A Prairie Girl’s Faith: First Line Friday

Happy Friday, reader friends! I don’t feature a lot of nonfiction because it just isn’t my passion but today’s featured title is an exception! Check out the first line of A Prairie Girl’s Faith and see if you agree!

I’ve been giving my “magazine associate editor” hat a workout this week (oh and my Seekerville hostess hat) so all the lovely plans I had for blog posts here were pushed back yet again. However, today is a day worth celebrating for Hope By The Book… the Launch Issue is being PRINTED on this day!!!

We finished final edits on Wednesday night and y’all could have our baby in your hands as early as this time next week! I want to see some selfies with your magazines, reader friends! If you haven’t already subscribed, be sure to take advantage of the BOOKISH discount code.

Before all the editing fun our editorial team had a big ‘ol brainstorming fest to hammer out themes and article plans for 2019! We are so excited!


A Prairie Girl’s Faith:
The Spiritual Legacy of Laura Ingalls Wilder
by Stephen W. Hines

A Prairie Girl's Faith

goodreads | amazon | bookdepository | christianbook


Virtually every reader and fan of Laura Ingalls Wilder’s children’s books comes to realize that her religious faith is woven into her family’s story of pioneering in the old West.


This is a must-read for fans of Laura Ingalls Wilder and her stories! Part devotional, part biographical, part recipes, songs, and more! It’s rare for a nonfiction title to catch this fiction lover’s interest but A Prairie Girl’s Faith is an exception to that rule. I highly recommend this book!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.

  1. Since YULE LOG MURDER is three stories by three authors, I decided to leave the first of each story.
    YULE LOG MURDER by Leslie Meier
    “Well, I’ll be,” declared Phyllis Lundquist, waving small slips of paper. Phyllis was the flamboyantly dressed and coiffed receptionist at the Pennysaver newspaper office, and the slip of paper was one of the order forms for classified ads that ran in every issue of the weekly paper that chronicled “Life as it is lived” in the tiny coastal town of Tinker’s Cove, Maine.
    DEATH BY YULE LOG by Lee Hollis
    As Hayley stood in her kitchen, a glass of red win in one hand, and her cell phone in the other, which was pressed to her ear, she found herself fighting back a flood of tears. She was desperately trying to stay strong and pretend everything was perfectly fid, but she knew deep down in her gut why her son, Dustin, was calling.
    LOGGED ON by Barbara Ross
    “It looks like a mousse,” my sister, Livvie, said. Charitably.
    “It looks like southing a moose left in the woods” her husband, Sonny, correct. “An unhealthy one.”

  2. oo this looks interesting!
    On my blog this week I’m sharing Swimming in the Deep End by Christina Suzann Nelson but I’m currently reading The House Girl by Tara Conklin so I’ll share the first line of my current chapter (there’s no chapter #s) here: “Do her eyes accuse you?” Hope you have a wonderful weekend with plenty of quality reading time!


  3. The first line of The Liberty Bride by Marylu Tyndall:
    The Atlantic Ocean off the Coast of Virginia August 6, 1814

    What would it feel like to drown…to float listlessly down…down…beneath the chilled waters of the Atlantic?


  4. You busy girl!

    I’m featuring the first line from Carolyn Miller’s latest release, The Making of Mrs Hale, over on my blog today, but at the moment I’m reading Jerusalem’s Queen by Angela Hunt:

    “They are all here, gathered like vultures around my bed, watching with long faces and occasionally bending near to listen for my breathing.”

    Have a great weekend!


  5. Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Looking Glass Lies” by Varina Denman:

    “I woke up in the middle of the night in our cavernous walk-in closet. Again.”


  6. Sounds like a good one! My first lines come from a long anticipated read — Searching for You by Jody Hedlund. “Sophie Neumann nuzzled her nose against Danny’s chest. His arms tightened around her possessively. ‘You’re my girl now. A Bowery Girl.'”

    Happy Friday!
