My Review
David C. Cook, the author, has written several other devotional books that are available to help you or your family draw closer to God.  This set is my first one of David C. Cook that we are enjoying.  
The Trio includes:  Knowing God the Father, Knowing Jesus, and Knowing the Holy Spirit. 
It seems natural that any Christian mom or dad would want their children to know God the Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!    
These devotions feature simplified doctrine with easy-to-understand language so children will be engaged and able to follow along. The theological depth of these devotions will strengthen parents’ faith as well, providing a growing experience for children and parents together. Each devotion features a section specifically for growing children’s faith, including a topic or question to start a conversation about spiritual matters, and a simple closing prayer. With illustrations highlighting key concepts, parents…

Tending to Your Child’s Mental Health

There’s no doubt you’re a good parent. You’re there for your child when he or she needs you; you feed them, you get them to school on time and make sure they do their homework. You do all the right things, and everything seems okay with your little one — you never know what is really going on inside their heads, though, and you never know how okay they actually are. For this reason, you have to resolve to tend to your child’s mental health just as much as you tend to their physical health. For advice on how to do this, make sure to read on.


Never make them suffer because of your problems



Children find it hard to understand and process adult problems. If you and your child’s other parent argue constantly, for instance, no matter how insignificant these little bickers may be, your child is likely to become extremely worried that something is seriously wrong between the two of you. When they worry in this way, they are likely to blame themselves for whatever is happening, and that is never…

Being a Parent with Debt: Steps to Take to Move Forward

Dealing with unsurmountable debt as a parent can feel like you have taken on another child’s worth of responsibility that you don’t want. Debt can certainly grow, but it will never be rewarding like parenthood is. Avoiding your debt or even just drowning in it won’t help you, either. You need to deal with your debts head on so that you and your entire family can finally move forward. It doesn’t matter if you cannot afford to give your child piano lessons. It doesn’t matter if some things have to change. If you don’t make these changes, worse is yet to come. That is why you need to take these steps so that you can finally move forward away from your debt for the betterment of your whole family:

Settle Your Debt

Repayments are a normal part of adulthood. From student loans to mortgage repayments, debt is part of our everyday lives. What isn’t, however, is missing repayments to the point where your debt has become a huge monster that is threatening to ruin your life. Running will only ma…

Baseball game

I took the kids to a ball game a few nights ago.   It was on our summer bucket list and I was blessed with three free tickets.  Yay. 
We all know that, “there’s no crying in baseball!”   Well,that all changed when they shared a very touching story of a little boy who was hit by a semi.  He had a long road of recovery and he was able to run the bases.  It hit me in all the feels category.  What a strong little boy.  Pretty sure my kids were thinking I was crazy as I kept wiping my eyes.  I just can’t imagine the struggle that familybwrnt through and now praise God a great testimony of overcoming it all.  God is so good.
