    • the hiding place by corrie ten boom

      Yes, this book was recommended last month. But it is such an important resource for all of us, that it is being recommended for the second month in a row.


      Corrie ten Boom was a Dutch watchmaker who became a heroine of the resistance, a survivor of Hitler's concentration camps, and one of the most remarkable Evangelists of the twentieth century. In World War II she and her family risked their lives to help Jews and underground workers escape from the Nazis, and for their work they were tested in the infamous Nazi death camps. This riveting account reveals how Corrie and her family were able to save many of God’s chosen people. Corrie survived to tell the story of how faith ultimately triumphs over evil and that there is no pit so deep that God’s love is not deeper still.

    • nurturing great kids: once a day devotional

      365 practical insights for parenting with grace by dan seaborn

      Recommended by Shana Hall

      Whether you are a new parent, an experienced parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle, or a child care giver this daily devotional will give godly guidance in how to deal with children day in and day out. Children are a precious gift from God and are placed in our care to teach, learn from, and help grow. No one will get child rearing 100% perfect, but with godly advice and encouragement, we can strive at better achieving the goal. The devotionals are short and are a quick read.  Each begins with a verse and ends with a few things to think about. I personally enjoy this devotional because I can pick it up and glean something new every time.
