THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “Mother’s Dozen:  An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!”

Yes, even fathers are reading “Mother’s Dozen”!

Andre Harris of California says, “Power Packed Without the Fluff.  As a new father, Mother’s Dozen has been a great resource.  Why re-invent the wheel when Joyce Fields has put together a simple, yet comprehensive road map to child rearing.  The 12 categories are basic ingredients that cross gender, race and culture.  To sum, Mother’s Dozen takes you back to understanding the core values that drive individual behavior from infancy to adulthood.  A great read.”

THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place






MOTHER’S DOZEN:  An Easy Recipe for Raising GREAT Kids!







God’s Cake

Sometimes we wonder, “What did I do to deserve this?” or “Why did God have to do this to me?

Here is a wonderful explanation. . .
A daughter is telling her mother how everything is going wrong—she’s failing algebra, her boyfriend broke up with her, and her best friend is moving away.

Meanwhile, the mother is baking a cake and asks her daughter if she would like a snack, and the daughter says, “Absolutely, Mom.  I love your cake.”

“Here, have some butter,” her mother offers.

“Yuck,” says her daughter.

“How about a couple of raw eggs?”

“Gross, Mom!”

“Would you like some flour?  Or maybe some baking soda?”

“Mom, those are all yucky!”

To which her mother replies, “Yes, all those things seem bad all by themselves.  But when they are put together in the right way, they make a wonderfully delicious cake!”

God works the same way.

Many times we wonder why He would let us go through such bad and difficult times.  But God knows that when He puts these things all in His order, they always work for good!  We just have to trust Him and, eventually, they will all make something wonderful!

God is crazy about you.  He sends you flowers every spring and a sunrise every morning.

Whenever you want to talk, He’ll listen.
