much to recognize in the Miller family's journey! Picking up on all the little things: the distractions, life with a toddler, whining kids who take 20 minutes to write one word, tantrums, discipline, organizing chores, picking out books at the curriculum fair, co-ops, and of course dealing with disapproving stares and family members, be encouraged as you read how Julianne Miller navigates the waters of homeschooling with humor and faith. 229 pages, softcover. Appendix with homeschooling resources mentioned in the book is included, as well as a homeschool group study guide with questions for each chapter.
This is no ordinary get-outside-live-life man's devotional. Real, relevant, fresh, and "Guaranteed not to bore you out of your skull," get reminded and challenged by your role as a husband and father. Focused on your relationship to God, with your wife, and with your children, each of the 365 entries begins with a short Bible reading and a short, personal story sure to inspire and provide a truth to think and reflect on. 371 pages, softcover.
"There are just two kinds of people: dreamers and used-to-be-dreamers."
Todd Wilson's passionate plea to stay within the dreaming category will inspire and motivate you to keep on working, keep stepping out in faith, and keep dreaming big.

Father Power: Inspiring Every Dad to Be His Child's SuperheroTodd WilsonFamilyman Ministries / 2007 / Trade Paperback$8.49 Retail:
$10.99Save 23% ($2.50)
Don't let the bold, cartoonish cover of Father Power fool you---it conveys Todd Wilson's signature up-beat, humorous style and the truly superhuman nature of a father's influence, but not the urgency or significance of his message. As always, Todd is engaging and encouraging the whole way through as he speaks to fathers as a fellow dad down in the trenches, ever "reminding dads of what's most important" and doing everything he can to help them choose it and live it. Lots of anecdotes and illustrations make reading and understanding easy and Todd's wit and cartoons keep a weighty topic from becoming too heavy. Application questions help you assess your current position and think about your choices and their consequences---you'll be able to evaluate where you stand and where you want to be so you can make changes now to avoid regrets later. God has given every dad a powerful influence in the lives of his wife and children and it can be used for good or bad, but it cannot be relinquished. Dad, don't squander your gift or the limited time you're given with your loved ones---choose to use your Father Power for good before it's too late.

Jason is a typical boy who likes action stories. When he tries to interject a little excitement into his sister's Christmas Eve retelling of the nativity story by adding a visit from a spacehero action figure, he gets a one-way ticket to his bedroom for the rest of the night. But a bad attitude and an unwitting wish combine to summon Jason's spacehero Captain Chaos, and Captain Chaos sets in motion a machine that will delete the birth of Christ from history! The next day, as Jason explores the town he lives in and the people who live there, he realizes how different the world would be without Jesus, and he needs to rely on his faith to lead him to the one thing that can restore the world back to the way it was. Color pictures on each page make the story easy to follow as Jason learns the cost of careless words and the importance of appreciating what truly happened on that wonderful night two-thousand years ago.
