Welcome to the LeValley United Methodist Church Library!
 
The LeValley United Methodist Church has a very resourceful Christian library. The "Book & DVD" cart is located in the commons area before entering into the sanctuary. You are most encouraged to come and check-out the variety of books and other media materials that are here for your enjoyment and reading adventures!
 
The most valuable, favorite and best book of all time to read is the 'Good book' ~ The HOLY BIBLE.
 

LIBRARY NEWS   OCTOBER 2022

As we get a little more chill in the air and we have less sunlight, here are a few choice books to take a look at.

We have two choices with our authors sharing their life stories with us. Our first is The Upstairs Room by Johanna Reiss. She was an 8 year old Jewish girl living in Holland when the Germans invades in 1940. This book speaks to how she spent the next number of years in the upstairs bedroom of the Oosteveld family home. The family took her in. She wrote this recount when her own daughters reached the age this happened to her to try to explain what it was like. It is written for that younger audience as she shares the feelings, frustrations and daily life that they all experience together from a child’s point of view.

Our second life story is by Katharine Stewart who tells of her and her husband and child’s time on A Croft In the Hills which takes place in Scotland in the 1950’s. If you are unfamiliar with the Scottish term Croft it means small farm. Our author and family spend about 6-8 years working a subsistence croft in the Highlands not far from Lock Ness. It tells of the many joys and challenges of such a life. I find it totally enjoyable learning about the daily routines in such a life. Hope you will also. There are two other books donated to our library by this author.

Our final offering this month is Waking the Dead by John Eldridge. We have a number of his books by him and this as many of the others deal with heart issues. Heart issues such as: What condition is your heart in?—Who “owns” your heart?—and Biblically what is said about our hearts. Eldridge often uses myths/stories/movies— of the fight of good against evil as illustrations of his points so some spiritual warfare and prayers included in his books.

Happy reading,

Karen Wambaugh--Librarian
