“Pleasure reading with a purpose.”

Anthems of Zion series

House of Living Stones (Book 1)

In the small town of Bradbury, change doesn’t come often, and it certainly doesn’t come easily. There, things are predictable and comfortable. At least, they were, until Pastor Fletcher hires Emily Duke as the new choir director at Zion Lutheran Church and sets in motion a chain of events that turns the life of his congregation upside down.

Join Emily and her lovable choir in the church balcony as they learn that life together in a small town is anything but small.

“Absolutely, astoundingly, incredibly good.”
– Gretchen Roberts

The Choir Immortal (Book 2)

The people of Zion are at it again. Two of their very own are getting married, and everyone is pleased as punch to be hosting Bradbury’s wedding of the century. Their collective joy is short-lived, however, as busted air-conditioners, melting cakes, and a trip to the emergency room intrude upon the celebration. Join the congregation as they turn in faith to God’s promises of life and salvation to see one another through trying days that demand patience, prayer, and yet another batch of cinnamon rolls.

“I could not put it down.”
– Rev. Jon D. Vieker, Ph.D.

The Harvest Raise (Book 3)

It’s summer break in Bradbury—and that means cookouts, cornfields, and county fairs! But at Zion Lutheran Church, the changes and chances of life don’t take a vacation. Pastor Fletcher must learn to share the parsonage bathroom. Mrs. Scheinberg must face the fact that not every problem can be solved by pie. And when a beloved member makes a life-altering announcement, the entire congregation must trust more than their crops to the Lord of the harvest.

“Full of mirth and meaning.”
– Karin Crum


“Real, authentic, lyrical.”

Dr. Arthur A. Just

“Stubborn faithfulness.”

Donna Harrison, MD

He Remembers the Barren

He Remembers the Barren is a tender conversation with women in the church who wrestle with the issue of barrenness in marriage. Addressing questions frequently asked by those struggling with infertility, the author walks alongside the reader, relaying personal stories both to encourage and support those who are suffering.

“Faithful, forthright, and full-hearted.”
– Rev. Dr. John and Heidi Sias

He Restores My Soul

Utilizing the timeless, rich comfort permeating Psalm 23, He Restores My Soul offers empathy and encouragement to the cross-bearing Christian woman. Never indulging in contemporary self-help rhetoric, Schuermann and a host of literary friends point the reader to a firm trust in God’s promises found in His Word and a resounding joy in God’s mysterious work of conforming His children “to the image of His Son” (Romans 8:29).

“Such sweet incense to our Lord and Savior, and such a strong service of love to our neighbors in this world.”
– Rev. Rick Stuckwisch

Pew Sisters

This 12-session small-group study for women goes and tells what God has done in the lives of real women in the church today. From alcoholism to postpartum depression to cancer, twelve different women generously share the story of God’s faithfulness in their lives for the consolation of their sisters in Christ.

“What Pew Sisters will do for you … is engage you in the very healthy practice of getting outside yourself and identifying with the sorrows of others.”
– Rebecca Mayes
