    One of the most popular card games of the last decade, Citadels is a unique role-based building game. Each player begins with 2 gold and 4 cards for building. 8 “role” cards are available each game, each with a special ability. Each player selects a role. The lowest-ranked player goes first, revealing a card and using the special ability. Then the player gathers resources (gold or district cards) and “builds” a card if he has enough money. Some roles directly affect other players, causing them to lose turns or money, while others provide monetary benefits. Since every character ranked higher than you is hidden, you can never be quite sure who picked what roles! This adds a very intense psychological aspect to the game as players attempt to predict what others will do as they slowly build their cities. The game ends when 8 buildings have been built, and final scoring takes place. Unique buildings and 24 characters allow for almost endless replayability! This definitive version includes the expansion, 9 new characters, and 12 new district buildings. For 2-8 players; 30-60 minutes. Note that witches and various magical / fantasy elements are involved.

     This felt like a book of reminders to do those things we often forget to do with/for our children because we get too busy with life: slow down, pay attention, remember that your word choices matter, look for the positive, and get to know your kids as individuals. We can all use some perspective and encouragement from time to time. Dr. Todd Cartmell gives real life examples, of the good and bad, in 5 short chapters – because parents get busy! Take a little time for yourself and read something that will benefit everyone in the house. You can even take an online assessment to see areas where you can make improvement.

    When reading any book, and particularly one on parenting, you want to know that the author knows what he is talking about. John Rosemond has all the bases covered here: the education, the real world experience, the heart, and he and his wife have raised two kids of their own. As he puts it, he is “not a Christian psychologist,” but “a Christian who holds a license to practice psychology.” John was the rare person in his field who did not follow the latest fad in psychology, which he found increasingly baseless. Instead, he taught common sense, time-tested, Biblical methods of parenting because they tend to work well.

    After sufficiently hammering home the point in the first four chapters that much of the advice coming from the professional psychology community on parenting is without merit, John gets into what does work. Marriage is foundational to the family, and the husband and wife’s relationship with each other must be kept strong, with relationships to the children being secondary. Parents need to be of one mind in their child-rearing methods. Folly is bound up in the heart of a child; it is the parent’s job to set the child straight and instill humility. Have a vision for the success of the child. Increase the amount of responsibility given to the child as he matures. Discipline, including punishment, is necessary to instill obedience. Let your yes be your yes and your no be your no.

    There, I’ve given you the essence of the book, but the author makes the case so much more fluently. Dr. Kevin Leman sums it up: “This is the best commonsense guide to parenting I’ve read in a long time.

    Starline's general psych course summarizes the major theories, concepts and treatment approaches in the field of psychology. Upon completion, your student will have a good basic understanding of the field. Set includes 10 consumable student worktexts, each with a quiz in the back, and a separate spiral-bound answer key. Students can certainly work independently with a parent administering the exams. The text is not overly complicated and could be appropriate for a younger high-schooler in my opinion. The booklets get more challenging as you work through the course, and students are exposed to the vocabulary terms used in the field. Each booklet is 27-41pp, Score key is 74pp, pb. ~Sara

    The statistics are frightening: 5.4 million children in the U.S. have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD according to the CDC and diagnosed cases are increasing at an alarming rate - nearly 6% per year. But this is not the only issue plaguing our children today. Many of them also battle focusing issues which may be overlooked in light of their overwhelming attention problems or behavior issues. Regardless of the picture presented, as parents we really want to know if our children's struggles stem from biological or psychological problems (or a combination of both), and what resources are available to equip us to help them.

    Drawing from multiple sources including research, input from various physicians and her own personal experience, Dianne Craft takes us on a fast-paced journey into the realm of alternative natural supplements in an effort to better care for children with attention, focusing and behavior issues.

