HearthLand: At Christmastime (Episode 10)

Chautona Havig

Loved it! Great continuation of Ralph’s story. I love this series and am ready to buy a piece of land in Hearthland myself! But, since this is fiction and that’s not possible, I will be content to wait patiently for the next installment. Kudos, Chautona!

Ethel Korman

HearthLand is a serial novel released in several chapter episodes.

Taking a step back in time–deliberately.

After a trip to Walden Farm and an afternoon talking to Chad and Willow Tesdall, Ralph Myner caught a vision for what life could be like. Against the advice of his nephew, Ralph sinks his entire retirement account into an incredibly risky venture.

Harlan Walker thinks his uncle has gone crazy. With the project in motion, all he can do is try to find people to invest their time, money, and even their lives into Ralph’s project before the man ends up broke and without means to survive.

People come from all walks of life as they embrace a new world–the world of HearthLand.

Episode 10: For the first time since leaving California in May, Ralph is home and his fledgling little community has a temporary resident in his stead. The house walls are going up, but will they get a roof on before the snow flies?

An accident, some matchmaking, an indignant son, and an engaged couple may soon all have something in common: HearthLand.

Rachel's Story

Rachel’s Story

Sherry Chamblee

This story was a great quick read. It is written in that great way that draws in you at the beginning and by the end leaves you hoping there is a sequel soon! I would highly recommend it to all. Hope we see more of this story line. 🙂

Heather Smith

Two women, one-hundred years apart.

Sometimes the journey is as important as the destination.

Katie Brown enjoys Eldercare, but knows it’s a mistake to get involved when she could be transferred at any time. Still, with such an interesting patient as Granny, along with a loving church family nearby, this particular assignment has made it tough to stay indifferent.

Then one day she hears of a missing manuscript, written by Granny’s own mother decades ago. As an aspiring writer, Katie is fascinated, and sets out to find it.

In her search she may find more than just an old story. She may find some answers for herself, too.
………………………………………………………………….

The story behind the Story:
The author, Sherry Chamblee, is also the full-time caregiver for her husband’s grandmother. His great-grandmother (Granny’s mom – Rachel Clark Kennedy) was an aspiring author when she wasn’t being a nurse. Back in the early 1900s she wrote books – lots of them. She had at least one full-length novel, wrapped and sealed and sent to herself in the mail. Since the family saw it last, they’d lost track of it. The author got it into her head to look for this manuscript.

Back in February of this year (2014), we were looking for it (read ‘searching frantically through an old shed’) when we found a bin full of Granny’s mother’s things. In that bin was an old nurse’s registration certificate belonging to Rachel Clark – Granny’s mom. Paper-clipped to that certificate were several pages of typewriting paper – she’d written a short story, titled The Signal. Turns out it’s about 3000 words long, but complete. The only complete story of hers that has been found, so far.
The certificate is dated December 2, 1914. One hundred years ago. It’s safe to assume the story paper-clipped to it was written in the same year, or very close to it.

Her complete manuscript is included in ‘Rachel’s Story’, just as she had it 100 years ago, in chapter 5, as it’s being read to her own daughter.

This is a very short story at only a little over 8,000 words.
I have only edited the spelling in her part of this story, so as to keep her unique voice throughout. This is why readers may find a few grammatical errors in that chapter, and/or outdated words. This part was indeed written one hundred years ago, and is still an unpolished work, though still very enjoyable to read.
All proceeds from this book will go to help in the care of Rachel’s daughter, my husband’s grandmother.

Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas: Unabridged

Stories Behind the Best-Loved Songs of Christmas: Unabridged

Ace Collins

I really enjoyed this book. It was so interesting to hear the stories behind all the Christmas songs. The only reason I rated it a four is that not all the song lyrics are included. Even when it is a song I know by heart, I liked reading through the words, especially songs that have several verses that we don’t always sing. Very sweet, easy to read, and interesting.

R. C. Luther

Behind the Christmas songs we love to sing lie fascinating stories that will enrich your holiday celebration. Taking you inside the nativity of over thirty favorite songs and carols, Ace Collins introduces you to people you’ve never met, stories you’ve never heard, and meanings you’d never have imagined.

