The Heaven for Kids book giveaway is now closed. Please check back on April 7 for the next giveaway.
From Randy: Stephanie’s stepping in again with a new book giveaway. I loved reading all your comments last time. Glad we’re giving you the audio option this time. Personally, I love listening to books on my CD player. And nice to have them on my IPod when I’m flying somewhere.

I've become aware of something that has to be heard to be believed: actual recordings of an actor calling various Planned Parenthood offices, pretending to want to donate money exclusively to abort black babies.

Its mark is still upon us, and one day, when redemption is fully realized, God will fan it into flames again, never to be quenched.

If you’re wondering about a worthy missions work to support, I highly recommend Action. (And Doug has a new blog too, http://dougnichols.blogspot.com, which will provide great missions-related info.)

Note from Randy: Stephanie Hallman, who works with our ministry, put together the following and will be in charge of the monthly book giveaway. My only suggestion was to change from a one book giveaway to three, since I love to give away books. (It’s easy for me since I‘m not the one who ships them, I just sign them!). So, here’s Steph:

This week I want to talk about our Longing for Joy, something that isn’t selfish in the bad sense, but something God made us for. In fact, some great theologians said in the Westminster Shorter Catechism, written nearly 400 years ago, “Man's chief end is to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever.” There is biblical support for that bold declaration.
