The Investigator’s Holy Bible

Normally, I’m not a fan of making learning or study fun for kids. Don’t get me wrong – I’m not against fun. It just seems to me that something either is fun, or isn’t. When we start trying too hard to make something be something it isn’t, we should take another look. In general, this approach has … Read more

Falling Free

This post contains affiliate links. I’ve written before about my appreciation of heartfelt, brutally honest books about living a life well when it’s something that was never expected. When I saw Falling Free, and reading that it was in a similar vein, I picked it up.

The Beginner’s Bible: Timeless Children’s Stories

Reading aloud – particularly before bedtime – is a treasured family practice in our home.

I suppose, in the back of my mind, I expected a book about looking to serve Christ through serving others, no matter what they might look like. … Read more

Open Hearts and Minds with Bible Journaling

Later, I got really fancy and started using a red pen … Read more

Author Glenys Nellist’s series of Love Letters from God books is much loved, and for good reason. Ms. Nellist has a remarkable way of taking scripture and turning it around to show the meaning, providence, and love that God has for each and every one of us. And she does so in a way that … Read more
