Grace and Truth Books!



Hey Neighbors!

I received two books from Grace and Truth Books.  They are called Grace Raymond and First Impressions of God.  Now, I will tell you up front, I love old Christian books, and these are reprints from the late 1800's.  My favorite type!  We actually have a collection of old tract society books and other Christian books from that time period.  These two books are from the Girl's Heritage Collection.

This set includes all the following books:
* The Little Girl's Treasury
* I Have a Soul
* The Dairyman's Daughter
* Behind Mr. Bunyan
* Patty's Curiosity
* The Young Cottager
* Grace Raymond
* First Impressions of God
This set is available now for $39.




Grace Raymond or The Evil and Cure of a Passionate Temper is about a little girl and how she learns to deal with her temper. The book was written for the American Sunday School Union by a deaf and dumb lady.  Yes, that is what it says!  This is a paperback book that is 62 pages long. I really enjoy books like this that deal with sin and call it such.  So many books today dance around calling sin wrong and they are often written for mere entertainment.  This is a book that will remain in our library.  The book gives a clear gospel message and teaches a child how to deal with their temper.


The second book, First Impressions of God is written by Ann Wells.  This book is a little longer, 102 pages,  and is the story of Emily Tappan.  I believe this will become a favorite in our home.  My daughter has read it and we are going to read it together as a family.  In this story, Emily, a young girl learns that she does not know God, neither does her family.  She meets a young friend who teaches her about God and she struggles with coming to know Him.  Another great gospel message.

Both of these books use phrases that you might need to explain to your child.  We have read books like these since our children were very little, so it was not difficult for them to understand.  I do realize though that it might be best to read together with younger children so you can explain some of the words.  Here is an example of some words you might have to explain: gambols, shades of evening, deportment, or vexation.  We love the old sound ing words and phrases!

Grace and Truth Books has many other books I personally would like to read.  I highly recommend both of the above books to my neighbors here At the Fence.  You will be pleased by the character building lessons that are taught in these books.  And while you are there, be sure to browse their Scratch and Dent section.  The main focus is character building books for children, but they have theology books and books for adults also.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point. Unfortunately, there is a lot to do before you can get on the plane, with finding accommodations and a job being the most important.

Research The Country You need to do lots of research before you move abroad, especially if you haven’t visited the count
