“God is our shelter and strength,
always ready to help in times of trouble.
So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken
and the mountains fall into the ocean depths;
even if the seas roar and rage,
and the hills are shaken by violence.” Psalm 46:1-3

Don’t you just love it that these verses say that God is always ready to help in times of trouble? He wants to walk beside us and help us. It doesn’t say that there aren’t going to be troubles. It says there can be horrendous troubles–life happenings way beyond our control, but even then we need not dwell in fear. Even then. He is with us.

I don’t think it says that we will not have moments of fear. We just don’t have to live there. Like Psalm 91 says, we can dwell in His fortress.

I think some of the ways we dwell in His fortress are to fill our minds with His loving word and live in obedience to His laws; rely on His strength and the certainty of His power to protect and provide; and, to enjoy media and other activities that speak of His presence and His care.

The last is the reason for this blog. We want you to hear about books that will uplift you and and the kids. We want to help you tell your beloved children that God is, that He is good, and that He can and does save.

Book Lists in the menu at the top will take you to titles we recommend. Books are divided by the age of the expected reader and whether the books are non-fiction or fiction.

You will notice that I have not started with our long list of picture books recommendations. You might wonder what I did with it. It’s still there. I moved it to below the list of books we recommend for college/working people. I thought, at this time, you might need recommendations for elementary, middle school, high school, college and young working people more. Also books for those age groups are more often available as e-books.

(She taught seventh grade and preschool.)  Her latest works for children are I Get a Clue and We All Get a Clue, mystery novels for girls 10-13. For several years she was a freelance reviewer of children’s and teen’s literature for the Focus on the Family website.

On This Foundation, by Lynn Austin and published by Bethany House Publishers (2015), is the third book in The Restoration Chronicles series. It is a fictional account of the Bible story of Nehemiah. Many of the details and side plots are fictional, but the Bible verses and basic story are true. The novel contains drama, mystery, spiritual depth, growth and joy in the Lord.

The story begins by delving into the past and present of the main character, Nehemiah, who appears to be in his thirties. He is the cup bearer for King Artaxerxes, in the citadel of Susa, one of the capitals of the Persian Empire. Nehemiah’s job is to oversee the food and wine brought into the Citadel. He is responsible to see that the king’s food and wine are safe to eat, often tasting them himself. He also secures the Citadel from vendors who themselves might pose a threat to the king.

Nehemiah takes his job very seriously. He knows that living within the walls of the Citadel provides only a measure of safety for its occupants. The king’s father, Xerxes, had been murdered in his own bed chamber by one of his own courtiers.

Nehemiah’s parents had also been murdered though living in the Citadel. Twenty-eight years before, when Nehemiah was only eight, his father had opened the door of the family’s sleeping quarters to an acquaintance. He and his wife had been killed. Nehemiah and his younger brothers had hidden behind furniture and survived.

As this novel begins, his brothers, who have been living in Jerusalem and whom he has not seen in nearly thirteen years, arrive in Susa to speak with him. Hananiah, or Hanani, works as a scribe as their father had. He and Ephraim have come with a delegation from Judah. The delegation is seeking a reduction in the taxes they are paying to King Artaxerxes. Many of the Jews in Judah are destitute. There is a drought that has lasted two growing seasons.

In addition, the walls of the city of Jerusalem are still broken down though it has been more than a hundred years since the Babylonians captured the city, demolishing its fortifications and burning its gates. The city’s inhabitants are vulnerable to attacks and robberies. The Temple is unprotected. The Levite guards have been unable to protect the temple treasury.

The Jews are also hated by their surrounding neighbors, the Samaritans, Edomites, Ammonites and Arabs. Nehemiah is told that some years previously the Jewish community had attempted to rebuild the wall, but the enemy nations had gotten an edict from the Persian king, forcing them to stop. If they were to attempt to fortify the city and rebuild the walls now without the permission of King Artaxerxes, it would be seen as an act of rebellion. They are hoping their brother Nehemiah can help them with all these issues.

Nehemiah’s brothers leave after four months even though their petition has not yet reached the king. The Lord begins speaking to Nehemiah’s heart. He knows that if he speaks about anything to the king without his permission, he could lose his life. In time, Artaxerxes asks him why he appears so sad, and he explains the entire story. The king grants permission for Nehemiah to go and rebuild the city walls and gates.

It takes Nehemiah several months to arrive in Jerusalem, but first, he stops in Samaria to present the king’s decree, along with his commission to Governor Sanballat, a Samaritan, Tobiah the Ammonite and Geshem, the Arab leader.

