When God Made You by Matthew Paul Turner

Pin It

As children grow, they begin to learn more about the differences in their personalities and unique character traits, especially when compared to others around them. My son and I have been recently blessed with a beautiful new picture book by author, Matthew Paul Turner, called When God Made You. I always love books that offer encouragement to children by reminding them that their individuality ties in with their own special purpose in life–one that our great Lord has provided to each of us for His own exceptional plan. When God Made You is a story that does just that, while also combining exquisite illustrations to bring everything to life.

You Know You're a Mom by Harry H. Harrison, Jr.

Pin It

I love reading books that tug at my mom heartstrings. Other times, it's just fun to hear the funny or more "real" anecdotes of being a parent. Many moms enjoy finding a good collection of memes that begin with "You Know You're a Mom When..." I know that I personally get a kick out them from time to time.

Now there's a new book by author, Harry Harrison, that actually includes tons of a truisms about being a mother, and in case you haven't guessed it, the title is You Know You're a Mom.

Can you believe that we are heading towards the end of March, already?! Time is sure flying by and Easter will be here before we know it. I've also been coming up with various goodies to fill my son's Easter basket this season. I usually like to include all kinds of trinkets, and make sure to never forget to add a few new books for him to enjoy. 

Zonderkidz has several new releases just in time for the Easter holiday. From beautiful picture books that share the meaning of Easter to fun Bible activity books, these would make a great addition to any child's Easter basket this season.

Grace Through Christ

Pin It

We are currently in the season of Lent and as I think about all the love that the Lord has for us, I can't help, but feel so blessed. This sometimes makes me think about the old hymn, Amazing Grace:

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind but now I see.

I also can't help but think of 2 Timothy 1:9 in the Bible, where it tells us that we were given grace through Jesus all the way back since before creation. Isn't that something?! So as we sit in remembrance of all Christ had to endure in order to save us from our sins, we can also remember how much God loved us to send His one and only son to make the ultimate sacrifice. With a gift like that, let this be a reminder that we have so much to be thankful for.

Thank you Lord for your amazing grace!

Rain by Sam Usher {Children's Picture Book Review}

Pin It

During the cold winter months, sometimes the temperatures are so frigid and wet, that the opportunity to spend time outdoors sounds the least bit appealing. Of course that doesn't stop my little one from eagerly asking to go outside and play. I can totally understand his disappointment when it may not be a viable option. The main character in our latest picture book, Rain, also knows what it's like to eagerly await all the fun he can have by going outside to play, and the disappointment that can happen when the weather isn't necessarily cooperative.
