Thou and Thy House by C.H. Mackintosh
Highly recommended!

Family Driven Faith by  Voddie Baucham
Family Driven Faith equips Christian parents with the tools they need to raise children biblically in a post-Christian, anti-family society. Voddie Baucham, who with his wife has overcome a multi-generational legacy of broken and dysfunctional homes, shows that God has not left us alone in raising godly children. He has given us timeless precepts and principles for multi-generational faithfulness, especially in Deuteronomy 6. God's simple command to Moses to teach the Word diligently to the children of Israel serves as the foundation of Family Driven Faith.

Why Satan Wants Your First Born and What to Do About It - CD by Dr. S. M. Davis
A quick perusal of the Scriptures will demonstrate clearly and powerfully that God wanted all the first things. It is also clear that Satan wanted all the first things. It is also clear that Satan wants what God wants. Those who understand the Bible and history understand that this especially applies to the firstborn child or son. Do you know the consequences of not giving God the first things? Do you know the blessings firstborns may expect who give their lives to God? Entire families should listen to this message, but especially parents and their firstborn children. 1 CD. 1 hour. Highly recommended!

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.

The Family Renewal Library - 8 CD Set
These eight compact discs by Doug Phillips offer biblical answers to many of the most-asked questions from parents who long for a victorious family vision.

Women and Children First - CD by Douglas Phillips
Polls indicate that the typical high school male laughs at the idea of giving up his seat on a lifeboat to help a woman or child. In a society that promotes "survival of the fittest," aborts its young, and thrives on androgyny, this should not surprise us, but it should grieve our hearts. This is why we must tell the story of the men of the Titanic, their remarkable sacrifice, and the legacy of heroism which they inspired. Forget about the Hollywood movie, the true story of the R.M.S Titanic is far more inspiring. A goal of this tape is to encourage your sons to honor their mothers and protect their sisters.  Approx. 60 min. 1 audiocassette.

The Promise - CD  by Douglas Phillips
Honor your mother and father" is the first commandment with a promise. This tape addresses the blessings associated with honor, how to instill honor in the hearts of your children, and even how adults may honor renegade authority figures. Approx. 60 min. 1 cassette.


Defending the Fatherless - CD by Douglas Phillips
The most neglected group in the Church is children of single-mother homes. It is a biblical obligation to help such mothers stay off welfare and out of the workforce, and to enable them to home educate their children. This is true religion. By Doug Phillips. Approx. 60 min. 1 audiocassette.

The Role of Children in the Meeting of the Church - CD by Douglas Phillips
The biblical example is that entire families are present for corporate worship. Age-segregated worship is rooted in evolutionary humanism, not biblical Christianity. "Suffer the little children" to be in the presence of God and begin to experience the true blessing of family-centered worship. Approx. 60 min. 1 audiocassette. 

How to Evaluate a Suitor - (2 CD Set) by Douglas Phillips
In this fast-paced message, Doug Phillips explains that the greatest gift a dad will ever give away is his daughter. He examines the biblical qualifications for suitors and concludes that the Bible does not anticipate perfection, but minimal threshold requirements must be met. He examines the need for careful discrimination for determining if two are “equally yoked” and the doctrine of the “bride’s price.” Doug also points out biblical examples of wickedness by fathers toward suitors and urges dads to act decisively, but with charity, respect, and love.  2 Audiocassettes. Approx. 1 hr. 20 mins.
