The Best Books

"The best book, like the best speech, will do it all -- make us laugh, think, cry, and cheer -- preferably in that order."
Madeleine Albright once said, “The best book, like the best speech, will do it all — make us laugh, think, cry, and cheer — preferably in that order.”

That about sums up our goal here at Prescott Publishing, but with a little added emphasis on making you think.

25 Ways to Show Love to Your Wife

25 Ways to Show Love to Your Wife by Doug Flanders | http://prescottpublishing.org Coming this Spring!

Prescott Publishing takes pleasure in announcing that author Doug Flanders will soon release his second book, 25 Ways to Show Love to Your Wife, an expansion of his popular blog post by the same name.

This title is a companion volume to his wife’s 25 Ways to Communicate Respect to Your Husband (already released).

With marriages crumbling on all sides, both Doug and Jennifer Flanders feel an urgency to call husbands and wives back to the basics:

“If couples would simply take these scriptural injunctions to heart,” Flanders writes, “their marriages would not only survive, but would thrive — just as God intended.”

But how does one go about implementing these principles? What does “honoring each other above yourself” and “serving one another in love” really look like on a day-to-day basis?

That’s the question the Flanders’ books seek to answer. In both volumes, you’ll find twenty-five time-tested strategies for communicating love and respect in consistent, meaningful, practical ways your spouse is sure to appreciate.

Raising Avid Readers in a Media Saturated Society

Raising Readers: How to Convince your Kids to Ditch their Computer Games in Favor of Reading {with free printable progress chart}

Prescott Publishing author Jennifer Flanders on how to raise avid readers in media-saturated society: “I don’t know about the kids at your house, but we have a couple of children who would spend 24 hours a day in front of a computer screen if we’d let them. We’ve tried restrictions (no computer time until homework’s done), rationing (only 15 minutes per day), and relegating it to non-primetime hours (weekends only, after family time).

These measures helped, but only to a point. The kids cooperated, but still spent an inordinate amount of time begging, pleading, or just waiting until they could get back online again.

Not exactly the productive use of time we were hoping for.

But now their attitudes have changed, and the transformation has been nothing short of amazing. It all started when we started linking computer privileges to reading time….” [read more]
