Our church just purchased a RightNow Media library Subscription for our members. Since there are over 2,000 videos trying to choose a video to watch may seem overwhelming. As I find time to watch videos I will post information on a few the resources I really thought were good, helpful and/or interesting. I may not even agree with all the content of the videos I recommend but I will list the ones I think other people should watch. I plan on posting recommendations regularly so you might want to check back often to see the latest suggestions. I may also post suggestions from other River Rock Church people here as I receive them.

Drum Roll, please…… Here are the first six videos I recommend.
#1 The Art of Marriage by Family Life Ministries
God can turn any marriage into a masterpiece. Your marriage and the marriages around you are colored by personalities, passions and experiences. Making marriage work is a divinely inspired art form. The Art of Marriage® consists of six video sessions that can be used in a one-day event or a weekend format, such as Friday evening through Saturday afternoon. Each participant also uses a manual that contains projects, articles and tips to help them live what they learn.
#2 Five Things God Uses to Grow Your Faith by Andy Stanley
Imagine how different your outlook on life would be if you had absolute confidence that God was with you. Imagine how differently you would respond to difficulties, temptations, and even good things if you knew with certainty that God was in all of it and was planning to leverage it for good. In other words, imagine what it would be like to have PERFECT faith. In this study, Andy Stanley builds a biblical case for five things God uses to grow BIG faith.
#3 Parenting: The Early Years by Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott
What Kind of Parent Do You Want To Be? Who you are matters more than what you do. When your kids are all grown up, how will they remember you? In these six sessions, Drs. Les and Leslie Parrott will take you through a parenting approach you won’t find in any other parenting resource. *In reality TV style, take a sneak peek at real-life parenting moments and vulnerable questions from 20 families. As a Bible study, discover 10 Biblical traits that will make you a better person and a better parent. Then begin to intentionally pass on key traits to your kids.
#4 Stepping Up (Men) by Dennis Rainey
Dig deeper into what it means to step up and live a courageous life with Stepping Up: A Call to Courageous Living Video Series. Based on his book by the same title, Dennis Rainey, along with Matt Chandler, Bill Bennett, Tony Dungy, Robert Lewis, Voddie Baucham, Stu Weber, and others unpack what biblical manhood looks like and what it means to be a godly, courageous man in today\’s world.
Through engaging stories, expert teaching, humorous vignettes, man-on-the-street interviews, and personal insights, these men\’s ministry leaders call every man to become courageous leaders in their own lives, marriages, churches, and communities. Accompanied by small-group discussion and individual follow-up exercises, men of every age will learn action tools for gospel-centered living to empower them to be true heroes in their families and communities.
#5 The Treasure Principle (Biblical Finance) Workshop by Randy Alcorn
Most people can significantly give to the Kingdom of God, but they don’t know how or haven’t been taught the awesome eternal benefits of sowing into God’s work on Earth. Author Randy Alcorn calls it a hidden treasure, and we all must learn this life-changing principle to find that hidden treasure.
The Treasure Principle Workshop, the first study in Crown’s new “Workshop in a Box” series, teaches the joy of giving. Some Bible studies use guilt as a motivation for giving; this one doesn’t. In a dramatic teaching style, this video workshop literally inspires those who watch to learn the principles of giving in a way that causes lasting change.
#6 What’s In The Bible? Vol 4: Battle For The Promised Land (for Children) by Phil Vischer
Buck Denver and friends continue their quest to learn about the Bible in number four of the 13 What’s in the Bible? series. In Battle for the Promised Land, they visit Old Testament books Joshua, Judges and Ruth.
