A Daughter’s Book of Secrets

A father should be the image that all other men are measured in the eyes of his daughter. This book is designed to open up discussions between the daughter in her teenage years and is becoming an adulthood. Strong and meaningful conversations between fathers and daughter’s breakdown and falter because there is not a focus on discussing the simple things in life. Small conversations, which continually build on the self-esteem and self-efficacy of the young woman leaving home, will create a thin space that will allow the relationship between the father and his daughter to remain intact after she has left home. Johnson’s experiences with his seven daughters has allowed him insight into the disconnect between a father and daughter when she begins to step into womanhood leaving the image of “”daddy’s little girl”” behind. A Daughter’s Book of Secrets contains some information that a dad should talk to his daughter about. It also opens up areas in which some fathers fear to tread and meet his daughter as she grows into adulthood. “”The text you hold represents not just a handbook for dealing with the intricacies, nastiness, and mundanity of life, but a love song crafted by a father who finds great joy in that role. Enjoy reading A Daughter’s Book of Secrets. Pass it on to your daughters, sons, and spouses. Johnson’s wisdom is applicable for all of us. The cost is $20.00

My Spiritual Journal

After we leave church on Sunday morning, many of us do not give a great deal of further thought to the sermon we just heard. For some of us, it is all we can do to think about what we need to do each day for our families, careers, and ourselves. Unfortunately, contemplation on God’s Word from the previous Sunday is often not high on the to-do list. Authors Robin K. Johnson and Kevin Wade want to change that. They want the message received in Sunday Morning Services and Wednesday Night Bible Study to carry one through the week. In My Spiritual Journal, these authors provide the vehicle by which those messages may be strengthened and lived throughout the week. By taking notes and reading suggested passages, you will learn to use self-reflection to open doors to spiritual insights. You will be able to change behaviors that have prohibited the Holy Spirit from moving in your life. Copies are available per request for $20.00 through the Mount Olive email – mobcofypsi@gmail.com

Consider This On This Day

Consider This on This Day will allow you to take the first few moments of your morning reading a text, and then discover new applications for overcoming the stresses of the daily grind. All this will take is for you to test one week of the Bible lessons contained within to find new avenues to face those giants in your life. Try it and leave with a renewed mind.

The Story Lectionary

Effective preaching is the art of exegeting not only words and principles, but also images, metaphors and stories. For decades Leonard Sweet has revolutionized preaching with his narrative savvy and image exegesis, culminating in his exploration of Scripture’s key “narraphors”. Like a parable, a narraphor (narrative + metaphor) contains the power of a metaphorical image with the accessibility and approachability of a story. Now, Sweet has passed on his expertise to his first—and only—doctoral preaching cohort at Portland Seminary. His students have crafted the Story Lectionary, 52 sermons that re-tell the Story of Scripture from “the Garden to the Garden City.” Whether a scholar, preacher, or earnest student of Scripture, the Story Lectionary will challenge your presuppositions about Jesus Christ and radically enhance your understanding of God’s plans to heal the world.​Dr. Wade is one of the co-writers.
