Favorite Books for the Season

Christmas is such a special time of year! These are great books to sit and enjoy reading for the holiday. Some are Biblical, some not. And just in case you didn't know Max Lucado has written some great children's books. The first four I recommend for older kids starting at age 5, the next few are great preschool aged books, and the last two are great for little tots. 10 books for 10 days!
I recommend this book for ages 5 and up although my 3 1/2 year old does listen well to longer stories.

Great story for daddy's with little girls but mommy's can certainly read it as well. (had this one since I was a lad-y)

The velveteen rabbits journey started as a stocking stuffer

Recommended for older kids
The animations in this book are incredible
A great book from the same authors of the Beginner's Bible
Jr. reads this one fairly well. A lot of repetition and simple words.
The little Engineer loves this one!
This one brings big laughs because animals do not wear clothes

Along with the movie this books rocks!
The tiny Queen Bees' Favorite book, now if I could just get her to stop chewing the corners.

A Mother's Prayer

Lord bless my home and anyone who enters. Lead me daily so that I am always aware of You! Whether educating my kids, cooking or cleaning may my attitude always be that of a servant. Give me the words to guide my children to You, to know You, Your character and love You, Lord. Please teach to have patience and to always be learning. Lord mold me through each stage of life so I am continually growing and pursuing You no matter what. Lord I want to be a great mom and wife and I know that if I look only to You for help that I can accomplish this, the love for my family that I desire to show them. Lord I'm amazed by You and I love You. Amen.

Full of Life, Full of Love

"The spirited child-often called "difficult" or "strong-willed"--possesses traits we value in adults yet find challenging in children. Research shows that spirited kids are wired to be "more"-by temperament, they are more intense, sensitive, perceptive, persistent, and uncomfortable with change than the average child." It seems as though we have three, and they are very much like me. What does this mean? I need to be compassionate, consistent, confident, controlled, all with a gentle yet firm approach. Yes my plate is full.

Motherhood: A rigorous training ground

What an awesome responsibility mothers have to their children. Cultural stereotypes promote the idea that giving birth miraculously endows women with kindness, compassion, and goodness. But we all know better. Many of us can witness that we are made more aware of our weaknesses and impatience after becoming mothers than we were before. Godliness and generosity are not prerequisites of giving birth; they are characteristics that God hones and whittles into our character over time. Motherhood provides a rigorous training ground where we can display practice and model the disciplines of love, honesty, and compassion before our children. --Rebecca Laird