The next time you and your family sing “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen,” you’ll have a new understanding of its message and popular roots. You’ll discover how “Angels from the Realms of Glory,” with its sublime lyrics and profound theology, helped usher in a quiet revolution in worship. You’ll learn the strange history of the haunting and powerful “O Holy Night,” including the song’s surprising place in the history of modern communications. And you’ll step inside the life of Mark Lowry and find out how he came to pen the words to the contemporary classic “Mary, Did You Know?”

Still other songs such as “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” trace back to mysterious origins–to ninth-century monks, nameless clergy, and unknown commoners of ages past. Joining hands with such modern favorites as “White Christmas” and “The Christmas Song,” they are part of the legacy of inspiration, faith, tears, love, and spiritual joy that is Christmas.

From the rollicking appeal of “Jingle Bells” to the tranquil beauty of “Silent Night,” the great songs of Christmas contain messages of peace, hope, and truth. Each in its own way expresses a facet of God’s heart and celebrates the birth of his greatest gift to the world–Jesus, the most wonderful Christmas Song of all.

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear

Max Lucado

It was very inspiring. It helped calm a lot of fears I have in life.

ss1987

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?

Imagine your life, wholly untouched by angst. What if faith, not fear, was your default reaction to threats? If you could hover a fear magnet over your heart and extract every last shaving of dread, insecurity, or doubt, what would remain? Envision a day, just one day, where you could trust more and fear less.

Can you imagine your life without fear?

The Christmas Lamp: A Novella

The Christmas Lamp: A Novella

Lori Copeland

The Christmas Lamp was very touching. It is a story where the towns’ people come together to make Christmas tradition happen against all odds. It makes you stop and think of all your own traditions, memories, and family. It helps you to realize how tragedy can affect someone for a long time. Then they let go of the hurt and pain to live again.

Tammy

Nativity, Missouri, is in trouble.

When the small town is bypassed by the newly constructed highway, it loses its much-needed holiday traffic—threatening not only the town’s financial survival, but its very heart and soul.

Outside consultant Jake Brisco threatens everything the community loves about Christmas with his budget-slashing solutions. Nothing is sacred—not even the traditional town Christmas tree. Long-time resident Roni Elliot knows some sacrifices have to be made, but can’t let go of the customs and traditions that have marked her holidays since childhood. The decorations and customary activities have always generated vitality and joy throughout the whole season in Nativity.

Though their priorities and methods clash, Roni and Jake want the same thing—prosperity for the town. As the two get to know each other and become close, each begins to gain a new perspective on what the real wealth of Nativity—and the season—might be.

The Christmas Lamp takes an honest look into the issues and concerns we all face and sheds light on the real origins of Christmas spirit.

Maggie Magoo

By the time I joined the ranks of the United States Peace Corps in 2010, I was fifty-three years old and I needed a change. Not a small minor adjustment like a new hairstyle, or maybe learning a new hobby. What my life required at that point was an ‘Extreme Makeover Lifestyle’ kind of change. I was seeking an opportunity to change my daily existence, to stretch my mind to new levels, top open my heart to new people. I sought to widen the scope of my spirituality and to increase my understanding of myself. I craved thrilling and stimulating situations that would test my limits and expand my boundaries.
I had requested to work in the agricultural sector in sub-Saharan Africa. I ended up in Mongolia working in community youth development. My adventurer’s spirit told me the universe knows where I should be and what I should be doing. The twenty six months living in Mongolia were some of the most challenging, exasperating and meaningful in my life.

19 High-Impact Study Hacks: Learn the Techniques Top Students Use To Get Amazing Grades & Cut Study Time in Half

19 High-Impact Study Hacks: Learn the Techniques Top Students Use To Get Amazing Grades & Cut Study Time in Half

Richard Glenn

Absolutely fantastic book. I’d wish I had this when I was in school.

Perrin

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: You’re studying WRONG

In my years as a college instructor, there was one common theme in all of my classes: students didn’t know how to study! Most people were just winging it.

It wasn’t because they weren’t smart, talented people. They were. The problem was that in all of their years of school, no one had taken the time to teach them how to learn things efficiently.

I want to change that. Because here’s a secret…

If you study correctly, not only is it MUCH less work, but you’ll also get WAY better grades (and perhaps even have a bit of fun).

