    A Retelling of the Parable of the Prodigal Son

    We so often desire to save ourselves, either through running from rules or self-righteously following them-missing the true joy and rest found in the Father’s unconditional love. In this picture book for kids ages 3-7, author Ginger M. Blomberg retells the story of the prodigal son through the eyes of wild-child Eddie and his rule-following brother Charlie.

When Eddie returns home feeling scared and guilty about his choice, his father is waiting for him with open arms. But Charlie, who is confused by his father’s immediately welcoming reaction, is hesitant to join in the celebration. This book, like the parable, doesn’t resolve Charlie’s story but instead invites young readers to imagine themselves in Charlie’s position-spurring thoughtful discussion between parents and children as they learn about sin, grace, and the unconditional love of the Father through his son’s death on the cross.

    $11.99

    Fun lift-the-flap board book that motivates small children to use their ears in a Christ-like way.

    This helpful and engaging training tool will help parents to teach their kids that God didn’t make their ears so that they could ignore instructions, but for positive things like hearing all kinds of noises and sounds, and especially to hear and obey God’s word.

    Not only will children be encouraged to follow Jesus’ example, but they’ll also be reassured that he loves us no matter what we do. He can forgive us when we fail and help us to change.

    This book is part of a series called Training Young Hearts, that addresses the attitudes of the heart that underpin behavior and explains how the gospel of grace enables us to change.

    Parents, teachers, and other loved ones can refer back to these resources when specific behaviors need both to be corrected and to be connected to forgiveness, grace and growth.

  • Message In The Moon

    $15.99

    This gorgeous picture book illustrates the unique relationship between children and their parents and how this special love connects them always, from near or far–from Emmy-nominated actress, producer, and New York Times bestselling author Roma Downey.

    Oh Moon, moon, moon that shines so bright.
    Please send this message far . . .
    So all will know that they are loved,
    No matter where they are.

    A Message in the Moon was inspired by Downey’s own story of losing her mother when she was just ten years old and the comfort her father brought her. Years later, when Downey left home for college, her father pointed to the full moon and told her, “Whenever you feel alone, always look into the night sky, and you’ll be reminded of how much I love you. I’ll leave a message for you in the moon.” That simple comfort remains with Downey today, and now she is passing it on to parents and children alike.

    Beautifully illustrated by New York Times bestselling artist Holly Hatam, A Message in the Moon features charming vignettes that show characters finding reassurance in the moon’s message. “Whether your child is going to their first sleepover, their first day of school, or their favorite stuffed animal is inexplicably gone, whether they are experiencing the loss of a goldfish, or a sibling has left for college, A Message in the Moon helps parents to explain the feeling of longing to their little ones,” Downey writes.

    With whimsical artwork and uplifting rhymes, A Message in the Moon is a perfect reminder for parents and children alike that they are never alone. They just need to look to the moon and remember that they are loved.

  • Boy Who Was Bold

    $14.99

    If there is one essential characteristic this generation of children needs, it’s boldness. More and more, kids will be seen as odd, weird, or strange if they choose to follow Jesus.
    However, this is not the first time in history that boldness has been required to serve God. After all, a young boy in first-century Nazareth perfectly displayed boldness: Jesus Christ Himself.

    In The Boy Who Was Bold, author Adam Griffin follows the theme of boldness throughout Jesus’s life and ministry. When twelve-year-old Jesus stood in the temple and taught God’s Word from scrolls, He started a domino effect of boldness that we read about throughout the Gospels. Jesus boldly proclaimed God’s Word and demonstrated kindness to the underserved and abused. He even boldly gave His life so we would have the opportunity to be bold with Him.

    In thirty-two magically illustrated pages, The Boy Who Was Bold tells and shows kids what Jesus’s boldness might have looked like so they can choose boldness in their own lives. Readers ages 4-8 will find the beauty in godly oddness and be empowered to follow Jesus courageously.
