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!
