  • Smells Like Bacon

    $25.95

    The guys who together form the popular comedy duo The Skit Guys, take their distinct brand of humor and apply it to a guide on how to make and keep friends and why it matters for a life of faith and laughs.

    Tommy Woodard and Eddie James, the men who form the widely popular comedy duo The Skit Guys, have been best friends since high school. With encouragement and guidance from their youth pastor, the guys started to write and perform skits for their youth group. Since their high-school days, they’ve been writing and performing hilarious and poignant skits live around the world and on camera, as well as on their site, SkitGuys.com. Everywhere they go, the question people always ask them is, How did you guys get to be and figure out how to stay friends?

    Now, this offbeat duo is coming together to present Smells Like Bacon: The Skit Guys Guide to Lifelong Friendships, a book about the power of friendships and how to build the kind of friendships that last. Written in the signature hilarity of a Skit Guys dialogue–with well-placed banter or two sprinkled in for good measure–Smells Like Bacon explores:

    *Who needs friends?
    *Let’s-Dig-in-the-Dirt Friends
    *Awkward things not to say to potential friends
    *Crying at the movie Beaches
    *How to be a good friend;
    *What to look for in friends–and what to avoid;
    *How to handle difficult situations in friendship; and
    *Why God makes a great friend
    *And fun and random stories, and of course, bacon references

    Tommy and Eddie have traveled the world performing for families at events, churches, and conferences. Their SkitGuys.com website has grown into a treasured media resource for families, pastors and churches. Their numerous short films, skits, and scripts are used to reach families all over the world. When The Skit Guys aren’t performing or shooting new short films, both Tommy and Eddie serve in their local churches, enjoy good food (especially pizza and fries!), and love life with their families.

  • Art Of Friendship

    $14.99

    In this age of limitless digital connections, we are somehow lonelier than ever. This isn’t just bad news–it’s dangerous news. Loneliness puts us at greater health risk than smoking or obesity, but we would sooner label ourselves overweight than admit we are lonely. It is a secret that is killing us.

    Contrary to all our efforts, the answer is not found in more connections, but deeper ones that mirror God himself as the originator of friendship and the original Friend. The Art of Friendship walks with you into a greater understanding of how God has equipped you to be a friend and to have meaningful friendships. With step-by-step guidance, you will begin to strategize how to fulfill your divine calling as a friend. And through God’s Word, as you come to understand the depth and width and breadth of God as Friend, you will discover that the spiritual discipline of friendship is both life-changing and life-giving.

    Very few people enjoy the warmth and solidarity of friendship during their lives. Some reach adulthood without having the enriching experience of having friends; those people who heal our souls because they are our shoulders to cry and comrades to celebrate.

    During an interview, Otoniel Font was asked what he would do differently in his youth if he could go back. He replied that he would have cultivated friendship more, and commented on the importance of having friends. A few months later, on his wife’s birthday, a friend of his spoke emotionally to the guests about the value of friendship. That settled deep in him. It was the moment when he decided to write and share the great benefits that friendship gives us, among others: greater longevity, better health, resilience, sense of belonging and purpose, and the healing of the heart in the face of adversities and disappointments of life. Learn to choose and to appreciate your friends, and take advantage of the lessons in this new book that marks a scoop in the literary style of Otoniel Font.

  • Friendish : Reclaiming Real Friendship In A Culture Of Confusion

    $17.99

    Bible teacher Kelly Needham debunks our world’s constricted, small view of friendship and casts a richer, more life-giving, biblical vision for friendship as God meant it to be.

    As the family unit grows more unstable and the average age of marriage increases, a shift is taking place in our culture: for many people, friends now play the role of family. And just as with family relationships, our friendships often don’t turn out quite as we envisioned or hoped, and we wonder, Is there a better way to do this?

    In Friend-ish, Kelly Needham takes a close look at what Scripture says about friendship. She reveals the distorted view most of us have of it and recasts a glorious vision for a Christian understanding. By teaching us how to recognize symptoms of idolatry and dependency, she equips us to understand and address the problems that arise in friendship–from neediness to discord and even sexual temptation. With hard-fought wisdom, a clear view of Scripture, and been-there perspective, Needham reorients us toward the purposeful, loving relationships we all crave that ultimately bring us closer to God.

  • Girls Club : Cultivating Lasting Friendship In A Lonely World

    $16.99

    In an era when many women struggle with feelings of isolation and deep loneliness, Girls’ Club calls us to embrace the delight and joy that can be found in life-giving female friendships-relationships that not only offer emotional affirmation and acceptance, but also inspire, educate, and stretch us to live out our God-given potential.

    Girls’ Club is a book of stories and encouragement based on the experiences of the authors: a middle-aged mom, her newly married oldest daughter, and her youngest daughter, a single woman in graduate school.

    While there are many books on women’s friendships that tout the message of meeting each other in the mess, Girls’ Club will speak to the value and satisfaction found through friendships in which women not only support each other emotionally but also encourage each other to become more excellent women.

    Girls’ Club will encourage women to take the initiative to seek out other women with whom to share life and to be blessed with the gift of deep friendship.

  • Friend Me : Turning Faces Into Lasting Relationships

    $14.99

    From Virtual Friends to Authentic Relationships

    With the rise of social media, more of us are managing our relationships online instead of in person. Technology that was meant to make communication easier and faster for busy people may have met its goal, but often at the expense of intimacy and meaningful conversation. In many cases, friendship has become a status decided by the click of a mouse. Kindling a relationship-or cutting one off-is as simple as friending someone or removing that person from your list. And someone with a thousand-plus online pals may be the loneliest person on the planet.

    If you can identify, you’re not alone. That’s because each of us is wired to thrive in the context of real relationships-live interaction with real individuals, such as is shared by Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It’s how we give and receive emotional sustenance and support. Yet this type of intimacy can’t be achieved online.

    Join Donna Carter on a journey to stronger, more satisfying relationships as you explore:
    *The risks of being vulnerable and why they’re worth it
    *Qualities to seek out in a friend, as well as to cultivate in your own life
    *Toxic relationships and how to avoid them
    *Steps toward reconciliation, including forgiveness
    *The purpose of solitude in refreshing the soul
    *And more!

    Experience a richness in your human relationships that you’ve never experienced before. And, as you do, draw closer to the One who designed you to love and be loved, by other people and by Him.
