Teach Them DiligentlyFeaturedNew

Author: Leslie Nunnery

Publisher: Master Books

Item #: A146

How many generations does it take to lose the culture?According to the Bible — it only takes one.In her first book, author Leslie Nunnery shines a much-needed light on the struggle many parents are having to pass on a godly legacy to their children. She gets right to a fundamental weakness of Christian parenting in this post-modern era: we have forgotten the importance and the privilege of parenting children today. Nunnery offers highlights from the cautionary tale of the Israelites' poor parenting to illuminate what is happening today in many Christian homes: though God has given us the tools to teach our children, we often fail to use them.— Heidi St. JohnIt’s easy to say we trust Christ for everything, but are we living that truth? We’ve been given clear instruction in a powerful promise for parents. God tells us in Deuteronomy to “teach our children diligently.” This passage and many others give us great insight as to how to do that and enjoy the promised blessing that always accompanies the mandates we are given.-Learn the practical view of discipleship parenting, what God expects from parents, and how to put these truths into action-See how parenting with the vision of teaching them diligently will intentionally bear fruit and affect change in your own life as well-Move beyond giving lip-service to what you believe, and make the conscious choice to rely on the wisdom of God’s holy instruction for your life and parenting.So, why are we as Christian parents still uncertain? Why do we live in fear? Why are we losing our children in record numbers? What can we do about it?

The step-by-step secrets for how to make your photos look like the pros'!Learn how to take professional-quality photographs using the same tricks today’s top photographers use (surprisingly, it’s easier than you’d think)!This is a completely, totally updated version of the #1 best-selling digital photography book of all time! It’s the award winning, worldwide smash hit, written by Scott Kelby, that’s been translated into dozens of different languages. Here’s how Scott describes this book’s brilliant premise: “If you and I were out on a shoot, and you asked me, ‘Hey, how do I get this flower to be in focus, with the background out of focus?,’ I wouldn’t stand there and give you a photography lecture. In real life, I’d just say, ‘Put on your zoom lens, set your f-stop to f/2.8, focus on the flower, and fire away.’ That’s what this book is all about: you and I out shooting where I answer questions, give you advice, and share the secrets I’ve learned just like I would with a friend―without all the technical explanations and techie photo speak.”This isn’t a book of theory―full of confusing jargon and detailed concepts. This is a book on which button to push, which setting to use, and when to use it. With over 200 of the most closely guarded photographic “tricks of the trade,” this book gets you shooting dramatically better-looking, sharper, more colorful, more professional-looking photos every time.Each page covers a single concept that makes your photography better. Every time you turn the page, you’ll learn another pro setting, tool, or trick to transform your work from snapshots into gallery prints. If you’re tired of taking shots that look “okay,” and if you’re tired of looking in photography magazines and thinking, “Why don’t my shots look like that?” then this is the book for you.TABLE OF CONTENTSChapter 1: Pro Tips for Getting Sharp PhotosChapter 2: The Scoop on LensesChapter 3: Shooting Landscapes Like a ProChapter 4: Shooting Travel Like a ProChapter 5: Making Portraits Like a ProChapter 6: Making Portraits with Flash Like a ProChapter 7: Shooting Weddings Like a ProChapter 8: Shooting Sports Like a ProChapter 9: Shooting Other Stuff Like a ProChapter 10: Pro Tips for Getting Better PhotosChapter 11: How to Print Like a ProChapter 12: Photo Recipes to Help You Get the Shot
