Word Up!: Language in the Key of Life

THE MARK-ALAN 100-WORD CHILDREN’S RHYMING BOOK SERIES IS SPECTACULAR!

WORD UP! IS VOLUME I OF IV featuring 25 spectacular rhyming stories for children that promote and support reading proficiency, language, and literacy development. These skills prepare children ages 0–9 for 3rd grade reading readiness. Did you know that the American prison industry can predict future inmates based on a child’s 3rd grade reading level?

The Mark-Alan 100-WORD book series is backed by evidence-based research and includes child-friendly definitions in English and Spanish.

These stories have the creative vibes of classics that will be enjoyed in homes and classrooms for generations. Moreover, the educational, entertainment, cultural, emotional, and spiritual values of the Mark-Alan 100-WORD children’s rhyming book series confirms that Word Up! is a win for children, a win for families, a win for education, a win for society, and a loss for the American prison industry.

Kohta Circus: A Few More Poems by John Scott Brinkerhoff

These are more than stories

...because the stories that creatures, places, and seasons tell regenerate each day. A true storyteller's inspiration is boundless, and the opportunity to communicate with people through the world around us is the poet's reward.

Sometimes subtle and lilting, sometimes eloquently tumbling forth, Kohta Circus is a collection filled with Chicago in the spring, children laughing in the grass, a stumbling heart and a traveler's footsteps. The stories you may not have heard before. The voices you know by heart.

Intentional Manhood: A Coach's Perspective

Although we hear repeatedly that we should live as Godly men, rarely are we taught what actionable steps we can take to honor Jesus, or frankly, what “manhood” even means. So we drift through life and never reach our full potential. Intentional Manhood is told with the authority and no-excuses attitude that come from Coach Mike Stanley’s 50 years as a coach, combined with the compassion and relatability of his perspective as a man acutely aware of his own flaws. Within these pages Coach Stanley will:

• Encourage you to find your Goal, Guide, and Game Plan for life.
• Inspire you to fulfill your Unique Calling to provide for and protect your family.
• Help you See Clearly the Sacred Mission you have been entrusted with by Almighty God Himself.
• Reinforce the truth that no one can live as an Intentional Man without the power of the Holy Spirit.

Tales from the 4th Grade: 75 Short Stories

Step into the imagination of a fourth-grader...

The stories within this book were written and illustrated by Megan Fluhart when she was in fourth grade. Then 17 years later, her dad, Doug Fluhart, edited and compiled them into this book.

The resulting collection of short stories and illustrations is a fantastical window into the mind of a kid. Often hilarious, always wildly imaginative, this book will delight kids of all ages (and parents too!) with the creativity of one fourth-grader's storytelling.

A Call to Service: My Journey to the Ministry

This book was written to give readers a glimpse into my journey to the ministry and the challenges and lessons I learned along the way. Many organizations and individuals rose up to try to block my path, and I faced hardships I thought I couldn't endure. I'm living proof that God uses these roadblocks to get us to move according to His plan.

It is my hope that my experiences will speak to those who are considering starting a church, becoming a pastor or minister, or taking part in any other work for Christ. But most importantly, this book is a testimony to the power of Christ. Whether you are called to ministry or not, may this book inspire you to take the leap and do what your heart is calling you to do. I pray that these words will stoke the embers that God has placed in your spirit and pull you closer to Him.

Despite what traditional religious gatekeepers profess, your background and worldly stature aren't important compared to what you hold in your heart for Jesus. God's words are more powerful than man-made titles and status symbols.

No matter what lies ahead on your journey, no matter what path led you to this point, answer God's call and He will take you just as you are.

Ma'Kai! Where Are Your Glasses?

We are excited to congratulate Minyon Patton on the release of their new book, Ma'Kai! Where Are Your Glasses?

For many of us, getting glasses is a fun opportunity in accessorizing, but for children it can be traumatic. It's not only a loss of control over how they look, but glasses can make a child stand out to classmates. Feeling vulnerable and becoming subject to teasing are just a few of the challenges that children may face with this change.

Ma'Kai! Where Are Your Glasses? is the heartwarming story of a boy who is anxious about needing to wear glasses and worried about what his friends will think. Thanks to his friend Milla's reassurance and the acceptance of his classmates, Ma'Kai discovers that change can be a good thing and that true friends will always support you for who you are.

Guardian Redeemed: Perfect Place to Be (1) (The Chikondra Trilogy)

As Guardian Redeemed introduces the critically acclaimed Chikondra Trilogy, cryptic signs emerge that hint at mysteries to be revealed within the whispers of unfolding time.

The project to gain Earth's ratification into the Dil-Terra Interplanetary Alliance has stalled. Doubts assail renowned Chikondran diplomat, Minister Warnach Sirinoya, when he meets Sandra Warner, the young Terran administrative specialist assigned to help steer the massive project back on course. Never could he have imagined their first rocky encounter would alter the direction of his life, ushering him from private turmoil and personal disgrace. Neither could he have dreamed that she would inexplicably draw him into legendary mysteries on his own world.

Sandra Warner strives to prove herself while refusing to allow her family's disapproval or tragic events to derail her goal of building a diplomatic career. Intelligent, driven, and sensitive, she surprisingly finds empathy with the difficult Minister Sirinoya.

Two people from different planets and dramatically diverse backgrounds balance unexpected turns in their relationship with family issues, cultural differences, demanding careers, lofty dreams, and personal sorrows. Those dynamics are woven into a fascinating tapestry of fear and conflict, triumph and love.
