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!

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!

21 Days of Surprises: A Countdown to Christmas

Several years ago I decided to make a Christmas Countdown Devotional to share with all of you.  As I  prayed about what I wanted it to look like, I contemplated what we as parents really want to prioritize during the Christmas season. These three things came to mind: Sharing the story of Jesus’ birth with our children,
spending special time with our families, and finding ways to share God’s love with others.

Author Highlight: Rivers Houseal – Of Nature and Kings

I am excited to introduce you to Rivers Houseal, a gifted young author, who has quite a gift for writing!  I read her book, Of Nature and Kings, with my kids this past summer. The book was very intriguing and keeps the readers in suspense for a good while  before the secrets  start to unfold!  I appreciated the positive character examples and her Biblical themes weaved into the story-line… I have asked Rivers some questions so you can learn more about this wonderful author, as well as her new book, Hidden in the Hymns!
