About The Author
We are a family of six children. A long time ago our mother came to a realization that she could not read all the books we wanted to read before we read them so we were given some simple rules to follow. 1. If a book bothers us for any reason, stop reading. 2. If we are confused, feel free to bring it to our parents attention. 3. If an older sibling says not to read something, listen. We have further developed our own sense of what we should and shouldn't read in the years since then. Here is a description of how we weed out books. First and foremost if a book feels like it is insulting our intelligence or mocking our belief in our God, we don't read the book. We don't mind if the characters don't believe in God. We just wont read a book that mocks our beliefs. We can usually figure out what agendas a book is going to push by looking at a few places. We read the section about the author, this lets us know sometimes whether an author will get into subjects or opinions that we don't support. We also look on the back of the title page (the one with the copyright). It will sometimes include a more accurate summary and/or a list of subjects it touches on (this is used by libraries to classify it for their shelves). Some of the subjects we are cautious about are as follows: gender identity, feminism, woman's (anything), religious (even if it is Christian we are still cautious because we have come across beliefs that are not biblical), social issues, relationships, and the list could go on but you get the idea. We don't have a problem with fairies, witches, ghosts, or other fantasy or science fiction characters or creatures, but we will tell you if any book we suggest in our coming lists may contain these things in case you do have a problem with it. We hope that you enjoy the books we recommend as much as we have enjoyed them over the years.
