I saw a table at last years HomeSchool Convention for this company. As with many companies there, I hadn't heard of Lamplighters Publishing. I passed by their table several times as I walked the aisles of the convention- trying to take everything in. Searching for things on my small "purchase" list for our second year of schooling at home--and being sidetracked often by wonderful teaching tools and books. And yet again- I try make my way past this crowded table, thinking I'd wait until the crowd died down to check it out. BUT! There was always a HUGE crowd surrounding the table--and so I finally wove my way through to see what the hubub was about.
The first thing I noticed was the quality and visual appeal of their products. Stacks and stacks of books-- colorful & richly textured pages. And then, I saw that these books were all based on building Christian character. Their mission is “to make ready a people prepared for the Lord, by building Christ-like character one story at a time. ...deeply rooted in the truths found in Malachi 4:6 and Luke 1:17." That is something I can stand behind! I'll be making my way back to their table at this years HomeSchool Convention- to purchase books for my family & thank them for sharing their vision and heart in such a beautiful, treasured way!!
This is a video clip from their email newsletter. A short film on light in the darkness. There are some inspiring interviews with them on YouTube as well. I included one below that was especially good!
