We are currently looking for bloggers to read and review the extraordinary book The Queen of Katwe as well as a short documentary about the book for your blog. Author Tim Crothers’ latest book is the true story of Phiona Mutesi, a teenager from the poorest slums of Uganda, who — inspired by an unlikely mentor, a war refugee turned missionary — has become an international chess champion.
From living in the streets in the slums of Katwe to learning chess in a Sports Outreach Institute missionary program to becoming one of her nation’s top chess players competing in international competitions, Phiona Mutesi has come a long way from the 9-year old girl who came for a cup of porridge. The subject of dozens of media stories and the book, The Queen of Katwe, which is soon to be made into a Disney movie, Phiona is an inspiration to millions, and especially to girls in a nation where girls are particularly marginalized.

We are currently looking for bloggers to play a brand new action adventure video game, The Aetherlight, and review the game for your blog. Though the game is designed for pre-teens, we feel like this simple game can be used as a great conversation starter for both your blog and your children. By closely following the story of the Bible, but in a steampunk inspired land, players are able to make the connections and discoveries for themselves, and see the Bible stories in a new light.
Do you remember the first time you walked through the wardrobe into Narnia™? The story of Narnia brought a theology into our hands and hearts through immersing young readers in the grand narrative of the scriptures. They may never have been aware, but the story of the Bible told through allegory, impacted the way they viewed this world and their part in it.
The Aetherlight: Chronicles of the Resistance™ tells the same story refreshed and invigorated to recapture a digital generation with the grand story of God.
But it's not enough to simply tell this generation a story - you must let them play it.
The Aetherlight effectively engages kids in the Bible by engaging their imaginations and allowing them to explore it in a way never done before, through something familiar to them - a game!
Embark on epic quests! Join the Resistance and work with the mysterious Scarlet Man against the evil Usurper. Puzzle, quest and craft your way through a fantastic steampunk world that is ruled by the self-proclaimed Emperor’s Automatons and smothered by the poisonous fog. The Aetherlight is where point and click meets RPG!
