Truth in Tinsel: Week One Highlights

Truth in Tinsel: Week One Highlights

Have you checked out the Truth in the Tinsel ebook yet? It is one of THE BEST resources I've seen for very young children during the Advent season.  It's great way to slow down and savor the month of December (hard task!) and to really focus on the true Christmas story in the weeks leading up to the celebration of Christ's birth.   Here are some highlights from the first year we went through the book.   Want a quick snapshot of the first week in Truth in Tinsel?  Then you've come to … [Read more...]

Cook.  We've been using the Read and Share Bible for our now 2-year old daughter, but I thought this new Bible might be a better fit.  Here's the scoop: The Good The Table of Contents: I like the Scripture references next to the stories.  It would have been nice if those were on the actual pages as well.
