Voices of the Faithful: Inspiring Stories of Courage from Christians Serving Around the World

Voices of the Faithful – Book 2: Inspiring Stories of Courage from Christians Serving Around the World


The One Year Chronological Bible : I received a Daily Bible as a Christmas gift my junior year in high school. By Christmas time Senior year, I had read through the Bible for the first time and had fallen in love with the Scriptures. I’ve continued to use this for many years. I highly recommend the Daily Bible for providing motivation and structure to your daily readings.

Daily Light on the Daily Path : This well loved book is a compilation of just scripture, divided into daily portions for both morning and evening. We use this at the breakfast and dinner table and it works well for families with even very small children.

One of the greatest ways to grow in Christ is to follow those who follow Christ. {Is that a tongue twister?} Like Paul exhorted Timothy to be an example, the lives of these people are worthy of imitation… in faith, in love, in sacrifice, in courage, in purpose, and in passion. Many of these are suitable to read together as a family.
