Within the pages of Blanch Nutting’s new book, Wealth Beyond Riches, readers will find a book about a devoted couple who reared ten kids with sacrificial love and godly fear. It is reminiscent of the Little House series, but set 100 years later and in Maine instead of the Midwest. “People want a book which is honest about the struggles faced by families whether it be currently or years ago. The faith my parents exhibited during devastating ordeals challenges all of us today to live for God rather than our own desires,” says Nutting. Whether today or in years gone by, people need to have a sense of their own vulnerability and the need for rearing kids with strong work ethics, love for family, and perseverance in the face of tragedy. Wealth Beyond Riches does this.
After college, Blanch Nutting taught school for three years, then married. After her three children were born, she homeschooled them at times and now works as an aide in a second-grade class. Writing has been an interest of hers for forty years.
