Franklin and Bessie’s Picks—October 2020

October 23, 2020


This October at Ruth’s Attic Bookstore, we’re featuring books picked by Franklin Graham and Bessie the Cow.

Each month, Franklin picks a book based on its inspirational message, while Bessie picks a book for children to enjoy.


Franklin’s Pick: Praying Women by Sheila Walsh

Prayer is one of the most powerful, life-changing things we will ever do. Yet we often struggle. It’s hard to find the time. It’s repetitive. We get distracted and sometimes even bored. And the answers often feel few and far between.

The good news? There is a simple, powerful way to reignite your conversation with God.

In Praying Women, bestselling author Sheila Walsh shares practical help directly from God’s Word, showing you how to

· know what to say when you pray
· understand how to use prayer as a weapon when you are in the midst of a struggle
· pray as joy-filled warriors, not anxious worriers
· let go of the past and stand on God’s promises for you now

Prayer changes you and it changes the world. You may have tried before, but if you’re ready to start again in your relationship with God, let Sheila Walsh show you how to become a strong praying woman.


Bessie’s Pick: My Breakfast with Jesus by Tina Cho, with illustration by Guy Wolek

For more than 2,000 years, people have started their day with a delicious meal in their bellies and the love of Jesus in their hearts. From bacon and eggs in the heart of North America to fresh baked bread in Antarctica, believers from each continent gather in the morning to share good food and conversation, giving thanks to God for all the wonderful things He’s done.

Inspired by the events found in John 21 where Jesus feeds his disciples, My Breakfast with Jesus celebrates breakfast traditions from around the world. Your child will see people from all ethnicities following Jesus’s model of service: loving others by meeting their physical and spiritual needs.

This lovingly written and beautifully illustrated book will help your child make the connection between faith, food, and fellowship.
