New from Simonetta Carr — Christian Biographies for Young Readers Series — Phillis Wheatley

I am grateful to be able to announce that Reformation Heritage Books has just released another book in Simonetta Carr’s much-loved “Christian Biographies for Young Readers” series—this one being on the famous slave-turned-poet Phillis Wheatley, who became the first published African American. What a gripping story this is of God’s amazing grace—a great read for children aged 7-12 as well as for the entire family in family worship. Well done, Simonetta!

Congratulations to Calvin Beeke

Congratulations to our first born, Calvin Beeke, who turned 30 today. Your mother and I love you so much, my son—more than you can know. I pray that now that you have joined the ranks of middle-aged men (30-60!), God will continue to conform you to Christ so that you will increasingly grow in hating sin, loving the triune God, and cultivating holiness. I wish you and your dear Laura and precious children every blessing in Immanuel for this life (see Heb. 12:1-2) and for a better life to come (see Rev. 21), and pray that we may all enjoy many more years together as a family. May God’s benediction continue to rest upon you personally, upon your marriage and family, and upon your work in society and in the church as deacon.
