Merry Christmas!

Welcome, friends!

We always try to give our children gifts that will not only give them joy, but will help them to develop good characters. Children’s play is practice for adulthood and their imaginations help them to “try out” different characters. We want them to try out God-honoring characters!

We first started reading Hero Tales from American History to our own children. We love the character of Theodore Roosevelt and we felt sure that he would draw out stories and lessons our guys needed to hear. It didn’t take long for us to realize we wanted to share these stories with you. We didn’t know of anyone else in our circle who had this book in audio (this is not the Hero Tales by Dave and Neta Jackson) — and then we decided to add sound effects! Our boys just love sound effects – cannons, seagulls, crickets in the woods; it makes them feel like they are right there living it! We think these are going to be great for your children – and they’re going to love them!

Have you read Raising Real Men yet?

Has your husband?

Tedd Tripp, Chris Klicka, Phil Downer, Douglas Wilson, and John Rosemond have!

Moms keep telling us their husbands just don’t have time to read, though!

They asked us to do an audiobook so their husbands could listen in the car and both of them get on the same page, so we did!

Well, then we had another problem! Couples stood at our book table arguing about which to get, so we invented the Mom & Dad Special – buy them both and get $5 off!

The $25 audiobook and the $15 hard copy for only $35!

Now moms are telling us they’ve already bought our book, but now they want the AudioBook for Dad…

We want that to  happen, too! So, during our Christmas Promotion you can get the AudioBook for only $20 – just like you’d bought the Mom & Dad Special. We’ll call it the Dad Add On!

Still not sure? Listen to a chapter here.
