In writing “Manners & Tips for Caring Kids” Ramona Wood created the book she needed as a child—and searched for as a parent. Now she brushes up on her manners alongside her grandchildren as she reads this book with them.

It’s not just about manners. It’s the meaning behind the manners!

It’s about thinking…instead of just acting

This book offers a quick introduction to the Fruit of the Spirit. The 32 pages provide practical ways for kids to improve their manners and includes various other bible verses that build upon a particular attribute. Easy to read and understand text. The pages are colorful and not overly “fruity”. Author Ramona Wood created simple illustrations that add in visual understanding and interest. A nicely done book!

This book is a 2019 bronze medal Illumination winner in the education category. Illumination book awards are designed to honor and bring increased recognition to the year’s best new titles written and published with a Christian worldview.

Hand In Hand

Genre: Kids Music
Award-winning children’s recording artist Suzi Shelton released her fourth family album this past spring which is filled with upbeat, inspiring and powerful songs about believing in yourself as well as more whimsical songs about ladybugs and raindrops, and has proudly taken home a 2018 NAPPA Award as well as a 2018 Parents’ Choice Foundation Recommended Award! 

Hand in Hand

I highly recommend Suzi Shelton’s music. She is a terrific singer & songwriter.
I am extremely selective on what I listen to, and this is a treasured find. Her music is fun for kids without being kiddy.  The lyrics are easy-to-understand; listeners can catch every word making so that each song is singable. There’s a variety of instruments and the overall effect is positive and happy♬

A little about our beginning

Crisp air, fresh sea breeze, and delicious Mediterranean food were the first stop on my journey. We grew up with simple, durable, handmade clothes that were easy to slip into. I’m forever grateful for my childhood on the sea and want to provide the same for my kids.

Henley & Joggers

100% organic cotton

joggers - greece blue

Both the top and bottom are a size 4 which is the largest size available. Hopefully, Malu Organic will continue expanding their line and offer more sizes. Greece blue is a lovely shade. While a henley shirt and jogger sweat pants are both typical styles, the quality of fabric and the workmanship is first-rate. Love soft clothes.

Designed Signs

Custom Kid’s Art Display is one of many hand crafted personalized gifts from Designed Signs in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Look What I Made” is a sentiment that sums up the boundless creativity enjoyed by children. This artwork display is a wonderful addition to any playroom or kitchen to show off their latest masterpieces.

Love this art display to show my little one’s efforts. It is so important to show them that their creations are valued. And it’s enjoyable to see how much they like to look at their own work 🙂

The Low-Pressure Guide to Parenting Your Preschooler is brilliantly written to liberate parents from the expectations of having to be super-parents. It relieves the pressure to follow long lists of rules, to be perfect, and to be enslaved by the idea that, “If you don’t do this, your kids will turn out terribly.” This book shows parents that it’s really not their job to make sure their child turns out “right.” Instead, the author encourages parents to learn the much simpler and more rewarding role God has for them

paperback, 224 pages, Focus on the Family

Available October 1, 2016

The four principles in this book are excellent and just what I needed to read. As a parent -starting again/retirement on hold for some time -I found this book very helpful and would recommend it for reducing stress and making parenting much simpler and more rewarding. Would have loved to have read this years ago.

Tyndale House Publishers provided an advanced reader copy of The Low-Pressure Guide To Parenting Your Preschooler in return for this review. All opinions are entirely my own. No other compensation was received.
