Spiritual Grit

Spiritual Grit

Why do some people thrive in the midst of great challenges and others don't? The answer is grit: the strength that fuels a scrappy response to threats, fear, confusion, and pain. But grit is more than a personal success tool. Without a passion for Jesus and practical ways to develop grit, it’s doomed to disappoint. Spiritual Grit seeks a better outcome by delving into why Jesus sometimes chooses to inject hardship into our lives rather than remove it. The book also includes: • Ways to access the strength needed to live a resilient life, through a dependent relationship with Jesus. • Biblical stories of those who grew a “grit backbone” through their interactions with Jesus. • An extensive menu of life habits that fertilize grit, plus a method for identifying habits that undermine it. • A way for readers to assess their own spiritual grit. Without Jesus, grit is little more than a gimmick. With Jesus, grit can infuse the world—and our lives—with hope.

Pierced The New Testament

Pierced The New Testament

The Bible is way more than a book--for so many, for so long, it's been the doorway into a new life full of meaning and adventure and freedom. But for so many students, the Bible is a daunting book. It seems intimidating and disconnected from their everyday life. Until now... In Pierced, students will discover a narrative version of the New Testament that reads more like a regular book, and is organized to make better sense. Every book is introduced by original artwork created by teenage artists. And every book includes the actual scribbled notes and highlights and questions that teenagers have written in their own Bibles. You get to join their conversation as you read, with space throughout to add your own voice. The story of Jesus is piercing, and will pierce you, as you follow his narrative all the way to his heart. Special Features: * Biblica's "Books of the Bible" approach to simplifying the New Testament narrative. * Original, student-produced artwork that serves as a thematic "on-ramp" to every book. * Actual journal notes, comments, and questions from teenagers' own Bibles scattered throughout. * Journaling space that completes the conversation. * A stripped-down design that takes away the intimidation factor in reading the Bible.

The Spiritual Child

The Spiritual Child

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.
