Are You the Answer to Someone’s Prayer? by Karen Witemeyer

One evening when my daughter was about 7 or 8 years old, it was her turn to say the prayer at the dinner table. We all held hands and I found myself smiling as she thanked God for the food, for our family, for the day we’d had. The prayer followed her typical pattern until she reached the end. Suddenly she veered off course. “And dear Lord, please let someone get me a drink, because I don’t have one. In Jesus’ name, amen.” Startled, I opened my eyes and scanned the table. Sure enough, everyone had a drink at their place except Bethany. Smiling, I quickly pushed to my feet, eager to answer that simple prayer with practical action. It is rare for us to actually be aware of being the answer to someone’s prayer. More often than not,...

That’s My Girl by Cindy Sproles

The LORD your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. –Zephaniah 3:17 ESV   “That’s my girl!” he said. “That’s doing it the way I taught you. Make that last step. Come on. You can do it. Come on!” He balled his fists and pulled them close to his chest, then glanced at his daughter and smiled. “Just watch. She can do this. I’ve taught her well. She’s taken that first step and now she’s ready. Pull up a chair. Sit. I want you to see this.” I teetered on all fours, my knees bloody, my heart broken. It had been a grueling year. Now it was just me and the boys. Tiny...

Flying Lessons by Lisa Wingate

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men; yet they cannot fathom what God has done from beginning to end. – Ecclesiastes 3:11 I saw the first moths of spring last night. It’s hard to believe it’s that time of the year already. There’s a story of death and rebirth that seems fitting now, when the dead and the dormant slowly press from the soil and burst forth in new forms. Someone told me the story when I was little. Among dusty childhood memories there is one of a weathered hand showing me a cocoon under a milkweed leaf and explaining why the butterfly has such a hard time breaking free. It’s a story I shared with my boys when we found, among our fall pansies, a huge green...

Following Laws or Leaders by Mary Ellis

So don’t boast about following a particular human leader. For everything belong to you—whether Paul or Apollos or Peter, or the world, or life and death, or the present and the future. Everything belongs to you, and you belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God. —1 Corinthians 3: 21-23 Offhand, I don’t recall ever reading the above passage in Scripture, but the pastor used it during his sermon this past Sunday. It’s not a passage that would stick with a person since we humans love to join different groups and affiliations.As America approaches another election year, it’s normal for people to side with the political group which best matches their personal and ethical convictions. I’m often at odds with fellow Christians because I agree with some, but not all, of a particular party’s platform. Yet 1 Corinthians 3: 21-23...

And Then I Was Chosen by Jenifer Jernigan

We stood in a circle on the playground, nervously laughing, chatting, and looking over our shoulders. The boys stood, bowed up like a flock of banty roosters, strutting their masculine sixth grade stuff and talking among themselves. We knew exactly what they were deliberating. Ben, taller than the rest and with dark-brown hair and sky-blue eyes, the most popular boy in the sixth grade, the one all the girls wanted to “go with,” kept looking at me. I wanted so badly for him to choose me, but I was still fairly new to this school, and my friends’ perms didn’t make their hair frizzy, like mine did. They were allowed to wear makeup; I had to wait another year. They were skinny; I was on the fluffy side. And unlike mine (my dad was the “preacher-man”), their dads had...

Embrace Your Moments, Let Them Color Your Life

All through our life, we can’t wait to be older.  Grade schoolers want to stay up late and watch TV.  Adolescents want to be old enough to drive.  Teen-agers want to graduate and get away from home.  Young folks want to build a life of their own.  Middle-aged persons want a better job, more money, better possessions. As we get near the magic age of Social Security and Medicare, we want to retire.  We’re always looking forward, anxious to get to the next stage. Nevertheless, there are times when we want to go back, not forward.  For example, when we reach the end of our allotted years, we want to turn back the clock and start all over again.  And when things don’t work out the way we want them to, when we do stuff we’re ashamed of or...

