Children of Angels

Here's a fun book for your kids this summer, Children of Angels. Children of Angels

Children of Angels

Life isn’t easy for seventh-grader Jeremy Lapoint. Dad’s in prison and Mom can barely afford garage-sale clothes. Everything changes when Jeremy discovers that he can fly, pass through walls, and see angels and demons. He is chased by a demon through school hallways, but his guardian angel, Asiel, fights it off. The angel explains that Jeremy is a Nephilim—a human-angel hybrid—but Asiel doesn’t know exactly how that happened. Jeremy then discovers other Nephilim teens.

The Nephilim teens later find a report that details the source of their unusual genetics. They are about to take the report as evidence, but a gorilla-sized demon and his soldiers challenge them. When Asiel announces that the Lord of Hosts has deemed Jeremy a Battle Leader of Angels, the boy is not happy. Can heaven really expect a thirteen-year-old loser to turn into a mighty warrior?

May -- a time to change children's lives

May is Foster Care Awareness month—an initiative to help solve the increasing problem of children trapped in the foster system. About half a million kids remain in foster care in the USA. (100, 000 are waiting and hoping to be adopted.) Many age out of the system without a connecting family—no one to call family, and nowhere to go for the holidays.

So, what can one do to make May matter for the children? Here are some steps to take on behalf of the foster children. 

Read the full article -- and see a cool, inspiring video and also a slideshow -- here in The Examiner.  

And, for a larger sense of how to solve the orphan and foster care crisis, read my article in Assist News Service here.

A Walk Across the Sun -- a novel on child slavery

I'm deeply burdened for the millions of child slaves in the world. I'm especially disturbed to know there are child slaves right under our noses living here in the United States of America. A Walk Across the Sun is a novel about such horrors and is definitely not a book for the faint-at-heart.

For a full review of A Walk Across the Sun by Corban Addison, check out my article in The Christian Perspectives Examiner.

And let me say this before closing: If you, like me, are a Christ-follower, we don't have an option in this issue. It should be our burden. It must be our burden. Jesus has mandated us to be the salt of the earth, to reflect His light as the light of the world,
and to make the difference for the helpless. More on that later.

Be sure to stop by again soon.
