Daily Steps for God Chicks

Daily Steps for God Chicks by Holly Wagner is a 90 day devotional. I like Holly's personal writing style, it's like a visit with a girl friend. This book is more than a devotional which tend to be passive. This book gives you a daily assignment that build on one another. Some are reflective-perfect for journaling and some are more active steps.

This is one devotional that I'll keep in rotation. I'm looking forward to reading more by Holly Wagner.

Thank you Regal Books for this copy in exchange for my honest review.

Warrior Chick

Sound your battle cry! Stop being a whimpy Christian, be the warrior God made and called you to be! Warrior Chicks by Holly Wagner is like visiting with my girlfriends. Holly's writing is easy and fun while getting across strong spiritual truths. Holly shows us the "how and why" of putting on the armor of God daily.

Each of us have battles, be it a serious health issue, such as cancer, a family issue like rebellious teens or a marriage that is falling apart. We even have minor issues daily that we need to rely on God to get us through with victory. People are watching our testimony while we deal with these issues. Holly shows us how to move from being a victim to an overcoming warrior.

This book would be a terrific book for group Bible study, Sunday School or personal Bible study- a study guide is included in the back. Although written for women by a woman, men could also glean much of the warrior spirit from this book.

I'll be visiting Holy in this book again and again.

Thank you to Regal books for this copy in exchange for my honest review.

Lesson Plans

Well, I finally got some uninterrupted time on the computer to catch up Bella's lesson plans. You can view weeks 18-27 here.

Again these are our actual lesson plans that we are really doing. As you can see some weeks are full and others are not due to travel or sickness.
This is my own "tweeked" schedule of Sonlight books that I had already. I've added many other books as well. The list of books isn't complete, after we are done I'll update the list with all the books we used.

Free Summer Fun!

I signed the girls up for the Kids Bowl Free bowling all summer long!

"Select bowling centers and schools around the country are participating in the first ever “Kids Bowl Free” program. This program is designed by bowling centers to give back to the community and provide a safe, secure, and fun way for kids to spend time this summer.

Children whose age does not exceed a limit by a participating bowling center are eligible to register for 2 free games a day, all summer long, courtesy of the particpating bowling centers along with the schools and organizations."

Fun with my girls!

Well I didn't get my 2nd grade lesson plans typed up, blah. I'll have to work on that soon.

We had a very nice relaxing time during our Easter break. We saw the movie "How to Train Your Dragon" it was very good. We all enjoyed it. We went for a hike along the Red River, but the camera batteries died so didn't get any pictures.

Emilie's 15 birthday was on Friday, can't believe she is 15! Her friend Hannha spent the night.

Today the girls and I are going to a mother/daughter conference with our church. All the moms and daughters that are going made tie-dye shirts to wear on Saturday. That was fun, my girls want to do more tie-dye.

Today for school we are doing History, Science and Math.
