Gift Guide Post #4
just have to tell you before I start this review, that this is
seriously one of my all time favorite websites to order books from.
About 14 years ago I discovered a Christian writer from the late 1800's
early 1900's. She was a pastor's wife, and used incidences that she had
experienced and seen as a basis for her stories. She wrote for the
young as well as older child, and her adult books were GREAT! Needless
to say, I started finding her books on Ebay and began bidding on them.
There was one person I was often in fierce competition with. I found
out that her family was a part of Keepers of the Faith,
and I have been hooked since. This company is so very careful about
the books they choose to re-print. And I have to say, I have yet to
find new books for children that can compete or even come close to the
quality of Keepers of the Faith! I do have to mention the author I was
discussing above is Isabella Alden, who wrote under the pen name of
Contenders for the Faith and a Keepers at Home club
originally for their own children. This club is along the lines of
scouting type clubs. It is Christian based, and the way the program is
set up, it can be used by a church, a youth group, homeschooling group,
or even a homeschooling family. It teaches Biblical and practical
skills your child can use throughout their lifetime.
Keepers of the Faith have
the Contenders and Keepers clubs, but they also reprint old Christian
books. They have very strict guidelines on what they will publish.
They also have curriculum, crafts, toys and games, and occasionally they
have contests and prizes on their site. One of my daughters entered
their summer writing contest and came in second for her age group. I
would love for each of my readers to go to this page
that describes how they choose books to print. The high standards are
why I can recommend their books to everyone. Over the years as parents
have asked my opinion on where they can get good, quality Christian
books, I have pointed them to Keepers of the Faith. Be sure to bookmark
their page, because if you are as impressed as I was you will keep
going back again and again.
Are you looking for a good
spiritual gift that will encourage your children in the Lord? Make sure
you visit Keepers of the Faith. When you search for books, you can
search by age group, or by author.
Remember they carry books by Pansy and these are super. They also have
books on missionaries and preachers. I forgot to mention that they do
carry some CDs and DVDs.
We also have the Pilgrim's Progress on CD that they offer and my children have listened to it over and over again. My husband uses the Martyr's Mirror
book ($44.95) often for devotions. This is not a book for the weak.
It is also a very large book that will require plenty of time for
reading! I have never been disappointed in Keepers of the Faith!
Keeper's is offering the winner of this giveaway a $25 GC. What a
great way to purchase some quality gifts! If you are looking for
recommendations for a certain age, let me know and I will help.
