What are your plans for the summer? Whether you’re at the beach, beside a hotel pool or relaxing in your favourite nook at home, summer is a great time to grab a book and enjoy a good read. I love that Focus on the Family Canada always has such a wide selection of books, audio books and magazines.

Here are a few new offerings for you and your family to enjoy over the summer months.


Signals: How Brain Science and the Bible Help Parents Raise Resilient Children
While we can’t see the brain, it sends signals to us and to those around us. Just as the colours of a traffic light send drivers a signal to go, slow down or stop, our brains signal to our emotions and affect our behaviour toward others. This book offers a simple, relational approach to help you become aware of your emotions, their impact on others, and how to implement this technique in your home, school or ministry.

Unlikely Fighter
Greg Stier was raised in a family of bodybuilding, tobacco-chewing, fist-fighting thugs. He never knew his biological father because his mom had met his dad at a party; she got pregnant, and he left town. Though his mom almost aborted him, in a last-minute twist, Greg’s life was spared for so much more. Unlikely Fighter is the incredible story of how God showed up in Greg’s life – and how he can show up in yours as well. This is a memoir of violence and mayhem – and how God can transform everything.
