As a child, I did not grow up in a Christian home.  Reading Bible stories at bedtime (or any other time for that matter), was not something I did.

But having come to Christ in my early 20′s, I had the privilege of reading Bible stories to my own children every night. Even though my children are grown now, I love the opportunity to review products for children. After all, I am a child at heart! And with my first grandchild on the way, and a Sunday School Class full of 4-6 year olds, I am building a library of acceptable reading materials to share with the little ones in my life.

I’m thrilled with delight because my favorite season, autumn, is almost here.

It’s a time when God takes out His paint brush and changes the colors of His canvas to lemon yellow, apple red, and russet brown. The beauty around us grips tight to the change as we reap the harvest of God’s bounty.

Soon winter’s chill will set in and cover the ground with its freshly fallen snow. For me, winter is a season I do not look forward to. The cold and snow are nice for a while, but the long, dark days soon grow weary on my restless soul.
