Best Thanksgiving Books for Young Children

With Thanksgiving around the corner, it’s fun to think of something special to give our kids to celebrate the occasion. I enjoy giving my kids Thanksgiving books and books about thankfulness. Reading books together on thankfulness is a great way to encourage our kids to be thankful and get them excited about celebrating Thanksgiving!

Character Calendars

As part of the preschool curriculum I am developing, A Heart Like Jesus, I am creating Character Calendars to encourage our children’s character development in fun and simple ways!  Each month I will have a character calendar available for you on a specific virtue that includes ways to practice the character trait, a Bible verse to memorize, and Bible stories to read, and other fun games to encourage your kids!

Pearce Family Discipleship Highlight

I enjoy hearing creative ways that other families disciple their kids to love Jesus and follow in His ways.  Although each family is unique, we can all glean ideas and wisdom from each other, so I thought it would be beneficial to hear from some families as to what Biblical resources and approaches they have found effective in encouraging their children in Christ-like ways.

Rollins Family Highlight: Hope Family Care Ministries

The Rollins family has been very dear to our family for the last few years, and we are always touched to  learn how God uses them to share God’s love with others in the most difficult of times.  It amazes me how even their kids take initiative and find ways to reach out to hurting kids through the ministry!  I have asked them some questions to find out more about their ministry and how kids can get involved in serving through it.

Keeping God First While On Vacation:
A Family Vacation Devotional

Recently we had the opportunity to take a family vacation with some friends on a cruise to the Bahamas! We had such a wonderful time with our family and friends and enjoyed God’s beautiful creation all around us.   There was only one thing missing… we wished we had a family vacation devotional to do with our kids over the trip to encourage us to keep our hearts more focused on the Lord and His ways!

7 Great Christian Chapter Book Series for Kids

One of my favorite activities during the summer months is reading chapter books with my kids.  I enjoy snuggling on the couch as we read the next chapter and discuss what we can learn from it. There are some great, classic books out there, but lately I have been searching for some good Christian chapter books with a message of faith. We know a few, and I reviewed one of them below, but I asked some friends (and some of their kids) to tell me their favorites and why they liked them.
