I done did read these

Laura finally becomes a school teacher and gets married in this book! I love how she writes, I can see every word, every detail, feel what she is feeling. These are phenomenal books, you should read them!









Also a good book, with lots of eye opening statistics. The book goes a mile wide and an inch deep with most of the topics covered. Some of the chapters are: Trust the United Nations to protect us and our security. Make it unlawful to worship God or even to show images of the Ten Commandments. Convert our universities into fortresses of anti-Americanism, hatred of freedom, and centers of confusion and ignorance. Encourage contempt for the family and for the community. If you are old-fashioned, or patriotic, you will love this book.







This book was much better than I expected it to be. I picked it up off the shelf in our church library because I struggle with grace in my parenting. If I were alive when Jesus was, I am pretty sure I would be a pharisee! I like rules, you obey, good job. You break them, you get a punishment, easy enough. God has used my kids to shape and mold many areas of my life, and this is no exception. There is lots of very practical advice in here for parents, no matter what stage/age your kids are.

I re-read the entire Little House series a few years ago. It was so fun going back to my childhood and re-live the memories of reading them!

I also have a Little House Cookbook from when I was a kid. I can't wait to use it when Alana gets bigger!

And the Ben Stein book? I didn't even know that existed! I LOVE Ben Stein! I am going to see if my library has it! Thank you! Thank you!

I heard John and Susan Yates speak at a Family Life conference 3 years ago. I remember them well, because she told us they had 5 kids in 7 years, including a set of twin girls. I tend to remember details like that...just say the word "twins" and I'm all ears!

I'll have to be on the look out for this book.

I read the Little House series in Jr. High. I loved those books!

Thanks for the recommendation for the grace book. (Can't remember the exact title now.) I think grace is something that most parents find to be a struggle.
