Best Easter Devotional for Kids: Why Easter?

I have been looking for a great family resource that prepares our hearts for the monumental event we tend to call Easter, although “Resurrection Sunday” is a more appropriate title for the Christian holiday. Anyway, I was excited when I first heard about Why Easter? by Barbara Reaoch. This absolutely wonderful devotional has four full weeks of devotional lessons to help families prepare their hearts for Easter.

A Beautifully Charming Book: How to Catch a Prince

Rachel Hauck's latest book in The Royal Wedding Series, How to Catch a Prince, is a down to earth, good ol' romance.  This story was a delight to read.


Book Review: I Can Learn the Bible

I Can Learn the Bible:  52 Scriptures Every Kid Should Know sounded like a book with a lot of potential.  Right off the bat, I spotted several attributes in this book that I thought were very positive. First of all, I love that this book tackles "weighty" subjects.


A Cat's Perspective: The Tree

So…I’m trying to figure out what the big deal is about this tree inside our house.  I’ve seen trees OUTSIDE.  Um, not that I get the RIGHT to go outside, but I’ve seen them through the window.  (It’s a rough life.  SIGH.)


Nature Girl: Great Book for Nature Loving Girls

Nature Girl:  A Guide to Caring for God's Creation by Karen Whiting and Rebecca White is a great resource for girls who are interested in knowing how to take care of various aspects of God's creation.  The beginning of the book states that "Going green is about making God's earth a healthy place to live" (9).  I like the authors' practical advice that "It's really just about making smart choices" (9).

Another Brilliant Fairy Tale Retelling from Melanie Dickerson

Ever since I was a young girl, I have always loved fairy tales.  The romance, the intrigue, and the idea of good conquering evil has always appealed to me.  So, when I first was introduced to Melanie Dickerson's books, which are grown up versions of beloved fairy tales, I fell in love all over again.


Weird and Wonderful Creations---A Great Book for Young Animal Lovers

My seven-year-old daughter wants to rescue animals when she is grown up, and she wants to acquire as many facts about animals as possible.  So, when I saw Weird and Wonderful Creations, I thought that it might be a perfect book for her. Well, I was right!  She loved it.


Change Happens

Well, it's been a long time since I've posted.  Time has a way of...well...getting away from us sometimes.  Life happens, and when it does, we seem surprised.  Sometimes life is so encompassed within routine that the inevitable sneaks right in, snatches that routine away, and we're surprised.  Life has changed.  Yet, isn't life simply about change? If things stayed the same, we'd all be stagnant.  We need to change; therefore, things don't stay the same.
