Awesome New Children’s Bible


We got The Story Travelers Bible* last month from Tyndale in exchange for a review here, and I have to say, we are really enjoying it! Actually, this Bible has now supplanted the previous children’s Bible that we were reading with our kids in the morning!  My 5-year-old is really into it and my 3-year-old is able to follow along…

I really want my kids to be Biblically literate.  I want them to know God’s Word because I utterly believe that knowing God and…

Practical Hope for the Highly-Sensitive Mom


I became clued into the fact that I was most likely a highly-sensitive mother when I was reading the book, Raising Your Spirited Child by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka.  As I read through the descriptors of what comprises a highly-sensitive child, I found myself identifying personally with many of them!  Needless to say, in a home with more than one highly-sensitive, spirited…