Take it from me…

I have two bachelor’s degrees and a master’s degree. While I was getting my master’s degree, I had three jobs. And let me tell you something: if you have three jobs while you’re getting a master’s degree, you are virtually forced to come up with some study hacks or you’ll go insane!

I was also a college instructor for many years, and during that time, I was working as a professional tutor. All told, I’ve coached hundreds and hundreds of students into better grades.

Now I want to teach you.

What will you learn?

Discover how to cut study time in HALF.

Who really likes to study? Not me! Luckily, you probably don’t have to be studying nearly as much as you probably are right now. Because here’s a secret: the top students don’t study as much. They just study more effectively.

Understand the MINDSET of an ultra-successful student.

There are tons of different study strategies out there. However…

Most of those strategies can’t be applied to everyone. Want to know why? Because studying isn’t about flash cards or formulas or any other “tip”.

Studying the right way is a whole different type of approach. It’s a WAY of learning, remembering, and interacting. Even more than that, studying the right way includes a lot more than just preparing for tests. There are social, biological and psychological elements to it.

To really study like an A+ student, you have to change the way you THINK about school.

Learn 19 study habits that will totally reshape how you think about school.

Here are just a few of the things you’ll learn.

How to write papers in half the time

Why you shouldn’t take notes in class

The best way to talk to your professors

What you should eat before a test

How thinking dirty thoughts can help you learn

Why everything you’ve been told about Wikipedia is wrong

When you should be reading (hint: it’s not after class)

How professors grade you

Why your body loves to learn when it’s tired

Exactly how many sources it takes to write a killer paper

And much, much more!

And guys… these only take FIVE minutes. What’s not to love?

Karen DeBeus

Simply Homeschool:2nd edition was not only refreshing and encouraging, but also so practical. Karen not only weaved Scripture throughout her book, yet it grabbed my attention that this book does not only apply to our family’s homeschool, but my every day life. Sadly as one who loves taking on more than I can ever handle, I have “cluttered” my life with so much busyness that I am missing a more balanced simplified life, which is “Simply Living…for Him”.

Amazon Customer

Are you feeling disheartened, discouraged, or lost on the homeschooling journey?
It doesn’t have to be so complicated…
I want to tell you to stop.
Slow down.
Stop chasing.
Stop striving.
Stop making it about the world.
Make it about Him.
This world and all it has passes away, but He is eternal.

Stop. Look in your child’s eyes. Focus on the relationship with the child. At that moment. These are the things that matter for eternity.

Let the extras go…if they are bogging you down, then they aren’t meant to be there. This journey isn’t going to last forever. In fact, each year it gets shorter and shorter…so do it well.

I always tell my kids to do all tasks well. Whatever lies before them, no matter how big or small, do it well. So, we as homeschool moms…are we doing it well? Are you stretched so thin we are giving a little in a lot of places? Or are we focused on what really matters?

Join me as we get back to the heart of our homeschools and simply…homeschool.

Going beyond the basic definitions of kairos and chronos, Sheets brings fresh insight to the subject, examining Scripture to show how kairos (strategic) times and chronos (general) times are not two separate and unrelated seasons in our lives but, rather, are often simply different phases of the same process. He discusses how God brought about His divine shift in the lives of men and women throughout the Bible and the many ways in which God used these seasons of change to deepen His people’s understanding of Him.

At the Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time

At the Still Point: A Literary Guide to Prayer in Ordinary Time

Sarah Arthur

This unusual devotional is a book after my own heart. Sarah Arthur has thematically arranged classic and contemporary fiction and poetry to look a little deeper at the worship inherent in the words.

Julie D.

“What a delight to find so extraordinary a collection meant for use in ordinary time! Any book that includes passages from The Wind in the Willows and Moby Dick, as well as poems by George Herbert and Christina Rossetti, is all right with me. Especially because each of the works chosen is meant to awaken me to the movement of the spirit in daily life.”

—Kathleen Norris, author of Dakota and Cloister Walk

With a title inspired by T. S. Eliot, this “literary” prayer book is for every Christian who has ever felt led to pray while reading a novel or a poem. These great writers know the things of God but speak in metaphor. They tell the truth, as Emily Dickinson put it, but they “tell it slant.” In not stating out loud what they know, they have left much to our imaginations—which is a way of saying they have trusted the Holy Spirit. Let those who have ears, hear.

