True Beauty: Cultivating Christ-Centered Father-Daughter Relationships (8 CDs)


True Beauty: Cultivating Christ-Centered Father-Daughter Relationships (8 CDs)

Format: Audio CD (475 minutes)


God’s Word speaks volumes to the relationship between fathers and daughters. One of his most sacred duties is her protection and preservation from childhood to virtuous womanhood. In these powerful messages given at the 2008 Father and Daughter Discipleship Retreat, speakers Doug Phillips, Scott Brown, Geoffrey Botkin and daughters Anna Sophia and Elizabeth Botkin illustrate elements of this important priority as they explore such topics as how to build the father-daughter bond, true feminine beauty, the Proverbs 31 woman, how to transition from beautiful girlhood to noble womanhood, and how to prepare daughters for marriage. Other highlights include a look at examples of godly, dominion-oriented womanhood from the young pioneer girls of the nineteenth century, as well as the special importance of the thirteenth year in a girl’s life.

Ten P’s in a Pod

Ten P’s in a Pod

Author: Arnold Pent III
Format: Hardback (198 pages)
Age Range: Great for the Entire Family


” During these uncertain times of political and financial instability and hardship, God has an answer for each one who turns to Him in faith. We know this, but when it comes to excercising our faith in troubled times, it can be hard. Joy in the trials comes from God alone, through the working of His Holy Spirit, and keeps us depending on Christ Jesus for our life. In so doing, our lives will change for eternity. To encourage you, we are offering this book at basically cost, to encourage your family in your faith, and your walk with Jesus. These are times of the greatest opportunity for all of us to seek the Lord’s guidance as we have never done and to see His hand in ways beyond our human reasoning. Over the next year, if God changes your life because of the impact of the book and you can relate something God has done as a result of your faith being increased in your family, write me a letter and give testimony to it. This will be a blessing to all of us and certainly bring encouragement to me and all of my family.” – Mr. Arnold Pent, author of Ten P’s in a Pod.

Future historians may look back on the Arnold Pent family and describe them as the “first modern home school family.” Long before there were any state home schooling organizations or curriculum fairs, Arnold Pent declared his independence from government education and his dependence on Jesus Christ in the training of his children.

No one told him to do this. He simply read the Bible and determined to follow the clear principles found within its pages and to be obedient to God — regardless of the consequences.

Like all great visionary leaders, Arnold Pent was a man with many wonderful directives for his family. The world would probably describe these initiatives as eccentricities, but they were not.

In fact, Arnold Pent discovered something that all fathers would be well advised to consider: True Christian leadership in the household is born in the fire of adversity. The noblest and most God-blessed expressions of biblical fatherhood are cultivated always and only by taking the path less traveled.

I feel a special kinship to the Pent family. As a boy, I traveled constantly with my father, having visited forty-nine of the fifty states by the time I was eighteen. I sat with him for tens of thousands of miles and listened to books on tape, sermons, histories, and theology lectures. They were glorious times. We discussed everything, we saw great sights, and I always felt like I was a part of my father’s life mission. There is no doubt in my mind that my life was shaped by a father who made it his commitment to have me by his side and to daily speak words of life and love into my heart.

As Beall and I seek to raise our own children in the fear and admonition of the Lord, I daily think back to the example established for me by my father, and desire with all my heart to be for my children what my father was for me. Ten P’s in a Pod has not only filled our house with laughter, but it has reminded me of the mission that God has set before my bride and me. For this, I am truly grateful.

Over the years, many readers have been attracted to the endearing stories of family life found in such classics as Kathryn Forbes’ Mamma’s Bank Account (also called I Remember Mamma), Clarence Day’s Life with Father, and Frank Gilbreth’s Cheaper by the Dozen. The beauty of this book is that it combines the very best elements of those classics, but with a distinctive and uncompromising Gospel message. As a publisher, I consider it the highest honor that the Lord and His servants, the Pent family, have allowed Vision Forum to bring to press what we believe will be a new classic for twenty-first century families.
