“This book has truly helped me to see the world in a new light and has greatly encouraged me with my walk with Christ. This is one of my favorite books! Edyth faces things that any of us can relate to. She learns that our lives are not our own, and the rewards of serving Christ are so much richer and everlasting compared to the allurement of this present world. Very, very highly recommended!” — Dahlia, Winchester, Kentucky
“A great story, God has a plan for each of us, and it can include sadness, loneliness, and persecution. Yet He is always there for you, he has promised never to leave us nor forsake us. I love this story, the characters challenge and encourage me to keep pressing towards the ultimate goal. To become more and more like my Savior.” — Ann, Dundee, Ohio
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.
