The Best Kind of Gift by Kathi Appelt51fyIAocoVL__SX370_BO1,204,203,200_

A new parson has come to the Dogwood All-Faiths Tabernacle, and the congregation is so pleased that they decide to have a “pounding”-“-everyone takes a pound o’ this and a pound o’ that to help make Brother Harper feel at home.” Jory Timmons wants to bring a present, but he’s too little to make a pie, milk a cow, gather eggs, or contribute any of the gifts others are bringing. Like Cynthia Rylant’s When I Was Young in the Mountains (Dutton, 1982) and Libba Moore Gray’s My Mama Had a Dancing Heart (Orchard, 1996), this title captures the warmth of an Appalachian community, and Johnson’s convivial paintings make both the setting and the characters shine. What could have been an often-told story of the search for the perfect present is instead a welcome slice of life.

Fearless Flyer: Ruth Law and Her Flying Machine by Heather Lang91xt9rgyXIL

On November 19, 1916, at 8:25 a.m., Ruth Law took off on a flight that aviation experts thought was doomed. She set off to fly nonstop from Chicago to New York City. Sitting at the controls of her small bi-plane, exposed to the elements, Law battled fierce winds and numbing cold. When her engine ran out of fuel, she glided for two miles and landed at Hornell, New York. Even though she fell short of her goal, she had broken the existing cross-country distance record. And with her plane refueled, she got back in the air and headed for New York City where crowds waited to greet her. In this well-researched, action-packed picture book, Heather Lang and Raúl Colón recreate a thrilling moment in aviation history. Includes an afterword with archival photographs.

Go to Work and Take your Faith too! By Ross West21Y50P42CXL

It has a powerful role in transforming the marketplace itself.

Wild in the Hollow: On Chasing Desire and Finding the Way Home – Amber Haines is a woman haunted by God. Like Eve in the Garden, she craved the fruit that she thought would lead her to freedom. But the whispers of temptation led her instead down a devastating path toward isolation, dissatisfaction, and life-altering choices. In her most broken moment, Amber met God waiting for her in the fallout, freely offering her grace and life.

This is a story of the God who makes himself known in broken places. In prose that is at once lyrical and utterly honest, a brave new voice takes readers on a windswept journey down the path of brokenness to healing, satisfaction, and true intimacy with God. Amber calls readers to dispense with the pretty bows we use to dress up our stories and instead trust God to take our untidy, unfinished lives and make them free, authentic, and whole. Anyone who struggles with doubt or holds secrets, anyone who feels marginalized or like she is missing something, will find in Amber a sister and an inviting voice back home, into the heart of God.

What’s the Deal with Teens and Time Management? by Leslie Josel – Time management is a challenge for everyone, but it is a particularly daunting challenge for middle and high school students. There is an expectation that at their age they should be independent and know how to get things done on their own. But teens are busier than ever. Between homework, school, afterschool activities, family, friends, jobs, and more, teens often find that their time is truly NOT their own. Add in the fact that they often lack the tools to manage their time; maybe it’s a little unrealistic for parents to expect their teenagers to instinctively know how to manage time. “What’s the Deal with Teens and Time Management” takes parents step-by-step through the basics of teaching their teens the time management skills they need to succeed—at school, at work and in life! This is a user-friendly guide full of best practice solutions for helping teens stay on top of their homework, avoid procrastination traps, get out the door in the morning with minimal conflict and manage the use of their electronics. In a readable, breezy and witty fashion, Josel opens the door to the world of time management, what it really means, why it’s important and why your teen probably doesn’t “get it.”teens

ImageChoosing Gratitude: Learning to Love the Life You Have

In his latest book, Choosing Gratitude: Learning to Love the Life You Have, renowned author James A. Autry reminds us that gratitude is a choice, a spiritual—not social—process. Made evident as behavior, gratitude is not the behavior itself. We may automatically respond, “Thank you” or “Appreciate it” in the daily course of our lives. These are polite, conditioned responses, but they are not gratitude. Instead, gratitude is a way of life, a belief system, that means cultivating a spirit of thankfulness even through the negatives of life. It is remembering there will always be more reasons for gratitude than for despair.
