I will be ordering up several copies for her group to buy at a discount through August 8th, 2011. If you would also like a copy at a discount, you may order the book online, but it will not ship out until the second week in August unless you get one of the 3 we have in stock currently. There is no need to use a coupon code, it is discounted already on the site.
Here are some reviews from other women who have read this book:
"EXCELLENT book! My husband started noticing positive changes in me once I started reading it. Every Christian woman should read this book. I'm sure I'll refer to it again and again." ~Amy
"I read this book every so often to refresh me on how my marriage should look. I love these books they are honest and hard hitting, but wonderful in setting straight the role of a woman in marriage.
I first read this book to fix my husband, but I ended up crying out to God to change myself after reading how wrong I was to be so selfish in my marriage.
Elizabeth George is not afraid to tell it how it is and she definitely says it in love." ~Taryn

We have added several new books to our site, with more to come!
Click on What's New to see these treasures. Many are around $6. Great summer reading or to add to your character-building book list for the school year!
We are currently reading The King's Daughter at bedtime. These stories were in nearly every orphanage in the 1800's. To think that such character-laden books were the norm then. Today, they would consider them politically incorrect because of the godly character that stems from the Bible and the references to God.
We read a strong story out of The Two Bears and other addresses to children by J.C. Ryle on the topic of God seeing all that we say and do, not mocking others and finally that we need Christ to change us. It was powerful. I was surprised how seriously my girls listened and took in the true story from the Bible when Elisha was mocked by the children and the sad results that came of that. Yes, it was a strong story, but it was truth, and in the end J.C. Ryle pointed the kids to our need of Christ.
God bless and thanks for stopping by!

The video above is so similar to what Toby and I experienced at the very same conference in 2009! We can't say enough about the vision behind Christian Heritage. Their focus of family-discipleship really has made such a huge transformation in our family vision! If you think it is just another home school conference to buy curriculum at, think again. Even if you are not sure that homeschooling is for you, discipling your children is something that every Christian parent wants to pursue. I encourage all to come and be challenged and inspired!
Books on the Path will be there. Stop on by our booth to take advantage of our conference special and enter our drawing for a free gift certificate! We look forward to seeing some familiar faces from last year and also meeting new ones!
Toby and April and our three brown-eyed girls!

We have many new books that will be uploaded onto the site soon. That would be a great time to spend your certificate. Don't feel the pressure to get your homeschooling readers all figured out now. Take your time in deciding next year's focus and then use your certificate. It is like having a sale when you want it.
We have also extended our Faith and Doctrine sale a few more days as the email didn't go out properly and some may have missed the promotion. Everything in this category is 30% off and some more than 80% off.

...if you think "a lazy, directionless attitude" might define your stay-at-home daughterhood
...if "blessing my family as a godly daughter or sibling" seems like an impossibility
...if you need encouragement to see your home as "a training ground for life ahead"
...if you sense a lack of "confident enthusiasm about home" in your everyday life
...if you feel unprepared to answer questions like "why are you staying at home"
P.S. If you are a daughter who might dismiss Joyfully at Home because you think it might condemn you or be too "out there" a concept for you, please reconsider! The author hopes that all daughters will consider staying at home, but she graciously understands that not all young women will pursue it. In Joyfully at Home she presents neither a cookie cutter "how to" book, nor a step by step one-size-fits all plan for young women. Joyfully at Home's pages overflow with encouragement any daughter needs...getting along with parents and siblings while growing in the Lord, learning to focus on others, developing a heart of ministry and service rather than living for everything "me," addressing faulty thinking about life issues, working on attitudes and being purposeful in life before marriage.... Yes, Jasmine Baucham addresses all her topics within the context of stay-at-home daughters; yet I found that what she discusses remains applicable, pertinent and useful in so many ways to any young women.

When one of my children are ready for this period of history or just need a boost in courage, compassion, self-sacrifice and true nobility, this will be one to pull off the shelf for them to enjoy.
P.S. For those of you following our customer on their adoption journey..they have posted an exciting announcement today saying that they have accepted a referral for a little boy named Abraham. You can check out their fundraising blog...here.

