grandma's Valentine's Challenge - Show Love to the Ones We Love

Valentine's Day is just a few weeks away; so today I'm sharing my  "grandma's Valentine's Challenge" - let's do something to Show Love to the Ones We Love!

How might we do this? Consider the following . . . 

Take a Closer Look . . .

Have you ever heard of Eyelash Vipers, Cassowaries, Sunflower Sea Stars, Pygmy Elephants, Large Blue Butterflies, Mantled Guereza Colobus Monkeys, Golden Poison Dart Frogs, Sun Bears, Hawksbill Sea Turtles, Pangolins, Tufted Puffins, and Archerfish? Well, in my book,  Eyelash Vipers, Pygmy Elephants, Pangolins & More! you will find maps, fun facts, full-color photos, activities and quotes from scientists which will help the children you love - and you - discover how these animals help you have a confident faith!

Take a Closer Look at Blue Dragons, Red Pandas, Hoopoes & More!

The world - and entire universe for this matter - show logic, order, make sense and abide by rules/laws of science. How is it possible for such logic, order, sense, rules/laws of science to come from chaos? It is far easier for me to believe an intelligent God of order. logic and sense created everything to abide by rules/laws of science than for me to believe it all just happened from things which just happened to appear on their own out of nothing and exploded on their own leaving us today with an ordered, logical, scientific universe. My new books will help you see how we are able to believe in God with confidence and trust Him. Blue Dragons, Red Pandas, Hoopoes & More! is the first book in this series and is a multi-purpose book. While it makes an ideal gift for the children you love, it is also a curriculum resource which will equip grandparents and parents as they strive to hand down confident faith.

crafting with grandma - Homemade Harmonicas . . . Fun for Valentine's Day!

Valentine's Day is just a little over a month away, so I thought it would be fun to find some different ideas our grandchildren could try for a unique and memorable Valentines. Of course this meant I started by browsing through Pinterest . . . where I came upon an idea which fit what I was looking for . . . interesting, unique and fun for children to make!

Ask Your Church to Equip You

The past ten months have been difficult. Some of you may have caught covid. Some of you may have people you love who have battled with this disease. Some of you may have people you love who died due to covid. Your grandchildren have likely learned what it means to go to school "virtually". You, and the ones you love, may have experienced times of unemployment. Most of you, if not all of you, have likely not been to church very much in the past ten months - and this is very possibly true for the ones you love as well. If you have been able to return to church, Children's Ministry may not have restarted - or if it has, it has done so in an extremely limited way.
