I am sure many of you will remember how much I like books by Isabella Alden, who wrote under the pen name Pansy. You can find her books re-printed, at the Keepers of the Faith website. Here is some information on Isabella Alden from their site:

Isabella Macdonald Alden lived from 1841 to 1930. Her pen name was Pansy. She wrote or edited more than two hundred published works. Isabella Alden was known for developing characters who possessed an unwavering commitment to follow Jesus Christ. Her motivation for writing was to give a clear understanding of salvation and what it means to be a committed Christian. So often in her books, she presents the characteristics of a professing Christian in contrast to a possessing Christian. Each book has a particular biblical point she is trying to share with her readers.
Pansy wrote books for a variety of ages. We have used many of her books for our family reading time. Each of her books will encourage your child to grow in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Most of the Golden Text Series are books designed for the younger children, up to age 12 or 13. Although, I must say even the older children have enjoyed these books. Hedge Fence is one of our favorites as each chapter deals with Frank Hudson. His mother owns a boarding house and a guest there overs to send him a "hedge fence" each month. The fence comes in the form of Bible verses to help keep him out of trouble. It is interesting to see how each verse fits into his life and the choices he makes after reading them. Each chapter of the book starts out with a Bible verse.

I highly recommend these books. All of my children have been raised reading them and each one has their own favorites. I shared some of my older Pansy books in pictures a short time ago, and of course my children have also collected several of them. The easiest way to get them though, is to visit the Keeper's of the Faith website and order them there. Be sure to register for their newsletter as they often run specials or have contests your children can enter.

They also have Keepers Clubs which are clubs that can be done as an activity at churches, homeschool groups or in your own homeschool. We purchased the books for our sons and daughters and they have worked through different sections. You can learn more about these clubs HERE.
One neighbor will receive two books from their Golden Text Series from Keepers of the Faith. Be sure to enter right away and then go share this with others.
See you At the Fence soon!
