November 26, 2013

Counting the days cover

By Trillia Newbell

We would like to invite you to walk through a new advent with us for the month of December. Each week we will post an excerpt from Counting the Days, Lighting the Candles by Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson.

Here is a description of the devotional via Amazon:

Of course we know that Christmas is about Jesus…So why is it that we miss seeing him in the midst of all the hustle and bustle? “Counting the Days, Lighting the Candles” is a Christmas Advent Devotional to help you and your family rejoice and rest in the holiday season. Beginning with December 1 and all through the month, you’ll find separate readings for adults and children for each day. Also included are 4 activity suggestions that will enhance your family’s experience of this blessed holiday season.

If you’d like to read along, you may purchase Counting the Days, Lighting the Candles through Check back each Monday in December as we walk through the advent season with Elyse Fitzpatrick and Jessica Thompson.

CBMW Gender & Sexuality Curriculum Male and Female He Created Them: A Study on Gender, Sexuality, & Marriage, by Denny Burk, Colin Smothers, & David Closson

This new curriculum is aimed at Christians who are facing challenging questions with the rise of LGBT ideology on topics like homosexuality, transgenderism, gender dysphoria, intersex conditions, preferred pronouns, and more. The study is broken down into eight chapters that guide readers through the Bible’s teaching on gender, sexuality, and marriage. Male & Female He Created Them gives Christians with a biblical foundation that starts in Genesis 1 and 2 with God’s good design in making mankind male and female in His image.

Male & Female He Created Them: A Study on Gender, Sexuality, & Marriage can be purchased online at Christian Book, Christian Focus, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble.
