9780736910736: Simple Acts of Faith: Heartwarming Stories of One Life Touching Another

The beloved art of Normal Rockwell chronicles small-town America and reflects the simple kindnesses that paint ordinary life with shades of the extraordinary. This gathering of select Rockwell classics is joined by stories that illuminate acts of goodwill that transformed people's lives:

  • A cycle shop owner gives Lance Armstrong his first bike, and the rest is history.
  • The young, hurting Frank Peretti is shown compassion that opens up his heart.
  • One man's sharing of faith changed the life of shoe salesman Dwight L. Moody.

Norman Rockwell fans, Americana collectors, and those who cherish an uplifting look at life will treasure this celebration of family, community, and the goodness that overflows from the simplest acts of faith.

About the Author:

Margaret Feinberg is a popular Bible teacher and speaker at churches and leading conferences such as Catalyst, Thrive and Extraordinary Women. Her books and Bible studies have sold over 600,000 copies. She was recently named one of 50 women most shaping culture and the church today by Christianity Today, one of the 30 Voices who will help lead the church in the next decade by Charisma magazine and one of the '40 Under 40' who will shape Christian publishing by Christian Retailing magazine. Margaret currently lives in Colorado, with her husband, Leif and their superpup, Hershey.

Norman Rockwell found professional success early. By age 22 Rockwell painted his first cover for The Saturday Evening Post, and over the next 47 years he would create 300 more. Rockwell received the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, for his "vivid and affectionate portraits of our country." In 1978, he died at his home in Stockbridge at the age of 84.

Review:

Life is made up not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness and small obligations, given habitually, are what win and preserve the heart.
