This book will change how you see the world.

The question of how to introduce youth to missions is sometimes difficult, how much information is to much? Will they understand or will they be frightened about what kids their age and younger are facing around the world? Beth Guckenberger has introduced two amazing books to help teach kids about what is going on in the world and how God is watching out for each of us, no matter how hard the situation no one has been forgotten and God is there to defend each of us in all of our stories.

Tales of the Defended Ones has followed up Tales of the Not Forgotten splendidly, do not take the warning on the cover lightly, although this book is aimed at youth I recommend it for all to read because these stories will change the way that you see the world and may even influence you to take a stand. Each chapter is well written sharing the stories of others and also has notes about the culture and facts about the situation from adoption to foster care to slavery.

The stories in this book will make you think and will introduce youth to what God can do in someones life, Guckenberger introduces things such as slavery, and abandonment in a way that will not scare kids but educate them.

In Tales of the Defended Ones we see four different stories where each person was watched over and protected no matter how difficult things had become. I highly recommend this book to everyone, especially to those looking to teach their children about missions and the problems that others are facing.


I received this book complimentary through the Litfuse Publicity Program in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
