Wild at Heart

God designed men to be dangerous, says John Eldredge. Simply look at the dreams and desires written in the heart of every boy: To be a hero, to be a warrior, to live a life of adventure and risk. Sadly, most men abandon those dreams and desires--aided by a Christianity that feels like nothing more than pressure to be a nice guy. It is no wonder that many men avoid church, and those who go are often passive and bored to death. In this provocative book, Eldredge gives women a look inside the true heart of a man and gives men permission to be what God designed them to be--dangerous, passionate, alive, and free.


We don't usually identify with the author of a great story. Instead we bond with the hero and heroine-the ones that the story is about. We share in their heartaches and triumphs. We cheer their accomplishments and mourn their losses.

When we think about our own story, we may see God as the author-an omniscient and omnipotent cosmic mastermind-but fail to recognize Him as the central character. In Epic, a retelling of the gospel in four acts, John Eldredge invites us to revisit the drama of life, viewing God not only as the author but also as the lead actor, exploring His motives and His heart. Eldredge examines the power of story, the universal longing for a "plot" that makes sense deep inside us, our desire for a meaningful role to play, our love of books and movies, and how all of this points us to the gospel itself.

It's a story better than any fairy tale! Our human hearts are made for great drama, and the gospel, with its tragedy and grandeur, truly is epic.

Military and Soldiers-

Our commitment to the most important base a soldier will have is his family. Strengthening the marriage and giving the couple the right tools and knowledge is half the battle. A marriage that understands the blue print God laid out for it is much stronger. Out goal is to guide couples toward a closer walk with God and that will lead to a more intimate relationship with each other. Encouraging transparent communication with each other aids in the difficulties that can be encountered upon a returning veteran from combat.

Loving Your Military Man

In this ten-part study, Bea Fishback, whose husband was an Army officer who regularly disappeared for field maneuvers and TDYs, encourages military wives to love their husbands by applying the advice Paul gives in Philippians 4:8. By focusing on whatever is true, honorable, righteous, lovely, of good repute, excellent, and worthy of praise, Bea shows how to build lifelong marriages and strong, stable legacies.

Making Your Marriage Deployment Ready

Facing deployment can be a challenging time as the reality of separation sinks in. Many questions arise, and one of the biggest is: “Will my marriage be okay?” This six-session, small group study is designed to help you strengthen your marriage before deployment and bring you closer to each other and to God.

Authors Jim and Bea Fishback, with more than two decades of military experience, have written this five-week small group study. It will help you defend your most important home front--your family.

Love and War and Love by John and Staci Eldredge

LOVE & WAR shows couples how to fight for their love and happiness, calling men and women to step into the great adventure God has waiting for them together. Walking alongside John and Stasi Eldredge, every couple can discover how their individual journeys are growing into a story of meaning much greater than anything they could do or be on their own.

Love and Respect by Dr. Emerson E. Eggerichs

Five out of ten marriages today are ending in divorce because love alone is not enough. Yes, love is vital, especially for the wife, but what we have missed is the husband's need for respect. This Love and Respect message is about how the wife can fulfill her need to be loved by giving her husband what he needs -- respect. And the husband can fulfill his need to be respected by giving his wife what she needs -- love
