Learn, Absorb & Praise™ Classic Collection

I was recently given the opportunity to share my thoughts upon and spread the news on a new set of  Christ centered books written specifically for children by Graham Blanchard & Callie Grant.

The Learn, Absorb & Praise™ Classic Collection has three titles which are Knowing My God: Jesus Shows Me, All of Me That You Can’t See, and Mud Puddle Hunting Day. Each of the books each have a specific purpose and come from certain lines that in different ways nurtures and has potential to grow the spiritual development of a child. This particular set is recommended for Ages 0-7 years old. My son age 4 and my daughter age 6 had benefited much from each! My aim is to have thought provoking books and those that point toward growing deeper in Christ in my home and this set certainly fits that target.

He makes everything more bearable as I continue to remain faithful in his loving guidance for my life.
