    That proverbial talk about the “birds and the bees.” You know you need to do it. Teaching your children about God’s plan for sex and all the male/female interaction that leads up to it is part of what it means to bring up a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. And you want to do it – sort of. It’s just that it’s so very uncomfortable – and you don’t know what to say – and there might be questions asked that make you ashamed or guilty. . .  Dennis and Barbara Rainey (parents of six) of Family Life Ministries know you need “a plan” and they’ve provided a lovely one – a getaway weekend kit complete with instructions for you, guidelines for what to do, excellent speakers to get the difficult words out in the open by offering interesting audio sessions, an engaging format, a solid study of Biblical values, and enjoyable scripture songs.

      The goal of this program is to encourage and empower parents to discuss the difficult topics of intimacy, sexual behavior, and personal feelings that are facing their children as they enter the preteen years. To give parents the tools they need to both challenge their sons and daughters as they enter the pathway to Christian adulthood as well as provide the foundation for future discussions and sharing. To build a mentoring relationship with your children that continues past the weekend and into all the years leading up to adulthood.

      Preteen? Isn’t that jumping the gun a bit for the birds and the bees? Not in today’s culture. It’s literally everywhere around us – and now in ways unimagined by all previous generations. This program is designed to set the stage for a close parent/child relationship as the child moves into this period. Topics are handled biblically, carefully, and tastefully. Some topics are left optional for the parent.

      A weekend getaway. That’s the general setting. One child – with the parent all to himself (boys with fathers; girls with mothers) – doing an activity of his choice that he loves to do and spending time listening to “talks” and working through study material together. It’s a wonderful affirmation that the love of the parent can transcend the upcoming changes that the child will be experiencing.

      There are five audio sessions and one optional session: 1) the adolescent experience, 2) how to handle peer pressure, 3) changes that are ahead (God’s design for sex), 4) purity (protecting sexual innocence), and 5) dating (properly engaging with the opposite sex). The optional session covers really delicate issues (masturbation, pornography, and same-sex attraction) and can be inserted after the fourth session and before the fifth if the parent chooses,

      The Getaway Kit provides the necessary framework: a tour guide for the parent, travel journal for the preteen including 25 follow-up devotions, CDs containing 5 sessions, scripture memory songs and downloadable MP3s of all sessions.

      The Tour Guide is for the parent – basically a leader’s guide for this very focused Bible study. This little manual includes sections on planning the getaway, an itinerary for the weekend, a suggested schedule, preparation checklists (and needed supplies), guidelines for writing a note to your son/daughter, and very specific suggestions for praying for your son/daughter. Also included is a page-for-page reproduction of the Travel Journal (accent color rather than full color) so you can work through it with your son/daughter.

      The Travel Journal is for your son/daughter and is designed as a companion for the experiences of the weekend. With a travel theme and an engaging appearance, it provides a place to write notes (from the talks), thoughts, and answers to questions as well as the guidelines for godly Christian living provided by this study material. There are 25 follow-up devotions that continue with a similar theme and help strengthen the biblical core of the young adult’s understanding of the various issues. This is a nicely done keepsake book with a hardcover, full-color graphics, and an elastic strap for place-keeping.

      The CD Set provides the core material for the heart of the weekend and the program. Eight CDs provide the weekend talk sessions. These sessions feature scripture memory songs, dramatic vignettes, humorous features, real-life stories from teens and adults, and lots of teaching from parents and experts that have “been there, done that.” Songs are CCM-type of music with understandable lyrics, singable melodies, and full instrumentation backup.

      Having “that” talk with your children may never be entirely comfortable, but this kit gives you a plan; the certainty of godly, biblical content; and the promise of enjoyable memories.

    The good news is that, as Christians, we know how the story turns out - we win! The bad news is that, as Christians, we often have trials, some very unpleasant, along the way. Trial and Triumph: Stories from Church History presents 46 gripping stories of brothers and sisters in Christ who stood firm in the face of bitter persecution. The brief four to five page biographies of such greats as Polycarp, Tyndale, Luther, Calvin, William Carey and Hudson Taylor show what God can do through ordinary people who trust and obey Him. It is inspiring to read of these men and women who defied ungodly authority, whether in the church or in civil government, and stood on the Word of God.

    Polycarp was a leader in the early Christian church at Smyrna during a time of Roman persecution. When he was seized, Polycarp was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be fed to the lions; but he refused. He was told to swear an oath to Caesar or he would be burned at the stake; but he refused. As the flames were about to end his earthly life, he shouted out a prayer of praise to the Lord.

