Not Afraid to Have Children: A 10-step parenting plan that will help you not raise monsters 46 page book by Reb Bradley
Many prospective parents watch whiny, demanding
children in grocery stores and think to themselves, “I want kids, but I
don't think I can handle them.” They want the joy that children seem to
offer, but not the stress, so they are putting off starting a family.
Some who already have children, don’t want to have any more because
theirs are the whiny ones who will not eat what is set before them and
who resist doing what they are told. Parenting for them, has become
about survival and self-preservation. That’s no way to live.
Kiss the Other Hand and other
memories and lessons that I treasure.
Every one of us is on a journey, and along the way have encounters that make us pause and look a little deeper into the fleeting moments that make up our lives. These are our stories.
In this book Beverly has written down some of her stories with the hope that you will read them and be encouraged, inspired, and most of all, reminded that you are not alone on your journey. Read it with a tissue in hand, and then, perhaps write down some stories of your own.
Love With God
Many believers today do not enjoy a great love for God in their hearts. They appreciate Him for what He has done, so they are faithful to Christ, but their walks are characterized by obligation and duty. Without passion, marriage relationships become dry and lifeless. So also, without passion our relationship with God will lack the vitality and life enjoyed by people in love. God is the most lovable being who has ever existed. If we are not in love with Him, it is because we don't know Him well enough. King David knew God, and as a musician he sang about what made Him beautiful. In this series Beverly looks at David's music to discover why he was so enamored with God. She also examines some of the classic hymns to reveal what it was about God that inspired their writers. If you want to fall in love with God, this series is for you.
Too few people understand the power of God's love. Doctrinally, they know God loves them, but they do not enjoy what it means to be empowered by that love. The Christian life for them is therefore excessively difficult, and may be hampered by fear, uncertainty, and challenging relationships. In this series Beverly reveals how knowing the love of God produces changed hearts and changed lives.
With all the demands of marriage, motherhood, housework, and church life, not to mention keeping up with social networking and email, it is amazing that any woman is still on her feet at the end of the day. Physical and emotional reserves are depleted long before the day is through, but each morning she must wake up and do it all again. Our God knows the human need for rest, and in this fast-paced, hectic life too many women believe they need "permission” to stop and rest, but the Lord doesn't just permit it -- He insists on it. “Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." (Mark 6:31). Listen to this 3-part series and walk with Beverly as she follows the Lord into a beautiful place of rest for your body, heart, and soul.
Many women pour themselves out for their families,
but feel they are running on empty. In this series Beverly discusses how
to embrace the grace of God in your life, so that you have an abundance
to give your family.
In these 4 sessions
Beverly walks women through the beauty and power inherent in Psalm 23. Listen
and discover what it means to be shepherded by God. Find out how to lie down in
His green pastures and enjoy rest for your soul. Hear how to enjoy God's safety
and security when faced with life's challenges and opposition from those who hate
you. Many attending the conference at which these messages were recorded
testified that they experienced not just a mountain top high, but lasting heart

Without proper biblical
discipline, children can be sources of great stress, and they grow up lacking
qualities and character traits necessary for maturity. However, many
discipline-minded parents exasperate their children because they fail to
distinguish between "will" and "skill" issues. They seek to motivate by
punishment when they should inspire by rewards. The Scriptures reveal that God
motivates by both warnings of curses, but also by promises of blessing -- by
punishment, but also by rewards. Parents who learn God's balance will discover
that their children flourish all the more.
MOTHER: Fighting FOR the children and not WITH them
Why is it that
while moms so often desire a close relationship with their children, they end up
in conflict with them? Not only is homeschooling near impossible when there is
tension in the family, but the ability to influence children’s values is lost.
In this session Beverly opens the Word to reveal important help for family
harmony. She shares about the transformation in her own home when she recognized
the spiritual warfare directed at her own children, and made the choice to fight
not WITH them, but FOR them.
Free: Escaping an
Exclusive Christian Group
Have you been
part of a group that you thought enjoyed special enlightenment? Did you feel
sorry for those outside the group and worried for anyone who left or moved away?
Did your leaders keep tight control over group members, and discredit anyone who
didn't agree with them or chose to leave? Did the group take pride in its high
“biblical” standards, but held everyone to standards that merely reflected the
leaders' opinions about the Scriptures? Was there an emphasis on externals, like
how to groom or dress and what corruptions must be avoided? Did the leaders'
constantly criticize other groups and continually expose those they labeled as
“false teachers,” so now you don't know where to go or what to believe? Having
left, does it feel like a weight has been lifted from you?

BACK IN PRINT
After 10 years out-of-print, Reb’s book The Forgotten Promises of God has been reprinted in booklet form. It is an exhaustive Bible study – a manual of sorts – addressing questions like the following:
> Does our adoption as God's
children assure us of little suffering, since Christ already suffered for us?
This book covers an unpopular subject – few want to think about suffering or persecution. However, the New Testament abounds with passages about this aspect of the Christian life. Those who understand and embrace God’s view of suffering will find themselves less overwhelmed by life and walking in greater victory.
AND THE LAW: Finding freedom from legalism, gaining power from grace
Presently, we have in our sermon archives a 12-tape set on the power of grace. Many within Reb's church experienced personal revival when they first heard this series of Sunday sermons, and it is our prayer that it will revive your souls as well! We have never duplicated this set for distribution before, so if you are interested in it, let us know and we will produce some to make available.
Leadership Training Series
Multitudes of homeschool parents around the country, including leaders, have graduated their first batch of kids, only to watch their graduates go wayward. Many were model homeschoolers while growing up, but sometime after their 18th birthday they began to reveal that they didn’t hold to their parents’ values. In this 4-session set Reb exposes blind spots in parenting which contribute to the breakdown of relationship between parents and children, and thereby increase prodigal tendencies. Every homeschooler and every family-minded parent needs to hear these messages.
