Candy Corn Cookies

Candy corn is one of my favorite treats for this time of year. I could go on and on stuffing them in if a bowl is set before me. YUMMY! I saw this unusual recipe on one of my Yahoo groups today and wanted to pass it on. Might be a fun activity for you and your kids, only I would change the margarine to butter. For our household, margarine is a no-no for flavor. It's got to be butter for baking. Anyway, hop on over to the "Cooking with Kids" site and enjoy!

Birthday Celebrations

This is a great video to look at together as a family. Maybe you could have a time or prayer, with your children joining in? Even if you're not able to sponsor at this time, it surely would be a good matter to pray about and if there is any chance that your family could participate, this would be quite an incentive!

Theology Matters

Hopefully you'll agree that it's important to teach theology to even our youngest children. For the very young, I would recommend Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland. To me, it's the best book out there for teaching biblical truths that even the very youngest can understand. Also, I've written a couple of books that should be helpful. Bright Gems for His Crown focuses on character issues while weaving in just enough Bible doctrine to help you to teach them yourself while they go through the book on their own or as a study with you, the parent. We recently released The Romans Treasury, which is a study for teen girls in the book of Romans, and as we all know, when you study Romans, you're studying theology.
