It’s a gorgeous fall day here by the lake, and here in the Boats room we have a variety of rowboats for your use as we go through these books. So hop on board, grab an oar . . . and let’s push off from the shore. Ripples echo against the sides of the boats, tiny whirlpools swirl away in the deep blue as oars rise and fall, orange leaves hover on the surface, and sunbeams glitter in a thousand reflections off the water.

Take a deep breath and enjoy the crisp air as we wind down our week . . .

The Kneeling Christian by An Unknown Christian 

Every believer needs to read this book.

It gives a picture of prayer that we need to grasp. It inspires the reader with a glimpse of heavenly perspective. Our God is faithful. Are we praying?

Glad Tidings: A Flash Fiction Advent Calendar by Angie Thompson 

These short stories are such heart-grabbers! In just a few words, the author not only sets the scene but gets us into the hearts, heads, and shoes of relatable, life-like characters. Christmas spirit permeates this book, and so many angles are touched upon in this story: Christmas in a poor family, Christmas in hospitals, working on Christmas, tender moments between family members, Christmas through the eyes of children, Christian with the elderly, Christmas festive and Christmas bleak, Christmas historical and Christmas modern, Christmas in fields and Christmas in feasts. Hope, love, joy, peace, and purpose shine from these pages. Don’t miss this collection!

Fellowship of Light series by Chelsea Burden 

Exquisitely-drawn characters, gorgeous vintage writing, an intriguing plot, wonderful spiritual themes, and a beautiful story-voice. Don’t miss this first installment in The Fellowship of Light series!

Thirty Days Until Thirty by Sarah Holman

I loved this short story! A woman is counting down the thirty days before she turns thirty with special things each day.

Anything (King’s Daughters Story Collection, #1) by KDWC authors

What a heartwarming, deep Christian collection! I enjoyed each story so much. Character depth and thought-provoking life truths proved to be the stars of this collection. I smiled, sighed, and sympathized as I read each story. Prepare to be encouraged!

It’s time to row the boats back to shore. I certainly enjoyed our time here on the lake. Be sure to check out the other rooms, and don’t forget! Many books are FREE or 99 CENTS today! Head over to readanotherpage.com to find the full list.

Books With a Baby! {Five Fall Favorites 2021 Day 5}

p

Come to the bonfire, my friend, and warm up on this cool autumn evening! I hope you’ve enjoyed the day here at the Literary Lodge.  I’m glad you decided to stop by before turning in for the night. Have a seat, wrap up in a blanket if you’re still chilly, and let’s sing a few childhood songs before we share our top five favorite books that include a baby.

Welcome to day five of Five Fall Favorites, a week-long book party hosted by Read Another Page and I with party “rooms” at various literary blogs! Each blog has a different theme for the day and each blog shares five favorite books in a specific genre. There are also giveaways and free books, so don’t forget to check out the rest of the rooms for today’s freebie (link at the end of this post). It’s the last day to enter the giveaway!

p-3

Flames crackle. Smoke wisps upwards and disappears. Logs burn and disintegrate. A warm glow fills the air, mingled with the memorable scent of a campfire. Crickets and frogs provide a background chorus as the very first stars peep out above.

Here, in the warm coziness of the orange circle, with faces dimmed and camaraderie present, let’s share some favorite books that include babies.

Baby Mine by Kellyn Roth 

This is a sweet historical fiction story! And the baby is so dear!

From the description: “Amaliya Preobrazhensky lives with her mother in a tiny apartment. They don’t have much except each other, but that’s all right. Every day, God provides. When Amaliya’s father, who hasn’t been around since before she was born, returns and a custody battle begins, it’s hard for her to understand. Can a man she’s never met really take her away from her beloved mother? Why would God let such a thing happen? Sensitivity Warning: this novella features mistreatment of characters based upon their ethnicity (Russian) and other prejudices (unmarried mother). Though good triumphs in the end, it is not before a mighty struggle.

Peanut Butter Families Stick Together by Bill Butterworth

This book is full of hilarious family stories by a dad with four children: a girl, two boys, and a mischievous but delightful baby. In it, the author relates the humor of trying to get to church on time, a family Saturday out to breakfast, a trip to an unusually-themed doctor’s office, and much more. With chapter titles like “Hospitality May Be Hazardous to Your Health,” this book won’t fail to bring a smile to your face.

