A poignant, truth and trust-filled short story from the pen of homeschooled author, Amanda Tero:
Amanda's writing style is creative, straight-to-the-point, and very Biblically solid. In Peace Be Still, Amanda focuses on the necessity of trusting God in fearful situations, even when every circumstance seems to be adverse. Peace, Be Still is also about remaining faithful to our Heavenly Father even when we cannot "see" his face through the storms of life. His Presence is always with us.
A wonderful read-aloud short-story for families, this book is also appropriate for inspirational individual reading. Amanda's stories always lead to the beauty of God's protection and love, the centrality of His Word in our lives, and the necessity of leaning upon our Heavenly Father in the everyday and commonplace circumstances of our lives.
When the clock chimed, Keith counted the strokes. Midnight. His fingers grasped the handle of the lantern. He peeked in the room to make sure his siblings were asleep then his legs led him to the stairs. Trailing behind Dad, the climb seemed an adventure. But the responsibility of his first time alone, at night, urged his body to move swiftly up the steep steps.
Check the lights. Check the wick. Check the vents. Wind the weights. Keith's mind went through Dad's drill and his hands seemed to work automatically. Dad had encouraged him once that he was a natural, but Keith found his hands shaking by the time he surveyed the lantern room. He ran through the list twice more. Everything seemed right, but he still checked it one last time before leaving the room. Hoping Dad had returned, Keith found himself praying again.
