Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald

Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew

Making Your House Fun While Learning!

I stumbled on a web post the other day that offered a free e-book in return for a review on my blog. Who could resist that offer especially when the books' title is, "Finding Educational Activities in the Most Unexpected Places." I'm in love! In a time where there is an unending amount of toy options for your child, complete with the latest and greatest electronic ones that are fun but don't really encourage a child's creativity and pretend play, this book hits the spot! The table of contents alone gets me excited! The simplicity is marvelous, sparks parental creativity, and reminds the reader that everyday household items can provide hours of fun and learning at little to no cost! Seriously, who knew there could be so much fun in cotton balls, laundry, cookie cutters, egg cartons, paper plates, boxes, balloons.... and the list goes on to include about 25 sections in total with an appendix on how to dye pasta and rice.

The author, Angie Kauffman, has a BA in Education, MA in Special Education, is a homeschool mom, and is an in-home therapist for children with developmental delays and disabilities. She knows kids and how to make learning fun!

I HIGHLY suggest this book! There are so many activities in here that I had never considered before and others that I knew were fun but had completely forgotten them. I get no added compensation for this review other than the book, but seriously, this is a book I will treasure forever and I want you to have one too!
