So, long story short, secondary teachers in Pennsylvania are encouraged to develop classroom libraries that are filled with books that connect with course content and contain characters and/or events relevant to teens. With that in mind, I started researching books that would fit those requirements for my history/social studies classroom. Frankly, the search left me appalled at the content of books geared for pre-teens and teens!!!
With enough of such content in movies, music, TV, the internet, etc., I figured students today did not need more of it from a book in my classroom. So, I decided that I would write something that both dealt with an historical event and also contained characters teens could relate to...without all the negative content issues. If you are a parent or teacher looking for a great (historically-based) story, without a myriad of content issues, I invite you to check out this book.
WITH THE KIDS HOME FROM SCHOOL, TAKE THIS OPPORTUNITY TO BRING THE BIBLE TO LIFE THROUGH DEVOTIONS AND ACTIVITIES!
IN UNCERTAIN TIMES, FIND HOPE BY CLINGING TO GOD'S WORD. THERE IS NO GREATER BEACON NOR BRIGHTER LIGHT IN THIS OR ANY OTHER STORM.
JESUS NOT ONLY PROMISES LIFE. HE PROMISES A LIFE THAT IS FULL. THIS PROMISE HAS STAYED TRUE FOR 2000 YEARS. ARE YOU EXPERIENCING IT?
What reviewers are saying about Mark's books...
As a husband and a father of four kids, I appreciate the fact that this book challenges us to prioritize Christ and make Him the center of our home. I also appreciate the author's emphasis on discipleship and spiritual maturity. This is a great read and a helpful book for any parent to have in their library. ~ John Stange (Best-selling author)
Reading this book helps to inspire a very careful and loving raising of children. It is well researched and carefully presented. The author chooses his words wisely and encourages the verbalization of deep love for your children, and admonishes the reader to be very God-centered and purposeful as a parent. ~ Tami Christianson (Author of Junk in the Trunk)
