Show & Tell Friday for May 30
Okay, after months of being away it looks as if I will be able to take part in Show & Tell Friday today. What more appropriate item to show you all than part of the reason I haven't been here for awhile -- this year's summer devotional book. For those who don't know, I write a devotional book each year for our church's children's ministry to use through the summer. I do make them available to other churches who are interested in using them. It seems that most children's ministries are geared to the school year only, yet many churches either continue their ministries year round or like to provide materials for the kids to use through the summer. So here it is --Pine Cone Lodge! That's the title of this year's book, which has an Adirondack lodge/outdoor theme. I am so happy to have it finished!
I thought I would also share pictures of some of the other recent books I have done. Here is a photo of Living Waters Ranch (2006) and Riding a Mountain Railway (2007).
And here is a photo of Camp Evergreen (summer camp theme) and In Green Pastures (Irish/sheep theme). As you see, each year's book has a theme, which is enjoyable for kids (and makes the books easier to plan and write). I could theoretically start over with some of my earlier themes by now -- there were three earlier books, one with a prayer theme and two with an almanac theme (what happened on this day in history, etc). The problem is that I keep thinking of new and (to me, anyway) fascinating themes. So only the Lord knows how long I will continue doing this!
To see what others have shared for Show & Tell this week, go visit visit There is No Place Like Home and check out the links. It’s so much fun to see what others have to share!
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
