*Books and Videos from the "Just for Fun" list

*Mott Media's "The Sowers Series", with titles such as:
Francis Scott Key; Samuel Francis Smith; Daniel Webster; Abraham Lincoln; Samuel Morse, and more.
(These books are written on a childrens' level; however, with so few books available detailing the godliness and Christianity of famous American men and women, and public libraries systematically sweeping all such biographies
and other books from the shelves, [ostensibly, because of the mythical 'separation of church and state'],
we would recommend them even for an adult for a short bedtime read.  Unfortunately, we cannot recommend where to find them; we were lucky enough to find them in the library of one of our local churches.)
Note: 2/8/06 We have found a Mott Media Website which we couldn't find before! 
The Sower Series is available for sale on this website:
