New! Ruddy:  Living on the Wind

Meet Ruddy and his fellow turnstones.  Guided only by the stars, the moon, little crystals in their brains, polarized light, landmarks, and a keen sense of smell, they will fly from Patagonia, their winter home, to the Arctic mudflats, approximately 9000 miles.  Follow this brave band of feathered “guided missiles” as they fling themselves into the air and start flapping.


In the Garden

Be inspired by the story of Jan’s mother, Ellen, in this beautifully written memoir.   In the Garden is a testimony to the power of faith and surrender to Godʼs will.
