So not so long ago, I decided that I wanted to change my eating habits, and have a healthier diet. I wanted to cut my sugar and carb cravings, get in shape and lose a few pounds in the process. I had heard a lot about the Ketogenic diet, and decided to learn more. What I found was very interesting, and I felt like it was doable! If you want to learn more, this video from Dr. Berg is a great place to start.
Life can certainly come at you fast. With the start of a New Year, you may feel overwhelmed by an anxiousness convincing you that you need to put yourself into overdrive in order to make the most out of the time you’ve been given. While slowing down may not allow you to get the most done in a little amount of time, it will help you make the most out of the moments God has blessed you with. This year, take the initiative to pause and stay in the moment in order to strengthen your relationship with faith and enjoy your loved ones more deeply.

Prepare Him Room
Share God's best gift with your family this year and start a Lifetime of traditions with this gospel-focused, four-week Advent family devotional. Each week includes Bible readings, fun Christmas activities, songs, and an original Christmas story.
This is a really great family devotional that I recommend. It is unlike any other that I have read. I would say that it is a very interactive devotional, which makes it unique and actually lots of fun! It's simple enough to where the activities and devotional are not too much, or too difficult. Great for families in preparation for Christmas! A wonderful way to teach your children about Jesus and celebrate the nativity story. 🙂

Books are a great gift, especially for children. Not only do we want to encourage the love of reading and give them stories they will enjoy, we want to provide teaching moments. Plus giving little ones new books is really a gift to the parents as well. They need a break from the same old bedtime stories.
You don’t have to be a parent to buy for kids, you know! Maybe you have grandkids, nieces, nephews, neighbors, or want to bless some children from church.
New Growth Press is jumping into the gift giving season by giving away THREE children’s book gift boxes (retail value of $125 each). All of their children’s books are beautifully illustrated, entertaining, teach a lesson, and most importantly, are biblically based!
From November 19-25, you can enter to win one of three children’s gift boxes.
Each gift box includes five of New Growth Press’ new children’s releases and two of their best sellers:
God Counts: Numbers in His Word and His World by Irene Sun
This playful children’s book serves as a beginner’s theology book for young readers who love numbers and patterns. By discovering numbers in God’s world and in his Word, parents help their children foster a deeper love and knowledge of who God is and how he counts them as his. With countable illustrations and an easy-to-learn structure, children who are always seeking, finding, tracing, and counting numbers will be captivated by God Counts.
Buster’s Ears Trip Him Up: When You Fail edited by Edward T. Welch
Jax’s Tail Twitches: When You are Angry edited by David Powlison
Zoe’s Hiding Place: When You are Anxious edited by David Powlison
These three books are a part of the Good News for Little Hearts series. This is a new series of hardback, illustrated children’s books for three-to eight-year-olds—each centered on an animal family. The animal characters, colorful illustrations, and the real-life issues each animal family face will captivate children. The first three books address anxiety, anger, and failure, bringing biblical counsel and hope to issues every child faces. Together children and parents will be guided by the stories into meaningful conversations about living by faith in everyday life.
God Made Me and You by Shai Linne
God Made Me and You invites kids to explore God’s design for ethnic diversity. Because Scripture teaches that ethnic diversity is not something that should be tolerated but rather enthusiastically embraced, Christian hip hop artist Shai Linne helps children, parents, and caregivers to celebrate this biblical truth through a lyrical, rhyming style and colorful illustrations.
God Made All of Me by Justin and Lindsey Holcomb
God Made All of Me is an invaluable resource and beautifully illustrated story to help families talk about sensitive issues with two- to eight-year-old children. This helpful guide starts from the fundamental truth that God created everything and applies that truth to kids and their bodies. With the help of God Made All of Me, parents and caregivers can begin conversations with boys and girls about their bodies, navigating a discussion that can so easily be warped into confusion, embarrassment, and secrecy.
The Radical Book for Kids: Exploring the Roots and Shoots of Faith by Champ Thornton
The Radical Book for Kids is a fun-filled explorer’s guide to the Bible, church history, and life for boys and girls ages eight and up. Vibrantly illustrated and chock-full of fun facts and ideas, this interactive book competes with screen time by stimulating children’s natural curiosity and sense of adventure! Along with the many fun and exciting stories of historical figures, young and old readers alike will learn about the roots of our faith and the importance of the gospel in our lives.
