Bring some cozy charm to your child’s room and a touch of whimsy to story time, with this beautiful keepsake book of characters from the Bible. This accessible collection includes both familiar and lesser-known figures like Noah, Joseph, Esther, John the Baptist, Miriam, and many more. Each story is told in a short, easy-to-understand passage and accompanied by a photograph of a handcrafted doll, specially made to capture both the character and themes of the story.

Faithful Friends is:Full of biographies of both men and women from the Old and New Testaments
Great for independent readers or as a read-aloud for families
Beautifully packaged with a classic cloth spine and matte finish for a timeless look
The perfect gift for baptism, birthdays, First Communion, Easter, or Christmas
Designed for children ages 4–10, but wonderful for anyone young or young at heart!



Expert crafter Marcy Kelleher sells heirloom dolls of saints, literary figures, and Bible characters in her online shop, Marzipantz which has a distinct cottage core, handcrafted style. Her husband, teacher Michael Kelleher, wrote these biographies and together they hope this book brings joy to your life as you share these stories with the children in your life.


My Review:
Wow, the photos of the hand made dolls is what grabbed my attention immediately.   I paged through just to look at each character that was created.   The fact that the images in this book are all photos of real hand made dolls makes it very special.   I found myself looking to see if they would have the Bible Characters for sale because how fun as a kid to get a new doll each time you read about someone new from the book.   



I like this devotional as it is different because it is not focused on the Bible stories so much but rather the individual person and what they did for the Kingdom.  The author did a nice job of helping the reader see the person grow in their faith.   They still point to Jesus and scripture is at the top of each page.  

Go and pick up "Faithful Friends" today and enjoy some reading with your family.   Make it routine and read every day!

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most
