Picture Books Perfect for Winter

I love books. Most days I go through the day wondering when I can steal just a few minutes of time to sit down and read one of the several books I have started. (Anyone else read more than one book at a time?)

We are a family of readers and considering how much my husband and I love to read, it's no surprise that our children devour books faster than we do. (Maybe because they have so much more free time on their hands than we do??) 

I love times when I can snuggle up on the couch with our kids to read books together. They love it too and Winter is naturally a perfect season to devote more time to reading with them because the weather generally isn't too favorable outside.

Every time I come across one of our "winter" books, I think I really should take the time to share our favorites with you. So, here's our top 10 favorite winter reads.

Not the Update I Wanted to Give

A little under a year ago, I first told you about our son starting Oral Immunotherapy (OIT) for his severe peanut allergy. Along the way, I promised to give you updates to let you know how the program worked out for us. I haven't given one in a long time just because of time, but we're at the stage where I feel it's only fair to give full disclosure to any who may be considering OIT for their child's allergy.

Before I go any further though, I just want to say, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

How We Treat Ear Infections without Antibiotics


Ear infections were something that our boys struggled with a lot when they were younger. In fact, one of our boys got his first ear infection at 2 months of age and the pediatrician warned us then that children who start getting them that young often end up with tubes in their ears.

That was not what I wanted to hear and after our youngest continued to get repeated infections (and inevitably ending up on antibiotics each time) I began to look for some alternative methods for prevention and treatment.

Honey Glazed Chicken That Will Knock Your Socks Off

This recipe will knock your socks off and make you feel like a million bucks.

It's what I like to call Honey Glazed Chicken and taste-wise, it might be reminiscent to a sweet and sour chicken dish you'd find in a Chinese restaurant. But better.

Beyond the Mask {A Christian Adventure Film Coming to Theaters April 2015}

Blazing the trail in Christian adventure movies, Beyond the Mask is the first of it's kind in the Christian film industry.

It masterfully weaves the hope of the gospel into a Christian adventure story that brings history to life while celebrating true love, grace and redemption.

Set in the tumult of the young, American nation declaring it's independence from Great Britain, Beyond the Mask presents the desperation we all face when trying to find our identity in anything other than Christ.

The story line is about a young man who tries to run from his past by taking on a new identity, but eventually realizes that no matter how noble his new life is, it can never make his past right. 

His struggle is one that all of us can relate to. 

It is not until we receive freedom in Christ that we are released from the bondage and fear of living behind the mask of who we pretend to be.
