Pray through Ramadan

Ramadan 2014

Ramadan is the holiest time of year for Muslims. Sadly, it is also a time when persecution against Christians in Islamic countries increases. This year Ramadan is June 28 through July 27 .

During this season of Ramadan, let’s join together and pray for Muslims to know the peace of God and for Christians who live in Muslim countries to be strengthened and protected.

Dinosaurs: Stars of the Show

Dinosaurs Stars of the Show

 

I recently bought several new books for my 2 1/2 year old granddaughter. I read to her at nap time and felt like we needed to expand our literary horizons. I love reading to her the same books that I read to her daddy when he was little. Not just the same titles – the very same books. However, I wanted to find some books that both of us would enjoy and that would begin building a foundation of faith in her.

Dinosaurs: Stars of the Show by Amie Zordel was one of the books I purchased, and my granddaughter loves it. As in, I’ve-read-it-to-her-4-days-straight loves it. It tells the story of dinosaurs from a biblical perspective and is written in simple rhyme. It is very basic – which I love because it is simple enough for her to understand most of it. It also has lovely illustrations.

If you’re looking for an intellectual book with a deep, scholarly approach to the scientific questions about dinosaurs, this is not the book for you. If, however, you are looking for a book that is both scientific and biblical but is also simple enough for a toddler to enjoy, then this is definitely the book for you!
