Check out in the library this week…
The Outcast by Jolina Petersheim. Raised in an Old Order Mennonite community, Rachel Stoltzfus is a strong-willed single woman, content living apart from mainstream society until whispers stir the moment her belly swells with new life. Refusing to repent and name the partner in her sin, Rachel feels the wrath of the religious sect as she is shunned by those she loves most. She is eventually coerced into leaving by her brother-in-law, the bishop.
I Am Not But I Know I Am: Welcome to the Story o God by Louie Giglio. In this super-sized era where bigger is better and fast is too slow, it’s time to become small and let God be great! Redefining success, Giglio shows you how to obtain the astonishing freedom and incredible rest that come from believing, like John the Baptist and Moses, that you must decrease while Jesus increases.
Plugged in Parenting by Bob Waliszewski. Written for parents of children ages two through teens, it helps parents who want to teach their kids media discernment without alienating them. Cyberbullying, sexting, violent and sexualized content on TV, the Internet, and in music are prevalent today and readily available to kids. How can a parent protect their child? This book shows how to use teachable moments, research and pop culture evidence, Scripture, questions, parental example, and a written family entertainment constitution to uphold biblical standards without damaging the parent-child relationship.