The Millers Series by Mildred A. Martin 

The Millers books feature another family learning life lessons in everyday moments. Sharon, Peter, Timmy, Laura, and the baby – Beth – have many teachable moments together – some of them quite memorable, like the time baby Beth accidentally knocked down her brothers’ block tower and provided the boys a lesson on sudden anger. These books are highly recommended!

To Save a Life by Ryana Lynn Peterson

I had the privilege of editing this book, releasing October 22, and it’s amazing. There’s a baby – perhaps more than one! – who is the sweetest and dearest little thing. The story revolves around the baby, and it’s filled with Biblical and pro-life themes. Don’t miss this wonderful, sweet, and sometimes tough story!

Sustainer’s Smile by Erika Mathews

This one’s mine and it features babies everywhere! It’s possibly my favorite book I’ve ever written. The themes of life, God’s sustaining hand, and finding a smile in suffering shine through the pages. It may make you shed a tear and smile along with Liliora Ellith as she makes peace with her past and discovers her future among the cradles of Taerna’s babies, born and unborn.

A helpless newborn . . . that’s exactly how twenty-four-year-old Liliora Ellith feels in her efforts to speak up on behalf of the youngest members of Taerna’s pleasure-driven society. Her tender heart for the defenseless and deep aversion to conflict throw Lili’s soul into turmoil when tragedy opens her eyes to the quiet yet heartrending war on Taerna’s babies—both born and unborn. Adon Olam’s word coupled with a secret in her own past fuel her determination, but the challenges ahead of her threaten to send her spiraling into hopeless depression. At the very end of herself, can her own utter insufficiency be anything less than the catalyst for complete disaster?

~~~

The fire burns low and silence descends. Sleepy figures huddle in camp chairs, listening to the sounds of the night. Quiet . . . peace . . . the world is at rest.

Hope Books! {Five Fall Favorites 2021 Day 4}

The door creaks open slowly. An orange leaf floats down to rest in the dust near the doorway. The scent of hay fills the air. Pumpkin rest in the corners, piled for winter use. Readers of all ages file in, find a cozy corner in the hay, and settle in. Welcome to the Barns room!

Today’s theme is books about hope or with the theme of hope.

Discovering Hope by Rachel Rittenhouse

From the description: “Discovering Hope is the diary of a 13-year-old girl, Bethany Woodsmall, younger sister to Carolyn, the beloved character of Finding Faith. Bethany and her family struggle to adjust to the many changes in her family, and it seems she is stuck in the middle with her family pulling two different ways. Will Bethany be able to discover the hope of God’s faithfulness as she experiences these difficult times?”

I very much enjoyed this clean, sweet family novel and the hope that filled its pages!

Fanny’s Hope Chest by Sarah Holman
 

I signed up for a pre-release copy of this book on a whim. I think it was actually God’s doing. Wow, I was not expecting this story to be so powerful, so convicting, so amazing. 

Ellie was such a relatable character. She’s near my age and she’s discovering that life doesn’t always go like you hoped and planned . . . And that’s hard. Now, while she might be mourning her singleness, I find myself struggling with the exact same things in other areas of life… and in both cases, the answer is the same. Ellie was so well written and realistic. I also enjoyed getting to know Fanny. The twists of Fanny’s story, told gradually, really built up my interest in her life and that mysterious hope chest. 

Ah yes. The hope chest. During the early chapters of the story, I was a bit biased. I never had a hope chest, and never wanted one, because it seems that it is easy for a hope chest to encourage “hope” in the wrong thing: namely, marriage and a family when that may or may not be God’s plan. A hope chest would only fuel meditations on romance, marriage, and a home that might not even be in my future and would only encourage wasted daydreams on building a castle in the air that would crumble to dust. Now, there’s NOTHING whatsoever wrong with wanting to be a wife and mother and nothing wrong with preparing one’s self for that potential calling one day (and indeed it’s wise!), but for me, I didn’t want to dwell on possibilities before God said yes. And in this book, I witnessed how all the time, energy, and money the characters put into filling hope chests indeed led to temptations to discontentment and to planning an unknown future.

HOWEVER. As the story unfolded and Fanny kept talking, I began to Suspect. And while I didn’t guess the ending, my heart started exploding with the possibilities for a TRUE “HOPE” chest. When the ending was revealed, I was smiling and almost crying. It was so beautiful, so meaningful, so Biblical, so full of true HOPE and surrender and trust and love and blessing and joy and peace… wow. I loved this little book and its message and everything. I loved how the hope chest became a TRUE hope chest! I loved how God turns every moment and memory of pain into something precious and beautiful and good and eternal!

