IMG_0524

Lately (you may have noticed), I’ve had an influx of study Bibles that were developed with children in mind. The latest in these is The Plans I Have for You Holy Bible. Based on the children’s book, The Plans I Have For You by author Amy Parker, this is a pretty cool variation. Parker’s storybook inspires … Read more

I’m an avid reader of self-help books. It’s less that I’m concerned about improving myself than that I’m always so interested in how others approach becoming closer to what they want to be.

I confess. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I saw the title, When Jesus Was a Green-Eyed Brunette. But, I can say, whatever I expected, it wasn’t this.

Ian, CEO, North Pole, by Eric Dana Hansen is a thoroughly charming and surprisingly educational read. I snapped up the opportunity to read this book, expecting a seasonal-feel good, something that I hoped I could recommend to parents as a good, holiday themed family-reading or independent-reading title, or maybe even something to encourage reluctant readers … Read more
