Sister Moon of the Philippines: Amidst a Culture of Terrible Abuse and Poverty, an Astonishing Filipino Girl Rises Up

Victoria Mulato

This book is gritty, honest and personal. It is sometimes crushing but also heartwarming. The author has brought forth the minutest of details from her early life, bringing us face to face with daily life in poverty in the Philippines, the suffering but also the rich nuances of a complex culture. It is brave and inspiring.

Marie Judson

Xulli entered the world in a way no child should ever have to; into a family and Filipino culture of poverty, neglect, and terrible abuse. Astonishing and unforgettable, this is a captivating story about the effects of abuse on the mind of a child, the heart wrenching struggles of an impoverished family, and how a young girl strives and dreams for something better.

Born in the Philippines in the 1960s, Xulli is the first child of many. By the time she is four, she is taking care of three other siblings with both her mother and father working. In the beginning things were difficult but not desperate. But then life turns exceedingly ugly when her father begins binging on gin, spending nearly every penny he earns on his addiction and leaving his family on the brink of starvation on a daily basis.

The alcohol makes her abusive father mean. And very violent. At first, his anger is mostly directed at her mother, but after a particularly nasty beating, she flees for her life, leaving the children with him. Her father then turns his attention to Xulli and her siblings. Cruelly, he tries to teach the youngest ones that they don’t need their mother or milk by putting hot peppers on the nipples of their bottles.

With her mother missing, Xulli must find a way to protect her siblings from their father and provide for their needs. Eventually her mother returns and the abusive cycle continues. Plagued by death, loss, and periods of starvation, Xulli struggles to provide for her siblings, when she is just a child herself.

Even through many horrible experiences and extraordinary challenges, her spirit shines, never giving up hope. Demonstrating an extraordinary resiliency to survive against all odds, Xulli inspires us as she finds the courage to succeed in her own life.

A note from the author:

“I have written this book to raise awareness of the wide spread domestic violence and
child abuse that is so prevalent in the Filipino culture. All too often children in the Philippines are robbed of their basic human rights to an education because they have to become parents to their siblings or have been sold for money.

Through my writing and work, it is my passionate goal to help stop domestic violence and child abuse by educating the very young as well as adults about the effects of physical, emotional, and mental abuse, and show those in need how and where to seek help.”

Inspired to Pray: The Art of Seeking God

Inspired to Pray: The Art of Seeking God

Phil Pringle

Every page inspires you to pray. I often read a section as part of my daily God time, it transforms your thinking about prayer out the ordinary in the extraordinary, out of the mundane into intimacy, and out of doubt into faith. What more could you ask for from a book on prayer. Written by the author of “experience”, He really lives the life of prayer.

Stephen A. Hickson

In this powerful and motivating book, international pastor Phil Pringle invites readers to activate their spiritual lives by understanding prayer as a journey to the highest places of God. He sees prayer as an “art,” a craft to be developed and nurtured. Prayer is much more than muttering religious words. It is a connection with the God of heaven Himself. Too often believers fail to bridge the gap between earth and heaven, but active prayer releases the spirit into communion with God in another world: His world. As readers grow, they will draw close to a loving God who desires relationship with all who are made in His image. When we pray in close contact with God, we see greater results on earth and in our lives. Pringle appeals to the imagination and the soul, and all who engage with these visionary teachings will discover a new dimension to the act and the art of prayer.

Slaying Your Giants: How to Have Massive Faith

Slaying Your Giants: How to Have Massive Faith

Adam Houge

Another beautiful work by pastor houge. It deeply moved me as I realized the mistakes I was making in my faith. True faith he teaches isn’t trusting that God will do something, but believing He will when the Holy Spirit has spoken it. If God hasn’t confirmed it then why should I believed it? God’s word is all that matters.

meg

Whether you’re going through a hard time and need faith to overcome, or if you just want to know how to take your faith to the next level –no matter what, this book is for you.

Slaying Your Giants is a book that will change your life. It will teach you everything you need to know to have that mountain moving, giant tackling faith that God has always wanted from you.

But prepare yourself for a total life makeover. Because radical faith creates radical changes.

Her strange affliction has attracted some unwanted attention: from the press, from the authorities . . . and from the killer himself. Now, living alone with her young daughter and aging mother, Elin is being stalked—by a man she’s only met in her nightmares.

The police are dubious of her story, but one off-duty FBI agent agrees to help her: Agent Marc Everton.

Now, in a remote cottage on Hope Island, Elin and Marc must probe the secrets buried in her borrowed heart. And there’s no time to waste. One man is desperate to silence her—before she remembers too much.

Becky Melby

What a thoroughly delightful series! I loved the small town setting, and the varying ages of the characters add an unexpected charm. The writing is exquisite with just the right amount of romance, drama, and a healthy dose of humor. Eileen Key, Becky Melby, Rachael Phillips, and Cynthia Ruchti perfectly captured the charm of small town America.
