Book Blurb:

In the end, it will be okay because God is always with us. Whether we like it or not, growing up brings change. For many children, this conjures fears that are sometimes real and sometimes imagined. How can kids learn that even when they face new and unfamiliar situations, they don’t have to be afraid?

Little Seed and Little Fox are facing changes and brand new circumstances—and they don’t like it one bit! Through this unlikely friendship, children will discover that no matter how new or fearful their circumstances, God is always with them. The whimsical art by Natalia Moore will put a smile on kids’ faces and put their minds at ease. Just as Little Seed and Little Fox learn to trust that the Farmer is good and kind, children will also learn to trust God.

Impressions & Thoughts:

It Will Be Okay delivers reassurance and cuteness. This book will impact you like never before. If you were questioning on whether or not to purchase it, the answer is yes. It follows the story of a duo whom carry some fears and uncertainty, but they see the kindness of the Farmer and begin to reassure each other it will be okay. It is all too often we can’t see the beauty that is to come in the midst of strife and this book helps to teach reassurance and trust in God.

★★★★☆

Book Blurb:

The choices you make each and every day determine not only your relationship with God but also the quality of your marriage. The decisions you make today will determine the marriage you will have tomorrow.

In From This Day Forward, you will discover five commitments that will absolutely fail-proof your marriage:

  1. Seek God.
  2. Fight fair.
  3. Have fun.
  4. Stay pure, and
  5. Never give up.

If you and your spouse will earnestly commit to do all five of these things, you’ll discover a richer, deeper, more authentic relationship and a more rewarding, more passionate love life.

Don’t be a statistic. Don’t be average. Let’s get you the marriage you’ve always wanted. Starting right now—from this day forward.

Impressions & Thoughts:

This book is delivered to you by a committed couple. Although it is primarily written by Pastor Craig, this book includes Amy’s Angle on each chapter presented giving you insight from man and wife. Their book provides couples with practical and manageable advise to follow to lead a more fulfilling marriage.

From This Day Forward is determined to help your marriage. This book began as a series of sermons Craig presented at LifeChurch.tv. Sometimes we have a tendency to hold on to the past bringing it in to the present. Anyone out there guilty of that? But the past is the past and you can’t change it Craig reminds us. God can and will change your future if you allow. God has what it takes and what you need in your marriage. Will you seek The One with your two?

Craig Groeschel is the founding and senior pastor at LifeChurch.tv. Craig, his wife, and their six children live in Oklahoma where LifeChurch.tv began in 1996. He speaks frequently at conferences and has written several books.
