This quote comes at a critical point in the story when another character recognizes and praises Sir Daniel for his heroic courage and faith.

“In all my journeys abroad I have never  encountered a man who possessed more courage or faith.”

“My friend, there is one greater than I.” Daniel says humbly. “I just follow Him.”

My 4th Grader’s Completed 100 Book Challenge – Check Out the List of 100 Books He Read!

2 Comments

100 BOOK (1) Thanks to Johanna, my wife, for writing this post about our son’s 100 Book Challenge.

Hi everyone! Daniel’s 100 Book Challenge began at our local libraryEver since he was a toddler, we would go to our library and pick out lots of items. Now to be honest back when our son was little, he primarily went to the library to play with puzzles, and get new videos to watch.

I wish I could say I was a momma that loved to read to her kids, but that was not the case back then.

Thank goodness that has changed, now I enjoy to read with my three kiddos.

So, let’s fast forward and Daniel is in 4th grade, where we find a poster in the Library for a 100 Book Challenge. Daniel decided to take the challenge! 

His favorite genres include: Christian, Comedy, Adventure, Comic, Mystery, and Science. Daniel was able to complete his 100 Book Challenge in 8 months. He turned in his completed book list (see below) on August 30, 2014! Go Daniel!

Here are Daniel’s Top 10 Favorite Books he read  from the 100 Book Challenge. Following this Top 10 favorite books, is the complete list of all 100 books Daniel read, so you can see for yourself what each book is about.

<< TOP 10 Favorite Books out of the 100 books Daniel read>>

10 Favorite Books of 100

We hope this helps you find some good books for your 4th or 5th grader to add to their reading list or even encourage you to do a 100 Book Challenge with your child!

If the book title in the list is bold with an asterisk, then that is part of Daniel’s Top 10 of 100 books.

Memorable Quotes from Nephilim the Remnants

Leave a comment

LastRemnants

There are many memorable quotes found in the fantasy fiction novel, Nephilim the Remnants. This quote specifically comes from the point in the story where the hero, Sir Daniel the Great Son of Henders, faces off against his nemesis, Lord Geremy the black Lord of Lore, for the first time.

“We are one in the same, you and I. The last remnants of an ancient race.”

Standing on a high bridged castle skywalk, Lord Geremy calls out to Sir Daniel making the above statement upon discovering the supernatural glow of Sir Daniel’s eyes. Thus revealing that Sir Daniel is no ordinary man but that he, like himself, is a Nephilim. That is they are both part man and part fallen angel. Then follows an epic battle between these two Nephilim warriors.

Legos + Duck Dynasty = Duck Dynasty Legos

Since our family is huge into Lego building, my sons & I decided to create some fun Lego builds inspired by the TV show, Duck Dynasty. We could only create three guys, since we were short on beards.  The Duck Blind, Kay, Uncle Si, the Duck, and BoBo (the family dog) was created by our oldest son. Our younger son created Willie. I created the vehicle from Season 5 with Phil. We had a blast creating something we have not seen anyone else do, as of yet. Now they have Duck Dynasty Legos for to play with while watching one of our favorite TV shows. So, if you have Legos + like Duck Dynasty, who love the Lord like we do here: check our my FREE Faith Builder’s Curriculum

“This day I call heaven and earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses.

For the LORD is your life, and he will give you many years… ” Deuteronomy 30:19-20 NIV

077Hi everyone! To date I have written about 70 pages for my next book in what will become a Nephilim book series. There will be four books in all; the first, Nephilim the Remnants, is already published and available now, the second I am currently working on, and two more- one of which will be a pre-quel to Nephilim the Remants. All the books will be stand alone stories by themselves, but will have carry-over characters from the original book.

In the mean time, I have recently created a Lego coloring book for my three boys to color in while we were on vacation. I have made other coloring books for them before but this time I decided to created a Lego coloring book and thought that I would share it with all the Faith Builders fans out there. There are over 100 different Lego style coloring pages! So pick and choose your favorites or color them all!

075      073

Note – I did not draw any of these images myself, rather I scoured the web for free lego and building block related coloring pages and compiled them all together into a single PDF file for you to download here for free.

You can always go and search the web for your own lego coloring pages but here at Faith Builders, we have saved you the time, energy, and work of searching for them.
