How to Be a Lady by  Harvey Newcomb
“What you are while you are a girl, you will be when you become a woman.” Somewhere within the recesses of every girl’s heart is the desire to act, and be treated, as a lady. But a true lady is more than just graceful and feminine; she has a Christ-centered character that regulates her inner thoughts and motives, as well as her outward graces. In this book, originally published in 1850, extraordinarily practical wisdom is offered to young girls in the practice of developing womanly character. The girl’s equivalent to Thoughts for Young Men, this book is excellent for mothers and daughters and a must-read for every young lady-in-training!




The Wise Woman's Guide to Blessing Her Husband's Vision (2 CD Set)
 by Douglas Phillips
This series is meant to encourage both wives and husbands with the principles and the practicalities for men and women growing in family vision for the Lord. Approx. 1 hr. 40 mins.
 




Mother
by Kathleen Norris, Edited by Jennie Chancey
This is a difficult age to be a woman. The woman who aspires to raise children for the glory of God, to develop the ministry of the home, or to co-labor with her husband is deemed “old-fashioned” or “unfulfilled.” The modern lure of independence and career has bewitched an entire generation to exchange the beauty of Christian womanhood for the temporary enticements of a society at war with the family.
Amidst this confusion, Kathleen Norris’s Mother is a refreshing call to sanity. Mother is the fictional tale of a young lady who leaves home and repudiates family life in the hope of finding personal fulfillment through independence and a career. She decides that home life is a poor choice in the face of life in the big city. But God dramatically changes her heart as she realizes that wealth and position are illusory and that independence can enslave a young lady. She discovers that the greatest woman she has ever known is her mother and now she longs for home and motherhood.

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald
Have you struggled to reconcile God’s vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize and mock the role of the homemaker? Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the homemaker’s calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous power-woman—the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills? Such is the image of the “desperate housewife” that the modern media, portrays.

Home-Making By J.R. Miller
Don’t let the title fool you. This is not just a book for women who keep home. Home-Making is an uncompromising vision statement for the domestic bliss and cultural dominion of the Christian family. The message of Home-Making is powerful: “Sisters, Brothers, Husbands, Wives — Home life is meant to be beautiful, ennobling, and victorious!” God intends for each person, from parent to child, to play a role in family life, the ultimate goal of which is the transformation of the individual, the home, and the society for the glory of God.


Miller puts into writing truth that we need to hear but are usually too afraid to say. He carefully addresses each member of the family, managing to find the perfect balance between inspiration and exhortation.

First, he addresses the marriage relationship: “The married life is meant to be the happiest, fullest, purest, richest life. It is God’s own ideal of completeness.” He then instructs the husband and the wife: “Every true-hearted husband should seek to be worthy of the wife he has already won. A true wife makes a man’s life nobler, stronger, grander, by the omnipotence of her love ‘turning all the forces of manhood upward and heavenward.’”

With regard to the brother and sister relationship, never have I read as pure a description as here. Miller asks, “Why should not a brother make a confidante of his own sister rather than of any other? Why should not a sister look to her own brother for counsel, for protection, for advice, rather than to any other?”

Beall Phillips writes, “Sometimes all of us get swallowed up in the day to day duties and lose sight of the beauty in family life. We all need our vision renewed and our hearts encouraged. This book does just that. I was deeply moved and my very heart was touched as I read the beautiful descriptions of biblical family relationships. I was inspired. My vision was refreshed. Hardback. 266 pgs.


Be Fruitful & Multiply: What the Bible Says About Having Children  By Nancy Campbell
Can you imagine attending a wedding where the family of the bride prayed for her to have vast legions of children who would grow up to have dominion in the land for the glory of God? This was precisely the blessing offered by the sisters of Rebekah upon her marriage to Isaac. These sentiments beautifully harmonize with Scripture passage after Scripture passage which extol the virtue of trusting the Lord to control the womb and the necessity that believers be fruitful and multiply. For six-thousand years, believers viewed children as a blessing and reward of the Lord greatly to be desired. It was widely accepted that those who cut off their seed usually did so in violation of the express commands of God. Only in the last seventy-five years have child prevention and birth control become acceptable in the Church. Perhaps more than any other philosophical shift in the history of the Church, the modern anti-child philosophy has changed the way we view the role of fathers and mothers as well as the meaning of family life and multi-generational faithfulness. But genuine questions persist: Does the Bible address the question of child prevention? Is cutting off the godly seed ever an act of “good stewardship?” Are economic considerations a valid biblical ground for closing the womb? What about “natural” family planning? What about families that cannot have children? Is the widespread use by Christians of the “pill,” a child prevention device with abortifiacient potential, bringing judgment on the Church? Be Fruitful and Multiply answers these questions and makes the case that Christians should do more than just “trust God” for children, we should cry out to the Lord to bless the fruit of the womb. Paperback. Approx. 220 pgs.

Sleeping Beauty and the Five Questions CD by Douglas Phillips

Father/ Daughter Retreat - 5 CD Set
God's Word speaks volumes to the relationship between fathers and daughters: A father's most sacred duty is his daughter's protection and preservation from childhood to virtuous womanhood. He leads her, woos her, and wins her with a tenderness and affection unique to the bonds of father and daughter. Success in a father mission is directly related to the seriousness and compassion with which he seeks to raise his daughter as an industrious, family-affirming, children-loving woman of God. She, in turn, looks to her father as a loving picture of leadership, of devotion, and of care. A daughter's relationship with her father will help to define her view of the worth of a woman, the meaning of fulfillment and contentment, and her vision for virtue. When these relationships are realized and cultivated, the generational mission of the Christian family is secure.
Is it any wonder that Satan is on the prowl, seeking to tear the hearts of daughters from their fathers, and driving wedges of indifference between them--fathers with no time for their little girls, and young ladies who have replaced the love of their fathers with the acceptance of peers and inappropriate romantic relationships? These recordings from the 2003 Vision Forum Ministries Father and Daughter Discipleship Retreat are one step on the journey of recovering the preciousness of this relationship, so crucial to the kingdom-building work of the Church. .

Christian Modesty and the Public Undressing of America Book By Jeff Pollard
The Church is being destroyed by sacred cows. A "sacred cow" is an untouchable subject that we are not supposed to discuss. To do so impinges upon another's "Christian liberty." Certainly, there are few sacred cows quite as sacred as the right of modern Christians to dress however they please. But in this groundbreaking work, Jeff Pollard challenges us to embrace God's standard and to understand the historical roots of the rise of  immodesty in modern culture. His perspective is thoughtful and balanced. Most importantly, he accomplishes what few authors on this subject have achieved: a treatise that avoids both license and legalism. A courageous booklet. Paperback. 76 pgs. Highly Recommended! 

Christian Modesty and the Public Undressing of America CD
Jeff Pollard address' a rapt crowd in a conference message based on his popular book Christian Modesty and the Public Undressing of American. He summarizes the basic message of the book, but delves even further into areas not as well covered, such as the role that men play in modesty. He speaks with a gentle yet firm tone that doesn't rant against women, but rather clearly addresses the Biblical need for modesty, encouraging both men and women to have a unambiguous understanding of it's biblical importance. In an era of polar extremes, Jeff Pollard gives way to neither legalism nor liberalism, but holds to precisely what he sees in Scripture. Approximately 55 minutes.
