Little Pilgrim’s Progress Review

Even though I have never read the original Pilgrim’s Progress, I knew I wanted a family version that I could share with my kids in the future. I think Little Pilgrim’s Progress: From John Bunyan’s Classicis the perfect fit for that.

Even though I may have had a deeper meaning of this book had I read the original, I still loved the retelling of this story. It is a story that can be retold many times throughout your children’s lives, and I am positive they will get something new each time. It is full of Christian allegory that is fun to talk about with older kids, and all kids will love the adventure of the story.

The story is just captivating for young kids and adults alike. I especially love the shorter chapters that make it easy for nighttime reading.

Beyond Bath Time Review

I was a little surprised at how short Beyond Bath Time: Embracing Motherhood as a Sacred Role (True Woman)
was when it arrived, but don’t let the size fool you, it packs a powerful message.

It was encouraging to read. I always need reminders that my staying home is not just about “babysitting”, but that I am actually making a difference for my children’s souls.

The only thing that I didn’t care for in the book was the addressing to people who don have kids. It’s not that I disagreed with it, but I know if I didn’t have a child, I probably wouldn’t pick up the book to begin with.

I definitely recommend this book to all moms, especially new moms. This shift in motherhood has happened and I truly believe the social media and Pinterest are too blame. Some how many of us moms have gotten into our heads that we have to be perfect. I know I struggle with it daily, so I am thankful for this book.

Beyond Bath Time: Embracing Motherhood as a Sacred Role (True Woman)is sure to hit a sensitive nerve with many moms, but don’t let that stop you from hearing the message. Ask the Lord what He wants you to take away from the book. I know for myself, there were several things talked about in the book that I had to address in my own life, although it was hard. Truth can be hard to hear, but how much better are lives are when we align them to God’s will and truth!

101 Color & Sing Bible Stories Review

I was super excited to receive 101 Color & Sing Bible Stories
. My daughter is almost two right now, so this book was a lot of fun for her to look through. I really love this book because it implements coloring pages, the Bible story, and songs. It is perfect for Sunday school classes, Christian schools, and even parents.

My little one is really into coloring right now, so it has been a lot of fun to read her the Bible story while she is coloring. She has also been enjoying the songs that come with it.

I think this would also make a great gift for any little one 5. 101 Color & Sing Bible Stories
is beautifully illustrated and comes with a nice puffy hardcover. There are just so many Christian kid products out there, but most of them are just junk. I am happy to say that 101 Color & Sing Bible Stories is not junk.

Parenting With Scripture: Must-Have Resource for Christian Parents

As a Christian parent, I know that the Bible is the best resource for training and disciplining my child. However, in moments of discipline, sometimes it is hard to think of the right verse to say – if not the right words period. This is what I love about the book, Parenting with Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments. This book is a must-have for all parents – actually all of us, parents or not!

Ginger Plowman has a similar chart and speaks of how important it is to correct bad behaviors with Scripture. She explains in her book, Don’t Make Me Count to Three!, that we can’t just “put off” the bad or sinful in our children. We need to “put on” Biblical wisdom too. How true is this in our own lives?! We can’t just say, “I need to stop gossiping” and try to stop gossiping, but we need to dwell on God’s truth about how wicked the tongue is and how damaging gossip is.

This is why Parenting with Scripture is so powerful! Keep it at arm’s reach throughout the day. If siblings are fighting or if one of your children are dealing with jealousy, the book has the answers for you. The book points you to the best answers there are – the Words of the Bible.

I like how this book also offers some quick discussion points and questions that we can ask our children. The point of this book is to get at the heart. What good is a child that obey and acts perfectly on the outside but sins in his heart? Yes, that child is easy to deal with, but his salvation and love for God is questionable. This book will help you train and discipline your child’s heart, while helping him or her to develop a love for Scripture and God.

Pups of the Spirit – A Cute Way to Teach Your Toddlers the Fruit of the Spirit

I picked out Pups of the Spiritto review because my almost two-year old is obsessed with all things dogs. I love the idea that this book taught the fruits of the Spirit in a fun and cute way.

The book is adorable, and I loved all of the illustrations. I think this book is definitely a good one for ages 2-3, not the recommended ages of 4-8. It is a good introduction to the fruits of the Spirit for toddler age, but I think it is too spiritually immature for kindergarteners and up. I think kids that are five and older need a stronger Biblical foundation to learn from, and while I think the rhymes are cute in the book, I feel that they will not reach the hearts of kids 5-8.

That being said, my 20-month old enjoyed reading through the book and looking at the dogs and cats. I know that in about 6-7 months I will be able to use this book for further discussion to train her heart.

I also love that the dust jacket is a poster. I get very frustrated with dust jackets on kids books because they never stay in place, but the idea that the dust jacket is a poster is quite useful.

This bright book would make a fun gift for a little one in your life, especially if they love dogs.
