Great Waters Press — A Cry from Egpyt and Children in Church

Great Waters Press, which published the practical guide to Raising Real Men by Hal and Melanie Young, has two new books coming out.  Schoolhouse Crew Members were given an opportunity to review either a physical or PDF copy of Children in Church: Nurturing Hearts of Worship, or A Cry From Egypt.

Curt and Sandra Lovelace

Children in Church: Nurturing Hearts of Worship was written by Curt and Sandra Lovelace – international speakers, writers, and missionaries to the Czech Republic with Lifework Forum.  The Lovelaces homeschooled their own children, who are now grown, and served on staff at L’Abri in Switzerland. They’ve served as missionaries in the Cayman Islands, worked in a small rural church in Maine, and led homeschool conferences in Bosnia.  They have been married for 43 years.  Their current mission, through Lifework Forum, is to provide support for homeschoolers internationally, missionaries, expats, and nationals.  They currently live in Prague and minister to homeschoolers in Europe and Africa, using their vast experience to bless others.

Children in Church cover

Curt and Sandra have written Children in Church to share “a Biblical basis for bringing our children into worship, but more than that – practical help to make it not only survivable, but to help us teach our children to engage in the service and worship the Lord, too.”  This book is for parents with children age 8 and younger.  Advance-reader hardcopies are available now at for $12.00 with free shipping inside the continental U.S.  See rates for bulk orders.

A Cry From Egypt was written by Hope Auer and illustrated by Mike Slaton, both recent homeschool graduates themselves.  Hope Auer has been writing stories and plays since she was very young.  She began writing A Cry From Egypt, the first book in The Promised Land Series, as a school assignment when she was only thirteen and her family was studying ancient Egypt!  This historical fiction book deals with the period before the Exodus, when the Israelites were still in slavery.
A Cry from Egypt

This book is for children age 8 and older.  Advance-reader copies are $12.50 each at
