The Last Archer: A Green Ember Story

Hello, everyone! I’m excited to announce our next read aloud will be The Last Archer: A Green Ember Story. It is a “companion novel” to the Green Ember series. Companion novels take place before or after the main story, or off to the side of the main story. So for The Last Archer, it is set in the same world as the Green Ember novels, but it focuses on the period before the main story of The Green Ember, and on a different set of characters. Our main character here is Jo Shanks. I’m happy to report there are four of these Green Ember stories, which we’ll be able to read together!

You’ll hear names of characters and places you recognize, and we’ll learn more of the back story of all that happened in Heather and Picket’s world. Click here to listen to Chapters 1-4. I’m already appreciating some of the life lessons I’m learning from Jo Shanks in the first chapters. Hope you enjoy!

The exciting conclusion to Dragon Masters #15

Will Drake be able to get back to his time!?

I know that’s what our friends over at Gracepoint Chicago church in Evanston are wondering!

What am I talking about, you ask? That means you need to Read/Watch/Listen to the first two installments of Dragon Masters #15: Future of the Time Dragon before you go on.


Now you can go on to the last installment, Chapters 11-15. Remember to let me know in the comments what book you want to read together next. And send along some pictures if you want to share them as well!

Here’s one from a friend in Fairfax:

I like the smile!


Dragon Masters #15 Continues…

It seems as though Chapters 1-4 were a hit. I saw some aunties and uncles getting into the story too. (Side note for the adults: Even though every single book follows the same formula, I find myself getting into it too!)
Here are some photos from some friends from Gracepoint Davis church:

I broke down the chapters a little arbitrarily for my first video, so I hope that you’ll be happy to know that we go through a whole six chapters for today’s installment!
Here is the link to read Chapters 5-10 – enjoy!
