We women tend to have lots of “Martha time” as we scurry about being housewives and mothers. The unmarried among us are equally busy as school teachers, caregivers, or earning a living in other ways.
Yet what good is all our “Martha time” unless we have our “Mary times” too? We need to pause at the feet of Jesus to receive refreshment like the morning dew.
Here’s a book for our “Mary times.” The stories portray women serving in their God-given roles. The main points of the inspirational parts are drawn from the writings and sermons of men.
In a courageous change of direction, Paul Stutzman, known for his hiking and adventure books, gives us a different kind of adventure story—a deeply personal account of two loves in his life. This may be the book he “always intended to write” but never quite got around to doing it. Now, events have transpired that pushed him to publish these reflections on life and the urgent advice, Don’t wait too long… Are you postponing a dream? Waiting until “someday”? Looking for that “perfect moment” and the “right timing”? Paul invites you into his private life and thoughts and encourages you not to wait too long.
Paul Stutzman’s hiking shoes have slogged through Maine’s mud, filled with Mississippi River water, traversed Spain’s plains, and now tread, in awe, some of the same hillsides, shores, and streets where Jesus’ sandals trod.
On a hike through Israel, Paul and his friend Craig visit places that were prominent in the life and ministry of Jesus. Paul is seeking two things: to better know the human Jesus and to find the answer to a question that has puzzled him for years—What does it mean to follow Jesus?
This journey changes Paul’s understanding of many of the stories in the Gospels. He writes his account in hopes that you, too, will find a closer relationship with Jesus of Nazareth as you go with him and Craig to Nazareth, Capernaum, the far country, the gates of hell, the manger in Bethlehem, the Garden Tomb, and the city of Jerusalem.
Throughout the Bible, God warns man about the sin of impurity—sexual relations outside the bounds of marriage. Secular and Biblical history testifies that impurity is throughout history—no one has gone unscarred by it.
Keep Yourself Pure is a concise guide to understanding the Biblical view of what our contemporary society calls free love. Charles Hostetter presents thought-provoking chapters like “The Bible Speaks on Purity,” “Who Is Impure?” and “Are You in Love?”
This is an excellent book for couples faced with the question, Should we or shouldn’t we? Keep Yourself Pure is a guide to a happy, spiritual courtship and marriage.
In response to the hundreds of readers who have asked why Keepers at Home magazine doesn’t publish more than 4 issues a year, we developed the Keeper’sBook™ Series.
Packed with over 40 articles from 36 Keepers at Home readers and writers, Birth & Babies gives readers 64 pages of encouragement, how-to, stories and information—all about birth and babies! Birth & Babies feels, looks, and reads like Keepers at Home magazine, but it’s a book.
How we care for our elderly and special needs children among us is an indication of our love for Jesus Christ. (“As ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren ye have done it unto me.”)
The goal in Caregivers is to help us know how to think about our responsibility to the elderly and special children, and to give us lots of how-to and inspiration to do a good job-heartily as unto the Lord.
Caregivers is written by 39 writers who have walked the talk. Be strengthened as you listen to their experiences.
Packed with stories and information on infertility, miscarriages, stillbirths, adoption, foster care, Keeper’sBook™ Infertility will minister to those who struggle with these life-changing problems.
Infertility is written by 35 writers whose paths are marked by the pain and loneliness of this journey. They know the struggles, the emotions, and the trauma of this path and pray that their work in Infertility will lend new courage to others.
