It's Almost Here!

The big day is almost here and I have found a thought to help us get through the hectic season and stay grounded when it comes to what is really important during the Christmas holidays.

"Let us remember that the Christmas heart is a giving heart, a wide open heart that thinks of others first. The birth of the baby Jesus stands as the most significant event in all history, because it has meant the pouring into a sick world the healing medicine of love which has transformed all manner of hearts for almost two thousand years... Underneath all the bulging bundles is this beating Christmas heart."
-- George Matthew Adams (The Christmas Heart)

More Great Books For Children

Book: Who's Your Hero?: Book of Mormon Stories Applied To Children Volumes 1-4 Author: David Bowman

If you think children ages three and up should help more around the house, complain less while doing it, and have the courage to always choose the right, then this book is a must-have! Who’s Your Hero? teaches young children about heroic examples from the Book of Mormon, but even more: At the end of each scripture story, children will learn a timely, heroic lesson for today. For example, Ammon loves to do chores around the house (just like he loved helping King Lamoni with his horses), and Nephi doesn’t complain when it’s time to go to bed (just like he didn’t complain when his father Lehi asked him to do hard things). Family home evening ideas and activities are also featured. Who’s Your Hero? is ideal for starting children early on to love the Book of Mormon!

This whole series is great. My kids think the pictures are hilarious:o)
