Three New Books of Christian Fiction From Revell

by Susan Roberts


Even though Revell is a new publisher for me, it's been publishing books for over 100 years. Based in Ada, Michigan, their goal is to bring the Christian faith to everyday lives.  I have read many of their new books and find them very comforting without being preached to.  Here are reviews for three of their books publishing between August and October 2022.

3 Inspirational, Informative, and Instructional Books for Homesteaders

by Donna Huber


Homesteading is a movement focused on self-reliance and often uses environmentally sustainable methods. While homesteading may bring forth thoughts of the 1800s when homesteaders went west, modern-day homesteaders don't necessarily live on large farms - there are urban homesteaders in apartments, suburbanite homesteaders on an acre or less (and some deal with HOAs), and there are the rural homesteaders on small hobby farms. It's really about doing something at "home in"stead" of at the store, restaurant, etc. I belong to a ladies homesteading group and my homesteading efforts are more focused on cooking and home improvement projects. 

If you are homesteading or interested in this movement, I have three book recommendations that will inspire and instruct.
