I am honestly in love with these temporary tattoos from #ArmedWithTruth. My kids think they are super-cool and we get to be reminded of God's Word all thru the day!

Wanna win $15 toward your own tattoos? I'm givin' some away today! (You're welcome!)

Writing to encourage you. Love the idea of writing scripture on our arms to be "armed with truth". Whatever gets God's word planted into our children's hearts is an excellent tool in my book! Thank you so much for introducing these to your community!!

This little question from +Robin Dance and a #truthinthetinsel tweet got me thinking about the energy we put into celebrating #Christmas and #Advent.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the post that followed...

I had never heard of the book till I saw this post, but what a cool idea. We don't have kids yet, but when we do, "Truth in the Tensel" will definitely be a big part of our December.

My husband owns a #crossfit  gym and as his unofficial make-the-gym-decently-attractive coordinator, I decided to put up a Christmas tree last week. I decorated with ornaments made by artisans in East Africa in partnership with Ornaments4Orphans.org. All the ornaments can be purchased for only $10--all of which goes right back to the families who made them and to an organization that protects and provides for orphans in the same area.

HOW COOL IS THAT?! You can do the same with your organization or simply buy an ornament for yourself or as a gift.

I saw Disney's #Frozen  this week! I was afraid it was going to be all silly snowmen and reindeer. Instead, it was a really beautiful movie about sisters.

But should your kids see it this weekend? Well, here's my review-->

I saw Disney's newest animated movie, Frozen last night. And you know I love Disney with all of me. You know I love seeing a movie before it's actually released. And you know I'll be truthful (and ...

God-Lover. Life-Sharer. Kid-Wrangler.
Introduction
Back in the day I was a Children's Pastor--like the person who develops and leads ministry for kids in a local church. Then one day I became a mom and all those ministry skills were suddenly focused and funneled directly into one little girl.

And that about wraps it up. Now, I do a hybrid-homeschool thingie with my two kids, volunteer in the preschool department of my church and I like to think of creative ways to tell my kids about Jesus--and then share them to you.

I write about my favorite kids' books, parenting-type books, kid-friendly music, God-centered movies, fun crafts, silly games, family togetherness and more. I sometimes add a little birthday party or family vacation (ie. DISNEY WORLD) info in there, too.

I wrote Truth in the Tinsel: An Advent Experience for Little Hands which has sold over 12,000 copies and is pretty much famous.

And, well, pdeebeedee, that's all folks
