Deep within every human heart lies a created hunger for the heavenly mountains of God's presence. The lungs of our soul ache to breathe the air of eternity. We thirst for waters that stream forth from divine springs. A divine restlessness exists within the innermost chambers of our soul, stirring us to seek an intimate knowing of God as our Father. Jesus said that His deepest desire was that we might know His Father as He did! He was born to show us the Father...and died that we might come to know Him personally. Jesus seeks to introduce us to a life lived with the Father-a life of ongoing, moment-by moment intimacy on all levels of humanness- mind, heart, soul, and will.
Jesus told a story about a young son, his older brother and their loving father. It's a great story that teaches us about God and about how patient he is. Jesus told stories, great stories, that tell us about who God is and what he is like. In the Stories From Jesus series the parables are retold and explained for young children.

It's filled with personal stories, focused on powerful principles, and is written for real people. We all know how easy it is, biologically, to become a father. What we often don't realize is that it takes work, dedication, and learned skills to become a dad, especially a great dad." - From the foreword by Jack Canfield, Co-Creator, #1 New York Times best selling series Chicken Soup for the Soul (r) In How to Be a Great Dad, you will learn: The 15-day Great Dad Challenge that transforms fathers into dads.

Dads have a special way of relating to children. They tend to rough-house and tease children more than moms do. It is usually a father who teaches a child how to shoot a free throw, catch a frog, or fix a broken bicycle chain.

Each of the 101 secrets in this wonderful gift book is explained in short descriptions accompanied by a drawing and a fact or tip. Many of these skills involve a simple secret to do them successfully. Knowing these secrets will enable any dad to look like a hero to his children. Included are instructions for...

"The Council of Nicaea in 325 AD marked the beginning of a new era in Christianity. For the first time, doctrines were organized into a single creed. The Nicene and Post-Nicene Fathers did most of their writing during and after this important event in Church history. Unlike the previous era of Christian writing, the Nicene and Post-Nicene era is dominated by a few very important and prolific writers. In Volume VI of the 14-volume collected writings of the Nicenes and Post-Nicenes (first published between 1886 and 1889), readers will find Saint Augustines exegesis on the Gospels and the Sermon on the Mount, which strove to interpret and draw meaning out of the text without incorporating the author's personal agenda or bias. Also included in this volume are a selection of Augustines sermons."
Why we may be forgiven--but are not yet free In January 2009, Dr. Mark Stibbe left his role as the senior leader of a highly successful Anglican congregation. Taking a big step of faith, he founded a ministry called The Father's House, dedicated to taking the Father's love to the fatherless and bringing an end to the global pandemic of fatherlessness. Mark took this risk because he is convinced that our society has been deeply damaged by absent or brutal fathers. The churches can offer a solution--a healing relationship with our Heavenly Father--but many Christians have been poorly fathered and are bound by the legacy of this wound. As long as believers are restricted by the chains of their past, their churches will not be a part of the solution to fatherlessness; they will be a part of the problem. "The whole planet is waiting for Christian believers to rise up as the adopted sons and daughters of Abba, Father." I Am Your Father is designed to help free Christians from their father wounds, so that they are then capable of playing their part in healing our fatherless world. In part 1, Mark takes a detailed look at fatherlessness. He describes the different ways in which fathers can hurt their children and the ensuing toxic results. In part 2, he goes deeper, defining the wound as "the orphan heart" and describing the main symptoms of this condition in peoples' lives. In part 3, he shows how Christians can find true healing through experiencing the spirit of adoption and by using seven keys to freedom. Mark uses his own story of being orphaned and adopted as the backdrop to this teaching.
"Larry Mehau was perhaps the most powerful man in Hawaiʻi since Kamehameha the Great, powerful in every way -- physically, mentally, spiritually, financially, politically. Four Hawaiʻi governors attended his celebration of life. So did the current Honolulu prosecuting attorney, a sitting member of the State Supreme Court and former justice. That's rather amazing for a man who was alleged to be the 'godfather' of crime in Hawaiʻi. Also invited was Don Chapman, the award winning Honolulu writer-editor who was the only journalist Mehau trusted enough -- simply through Chapman's reputation as a straight shooter -- to sit down with and share the exclusive details of his life. Those interviews form the basis of The goodfather, and Chapman adds his own commentary as well as that of Mehau's friends and associates, complemented by more than 100 historical photos. So was this larger-than-life cop-rancher-sumo champion-businessman political kingmaker-presidential driver really Hawaiʻi's criminal godfather? The title offers a hint of the author's assessment"--Page  of cover.
Practicing medicine in Mexico City, Dr. Collin Reeves finds himself facing moral dilemma as he is pressured by CIA agents Alex Law and Butch Nickels to treat torture victims as they try to obtain information about a possible terrorist bombing plot.
Recent studies conducted by the National Center for Fathering and National Fatherhood Initiative show that only fifty percent of children spend their childhood in an intact family, and about one-third of all children live apart from their biological fathers. As a father, your involvement is much greater than your mere presence. Fathers must ensure that their deeds exemplify their words in that the father exhibits the behavior he instills in his children. Bruce D. Edwards, JD, LLM, has mentored hundreds of young children, and he's witnessed what it means when they have a father figure in their lives. In his book, Bruce shares impactful qualities to becoming a better father and role model. Learn how to: -develop the necessary spiritual awareness to lead and guide children; -invest the necessary time and effort to be a great father figure; -show affection and love to boost a child's self-esteem; and -comprehend what it means to spend quality time with children. Whether you're a parent, grandparent, guardian, teacher, mentor, or an adult who wants to make a difference by cultivating lasting connections with children, The 14 Virtues of the Good Father is a great resource guide to assist in developing and nurturing fatherly relationships.
