Where I Belong
Miu is only six years old when she is taken from her family and sold into slavery. Abraham (from the Bible) buys her, and she becomes a slave to Sarah and Hagar. Throughout the years that Miu spends in Abraham's camp, she slowly learns the difference between her Egyptian gods and Abraham's God. At first she can't understand why a loving God would let bad things happen to her and the people around her, but she gradually begins to discover the joy of giving your life to God. This book provides a unique way of looking at the story of Abraham, Sarah, and Hagar and is also a sweet story about a young girl coming to know God. By Rebecca Kenney, 106 pgs, pb. ~Rachel
We personally own a lot of these books. Many of them are among our children's all-time favorites. That's saying a lot, since my children are voracious readers. There's such variety in this line - they run the gamut from biography to fantasy, but consistently enrich. It is indisputable that every book you read becomes a little part of you. Knowing this, we want to be careful not to fill our children's heads and hearts with objectionable, disturbing or useless material. Many of our customers are Christian homeschoolers, as we are. Even among this group, parents differ in the degree of restriction or criteria they apply in selecting materials they consider appropriate for their children, depending upon their particular convictions in this area. However, we feel confident that even the most convicted parent would have no qualms about this thoroughly Christian series. While books in the Light Line have a "strong Christian message," they are not "preachy." Rather, they skillfully entertain while presenting that message, with vivid characters and strong, exciting story lines. The biographies are among the best my children have read - they have been particularly stirred by With Daring Faith, the story of missionary Amy Carmichael. Series are listed first in each section, followed by single books listed alphabetically.
