There is a God worth dying for. There are people worth dying for. There is a Book worth dying for! Although this isn’t the way I’d want you to go . . .
You may not catch the cute kid stories I sometimes share on my personal Facebook page, but you’ll get a crossover right now. My four year old Michael is my only boy. He’s finally moving away from being the mischief maker, much to the answer of my prayers. 🙂 And part of that may be his budding friendship with his three-year-old sister Dorothea. Regretfully, yesterday evening found me easing Dorothea because of a Dorothy/Michael encounter.
I am so excited to hear that CPH is publishing a book regarding miscarriage!!! Never Forsaken: God’s Mercy in the Midst of Miscarriage releases August 28th, and I am already thanking God for it!
Just a short post today, but I’m in luck! My mother-in-law is sending me a bunch of classic abridgments: shortened versions for children. Yay!
I wonder if a similar thing could be done for Lutheran confessional pieces! 😉
Happy reading & writing!
I’m putting together another Lutheran resource list. This time it is books for little Lutherans by suggestion age-appropriate materials. Will this include some adult books? YES! But for now, I’ve learned about an illustrated Nicene Creed book!!!
Ok. I’ve closed the Bo Giertz Giveaway and have sent out an email to those who entered. (Let me know if that failed somehow.) Now, on to a Sarah Baughman Giveaway! This Lutheran author has graciously offered a free copy of A Flame in the Darkness, a solid and satisfying book set in Wittenberg during the Reformation. I reviewed it here. I really enjoyed it!
Summer is a wonderful time for reading, not just as individuals but also as a family. Here is a book written by LCMS Pastor Tyrel Bramwell: Finding the Truth in Story: Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Vol. 1. I asked him to write a few words for a guest post today to let us know a little bit more about the book.
Sometimes you may want to read a book to help stimulate your own thinking. That is, you kind of expect to disagree on things,or maybe you’re just not quite in the mood to read it but you think it’d be good for you. Anyway, you know a book may offer food for thought on the topic. For me, Building Faith One Child at a Time was such a book.