In Jerusalem, Rebbe Ezra, the retired governor, instructs Nehemiah not to listen to these Gentile leaders. He tells him to ignore these men and do what God has called him to do. Nehemiah knows that it is God’s will for the city to be rebuilt, and desires to bring glory to Him through this project.

Many exciting plot twists, intrigues and events happen in the rest of this story. Sanballat and Tobiah are Nehemiah’s constant enemies, doing whatever they can to hinder God’s work. Yet, God is in control and causes the people to unite to finish the walls and improve conditions in the city.

Other characters and side stories are introduced. In the end, all turns out for the best and God is glorified through the work of Nehemiah and other godly leaders. There is much spiritual growth. Nehemiah’s dedicated group of workers finish the wall in two months, and they all have a dedication ceremony. Nehemiah encourages all the people to dedicate their entire lives to God and obey His commands. This is the path to true happiness.

Even though On This Foundation is over four hundred pages, it did not take me long to finish it. It is compelling, exciting and very uplifting. I felt strengthened by the Lord after reading it. There is a beautiful bible verse that expresses the theme of this story, “So this is what the Sovereign Lord says: See, I lay in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a precious cornerstone for a sure foundation; the one who trusts will never be dismayed,” Isaiah 28:16. Nehemiah and all the people learn that the Lord is our Cornerstone and we must all build everything we do on Him. I know you will love this story as I did. It is best for readers eighteen and above.

Patsy Ledbetter says she has many titles, but her favorite is being mom to her six children. Her two daughters, two sons and one son-in-law and one-daughter-in-law are her joy. A teacher with forty years experience Patsy has taught children of all ages and also special needs children and adults. She writes occasionally for a local newspaper and performs in church theater productions on a regular basis. She and her husband have been married for more than 35 years. She says, “It is my desire to bring honor and glory to my Lord Jesus in every area where He has allowed me to minister.”

Cottage by the Sea, written by Robin Jones Gunn and published by Howard Books (2012), is a spiritually insightful look into the care of ailing parents. It is very helpful for someone who is or will be in that season of life. The theme of Cottage by the Sea is based on a verse from Isaiah 45:3,” I will give you the treasures of darkness, riches in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel who calls you by name.” The story contains spiritual depth, humor, drama, joy and struggle.

The novel begins with Erin Bryce, who is married to Mike and has three grown sons, Jordon, Joel and Grant. She has just opened a small bridal business with her best friend, Sharlene.

On the first day of working from home with Sharlene on the new business, The Happiest Day, Erin receives a call from her father’s new wife, Delores, that her father has recently had a stroke. Erin is filled with worry, and is struggling with her dislike of Delores, which began when her father married her.

With encouragement from Sharlene and her husband Mike, she travels to the small coastal Oregon town where Jack and Delores now live. This is the first time Erin has been with her father in eighteen months. When she was growing up, her father was the teacher and coach with whom she never felt fully approved. Her mother was more encouraging, and Erin adored her.

When Erin arrives, she is greeted by a cool but concerned Delores, who is not a friendly person by nature. Erin struggles with resentment toward Delores.

Over the course of several days, the doctor determines that her father is all right and that Erin is free to return home. Jack is very proud of the work he and Delores have done on the cottage by the sea. He introduces her to some of his friends during her visit.

Erin speaks to Delores in private, who informs her that if Jack’s health fails, she will not stay with him. This is a shock to Erin, but only seems to add to her dislike of Delores. Erin is also struggling with the fact that her younger brother, Tony, and her father are estranged and have been for many years.

Erin returns home, and life resumes its normal pace.  Her son Jordan becomes engaged to a delightful young lady named Sierra. Since Erin is in the wedding planning business, she and Sharlene are able to help the young couple. Erin’s father and brother are invited to the wedding, but neither one shows up for the big day.

The day after the wedding, Erin learns that her father has had another stroke, paralyzing half of his body. She speaks to Delores on the phone who insists her father did not want to spoil the wedding by revealing this information. She and Mike decide to drive to from their home in California to Oregon.

When they arrive, they find a distant Delores and an emotional Jack. Erin and Mike help care for him for a week and consider moving him down south with them. Jack can’t speak, but has other ways of communicating with Erin that begin to assure her of his love and acceptance.

After about a week, Mike and Erin discover that Delores has left. They are upset, but not surprised. They communicate this to her father, who is sad, but seems to understand. His daytime caregiver, Marge is very helpful.

