  3. As posted on Youtube:

    My family and I have all enjoyed these books tremendously. I am grateful that my young boys (11-5) can be reminded of the hope we can have in the midst of the darkness of this world. They they can be reminded to be strong, courageous, and giving of themselves as they seek to live for the mending. These books have been great conversation starters and examples of Biblical truths that we desperately need.

  10. The Green Ember series is amazing! We have read it several times and have recommended to it to many friends who also love it!
