Uzbek Children

Isn't this little girl adorable?

What is a normal, happy childhood? In Uzbekistan, some of the Christians there have been accused of depriving their children because they take them to church. Do your children have any idea just how blessed they are? Please read the KOC feature for this month and please make it a matter of prayer in your home.

Build a Dollhouse

I came across the following website quite by accident and I LOVE it!!! I just HAD to pass it on to folks who come here to HCG so that you can bookmark it. Excellent project(s) for the whole family to work on together and a wonderful hobby for older boys and girls alike. You'll find links to all kinds of goodies, especially for art and applying math skills. Hats off to this lady, Jennifer; I sure do wish I had tried this when my children were smaller.

Dollhouses are so great. And making your own. . .well, that's the best. Hours of enjoyment for young people of all ages and surely you'll agree that it reaps lots of imaginative benefits as well as decorating skills which will be useful in future days.

If any of you out there do try your hand at any of these projects, please let us know how you make out. Go now to
Let's Build a Dollhouse and look around!

With Pointed Teeth

When we first opened this new site, we promised that puzzlers/riddles were coming, so here is the first one. For more information on these, see the first post under this category.

Remember, these are just for fun, but stretching the mind is healthy for children and adults alike. Have your children give it a try, and there's no age limit!!! Dads and moms are welcome to help out. :) We'll give the answer in a few days whether it's guessed or not. No prizes, just fun guessing.


With pointed teeth I sit and wait,
To join my victims and determine fate.
My bloodless subjects show no fright,
Even when I pounce for a single bite.
What am I?
