MY FAVORITE COURAGE STORIES
February 14, 2018
Yes, it is now out: our 99th book and 83rd story anthology. During the last five years, this series has been gathered to the heart by both the regular buyers of our books and those who are searching for true stories to use for church, Sunday schools, schools, and home ministries—stories for all age groups.
Our new collection follows on the heels of Angel, Miracle, Prayer, and Life-Changing Stories. Courage will be followed by Integrity Stories.
Many parents, grandparents, aunts, and uncles, are gifting family members with these books.
All five sport cover art by Marcus Mashburn. You will discover that each cover illustration can be traced back to an incident in one of the stories in the collection. This particular cover painting depicts the hero of the Academy Award-winning movie, Hacksaw Ridge, Medal of Honor winner Desmond Doss.
Many of these stories are biographical shorts preserved for us by famed editor Lora E. Clement.
Here are the stories you will find in the collection:
