Besides dinner, bedtime with children, or during church, how often do you and your wife pray together?
As Sam Ingrassia discovered when he asked himself that question, a candid answer is not necessarily a comfortable one. Perhaps yours isn't, either. Many—maybe even most—Christian men live with the burden of weakness and lack of confidence in spiritual leadership for their wives. Even a godly man can struggle to initiate regular, intentional spiritual connections with his wife.
Sam knows how widespread the problem is. He's asked hundreds of men—in groups and one-on-one—about how they're doing in this area, and almost to a man, they're missing something significant with their wives. Praying together. But Sam has discovered a profound, hopeful, and simple way to retake this lost ground. Just Say the Word—the Word of God.
By following the guidance Sam offers, you and your wife will open the windows of heaven to your relationship. You'll experience a fresh dimension in your spiritual walk together, one that will bolster your marriage in the storms of life. And you'll be equipped to protect your marriage and family with confidence. Even your children and grandchildren will see and experience the results. Renewed praying with your wife will touch every dimension of your life. MORE
Whatever it is you fill the 9–5 with—planting crops, building cars, taking care of patients, teaching students, running a business—work is where we spend most of our waking hours.
We often forget to connect our faith to our work. We don’t consider the reasons God may have us at our job. We don’t think about the purpose and meaning we could bring to our work. We simply focus on how it makes us feel.
But what if we saw our work as an opportunity to worship?
In these three inspiring video Bible study sessions, you will discover your mission is in the marketplace. Around the conference table, around the water cooler, or around the cubicle, you have an opportunity to worship the God who created you. MORE
Eat right. Exercise. Many of us struggle to keep our bodies in shape. But are we really healthy? Our total health begins at the core of who we are … our spirit. Our spiritual health is linked directly to our emotional, physical and mental health. How healthy do you really think you are?

You can change you appearance, your habits, your friends, your job…but you can’t change your character. Not on your own.

What does it mean to be a man? Moreover, how does a father instill these qualities in his son?
By Raising a Modern-Day Knight. Beginning with a biblical perspective of manhood, author-pastor Robert Lewis shares a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man by equipping him with three essential elements: a vision, a code of conduct, and a transcendent cause (Christianity) in which to invest his life. Complete with ceremony ideas to celebrate accomplishments and ingrain them in his mind, this resource is as insightful as it is practical in raising a boy to be a chivalrous, godly man.

In his inspiring book, Chasing Daylight, Erwin McManus uses the biblical account of Israel’s war with the Philistines (1 Samuel 13–14) and the characters of Jonathan and Saul to demonstrate the difference between living a life of purpose and adventure, and living one of apathy and missed opportunity. Through this story, McManus artfully illustrates the eight characteristics of an adventurer’s heart, what he calls the “Jonathan factor.”
In this video Bible study series, Erwin uses powerful examples from his own life, along with fresh biblical teaching to assert that God crafts divine moments specific to each of us—priceless opportunities for us to actively engage in God’s big-picture plan. MORE
A merchant banker. A failing dairy farmer. A refugee from Communist China. One risked his savings. One risked his farm. One risked his life.
Why do their stories matter? Because how we view entrepreneurs - as greedy or altruistic, as virtuous or vicious - shapes the destinies of individuals and nations.
The Study Guide touches on some topics that are beyond the scope of the film, in particular the role of Judeo-Christian thought in the rise of capitalism and the lessons that the Bible offers for the entrepreneur as entrepreneur. It includes a discussion of human beings as "co-creators" made in the image of God. MORE
