However, I recently had the delight to read a piece of fictional material, that captivated me! It is titled, "The Sparrow Found A House." I had a difficult time stopping my reading pace, for I desired to devour this book! It had me weeping, rejoicing, contemplating--all in a God-fearing manner.
Jason McIntire. He writes from a novel perspective...Pun intended. :) His premise is to glorify Christ, showing the blessings of a walk with Him, promoting God-fearing homeschooling in a favorable light, all the while being "real." This book never made me think, "That wouldn't happen in 'real' life."
Not often have I heard of fictional books that are favorable to the God-fearing, homeschooling, families of the world. This book is not just entertaining, but an exhortation to all Christians. I will admit, this book was the first fictional one that caused me to seriously contemplate the way I live my life for Christ.
This book is written for those of the "teen-age" years, yet, I was completely absorbed in it! (And, no, I will not be sharing my age with you. :D) I do believe that this novel will be a blessing to readers of any age.
The characters in this book resonated with me: whether I could identify with qualities in them (past or present), or whether I could see what needed worked on in me. They had very real-to-life issues, for every age or walk of life. It was interesting to watch how each person in this book reacted/responded to each situation presented unto them.
I highly recommend this book to families with children. Of course, parents, you will want to read it first. However, I do believe that you will have no problem allowing your children to read it. In fact, you may want to create a story night, (if you do not already have one), to read it to them!
Personally, I plan on getting printed copies for certain folks in my life. I have a whole host of people that come to mind, that I believe would be blessed by it. Maybe you do, too...After you read it. :)
