While Earth sleepily awaits the momentary entrance of her Savior, Heaven’s celestial courts resound with celebration at the prophesied birth of its King. Chesed, a mere “ordinary” angel, who’s yet found most fervent in service and praise, longs for a mere glimpse into the great mystery of his King’s great love for fallen mankind—love which now sends Him to redeem them with His own lifeblood!

Manger Mouse: BUY NOW

What really happened the night Jesus was born? Matty’s mother tells him he will take part in the most important thing ever to happen in history. Why him, a meek and lowly stable mouse? All Matty the manger mouse wants to do is snuggle into the warmth of his mother and fall asleep—but the Creator of the world has another plan for him. Will the little stable mouse surrender to his own needs or bow to the will of the Savior? Children and adults will be touched by Matty’s brave little heart. As the story of that first Christmas unfolds, come join Matty and all the other stable dwellers—portrayed in lush and charming pastel illustrations.

A Donkey’s Little Tale: BUY NOW

Preparing for the journey to Bethlehem in order to register for the census, Joseph groomed the gentle donkey colt chosen to accompany him and his bride, who was with child. Along the way, the charming little beast of burden committed to memory all he saw and heard along the way in hopes that his intuitive insights and attention to detail would be passed down for generations to come. Little did he realize he would be a witness to the birth of the Christ Child, never dreaming he would be pressed into the service of a King. Thus, the little chronicler fills in many gaps in the love story of Joseph and Mary, and the joyous birth of Jesus. This is his little tale.

Pharaoh’s stub- born refusal to allow this results in many plagues afflicting the Egyptian people. Kenyeh gives colorful reports of what happens at the estate.

Kenyeh grows in faith in the God of Israel as Grandfather teaches her about Him, while Johanna’s faith grows stronger as she sees His power. Both girls look forward to packing up and moving into the land the LORD has given to the Hebrews. Together they dream of good things to come.

Powerful Novel Encourages Readers Through Season of Hardship

Author’s Work as an Ambassador for World Vision Charity Inspired Book’s Theme of Sacrificial Love

For immediate release: A mysterious death, missing family money and an Irish castle make Rachel Britz’s new novel almost impossible to put down. Although it’s set in Ireland in 1880, Britz believes it will encourage readers through any modern-day hardship they face. Good-Bye, Lover (Ambassador International; October 2015; $13.99, paperback) follows the story of 17-year-old Honora Gallagher as she deals with the untimely and tragic death of her father and inheriting her family’s sprawling estate, Kings Castle.

9781620205464Set in Ireland in 1880, Honora’s dream is to study music in Dublin, but the sudden death of her father means she must choose between following her heart or returning home to follow the wishes of his will. In preparation for writing Good-Bye, Lover, Britz traveled to Ireland in 2014 to conduct research. “Meeting the owner of the Donegal School of Traditional Irish Music was invaluable,” she says. “He gave me endless accounts of Irish history which I used to ensure my book was historically accurate.”

Beyond the facts of the time period, Good-Bye, Lover is full of heart, instilling in the reader that God is faithful, even in times of great sorrow. “Sacrifice is the hallmark of genuine love,” says Britz. “That is a truth anyone can relate to.” Honora is forced to choose—will she remain loyal to her father and the servants who are counting on her or will she follow her heart and chase her dream?

An ambassador for the charity World Vision, Britz is passionate about meeting practical needs of some of the most impoverished people in the world. “I believe in empowering them with gifts of livestock like goats, chickens and cows,” explains Britz. That theme of giving to those in need is pivotal in Good-Bye, Lover.

About the Author: Rachel Britz , wife and mother of three, is a contributing writer for Women-Inc magazine. She loves to speak at church or women’s events. And she’s a World Vision ambassador who promotes giving gifts of livestock animals like goats and chickens to those in desperate need. In her spare time she bakes cookies for parties and events. She calls Minnesota home.

Renowned Cookbook Author Releases 11th Collection of Irish recipes

For immediate release: It goes without saying, Ireland is Margaret Johnson’s favorite place in the world. Her passion for the country and its cuisine jumps from the pages of her latest collection of recipes, Favorite Flavors of Ireland (Ambassador International; November 2015; $24.99, paperback). It’s Johnson’s eleventh cookbook overall and tenth focusing on Irish cuisine.

Favorite Flavors of IrelandAugust 11, 1984: the date stamped in Margaret’s passport, marking her first trip the Emerald Isle. She’s since recorded 70 visits throughout three decades. “With each new visit, I grew to love Ireland more — the people, the landscape, the history, the folklore, the music, and the food,” writes Margaret. Her latest book, Favorite Flavors of Ireland, is a tribute to her 30 years of exploration of Ireland. It’s also a chance for this expert in Irish cuisine to answer the questions she’s asked nearly every day:

  • “What’s your favorite Irish recipe?”
  • “What’s your favorite place in Ireland?”
  • “What’s your favorite time to visit?”

The book captures Ireland’s culinary beauty season-by-season, and includes more than 100 recipes. For example, in spring you’ll find specialties like Lamb with Port and Mint Sauce and Roasted Rhubarb Ice Cream. Summer features the classic Fish ‘n Chips with Mushy Peas as well as Croissant Bread and Butter Pudding with Blueberries. Autumn includes Grilled Oysters with Black Bacon and winter highlights warmers like Shepherd’s Pie, Glazed Holiday Ham and Traditional Christmas Pudding.Margaret Johnson

About the author: Margaret M.

As a food and travel writer she has contributed to publications in both the U.S. and Ireland including Intermezzo Magazine; Cooking Light; Cara, the inflight magazine of Aer Lingus; Dublin’s Food & Wine Magazine; the Irish Echo newspaper; and to online sites such as thewildgeese.com, and irishabroad.com.
