Would you like to have a peaceful home with cooperative, obedient children? If you answered ‘YES’ to any or all of these questions, this book will show you some simple, Biblical, step-by-step parenting ideas that can transform your family.
Every parent, grandparent and anyone planning on being a parent should read this book.
Here’s an early reader review:
“Rick Osborne gets to the point, explains the mistakes we all tend to make and offers practical solutions that are so simple to implement that it made me wonder why I didn’t think of them myself. I used his suggestions and was astounded how quickly the atmosphere in our house changed.
My kids don’t fight anymore and they listen and cooperate. It’s amazing.
This book doesn’t preach, it helps. It’s a simple map to great parenting.
I highly recommend 7 Mistakes. It’s a must on every parent’s bookshelf. This book will change your home.” Romana O
The demand for this product has been huge and therefore I’m pleased to announce that this best-selling children’s classic, The Original Singing Bible, has been digitally remastered and is now available on CD and for digital downloads!
Over 50 songs and narration make for an exciting 160-minute ride through the Bible.
The Singing Bible has been called a, “Christian classic,” “A must have for every Christian family” and “The best Bible song series for kids ever made.
This indispensable resource was designed to help kids learn God’s Big Story from creation to Jesus second coming, to learn about their Bibles, the books of the Bible, the Good News, the key memory verses of the Bible and on and on the list goes. Children learn while they sing along and enjoy.
Here is a reoccurring comment we hear from parents, “Our Kids love it and want it played over and over again, which for once, is okay. Unlike some kids cds, it doesn’t drive you crazy because the songs and music are so well done. We like it too.”
Ideal for every member of any family with kids 2 – 10 years old.
This book was designed to help parents transition their kids from a Bible Storybook to a whole text Bible.
If you have children ages 8 – 12 and you want them to be reading their Bible and praying this books for you.
Some devotionals supplement the Bible and can be read on their own. This book avoids that and instead directs children to and through the Bible and in prayer.
This little book has helped tens of thousands of children start the journey of their own personal Time With God.
As you know when God calls us to do a work, he trains us for that work and often takes us through things that prepare us for the task. Real life is a really great teacher. I do not believe that God authors all of our difficulties. For example James tells us that God does not tempt us with evil. (James 1:13)
However God will teach us and strengthen us while he guides us through whatever comes our way and he will work everything out when we are walking with him. (Romans 8:28)
Having said that, I believe that God has wonderfully (and by his grace) taken me through some big and small storms and through it all he has prepared me to help and encourage and equip other parents and families. Here is the brief story.
- I was raised in a religious home without knowing Jesus as my savior.
- My parents separated when I was six. My Mom (a single mother on social assistance) raised my three siblings and me.
- I stopped listening to anyone at the age of thirteen and became a rebellious worldly teenager.
- My mother married my stepfather when I was thirteen.
- My father had remarried earlier and I have two half brothers and a half sister.
- My mother committed her life to Christ when I was about 17 and started praying for her family.
- I gave my life to Christ and my life was changed forever just before my 19th birthday.
- Shortly after this I married my high school girlfriend when I was 20.
- We had three children.
- When the kids were still quite young, my wife left. (This was the most difficult time of my life.)
- Although the children’s mother saw them, they lived with me full time and I experience what it’s like to be a single parent.
- Even though I was free to remarry, I told God that I was willing to stay single and devote more time to my children and helping other parents.
- God had another plan.
- A friend of mine who also was friends with the owner of eHarmony was insistent that I should give eHarmony a try. Even though I ignored him, he kept it up.
- When others started telling me the same thing I started to wonder. Then when the owner of eHarmony emailed me personally (in response to a request from our mutual friend) and invited me to join, I felt that God was in it.
- Through a wonderful series of Godincidences I met Luba and five months after our first date we were married.
Although in the beginning I promised myself that my family would never break apart, I now have a second wife and my children have a stepmother.
These are the personal family details in a nutshell. I have shared this with you to show that I am just a normal guy walking through a bumpy life trusting God. All the while doing my best to parent God’s way, allowing him to strengthen, teach and guide me through all life’s ups and downs.
And through it all, I believe one of the reasons he has taught me (and that I have gone through some of what I have gone through) is so that I could with grace, turn and help, strengthen, encourage and equip others who are facing the same and similar bumps.
My oldest daughter is now married to my awesome son-in-law and my first grandchild is providing me with more life experience to pass on. My second daughter is attending college and my teenage son (my inspiration for my books for boys) is still at home.
2:52 BOYS NON-FICTIONS SERIES This series started with a conundrum. Publishing experts say that boys (on average) don’t read, so books published specifically for them usually fail. Yet parents wanted Christian resources for their boys. The solution? Write and design books that will both interest and feed Christian boys. Break the Bible out into topics that boys are attracted to, illustrate them with lots of pictures that boys will like, and break the content up into bite-sized pieces. Well we solved the conundrum these books have been selling like cheap umbrellas in an unexpected rainstorm and the letters of thanks have poured in from the parents of boys everywhere. The books are marked for ages 8 – 12 but boys as young as 5 and as old as 14 have been seen devouring them.
The best time to teach anyone anything is when he or she asks a question. Why? Because that is the time when the questioner has a desire to learn. Unfortunately, when our children ask us questions about God, Heaven, the Bible etc. we are often not prepared with the answers and the moment passes. Or worse yet we do our best to answer without really knowing for sure what the Bible says.
This book is a compilation of the original 8 books in the ‘101 Questions Kids Ask’ series. It was put together to provide parents with a handy reference for help answering their children’s questions when they arise.
The big difference between this compilation and the original books is that only a small amount of the over 800 illustrations have been included and the ones that are included are very small. This is ideal if you want the handy reference but if you are looking for a family devotional for your young children (ages 4 – 8 ) or a personal devotional for your older children (ages 7 – 12) it is best to use the original individual titles. The illustrations draw the children in and keep them wanting more.
Ideal as a ready reference for families with children of all ages. Buy Now

AMAZING QUESTIONS SERIES
The best time to teach anyone anything is when they ask a question. Why? Because that is the time when the questioner has a desire to learn.

Or worse yet we do our best to answer without really knowing for sure what the Bible says.

In order to really make the book authentic every question we used was actually asked by a real kid.