Mike needs to return home, but Erin stays with her father. Even though she has been doing some of the work for her business via her computer, she knows that her absence is putting a huge strain on her friend Sharlene. Sharlene suggests that she should buy Erin’s half of the business. Erin agrees, even though it is an added heartbreak.

The Lord is speaking to Erin about many things during this time, one being her resentment towards Delores. She knows that in order to be at peace with the Lord, she is compelled to forgive Delores. Erin is finding treasures in the darkness and riches in secret places as she experiences these trials with the Lord by her side. She knows she can trust him and feels that she is doing His will by staying with her father during his last days.

Several other plot twists occur, but in the end, all is happy and well. The Lord rewards Erin for her faithfulness to Him and to her father.

I think that readers eighteen and above will enjoy this story, and particularly, those who are caregivers. I found it encouraging and helpful. The Lord will help us to do His will, no matter how challenging that may be.

A Lady like Sarah, written by Margaret Brownley, and published by Thomas Nelson (2009), will keep you reading till the last page. Filled with suspense and action, it will entertain you. You will also see how amazing God’s grace is. He will save everyone who comes to Him in humility, regardless of their background or past mistakes.

The story begins with Reverend Justin Wells on his way from Boston to Texas with his mule and his horse. He was forced to leave his pastorate in Boston when a woman accused him of impropriety, all because he rejected her. He did nothing wrong, but the congregation believed her false story, and he was sent to pastor a church in Rocky Creek, Texas.

On his way there, Justin finds two people passed out on a trail in Missouri. He also finds a horse. The man’s name is Marshal Owen, who has a bullet stuck in his shoulder, and the woman is Sarah Prescott, who is being escorted to Texas to hang for murder. Justin tries to remove Marshall Owen’s bullet, but Sarah insists she can do a better job. She removes the bullet, but after a day, he still dies. Sarah has never killed anyone, but she did go along with her brothers, George, Jed, and Robert when they robbed stages. She decides she will run and escape from Justin as soon as she gets a chance.

It doesn’t take Sarah long to escape, but the next day, Justin finds her stuck in a muddy pit from which she can’t escape on her own. He rescues her and puts handcuffs on her. Sarah tells him her story. As children, she and her brothers lost their parents and have been on the run ever since. She never actually robbed any stages, but went along with her brothers, knowing they were her only family. None of them ever killed anyone, but they were falsely accused, and there is a warrant for their arrest.

In a few days of traveling together, Sarah and Justin become very drawn to one another. He tells her the story of Jesus dying for her sins, and she feels completely unworthy. Soon they come upon a small wagon train that has been attacked by an Indian who lays dead close by. The only living person is a very young mother who is dying. She insists that after she is gone, Justin should baptize her two-month-old baby, Elizabeth. Justin prays for the young mother, and when she dies, he enlists Sarah’s help with the baby.

There is no milk anywhere in sight, so they both pray for some provision. Sarah is out washing clothes and finds a goat. She sees this as a miracle from God to keep Elizabeth alive. She is beginning to believe He answers prayer. She still insists she will not stay and go back to Texas with Justin.

Sarah, Justin and Elizabeth all become very close and Sarah’s attitude is beginning to change. Justin realizes he has feelings for Sarah and prays for her diligently.

The story continues and many exciting adventures ensue. You find yourself wondering what will happen and how it will all work out. Everything ends happily, and you feel blessed and relieved that God will help anyone who calls upon Him, regardless of a spurious past.

I really enjoyed the adventure of this story. I fell in love with all the characters.  I think you will enjoy it as much as I did. This story is recommended for readers 18 and above.

I like TV and films. I really do. I’ve even been known to binge on certain series. But after indulging for a while, I get restless. I need meatier-stuff. TV and film become too passive an experience for me. I need to engage my imagination. I need books.

Maybe that’s what is happening at your house. You and the kids need an adventure. Well, we can suggest some.

So why not send them to Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe? or have them choose their own sea adventure: Journey under the Sea? or visit a small town in the woods of the Sierra Nevada: The City Bear’s Adventures? or solve mysteries with Libby and her friends in Edinburgh, Scotland: I Get a Clue and We All Get a Clue ? or go to London on a the London Art Chase or go to Hollywood with Hello, Stars.

We have other suggestions. Check out and scroll through Book Lists on the menu at the top of this page. Titles are linked to the reviews.

And while you are at it, maybe you would like to go someplace too–this is, after the kids are in bed. Take a look at the list for College Age/Working Person. Ah, England! Ah, the American West! Ah, Hawaii! Happy Travels!

