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.

Are Big Dogs A Bigger Responsibility?

Image Source Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. When opting to own a bigger breed, there are clearly going to be some differences in owning a Chihuahua. However, how big are these differences? Is the responsibility far greater with a humungous hound? Or are there some bonuses to having a big bow-wow-ing beast? Diet Big dogs do require a different diet then small dogs, not just in terms of portion size but nutrients too. They often need a greater amount of protein, especially as a pup when they are growing. This higher protein food costs more, and given that you’ll be serving up higher portions, you’ll go through a lot more dog food with a big breed than you would with a small breed. There are also other factors to consider. Big dogs are often more likely to contract allergies to certain foods. This can sometimes mean buying hypoallergenic dog food , which is unsurprisingly more expensive. It’s also recommended using a raised dog bowl once a big dog reaches adulthood.
