THE HOME BEAUTIFUL
Timeless Words of Wisdom for Today's Family
J.R. Miller

Jeff Schwend of GraceGems.org wrote the following: "If there is one author I wish I had read early in my Christian life, it is J.R. Miller--his invaluable Biblical and wise counsel would have saved me from many blunders and sins. No author is so helpful in the realm of practical Christian living as J.R. Miller! 'THE HOME BEAUTIFUL' is must reading for those who desire a loving, wholesome and Christ-centered home!"

The Moody Monthly said the following about the 1945 edition: "These pages teem with gracious counsel, admonition and help from the pen of an unusually thoughtful man of warm sympathies, a rich life experience and a broad outloook. His thesis has been developed on the highest level of Christian thought and feeling."

The Northwestern Lutheran wrote the following: "This volume deserves to find a place in every home. It is well written and well established on the Scriptures. A BETTER GIFT THAN THIS CANNOT BE BOUGHT WITH MONEY."

From the Original Foreword:

"Several months before the death of Dr. J.R. Miller, he made plans for THE HOME BEAUTIFUL. The suggestion had been made to him that it would be helpful if he would take the heart of the books "Week Day Religion," "Practical Religion," "Home Making," and "In His Steps," and make a new volume on Christian home life. It was his purpose to improve on the suggestion made to him by preparing a number of new chapters. The plan was not to be carried out. God called him from earth before he was able to do more than begin preparation of the volume.

However, he talked so fully of his plans to his associates, that it has been possible to arrange "The Home Beautiful" in a manner that it is felt to be in accordance with the wishes of one whose life was devoted to inspiring men, women and children to the life that alone can make the home really beautiful." --John T. Faris, October 1912

This is a masterpiece on the family. It is so simple, and yet so powerful, as it sets forth the privileges and responsibilities of each member of the household in making the home a beautiful place to both live and die.

"If any 19th century American Christian writer warrants reprinting, it is J. R. Miller! His writing style is delightfully smooth, his insights are spiritual diamonds on every page, and his pastoral applications are delivered with the skill of a well-seasoned physician of souls." (Pastor Bill Shishko, Franklin Square, NY)

A contemporary said the following about all the writings of this gifted and godly man:

"His books are restful and soothing, full of quiet but fresh inspiration and cheery optimism. They have comforted and encouraged countless thousands of readers."

One friend paid this tribute to J. R. Miller: "We all loved him. His gentleness made him great. His winsomeness had no weakness in it. Somehow everybody felt drawn to him. He seemed so closely in touch with the best in heart and life. He was as gentle as a child, yet firm as a rock. He was lovable and helpful; always true, always tender."

FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE REFORMED CHURCH
James I. Good

"The chapters of this book first appeared in the Reformed Church Magazine (1893-1895). They then received favorable comment. Since that Magazine ceased publication, there have been so many inquiries for them that it is evident they met a felt want in the Church, and the Sunday-school Board of the Reformed Church in the United States has undertaken their publication in this volume. The author has added several chapters to those that appeared in the Magazine. It is hoped that the lives of these Reformed saints will stimulate the ladies of our Church to greater interest in our splended Church history, and to greater activity as in missions and the practical worj of the Church, in which they already excel." - from the Author's Preface

Some of the ladies considered are the following:

ANNA REINHARD, Zwingli's Wife

IDELETTE D'BURES, Calvin's Wife

ANNA BULLINGER, Henry's wife

QUEEN MARGARET of Navarre

QUEEN JEANNE D'ALBRET of Navarre

and many, many more

SEASONS OF THE HEART
A Year of Devotions from One Generation of Women to Another
Compiled by Donna Kelderman

Publisher's Description:

A queen, an educator, a missionary, a pastor's wife. Some of them single, some married, some widowed, some mothers. All of them, like women today, knew the joys and heartaches of life. But the bond that drew this generation of women together (and connects them to women today) was their heart for God and devotion to Christ. In this year's worth of devotions, you will find spiritual insights from godly women of the past who, like us, struggled with sin, loneliness, and disappointments yet rejoiced in God's love, mercy, grace, and providential blessings. Join them in the various seasons of their hearts and find timeless encouragement and wisdom from one generation of women to another.

