Children are known to have wild imaginzations, which explains why their stuffed animals talk and invisible friends get invited to tea parties. So it's no wonder than when a child reports a personal encounter with an angel, adults tend to dismiss it with a wry smile and say, "That's nice, sweetie. Why don't you go outside and play?" But Joan Wester Anderson says "not so fast." If Jesus himself taught that the kingdom of heaven belongs to children, there's no reason in the world not to believe that God can reveal his love to little ones through angels. In An Angel to Watch Over Me (originally published by Random House in 1994, with sales of 150,000 copies), Anderson shares more than 30 stories of children's experiences with celestial beings--from a boy whose angels helps him conquer his fear of thunderstorms to a girl who is miraculously rescued from her burning home. From angels who combat evil and darkness to angels who bring news of comfort and joy, each of these accounts is grounded in traditional Christian belief, eschewing any New Age interpretation of the events. For all who are open to the possibility that even children can have authentic spiritual lives--and that attaining a certain age is not a prerequisite for God to touch our lives in the form of heavenly helpers--this book is sure to stir the soul and fan the faith.

Nick McLeod embraces the life of a rock star with enthusiasm—reveling in drugs, women, crazy escapades, and adulation. Among the groupies who rush backstage after his shows, he occasionally glimpses a woman with blond hair and amethyst-colored eyes. Yet every time he turns to look at her, she vanishes. Then one night as he begins his performance, fueled by cocaine and alcohol, she appears next to him on stage, shaking her head sadly just before he passes out. The near overdose lands him in rehab, and now he is rethinking his priorities. Home, family, and a life with his son are tops on that list. When the offer comes to host a reality show to find a “star,” he takes it. Meanwhile, the mysterious woman, Ambriel—who goes by Brie—realizes that although she has been appointed as Nick’s guardian angel, she is becoming more and more attracted to him, making Nick a challenging assignment in more ways than one. She even enters the contest on the reality show so that she can stay close to him and look after him, and he is drawn to her in spite of himself. Falling in love with a contestant is against the rules—and so is falling in love with the human you’re supposed to be taking care of. With one foot in the intense human world of show business and the other in the supernatural world, Nick and Brie’s romance might prove too complicated to survive. Can they overcome the obstacles of both worlds?

Grace has always had wild red hair like no one else in her family and a birthmark on her shoulder that her mother told her was the mark of an angel. When Grace is sent from New York to spend the summer with her grandmother in Trinidad, she looks through the family album and discovers a blurred photograph of a stranger with a birthmark -- her birthmark -- and Grace is full of questions. No one is able to identify the man in the photo, and Grace is left with no choice but to find out who he is and what he might mean to her. What Grace does not know is that her search will lead to a discovery about herself and her family that she never could have imagined. Tracey Baptiste's first novel is a tender coming-of-age story set on the island of Trinidad. Angel's Grace explores the meaning of identity and truth, and the unbreakable ties of a family bound by love.

Most people believe in angels, others are skeptical, and then there are those that simply think it’s hog wash. Angels are real and do exist. The purpose of this book is to encourage our children to believe in angels, and to know that God has assigned angels to watch over us. I want to express to the reader that sometimes we are afraid of certain things, but to know that God has special angels He sends to give us peace and comfort. These angels give us strength to be bold and courageous, they help and protect us even when we are afraid they are always watching.

Angels are part of God's ingenious provision for us, wonderful gifts he has given to protect, inspire, and lead us safely home to him. Because God cares for us and because the angels are his servants, we can claim them as our powerful friends. Thinking of angels can ease our sorrows, strengthen our faith, and lighten our hearts. Yet we often neglect the angels by failing to recognize their importance in Scripture and by ignoring the traces of their presence in our lives. An Angel a Day offers sixty brief meditations on angelic encounters in both Scripture and in the lives of ordinary men and women. Anything but tame, the angels show us what it means to worship God with true passion. They pull off stunning rescues, engage in spiritual battles, carry the dying to paradise, execute judgement against evil, convey messages from heaven to earth, and watch over us day and night. Far from distracting us from God, the angels can act as a window to him, offering a glimpse of his power, his goodness, and his loving intentions toward us. Here is a book to rekindle your hope and increase you desire to know the One to whom the angels bow their heads.
