“A comprehensive guide for parents who are unfortunately given the ‘bad news’ regarding their pre-born child with either an ultrasound or laboratory diagnosis of a potential or real congenital problem. It explains to them both secular and religious faith-based strategies on how to emotionally, psychologically and spiritually prepare for and assimilate the multiple and various emotions they will have to reconcile, as well as how to deal with the mixed messages they will be receiving from family members, friends, physicians, and their own inner conflicting feelings…. My prayers have been answered in Madeline Pecora Nugent’s My Child, My Gift.” From the Foreword by MARK X. LOWNEY "This volume is a must read for each parent, grandparent and friend. Nugent has answered every question asked regarding the pains and joys of motherhood. Madeline's words are written to mothers who crave honest counsel and anticipate earnest guidance. To call this book "Every Mother's Bible" would sound irreverent. But sincerely this is undoubtedly the most profound and complete guide to understanding what love means at the heart of becoming a mother. This treasure piece is essential to occupy every woman's library.” TERRI GREEN Author of Simple Acts of Kindness Includes many insights and experiences of parents, along with b/w photos of their children.

Well-meaning church leaders and planters often set out to radically transform their communities for Christ-kingdom causes. Their aspirations and visions are limitless. However, often the best-laid plans fail to yield results of any consequence—they become frustrated, and pull the plug leaving behind the remnants of all their best intentions. Does it have to be this way? Is it possible for a local church to become so influential in its community that it becomes a life-giving agent for believers and non-believers? A resource that becomes the catalyst whereby abandoned buildings are repurposed, small businesses attracted, jobs created, crime reduced, justice progressed, health improved, and ultimately, the kingdom of God advanced in such a way that it impacts the every corner of the community? In Disruption: Repurposing the Church to Redeem the Community, Dr. Mark DeYmaz explains why such an outlook it not only possible but essential for the church to gain credibility and relevance in the community it seeks to influence. Genuine transformation never occurs through maintaining the status quo. A Disruption is often the missing ingredient that moves the church from ineffective to radically transformative.

Yet, more than a good idea, it's a biblical, first-century standard with far-reaching evangelistic potential. How can your church overcome the obstacles in order to become a healthy, fruitful multi-ethnic church of faith? And why should you even try?“Ethnic Blends will help every church broaden its horizon of outreach, love and care for their city. Acts 1:8 commands us to reach the uttermost parts of the earth. Today, the "uttermost parts" are found within a few miles of where you live. God called us to reach people, love people and help them grow in Christ, no matter their background. Mark's book helps us recapture that vision in a powerful way.” —Jonathan Falwell, pastor, Thomas Road Baptist Church