Single ladies (and gents!), read this book. Married people, read this book. You will be blessed.

Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments by Laura Wifler and Emily Jenson 

Sometimes it’s hard to find the hope in mundane life – especially when it’s full of family and home challenges. Risen Motherhood: Gospel Hope for Everyday Moments addresses this beautifully in the area of motherhood. I loved how each chapter brings perspective back to the gospel – to God’s view of the situation. What an excellent read!

Fireproof by Eric Wilson

When a marriage seemed hopeless . . . the love of God provides hope.

Very good story about God’s work in a “hopeless” marriage.

Finding Hope and A Strand of Hope by Amanda Tero 

Finding Hope is a short, sweet prequel to A Strand of Hope. Both books are historical fiction, and A Strand of Hope follows a fictional librarian of Willow Hollow – one who travelled on horseback to bring books to people in the mountains. I truly enjoyed the important lessons and character growth that Lena experiences. Her story and situation is so, so sad, but I appreciate how it was used to gently teach her about bitterness, forgiveness, accepting help from others, bearing all things, believing all things, hoping all things, enduring all things, and demonstrating true love.

Readers of all ages squint in the sunlight as they mount the bicycle of their choice, books in baskets. Soon, a bright array weaves in and out on the path, and we set off down the trail.

As we ride, I adjust my microphone and speak up. “Time for today’s top five go-to books.”

Ishmael/Self-Raised by E.D.E.N. Southworth 

If you’ve been around for any length of time, you’ve probably heard me talk about this novel. It’s one of my all-time favorite books, and for good reason. The writing is superb. The characters are wonderful. The plot is gripping and exciting with plenty of twists and turns. The spiritual lessons are spot-on. The style and tone is old-fashioned and vintage and warm. And Ishmael himself is an inspiration! How he seeks to follow Christ – it’s a challenge.

Hind’s Feet on High Places/Mountains of Spices by Hannah Hurnard

These two books are an allegory along the lines of Pilgrim’s Progress – only in a slightly different style. The story of how Much-Afraid went to the High Places and what happened afterwards is a continual encouragement in the Christian life. I could read these books over and over. If you haven’t read them yet, you have a treat in store for you!

The Practice of the Presence of God by Brother Lawrence

This is a non-fiction Christian living book that I could read daily and not get tired of. It’s practical; it’s Biblical; it’s DEEP! It’s challenging to my walk with God. It’s encouraging and inspiring. Can we truly practice the presence of God in our daily life every day? God says yes – and this book talks about how.

Stepping Heavenward by Elisabeth Prentiss

Once again, this book inspires me to highest in Christian living. This is a fiction story written in a journal style, covering the life of a young sixteen-year-old until she’s in her forties and aware that she doesn’t have much time left on earth. Her journey from preoccupation with self (though with a real desire for Christ, even if there were often struggles with not wanting to pray or not finding delight in spiritual things) into knowing Him through real and hard daily life – the mundane and the exciting, the ordinary and the extraordinary, through different seasons – is relatable and encouraging.

The Normal Christian Life by Watchman Nee

This is another non-fiction book that has so much depth that I go back to it repeatedly. Watchman Nee had a grasp on Christ and walking with Him that I aspire to attain to!

As the bike shed appears on the horizon, we cruise down the final stretch of the trail, crunching over the browns, reds, and yellows coating the path. Thank you so much for riding with me today! I will see you tomorrow for yet another enjoyable autumn activity. Until then, enjoy today’s other party stops, stop by the Books room for your free short story, and don’t forget the giveaway!

Good! Now that you’re loaded up, let’s trek up these rocks to enjoy the view of the lake and share some of our favorite family books – books the whole family can read and enjoy together.

The Mysterious Star byJoanne Marxhausen

I love this little Christmas book, and I love reading it to my children. In this story, Jamie wishes he could find a big, bright, beautiful star like the wise men saw, and he sets out to find one. He’s disappointed when he doesn’t seem to find anything, but he does find a lot of other things – and the ending is sweet, satisfying, and an important lesson for our lives.