“Sarah Arthur’s anthology of liturgically arranged devotional, literary readings is a creme-de-la-crème book. The passages lovingly collected and arranged are the best available. There is something here for every reader. This book is both a literary treasure store and a devotional feast.”

— Leland Ryken, professor of English, Wheaton College; author of Windows to the World: Literature in Christian Perspective and many other books

Sarah Arthur is a graduate of Wheaton College and Duke Divinity School. She is the author of several popular books including Walking with Frodo, Dating Mr. Darcy, and The God-Hungry Imagination. Sarah is married, the proud new mother of a baby boy, and a consultant for the C. S. Lewis Festival Board. She lives in Michigan.

Jamaican Me Crazy: A Christmas Escape (A Novel)

Jamaican Me Crazy: A Christmas Escape (A Novel)

Debbie DiGiovanni

the overriding key to JAMAICAN ME CRAZY is a humorous look at five women working through realistic problems; besides there is also Felix the wonderful cat.

Harriet Klausner

When putting together another “perfect” Christmas is just too much, the women of Lakeside Baptist Church rebel (as much as Baptists can) and buy six tickets to Jamaica. Trading their to-dos and grocery lists for sunscreen and flip-flops, the ladies think they’re going to have the time of their lives. Only their sunny holiday turns out to be more than they bargained for and they get cold reality, sans sugarplums, for Christmas.

A great escape for those snowy, gray December days, Jamaican Me Crazy is just what the doctor ordered. Christian women who dig friendship fiction like The Potluck Club will love this exciting tale of a Caribbean Christmas gone crazy.

What do you do when all you’ve thought important seems like a charade?

Meet Lainey Sparks, worship leader turned Christian recording artist. People look to her to lead them to God but she doesn’t know her motives anymore. Then she’s introduced to Nick DeAngelo, a man with a secret. Could he ruin her reputation and ultimately her career? Or is he the only one she knows to lean on when tragedy strikes?

The first book in the Faith & Fame series. Novella Length Christian Romances.

Lainey Sparks – Lead Singer of Christian Band, Depth
Stormy Towne – Heiress to the Towne Fortune
Caroline Winters – Food TV Celebrity Chef

Nick eyed Colin’s retreating form, afraid to look down at the desk. With a sigh, he pulled his chair back around from where it’d spun and sat down. Pulling the newspaper close, he opened it flat, reading the headline, Lainey Sparks LA Lovin’. Disgusted, he forced his eyes to focus on the pictures. A lot of leg showing in one, Lainey was seated in a limo with a man bending forward kissing her cheek. There were more photos of them holding hands, smiling, and a grainy photo of them seated eating dinner.

His heart tore. He wanted to gasp and shake his head violently, expelling the images. But he fought it as every nerve-ending in his flesh beat at his brain to move and react. He neatly folded the paper, opening the briefcase at his feet to shove it inside. All the world’s a stage and he was its number one sucker. This is what I get for falling in love with a star.

All three of Kelly’s books in this series are quality Christian (historial) fiction. In other words not your typical fluff. The Wortham family and their struggles becomes so endearing to the reader. These books certainly challenge me to greater faith in difficult times. I am eagerly looking forward to the fourth book.

Arlene Achord

Inspired by the biblical story of Abigail in 1 Samuel, a Christian woman stands up for what is right, despite life-threatening consequences.
When Faith married her husband Roger Nolan he seemed to be an upstanding businessman, owner of a remote mercantile outside the town of Bountiful, Oregon. But Faith quickly learned the truth-that her husband is dishonest in his business practices and likes his liquor, turning mean when he indulges. When Faith discovers that Roger has yet again failed to deliver critical winter supplies to Nathan Bartlett, owner of the nearby logging camp, she takes the order up the mountain herself. Furious, Roger confronts Faith when she returns, and she is knocked unconscious. When Faith wakes, she finds Roger dead in a pool of his own blood, and she soon stands accused of murder.
Having fought in the War Between the States, Nathan has seen enough violence to last a lifetime. He has always admired Faith’s quiet strength and integrity and finds it hard to believe such a gentle woman capable of harming anyone. However, Nathan begins to struggle with his instinct to protect Faith when evidence mounts against her.
As more and more people begin to think Faith is guilty, only her trust in God can give her the hope she needs to survive this trial.
