Book review: Your Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks: A Different Perspective

Your Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks: A Different Perspective Your Guide to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks: A Different Perspective
Whether your family is planning a trip to the impressive Yellowstone or Grand Teton National Parks or not, this spiral-bound travel guide will prove quite interesting!
I have never been to either of the parks featured in this Biblically-sound guide but I found it really interesting. This guide would be perfect to bring along on your travels! Most importantly, it's great how this book has a creation perspective. I know that visitors to areas such as Yellowstone are bombarded by evolutionary teaching. This book gives the real answers, making it ideal to study as you travel to your exciting destination! With this unusual travel guide, you can feel sure that your children are learning the truth as opposed to lies about the wondrous creation around them!

Great book: Chronicles of Dinosauria Woetzel & Dobbs

Chronicles of Dinosauria

Chronicles of Dinosauria by Dave Woetzel and Richard Dobbs
  It was wonderful to read through this book knowing I could trust the information as Biblically-sound. This is yet another book published by MasterBooks that my family and I love and learn from. 
I know parents are always looking for interesting and 'cool' books to present to their young children. However, so many books on dinosaurs are just filled with evolution! It's pretty crummy handing your 9-year old a book on amazing dinos with the warning that half the book is wrong! In wonderful contrast, Chronicles of Dinosauria has a Biblically-based sound view of these great beasts of the past (and perhaps not-so-recent past too!) and provides believable illustrations and descriptions of these creatures. 

   I originally got this book in the hopes that it would make a great gift for my younger siblings, specifically my brothers. I only had to read one chapter however, before I was totally intrigued in this unusual book! With colorful illustrations and attention-grabbing text, it is almost impossible to get bored looking at this book! The facts are also complimented by many photographs. This book is a fantastic one for any science/Creation enthusiast of any age! Of course it would make the perfect gift for your son, but I can definitely vouch that girls will love it as well! And adults. I speak from experience.

More about the book....
Every legend is said to include some grain of truth, and for years co-author Dave Woetzel has sought to separate fact from fiction as he explores mysteries related to dinosaurs, mankind's history, and the biblical time-line. Teaming with artist and designer Richard Dobbs, the two have created a visual archive of expeditions and intriguing clues to explore, all of which highlight the connection to the authority and reliability of Scripture. 

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my review!

Lovely book I am Ruth a story of Loss, Love, & Redemption by Kenneth Berg and Brenda Duff

I am Ruth : A Story of Loss, Love, and Redemption
 by Kenneth Berg and Brenda Duff

I am Ruth brings to life the beautiful Biblical story of Ruth with artistic and vivid authentic photographs.
Let the scriptural account, the breathtaking photos, and the deeper insights help you look afresh at this enduring true story of love from tragic loss.
There really isn't much else to say about this book, except: get it! I think this photographic style of book is wonderful for children, who are usually very visual. I try to steer clear of ''googly-eyed'' Bible character books, but this book is honoring to God in that it is beautiful, artistic and authentic as well as Biblically-sound and containing the entire story of Ruth!
  • View the vivid, full-color images from within Israel and near the historic locale of Ruth’s life.
  • Survey the social and cultural details that come alive to enhance your understanding of this profound story of loss, faith, loyalty, and love.
  • Better understand the important biblical and genealogical connections.
One of the most beloved and enduring accounts of the Bible, Ruth’s story is one of tragedy. Here is the true account of a young widow who chooses to leave the land of her birth for the unknown lands of her mother-in-law, Naomi, who is returning home bitter and angry at God for the loss of her husband and two sons.
More than just a simple love story, I Am Ruth is about courageously facing life after loss, rediscovering faith, and fearlessly placing yourself and your future in God’s loving hands. This text brings to light the full humanity found in the biblical account, and makes it personal for every reader who has suffered in life’s shadows longing to see God’s plan.
