Christ Arose: Blog Tour



Faith Blum has a new book! She wrote, edited, and published a short story in just three short days and you can now get it for free! Read on to learn more about it.

About the Book



And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow: And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men.

No longer could I say I was lonely. But oh, how I wish I could! Who could have done such a thing to the Creator of the world? Who had so much hatred for Him?

Excerpt



He approaches the woman and speaks quietly with her. “Woman, why weepest thou? Whom seekest thou?”
Keeping her head down, she says, “Sir, if thou have born Him hence, tell me where thou has laid Him and I will take Him away.”
The Creator’s Son looks at her for a short time, then opens His mouth. “Mary.” The way He says it. It speaks of His love for her troubles and of His compassion. He doesn’t scold her for weeping, He gently and quietly says her name. “Mary.”

Orphans



My sister recently commented that my books usually have a widow or widower who ends up getting married. When she said that, I started thinking. She’s right. I really do. Not only that, but I also usually have an orphan in my stories as well. When I started writing just over four years ago, that wasn’t my intention at all, but since then, I guess I’ve been interested in taking care of widows and orphans like James 1:27 says to do:

Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. (NASB)

Now all I have to do is do it more in real life. One way I can do that is by donating half my income from the Orphans of the West series toward supporting orphans through the organization World Orphans. Thank you in advance for helping me.

I guess you could say that orphans have been on my heart for quite some time. I don’t really know exactly when it started, but in the past two years I have especially been thinking about them. That desire to help has culminated in this book, the first in my Orphans of the West series, Savior, Like a Shepherd.

About the Book

The ground shook and a rumble sounded through the air as the train squealed to a stop. Maybe, just maybe, I could carry someone’s bags without the porter taking notice. And then there was the even bigger maybe: Maybe I could get enough money to at least buy a crust of bread for Trevor and Tabitha to share.
I hid behind the boxes in the freight yard and kept one eye on the porter, and the other on the second class passenger car. The porter had his attention on the first class car, so I slipped into the gathering crowd.