    Working from the core belief that the body desires to be healthy and can heal itself with the proper nutrients, Dianne presents an incremental, eight-week nutritional supplement plan along with rationales, common signs of deficiencies and additional recommended resources. These supplements are not necessarily replacements for medication and families should consult with their personal physician before implementing the suggested regimen of supplements. Dianne puts forth that many children are able to reduce prescribed psychotropic meds as the body heals. Although the information presented here is not designed to replace your primary care physician, if you are one of many families who have not begun prescription therapy to treat your child's focus/attention/behavior issues, you may find the natural therapies presented to be effective in reducing the troubling symptoms. Audio CD with study notes and instruction card for nutritional intervention. 2 ½ hours. Deanne

    Having studied psychology and counseling, I am pleased that a book like this one is available for young children. The story is told of a young girl who watches her dog Lulu get old. Understanding that Lulu will soon pass away, the girl is saddened, while at the same time, her parents give her all the support she needs. One day, Lulu passes away. As the girl goes on with her life, she continues to mourn the loss of Lulu. Then one day, she finds a new friend. This book is great for helping children deal with the loss of their pets, and even with the loss of friends and family. Author Corinne Demas accurately portrays the emotions leading up to the loss, and the grief period afterwards. The parents help their daughter deal with her emotions by being there for her—and not saying a whole lot, but being there—and identifying with her emotions, namely reminiscing with photographs. A healthy amount of time passes before the family finds a new puppy. This is a perfect book for children going through grief, as they see someone going through the same issues with which they can relate. Pb. – John

    This classic social novel was first published in 1912 and relates the events in the life of a man with mixed ethnicity. He tries to "pass for white" to make his life easier and more successful. He travels from the rural South to the urban North and even to Europe, all the time observing social happenings and injustices, and fighting his own battle to discover and express his identity. This is a must-read for those interesting in the psychological issues fair-skinned African Americans deal with and the class system in the early 1900s.

    This classic by C.S. Lewis shares his views on the education of older students (and how educators of his day were leading students down a dangerous path), and uses that as a starting point to stress the importance of good values, courage, and honor in our society. He warns of the consequences of an education or social thinking that undermines the importance of good values and treats everything as relative. He states that some things are in fact objective (they are without doubt good or evil) and criticizes the way society is trying to rationalize the diminishment of the belief in natural values. Finally he warns of a future in which the values and morals of the majority are controlled by a small group of people who rule by a perfect understanding of psychology. One of most debated of Lewis's work, this book stresses that above all else, people should be taught to love good and hate evil. 114 pages, softcover. ~ Rachel

    If you've ever wondered whether anything you do will make a difference, read this book. Dr. Caroline Leaf has written a book that can help you live a healthier and happier life. Based on her work with brain-damaged clients, it reveals a Biblically-based system of focusing and renewing your thoughts that can help you detox and retrain your brain. Whether your problems are physical or psychological, her 5-step program will show you how to literally rewire your brain and align itself with your mind. She teaches us about neuroplasticity - the ability of the mind to change your brain Your brain literally can be transformed (the renewing of your mind) in about 63 days A dedicated scientist and Christ-follower, Dr. Leaf merges neurological scientific discovery seamlessly with the Word and presents fascinating and life-changing evidence that we can use to re-orient and correct our brains. Here are a just a few quotes from that book:

    • • The process of thinking and choosing is the most powerful thing in the universe after God, and it is a phenomenal gift from God to be treasured and used properly.
    • • The law of entanglement in quantum physics states that relationship is the defining characteristic of everything in space and time… …Everything and everyone is linked, and we all affect each other.
    • • You are not a victim of your biology; you can control your reactions to events and circumstances
    • • To detox your thought life, you need to remember it's your thinking that will actually change your brain
    • • …God was so serious about us capturing our thoughts and renewing our minds that he gave us science as encouragement.
    • • When you understand the power of your thought life, [….], you truly begin to get a glimpse of how important it is to take responsibility for what you are thinking.

    There is a lot of amazing material here, both scientifically and experientially. Written for the lay person, she explains the latest discoveries about the brain in an understandable and interesting way. The first section of the book delves into the eight "keys" on which her program is based. She explains how the brain works, how your mind can control matter, how your choices impact your brain, how you can "take thoughts captive", why "milkshake-multitasking" is not good for you, why your mind needs directed rest, why you are not a victim of genetics and your environment, and more. The rest of the book explains the daily 5-step detox process in detail and helps you get started. Summaries of key points at the end of each chapter are helpful both for reinforcement and later reference.

    If you are feeling burdened by your past, uncertain about yourself, fearful about the future, or in an emotionally hopeless situation, this book could change your life.

