Dating for Christians by Dr. Trina Boice and Cooper Boice – a baseball themed relationship guide

This book offers practical tips for men and women as they navigate the tricky dating world. The book is written by number one best-selling author Dr. Trina Boice and her son, a dating expert and dating app developer, Cooper Boice.

The COVID-19 pandemic is a test of our allegiance to the God we serve. Rosemarie Downer will engage you in a thought-provoking discussion of why some lost connection with God or declined spiritually during the COVID-19 restriction on congregate church gatherings.

April 2022 Release: Country Romance

Two lonely strangers, a fatherless child, and a snow storm.

Recipe for romance?

If Adele Marten’s troubled childhood taught her anything, it was that family is everything. So when the time comes to keep a promise she made to her dying friend, she knew she would do whatever it takes to reunite a father and son...who have never met. Even risk her fragile heart.

Hard-working single dad, Wyatt Sutton had his hands full raising twin girls and running a ranch, after his wife took off and left them. He’s been doing things on his own for a long time.

When a gorgeous stranger shows up on his doorstep with child she claims is his, Wyatt is thrown for a loop. A simple test can tell him what he already senses...the boy is his.

Too bad it’s not as easy to figure out his feelings for Adele. She’s everything he never knew he was missing, but she has plans—and he already has a family. They are his first priority no matter how beautiful she is.

With goodbye on the horizon, can Adele and Wyatt let go of the past to take a chance on a country romance?

Country Romance is the first book in the Millars Crossing Cowboys romance series. If you like heartfelt explorations of hope, picturesque rural settings, and emotional journeys, then you’ll adore Carolyne Aarsen’s latest sweet romance.

March 2022 Release: Weary, Come Home

Like a lot of folks in the rural South during the first half of the last century, I had what people today might think was an unusual name. But I don't mind.

Each word of my name is like a stepping stone that explains my life.

I was lost and found.

I was unnamed and claimed.

I was a tired and weary stranger....

And then I gained a home.
