Hey there! This week I’m excited to share with y’all a couple of great books by Jason McIntire. The first in the series is The Sparrow Found a House.
“Fifteen-year-old Jessie Rivera is living every teenager’s nightmare. Her widowed mom has married a man who wears his heavy Christian values like his sergeant’s stripes – on both sleeves.
Glenn Sparrow is persistent, immovable, and not afraid to be firm. Worse than that, he’s loving, kind – even fun – and he has Chris, Moe, and Katie completely won over.
But Jessie is determined that she won’t be won over, or give up her “freedom” without a fight. She knows what she wants, and it isn’t what they’ve got.
Or is it?”
Follow the Rivera-Sparrows as they search the Scriptures, and follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in every area of their lives. But watch out, there may be some unexpected changes ahead for them!
This was a great, enjoyable read, particularly for someone like me, who was raised with very similar values to the ones expressed in this book. The story is initially one of skepticism and rebellion, but ultimately redemption and the changes that take place when we seek to glorify the Lord, and become individuals that will portray a Christlike spirit to the world.
Geared specifically toward families with more conservative values you will find absolutely nothing offensive in this book. It was written in a light-hearted yet compelling manner that had me laughing… and saying, “What’s next!”
The second book in this series, Flight School, is launching today!
“On the verge of adult life, Chris Rivera is eager to get started on his career as a director of Christian movies. But he’ll have to do it without his best friend Ben, who has traded childhood toys for law books… and a very pretty study partner.
Meanwhile, Jessie is getting a lot of attention from conservative neighbor John and trendy friend Galen – each of whom, for drastically different reasons, seems a little too good to be true.
In the face of hard questions and big temptations, how do you know which choice is right? And where do you get the courage to make it?”
Flight School picks up a couple years after the ending of The Sparrow Found A House. Each character is faced with choices, and the results of those choices are sometimes good, sometimes bad. What will be the ultimate result of those choices?
Once again, Jason McIntire delivers another great book. It continues along in the same humorous, yet thought-provoking, style as his previous one, addressing some important issues, and answering some profound questions.
Of the two, this was my personal favorite, because I could so easily relate to the characters and understand the thought processes that led to their actions. Once again, we’re brought back to the truth that we must daily surrender ourselves, look to the Lord for guidance, and seek to bring glory to Him.
