My recommendations this week:
I’ve read The Hiding Place before, yet I couldn’t even make it through the first page without covering it with notes and highlights!
It’s filled with amazing truths and insights still so applicable to our modern-day challenges — in parenting, homeschooling, and just life.
Add Popular Mechanics for Kids to our “awesome FREE Amazon Prime shows” we recently discovered! I’d recommend these for ages 8 and up, as some do mention sensitive topics from history.
Since I despise clothes shopping, I used to get anxious when a formal occasion meant that I needed a new outfit. Monthly deliveries from Stitch Fix have definitely helped.
When I packed for the Prayer Breakfast in DC last week it was such a relief to just reach in the closet for the one dress and skirt I’ve purchased from them over the past year!
Featured sponsors this week:
