You Are Meant to Be a Mentor You probably have more "friends" than ever--once you tally up all your social networking connections. But virtual relationships alone can't meet the Church's desperate need for spiritually mature women and men to mentor younger believers to be faithful servants of Christ. If you are like many believers, you may not feel prepared to be a trusted influencer because you haven't had a spiritual mother or father yourself. The Cry for Spiritual Mothers and Fathers, written by seasoned disciple and Christian leadership trainer Larry Kreider, will give you the proven biblical keys you need to become a godly mentor. Discover why spiritual mother- and fatherhood is every believer's calling, and find out how to nurture a spiritual family that expands the kingdom of God. This is the essential handbook for answering God's call to become the spiritual father or mother He has called you to be.

Our morally deteriorating culture has forgotten God’s goodness to its own peril. Will the next generation even know God? The very survival of the Christian faith depends on creating a culture of God-memories that must start now! Today’s culture is quickly forgetting the goodness and power of God. The Bible describes the potential destruction through all generations to people who forget God. The dangers are paramount. If we don’t remember what God has already done, we won’t believe what he is capable of doing in the future. Memory builds faith. Forsaken God explores biblical examples of forgetting God as God repeatedly pleads for his people to remember his mighty acts and deeds. As you read this captivating book, you will have an opportunity to recall your own memories of God and learn new ways to remember God’s goodness and the power of sharing those memories with the next generation. The author and other contributors share open and honest stories of forgetting God’s goodness and offer ways that help them to remember.

In The Spiritual Child, psychologist Lisa Miller presents the next big idea in psychology: the science and the power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality: * are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances * are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers * are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex * have significantly more positive markers for thriving including an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success. Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical psychologist to illustrate just how invaluable spirituality is to a child's mental and physical health, Miller translates these findings into practical advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop and encourage their children's—as well as their own—well-being. In this provocative, conversation-starting book, Dr. Miller presents us with a pioneering new way to think about parenting our modern youth.

We are experiencing a mentoring crisis today. One key reason is that too many women cling to an outdated formulaic idea of what mentoring is all about. When we hear the word "mentoring" we conjure up a picture that fit our experience decades ago. Then we look in the mirror and don't see an adequate mentor staring back at us. Our preconceived ideas about what today's young women want in a mentor convince us we are not qualified to be mentors--but we are wrong. What we don't realize is that younger women today are far more likely to want a relationship with that woman in the mirror than the conjured-up perfect mentor in our head. Organic Mentoringexplores foundational issues that explain why beloved but outdated mentoring methods are no longer effective. The book looks at the cultural changes and fast-paced digital advancements that shape young thought and behavior but weaken the link between generations. It walks through the new values, preferences, ideas, and problems of the next generation and how these issues impact mentoring. Then the authors guide the reader through landmines to avoid and approaches that work today.

How the Church Can Respond to the Rising Epidemic of a Fatherless Generation The number of children being raised without a father or mother has hit epic proportions the world over. The physical and emotional consequences of this are staggering; the spiritual ramifications, devastating. Billy Wilson, pastor and TV host, knows that believers are uniquely equipped to help these young people, to bring them healing and ultimate reconciliation. Through sharing his own story of abandonment and wounding, Wilson shows that when this desperate cry for a father meets the cry of the Father, blessings and revival will be unleashed into all generations. With biblical examples and keen insight, he reveals how older and younger generations can come together, reclaim what was lost, and turn the pain of parental wounding into a place of supernatural intimacy and ministry to others.

We have visualized Jesus as CEO, as environmentalist, and even thought about what His politics might have been. But in reality, in history, regardless of religious beliefs, Jesus is the greatest mentor of all time. The handful of disciples He coached became totally committed to His mission, worked together as an effective team, and through their efforts, one-third of the world's population follows what Jesus taught. From eleven people to two billion people- now that's effective mentoring.
