Summer with the Moodys is the first book in the Moody Family Series. This book celebrates the adventures of everyday life in a Christian family. Come along with the Moodys as they help a widowed neighbor, start small businesses for the children, enjoy a family fun night, live normal life, and wrap up the book with two special surprises! Woven throughout the book is the Moodys' love for the Lord and their enjoyment of time together. Children (parents too!) will love Mr. and Mrs. Moody, Max, Mollie, Mitch, and Maddie—they'll come away challenged and encouraged.

Often parents are concerned about negative examples and role models in books their children are reading. One goal in writing the Moody Series was to eliminate those kinds of examples replacing them with positive, godly ones.

One mom wrote: "Our children loved it and kept asking me to continue reading. Even our fourteen-year-old got into it. She got inspired to do something to surprise her parents—clean out the garage, with the help of her younger siblings. It took me a while to realize that your book had prompted the idea! Thank you so much for using your gift of writing in such a wholesome way." ~ Gerlinde

Summer with the Moodys grew out of the need we saw for godly, children's reading material. This book was written to encourage Christian families to a closer walk with Jesus, to a greater intimacy in family relationships, and to a focus on serving and working--all wrapped in a fiction book.
