Books of Beauty

This week I have been a reading mother, amongst all the other things required of me! As a family we are reading Jotham's Journey: A Storybook for Advent. I really had no idea when I bought this that the message of consequences for life's choices would be so powerfully displayed. In most places this book is hard to find because it is towards the middle of the advent season, but if your family is looking for a quality book to focus on the Christmas season, this is a really good one.


The other book we are reading as our history read aloud, Alone, Yet Not Alone: The Story of Barbara Leininger. It is the amazing story of God's providential protection of two young girls after their captivity by indians during the French and Indian War. It is a moving account that brought me to tears more than once.



God's faithfulness and the faith of Barbara Leininger were powerfully displayed in this book. All I can say is this is one beautiful story.