Authors include Ruth Bryan, Anne Dutton, Isabella Graham, Elizabeth Julia Hasell, Frances Ridley Havergal, Sarah Hawkes, Susan Huntington, Harriet Newell, Katherine Parr, Susannah Spurgeon, Anne Steele, and Mary Winslow.

+ 366 days of Scripture verses and brief devotional meditations that provide timeless truths, encouragement, and wisdom for your daily walk with God

+ Updated language makes meditations accessible to modern readers

+ Brief, inspiring biographies of each of the contributing authors

+ Excellent gift for Christmas, graduation, Mother's Day, and birthdays for women of all ages

"Hundreds of years separate us from the women whose writings are featured in this devotional. Yet those who share their love for Christ will find them to be kindred spirits. Drawing from the Scriptures to face their own struggles and trials, they speak with timeless truth to believers of every generation. A treasure trove!" - Nancy Leigh DeMoss, author and Revive Our Hearts teacher and host

"Perhaps some of the most challenging yet tender words ever penned come to us from the writings of godly women of the past. Selected by Donna Kelderman as daily readings, here is a collection of such writings. And who can tell what blessings may be in store for us with a year spent in the company of women like Ruth Bryan, Mary Winslow, Susannah Spurgeon, Frances Ridley Havergal, and many others?- Faith Cook, author of Fearless Pilgrim: The Life and Times of John Bunyan, Lady Jane Grey: The Nine-Day Queen of England, and several other titles

BRAND NEW HARDCOVER TITLE
LIFE IN JESUS
A Memoir of Mary Winslow
edited by Octavius Winslow

Godly people speak long after their deaths, inspiring us and revealing to us lives that are worthy of imitation. Octavius Winslow thus took up the daunting task of writing a memoir of his God-fearing mother, Mary Winslow (1774-1854). He viewed her as a grace-filled example of true spirituality, the antithesis of 'religious formalism,' which he called 'the bane of the Christian church.' One simple line captures his esteem for her: 'How powerful and deathless is the influence of a holy mother!'

Mary Winslow's letters are a treasure of experimental and practical divinity. Living, vital Christianity is here set before us in undeniable reality, flowing out of the resurrected Christ. We learn, in her words and by her example, how to 'deal unceasingly with God as God deals unweariedly with us.'

Author Octavius Winslow (1808-1878) was born in London, England, and raised in new York. He was ordained as a pastor in 1833 and held pastorates in new York, Leamington Spa, Bath, and Brighton. A prolific author, his devotional writings exhibit his Reformed, experiential convictions and distinctive, warm, ardent style.

Endorsement "Throughout her checkered life, Mary Winslow experienced much joy and sorrow...In Mary Winslow's Letters, her heart is revealed and profound spiritual lessons are communicated...Mary Winslow's letters are a veritable treasure of experimental and practical divinity. Living, vital Christianity is here set out before us in undeniable reality, flowing out of the resurrected Christ. In these pages, we learn, in her own words and by her example, how to 'deal unceasingly with God as God deals unweariedly with us." The last chapter alone, covering the final days of her earthly pilgrimage, is well worth the price of the entire book." - Joel Beeke (From the Foreword)

THE YOUNG LADY'S GUIDE
to the Harmonious Development of Christian Character
Harvey Newcomb

"A good book from the past for the needs of the present. It is a 'Teacher's Manual' by which parents may scripturally and practically guide their daughters along the path of goodness and godliness. Its principles and practices are lights along the pathway of life for young ladies who desire to become godly women for the glory of God. It should be read, studied, prayed over, and put into practice by parents, young ladies, and - yes - even young men! It should be in every home, and in the library of every young lady. It is a 'companion' book for a lifetime." - Pastor Don Scott

For years the publisher has been searching for a companion volume to THOUGHTS FOR YOUNG MEN by J.C. Ryle. This is it! Harvey Newcomb (1803-1863) wrote 178 volumes, mostly for children and young adults. This volume, YOUNG LADY'S GUIDE, was by far his most popular book, and is subtitled To The Harmonious Development of Christian Character. In the words of the author, "The 'Young Lady's Guide' was intended for a class of females, who have attained some degree of maturity of character, and who are supposed already to have entered upon a religious life." This would be a wonderful gift for graduation from High School or College. While some of the language is dated, having been written over 150 years ago, it nevertheless speaks directly to the heart and mind of young ladies who desire to serve Jesus Christ in the 21st century.

