Stephen Curry: The Children’s Book: The Boy Who Never Gave Up by Anthony Curcio

The Boy Who Never Gave Up is the inspiring true story of NBA superstar Stephen Curry. This fully illustrated picture book biography tells the story of a young boy who many said was too short to play in high school, too weak to play in college and not good enough to play in the NBA.

Precious Children of India: Giving Voice to Destitute Children of the World by Elizabeth Ann Carpenter

Children around the world live in dire conditions without even the basic necessities of water, food, shelter, and love. They often suffer in silence, struggling just to exist among the unexplainable and irreversible conditions in which they find themselves. Many are so young they do not know what they lack – the love of a family and the comfort of a home. Survival is their only concern as they grow up in a world of adults who seem to have forgotten them or are so busy with their own survival that they really do not have time to care.

These first person narratives are compiled from conversations with dozens of boys and girls in India. They put a voice to the suffering that they and thousands more like them endure every day. Children bravely share their stories of being caste bound, trafficked, beggars, witnesses to murder, unwanted, and of suffering great loss. Each child is a witness to his or her own story of survival. From their voices can be heard the desperate plea for someone to care, and if not for themselves, then for those even less fortunate whose voices have not been heard.

About the Author
Elizabeth Carpenter, and her husband, Bruce, have been deeply touched by the desperate needs of children around the world. They answered God’s call to give these children a voice by gathering and sharing their stories. From this calling, His Precious Children: A Story-Sharing Ministry was formed. Their ongoing passion is to work with needy children around the world and empower them through sharing their stories. Their most recent trip was to India.

Elizabeth and Bruce live in Columbus, Ohio, with their two dogs, Tippy and Zoey. They have two grown children, their daughter, Christina (husband Brian), and son, Zachary; also, like a son, Liz’s youngest brother, Kevin. They love being grandparents to Ethan and Oliver too. They are part of the church family at Discover Christian Church in Dublin, Ohio.

Middle school isn’t easy.

It’s when you’re figuring out who you are, who you hang out with, and what you believe. It’s when friends become enemies and boys become…cute. It’s obvious we need some girl time. I’ll bring the discussion. You bring the chocolate.

We all need a day now and then when it’s Just Us Girls.

Life gets tough. People get mean. How do we push through? What does God’s plan mean for our lives? What does it mean to be God’s girl in middle school? Well, that’s what Just Us Girls is all about. Together we’re going to search the Word of God and find out:

* who you were meant to be
* what to do about drama
* where to find a good friend
* how beautiful you really are
* why God picked you to change the world

Just Us Girls can be used as a personal devotional and a group Bible study.

A Note From the Author
Throughout high school I’ve seen girls walk away, leave their faith, and end up completely shipwrecked spiritually and physically. I’ve also seen girls trust God, follow His leading, and live exceptional, adventurous lives in His glory. What’s the difference? Often the outcome was determined by questions and insecurities that started in middle school. This is why I wrote Just Us Girls.
