Message in a Bottle Book Launch and Give-away! (Blog Hop Stop #5)

Posted by Jocelyn Green on Feb 27, 2017 in Books, Give-aways | 39 Comments

Flames lapped at the monk’s robes. He raced down the corridors that crackled with the collision of dampness and heat, dodging fire-lit debris. So this was to be the end, then. The night the stones of Ballyfir Monastery would tell their last tale…

So begins the tale of a humble monk, his unwavering courage, and the bronze bottle he sends into the night with a prayer that its contents might bring hope—the very word etched into the bottle—to someone, somewhere.

Louisiana and France’s Forced Colonization Experiment

Posted by Jocelyn Green on Jan 09, 2017 in Behind the Books | 1 Comment

Decades before Marie Antoinette entered the scene, France was already in a desperate position. In 1714, the nation lost a thirteen-year war which had drained the royal coffers and disillusioned most of its military. Soldiers returning home had a hard time finding work. The weather hadn’t been cooperating with the farmers, driving rural people in to the cities to find other ways of earning a living. The streets of Paris teemed with poor.

The monarchy didn’t like it. Vagabonds and the unemployed were arrested and thrown into prisons to keep them off the street. Prostitutes, too,...

Civil War Christmas Song: I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day!

Posted by Jocelyn Green on Dec 14, 2016 in Civil War History, Journal | 0 Comments

Four years ago, I shared this  poignant Christmas song on the blog, in the wake of the shooting at Sandy Hook, and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. But now in 2016, the words are just as meaningful as ever. It's been a long, hard year, hasn't it? And if there is anything that personal or national hardships teach us, it's the simple fact that we need a Savior. This Christmas, as we celebrate Jesus' birth, may we remember that Immanuel, God with us, is still here.

The Christmas songs "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day" is a powerful reminder of that truth, with words by Henry...
