It occurred to me that I never made a post about the Dover stationery items we’re offering as a mini gift package. These are four small format books in a cello bag tied with a narrow satin ribbon. Makes a really cute and sweet gift for loads of occasions. Want to check it out? You can find this offer here. Thanks!

We have a new little something–a new Facebook page for our children’s blog. I’m calling it by the same name as the blog, “Helping Children Grow,” and even with all my efforts of today to get it going and recruit followers, the start is very slow. Well, the Lord will do with it as He wills and with all the blogs and social media I have to take care of, I hope He can yet use it to be a blessing to a few. And one thing the Lord is not allowing around here: to let my head get too big from huge followings of fans. Hope it’s keeping me humble for as Mr. Ryle often said, humility is a crown for the believer. And we so easily let our priorities get out of whack. So as always, He knows best.
Well, here is our mission from the page description: “A page dedicated to helping and supporting parents in particular, but also grandparents, aunt and uncles, and others who invest in the moral and spiritual growth of children. We recognize that “a happy childhood carries its own brightness to another generation, springing up with the same glad anticipations…” (from Godey’s Lady’s Book, 1856) This too, is a part of the reason for this page: to help children grow in gladness in that old-fashioned way of family life and values. And that includes teens. Lots of pictures, quotes, amusements, challenges, and links. Enjoy and find inspiration to minister to young people.”
So there you have it. Let’s see how it goes.

Just another reminder, as we occasionally do, that “Keys for Kids” devotions are posted at our site. If you are looking for a nice short devotional for your kids on a given day, try printing one out and using it. The key for the day is always a nice discussion starter for your family as well. We recommend our Bright Gems book, of course, but these are a nice alternative. They are posted everyday here. Today they are talking about the important topic of doing your best when given a job to do. An important character lesson for anyone, especially the young.

Like the old hymns? Do you want your kids to grow in appreciation for them? Well, please don’t forget about our recording “Verses and Hymns for the Very Young!” This recording was once immensely popular in its cassette form but remember, we do have some CD’s of this on hand and can get more if need be. And if you still have a cassette player, by all means throw in one or two of these with your order of other products, it’s so cheap. And let your kids sing away as we’ve heard they always do with this!
Many of us realize how rich the old hymns of the faith are. And the words are well worth learning and memorizing. Also little bits of Scripture are mixed in with the hymns to make your children’s learning experience even better. Find out more here.
