The Singing Soldiers
You wouldn't send a choir into a battle? Would you set up a sing-song in a stinking old jail? What would you cheer about if your enemy and all his chariots had just gone belly up in the Red Sea? Could you sing a cranky old king out of his bad mood? And what about when you've just lost everything you've ever loved and singing must be the last thing on your mind? Well, each one of these situations is a real life story in the Bible and in this book.Winston doesn't have to battle with a choir but he does have to deal with his freaky aunt Frieda. Avery hasn't been chucked into prison but she discovers that people in jail do like to sing - and that even she can be a bit 'off-pitch' sometimes. Natalie isn't watching any chariots drown but her little brother teaches her that God is awesome. Mike is the one who is cranky and bored but he finds out that God's got plans! And when Danielle doesn't feel like singing - she finds that there are others worse off and that she can always tell God how wonderful he is. The Singing Soldiers - retells the story of Jehoshaphat.
