Book Review - The Sticky Faith Guide For Your Family

Do you ever wonder if you're doing the best you can to raise your small children?  I do, all the time.  I want my children to be adults that change the world, by changing the world around them, and to that end, I just finished reading a book that I think is one of the best books to help us parents bring up our children "in the Way they should go".
by Dr. Kara E. Powell

Did you know that nearly half of all children that were raised in Christian homes tend to leave the faith when they become adults? That could explain many of the challenges our society faces today...a generation that does not understand what it means to live for others.  It's time for us to change this.

While there are books that encourage and books that only quote scripture, I liked the fact that this book gives you concrete steps you can take to strengthen your families....advise and tips from other families that have worked for them, and may work for you.  And really, you don't have to be of the Christian faith to benefit from this book...because almost all of the suggestions are about living a life of love, for your family, and for your world.  And with the step by step suggestions and real life stories, there are also thought provoking questions at the end of every chapter.  So this would be a great study for family devotions or small groups.

Go ahead, and get a copy for yourself, and share it when you've read it.

Be blessed,

*I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for my review, but the opinions are wholly mine.*

Being Part Of A Team

Hey Everyone!!!!  Sorry it's been over a week since my last post (mybad) but I've had an exciting and busy week.  Let me tell you my great news....I am now an official member of The Craftstar team....and I can't think of a better team to join.
Heading into the 2014 Holiday Season....Bethan Davies is practically exploding with ideas to help promote The Craftstar, and every artist there.  Let me show you what we're doing now....

The Creative Community Celebrates...

...and this is how it works.  During the week, (Monday, Wednesday, and Friday), we choose a TCS shop, make a wonderful graphic (see above) and then share it on Google+, Twitter, Facebook, and blogs.  (On the google+ graphic you'll even find the links to the shops, plus tips on what to say on all the social media outlets).  It's as easy as playing tag...and when you use the hashtag #TCScelebrates, you may win a free month on The Craftstar.  It's a win win for everyone.

Now for my part of the teamwork...I am contacting the local media for each artist that we are celebrating, so our artists may even get interviewed for more local exposure!  How great is that?  Plus I am working on spreading the word about The Craftstar in the blogosphere....links everywhere. lol

Want to know what else you get by becoming part of The Craftstar?  Help!  With everything.  Rhonda makes video business cards for you, (and commercials) Google+, Facebook, and helps with tech issues.  Natalie helps with Twitter and Pinterest, Sherri runs our fun Facebook auctions, and Carrie loves to help with photography tips (she's a professional).  And that's not all, if you need ANYTHING, we will work hard to help you succeed.

So come on and join the "team" at The Craftstar, because no-one becomes a success all by themselves.

Be blessed,
