Before David Ponder ever visited Truman in The Traveler's Gift, Michael Holder began his journey as the last young traveler to receive the unique gifts of wisdom offered by historical greats.
In his senior year of high school, Michael hits rock bottom. Having been caught in the wrong place at the wrong time, he has now been suspended from the track team and lost his college scholarship. His coach is angry, his parents are disappointed, and he's diving headfirst into a downward spiral. Facing the bleak future ahead, he sees no way out and wonders if life is really worth living. But with some divine intervention, he's given a second chance when he's offered a once-in-a-lifetime journey of discovery.
Rewritten to engage the minds of teens and tweens, The Young Traveler's Gift is sure to encourage and enlighten young men and women as they prepare to face the journeys that lie ahead.
The popularity of the film Fireproof made one thing certain: we as Christians are continually seeking ways to galvanize our faith against the fires of the world around us. And there is arguably no time in our lives when our faith is more under fire than our teenage years. As young people struggle to learn who they are, they can only forge an indestructible identity by remembering whose they are.
Using Bible-based teachings and practical applications, Fireproof Your Life for Teens will walk them through the process of building an invincible, impenetrable faith. And this is not a faith that just shows up on Sunday mornings, but one that reaches deep into their hearts and stretches out to encompass every area of their lives. From decision-making to relationships to money, Michael Catt and Amy Parker will show teens how a fireproof faith and biblical principles play an integral part in every aspect of their day-to-day lives, as well as in shaping their future.
We make life so complicated. Trials and temptations will come, but the solution is simple. For every single situation we are going to face, for every decision we are going to make, the answer is there. And it begins and ends with God. Like Shadrach, Meschach, and Abednego in that famous fiery furnace, when we learn to stand with God, we can all be fireproof.

“My God won’t let me do that.”
These seven words of boundless hope would irreversibly change the life of the teenage boy who spoke them.
On April 7, 1994 the life of Frederick Ndabaramiye and his family changed forever as the Rwandan genocide erupted in their homeland. When Frederick faced those same genocidaires a few years later, he noted the machete that hung from the right hand closest to him and wondered if his would soon be added to the layers of dried blood that clung to the blade. Either way, young Frederick knew that he wouldn’t be able to carry out the orders just given to him, to raise that blade against the other passengers of the bus, regardless of the race marked on their identity cards.
That bold decision would cause Frederick to lose his hands. But what the killers meant for harm, God intended for good. The cords that bound him served as a tourniquet, saving his life when his hands were hacked away. This new disability eventually fueled Frederick’s passion to show the world that disabilities do not have to stop you from living a life of undeniable purpose. From that passion, the Ubumwe Community Center was born, where "people like me" come to discover their own purposes and abilities despite their circumstances.
Through miraculous mercy and divine appointment, Frederick forgives those who harmed him and goes on to fully grasp his God-given mission. In this extraordinary true story of forgiveness, faith, and hope, you will be challenged, convicted, and forever converted to a believer of the impossible.
