Mother + Son: The Respect Effect |

Mother and Son: What’s your story?

I've been mother and son with Ethan for nearly 15 years. He has always been my most tender-hearted and strong-willed child, more so as he's come into his teenaged years. He is consistently "bucking the system" and asserting his authority by pushing boundaries we've firmly placed in front of him. Plainly speaking, our family has experienced a great deal of emotions over the past year as we've stepped into the process of molding Ethan into a man who will change the world for good and God. What I'm learning now, as his mother, is that this process must include respect for the son. Wait, what?! This is news to us. I mean, we're the parents and parents = kids must respect, right? Dr. Emerson Eggerichs (respectfully) disagrees with us. He says, "As he...

Hunting Hope: you can’t find light without darkness

This post/review about Hunting Hope was written by my 12-year-old daughter, Mary. By having her assist me with this review, it was my hope that she would really dig deep into her emotions and share some of that with you today. What I found is that she is not ready to dive so far down. However, she has opened up with me about so many things in the past few months, I am confident she will share her stories with other teens someday. Hope is not an accident. Hunting it takes courage. Hunting Hope shares truths about God's character and helps you develop your own character during a crisis. BUY NOW.

League and Lantern |

The League and the Lantern inspires my middle schooler to read

One of the coolest things about being a mom is watching my children learn to love reading as much as I did as a child. Mary reads constantly; her brothers, on the other hand, read only when they are forced to. Despite multiple trips to the library, and encouraging them to discover a series they love, they manage to turn most of our time spent there into a celebrity death match. So, when a book was delivered to my doorstep, they didn't think much of it. Then, I pulled it out of the packaging and read the storyline out loud. My youngest son was hooked. Finally - an adventure series that my kid wants to read! Bonus points for the 140 key vocabulary words that are hidden throughout the story, historic sites...
