Gifts to inspire faith in kids and teens
Childhood years are full of wonder and adventure as kids dream of growing up and experiencing the world. The teenage years, on the other hand, are almost always much more challenging as teens find themselves walking through a world that once seemed wonderful but is increasingly complicated. In the age of a global pandemic, young people need positive guidance more than ever.
That’s why I’m excited to tell you about our 2021 gift catalogue for kids and teens. It’s full of hand-picked, biblically based resources for every age. We review each product to ensure it will help build the faith of the kids and teens in your life.
While I recommend every item in the catalogue, here are a few I’d love to highlight for you.

Teens: Teen’s Guide to Face-to-Face Connections in a Screen-to-Screen World
Most teens enjoy screens, but they don’t want them hurting their relationships with the people who matter most. What if teens could improve their face-to-face relationships, develop deeper connections, resolve conflict, and confidently communicate with friends, parents, teachers, roommates, coworkers, potential employers and even the barista at the local coffee shop? What if they paused to think before they posted, avoiding the hurt and consequences that lead to regret? What if they became masters of their screen time instead of letting it master them? This book features 40 real-life realizations that’ll help them become more screen-wise.
Parents: Talking with Your Kids about Jesus
You already know the world will challenge your child’s faith in Jesus. This book will give you confidence to have the conversations that matter most in today’s skeptical world.

Each chapter clearly explains what skeptics are saying and provides a concise, easy-to-understand response you can discuss with your child – one that can be tailored to any age.
