Wrestling Prayer is filled with practical ways to help you build a stronger prayer life. A lot of us feel defeated in our spiritual life. Many of us have tried praying without success, and our expectations of God diminished as a result. For much of my Christian journey, this was how I felt in my prayer life - frustrated and discouraged. But over the past few years, I’ve learned some important things about prayer that have revolutionized my spiritual walk. Prayer can’t be baked down into a step-by-step recipe or cookie-cutter formula. But there are some Biblical principles that, when applied to your personal prayer life, can revolutionize your experience with a God who hears and answers prayer. If you are feeling lackluster in your prayer life, don’t miss this challenging and inspiring book!
The Bravehearted Gospel expresses the foundation of everything that Eric and I believe. It’s the “deeper message” behind all that we speak, write, and teach. And it presents an urgent message for the modern church. Eric and I believe that American Christianity is in crisis. Once upon a time, Christianity was the stuff of legends and loyalists were spiritual and moral revolutionaries, the kind of men and women who turned the world upside down. But over time, something has happened to that once fervent and bravehearted band who dared to be called Christians. Many today have inherited a faith that has no real life or power. Instead of zeal there is apathy. Instead of courage there is timidity. And instead of confidence there is paralyzing doubt. Something has to change. For all those hungering for a spiritual revolution, there is an ancient blood-stained trail, trod by the greatest men and women in history, beckoning us to once again explore its epic and grand terrain. For all those hungry for a Christianity that actually works, a faith that reforms the human life and possesses the power to rescue this dying world, this trail mustn’t be ignored. For it is the path of heroes and of real-world change – it’s the path of the Bravehearted Gospel. This book can super-charge your spiritual life and awaken you to the power of the Gospel like never before!
Today’s young people long to live a life that really counts. But often, they don’t know how. Too many in the younger generation live an aimless, purposeless existence – lacking direction, focus, and passion. They are desperately seeking answers to the riddles of life…Why am I here? What am I supposed to be doing? And how am I supposed to get it done? This book helps you tackle these daunting questions. It provides a practical roadmap into the boundless potential of a Christ-built life. It’s more than a book about finding your purpose; it’s about the life-altering effect that God—the Author of adventure—can have upon your purpose.
What ever happened to historical, world-altering Christianity? This book seeks to introduce modern young people the heroic existence of Christians in history past. Leslie and I believe that the Christian life isn’t meant to be dull and predictable, but the greatest adventure of all time. This adventure turns ordinary young men and women into heroes for Truth; top-level agents in the service of the Most High God. It transforms the impossible challenges of life into amazing opportunities to see the power of God at work. It awakens an aimless generation to a whole new kind of existence – an existence scripted by the God of the impossible. Highly motivational yet extremely practical, When God Writes Your Life Story features a hands-on Field Guide section, highlighting the Seven Landmarks of a God-scripted adventure to help you reach new heights in vital areas such as goal setting, personal development and spiritual growth.
For a generation longing to live a life that counts, this book opens a whole new world of possibilities. Get ready to discover how breathtaking the adventure can be…when God writes your life story.

God has so much more for our children than pop-culture conformity, spiritual atrophy, and sexual preoccupation. But for our kids to be numbered among the rare few that push aside the mediocre life of selfishness and press forward into God’s endless frontier, they need parents who are unwilling to let them settle in the land of compromise. Great parents, submitted to the vast potential of God, raise up great children. As Eric and I have traveled this country and interacted with countless young people, we have heard the desperate desire for godly teammates echoed over and over again among the younger generation. Our prayer is that this book will equip you, as a parent or leader, to become the answer to this generation’s most urgent need.
If the younger generation is ever to escape the slime of the culture and experience vibrant successful relationships and marriages, they need parents who will rise to the challenge and point them to God’s highest. We pray that this message will inspire you to embrace that sacred call. This book is not written from a parent-to-parent perspective. Rather, this book is written from the perspective of the younger generation. We want this book to serve as a voice to you from today’s young people. We want to help articulate their perspective and help you better understand what they need and desire from you as parents and leaders. We pray the words contained within these pages will give you a vision for your amazing role in the transformation of a generation, and offer you the practical tools to see that vision become a reality.
Note: This book is also a great tool for young people who desire to reach their own peers, or those a few years younger, with God’s perspective on romance and relationships.
“This book is a blaring wake up call to parents of teenagers, a valuable tool to help parents navigate the treacherous waters of adolescence.”

This is a book unlike any other. Its premise is “finding great sex”, but this is not your typical Christian sex book. In an allegorical fiction-esque style, this book creatively investigates God’s ancient blueprint for lasting romance and (ahem) incredible sex. (Don’t worry, the content is not graphic or gross!) Whether you are single or married, this book provides the missing ingredients to that create truly fulfilling love, sex and romance. We can’t say much more about it without giving away the secret of this book, but here are some comments from a few readers who got their hands on the pre-published manuscript:
Meet Mr. Smith is...
Ingenious! (Becki, 28) | Absolutely phenomenal (Ryan, 27)
Awe-inspiring (Rachel, 21) | Deeply touching (Amy, 28)
A masterfully woven story (Melody, 31) | Fabulously creative (Corey, 29)
A treasure trove (Bethany, 22) | Enchanting (Lindsay, 27)

A taste of Heaven on earth (Kendra, 22) | Utterly remarkable (Ben, 20)

Magnificent and more beautiful than a fairy tale (Courtney, 20)
Eric and I believe that a thriving marriage, not just a surviving one – should be the aim of every couple. The first few months of a new marriage is like the “wet concrete” stage of a relationship – the habits, both good and bad, lock into place. Roles become defined. Communication methods settle themselves in for the long haul. Sexual and emotional intimacy gets off to either the right or wrong start. Every couple has a choice of how they are going to begin their proverbial ride into the sunset. If you proactively maximize your first 90 days of marriage, you will avoid years of heartache, disillusionment, and having to “un-learn” all the wrong habits that were set in those early months.
Marriage is serious business. It’s intense, it’s challenging – it’s important work. However, we hope this book will display that marriage is also romantic, fun, and full of magical wonder. Marriage will likely be one of the hardest things you will ever do. But marriage should also be one of the most enjoyable things you ever do. This book is full of practical insight with chapters such as “How to Stay Madly in Love Through Life’s Ups and Downs”, “How to Tackle Life as a Team” and “How to Build the Ultimate Romantic Sanctuary”. Leslie and I greatly enjoyed writing this book, and we pray it will help young couples everywhere lay the foundation for a God-scripted, ever-after relationship that only gets better with time. Whether you are soon to be married, have been married many years, or simply want to gain God’s perspective for marriage in your single years, we believe you’ll greatly benefit from this book.