MOTHERS OF THE WISE AND GOOD
Anecdotes and Essays on the Incredible Influence of Mothers Throughout Church History
Jabez Burns

"This book answers the very questions that today's women are asking. The engaging anecdotes and instructive essays are wonderful. I have looked for a book like this for many years. Every mother, grandmother, and spiritual mother - in others words, every woman - will find great help and hope in this book." - Susan Hunt

This book was written in 1846 to honor the role of a mother. Brief biographical sketches are given of such wise and good men as Augustine, John Newton, Jonathan Edwards and many others with special emphasis upon the way that their mothers were used of God in their lives. Susan Hunt says that this is the book she has been seeking for many years to give young mothers to encourage them in their task. Elisabeth Elliot and Nancy Wilson commend this work very highly.

"It is a useful and valuable work, replete with instruction and encouragement...it deserves to have a wide circulation." - John Angell James

"One of the great helps to the modern church is the reprinting of old books by saints of a previous generation. This book has much to offer us in our day where motherhood is not given the honor it deserves." - Nancy Wilson

"The writer has been powerfully struck by the fact, that there are few good works which are directly adapted to give the information, and supply the help which is needed. Good thoughts and interesting facts on this subject are scattered abroad through the length and breadth of our moral and religious literature; but thus it is almost unavailable to those whose benefit and encouragement should be chiefly aimed at.

The plan designed in this volume has been to furnish within a portable and convenient size, a series of delightful instances of the success of pious maternal influence, interspersed with various striking incidents, both in prose and verse, calculated to interest and improve the mind, and followed by short essays on the various duties and responsibilities of the Christian mother.

To collect and arrange has been the chief duty of the Author, being satisfied that it would have been impossible, for him, at least, to have provided original articles of equal value, and as directly adapted to the end contemplated. That the book may prove instructive, edifying and useful, under God's blessing, to that most numerous, important, and influential class for whom it is chiefly designed, is the earnest and prayerful desire of the Author."- Jabez Burns, March 1846

WOMAN: Her Mission and Her Life
New Section: Four Monod Women
Adolphe Monod, a New Translation by Constance K. Walker, Editor

Adolphe Monod is best known for his book "Monod's Farewell" which was published most recently by P & R Publishing under the title LIVING IN THE HOPE OF GLORY. Monod was a gifted preacher in the Reformed Church in France. This volume is the substance of two sermons preached to the congregation in Paris in February 1848.

The Translator has written, "In 2003, Solid Ground Christian Books reprinted an 1852 British translation of this monograph, which has been received with some enthusiasm. Now, as part of a series of Monod's works, a new translation is being offered. The goal has been to produce an English edition that is both more readable and more accurate than the earlier one. As in the other volumes in the Monod Classics collection, headings have been introduced to bring out the underlying structure and progression of the text.

A new feature of this edition is a section showing how Adolphe Monod's teaching was exemplified in the lives of his mother Louise, his sister Adele, his wife Hannah and his daughter Sarah. This section is made up mainly of quotations from family correspondence and diaries."

