Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies-A Family Adventure You Won’t Forget!

Last month we took our first family vacation ever. Sure, we’ve visited family that lives far away before, but we’ve never been able to just take a week and go somewhere super fun and do nothing but have a blast. We chose to visit Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, TN. There were so many things to […]

A God for All Seasons{Devotional Review and Giveaway}

Finding my own personal quiet time with the Lord is a constant struggle. With children always under foot, a toddler that wakes the moment I attempt to rise from the bed, and days that are so busy with daily tasks, homeschooling, keeping up with my two businesses, and other miscellaneous things, I often find myself […]

A Happy, Happy, Happy Devotional for Children

Do you have a little one that loves construction vehicles? At some point, many children, especially little boys, become fascinated with the big, loud machines. Can you blame them?

In This House We Giggle

I love to read parenting books, but I generally take them with a grain of salt, picking and choosing the bits and pieces that are applicable to my life and parenting style. Every once in awhile, I come across one that makes me stop in my tracks and soak up every word. When a book […]

A Bible for Toddlers{A Review}

It’s no secret that I really love children’s bibles. I think it’s a wonderful thing to surround our children with the Word of the Lord. No matter the age, they can begin to absorb the truths that Scripture teaches. The Adventure Bible for Toddlers is the newest edition to our collection and is quickly becoming […]
