I have so much I want to share in this little space.

So many memories and the things my kids are teaching me (Yes, they are among my best teachers!) and how God is ever faithful to young (and not-so-young) mothers. I'm in that place where all bloggers go from time to time when they feel a tug to step away from the computer for a season. That's where I've been but I'm feeling that itch to get back, again.

*If you've been around here a while, you know this is a neverending cycle with me. This desire to write and share and stay-up-late tapping on the keys until one day, I realize I'm all tapped out and just need to shush it for a while. My husband always says, "Sometimes you just need to put down the microphone." There's a lot of freedom in that. For sure.

Today, I'm writing over at FaithGateway with 3 Tips For Meaningful Family Devotions (especially with small children).


"One of my favorite books to use for our time together as a family is Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing by Sally Lloyd-Jones.

My children absolutely love this book.

Each entry contains short, simple, easy-to-understand truths about how much God loves us. The illustrations are captivating and the writing is so deeply profound that my husband and I walk away challenged and encouraged by words written in language that my three-year old can understand. If you love The Jesus Storybook Bible, you will love what Sally Lloyd-Jones and Jago have created in Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing."

Here is a short video:

That Never Stopping, Never Giving up, Unbreaking, Always and Forever Love.

This is what I want my littles to know!

Because I love it so much and LOVE sharing with y'all the things we use and love around here, I'm giving away TEN copies of Thoughts To Make Your Heart Sing.

  1. Looks like a great book. I love the illustrations.
    My favorite children's book is Bear Snores On by Karma Wilson. It feels like I have read it a million time but It always make me smile. Part of the fun is that it rhymes…so it never get old.

  2. YAY! Sorry I missed this post! :) Glad you knew where to find me! <3