"You will read and read...and read, through tears and laughter, while wondering how any man could be so astute, so tender, so frank, and so inspiring in speaking to his Christian sisters-whatever their position in life- of the glorious, fearful, humbling and immensely influential calling of the Christian woman. In these pages, written long ago, you will nonetheless find your mother, your sisters, your friends, and mostly yourself, as you hear the passionate voice of a godly pastor and tender brother calling you to repent, to take heart, to reconsider, to resist, and to persevere in the life of humility and love to which you are called in Christ." - Rebecca Clowney Jones

"In this treasure of a book Monod makes crystal clear that the godly woman's overarching mission is to glorify God. Under that ultimate mission Monod clarifies how the godly woman is to do that specifically. He calls it her "distincitive mission." He says, "Do not count on the world to clarify this mission for you. It has never known it, and cannot understand it..." He calls on the reader to "rely on the Word of God." Skillfully unpacking the Word of God, Monod strikingly and specifically communicates the "distincitive mission" of the godly woman and grounds all of His thoughts on the Word of God. This book will equip you for your ultimate mission to glorify God and clarify your distinctive mission as a faithful woman." - Lori Rhodes, wife of Ray Rhodes of 'Nourished in the Word Ministries', and mother of five daughters

"Adolphe Monod was one of the brightest lights in the French Awakening of the 19th century. On the surface this text shows him to be a child of his times. But underneath, it is a passionate defense of the biblical view which sees men and women as ontologically equal yet economically different. That is, in their being as God's creatures, they are equally image-bearers. In their functions and responsibilities they are complementary. In Constance Walker's translation the text is as alive in English as it is in the original French. This text is required reading for the present conversation." - Bill Edgar, Westminister Theological Seminary

MORE LOVE TO THEE
The Life & Letters of Elizabeth Prentiss
George Lewis Prentiss

"Reading Christian biographies has had an immeasurable influence in my own life and spiritual growth. To be able to see the hand of God, guiding, correcting, and sustaining one who trusts Him has encouraged me to believe that true discipleship is possible not only for the great figures of the Bible but for us ordinary folks as well. MORE LOVE TO THEE reveals the character of a woman who loved God and earnestly sought to help others to love Him." - Elisabeth Elliot

"I am delighted about the publication of the rare volume of THE LIFE & LETTERS OF ELIZABETH PRENTISS. We greatly need more biographies of godly women, and this work is certainly in that category." - Iain Murray

Old Paths for Little Feet
Carol Brandt

"Old Paths for Little Feet is a much needed work for our children. The poignant quotes from voices of the past coupled with Carol's insightful applications make a powerful combination. Christian mothers who are serious about imparting truth to their children on a daily basis will greatly value this practical work." - Mary K. Mohler, wife of Dr. Albert Mohler, Southern Seminary, Louisville, KY

"Carol Brandt provides a solid balance of theological teaching and helpful illustrations in leading our children in the Lord. Reminding us of the importance of sound biblical doctrine, she instructs parents on our unique responsibilities to teach and love our children, so that they know of their sin and of God's sovereignty, judgment, and abounding grace in Christ Jesus. I wholeheartedly recommend the book and its teaching!" -Michael H. Griffin, Elder, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

"Many good reasons could be given for publishing this book. I believe the most important reason is that all Christian teaching, all Christian experience must have a sound doctrinal foundation. In my opinion, the doctrinal emphasis is the most important part of the book."-from the Preface by Ernie Reisinger

THE MOTHER AT HOME:
Raising Your Children in the Fear of the Lord
John S.C. Abbott

"Long esteemed as one of the most valued works from the 19th century on the art of mothering and the glory of the work of the mother at home. For any girl who was raised without much discipline and in need of instruction on proper discipline of her own children, this is a superb guide. Rarely in print and worth obtaining at any price. Christian mothers who want biblical counsel on Christian child rearing will find this book valuable." -Grace and Truth Books

"The object of this book is practical utility, not literary effect. It is written for mothers in the common walks of life. There are many mothers, in every village of our land, who are looking eagerly for information respecting the government of their children. It is hoped that the following treatise may render them some assistance." from the Author's Preface

"The Mother at Home" is now being published as the companion volume to "The Child at Home" by the same author. This volume was actually written first and its immediate success induced Abbott to write the companion volume for the children. Every mother and grandmother ought to read this book once a year to remind them of their most solemn duty, in the words of the author, "to lead their children to the Savior, and to prepare them for their heavenly home."

