Description : Parenting strategies you can be proud of You know the feeling. You got frustrated, desperate, or overwhelmed and you reacted before you could think it through. Whether it’s a one-time thing or it becomes a habit, we all parent in ways we don’t like. But it doesn’t have to continue. Whether it’s bribery, yelling, counting to three, or threats of punishment you didn’t mean to make, reacting never feels good. But if you can learn to act with intentionality, you’ll feel better about your choices and be grateful for the results. Dr. Kathy Koch (pronounced “cook”), author of Screens and Teens and 8 Great Smarts, will teach you proven strategies for training your child’s heart and parenting in a way that honors God. She’ll help you move your child from, “I can’t, I won’t," to “I can, I will, and I did.” We can do better than “Because I said so.” or “No screen time for 3 days.” We can do better than mere behavior modification. We can change our children’s hearts and teach them to do what is good, godly, and right even when we’re not around. Once you’ve learned to put these motivation strategies in place there’s no more need to nag, you’ll be astounded at what your kids will do without being asked. Dr. Kathy doesn’t offer a quick-fix. Starting with the heart is all about changing what children believe in order to change their behavior. And learning to use this kind of motivation takes effort, consistency, and strategy, but it works. And it’s never too late! If you’re willing to commit to a little hard work up front, you’ll enjoy your kids, your life, and yourself much more when you learn to start with the heart.

Description : This book contains over twenty-eight different types of poetry, with explanations and examples of each type. Many of my poems are romantic, such as My Beloved, Ode to Melissa, To Love a Woman, My Hearts Desire, Love, and My Love. While others are inspirational, like Forgiveness, Hope, The Seven Virtues, Empathy, and Kindness. Still others are philosophical in nature, such as my poems Living, True Freedom, Who Knows What Tomorrow Brings, and The State of the Economy. My kyrielle poem Life could be said to be both inspirational and philosophical. Some of my poems are educational, like The Benefits of Reading, which extols the virtues of reading, and To Be Young Again, which talks about nutrition and exercise. Some are family-oriented poems, such as my poem Little Bit, which I wrote for my niece Kristin, or Camping with Younger Brother, which I wrote for my brother Craig, or Little Child, which I wrote for all the little ones in the world. Other poems are devoted to naturelike my Froggy, Turtle, Tornado, and Mother Nature poemsor to mankind in general, such as Earth on Which We Live and True Happiness. And others were written with some fun in mind, like the poem Nude I wrote in response to an online contest to rhyme the last word in each line with the word nude. (Birthday Lesson is another fun poem like this.) I also did a series of seven poems on each of the seven deadly sins, where I used archaic language to spoof each of these sins, which unfortunately often plague mankind. I truly hope you will enjoy reading the poems contained in this book.

Description : “If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” (John 14:7) Jesus is the great stumbling block of faith. It is in him that Christianity finds its uniqueness among the religions of the world. He is the Incarnate Son of God, the unique revelation of the Father. Yet so often, we begin the process of theological formulation not with the person of Jesus, but rather, with philosophical arguments about God’s existence and logical constructions to determine God’s nature. How would our understanding be affected if we instead took Jesus as our starting point for doing theology? In Let’s Start with Jesus, respected biblical scholar Dennis Kinlaw explores this question, revealing answers that are profound. In seeking to describe the nature of the relationship God desires with us, he explores three metaphors—royal/legal, familial, and nuptial—which serve as motifs for his reflection. Taking familiar theological categories, Kinlaw views them through the primary lens of the person and work of Jesus, and finds that Jesus reveals rich pictures of the nature of God, the nature of personhood, the problem of sin, the way of salvation, and finally, the means of sanctification via perfect love. The distilled wisdom of one of this generation’s greatest thinkers. Dr. Kinlaw leads you deep into the inner sanctuary of the Holy Trinity and shows you three distinct persons relating to each other in pure reciprocal love. —Robert E. Coleman, Distinguished Professor of Evangelism and Discipleship, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary Every time I read something written by Dennis Kinlaw my mind is stimulated and my heart strangely warmed. Let’s Start with Jesus is another important book from a truly gifted man. —Lyle W. Dorsett, Billy Graham Professor of Evangelism, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University Kinlaw’s revolutionary approach to doing theology is much more than that—it’s a revolutionary approach to life. Kinlaw locates ultimate purpose in a place the church has almost totally neglected, and he does so graciously, with powerful, tightly reasoned biblical argumentation.