God Never Changes, Because He Doesn’t Need To

In pre-Socratic philosophy, the 6th-century thinker, Heraclitus, made the following statement: “The only thing that is permanent in the universe is change.” There is no certainty in the economy, our employment, or our health. In life, it appears that only change is inevitable. The Changeless One The nature of God, on the other hand, is quite different from our lives. He is constant and immutable. In Numbers 23, God said: “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent; has He said, and will He not do it? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?” (Num. 23:19) God’s dealings with people may vary in time/space history, but His nature is unchanged by any force outside of Himself. There is nothing more powerful than God. James 1:17...

By His Hand and for His Glory, a Message from Mary Ellis

Dear Reader, My name is Mary Ellis and I want to thank you for stopping by The Vessel Project today. I have found wonderful faith-based inspiration here and I know you have too. I write novels set in the Amish community, along with historical fiction about people facing trials and tribulations in bygone eras. My characters use their faith and trust in God to solve their problems. My hope as an author is that my fictional stories will encourage readers during their own times of tribulation. Shortly after I began my writing career, and experienced a modicum of success, I made a sign to hang over my desk of a favorite Scripture: “But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”  Matthew 23:12 NLT My mother had her own version of that...

Christian Novels Stir Your Curiosity to Dig Deeper in Scripture, a Message from Mesu Andrews

Dear Reader, My name is Mesu Andrews, and I—like you—have found great encouragement through The Vessel Project. Thanks for stopping by today! One thing I appreciate about The Vessel Project is its strong commitment to faith-building resources—both fiction and non-fiction. I write biblical novels—books built on the immutable Truth of God’s Word, adding well-researched historical data, and then filling gaps with plausible fiction. My passion has always been biblical research. I love to dig into the cultural context, original languages, and archaeological discoveries that inform our deeper understanding of God’s Word. Perhaps my interest was fanned into flame during a tour of Israel in February of 2000. Meir, our Jewish guide, coaxed our bus driver beyond the blockades barring entry to the Golan Heights. Our group grew silent watching fences wiz by labeled with land mine warnings, but Meir...

What You Don’t Find Here and Why

There are a gazillion free books available and there is a growing number of  sites that list free and discount Christian books.  The majority of these sites list all genres. Yes, that means the good, the bad, and the ugly kinds of genres.  Since The Vessel Project is a website for those who love Christian books, it’s my desire and my mission to make sure you don’t find questionable content here. With the growing popularity of eBooks, the publishing landscape is changing. More and more authors and writers are taking advantage of publishing directly onto consumer platforms like Amazon and Barnes & Noble or bypassing these altogether and selling their eBooks directly from their websites. In short, the Indie eBook market is exploding. This makes it a bit harder for me to select which free books are posted here...

Dear Reader, a Message from Eddie Jones

Dear Reader, Thank you for being a faithful Vessel Project reader. My name is Eddie Jones and I write middle grade mysteries for boys (girls like the books, too) because I believe reading improves the creativity of young minds. Recent studies have shown the biggest predictor of academic success is not race, income, gender, parents’ education, or location, but the presence of books in the home. And yet literacy rates are plummeting among young male readers. According to begintoread.com:  One child in four grows up not knowing how to read. 3 out of 4 food stamp recipients perform in the lowest 2 literacy levels. 90% of welfare recipients are high school dropouts. 14% of Americans are considered functionally illiterate, meaning they cannot read well enough to function productively in a school or work environment. 29% of Americans are low-level,...

Share The Vessel Project With Others

Recently, I asked for a headcount on the The Vessel Project Facebook Page just to see how far this ministry reaches. The response was astonishing to me. We received shout outs from all across America and as far away as Belgium and Australia and some even further. Matt and I thank you for supporting this effort to bring great free and discounted Christian eBooks to so many. Just in case you don’t know why providing free and discounted Christian eBooks is so important to us. Here’s an excerpt from the about page. Why I started The Vessel Project The answer to that question goes back many years to my childhood. I was saved at a young age (11 years old) but not raised in Church. I’ve always been an avid reader but at that time, the Christian book market...
