Twelve-year-old Dahlia has always lived at Silverton Manor-having spent fifty years as its resident ghost. When Oliver Day and his family show up as house-sitters the day Mrs. Tibbs, a Liberator sent by the Spectral Investigative Council, arrives to teach Dahlia the proper rules for ghosting, Dahlia can't wait to make new friends. But the unscrupulous ghost hunter, Rank Wiley, and the crooked town councilman, Jock Rutabartle, plan to rid Silverton Manor of its ghosts and sell it to the highest bidder. With her home and friendships at stake Dahlia may have to break the rules of ghosting as quickly as she learns them to solve the mystery of her death and save the manor. Equal parts charming and eerie, this ghostly caper hits all the right notes for the middle-grade audience.
Want to help teenagers build a lasting life of faith? It all begins with a solid foundation! "10-Minute Moments: The Basics" will help students in their spiritual journey, whether they're new followers of Jesus or have been Christ-followers for years. The truths in this book aren't called "basic" because they're childish or simplistic; they're "basic" because they're foundational and essential to leading a life that honors God. Teenagers will discover a fresh understanding about God from the Gospel of John, one of the clearest and most-read books of the Bible. They'll explore the fundamental beliefs and teachings of Jesus, and they'll encounter a deeper of everything God has done for us. Each day's reading only takes about 10 minutes-a great step toward building a personal habit of daily time with God. This engaging book is a daily devotional that's set up as a journal. Students read a Bible passage, chew on a few questions, consider some suggestions for prayer topics, and then write down their thoughts in their book-or engage in an experiential idea based on that day's theme. It's a one-month plan that's easy to read and easy to stick with. Use 10-Minute Moments: The Basics as part of a small group or retreat, as a graduation gift or a birthday gift, or just have them available to students in your youth ministry.
