Growing up God's way for Boys is a colourful, fully illustrated book available as separate versions for boys and girls. It is intended for children approaching or experiencing puberty, typically represented by the 10-14 years old age range. The artwork haas been specially produced for the book and includes accurate biological drawings as well as 'cartoon' illustrations to keep the young reader interested. Most importantly of all, the Bible is the constant reference point, so that what the Bible has to say about the matters dealt with is always front and centre. The result is that this book conveys essential biblical ethical teaching as well as the facts about puberty. For example, here's an extract from the teaching on the chapter on 'Physical Intimacy' (in this case in the girls version): So special that God has given us rules It might seem attractive to live in a world where there are no laws. (Of course it would mean that your parents would never be able to tell you that you were doing something wrong!) But have you ever thought what would happen if there were no laws about how we should drive a car? The laws of the road make it safe for us to drive. If there were none, many more people on the road would get injured and driving would be a very frightening experience. God has given us a law regarding how we relate to the opposite sex in sexual intimacy. This law is the seventh of the Ten Commandments: 'You shall not commit adultery' (Exodus 20:14). From this verse and other passages in the Bible, we learn that all sexual activity outside marriage is wrong. The word adultery means either being married and experiencing sexual intimacy with someone who is not your husband, or experiencing sexual intimacy with someone else's husband. In the New Testament, God warns us to 'flee from sexual immorality' (1 Corinthians 6:18). The term 'sexual immorality' includes any sexual activity that is not between a husband and his wife. The fact that God has given us a specific command to keep sexual intimacy for marriage shows how important God considers sexual intimacy to be. The husband and wife are important to Him, their marriage is important to Him, and the new life that may result from sexual intimacy is important to Him. God's law about sexual intimacy is for our safety and well-being - it protects us, it protects marriage, and it protects young life.

Even her Mama asks, "Where does Ovidie get these ideas?" We can ask that, too, of this fine-spirited, industrious youngster growing up in an obscure mountain area of Norway in the late 1800s, on a centuries-old farm, with a seemingly unchanging centuries old lifestyle. For Ovidie’s hard-working parents, who have already raised three now-grown children, life is sufficient and good. So, what’s there to change? They are untiring as they provide for the family in a faith-based, self-contained environment. Theirs is a caring home, a home where everyone has a role and a goal. Ovidie is the youngest, a strong-willed and thoroughly adored child; she has her role and fulfills it with diligence. And, yes, indeed, she has a goal, too, although it’s her secret. Delightful to read and highly illustrated, this storybook is written as Ovidie lived—simply but with purpose. Enjoy the stories of Ovidie’s growing up eager, and let messages from Ovidie’s journey of life-lessons learned on the farm emerge from between the lines for reflection. Ponder the wonder of how we are influenced by the lives and decisions of our forbearers.

From Boys to Men

Acclaimed authors reflect on what it’s like to be gay and young, to be different, and to be aware of that difference from an early age. More than an anthology of coming out stories, From Boys to Men is a stunning collection of essays about what it is like to be gay and young, to be different and be aware of that difference from the earliest of ages. In these memoirs, coming out is less important than coming of age and coming to the realization that young gay people experience the world in ways quite unlike straight boys. Whether it is a fascination with soap opera, an intense sensitivity to their own difference, or an obsession with a certain part of the male anatomy, gay kids—or kids who would eventually identify as gay—have an indefinable but unmistakable gay sensibility. Sometimes the result is funny, sometimes it is harrowing, and often it is deeply moving. Essays by lauded writers like Alexander Chee (Edinburgh), Aaron Hamburger (Faith for Beginners), K. M. Soehnlein (The World of Normal Boys), Trebor Healey (Through It Came Bright Colors), Tom Dolby (The Trouble Boy), David Bahr, and Austin Bunn, are collected along with work from Michael McAllister, Jason Tougaw, Viet Dinh, and the popular blogger, Joe Jervis.
