Wonderfully Made by Danika Cooley



Hey neighbors!

I previously shared a little about this book and a giveaway that was going on.  Now, I would like to share a little more about this book.  I believe now, more than ever in the past we need to ground our children in Biblically sound teachings.  This book, Wonderfully Made, by Danika Cooley tells how a child is formed from the time of conception to birth.  The book is done keeping the innocence of your child in mind.

The book follows a week by week description of the baby's formation and development.  I would suggest the book for ages 7 and up, but you could use it with younger children to share the pictures and explain some of the growth and development in your own words.  I love that she gives examples of common items to compare the size of the baby, so your child can get a visual image in their minds.

Danika includes Bible verses throughout the book.  I personally use only KJV, but it is so easy to just look the verse up and read out of my own Bible, that I would not consider that a drawback.  The verses are of course to do with how God has created each individual.

If you are expecting and have other children, this is the perfect book to use to explain the pregnancy.  Wonderfully Made is a great gift too.  You don't need to be expecting though to use this book, it is great just to explain from conception to childbirth to your children.  When you get asked where do babies come from, pull out your copy of Wonderfully Made.

One of the very best parts of this book is the end, where Danika goes from explaining about the physical birth to describing spiritual birth.  What a great transition from physical to spiritual.  This will open a door to you speaking to your child regarding their spiritual state.

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.

10 Things You Need To Do Before Moving Abroad

From There is nothing more fulfilling than travelling the world and visiting new and exciting places. If you’re a fan of travel , then you might have thought about moving abroad at some point.