MY MOTHER: Recollections of Maternal Influence
John Mitchell

John Mitchell (1794-1870) a leading Congregational Minister of the 19th century New England wrote this book as a tribute to his mother, Mrs. Abigail Mitchell.

One celebrated author of the day said, "It is one of those rare pictures painted from life with the exquisite skill of one of the old masters, which so seldom present themselves to the amateur."

Originally published in 1849, the aim and character of the work is described by the author in the following words: "However much of a biographical nature may be found in it, this was not intended as a biography, as some have conceived it to be. Its aim was educational. It was believed that such observations on maternal influence and domestic life as are here drawn from memory, presented in a narrative way, might be attractive and useful to mothers of young families; perhaps, also, to husbands and fathers."

THE EXCELLENT WOMAN: As Described in the Book of Proverbs
Anne Pratt, Introduction by W.B. Sprague

In the language of Dr. Sprague, "This is a work that will bear to be read more than once, and each successive reading wiil be likely to reveal some new gem of thought, which, in the general mass of excellence, had been overlooked before. It is a book suitable for the husband to present to his wife, the mother to her daughter, and the brother to his sister; and the more widely it is circulated, the better for the country and the world."

"It is not sufficient praise to say that we have been interested in the perusal of this book. It is just such a book as the times demand. It presents to the female mind incentives to live for something more noble than to flit like a butterfly in the sunshine of capricious admiration. 'The Excellent Woman, described in the Book of Proverbs,' is the text by which the writer enforces the truth that, true dignity and honor are alone attained by a thorough knowledge, and continued practice of the relative duties of life. We recommend it to the careful perusal of all our patrons.' - The Mothers' Journal.

"An excellent book, elegantly printed, and embellished with some twenty-four beautiful engravings. We commend the work most cordially to mothers, sisters, and daughters." Philadelphia Christian Observer

"We have commended no book with more heartiness and good will, and shall be glad if our commendation places it in the families of our readers, as a book to be read." - Watchman and Reflector.

GIRLS: FAULTS AND IDEALS
A Familiar Talk with Quotations from Letters
Introduction, Commentary and Study Guide
Includes a Seven Day Guide and Commentary For Ladies
J.R. MILLER, with Introduction, Commentary & Study Guide by Ray & Lori Rhodes

Girls: Faults and Ideals was first published in 1892. The work before you contains the original text with minor changes and updates. On many pages we have inserted Scripture readings and an occasional comment. When there is a comment the initials LR are included for Lori Rhodes and RR for Ray Rhodes. We have also included a seven day guide and commentary for ladies. It will be very helpful to the reader to look up all Scripture references and to use the commentary/study guide at the conclusion of the book. Though this book is specifically designed for girls and ladies (ages ten to twenty-nine) we think that women of all ages will find it useful. We also believe that this book, as it is presently designed, will be helpful to parents as they seek to raise daughters to be both inwardly and outwardly beautiful. Many girls from age ten and up will be able to read and grasp the basic concepts of this book. Younger ladies will benefit as their parents guide them through the pearls of wisdom contained in this book.

"J.R. Miller was one of the most gifted and godly men of his generation. Raised in a godly home he was privileged to see grace worked out in the family setting. He had a special gift of reaching to the hearts of the young, and in this book he lays bare the highest virtues and the lowest vices of young ladies. Although written more than 100 years ago it is as relevant as the day it was written." - Michael Gaydosh, Solid Ground Christian Books

"This simple little volume is filled with rich, godly wisdom that gladdened and challenged my heart. With insight and charm, Ray and Lori Rhodes' comments and the Word to Parents at the end add perspective and a personal touch, while the study guide brings this late 19th century classic into the 21st century, showing us how to apply its truths to our lives." - Constance K. Walker, Editor and Translator, of several books by Solid Ground

GOLDEN HOURS: Heart-Hymns of the Christian Life
Elizabeth Payson Prentiss

This is a rare glimpse into the heart of a sufferer, as the author of Stepping Heavenward and more love to Thee, O Christ put down her thoughts in verse during the most trying years of her life.

