In Tales of the Defended Ones, Beth Guckenberger opens our eyes to the fact that we all have story lines. Every day our story lines occur in our family, church, school, sports, etc. God is the Storyweaver and uses all of our experiences to shape how our story lines will affect ours lives and the lives of others. It's a beautiful and perfect thing. The "defended ones" are wounded people all over the world that are struggling with challenges. Tales of the Defended Ones engages it's readers with stories of children in seemingly hopeless situations. God uses regular people, by opening their hearts and minds, to come to the aid of these forgotten souls. These stories will absolutely touch your heart!
Tales of the Defended Ones is written so that all ages can be empowered by it's words. The use of pictures, definitions and facts to more explain the culture, situation and history of the stories were enriching and engaging. I was particularly touched by the story of Jorani, the young Cambodian girl who tries to find work to support her grandmother and younger sisters. She ends up unknowingly being sold into slavery, her life a living nightmare. Sadly her story is not unusual. God saw it all, though, and delivered her to a life of hope and love. This book made me search my heart to discover how I could become a defender of children. With God, all things are possible! Beth Guckenberger is an inspiration and I believe she'll not only open your eyes, she'll set you on a quest to examine where your story lines are taking you.
