There’s something I need to talk with you about tonight dear readers – something I’ve been meaning to write about since the beginning of October. You see, October is National Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. Statistically speaking, 1 in 3 students say that they have been bullied at school. I was one of those students. My children have been those students, and sadly, my sons have been the bully as well.

An Amish Christmas Gift: Three Amish Novellas is written by three authors who all have written series and who work at another job besides. They not only find time to write but they do it well. This book told three separate stories that were all heart warming and simply a joy to read. Read my entire review of An Amish Christmas Gift here.

In today’s society, helping our teenage girls navigate real issues and concerns is of utmost importance to most parents. The NIV Bible for Teen Girls, designed specifically for girls ages 13 to 18, is for real teenage girls with real lives. Packed with daily readings, highlighted promises of God, challenging insights, smart advice, and open discussion about the realities of life, this Bible is designed to help teen girls grow in faith, hope, and love. The NIV Bible for Teen Girls is as sincere about your walk with God as you are, helping you discover his will for all areas of your life, including relating to your family, dealing with friends, work, sports, guys, and so much more.
Our family fell in love with Duck Dynasty when it first aired, and we have continued to fall in love with each of the family members of the Robertson family. So we are truly honored to be able to tell our readers about Korie Robertson’s new book STRONG and KIND: And Other Important Character Traits Your Child Needs to Succeed.
As the mother of five, Korie totally gets that raising children is a full-time, difficult job, on your best day. If there is one universal message; however, that all parents want their children to know it is that we want them to always know “the love that we have for them is without condition, without question, overflowing, and never ending; and that they understand and realize that God loves them even more.” As Korie states in her book, “It seems impossible, but it’s true.”
Have you ever wanted to just scream in frustration when it comes to teens and time management? With an ADHD child, it can be even more frustrating. Leslie Josel's new book, "What's the Deal with Teens and Time Management" takes you through the process step-by-step! Check out our review!
As Americans, we believe that our children have a right to be born in a clean environment, to a good education, a good home to keep them warm, and a childhood free from troubles and worries. I know that when my children were born, the most important thing to me was to make sure that they were always fed, warm, and comfortable and had all of the comforts of home that I could give to them. Unfortunately, that is not the case for many children in other countries.
Parenting is a tough job – any parent will tell you that. There are a few of us, even with multiple kids, who flounder and wonder if we’re doing this whole parenting thing right at all when what worked with the older kids no longer works with a younger sibling.
Some parenting books make me feel more guilty than empowered. Turansky and Miller offer practical insight to help parents find attainable ways to motivate their kids with the big picture in mind and not just the crisis at hand. Great blend of challenging us but making spiritual parenting doable.

Update 10/5/2016: October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. While this post was written in 2014, it is still a viable post that deserves your attention. You see, one of the men from this true story, “Jim,” has decided to run for mayor for the City of Richmond, Virginia. We cannot allow an abuser to take over the day-to-day operations of our city. I am asking each of you who live in the #RVA to read this book, share it with your friends, and vote #NoAbuserForMayor during the upcoming election.
