I was drawn to the title of this book- Women Who Move Mountains: praying with confidence boldness and grace. Who doesn’t want to pray with more confidence and boldness? I know prayer is a key in my success as a wife and mother, so I am always glad for encouragement in that area.
We’ve been studying the Civil War lately. Here are some of the resources we’ve used. My boys are ages nine to sixteen so the resources span a wide age range. War is obviously a violent time in history and the Civil War especially so. The casualties caused by the Civil War easily outrank any other war that America has been part of.
My daughter loves to be read to. It’s one of her favorite things to do. That’s why I was delighted to come across the new children’s book, Your Magnificent Chooser by John Ortberg.
Your Magnificent Chooser is a beautiful book with delightful illustrations and rhyming text (it reminds me of Dr. Seuss).
My son recently published his first book. The book is about chess. And not just chess in general, but on one single opening. We’ve had some people ask why he chose to write a book on one specific chess opening. I think he explains it really well in his introduction so if you want to know, just check out his introduction. We learned some things along the way that I thought I’d share with you today.
Parenting is hard. I don’t think anyone who as been a parent for any amount of time would disagree. There aren’t always easy answers for the problems we face. Again and again, we need to ask God how to best face the challenges before us. Never is this more true, though, than when one is raising a child who is different.
