Glad to have you visit my little corner of the blog world! I'm a minister's wife and stay-at-home mommy.
Here you will find LOTS of book reviews, because I LOVE to read. You'll also get a little peak into our family life as we seek to raise the three gifts from the Lord with which we have been richly blessed and a little of the things I'm learning as I daily surrender to the Lord in complete trust. This life isn't always easy, but it is an adventure like no other. At the end of each day, I rest in the faithfulness of Almighty God.
Praying you are blessed by your visit with me!

The only sure thing you can count on when it comes to you kids is that God has got them. As parents, we strategize and agonize. We wish for secret formulas and surefire methods. But somewhere along the way, we discover that what our kids need most is for God to do in their lives what only he can do. The One Year Praying through the Bible for Your Kids is designed to provide you with a daily dose of parenting perspective and hope. Join trusted author Nancy Guthrie as she takes you through The On Year Bible reading plan, helping you to mine each day's passages to discover how the Scriptures speak into the triumphs and turbulence of parenting as well as provide fresh ways to pray for each of your children. Day by day you'll find yourself worrying less and praying more as your dreams and desires for your kids are increasingly shaped by the Scriptures rather than the culture around you. Let go of fear, and expect God to work as you pray through the Bible for your kids. My Thoughts:
I have been somewhat discouraged by much of the parenting resources that are "out there". Even some "Christian" resources have been more geared toward a formula or steps to this or that kind of approach. How refreshing to come by this guide by trusted teacher Nancy Guthrie! Guthrie guides parents through the entirety of the Scriptures with sound biblical insights and teaching. Each day gives you the Scripture passages for that day that will take you through a reading of the entire 66 books of Scripture in one year, Christ-centered thoughts from Nancy and a prayer to get you moving in the direction of applying Scriptural insight to your prayers for your kids. In her brief commentary each day, Nancy teaches and shares background on the Scriptures to help users of this resource focus on Christ and how to apply His truth to our dreams for our kids, trading hope for worry.
Rather than another parenting book, why not turn to the Bible...the greatest parenting guide ever given!
