on godly men + women

14 . August . 2011

my fav payton asked a great q:
missionary books for pre-teen boys.

so i sauntered downstairs to where
mom had set out a sweet stack
of books she read to scott + i when
we were young,

. george mueller by bailey
. billy sunday: baseball preacher by stocker
. fanny crosby by dengler
. amy carmichael by white
. looking for home by a. richardson
. facing the dawn: the paul rice story

a few to read-through and
see if they’re still appropriate/relevant:

. sugar creek gang + the lost campers by p hutchens
. the danny orlis books by b palmer
. captain dailey’s crew by c massey
. cathy and carl and the seahorse mystery by d grunbock johnson

‘new to me’ ones on her shelf
[aka post-’92;
i’m snagging–er, temporarily borrowing–
these as well]

. adventures in odyssey
. the hattie collection by m frost
. the clubhouse collection edited by r seldomridge

oh, that a tidbit from any
of these stories will
lodge in their minds
make them curious about the
Lord and his staggering mercy…

ps – thanks for the push on this, ms. p. xx

pps – other book rec’s, pretty please?

    Jandro read all the sugar creek gang and liked them. We do a series of missionary bios through Sonlight curriculum. Forget the title of the series right now. (not at home to check) but I’ll let you know.

    Some of those books have titles that I gave to your folks a couple of years ago. Hope you and your children like them.
