Where Two Seas Met

Everyday lessons from real-life stories

Robert Stauffer / Christian Light Publications

This book is chock-full of stories like these:

  • In the growing darkness, the two men paddled for all they were worth into a strong headwind and heavy waves.
  • When their arms grew tired, the boys altered their form of planting squash seeds until they heard a shout from behind them in the field.
  • It had been a long flight and Yong Cho stood to stretch his weary limbs. He could have afforded better accommodations, but flew coach for a reason.

Each event is true, and each was a learning experience. Where Two Seas Met includes these and many other true life-lessons told by a humble and honest story teller.

The author says, "The stories in this book reflect lessons the Lord has taught me through His Word and experiences He has permitted in my life. My hope and prayer is that the stories in this book will kindle a deeper longing in your heart to know the Lord and His Word."

Where Two Seas Met can be read to children, incorporated into family worship and school devotionals, or read for personal inspiration. More info...


Dew Drops - Book One

30 Days of Inspiration for the Woman's Soul

Rebecca Martin / Carlisle Press

Here's a refreshing drop of dew for your day.

We women tend to have lots of "Martha time" as we scurry about being housewives and mothers. The unmarried among us are equally busy as schoolteachers, caregivers, or earning a living in other ways.

Yet what good is all our "Martha time" unless we have our "Mary times" too? We need to pause at the feet of Jesus to receive refreshment like the morning dew.

Here's a book for our "Mary times." The stories portray women serving in their God-given roles. The main points of the inspirational parts are drawn from the writings and sermons of men. More info...


Tied With Heartstrings

True, encouraging stories of joy and grief from adoptive and foster families

Marian D. Reinford and Emily D. Martin / Christian Light Publications

The love binding together the hearts of families with foster and adopted children is no less enduring than bonds created by birth. Yet sometimes the circumstances that surround adoption can be the source of much heartache and frustration.

The writers of this book, most of them adoptive mothers, share the wisdom of experience. They know the realities of infertility, abandonment, early childhood trauma, biracial and international adoption, and the uncertainties of foster care. Other family members and adopted children, now adults, also share their viewpoints and experiences. They speak honestly about what it is like to grow together as a family united through the miracle of adoption.

These stories portray moments of desperation, laughter, encouragement, grief—and much more. Rejoice that in the end, sturdy heartstrings are tightly woven between parents and children whom God brings together in His own way. More info...


Adopted

Becky McGurrin / Christian Light Publications

The sky was overcast and gray on Pat's last day at the hospital. She wanted the best for her new daughter, and now the time had come, the last time she would see her daughter—forever. This is it, Pat said, in a quiet, sad corner of her mind. The day you give up the most precious thing you've ever been given.

Pat's decision to place Suzzane for adoption haunted her for years. And as she went on with life, through hard times and regrets, she began to hear God calling. And so it was that Pat went through an adoption process all over again—only this time her heart was happy as she was adopted by God and a loving church family.

Adopted is the true story of a woman whose life of bitter disappointment and heartrending loss was transformed by her growing awareness of a kind God who, in the end, surprised and blessed her beyond what she ever imagined. More info...


Follow Me

A sequel to A Captain for Hans and The Brickmakers

Rebecca Martin / Carlisle Press

Twelve-year-old Daniel Miller hardly knew how to feel about his parents' plan. Would they really cross the ocean to the land of William Penn? What an exciting idea!

Yet Daniel, grandson of the Hans Miller you first met in A Captain for Hans, and son of the Peter Miller you met in The Brickmakers, likes his snug home in the German Palatinate. An ocean voyage looks scary. And besides, what of his crippled friend, David Burkholder? He would never be able to go. And Daniel, along with his older brother Aaron, could not bear the thought off leaving him behind. More info...

The Woodcutter of Gutech

Early Classic Series

W. H. Kingston / TGS International

When the Reformation sweeps across Germany, a woodcutter and his grandchildren hear the story of Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and realize that salvation does not come through performing penances and confessing to the priests.

Not Regina

Christmas Carol Kauffman / Christian Light Publications

The 1500's were stirring times in Europe. Luther nailed his ninety-five theses to a church door in Germany, exploding a powder keg of unrest that seethed for decades.

Against this background, Regina Strahm found herself caught between two religious factions in Switzerland. Her parents repeatedly warned her against the Anabaptist heresy, and the young man she came to love had no doubts about the state church's claims.

But why then did Zwingli's official religion fail to satisfy her spiritual emptiness? And why were the Anabaptists willing to die for their faith? Regina discovered why, and found a joy she had never known. More info...


Daddy, Are You Sad?

Lily A. Bear / TGS International

As humans, we look to the future with hope. We have dreams and plans for the years ahead. But sometimes God calls us to walk on paths far different than those we would have chosen.

This was the case for Donny and Nicole Good. As a young-married couple with an infant son, they had dreams of a happy family and a long future together. But when Danny received a shattering health diagnosis, those dreams were replaced with haunting questions. Was God really good? Why was He allowing this? Could there be any purpose in this devastating experience? The future looked dark and foreboding.

This story is a journey through the ups and downs of Donny's illness, but more than that, it is a spiritual pilgrimage toward surrender and acceptance of God's plan. As Donny and Nicole progress on this journey, they discover God in ways they could not have imagined before.

Daddy, Are You Sad? is a heartrending story, yet it is also a story of hope. It offers hope because it chronicles triumph over doubt, discouragement, and death, a triumph possible only through God. More info...


Philip and the Toy Truck

Martha Horst / Lamp and Light Publishers

At the market with his mother, Philip spies a toy truck that he wants. His mother tells him that he cannot have the truck. He already has a ball, she says, and the Bible says, "Be content with such things as ye have." Philip is not content, though, and so he steals his friend's toy truck. But this does not bring the satisfaction he expected. Philip finds happiness and contentment only after his parents help him return the stolen truck and clear up the lie he had told his teacher about it.

Dishonest children often grow into dishonest adults. One of the greatest gifts parents can give their children is to first be an example of honesty—and then make sure their children follow that example. More info...
