Morphology Junior Game

Great family game! This is a great game for families--it's fun and challenging for all ages.

Everyday Battles – Wonderful Family Book!

Everyday Battles

This book reminds you to keep your focus on God and your relationship with Him in the midst of the Everyday Battles we all encounter. I have just finished reading through this book myself, and I am looking forward to reading it aloud to my family as we have all (girls included) enjoyed Bob Schultz’s previous books. With many more humorous and memorable examples along with great applications of spiritual truth, this book will be among the treasured ones on our bookshelves.

Lightwedge Paperback

Put this on your child’s wish list for them!

We held off on buying these for years because of the price, but when we lucked out and happened to see they were on sale last year before Christmas one day we jumped on the offer quickly to try them out and haven’t regretted the purchase yet! If anything, we wish we would have invested in one (or more) sooner! Works as well as everyone else describes. Car trips and camping trips and overnights at the grandparents where all the kids share a room are now much more pleasant because the kids are all readers and we don’t have the light problems like we did before. It’s pricier, but I’d go straight for the bigger one (my kids don’t read a lot of smaller paperbacks), and the case as well (my kids are somewhat careless and I’d like to protect my investment as long as possible!) If these are properly returned to their cases after use, they should last for all my kids childhoods!


Lightwedge Paperback Ocean is on sale at Timberdoodle.com for only $14.50 (save $9.90)!

Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches

Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches

Just what I needed…

I bought this (Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches) thinking “how will I find time to read this, with all the books I already haven’t read??” I am so thankful I took the plunge! First, I was so relieved to receive the book and find it is small, less than 100 pages, and has quick-read chapters. I finished half of it in under an hour! But the best part is, Rachel hit the nail on the head. Does she live at my house?? Its like she knows exactly what’s going on in my head. Yikes. But what a fantastic perspective she has. How often do I get frustrated with my children’s behavior, but the reality is that they are acting no better than I am?? How often do I simply forget the temptations they have overcome because they have been replaced by other annoyances? Rachel is very good at reminding us of our own shortcomings, and also giving encouraging ways to train our children. Definitely the best book I have read in quite some time! And it provided the encouragement I really needed right now! Thanks Timberdoodle!
