Definitly feels like winter is coming…chilling weather, cold in the morning, windy streets, the longer nighttime! It comes to one thing- the Christmas is coming soon! More presents, more gifts, more books- loads of them!

One Small Donkey is the book about a donkey who travels with Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem, to meet the first Christmas night… Did he know the sovereignty and awesomeness of the night? 

With jolly poetic penmenship, Dandi tells the Christmas story from the donkey point-of-view to children.

Dreams and visions are the tools God gave us to find, pursue, and make dreams come true. But what happens when we don’d know what to do and have questions in our hearts? God uses dreams to talk and worn. Whether He talks through dreams, during devotional time, or through the song, He provides the answer and assurance to continue doing what God called us to do.

A Fresh Infusion of Joy by Sheila Walsh.

Little description: Could you use a joy infusion?

When was the last time you had a spontaneous laugh because your heart was absolutely overwhelmed with joy?

Whether you’re facing mundane routines or painful hardships, joy often feels out of reach. But those who know Jesus can live joyfully, no matter what—it’s a gift that can only come from God. Jesus engulfs His followers with great love so that He may fill them with His joy.

Bestselling author Sheila Walsh invites you to discover daily joy. Through funny and inspiring stories, powerful takeaways, and encouraging scriptures, Sheila shows that joy sometimes comes from gratitude, God’s beautiful creation, grace, or simply delighting in God’s goodness and love. And it always comes from spending time in Jesus’ presence. He brings life, restoration, and . . . joy!

Genre: Christian Living

My thoughts: 5 stars out of 5

Joy is a lifestyle that inhabits the lives of those who choose to be filled with God’s joy as an act of their will. 

Sheila Walsh discovers joy through praising, worshiping, thanksgiving. She sees the source of joy from just watching sunsets and sunrises, the fluffy clouds, or just hiking the mountain trail.

The book is a great inspiration to find joy again.

Beautiful Title and Dedication pages. The illustrations are fluffy and light, with kit’s imagination they will come alive. The story encourages the children to fall asleep while imagining the toys in the story. As for me, the illustrations are the best asset of the book, but the word choices are to hard for the toddler’s ear.

By implementing the ideas in this book, mothers (as well as fathers) will be equipped to understand and guide their daughters through each step of becoming His “princess.” This will include perceiving a daughter’s unique personality and gifts, refining her character through training and discipline, and modeling the attributes of a daughter of the King.

I just want to say one thing… AMAZING!

This book is like a workbook for moms and dads, who want to teach their young princesses to know the real beauty, character development, faith of purpose and strength. The book is loaded with the ideas to try and activities to participate. The design is beautiful…

It contains sections about the fruits of the Spirit and how to help the daughters of the King to achieve the best they can be. With “Fruitful Activities” the parents will learn how to introduce new fruit of the character in their kid’s life. With games and fun activities each kid would be thrilled to repeat the fun again and again. In “Dad and Daughter Activities” dads will deepen their relationship with their princesses. Check the Profile Character Test  in “Mom’s Tools” to learn what kind of personality the princess has, and enhance it with more fun activities. In “Dad’s Toolbox” Doreen and Karen explain more about tools need for girls to be super-princessy!
