Raising a Trailblazer: Last chance to pre-order your copy
'Raising a Trailblazer' coverDr. Virginia Friesen's book, "Raising a Trailblazer: Rite-of-Passage Trail Markers for Your Set-Apart Teens", will be arriving at the H.I.M. office in the next week and will soon be ready for shipment to those who have pre-ordered their copy.  This is your last chance to get pre-release pricing and free shipping!

In the book, Virginia explains the rites-of-passage celebrations she and Paul have used to mark their three daughters' 13th, 16th, 18th, and 21st birthdays and gives the rationale behind each celebration.  Ideas for how to mark these rites of passage for sons are given as well.

Noted author and speaker, Cynthia Heald, writes:
This is a much needed and relevant book for our times when it is so easy for our children to be led down a wrong path. Reading "Raising a Trailblazer" will not only equip you to blaze the trail and bless your teen, but it will also give you the confidence and tools you need to enjoy the hike.

It may be spring on the calendar, but we’re still getting freezing temps at night here in New England, and we surely have snow in our future yet this season.  Yet snow-lovers and crocus-watchers alike are rejoicing that Christ is Risen! 

It is this same power that raised Him from the dead that we draw on daily to build (and not tear down) relationships.  Because of Christ's forgiveness to us, we are moved to forgive others.  Because of God's mercy and love, we too, can show mercy and love.
We know you’re rejoicing with us!
