Mag and Margaret: A Story for Girls by Pansy

mag_margaret_1203

Summary:?Little Mag Jessup is an orphan girl who works hard as a servant in Mrs. Perkins’ boarding house to earn her keep. She has no education, except what she has picked up on her own. Her future looks unchanging until she is given, on a whim, a devotional book called “Little Pillows,” in which she learns that she is valuable to God as His child. She endures trials from many fronts and the prejudice of haughty, rich Margaret, with whom she has more in common than she thinks, on her journey with God. (Introduction by TriciaG for Librivox)

Amy Carmichael

Amy Carmichael (December 16, 1867-January 18 1951) was a Protestant Christian missionary in India who opened an orphanage and founded a mission in Donavhur. She served in India for 55 years without furlough and wrote many books about missionary work there. The fellowship she founded would become a sanctuary for over one thousand children who would otherwise have faced a bleak future as temple children.

Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss

Spring Carl Larsson

Summary: “How dreadfully old I am getting! Sixteen!” Thus begins the lifelong diary of young Katherine as she pours out her hopes, dreams, and spiritual journey on the pages of her dear, old journal. Whimsical and charming Katherine is engagingly candid about her character flaws and her desire to know God. As you listen to her share her heart through these journal entries, you will be amazed and delighted by the depth of her character and the womanly wisdom and godliness she develops over the years. From the agonies of being a teenager to the delicate balancing act between being a wife/mother/daughter/neighbor, it is easy to relate to Katherine’s triumphs and trials whether you are 16 or 60. Listen to her unforgettable story set in the early 1800’s as you are encouraged to “step heavenward,” and don’t be surprised if you find yourself recommending it to all of your friends and family!(Introduction by Theresa Downey for Librivox)

Thoughts for Young Men by J. C. Ryle, read by author Douglas Bond

Summary: Every thoughtful young man must read J. C. Ryle. For those who don’t have the time or would rather listen, Douglas Bond presents this new audio book. As a young man, Ryle was a first-class athlete, rowing on the crew and playing cricket at Oxford, and a diligent student, graduating top of his class. After hearing Ephesians 2 read in church, Ryle was converted to Christ and thereafter earnestly pursued an uncompromising life of faith and ministry. Throughout his long life, Ryle became a leader in the evangelical movement, proclaiming faithfully the biblical and reformed gospel of grace. During his preaching and pastoral ministry, Ryle became a lover of the Puritans and, like his heroes, wrote prolifically (Summary by Douglas Bond).

Here’s how Ryle begins:

“When the Apostle Paul wrote his Epistle to Titus about his responsibility as a minister, he mentioned young men as a group requiring particular attention. After speaking of older men and older women, and young women, he adds this advice, “Encourage the young men to be self-controlled” (Titus 2:6). I am going to follow the Apostle’s advice. I propose to offer a few words of friendly exhortation to young men.

I am growing old myself, but there are few things that I can remember so well as were the days of my youth. I have a most distinct recollection of the joys and the sorrows, the hopes and the fears, the temptations and the difficulties, the mistaken judgments and the misplaced affections, the errors and the aspirations, which surround and accompany a young man’s life. If I can only say something to keep some young man walking in the right way, and preserve him from faults and sins, which may hurt his prospects both for time and eternity, I shall be very thankful. There are four things which I propose to do:
I. I will mention some general REASONS why young men need exhorting.
II. I will note some special DANGERS which young men need to be warned about.
III. I will give some general COUNSEL which I beg young men to receive.
IV. I will set down some special RULES OF CONDUCT which I strongly advise young men to follow. On each of these four points I have something to say, and I pray to God that what I say may do good to some soul.”
