My Golden Ship
We all know what it’s like to harbor that gnawing feeling that rears its ugly head as envy. Even the Christian is not exempt, as we see in the case of Charlie. “But don’t it seem that some folks should have everything, and the other folks nothin’?” Charlie soon realizes that envy easily escalates to bitterness and resentment, and that his idea of “having everything” is far from the truth.
Through an unexpected encounter with the likes of Black Darley and Crafty Joe, Charlie is horrified to see envy’s hateful passion in their dark, evil plans. He must not shrink in fear, but must rally up courage to do what’s right in the face of imminent danger. Will he act quickly enough, or will it be too late?

About the Lamplighter Rare Collector’s Series
Lamplighter stories are much more than good and wholesome reading for the family. The inspiring role models found in Lamplighter books show a child that outward compliance alone will not carry a child through the stresses and disappointments soon to be faced in adolescence and adulthood, nor are they a substitute for faith in Christ. As we learn of perseverance, courage, loyalty, humility, these are qualities to emulate and pursue, but as children read in stories of others like them trying their best and falling short, they will powerfully learn their need for the gospel. Though life is often not easy, we can be confident that each disappointment and trial is designed by a loving God for our good.
Lamplighter books are carefully designed to draw children back to the Bible, to ensure that each story reflects the character of God. Often, key Scriptures are referenced so that they may be stored in a child’s heart. Lamplighter volumes are recognizable right away by their beautiful, high-quality bindings. But the other unique feature of a Lamplighter book, in contrast to other publications of the same title, is that the Lamplighter editions have been enhanced with helpful footnotes and woven with threads of Biblical truths that will be etched into an awakened moral conscience. These characteristics are what make our Lamplighter Collection so unique and highly valued.
