I have a new book to tell you about, Once Upon a Prince by Rachel Hauck. I found this to be such a delightful read. It was fun, entertaining, romantic and I read the entire book in one sitting! I personally felt sucked into the story at the very beginning during the emotional breakup. Hauck does a great job developing the characters charm quickly and you
cannot help but route for Susanna and Nate's budding relationship to blossom. Sure, I felt like the ending was a bit predictable in some ways but I am A-OK with that! If you are looking for a clean romance book with a modern day fairy tale feel then look no further, this is a book for you.

Have you heard of Adventures in Odyssey? I really hope you have because if not you are really missing out! Adventures in Odyssey, the beloved audio series from Focus on the Family, has encouraged kids toward a stronger faith for 25 years. Whit, Connie, Eugene, and the other lovable characters from Odyssey have shared countless adventures with kids across the world in the classic audio dramas, books, videos, and devotionals, fulfilling the AIO promise to help kids discover, imagine, and grow. I am proud to partner with Adventures in Odyssey and Tyndale House in joining them in their Summer of Service A.C.T.S blog tour.
Join Adventures in Odyssey this
summer to discover how fun it can be to serve others!
Adventures in Odyssey is joining with Christian bookstores across the
country, inviting kids to participate in a Summer of Service. They’re
promoting the biblical message, “When you serve, everybody wins,”
encouraging kids to serve their families, their communities, and
their world. Whether it’s baking cookies for an elderly neighbor or
putting together a care package for missionaries overseas, kids will
discover that serving can be a blast!
How the A.C.T.S. (A Call to
Service) challenge and contest works:
Kids who join A.C.T.S. can pick up a
service log and collect fun character stickers for hours served at
participating bookstores throughout the summer, or download a serving
log online at whitsend.org. At the end of the summer, kids can record and upload a short video
telling how they serve and why they’d like to become an Adventures
in Odyssey Ambassador.
A hundred winners will get the brand
new AIO Album, and after online voting, two grand prize winners (one
boy and one girl) will get to travel on an exciting Good-Goers
Mission Based Adventure trip to another country with a parent! The
out-of-country destination will be announced on a live podcast May
22—hosted by AIO actors Katie Leigh (Connie) and Chris Anthony
(Chris)—which you can watch at whitsend.org/acts. You don’t want to miss it!
On May 22, there will be a webcast launch
Why serve? And how to serve?
One of the best things we can do to build selfless, confident children is to help and
encourage them toward a growing and thriving faith in God which includes serving others! We do not serve because it makes us feel good - although, most of the time it actually does but instead we serve others because we are following God's instructions. Modeling and encouraging serving will help build
faith that our children can carry with them into adulthood—which is one of the greatest gifts any parent can bestow on their children.
For David's 35th birthday this year the kids and I put together a "blessing box" as one of his gifts.
Some of our ideas
The box contained 35 ways that we could bless others within our community. These ideas included hiding $1 bills in our local Dollar Store, placing free red box codes on the machines, giving out reusable bags to those who forgot them, handing out Chick-fil-A gift cards, bags to be left at changing stations that contain diapers and wipes, snack bags (juice/granola bars) to hand out to those in need, Gatorade to distribute, Cliff bars to hand out, bags of change to be left on vending machines, and Hershey bars to be given out for a sweet treat to name a few.
Have you ever been out and about with a little one and forgotten diapers and perhaps wipes? We thought this could really bless people with little ones.
Ready to distribute
The kids and I are also planning on baking cookies to distribute to the local firefighters in our area for all the work they do. We want to bless them in a practical way and show them the love of God and thank them for their service! David and the kids and I have been having a great time distributing the contents of his "blessing" box. These are just a few examples of simple ways to bless and serve others. What ideas do you have? Please let me know!
Click here to gain access to the free downloadable mp3 file of the AIO Service episode! And there is a free PDF download of summer service ideas for kids available here. Hope you decide to participate!
Have you heard of kidecals? They offer personalized, water-proof kid's name labels and decals.
Personalized Kids Name Labels can come in handy on bottles, clothing, books, toys, sports gear - really you name it! kidecals are durable, dishwasher/washing machine/dryer safe and they do not damage surfaces - what is not to love? There are even clothing labels perfect for summer camps!

Their Waterproof labels are also durable and can stick to just about anything and stay put. These are especially handy for pool toys and you know that summer is almost here :).
Fun Mustache Stickers are a fun touch. If I had known about these I would have gotten them for my nephew's mustache bash last month! These partystache stickers can be used as drink markers and the mustache chalkboard stickers are a fun way to label and organize anything in your pantry or craft room.
The variety of options adds a bit of character!
kidecals makes some of the prettiest designs when it comes to chalkboard labels. What an easy and fun way to get organized fast and the fact that they can go through the dishwasher is amazing to me.
I love this chalkboard design.