The New Amplified Pilgrim’s Progress by Jim Pappas

I LOVE the original Pilgrim’s Progress, and it’s rare that I also love a rewrite of an original book – but this is the one! This book contains basically all of the original, but it’s expanded into more of a story format with a bit more background, interactions from characters, and life/Biblical lessons. It makes John Bunyan’s wonderful tale a bit more accessible to young minds. I grew up listening to the audio version of this book, and I highly recommend it. 

The Jesus Storybook Bible by Sally Lloyd-Jones 

I started reading this book to my children, but I found I was learning perhaps more than they were! This book does an excellent job of retelling the stories of Scripture in a way that shows how Jesus and the kingdom of God and His eternal purpose are woven through every page of the Bible – Old Testament and New Testament. Each story brings the perspective back to these things.

Moral Lessons of Yesteryear by A. L. Byers

This is one of those delightful old-fashioned books with sweet and satisfying stories for all ages! I love it when engaging characters, a solid storyline, and a sound Biblical message combine in one place!

The Song of the King by Max Lucado 

This is an allegory of life, and I love how it reveals the focus of keeping our eyes and ears on God no matter what else in life clamors for our attentions and seeks to drown Him out. It’s an engaging and fun medieval story with a deep lesson.

Ransomed by Elizabeth Ender

This book is both an adventure and an allegory of the Greatest Adventure. It’s short – almost a booklet – but it’s so so good. If you haven’t read it, get yourself a copy now. It’s a tale of you and of me.

“Powerful…beautiful… so true.” These are the first words that came to mind the first time I read Ransomed. 

Ransomed sets the mood in the very first sentence. It seems impossible to set a scene so quickly, but the author does so. Although an entire background story could be behind the opening scene, further description is not needed, for we are right there, drawn into the story. The love and care are deep and real. The contrast between the quietness and the danger is astounding – and yet it is there. The deceit of the enemy is portrayed realistically and very fittingly. Persuasiveness comes across through the dialogue. The first person point of view puts the reader into the shoes of the main character – and main character is not named, for it is me. It is you.

Love – true, deep, strong love, not mushy love as modern culture has defined it – is portrayed powerfully. At the end of each section, short gripping sentences clinch the transition. The story flows smoothly and naturally with power in the way the sentences are fashioned. Danger, deep emotion, fright, hopelessness, deliverance, trust, lies, doubts, and truth are dealt with in this story. The whole thing is very well put together and very effective.

It is thought-provoking allegory that leaves the reader with a challenge for life. I really enjoyed reading it and it was well worth my time! Even now, after I have read it several times, it still grips me and challenges me, refocusing my perspective on life and what truly matters. Read Ransomed. You will be blessed.

Counted Worthy by Leah E. Good

Thought-provoking, outstanding, realistic, clean, refreshing, thrilling… I don’t usually read or enjoy dystopian, but Counted Worthy threw the genre into a refreshing, clean, uplifting setting. Nothing questionable was present. What’s more, Counted Worthy is a well-written adventure story centered around Biblical values. Heather’s feelings, thoughts, fears, and plans were realistic and relatable.

England Adventure by Kelsey Bryant

An excellent sequel to an excellent first book! England Adventure was deeper than Family Reunion and also more varied. The plot moved slowly, but there was enough adventure that I didn’t mind. The characters were just as excellent as book one. Reanna did seem to disappear during the first half, as she was rarely mentioned, but as Marielle’s interaction with her increased, it balanced out. This book does deal with a tough issue, so it may not be for everyone, but the issue was covered discretely and wisely. The conflict between the girls’ varying interests was brought out well. Very realistic, interesting, and memorable.

Endurance: Shackleton’s Incredible Voyage by Alfred Lansing 

This book has been a favorite of mine since the first time I read it. The gripping true adventure of Sir Ernest Shackleton and his men is amazing, and this is a well-written account of it. Shackleton’s dedication and determination to bring his entire crew home alive in the midst of so many impossible dangers is stunning and inspiring.

Bruchko by Bruce Olson

This one is a missionary story of adventure. Bruce Olson’s faith and mission work are dramatically related in this account – his struggles and victories as he seeks God in reaching the Motilone tribe for Jesus Christ.
