In Before Amen best-selling author Max Lucado joins readers on a journey to the very heart of biblical prayer, offering hope for doubts and confidence even for prayer wimps. Distilling prayers in the Bible down to one pocket-sized prayer, Max reminds readers that prayer is not a privilege for the pious nor the art of a chosen few. Prayer is simply a heartfelt conversation between God and his child. Let the conversation begin. Study guide cost: $10

Whether through uncontrollable circumstances or the pain of personal relationships, everyone has experienced unforeseen changes in life. This study helps believers navigate detours that may take you through trials, injustice, and even betrayal. You will be comforted and encouraged when you learn to rest in God’s redemptive plan and the hope found in God’s sovereign will. Study guide cost: $10

This a book club style discussion of the book Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood.

This study focuses on your daily walk with the Lord through the experience of motherhood. By reflecting upon who God is, you can grow into the mother you want to become. During each of the eleven weeks of this Devotional Bible study, you will study a different truth about God and how growing into His image influences your children. As God makes an impact on your life as a mother, that imprint will make an impression on your child. Book cost: $10
