Jesus Calling : Enjoying Peace in His Presence, Sarah Young


Best Seller!
Jesus Calling: Devotions for Every Day of the Year
by Sarah Young
After many years of writing her own words in her prayer journal, missionary Sarah Young decided to be more attentive to the Savior's voice and begin listening for what He was saying. So with pen in hand, she embarked on a journey that forever changed her—and many others around the world. 

In these powerful pages are the words and Scriptures Jesus lovingly laid on her heart. Words of reassurance, comfort, and hope.  Words that have made her increasingly aware of His presence and allowed her to enjoy His peace. 

Jesus is calling out to you in the same way. Maybe you share the author’s need for a great sense of “God with you”. Or perhaps Jesus seems distant without you knowing why. Or maybe you have wandered farther from Him that you ever imagined you would. Here is a year’s worth of daily readings from Young’s journals to bring you closer to Christ and move your time with Him from monologue to a dialogue. 

Each day is written as if Jesus Himself were speaking to you. Because He is. Do you hear Him calling? 400 pages, hardcover (Item #81238)

'Tis the Season to be Baking
Christmas Reflections and Bread Recipes
Father Dominic Garramone, O.S.B., acclaimed author and host of PBS  TV show "Breaking Bread with Father Dominic", weaves together holiday reflections and recipes in ‘Tis the Season to Be Baking. In this new collection, Father Dominic relates nearly two-dozen holiday baking traditions to scripture and shows that holiday preparations can seem less like drudgery if we can see the purpose behind them. Did you know that the French meal fougasse represents the genealogy of Jesus or that two very different Christmas breads—the traditional German stollen and the more recent Saint Bede tradition of “Bambino Bread”—represent the Christ Child in swaddling cloths? ‘Tis the Season to Be Baking offers such wisdom and it takes bakers, holiday traditionalists, and Father Dominic fans beyond bread yet again. 5x7" softbound (Item #86454) $12.00


Fr. Dominic Garramone is a priest and monk of Saint Bede Abbey in Peru, Illinois. Following a college education in theatre, he entered the monastery in 1983 and was ordained as a priest in 1992.

He is well known to public television viewers for his cooking series Breaking Bread With Father Dominic. Father Dom teaches religion and drama at Saint Bede Academy and also enjoys herb gardening and photography.

The Nativity Story: Contemplating Mary’s Journeys of Faith
Compiling Editor: Rose Pacatte, FSP

Although she is the Mother of God, Mary was a woman who experienced the full range of human emotions: amazement and confusion, fear and exhaustion, tenderness and wonder, tranquility and joy. In this inspiring book, contemporary women ponder Mary’s journeys—both spiritual and physical—and contemplate her growth as a person, a woman, a wife, a mother, a child of God.

Each of these authors has made a journey of faith that has been enriched or guided by Mary’s example, and they show us how—through our roles and women and men, daughters and sons, wives and husbands, mothers and fathers, sisters and brothers, professionals and religious—we can find in Mary both a role model and source of insight and encouragement for our own “journeys of faith.”  Includes photos from the movie. Paperback / 160 pages / Dimensions: 8 1/2" x 11" (Item #84762)

Wonderworker: The True Story of How St. Nicholas Became Santa Claus
by Vincent A. Yzermans
Discover the magic inherent in the true story of a man who overcame relative obscurity in a small Mediterranean city and became a cultural icon the world over. In Wonderworker: The True Story of How St. Nicholas Became Santa Claus, Msgr. Vincent Yzermans writes a book for his grandnephew that explains the evolution of St. Nicholas into Santa Claus.

Nicholas quickly made a name for himself with his eloquence, intelligence and generosity. Recognized as a miracle worker during his lifetime, he became known for helping children in need, mothers in labor, and sailors as they traversed the Mediterranean. The modern incarnation of Santa Claus, however, became popularized in the mid-19th century through a poem by Clement Clark Moore called "A Visit from St. Nicholas"-better known as "The Night Before Christmas"-in the Frank Church editorial, "Yes, Virginia, There Is a Santa Claus," and in the artwork of Thomas Nast and Haddon Sundblom.

This book will appeal to children from the age of nine to ninety-nine. Anyone who celebrates Christmas-regardless of whether or not they still believe in the existence of a Santa Claus who brings gifts to children around the world-will welcome this informative and eloquent explanation of the true story behind how a humble bishop from Asia became "jolly old St. Nick." 64 pages.

80317.jpg (8479 bytes) The Very First Christmas
Many children's Christmas books are long on fancy and short on fact. Most of them ignore the themes of the first Christmas and opt instead for fairy tale settings or winter tableaus. This beautifully illustrated book, a Gold Medallion Book Award winner, fills the gap by presenting fresh insights into the Christmas story from both the scriptural and secular context.

The book tells the story of a young boy Christopher, who no longer wants to hear fairytales; he only wants real bedtime stories. So his mother tells the amazing and miraculous story of Jesus' birth. Along the way, Christopher learns the answers to some challenging questions about the Christmas story. And all the answers are right from the Bible.

This book makes a wonderful gift for children, families, and friends. 32 pages. (Item #80317) $15.49

83985.jpg (9721 bytes) Saint Nicholas: The Real Story of the Christmas Legend
Many parents and teachers struggle with how to approach the Saint Nicholas/Santa Claus dilemma. Many deal with this by telling children that the legends surrounding Santa Claus are based on a real, historical figure named Nicholas, a Christian bishop known for his generosity.

This picture book presents a shortened, somewhat fictionalized version of the life of Saint Nicholas, explaining that Nicholas was a servant of God and that, through him, God’s love was reflected to others. The story touches on the ministry of Nicholas and his generous gift of a dowry to three young girls as a response to God's love in Jesus. And it brings application to our own lives as we, too, respond with grateful hearts to God’s great gift of love to us.

Combining museum-quality artwork and family friendly language, this book clearly articulates how God showered His love upon us through Christ and helps children see that our own gift-giving is a grateful response to the sacrificial gift of God’s Son. 32 pages. (Item #88116)

Build Your Own Bethlehem: A Nativity Scene and Activity Book for Christmastime
by Gertrud Mueller Nelson with Peter Mazar
Here are all the characters—and then some—for building your own nativity scene! Each figure is yours to pop loose and set up as the days of Christmas unfold. There’s the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. There’s the stable with scampering mice and cooing doves that sit in the rafters. There’s the ox and ass and a flock of sheep accompanied by shepherds and their faithful dog. There’s an angel, of course, and a star. Epiphany’s three holy kings, Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar, are here too. And there are surprises—the gospel’s “senior citizens,” Anna and Simeon, who wait 40 days to meet their newborn Lord.

This beautiful, full-color activity book (the pop-out figures are found inside) suggests eight occasions, from Christmas until Candlemas—a full 40 days—for using the figures to tell a portion of the nativity gospels, like a puppet theater! The art of Gertrud Mueller Nelson and the sturdy pop-out figures truly bring the Christmas stories to life.

Building your own Bethlehem is a wonderful way to keep the spirit of Christmas alive well into the new year—perfect for home or classroom, perfect for every age.

Celebrate these Advent and Christmas stories at home or in the classroom:
• The annunciation to Mary
• The birth of Jesus
• The coming of the shepherds
• The flight into Egypt
• The visit of the Magi
• And more!
8 1/2 X 11, 40 pages.
