Publisher's Description

In this collection of real-life stories, a compelling storyteller paints a picture of God's dynamic movement in 4 cultures, inspiring to trust that God the defender is working in their stories as well. This resource will shrink the macro picture down to approachable, individual stories of real children and teach about fundamental survival issues. The stories address some of the challenging questions that kids have and weave God's promises to orphans into each one. Special Features: Maps of the story settings, photos showing scenes and people, children's drawings as illustrations, facts and trivia about the countries, prompts to get kids thinking about their own stories and definitions of foreign words and important concepts.

    If you want to stir up compassion and empathy in children, reading this book aloud to them will absolutely accomplish this. It also helps them see how God uses people to reach out to those in need. It will expand their view of the world. Each night, I read a couple of pages and then when we finish a story, then we pray for the children of that nation.

    Don't think twice about buying the book. It is absolutely worth every penny!

    I was pleased to read Guckenberger's previous book "Tales of the Not Forgotten," and this book did not disappoint. It continued with stories of orphans and children who were sold and abandoned. But the Great Defender, God, kept them safe. He protected them and ultimately brought them to the other side. God does see every child and every person who is struggling. I love the way this book is written so that you can do it with your child or in the children's ministry at your church. There is room for the child to respond to the story, and it is written at an age-appropriate level. I highly recommend this book!

    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    "Tales of the Defended Ones" is the second in the Story Weaver series. These real life juvenile fiction stories are heartwarming and life changing, challenging the reader to look beyond themselves to become a part in someone else's life and their story.

    The book follows the format of the first book which includes a story that introduces a child in need, from different countries around the world. There is a parallel story that introduces individuals and organizations that minister to orphans, matching them to homes and families moved by God's love and compassion to reach out demonstrating that love while meeting specific individual needs.

    In the six chapters of the book Beth Guckenberger introduces the Story Weaver, the Defender God, the work of Back2Back Ministries and the stories of five children from four counties; Ben and Joseph, orphans from Ethiopia, Antonio from Mexico, Caitlyn, a foster child from Ohio, in the United States, and Jorani from Cambodia.

    Beth is a natural story teller and a gifted communicator. Each story relates the struggles challenging one of these children, and their circumstances. She goes on to show how their story provides the opportunity to demonstrate God's working in their life and to offer hope and protection as He works out His purpose.

    A leader's guide is available for use as a resource or curriculum guide for teaching children missionary vision, compassion for others, and to introduce other cultures. "Tales of the Defended Ones" is engaging, ages graded for children eight years and older. Highly recommended.

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed a my own.

    "Warning: These stories may change the way you see the world."

    Do you have a heart for the hurting children of the world? Do you want to pass that heart along to your children? Beth Guckenberger has written a book to help you do that. Tales of the Defended Ones tells true stories of children around the world - and how our Defender God rescued them from poverty, hunger, slavery, and other terrible situations. Written in language that is not offensive to a child's ears, these true accounts will touch hearts and give ideas of small things even a child can do to help the plight of suffering children around the world. And hopefully, these stories will change a child's life somewhere by impacting yours!

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review.

    What an amazing and powerful book "Tales of the Defended Ones" is.

    I enjoyed Beth Guckenberger's writing style; it was simple, easy to read and descriptive.

    I journeyed to different parts of the world and learned about precious children. Children that perhaps seemed to have been forgotten, but weren't. Our heavenly Father watched over their lives and had a specific plan for each of them.

    Beth Guckenberger refers to God as a Story Weaver. God is writing different chapters of their lives, our lives and the generations to come.

    While reading about these children, I couldn't help but cry. What beautiful stories of redemption.

    I highly recommend "Tales of the Defended Ones", you will definitely be stirred, moved and motivated to action.
