Christian Heroines

Christian Heroines
When writing summaries of these women's lives I wanted to give other young women the opportunity to put themselves in a heroine's shoes - to see if they'd fit as it were. Because these heroines were just like us... what makes them special is God and his purposes. Who knows what God has planned for our lives? It could easily be persecution like it was for Blandina or the Two Margarets - it could be fearlessly standing up for the truth like Elizabeth Welch. Or it could be a more anonymous testimony to God's strength and faithfulness in our lives... where only our Lord and Saviour witnesses the sacrifices we make for him.

Ten Boys Who Changed the World

Ten Boys Who Changed the World
"This is a wonderful book - in fact it's a wonderful series. Irene Howat writes with a real warmth and insight. People that you have never met come alive on the page. Christian legends and unsung heroes all become friends you can understand and look up to. In a world where role models of real integrity are few and far between the Lightkeeper's series fills the gap!"

Ten Girls Who Didn't Give in

Ten Girls Who Didn't Give in
One little girl read these stories and wondered about how these girls could be so brave! That is what hits you in the face when you read about these characters - their courage, their uncompromising stance for God's truth and the God who gave them that truth in the first place. At a time when young christians around the world know what real persecution is, help your child to understand that not compromising is something that they can do.

The Two Margarets

The Two Margarets
I think I can honestly say that I wrote Danger on the Hill in the space of about ten or twelve days in total. I spent a day at the National Library in Edinburgh and then it just happened. Not much is known about the Wilson children and after Margaret's death the other two just disappear off the pages of history - but this story needed to be told. And those facts that we do know can't fail to touch our hearts. I found my own background of Psalm singing essential to understanding this young girl and her history. I've used that extensively throughout the book to give that necessary authenticity to the struggle of the Covenanter church of the 1600's.