Books on the Path
Pure and undefiled religion before God the Father is this: to care for orphans and widows in their misfortune and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
Me adopt??? This was not a decision that came easy to us. God laid this desire on Donna's heart first 2 years ago after she read an article in an Above Rubies magazine. She thought, “Surely I am just being emotional,” as she never thought she could adopt. She didn't have any desire to adopt and felt that was something only special people could do. God gently nudged her and she began to pray about this and kept silent as she was not ready to let anyone know, she desired to wrestle this out with just her and God. Donna's biggest concern was Jeff. He was content with their size family and Donna knew he was looking forward to having all older children and no more little ones. But she knew if this desire was of God, then He would change Jeff's heart. He did!
The journey to adopt is filled with ups and downs, doubts and fears, joys and excitement, disappointments and victories. However, if God is for us, who can be against us! With every step of the way His blessing has been upon us and we can feel His pleasure as we continue to walk this journey step by step, praying for His perfect timing in all things.
To share our passion for the issues concerning adoption we found a nice article written by Christian Advocates for Adoption, please read and consider God's heart in this matter.
(Start quote) "Why Should Christians Adopt? The Old Testament contains more than 40 scriptures that show God's concern and compassion for orphans. God's people then and God's people now must care for this disenfranchised and neglected segment of society. Adoption is the most loving and permanent way to care for these little ones. Psalm 68:5-6a says about God, "A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families..."
God is the Creator of life. Every child, born and unborn, is created in His image and therefore has intrinsic worth! While the church has for many years championed the cause of the unborn through pro-life activity, it has not been nearly as supportive in finding homes for the newborn children of these crisis pregnancies. In fact, this is often one of the charges leveled by so-called pro-choice advocates! Adoption completes the cycle of a true pro-life position. If we are going to be pro-life, we must also be "pro-adoption!"
Adoption is good for a child. Through adoption a child gains the opportunity to live in a two-parent home with a loving mother and father. Through adoption these little ones are introduced to the loving embrace of Jesus Christ, affecting them for eternity. Practically speaking, adoptive homes are more likely to be stable, loving, and economically secure than the average home. Adoption gives a child an outstanding opportunity for success in life! (And the opportunity to grow up knowing Him!-Donna here)
When Christians adopt we demonstrate love to the watching world. We show love not only in word, but also in action. When we adopt, we choose to give our life away. After all, adoption is expensive; it is inconvenient; and finally, it lasts a lifetime! Why would we do this? Very simple: "We love because He first loved us." (1 John 4:19). Isn't it time for Christians to realize that our lives are not our own?
Now is the time for the Church to rise up and take seriously the Biblical mandate of James 1:27 "Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to care for orphans and widows in their distress..."
More and more followers of Christ are choosing to adopt. They do so carefully and intentionally after counsel and much prayer. It is not an easy decision for many believers, but it is very often the right decision. Jesus says, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these my brothers you did it for me." (Matthew 25:40)." (End Quote)
So with all the being said, we know that our hearts are to do the will of our Father and we desire to raise up more children to know Him and to make Him known to the nations! This is a missions lifestyle and we are looking at this as a part of fulfilling the Great Commission, not only are we going into all the world (Ethiopia) but we are bringing the world (our Ethiopian children) into our hearts and into our very home!
For a thorough look at the biblical mandate to adopt and the church’s responsibility to help adopting families please consider purchasing Adopted For Life by Russell D. Moore.
We have set up a couple of ways for folks to help us raise the necessary funds needed (Approx $30,000).
We have created a ministry called Threads of Hope.
Threads of Hope was created to help provide the necessary funds for the Hebert Family's adoption process. Threads of Hope provides modest dresses and skirts, our 16 yr old daughters photography, hot packs, soaps, candles and will be adding many more items to sell, all with the theme of modesty, purity, to glorify the Lord Jesus. 100% of proceeds go towards the adoption process!
We also have organic coffee from Ethiopia that helps our fund. For each bag of coffee, Just Love Coffee gives us $5 per bag. This is really good coffee! Great gifts for others! You can sign up to become a monthly coffee partner with us. Just have to make sure the link you use has our HebertFam name at the end of the link.
Just Love Coffee Shop
We will end with these verses that has truly been our driving force:
“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” James 1:27
“I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.” John 14:18
Soli Deo Gloria!
Jeff and Donna Hebert
