At a White House dinner in 1962 honoring the Nobel Prize winners of the Western Hemisphere, President John Kennedy greeted them by saying: “I want to tell you how welcome you are to the White House. I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone.”
The laureates might have been a trifle nonplussed to hear themselves collectively compared to one man, but Thomas Jefferson left his imprint on his state of Virginia; his young country, the United States; France where he served as ambassador; and the world, where his opposition to tyranny and his advocacy of freedom have inspired generations to believe that the pursuit of happiness, as he wrote in his Declaration of Independence, is an unalienable right.

✓ The Son of Virginia
✓ Jefferson the Patriot
✓ Jefferson in Paris
✓ Jefferson the Politician

✓ Jefferson at Home

Between Kennedy’s description of the third president of the United States and Jefferson’s own rendition of his accomplishments resides the enigma of an American philosopher who ardently believed in freedom yet owned slaves; a patriot who served his country with his talents and energies, but who was embroiled in the political machinations which rose to the surface as soon as the first president was in office; a human being who doubted the intellectual equality of African-Americans yet was engaged in a 38-year affair with a much younger female slave, with whom he fathered six children; a brilliant innovator who lived his life in debt; a man accustomed to the finer things that life could offer who espoused the simple, agrarian model for the new country he helped to found. Jefferson, the Founding Father, remains an unsolved mystery to the subsequent

Should I take that new job? How can I be a better parent? Who should I marry? How can I make ends meet? We all face challenging questions that keep us up at night, and we don’t know who to turn to for answers, or even if there’s anyone at all who can help. It turns out there is–the very God who created you.

Everyone needs God’s wisdom to navigate the complexities of life and manage responsibilities, difficulties, and relationships.

In this book, Daniel Henderson shares a Gospel-centered approach to living wisely in a broken world. He gives you practical steps for praying to receive answers in the midst of our confusion and uncertainty as well as questions for group discussion. There is no question you can ask that God can’t answer. He’s just waiting for you to ask.

Includes practical prayer guide and questions for group discussion.

Nothing in Abigail MacLeod’s life as a wife, a mother, and a teacher has prepared her for what she will experience during her summer in Israel.

But by the end of the first day, she is forced to board an Israeli jetliner in spit of a bomb threat, and watches helplessly as a kind, fatherly gentleman she befriended on the plane dies in her arms.

This is a summer Abby will spend learning about archaeology, delving into the past. And it’s a summer that will change her life in ways she never imagined.

Head in the Clouds

Karen Witemeyer

Adelaide Proctor is a young woman with her head in the clouds, longing for a real-life storybook hero to claim as her own. But when a husband-hunting debacle leaves her humiliated, she interviews for a staid governess position on a central Texas sheep ranch and vows to leave her romantic yearnings behind.

When Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to make a name for himself in America’s wool industry, he never expected to become a father overnight. And five-year-old Isabella hasn’t uttered a word since she lost her mother. The unconventionality of the new governess concerns Gideon–and intrigues him at the same time. But he can’t afford distractions. He has a ranch to run, a shearing to oversee, and a suspicious fence-cutting to investigate.

When Isabella’s uncle comes to claim the child–and her inheritance–Gideon and Adelaide must work together to protect Isabella from the man’s evil schemes. And soon neither can deny their growing attraction. But after so many heartbreaks, will Adelaide be willing to get her head out of the clouds and put her heart on the line?
