You know, the ladies God would love for us to chat about since He divinely plopped them right there in His Word for us. Grab your popcorn, friend. It’s about to get real…
The final installment in the Plainly Maryland series!
When items go missing from the bakery where KatieAnn Mast whips up her special treats, evidence points to her as the thief. All will be forgiven if she confesses before her Persimmon Creek Amish community and promises to mend her ways. But KatieAnn is not guilty, and she refuses to kneel in confession to a crime she did not commit. Wouldn’t lying be as bad as stealing?
To avoid shunning, KatieAnn travels to the Southern Maryland Amish community where her older sister, Rebecca, lives with her husband and six children. As the holidays approach, KatieAnn is helping out at the family’s community store and developing a romance with Luke Troyer when items go missing from the store.
How will KatieAnn clear her name before she is branded a thief by yet another community? And will she be shunned before she can convince others of the truth?
Book 1, Rebekah’s Keepsakes
A sweet and gentle love blossoms between Rebekah Stoll and her childhood friend Joseph Graber, despite attempts by her saucy nemesis, Katie Knepp, to sway the young man’s affections her way.
When Joseph hints at the promise of forever, Rebekah is positive she should say yes to his proposal – until a mysterious English stranger shows up at her homestead and sets everything she thought she knew about her world on end.
When 12-year-old twins Penelope and Quintus Grey Reyes are sent to Mexico to spend the summer with their grandparents, Pen creates a website advertising their services as international agents of intrigue. A mysterious client hires them. The assignment? To locate the Codex Cardona – a rare 15th century painted book.
The twins discover Abuelito, their grandfather, once searched for the same book, but he gave up the search when a friend disappeared. The book is rumored to be cursed, but Pen knows curses don’t exist. Quin isn’t so sure, and when Abuelito is attacked at the museum where he works, both twins are certain it has something to do with the missing codex.
While Pen and Quin track down the mysterious book, greasy art professor Flores follows their every move, but someone else is watching them too – someone who doesn’t want the Codex Cardona to be found. The twins must draw on their combined skills of art and technology to uncover the mystery of the painted book.
The Rainbow with Dull Colors’ speaks to the ‘Archie’ in all of us. Despite his sad self-image (compared to what he sees in his peers) he stumbles on the path to finding real joy in the way God made him. JJ Johnston shares that map through this ‘colorful’ story of self discovery. And just like with Archie, the rainbow with dull colors, God, in His Mercy, wants to show us exactly how special we are, too. ~Foundation of Jesus The Divine Mercy
The Rainbow with Dull Colors by J.J. Johnston is a beautiful little book that teaches children the importance of having confidence in how valuable they are to God, no matter what they look like or whether they are different from other children. Archie, a self-conscious rainbow up in heaven, is sad because he has very dull colors. The others glow brightly and are sure they are better suited to God’s work. They pick on him and laugh at him. God takes Archie on a tour of the world and explains that He doesn’t always use flashy things to speak to people. After comforting Archie, he explains that Archie was made this way deliberately for a reason and then He gives him a special mission.
What a charming book! With lovely illustrations that capture every emotion the rainbows are feeling and that children can sympathize with, The Rainbow with Dull Colors stood out to me as an excellent children’s book. Without being heavy-handed, J.J. Johnston builds a solid explanation for how God cares for those who feel underrated, in friendly language kids can understand. The parallel between Archie being discounted by other rainbows up in heaven and his mission, a shy little girl who is being picked on at school on earth, teaches kids in a nutshell that God understands—He isn’t remote. He sees everything and He cares. The message that God wants us to be proud of our individuality, even if it seems we don’t have what someone else does, is a great focus for the story. Archie tries to be someone he isn’t, but only by doing what God has required of him does he find true happiness.~Sarah Scheele for Readers’ Favorite
