The First Hostage – Joel Rosenberg

J.B. Collins is in greater danger than ever before…and that’s saying something.

God Made All of Me – Justin and Lindsay Holcomb

Children need to know about private parts. That’s how Justin and Lindsay Holcomb’s book God Made All of Me begins. On the surface, that seems obvious, but past parents really do a poor job of talking with their children about the private areas of their body.
