Faith in the City
By Jennifer Ruisch

This book is personal narrative of being a directionless college grad trying to make it in the big city. The story itself chronicles the author’s struggle to reenter the land of the living and figure out how she fit into the picture with people from every religion and background imaginable. A question that keeps popping up is, "Are all the small interactions and events in our lives arbitrary, or is it actually all a part of a divine plan?"

Readers who have ever moved to a big city, or just moved to a different city—in search of a job, a mate or an identity will strongly identify with this story. College students meeting people with all different philosophies and faiths will enjoy this book. Anyone who has faced spiritual doubts, depression, frustration and angst will want to read this book, all levels of spiritual maturity included.



This book was reviewed by Jeni Hagen, a 20 year-old college Junior.

Faith in the City was different than most books I read for fun.  It was a real life memoir and  gave you insight into experiences of a real person.  The book was interesting, funny, and easy to read.  I finished it very quickly. Above all, the book was thought provoking. I came away remembering that God has a plan for your life.  It may not be what you expected, but it may be what you knew all along. 

I highly recommend this book.

Being a Girl Who Serves

Living in a self-centered world, it’s easy for today’s teens to get the wrong idea of what life is really about. Being a Girl Who Serves, the second book in a series of three, prompts girls not to ask, "What about me?" but rather, "What about you?" The author urges girls to think beyond themselves and to focus instead on how they can use their gifts and resources to serve God and others. Being a Girl Who Serves shows girls that the best way to find yourself is by giving yourself away to Jesus.



This is a great series for girls and their moms.  The author is interesting and, though she asks important, thought-provoking questions, she does so in a non-threatening way.  Preteen girls will love this book and so will there moms!  While we will read this with our daughters hoping to teach them about service, we will glean some insight for ourselves!
