God is a great storyweaver. One weave or strand is weak but He brings so many weaves into our lives to make us stronger and better. One weave that I have been blessed over the years to have been able to meet and hear her heart is Beth Guckenberger.

Beth's heart for the orphan is overflowing. You may have read it from Reckless Faith or Relentless Hope two fantastic books she has written. You might have been privilege to experience it by working along with her and Back2Back Ministries [...] on one of the multiple sites spanning the globe.

Beth has always had a way of bringing the stories of the children come alive. She can bring you up, tear you down, give you a glimpse of hope, or a glimpse of pain. But in it all she shows how God's story has never stopped. His plan, His will, and His provision will win!

Beth just had a new book come out in press from Standard Publishing. Tales of the NOT forgotten is a book written for young adults to capture them in how the master Story Weaver has each of us in His plan. I bought this book for my 9 year old who is traveling with me this year to visit the Monterrey Campus of Back2Back. Dakotah, my daughter, has heard the stories. She has seen the pictures and even communicates with one girl around her age who lives in Casa Hogar Douglas. I want her to fully be captured by the James 1:27 call. But mainly I don't want my child to ever think that she is Forgotten.

So anyways, I got this book for my daughter. But of course I had to read it first. I picked it up and could absolutely not be pulled away from it. In a matter of about 2 hours I had digested the entire book. What an AMAZING title. These stories are fresh, amazing and well written about children who Back2Back serves.

I picked this book up at a conference I went to & it's fantastic. After meeting Beth, I couldn't wait to read it! I actually read it on the airplane on the way home. (Hint- if you're an easy crier, have some tissues!)

I had grabbed several copies & gave one to my 8 year old son. He read it in about 3 days & loved it. It really opened up his perspective to a world outside of his own. He has since asked questions about other countries & how people live there. We are now trying to find a mission trip to get him even more perspective! I love that he is now sensitive to the needs of others!

I also gave it to one of the high school boys at our church. He read it & then insisted that my husband (who is the youth minister) use the curriculum with the youth group! He said it was nice because it was an easy read, yet the stories really drew him in. I just find it awesome that a book appeals to men & women, boys & girls! After you read it, you'll want to learn more about Beth's ministry (Back2Back Ministries), too!

It's an easy read (originally intended for 8-12 year olds I think), but it's very good! Has 4 stories about 4 different children in orphanages that are supported by Back2Back Ministries. Very touching and real! Not too intense for younger kids, too!

"I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands." (Isaiah 49:15-16)

Tales of the Not Forgotten is one of several books now by Beth Guckenberger weaving stories from the world of orphan care ministry with the Scriptural promises of God's comfort and faithfulness. This book is aimed specifically at students: 4 stories in 4 chapters, with exercises for reflection at the end of each chapter. The 5th chapter serves to draw the storyline together and pose a challenge to the reader to consider the Story God is writing with their life.

Though aimed at students from upper elementary through high school, we used this with adults as something to read quickly on the plane ride down to Mexico. It worked well in framing our mission and serving experience, and helped keep our eyes open to what God is doing.

Wonderful book - her disclaimer that "These stories may change the way you see the world" is perfect. An easy read that goes quickly.... It is a compilation of several short stories chronicling an orphan's story in one of the countries Back 2 Back Ministries has a presence. Having now gone on a mission trip to their Monterrey, MX location, I can really relate to these stories and it makes me want to do more to help these poor children.

After hearing Beth speak at a conference I wanted to check out some of her books and started with The Tales of the Not Forgotten! It is a quick and very enjoyable read! What I loved most about it was the way that it increased my awe and love for God as she portrayed stories of God working in stunning ways to orchestrate and care for those who are on the margins of society! It reminded me that we never know what God is up to as we are being faithful in doing what God has called us to do! Also, looking forward to reading this book to my kids as it will inspire the same kind of awe and love for God in them. Written in a way that it is accessible to young kids (I would say 5 and up) while still moving and inspiring for adults! Also plan on recommending the books to the teens in our youth group!
