The Building on the Rock Series Review and Giveaway

I found a new books series that I had to share with you all.  The series is called The Building on the Rock series, by Joel R Beeke and Diana Kleyn. 


This series consists of five books, each having 30 or so devotional stories in them.  The books in the series are called:
The kids and I are currently working through How God Used a Thunderstorm and the stories are FANTABULOUS!!  Some of the stories are short (only a page long) and others are several pages long (being 3-5 pages).  I like how the stories are catergoriezed as long or short, this way I know which stories to pick from depending on the time I have available to read. 

So far, we have been reading at about 2 stories at a time, inaddition to our read a loud book, they are quite addicting to be honest!  The stories have really been a blessing to us, real life stories of how the Lord is working. 

One of my favorites, which is actually the first story in the book, was about a Christian slave that was sold to a new master.  This man was very mean, especially to the slave.  One afternoon the master insisted that Cuff, the slave, stop praying.  When the master had found out that Cuff continued in prayer, he beat him.  Instead of cursing the master, you know what he did?  He got on his knees and prayed for him, I am not sure that I could have done this.  That very night the master couldn't sleep because of the awful thing that he had done. 
He asked if anyone on the plantation could pray for him,  Guess who was brought to the master's bedside?  You guessed it, Cuff, the slave that he had beaten just hours before.  Through all of this, the Lord saved the master.  The master and Cuff spent much time studying the Word together and then traveled through out the South preaching the gospel.

That story and all the others in the Building on the Rock Series are based on true stories.  This is a wonderful collection to add to your family library.
