Praises of a Wife and Mommy was created for mom's like me. I like to share secrets, parenting advice, deals, the many arts and crafts that we do at our at home preschool, and most importantly share my faith. My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower. Praises of a Wife and Mommy started small but is cotinuing to grow. I love to review products and hold giveaways.

Beloved VeggieTales Characters Enrich Young Readers with Their Own Spin on Three Classics in a New Collection
Junior Asparagus, Laura Carrot, and many other VeggieTales characters return with three popular adventure-filled stories by Cindy Kenney packed into one colorful new book, VEGGIETOWN VOYAGE (Zonderkidz; $7.99; February 2013).
With an added emphasis on strong Christian values, the stories recall a classic television show (Lost in Space) and two iconic movies, (Cool Hand Luke and Ben-Hur), with each told in child-friendly text.
I adore finding books that are filled with valuable lessons and Biblical teachings. Veggietales does a great job of delivering that in their story books.
These three stories include wonderful artwork and have a lot of humor for children and adults alike. :)
The first story teaches a lesson about never being lost because God is always with us! What a great lesson for kids to learn and to help them in any situation to overcome fear and anxiety.
The second story truly is inspiring! The story takes you from watching Junior working because he wants to be rich to working to be a blessing. AWESOME because we truly will have fortune in heaven by blessing other here on earth.
The last story focuses on patience, something that is typically hard for most children, okay most people! It may be hard to exercise patience but God truly will gift us patience when we need it! My five year old was able to understand these stories and enjoy them but they were a bit too long for my near 2 year old. I suggest the appropriate age to be 4-10 year old's.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
