Trailblazer: A Visionary's Journey

An evangelist and his family embrace the hardships and adventures of spreading the Gospel

Rachael Lofgren / TGS International

As the young rebel rode through town on his spirited horse, he reveled in the freedom he had to make his own choices. He could have fun showing off his riding prowess. He could choose his own friends. Someday he would go anywhere he liked, and he would show his family and community all he could do.

But a change was in the making, and Sanford found it harder and harder to enjoy his selfish pursuits. And when he finally yielded himself to God, he found that the real adventures were only beginning. Now, instead of making a name for himself, he wanted to glorify God's name. And God was faithful to provide Sanford with many opportunities to do just that.

When a man who is eager for new challenges embraces God's call, anything can happen. God used Sanford to expand His kingdom in new and innovative ways. Yet, while the trailblazer experienced many exciting adventures, his life consisted primarily of serving God in ordinary days filled to the brim with hard work, difficult questions, and relational challenges.

Weeping for Abigail

A Prodigal Daughter Returns

Lily A. Bear / Christian Light Publications

Abigail had given her heart to the Lord at a young age, but as she faced the temptations of youth, she was lured away from God. A shy girl who only wanted to be home with her loving Christian family, she hated school, where she felt excluded and unaccepted. More seriously, she failed to take her burdens to God and her parents.

Instead, Abby became friends with ungodly teenagers at the ice-cream shop where she worked. Secretly she planned to live life the way she wanted as soon as she was eighteen. Abby plunged deeper into sin, becoming enslaved to alcohol, adultery, and selfish pleasures. Grief-stricken, her parents and church never stopped praying for Abigail's salvation.

Weeping for Abigail is a thrilling, true account of how God won back His lost and miserable daughter. More info...

The Rooster's Fate
and Other Stories

Elaine Martin / Rod and Staff Publishers

Pepper strutted boldly down the feed alley toward the boys, crowing and flapping his colorful wings with dignity. The rooster had been ruling the barnyard animals for a number of years, and he was as proud and kingly as ever.

"Can he fly?" Brian asked.

"I don't know," Melvin admitted. "I never saw him fly, but surely, being a bird, he should be able to fly." Suddenly he got an idea. "Why not take pepper up the forty-foot silo and let him slowly float down to the ground? That would be a good way to see if he can fly."

The boys caught the big rooster, and Melvin hurried up the silo to try out his plan. But the experiment didn't turn out as he thought it would, and two sober boys were left with the results of their careless and hasty actions.

The Rooster's Fate and Other Stories is a collection of forty well-written stories that will help children see the importance of right attitudes toward themselves, and their responsibilities, their circumstances, their siblings, and their peers. Written for ten- to fourteen-year-olds. More info...

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...