    The resurrection of Jesus Christ is a foundational truth of Christianity. As such, it is important for us to be equipped to defend the historicity of this event, both to strengthen our own faith as well as to clearly share the truth with others. This book and interactive CD, a collaborative effort by Gary Habermas and Michael Licona, recognized experts on the topic of the resurrection, provide a comprehensive defense of the evidence of Christ's physical resurrection and prepares you to use that information to confidently share your faith with others. The authors begin with a focus on sharing your faith with a discussion on using evidence in sharing the gospel, the importance of the resurrection to Christian faith, and an overview of the principals used by historians to assess credibility of historical accounts. Part two turns to the evidence for Jesus' resurrection, using a "minimal facts approach," which offers a detailed look at five facts that build a simple, yet strong case for the resurrection. Opposing theories are addressed in section three. As the authors explain under the "minimal facts approach," these theories must address the five established facts in order to be logical explanations. Following this method, they analyze a number of major opposing theories, including arguments by naturalists, psychologically based theories, and legend and lie theories among many others, detailing each and its refutation in turn. The chapters in section four bring up other issues that skeptics may bring up and how to address them, such as the nature of Jesus' resurrection body, who Jesus claimed to be, and the existence of God himself, among others. The final chapter in this section offers advice on how to effectively communicate with others. In between reading the wealth of information contained in each section, open up the included interactive CD to take some fun, practical quizzes that will test your understanding of the material. For further reference, the appendix contains a detailed outline of the arguments, further notes on items referred to in the main text (denoted by subscript numbers in each chapter), and a bibliography. 352 pages. ~ Steph

    If I could express the essence of this enlightened book in one phrase it would be to quote the author, Mona Brookes (internationally acclaimed art educator and founder of Monart Drawing School): “designed to encourage you to draw for yourself.” The title says it all and is ideal for teens and adult beginners who want to enjoy drawing, learn fundamentals and discover their true potential. Brookes’ style is not a step-by-step project book or for those wanting to be a professional artist, but a psychological exploration of your inner mind and feelings mixed with pure enthusiasm. The book’s drawings and examples are a progression of students’ artwork as they work through her method of teaching—they were either terrified of drawing, had very basic skills or never could draw the way they wanted. The book is very copy heavy, but easy to read. It does a wonderful job of exploring various drawing media, as well as explaining styles—abstraction, flat, realistic, perspective—and helps the new artist develop a style their own. The book has a helpful list of basic supplies to get started and optional list for further exploration. Each concept presented is followed by a project with instructions, so you read and then apply. The book should be used in progression from start to finish as each concept builds on the next. There is value to glean from this book even if you only have time to read without doing the projects. 250 pgs, 7.5” x 9” pb. ~ Emily

    This book states that "studying is an art that has to be learned, practiced, and refined." This is particularly true at the college level. Larger classroom settings, less one-on-one interaction with the teacher, and the lecture style of teaching are just some of the adjustments students may need to become accustomed to. This book recognizes that students prefer varying learning styles and that different study techniques may be necessary for different subjects. The suggested study techniques are just that, suggestions. You need not try all the methods covered, simply select the ones that apply to you. Recommended techniques on how to study are provided for lecture classes (such as history, sociology, psychology, etc) as well as science, math, and foreign language courses.

    The complete title of this book is How to Study and Other Skills for Success in College. It is intended to provide insight on not only how to study at the college level but also focuses on other skills for college success. Detailed chapters cover such topics as getting the most out of the classroom experience, the art of reading, preparing for and taking examinations, writing papers, and getting help when needed. Information on what to expect at college in terms of living arrangements, academic demands, social pressures, parental pressures, and financial pressures is also included. Although this book was not specifically written with home schoolers in mind, the advice is pertinent for all who seek this level of education. Enh

    Although I never had psychology in high school, at least one introductory psychology class is required at most every college or university. This product would have provided a solid foundation for those classes. Many different areas of psychology are touched upon with a general introduction to psychology, psychological methods, biology and behavior, basic mental processes, motivation, personality, human development, abnormal psychology, and psychotherapy. While there may be some controversial ideas and you may not agree with certain psychological theories, the purpose of this book is just to help students understand psychology as a field today, to see how it is accomplished, and to discover what different psychologists have thought and learned as the field has developed. Each chapter concludes with some question, activities, and a "Test Your Knowledge" section. An answer key and glossary of terms are provided in the back of the book. The material is presented in an interesting and understandable manner. ~ Megan
