Marki considered these ideas as she reviewed the events of the last two days. Her parents had died in the drought. She had been thrown down a well by an angry mob. Buyu birds, great hairless cats and a black shining serpent had all attacked her and her companions. And things were only going to get more dangerous as the Ancients gathered to save Cadeven from the tyranny of the Realm.
With a deep breath, Marki pulled on her Mantle, accepting the Circle of Law—and her role as the Governor of Death.
This is a re-working of a previously published short book called The Parable Project. It contains about thirty spiritual thoughts taken from everyday items and incidents.
God is talking to us every day through the things around us. From nature to housekeeping, from traffic to sports–there are lessons in these things that He wants us to learn about life. With short, humorous, and very down-to-earth stories, this book simultaneously challenges and uplifts any soul seeking to be a better person and a better disciple of Jesus Christ.
Great for devotionals or daily meditations.
“I like that it is entertaining and accessible to both kids and adults (good for story time).”–a reader on Twitter
