Precious Moments 5 Minute Bedtime Treasury (Book Review)

Tracy / October 30, 2015

This month, I received a copy of Precious Moments 5-Minute Bedtime Treasury to review. I have long been a fan of Precious Moments.

The Precious Moments characters have long been a sweet reminder of positive and uplifting messages. The…

Lulu Tutu Win or Lose I Love You! (Book Review)

Tracy / October 20, 2015

4H is a whole new world for my family. In the past, we tried 4H and never could really get a program started. Now, we’re part of a thriving 4H community and my children are involved in all sorts of wonderful learning adventures. Our first project was the 4H chick chain. It involved raising chicks to full-grown hens. In the…

Book Review: NKJV Study Bible for Kids

Tracy / October 12, 2015

This has been a year of replacing Bibles in our family. Courtney’s Bible literally has entire books falling out of the binding. My little ones have either outgrown the version we originally purchased, or the book is just completely worn out. Needless to say, we’ve been shopping around to replace them. It’s been interesting to look through the many different…

Book Review: Read Me a Bible Story 365

Tracy / September 30, 2015

Our evening devotions are one of my favorite times of the day. It’s that time when we can sit and snuggle in the living room.

Book Review: God’s Good News (Devotions from Billy Graham)

Tracy / September 9, 2015

My first review book this month for Tommy Nelson is God’s Good News Bible Storybook. I grew up watching Billy Graham on TV. It seemed that most of the nation stopped for his broadcasts (or at least that was my perception). As I grew older, I learned more about his ministry to presidents that spanned decades. My husband had the…

Tracy / September 5, 2015

Our first month of homeschooling has officially come to an end. When I posted after our first week, I was very happy with the direction we were taking. It’s been an exciting year, so far.

Book Review: 5 Minute Bible Stories

Tracy / September 1, 2015

I’m sitting down to (finally) write my book review of 5 Minute Bible Stories. Our school days are well under way. We are a few weeks in and the time seems to already be passing so fast, I can hardly keep up! (Can you believe it is already September??!!  -YIKES.)
