Father's Day Books 2014

As we approach the start of summer, we are blessed with the opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation for our fathers. They give us so much over the years --- love, encouragement, advice --- and Father’s Day is a special time to give back. And what better gift is there than a book, especially one about faith and fatherhood? To help out, we’ve compiled a list of titles that make perfect Father's Day presents. These works of fiction and nonfiction celebrate the things our dads do well and encourage them in their relationships, both with their family and with God. So, on June 15th, be sure to take time out of your day to thank the fathers in your life for all they’ve done.

For mothers raising daughters, we have included titles such as TIES THAT BIND, a devotional that will deepen not only faith but also the relationship between mother and daughter. For a dose of romance, try ONE PERFECT SPRING, or learn about one grandmother’s capacity for forgiveness with the heartwrenching NOW YOU SEE ME.
