My daughter is growing up and her taste in apparel and accessories is changing. She prefers to pick out her own clothes and things where once I had just done it for her. She’s growing up and she’s begun to express herself more. As a bittersweet good-bye to childhood, I’m supporting her in this but still making sure she’s making modest faith-based picks and appropriate choices following the rules that my family has set in place.

I know many of us can relate to her written thoughts and feelings alive in song during this time of year.
I’ve seen people create beautiful works of art in their Bibles. Pinterest and Instagram are full of post after post of Bible journaling pictures. One could spend a good amount of time browsing such masterpieces. Being an artist myself, I felt inspired to do my own. I feel this new fad is a wonderful way to spotlight and make stories and verses that speak to me come to life in a way that means something to me. However, I wasn’t exactly sure what types of pens, pencils, or other mediums and embellishments to use to get started.
Where Jesus Slept by Norma Lewis will no doubt be a book I reach to read to my children every Christmas Season. I adore the way it is written which starts with one element/person/animal, adds something else, goes backward, and adds something new again on the next page. The cycle the words go in make this book a fun and excellent participatory retelling for littles ones to enjoy. I imagine with multiple readings the story will eventually be memorized!
