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. Yet, 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.