Elisabeth Elliot: Joyful Surrender (Christian Heroes: Then and Now) is a biography in the series Christian Heroes: Then and Now. The series is written especially for young people. Janet and Geoff Benge authored this biography on Elliot. It was published by YWAM (2010). I’m making a particular point of this because there is an autobiography by Elliot with the similar title, Joyful Surrender. It was written for adults and not for children.

The Benges’ biography of Elisabeth Elliot is an important read for young people. It shows how following God may not take us in a straight line; doubts and setbacks are inevitable. Yet God still loves us and helps us walk through shadows and difficulties and on to see the fulfillment of his plans for us. Elisabeth Elliot is a close up and personal look at a life-long journey of faith.

The writing level of this biography is suitable for middle school and high school students. That said, it is important for adults to caution would-be readers of the facts before giving them the book.

From the news, previous generations knew the story of Jim Elliot’s martyrdom, but today people have not heard that Elisabeth’s husband was speared to death while attempting to bring the gospel to an unreached Ecuadorian tribe. The book also contains descriptions of the death of a woman in childbirth, the murder of a language informant, and the painful illness of Betty’s second husband. These descriptions may upset and frighten some younger readers and not be suitable until they are older, and mentally prepared to process it.

This biography differs from Elisabeth’s famous book Through Gates of Splendor. Instead of telling us about Jim, it outlines Betty’s faith journey. We learn about her family life and how meeting many missionaries in her home influenced her choice of career.

It was her plan to become a translator for people who did not have the Bible in their own language and so she studied linguistics in college. She met Jim Elliot and felt drawn to him, but both were planning to remain single and they were interested in different countries.

Betty taught for a while after completing her training. Then God brought people and events into her life that led her to accept a missionary assignment in Ecuador, where Jim was serving, but at a different location. Betty worked hard and faced many heartbreaking setbacks. Sometime later, Jim and Betty married and began serving together.

After Jim was killed, Betty sought out the same tribe whom he had tried to reach. Slowly, members of the tribe began to open their hearts to Jesus. She wrote many stories about the work Jim, herself, and others were doing in Ecuador, giving readers a window into the adventure and challenges of such a calling.

Betty’s writing and speaking brought her back to the United States, where she inspired many people to serve as missionaries and to support missions. During this time her own life had many ups and downs, but her spirit remained strong and surrendered to God.

Elisabeth Elliot: Joyful Surrender (Christian Heroes: Then and Now) is available at Christian bookstores, on Christianbook.com, Amazon, and Barnes & Noble. In paperback, it is approximately 230 pages long.

Donna Fujimoto’s children love to read. She is a graduate of Alliance Theological Seminary. Her collection of short stories, 9 Slightly Strange Stories with an Uplifting Edge  is available as an e-book at Amazon.  

 

On a Summer Tide (Three Sisters Island Book #1), by Suzanne Woods Fisher and published by Revell (2019) will make you smile. It is full of fun, humor, sorrow at times and much spiritual growth in lives of the main characters.

The story starts when Paul Grayson, a widower in his late 50’s, announces to his three adult daughters that he has just bought an island off the coast of Maine. The island has gone bankrupt! He remembers the camp on the island where he and his late wife met and fell in love. They had always promised each other they would go back there someday. Now she is gone, and Paul is invigorated thinking about getting the camp up and running again. The name of the island is Three Sisters Island, and the name of the camp is Camp Kicking Moose!

His daughters are all distraught, wondering why he has sold their childhood home to buy something dilapidated and in need of so much time and effort. Paul sees it differently. He views this purchase as a new beginning, hoping that he can do good for this island and its residents.

His wife had been a strong Christian, serving the Lord in many ways. She died trying to rescue an elderly neighbor in a house fire. The neighbor’s granddaughter, Libby, also died in the fire. Libby was survived by a young son, Cooper. Paul’s oldest daughter, Camden, became Cooper’s guardian.

Camden is a career woman. She has had to learn to be a mother to Cooper, who struggles with a degree of autism. Madison, Paul’s second daughter, is studying to be a therapist. She is engaged to a young man named Tre, whom the family is not fond of. Blaine, the youngest daughter, has been attending college. Yet she is still unsure what path she wants to follow.

Soon, Paul is on his way to the island where he meets some very colorful characters. Peg Legg is friendly to all. She runs the diner and general store on the Three Sisters Island. Captain Ed runs the Never Late Ferry, between Mount Desert and Three Sisters Island. Seth Walker, in his late twenties, is a free spirit, the schoolteacher and leader of worship at the only church in town. Baxtor Phinney, is the self-appointed mayor, and his sons, Peter and Porter, are lazy and annoying.

