Happy Times Magazine - I'm Giving Subscriptions Away!

One thing we do as grandparents is look for resources we can use to pass faith to the children we love. Concordia Publishing House recently emailed me a couple of their Happy Times Magazine which is designed as a tool for parents/grandparents to use to pass faith to preschool age children. Today I'm happy to let you know about this resource which you could use with your grandchildren - and announce a giveaway as well!

Happy Times
Published by - Concordia Publishing House
Ages - Preschool

Favorite Features -
  • Lots of color - it will capture the attention of little ones
  • Filled with stories and activities - it is fun for children to work through with their parents/grandparents
  • Parent Talk - guided conversation for parents and grandparents to help connect content to pass on faith
Concordia says; "Packed full of hands-on activities, crafts, and stories that encourage a child’s faith, Happy Times is full of tell me-about-Jesus moments for you to share with your child. Happy Times is created for preschoolers and the adults in their lives. Each bimonthly issue is filled with hands-on activities, crafts, stories and more which encourage a child's faith growth. Children will look forward to activities they can do independently along with projects which need grown up's help. This fun magazine is a wonderful resource to help adults talk to children about Jesus and to guide families in faith growth at home and church. Kids love getting mail, so send them some Happy Times! Only $16.50 for a one-year subscription (6 issues).

You will find the information you need about Happy Times at this link, along with another link you may follow to see a sample issue. And, as I mentioned, Concordia is making five subscriptions available for me to give away (USA only) on September 28, 2016. So, if you live in the USA, are over the age of 18 and would like to win a year subscription, please comment below to share how many preschool-age grandchildren/children you have who would enjoy Happy Times Magazine - two of my grandsons are preschoolers.

In addition, you will receive additional entries if you have followed on Google+, Google Friend Connect, followed by liking on facebook with the tab at this link (not just liking the post) and/or have followed grandma's cookie jar by email. For each of these which you have done you will receive one entry. In addition, if you "share" this post, you'll receive an additional entry (please let me know if you share). This will help me be able to draw names from among people who would like to win a subscription to Happy Times Magazine and it gives you several ways to enter the give-away!


  1. I have 3 preschool grands that I would share this magazine with!

  2. I have one granddaughter and several kids in my children's ministry who could benefit from this magazine. Thanks for the chance to see it.

  3. My children's Sunday school calss and Wednesday night group would really enjoy. What a great give away to offer. cmc
