Scripture memory is very important in our family. I’m always looking for new ways to hide God’s Word in the hearts of my children, and I am really excited to introduce a new resource we received from Tommy Nelson this month. I Can Learn the Bible: The Joshua Code for Kids by Holly Hawkins Shivers is an engaging devotional and a great tool for teaching scripture memorization for children ages 4-8. Read more »
Have you ever considered adoption? We are honored to have a guest post today from a dear friend, Diane Dailey, who is in the midst of a journey of a lifetime. Her family is adopting from China. We’re so glad she’s sharing their story with you!
The other day I came across the statistic that more than 30% of US families are interested in or feel called to adoption, but only 3% of family’s will actually go on to adopt. I think there was a point when left to our own plans, we were at risk of falling into the 27%, however, it is amazing the way that God can orchestrate just the right set of circumstances to get you right where he wants you to be. For me, that means we are now deep into the process to adopt a little girl from China. We’ve completed our home-study and are hoping to have all our paperwork finalized to go to China by January; we’re told that we can expect to be traveling to China to get our little girl, 3-6 months from when our paperwork is received!

This Thanksgiving my cup is full, my soul is overflowing with God’s mercies, but I must admit, my heart is heavy. Over the past year, I’ve been walking with and praying for a dear friend of mine. If you are a regular to Sisters Raising Sisters, you’ll know her, Jacque Gerlach from Whole Family Strong. Read more »
Earth Angel is 4 years old and is just getting to that magical point where she can read well enough that it is fun. She wants to read everything in sight! So when I showed her Devotions For Beginning Readers from Tommy Nelson, her eyes lit up with excitement.
We have added it into our weekly reading work in our homeschool. The book is recommended for ages 4-8. While the skill level is still definitely above where she is normally reading, she enjoys the challenge and the feeling of accomplishment when she can read such big words (with just a little help from momma).

Who among us doesn’t want to lead a life worth emulating?
You really do not have to hang around this blog long to hear about our goal of raising our daughters to be Empowered Traditionalists. (What is that, you say? Find out here.) So it should come as no surprise to you how excited we are to be reviewing (and giving away) Tommy Nelson’s new book, Brave Girls Bible Stories.
It’s here, the 2014 Young Living Essential Oils Holiday Catalog, and you are not going to want to miss it!

If you love essential oils, or even if you have not tried them yet, this catalog has something for just about everyone on your list. Read more »
I love the ministry of Lysa TerKeurst. I’ve done her Bible studies before and listened to her on the Proverbs 31 Ministries radio programs often, but until recently, I never knew she had written a children’s book. It Will Be Okay certainly lived up to my high expectations of her work. The book is about trusting God through fear and change, and is perfect for children ages 4-8. Read more »
