The Most Important People You’ll Need When Moving

Deciding to move you and your family to a new home is both an exciting and potentially frightening part of life. You have so much to keep in mind during the process – selling your current house, hauling your belongings to the new place, maybe even finding new jobs for yourself and new schools for your children.

This type of big life change would be nearly impossible to do alone. Here is a list of the people you will need in order to make moving a smooth and successful experience.


Realtors
To sell your home with as little effort as possible, research local realtors to help you on the way. Realtors can advise you on how much you will be able to make from selling your property and will assist with the necessary documents. They can also show you prospective new homes and give you information about the areas you might want to move to. Without a realtor, you might find the process of moving to be much slower and more arduous.

Although it isn’t essential for you to seek their services, you wil…

Book Review- "The one and Only Wolfgang"

Image
From Instagram sensation Steve Greig and New York Times bestselling author Mary Rand Hess comes this humorous, heartwarming story about Greig’s real-life menagerie of senior rescue animals that affirms, in a family, everyone belongs. What makes a family? Is it sharing favorite foods, cuddling up for snuggle time, loving each other no matter what you look like in the morning? For Steve Greig’s oddly wonderful, real-life family of senior dogs, chickens, rabbits, and a pig named Bikini, family is all those things and then some! And this lovable bunch is now starring in their very first children’s book that showcases the importance of family. Meet the Wolfgang, a loveable bunch of animals belonging to Steve and each other. Greig looked for the most “unadoptable” animals and gave them a home … his home! Strange and unique, The One and Only Wolfgang will remind readers that no matter how old or how odd, everyone has a place where they belong. My Review Have you ever got a pet at a rescue she…

Book Review: "One Big Heart" A celebration of being more alike than different

Image
One Big Heart: A Celebration of Being More Alike than Different Linsey Davis, Emmy-winning correspondent for ABC News and author of The World Is Awake, brings us One Big Heart, A Celebration of Being More Alike than Different, a beautiful picture book that celebrates diversity as well as the things we all have in common. From skin, hair, and eyes in a multitude of colors to different personalities and interests, God gave us all special traits and characteristics that make us uniquely ourselves. And we all have things in common too: like sharing fun and laughter on the playground, a sense of curiosity, big feelings, and so many other things that show how we are all more alike than we are different. Combining lyrical rhymes and Lucy Fleming’s whimsical art, this inspiring story of inclusion and connection is the perfect read-aloud for kids ages 4 – 8.
