Grow Like Jesus is the first book to delve into Luke 2:52, "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man."—a verse that spans the gap between Jesus the child and Jesus at the start of his ministry—and unpack its lessons in ways that are simple to understand but deep enough to drive meaningful changes in a person’s life. While we don’t know if Jesus performed miracles while living in Egypt, if he caught fireflies at night as a kid or if he went to sleepovers with his friends, we can be sure he wasn’t just hanging around eating lentils and pomegranates. Based on Luke 2:52, we know he was growing in four specific areas: wisdom, stature, favor with God, and favor with people. In other words, he grew intellectually, physically, spiritually and socially. As it turns out (and it shouldn’t come as a surprise) continual growth in these four areas will prepare us for success in life as followers of Christ—the type of success that allows us to know God and make him known; in other words, real success. The practical, applicable and accessible knowledge of Grow Like Jesus is perfect for anyone new to a faith in Christ or looking to breathe new life into their existing faith.

Forging Grit is a fictional story that brings to life the science-backed theory that grit matters, and that any leader can develop it. Set in Nepal, it recounts the experiences of a business leader who encounters some extreme misfortune while taking a break from a special assignment in India. Through his own pain and suffering and through witnessing the ingenuity and grit of the people in a remote tribal village, this leader learns some life-changing lessons about what grit is, why it matters, and how to develop it. Thompson and Caldwell unpack an understanding of grit as a passion for getting something done and the fortitude to see it through even when obstacles seem overwhelming. People with grit establish who they are and what they believe, demonstrate perseverance and tenacity, and approach challenges with a passion that fuels their drive to accomplish the things they need to get done. Forging Grit not only paints a picture of what grit looks like, it provides tools to help you develop it as a skill for your work and personal life.

Anyone who wants to grow and wants to help others to grow in the Lord will find a practical approach within Beyond Discipleship to Relationship. Are you interested in growing a more intimate relationship with Christ? Think about how you first decided seriously to follow Jesus. Was it initiated in the midst of a crowd or during an intimate talk with one or two other believers? Beyond Discipleship to Relationship was written to: • inspire individual intimacy with the Lord • initiate shifts or revitalize your lifestyle as an imitation of the Gospel story • delve into particular events in the Bible, pausing for further reflection • nurture desire that others will see Christ in the lives we live. “Psalm 100:5 ‘And His truth endureth to all generations.’ God’s truth dwells in you. It is my belief that to God’s glory your work will magnify Him. Thank you for allowing me to be a small part of that process.” —Raymond Whitaker, Deacon Board chairman and Sunday school teacher, Angel Visit Baptist Church; Essex County School Board chairman

Perfect for boys ages 8 to 12, the 2:52 series is based on Luke 2:52: "And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and men." Focusing on four primary areas of growth, this guiding verse can help boys become more like Jesus mentally (smarter), physically (stronger), spiritually (deeper), and socially (cooler). From Bibles and devotionals to fiction and non-fiction, with plenty of gross and gory mixed in, there is something for every boy. Devotions to Take You Deeper helps boys ages 8 to 12 tackle the spiritual aspect of growing up the way Jesus did as described in Luke 2:52. In the humorous, cheeky, and sometimes gross style that makes the 2:52 series so engaging and fun, this 90-day devotional guides boys in developing their faith. It explores many facets of spiritual growth, such as Bible study, worship, and prayer. It also warns of the dangers of harboring bitterness, storing up treasures on earth, and worrying all the time. Combining important principles with practical messages, the book teaches lessons boys need to learn and helps them put this valuable knowledge into practice. Each devotion presents a Bible verse, explains it, and shows how it relates to boys’ lives, then offers tools to help boys mature in their walk with God, inspiring them to make changes that will ensure that their spirituality grows deeper and deeper.

In It’s Not Just Who You Know, Tommy Spaulding—the former CEO of Up With People—has written the new How to Win Friends and Influence People for the twenty-fist century. Success—in business and in life—is all about relationships. In this powerful guide to reaching out to others, Spaulding takes Dale Carnegie’s classic philosophy to the next level—how to create lasting relationships that go well beyond mere superficial contacts and “second floor” relationships. Tommy Spaulding learned at a very young age that he was not destined to be an academic star. He may have gotten a 4.0, but only if he added his high school and college GPAs together. The reason he found academics so challenging, he discovered later, is that Tommy is dyslexic. But his dyslexia didn’t hold him back—in fact, it helped him to develop the talents he did have. For Tommy is a natural leader; he realized early on that he had a unique ability to connect with others, whatever their age or background. As a teenager, he was given a copy of How to Win Friends and Influence People by his father, and it quickly became his bible. He became a national finalist for the DECA Entrepreneurial Business competition in high school, and ran successfully for senior class president. He went on to become the CEO of Up With People, one of the largest nonprofit international leadership organizations in the world. At every step, Tommy learned that the secret to getting ahead was reaching out for the support and insight and influence of others. None of us achieve great success alone. We need the help of other people. In this candid, revealing book, Tommy expands upon the principles that Dale Carnegie outlined 75 years ago, and shows us how to take them one step further to accomplish the impossible in our lives and careers. To invite others to be genuine partners in our lives and success, Tommy explains, you have to first be interested in other people. It’s not just who you know, or what they can do for you, but what you can do for them. Motives matter. Establishing a deeper connection is about authenticity, not manipulation. Reciprocity, not selfishness. Every relationship is a two-way street; we never know when a chance encounter can change the direction of our life. In the bestselling tradition of Dale Carnegie’s classic, It’s Not Just Who You Know shows how each and every one of us can use the power of netgiving—of helping others—to expand our world and achieve our goals, and make a difference in our job, our career, and our community.
