Cover Art

What if you could actually love the life you are living right now?

In life, there is the ideal: fulfilling work, thriving relationships, financial security. Not to mention an orderly and beautiful home and children who never misbehave. And then there’s reality: frustrations, illness, feeling overwhelmed and inadequate. We can wait around for our circumstances to change and in the process miss the goodness right in front of us. Or we can choose to love our actual lives, right here and now.

In this entertaining and insightful book, Alexandra Kuykendall chronicles her nine-month experiment to rekindle her love of her ordinary, actual life. After wiping her calendar as clean as a mother of four can, Kuykendall focuses on one aspect of her life each month, searching for ways to more fully enjoy her current season. By intentionally adding one thing each month that will make her jump for joy, she provides a practical challenge you can easily replicate in your life. With humour, poignancy, and plenty of personal stories, she shows how a few small changes can make this crazy-busy life one of holy contentment.

In 1938 Annelies Magen, 18 years old and from a Jewish family in Dresden, was accused of being a spy by the German authorities. Her parents sent her to England to escape the threat of a ‘labour camp’, hoping to join her later. She would never see them again.

In this combined family history and memoir, Annelies’ son David Godwin, former chaplain of Gloucestershire Royal Hospital, traces the fate of the Magen family in wartime Germany, and reflects on his own life as a Christian with Jewish roots.

The Armstrong Girl: A Child for Sale: The Battle Against the Victorian Sex Trade Р£6.99 (RRP £9.99)

Book of the Week Comments Off on The Armstrong Girl: A Child for Sale: The Battle Against the Victorian Sex Trade Р£6.99 (RRP £9.99)

In November 1885 Victorian England was scandalised by a court case which lifted the veil on prostitution and the sex trade. In the Old Bailey dock was the editor of the Pall Mall Gazette, which had recently published a series of articles on the sex trade; a reformed brothel keeper; and the second-in-command of The Salvation Army, Bramwell Booth.
The group was accused of abducting a 13 year old girl, Eliza Armstrong. The group had set up the scheme to expose the trade in young girls. The resulting scandal triggered a massive petition and the raising of the Age of Consent from 13 to 16. Many MPs and other men in positions of power were furious, and the campaigners were indicted under the 1861 Abduction Act.
Booth would be acquitted, but others went to prison, martyrs for justice. The Armstrong Girl is the story of that scandal, and of the Christians who fought for this essential change in the law.
