"God Made All Of Me; A Book To Help Children Protect Their Bodies" BookReview

As a mom of three young kids, I often feel like I have this parenting thing down. At least, the baby part.  I mean, I've done it three times now. But as my oldest grows, I realize more and more that there are going to be some interesting challenges ahead.  One of those challenges is broaching the subject of child abuse.  We owe it to our kids to teach them that there are certain things that other people aren't allowed to do to them - like touch certain parts of their body.  Its awkward even writing that sentence, so you can imagine how awkward it is to talk about.  But it needs to be discussed.  And it needs to be handled appropriately.  Thankfully, the folks at GRACE (Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment) and New Growth Press have provided a book to help us parents out!

"The Plans I Have For You" Book Review

I'm always on the lookout for children's books with great biblical lessons.  We have tons of books about God's love for us. (And I don't believe you can have too many of those!)  And we've got lots of books about God's awesomeness.  (Again, you can't have too many!)  But I think this is our first book about God's plans for us - and I'm so glad we found it!