"I trust that many will be blessed by Prentiss' Heart-Hymns, which were born in the crucible of sorrow. I am one of those who, as she put it, 'cannot trace, but trust in Thee.' Read the poems, ponder them in your heart, be glad that we may deeply learn from her lessons." -Elisabeth Elliot, author of numerous books

"A favorite hymn of mine is More Love to Thee, O Christ and I am delighted to recommend this entire volume of Elizabeth Prentiss' inspired poetry and hymn writing to you. It will be a wonderful way to enrich your personal worship." - Benjamin Harlan, Dean, School of Church Music, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

"Elizabeth Prentiss did not squander her suffering. She mined the 'treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places' and she learned that 'I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel' (Isaiah 45:3). In this gem of a book, she gives us a glimpse not only of the treasures she mined but of her darkness, providing a backdrop against which those treasures sparkle all the more brightly. What a gift!" - Susan Hunt, Women in the Church for the PCA

"In Golden Hours Prentiss unmasks the secret of suffering: hard providences answer our prayers to see Him face to face. Reprinting this book is a priceless gift to those who find themselves faced with the stewardship of suffering, in the verdant wilderness of sorrow." - Karen Grant, Author and Homemaker

"I wish I could have known Elizabeth Prentiss and heard her speak of her love for the Lord. Yet, she still does speak to us today through her verse. How wonderful that God is still fulfilling her heart's desire to love Him more and more and more ... and we receive the benefits." - Martha Peace, Author of The Excellent Wife

Subtitled A Study of Feminine Loveliness for Mothers and Daughters

Now, in its 7th printing, this revised and expanded edition of Stacy McDonald's popular Bible study for mothers and daughters reflects a mature and seasoned approach to mentoring young women. With many of the original chapters polished and revised, and several new chapters added, readers will find this resource refreshing and even more useful than before.

Godly women are not born, but raised. Raising Maidens of Virtue is a storehouse of tools for mothers to employ to raise up a daughter whose life will honor God. Written in an engaging style, Stacy McDonald conveys the truth through stories, conversations, illustrations, and memory-making projects, to warmly encourage girls to think Biblically about themselves and their world. Offers useful counsels on modesty, feminine beauty, guarding the tongue, idleness, sibling relationships, honoring parents, contentment and more.

"Young ladies entrenched in our modern society are in a desperate situation. So many have lost the vision for beautiful, rewarding femininity and womanhood. Raising Maidens of Virtue helps restore that vision and guide our girls along the path to godly, joyous maidenhood. In her delightful book, Stacy McDonald has given a helpful hand to mother and daughter alike, offering hope and practical solutions for those of us desiring that wonderful role of women of virute." -- Mrs. Beall Phillips (wife of Doug Phillips)

"Godly women are not born, but raised. Stacy McDonald has, in this work, equipped parents to be about the business of raising up rubies, or rather, that which is more precious still: our daughters. She is a faithful guide, for she is a godly example." -- Dr. R.C. Sproul, Jr.

"In the face of our culture's shameless enticement of young women to view their identity and worth only in terms of their sexuality, Stacy McDonald passionately challenges mothers and daughters together to return to a pure and gracious femininity for the God who made us uniquely for His glory" -- Mrs. Tracy Klicka (wife of Chris Klicka, Sr. Counsel, HSLDA - Home School Legal Defense Assoc.)

"Raising Maidens of Virtue is a treasure-house full of gems of biblical wisdom. Delivered with Stacy McDonald's unique blend of wit, wisdom, and warmth, her years of experience lend credibility to a book chock-full of biblical advice. This unique mother-daughter relationship builder explores sensitive areas in the realm of princess-rearing such as how to develop inward beauty, spiritual sensitivities, and outward behavior that is both pleasing to God and a witness to others of active grace in the heart. It is easy to see why this book has taken a place of prominence in the lives of thousands of mothers and their daughters, and this revised and expanded edition is even more helpful! I highly recommend this book as a valuable tool for Christian mothers and their daughters." -- Becky Morecraft
