growing up social by gary chapmanGrowing Up Social: Raising Relational Kids in a Screen-Driven World
by Gary Chapman and Arlene Pellicane

I love this quote by author Gary Chapman in this book: “The only thing a child is really entitled to is his parents love. Not to keep up with the Joneses. Not a brand-new bike or iPad. Just love. If a child has unconditional love, he has the greatest asset in the world. If we as parents can realize it’s love our children need most, and not things, we will stop trying to buy our children’s happiness with possession.”

grace the power to change book review

Grace, the Power to Change
by Dr. James Richards

Before reading this book, I understood that I was saved by God’s Grace, but I had NO IDEA that God wanted me to use His Grace every day, in every day situations. The book gives numerous examples of the importance of Grace, and how to implement the ideas in our lives. It would also be an invaluable resource for moms to teach their children about God’s grace vs. their own ability.
