LeValley Library
Librarian: Karen Wambaugh
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   

We have some wonderful selections this month!  Our first non-fiction book is Under Cover by John Bevere. He also wrote Bait of Satan which many of us read for Jen's book club.  I read it years ago, but still learned a lot from revisiting it.  The  author takes us through the scriptures showing us the reader over and over how coming under God's authority and delegated authority of the church, government and other civil authorities keeps us in the secret place under the shadow of the Almighty.  Our obedience and submission to all those in authority grows our faith and keeps us under God's protection.  Well worth reading.

She Said Yes: The Unlikely Martyrdom of Cassie Bernall is another selection this month.  This is the story of Cassie Bernall one of the Columbine High School students killed in 1999. She herself was once a rage-filled teenager who walked a path similar to that of her killers, but Cassie found a way out through her faith and her family's love.  She chose to embrace life with courage and conviction.  Eye opening to many things facing our students and how powerfully God works in one life at a time. 

Our non-fiction selection is The Hideaway the first novel by Lauren K. Denton.  It is a fast read story of a young woman who returns to her hometown of Sweet Bay, Alabama, after her Grandmother's death.  She deals with the old bed and breakfast house that needs renovations which her Grandmother left her and uncovers much about who her Grandmother was.

Hope you enjoy a good book this month one of the above or one from the books found on our library shelves or the book cart.

 

Blessings,
