Summary

Keeping Blessing Hill is the story of how two very flawed people built a welcoming home out of a dilapidated barn, turned a wildly overgrown hill into a garden, and lived out a commitment to honor Christ in every aspect of their lives by opening their hearts to whatever God wanted to do. It turned out what God had in mind was “keeping”: keeping a house and garden, keeping an open door, keeping a strong marriage, and keeping devotion to those things that are eternal. Meditations about joy and glory and wonder mingle with practical household tips, recipes, and amusing stories about a family that knows how to keep life jolly as readers gain a fresh attentiveness to and perspective on God, nature, and relationships.

    My dear Beth, Though Uppsala, Iowa, takes its name from a city in my native Sweden, life here is different from what I have known. With my parents’ blessing, I have taken employment in the home of Mr. Bridger, a dairy farmer, caring for his ill mother and two young, orphaned nieces. It is most unlike me to leave home, even in a temporary manner. But the need is great and Hattie Bridger and the children are so endearing. As for Dirk Bridger, he is an unhappy man, but also loyal, hardworking, and honorable. And, I should add, quite handsome. My younger sisters were smitten the instant they saw him. Young flirts! And with beauty to match. I, on the other hand, am considered to have common sense to attend my common looks. But, friend Beth, I am afraid my heart betrays my wisdom—for I, too, long to be seen as beautiful. Not just by anyone. By Dirk Bridger. Your friend, Inga Linberg In rural Iowa, life is both the planter and uprooter of dreams. As love, long delayed, springs to life in the heart of a young Swedish immigrant, one man struggles with his withered ambitions—and new blessings that could take their place if he would but allow them room. Patterns of Love is Book Two in the Coming to America series about women who come to America to start new lives. Set in the late 1800s and early 1900s, these novels by best-selling author Robin Lee Hatcher craft intense chemistry and conflict between the characters, lit by a glowing faith and humanity that will win your heart.

    Ethics of the Sages - Pirke...

    The clear and compelling wisdom of the                 rabbinic sages can become a companion for your own                 spiritual journey.              
     At the heart of Judaism is an ethical                 imperative to live life from your true self, as the image and                 likeness of God. To do this, you must see the greatness of God                 manifest in all things, and therefore engage each moment with                 grace, humility, and justice. This imperative flowers in the                 words of the early Rabbis (250 BCE–250 CE), who captured                 God’s call to be holy in Pirke Avot, a collection of                 pithy sayings on how best to live an ethical life.  
     This engaging introduction to the wisdom                 sayings of the rabbinic sages puts you in direct conversation                 with them, allowing the sages to speak directly to you about                 what matters in life and how to live it with dignity. With                 fresh, contemporary translation and provocative commentary,                 Rabbi Rami Shapiro focuses on the central themes in this Jewish                 wisdom compendium—study, kindness, compassion. He                 clarifies the rabbinic proverbs and parables in order to expose                 the ethical principles at their root. By recalling the ancient                 voices of the rabbinic sages, he shows us the contemporary                 significance of their timeless wisdom and distills Pirke Avot                 not as a book about ethics but as a practical guide to living                 ethically today.              
     Now you can experience the wisdom of the                 early Rabbis even if you have no previous knowledge of Judaism                 or rabbinic literature. This SkyLight Illuminations edition                 presents the ethical teachings of the rabbinic sages, with                 insightful yet unobtrusive commentary that conveys Pirke                 Avot’s core challenge of God to the Jewish people, and                 through them all humanity: We are to be holy as God is holy. We                 are to be, in a human way, what God is in a divine way.