    Elizabeth was the beautiful daughter of the king of Hungary. She was filled with compassion for her people during a time of great famine. Against the wishes of the royal advisors, she emptied the grain bins and personally gave clothing and meals to the poor. After the death of her husband, Elizabeth was put out on the street. She continued to praise God for allowing her to serve the poor and began spinning wool to earn a living. When her father found out about her circumstances, he begged her to come back and share in his inheritance. But Elizabeth said that she had already received her inheritance from her Father in heaven, the eternal mercy of her Lord Jesus Christ. She served the poor until her death from a fever at age 24.

    This book is excellent material for family reading or individual inspiration. - Jerry

    After reading a great story with my boys, they always ask, "Is it a true story, Dad?". How about the true story of a Christian man who was reluctant to enter the army due to his religious convictions, but ended up capturing 25 machine gun batteries, 132 enemy soldiers, and became the most decorated soldier of World War I?

    This dramatic story is told by Alvin York himself. He recounts his life as a boy growing up in a poor family in north-central Tennessee, his wild years, and his acceptance of Jesus as Lord and the resulting transformation of his life. His lack of formal education shows in the "as written in his journal" format of the book, but, none-the-less, his writing gives you the "you are there" feeling. This is particularly true in the recounting of the battle in the Argonne Forest in France. Although this battle brought him fame, his humility also shows through; in fact, the official army account of the battle is also provided to show what a feat Sgt. York accomplished.

    After reading this book, our family traveled to Sgt. York's home-museum in Tennessee to see firsthand the things we read about. For Father's Day, my wife and boys also bought me the movie Sergeant York starring Gary Cooper. In case you haven't figured it out, we love this book! ~ Jerry

    This book on family relations and husband and wife roles is the joint effort of Grace and Wendell (Rob) Robley. Rob and Grace teach and minister to families as a husband/wife team. It was that ministry that provided the material for this book. The cover of the book looks like it came right out of Leave It to Beaver, so you might expect a "husband is always in charge of the wife" attitude, but the Robley's take the attitude of equality under God. In the Holy Spirit of equality, Grace and Rob each write a chapter on four topics: God's Plan for Husbands and Wives; Charismatic Relationships; Charismatic Confrontations; and Charismatic Redemption. This small-format book has about 130 pages of meat in it, so it won't take long to read. But lengthy discussion is possible after reading each pair of chapters, as the book also contains a few "Searching Questions" such as "Is there favoritism in your family?" The practical advice, Bible references, and requests for the leading of the Holy Spirit should help you in your family's walk with the Lord. sc, 157 pgs.

    Twelve-year-old Tirzah and her family are slaves in Egypt. Under the tyranny of Pharaoh, they must make mud bricks without straw, so Tirzah cuts grass for her father and brother. Seeing this makes the Egyptian guards angry, and they crack their whips to make the people work harder. "If only my people could escape," Tirzah thinks to herself. If only Moses could persuade Pharaoh to let them go. Their only hope is that Yahweh, the Lord God, will hear their prayers and rescue them from the cruelty of Egypt. Paperback, 160 pages. ~ Rachel P.

    For a more in-depth course in poetic appreciation and understanding, turn to these units which contain and analyze some of the best poetry from the late Middle Ages through the 19th (Classical) or early 20th (Traditional) century. The poems used are printed right in the loose-leaf text and include works from such notable authors as William Shakespeare, John Keats, Christopher Marlowe, John Donne, John Milton, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, Walt Whitman, Emily Dickinson, and others. Both units begin with a study of "The Ballad", though more attention is given to this form in the Traditional Poetry unit, which also contains a Nursery Rhymes section. The basic organization of Classical Poetry is by "Age" (Elizabethan, Seventeenth Century, Restoration and Eighteenth Century, Romantic, Victorian, and Nineteenth Century) with a discussion about that era and the style of poetry characterizing it. Biographical information about each poet is included, along with a blackline "portrait." After the first two units in Traditional Poetry, that book is organized by poet and also includes biographical information and a portrait for each. Activities follow the poetry. These range from interpretational to a study of poetic devices and are very well-contrived, with ample explanation and background information. Concluding each unit are activities for essay and discussion centering around themes in the poems or asking students to compare or contrast aspects of two or more of the poems. These are excellent units; my only quibble is the lack of a teacher key to evaluate student responses. If you do this study along with your child, this shouldn't be much of a deterrent.
