Books Are Here to Stay

A Note from Janet

Contrary to the rumors you may have heard, books aren't going anywhere soon. From hieroglyphics to texting, from Shakespeare to a warm Southern drawl, we use words in a varied and ever changing way.  Whether we write them, speak them, sing them, or convey them through sign language, from the time we utter our first words, we need them in order to get our point across. Words bring light to the colorful and varied aspects of life. And what better place to take words and snuggle them up all into one place than in books?

  • Browse SABLE CREEK PRESS for inspirational books and children's middle grade novels. 
  • Enjoy our BLOG ARTICLES where we talk about a variety of subjects along with hosting guest authors from time to time.

Meanwhile, curl up and read a good book. If it embraces a Christian worldview, then all the better. And never forget the most important book in the world, the Holy Bible.

 

"A little book that amounts to a very large treasure.” - Lynn Erickson Valle, National Christian Examiner

"WORDS: SO INNOCENT AND POWERLESS AS THEY ARE, AS STANDING IN A DICTIONARY, HOW POTENT FOR GOOD AND EVIL THEY BECOME, IN THE HANDS OF ONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO COMBINE THEM."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne
