The Seasons on Henry's Farm: A Year of Food and Life on a Sustainable Farm

The Seasons on Henry’s Farm: A Year of Food and Life on a Sustainable Farm

Terra Brockman

Reading through the book gives such newfound appreciation for the Brockman family, Matt, and all the apprentices. To see their work and passion brought to life was truly an inspiration, and nearly enough to make me want to spend a summer on a farm.

April Friend

Henry’s Farm is in central Illinois, some of the richest farming land in the world. There, Henry Brockman and his family — five generations of farmers, including sister Terra — farm in a way that produces healthy, nutritious food without despoiling the land. Terra Brockman tells their story in the form of a yearlong diary/memoir — with recipes — that takes readers through each season of life on the farm. Studded with vignettes, photographs, family stories, and illustrations of the farm’s vivid plant life, the book is a one-of-a-kind treasure that will appeal to readers of Michael Pollan, E. B. White, Gretel Ehrlich, and Sandra Steingraber. The book opens a window into what sustainable farming really entails and why it is vital and relevant to everyone who eats. Though rooted in the rolling oak-hickory hills and fertile fields and flood plains of the Mackinaw River Valley, the book ranges widely, incorporating literary, scientific, and culinary reflections occasioned by the week-by-week events of farm life.

The Crucified Life: How To Live Out A Deeper Christian Experience

The Crucified Life: How To Live Out A Deeper Christian Experience

A. W. Tozer

This IS one of the BEST books, and may be THE BEST book I have ever read on the subject of “take up YOUR cross, deny yourself…” I have only read about half of it so far.

R. Lacy

“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me; and the life which now I live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

The apostle Paul declared in his letter to the Galatians that he had been “crucified with Christ.” But what does this mean? Is this a claim every believer can and should make? The Crucified Life is a comprehensive exploration of these questions, answered with the deep, biblical thinking for which Tozer was revered. “God is ingenious in developing crosses for His followers,” Tozer was fond of saying. At the heart of the book is a call to believers to follow Christ to the Cross and be raised to new life—a call to live and thrive in the crucified life.

Living “So That”: Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life (InScribed Collection)

Wendy Blight

Living so That, Making Faith-Filled Choices in the Midst of a Messy Life by Wendy Blight offers a book which shows its readers how to take what they learn in the Bible and apply it to everyday situations. She answers imperative questions such as “why does God allow trials?” with providing scriptural answers and experiences she has gone through.

Denise M. DiFalco

In today’s world, it’s tough to make everyday decisions, let alone decisions that honor God. Our culture is increasingly driven by selfish desires. However, as Christians, our lives should not be self-centered and static; they should be others-centered and active, making a difference for the Kingdom of God.

Living “So That” is a fresh approach to understanding God’s Word, focusing on many of the powerful “so that” verses in Scripture, including Jesus Came So That. . .; God Spoke So That. . .; Pray So That. . .; Trials Come So That. . . . Through her approachable style, personal examples, and biblical teaching, Wendy equips readers to take what they study in the Word of God and practically live it out in order to impact the world around them. The result is a renewed appreciation for the power and applicability of Scripture. Through practical examples and biblical truths, Wendy helps readers gain a new perspective on daily living, equipping them to apply these biblical truths to present-day decision-making.

Features include:

“Going Deeper” sections encourage readers to dig further into the truths presented

“Call to Action” sections challenge readers to take practical steps to apply what they have learned

Helpful tips and tools for practicing active faith

Mark Edmundson

This is an excellent book. Every teenager should read it prior to going to college. I absolutely highly recommend it!

Maria Jones

In this important book, acclaimed author Mark Edmundson reconceives the value and promise of reading. He enjoins educators to stop offering up literature as facile entertainment and instead teach students to read in a way that can change their lives for the better.

Deeply Loved: 40 Ways in 40 Days to Experience the Heart of Jesus

Keri Wyatt Kent

I love Keri Wyatt Kent’s writing style. She makes her books so accessible to “everyday, real people.” Like Keri I am a busy mom, juggling many responsibilities. And making time to connect spiritually is a challenge. This book is divided into 40 daily devotionals, each about 2 pages long. She introduces each topic with scripture, includes a story to illustrate, and ends with action steps (Presence Practice) to bring the point home.

Theresa

Jesus loves you.

That profound fact has been changing lives around the world for centuries. Yet, there are days when you don’t experience this completely in your own life. So, how do you get to the very core of that statement on a deep, personal level?

Keri Wyatt Kent wants to help you fully experience the heart of Jesus’ love in Deeply Loved. Using the gospel stories of Jesus, reflection, and personal stories, Kent will guide you through 40 days of how to create space in your life for Jesus to show up and love you. Deeply.

From the first page, this book had me smiling.

K. Grant

Tragedy strikes on the opening night of the Fall Crafters Fair when a woman is killed in the parking lot of Daisy’s Quilt Shop, and the only material witness is one of Melinda Byer’s boys. The investigation takes a more bizarre turn when detective Shane Black becomes convinced the killer was actually after Callie.
This time it’s a madman loose in the largest crowd of the year, and he’s looking for something or someone. If they can’t figure out what, one of Deborah and Callie’s close circle of friends may be next.
Masked identities, antique quilts with hidden messages, an Amish boy whose handicap makes him stronger, one brave dog, and a possible hidden treasure … this time it’s nonstop action, danger, and a dash of romance.

Beyond Hope’s Valley: A Big Sky Novel

Tricia Goyer

What I love about this book and all Tricia’s work is the spiritual thread wolven throughout every page. I love and read Christian fiction for this reason. Not only have I grown to love the characters from this series, but I have learned and grown spiritually from them. I would recommend anyone interested in this book read the two previous ones. This is a complex story of family, friends, sacrifice, finding God, and LOVE:-)

Heidi M. Hurtado

After an extended stay in Montana, where Amish traditions are different than in her home state, Marianna Sommer returns to Indiana for two reasons, first to help her brother and his girlfriend prepare for a baby and their wedding. Second, to plan her own wedding to Aaron Zook — a marriage she’s been dreaming about ever since childhood. And yet, although she had missed the idyllic farms and families of her upbringing, Marianna is surprised that Indiana is somehow making her long now for Montana.

As months pass, secrets that were hidden in winter’s frozen grasp thaw and take on a life of their own. The truths about a child, about a past relationship, and about God’s plans are being revealed. Walking through a valley of questions, Marianna must hold on to hope as she decides where and with whom her heart truly belongs.

Tricia has done it again. Another beautiful Amish novel. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
I recommend you read this book. If you have not read an Amish novel before this series would be an excellent place to start. I gladly give this book a rating of 5 out of 5.

Its Time to Read Mamaw

All she wanted was a simple Amish life . . . But now Marianna Sommer finds herself depending on Englisch neighbors. Although proud of living apart from the world, she and her newly relocated Amish family have discovered that life in the remote mountains of Montana requires working together.

As Marianna begins helping those different from herself—and receiving their help—her heart contemplates two directions. She’s torn between the Amish man from Indiana whom she has long planned on marrying and the friendly Englischer who models a closer walk with God than she’s ever seen before.

Who should have young Marianna’s heart? What is God asking her to sacrifice? Her traditions? Her community? The answer is found along the wooded paths.