As the story unfolds, Camden, Madison and Blaine come to the island to help their father fix up Camp Kicking Moose. These young women are not following the Lord, but as time progresses, they seek Him more. They become closer, more understanding and sympathetic with one another. On the island they all also end up finding friends and a purpose. They are surprised by the joy they find in helping others and they grow to appreciate the beauty the island has to offer.

The characters grow, develop a stronger bond with each other and seek more meaning in their lives through their relationship with the Lord. Paul feels blessed to see his family united in a way that is fresh and new. Some funny events, mystery and romance are thrown in to complete the story.

I really enjoyed On a Summer Tide. The characters came to life, and I was sad to leave them when the book ended. The author did an excellent job. This book is best suited to readers age 18 and above.

The book, Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy, by Eric Metaxas and published by Thomas Nelson (Repeat edition, 2011) is a deep, riveting analysis of the life of Dietrich Bonhoeffer. It is very extensive, containing over 500 pages of interesting information about Dietrich, a man who submitted to nothing and no one except God and his Word.

As Adolph Hitler and the Nazis fooled a nation and attempted to exterminate the Jews of Europe, a small number of scholars attempted to destroy the Third Reich from the inside. Bonhoeffer was one of these. It is convicting to read of his bravery in the face of evil.

In 1898, Dietrich’s parents, Karl and Paula Bonhoeffer were married, and within a decade, brought eight children into the world. All of the children were born in Breslau, Germany, where Karl held the chair in psychiatry and neurology at the university. He was also the director at the hospital for nervous diseases. Their large house at 7 Birkenwaldchen was near the clinic.

On February 4, 1906, the Bonhoeffer’s youngest son Dietrich was born just before his twin sister, Sabine. Their mother, Paula taught the children herself until they were eight, then she sent them to public schools where they excelled. Although their father, Karl, was not a Christian he allowed their mother to teach them the Bible and hymns. In this strong and loving family, the children were taught to live by biblical principles and to think for themselves.

Dietrich’s father was appointed to the chair of psychiatry and neurology in Berlin in 1912. He retained this position until his death in 1948. Even though his wife Paula was a Christian and they had an excellent marriage, Karl was wary of anything beyond what one might observe with his senses. He could be termed an agnostic. However, he never stood in the way of his wife instructing the children in the Bible and prayer.

The Bonhoeffers were a very musical family. They would conduct musical evenings every Saturday night. Dietrich’s sister Sabine wrote, “Usually the boys began with a trio. Karl-Friedrich played the piano, Walter the violin and Klaus the cello. Then Dietrich accompanied my mother as she sang. The big sisters sang duets, as well as Lieder by Shubert, Brahms, and Beethoven.”

In August 1914, Britain declared war on Germany. The two oldest sons, Karl-Friedrich and Walter were called to war. In April of 1917, Walter died. This was a spiritual turning point for Dietrich. He began to think more seriously about God and his faith. In 1918, Germany lost the war. The monarch, Kaiser Wilhelm, admitted defeat.

In 1920, when Dietrich was 14, he determined he wanted to become a theologian. From this point on, he focused on his education, attending schools and seminaries. At the age of 18, He began speaking to others. He traveled throughout Europe and America. Here is a quote from the book that shares the beginning of the change in Germany,

“On January 30, 1933 at noon, Adolph Hitler became the democratically elected chancellor of Germany. The land of Goethe, Schiller and Bach would now be led by someone who consorted with crazies and criminals, who was often seen carrying a dog whip in public. The Third Reich had begun.”

Many issues and problems arose, but Dietrich went against Hitler, and fought for God’s truth to prevail. He preached sermons, wrote books and instructed others in the Lord. The last book he wrote was called Discipleship, known generally in English as The Cost of Discipleship, is certainly worth reading.  Dietrich Bonhoeffer died in a German prison at the age of 45.

Here is one of his quotes that has inspired me:

“If we want to be Christians, we must have some share in Christ’s large-heartedness by acting with responsibility and in freedom when the hour of danger comes, and by showing a real sympathy that springs, not from fear, but from the liberating and redeeming love of Christ for all who suffer. Mere waiting and looking on is not Christian behavior. The Christian is called to sympathy and action, not in the first place by his own sufferings, but by the sufferings of his brethren, for whose sake Christ suffered.”

Archbishop Charles Chaput states, “Metaxas has created a biography of uncommon power–intelligent, moving, well researched, vividly written and rich in implication for our own lives.”

I know that your will find this story as life-changing as I did.
