The barns and pastures held a herd of cattle that was known to be one of the finest in the area.
C. H. Spurgeon :: Sincere Seekers Assured Finders
Leroy enjoyed his work on the home farm, but life held more than just work. He also enjoyed his friends and their frequent ball games. Eva, a fine young lady, also held a place in his thoughts; and altogether, it seemed that life was working out in a satisfactory and comfortable way.

With her sister Amy and her brother Alex to keep her company, the days would fly swiftly until Father and Mother returned from their missionary trip to India. But the cottage on Sage Street is small, and Grandpa and Grandma do not have a garden, because plants do not grow well in the Sage Street area. The rest of the neighbors living on Sage Street are older people—like Grandpa and Grandma.
What will three lively children do all summer? That first evening, Andrea's thoughts churned as she prepared for bed. If only she had a place to plant flowers, she would be content. But it was out of the question , for the soil was so poor that most plants refused to grow. It was too bad, for surely the older people who lived in the other cottages would also enjoy a hobby like growing flowers.
Then—the very next day—an empty sandbox frame sparks Andrea's great idea. Not only would she grow flowers on Sage Street, but she could also be a missionary while she was at it.

The four volumes of My Quiet Time with God Every person has a deep need for fellowship, camaraderie, and companionship with others. But in our fallen world, rejection is commonplace and painful. We hurt when we are left out or purposely excluded, especially when it involves our family, our close friends, or our church.
Rejection has driven many people to become rebellious, controlling, intemperate, or obsessed with their performance. But being rejected does not doom us to living in misery and bitterness. Jesus offers a far better way. As believers, we are spiritually united with Jesus. In Him we are loved and accepted. In Him we receive the declaration of full approval from the Father. In Him we have the promise of being received into glory for eternity. This is an unspeakable wonder!
Accepted in Jesus is more than an exploration of rejection. It points the way to a life centered on Jesus, a life that takes up residence in Him. In Jesus we are not only delivered from the ways of self, but the life and vitality of Jesus also thrive in our relationships. We can be people of love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness Jenna, the older sister, was beautiful. Sarah was the next born—the ordinary one.

I share my testimony for two reasons: First, it is my song of victory to God in thanks for His glorious freedom and healing, as well as a declaration to Satan that I am done believing his lies. Second, I share it because I am convinced this is a much-needed message, especially among youth girls. I have an urgency to offer hope to young women who feel of little worth, inferior, or who think of themselves as failures.
In Christ, there is a way of escape from these debilitating feelings. This series is especially prepared to give extra reading practice to first-graders. The Bible verses in these puzzles remind us of the importance of being joyful. The Bible tells us to "rejoice evermore" and "In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you. Book 2 of the Little Eli Series.

Some of my favorite chapters are J. The essays are first-rate, on many important topics, from a diverse group of scholars, each contributing from their particular specialty. The book is well-organized into four parts, but it still feels a little disjointed at times. One of the really valuable features of the book is the appendix, which is an interview with Antony Flew.

It is an enormously encouraging story. The other books on this list are more comprehensive in their approach to Christianity. For most people, that is a good way to go. There are objections that need to be resolved, many questions that need sorting out, and lots to establish if a positive case is to be made. Fair enough.
