The Rainbow Egg by Linda Hendricks, M.D. ~ #review

Hope is a chicken who happens upon an egg. Looking for a place to help raise it, a guardian red bird leads her to a chicken house full of chicken families. 

There she finds challenges and fear ultimately leading to the most precious gift she could ever hope for. 

The Rainbow Egg  is a beautifully illustrated, delightful fresh look at adoption as a loving gift.

Review :
I believe that for young children, and even some older ones too, it is usually much easier to explain difficult things in life

Mom Rings in the New 2014 with a To Do Task List - What is your 2014 going to bring?

Ok it is the very first day of a brand New Year - and what am I doing?  Searching the internet to help me decide what my "New Year's Resolutions" will be and how I can actually achieve them.  After finding that I have been online for nearly 3 hours, I've finally come to the realization that making "resolutions" is the wrong way for me to start my New Year (plus getting off the computer might be a good place to start as well - lol)

So, starting now, I am working on a more reasonable "New Year's Task List" that I will check off as I accomplish each little Step of Each Task - making smaller goals that are easier to achieve and give a sense of accomplishment and purpose to start out this 2014!

Task #1 - Take Care of My Needs

As a Stay At Home Mom in a One income Family - I usually ignore my personal wants and sometimes even my needs in order to take care of

Preserve your child's special artwork with a custom created Friend from Budsies! Review & Giveaway

What do you do with all those fantastic pictures your little ones make - you know the ones I mean.  They draw and color something special just for Mom or Dad or Grandma, then it gets hung on the fridge for a while.  Until the next drawing is put up in it's place.  Then they bring home more and more from school, church, and just everyday art work.  Which ones do you keep? Which go on the fridge and which end up in a box in the basement or attic?

What do you think is a fun way to preserve some of your child's favorite pictures?
What if you could turn a favorite photo into a special friend for you child.  Something cuddly created by your child for your child!  It can be animals, people or even objects like flowers, cars or whatever their imagination creates!

Spirituality for Kids ~ a free online program that encourages children to make a difference in the world around them! Review on Mom Loves 2 Read

Spirituality For Kids is a free online program that you and your child can do together. Don’t wait another minute!

Spirituality for Kids is back with an entertaining, self-guided program that encourages children to reflect on their actions, to see challenges as opportunities, to develop self-worth, and to activate the desire to make a difference in the world around them. 

To make sure the child is grasping the concepts, there are five “checkpoints” throughout the lessons. Each “checkpoint” is an activity that will help the parent measure their child’s understanding of the spiritual concepts covered along the way. If you notice your child is having a challenging time understanding a concept, revisit a video lesson more than once and discuss a concept together several times.

Spirituality for Kids is a completely self-paced and flexible program based upon your child’s needs. You can determine the amount of time needed for each lesson, be that a single day or stretched out over a longer period of time.
