Every one of us is on a journey.   People...places...experiences...all have an impact one way or another on who we are becoming as we walk through life.  God is the Author of my journey and nothing is wasted in His economy.  Every day offers new opportunities to learn and grow.  In My Reflections, I share some of the things that have impacted me and the lessons my Heavenly Father has taught me in the midst of them.  

Today's Truth in Yesterday's Stories 

​Inspirational Historical Fiction

REVIEWS:    

"R. K. Livingston has written a compelling piece of historical fiction in Elijah's Boy that sensitively illustrates the Biblical story of Elijah. Personally, I could not put it down and was intrigued from the start. I eagerly await her next book, believing that this kind of biblical historical fiction is a wonderful teaching tool that will excite and encourage our children to follow God."

"Last year, I had the wonderful opportunity to take a trip to Israel and visit many historical sites. One of my favourite places was Mt. Carmel where Elijah called down fire from God and proved once and for all Who was worthy of the Israelites’ worship. R. K. Livingston took me back to this site through the retelling of the story in Elijah’s Boy, a historical fiction about Nathaniel, who became the servant of the prophet Elijah. I enjoyed reading about Elijah’s story through the point of view of this young orphan boy. I especially liked his reaction to Elijah’s unusual request of the widow and the resulting miracle. I read the entire novel in one sitting. This is a great book for children aged 9 to 12 in grades 4/5. I highly recommend it!" - Kimberley Payne – Author & Speaker

ELIJAH'S BOY is a middle grade historical novel. It wasn't easy for orphans living in the Samaria of King Ahab and Jezebel, his Queen. For the boy, Nathaniel, survival was what mattered most...until he became the servant of Elijah, the mysterious prophet of Yahweh. It was a dangerous time for anyone who still served the ancient God of the Israelites, particularly when serving Yahweh meant defying the King. Was Elijah's God worth dying for? Nathaniel wasn't sure. This is the story of a young boy's journey to faith at a time in history when taking a stand for God could cost him his life.
