"Would a Worm Go on a Walk" Book Review


My kiddos were simply delighted when this beautifully illustrated, faith-filled Children's book arrived at our doorstep today! "Would a Worm Go on a Walk" written by Hannah C. Hall and Illustrated by Bill Bolton is simply delightful, engaging for children of all ages, and has the most colorful, beautiful illustrations I have ever seen in a children's book. My children are ages 4 and 9, and they both loved every page. The publisher recommended age is 4-7.

“Would a worm go on a walk, if you could lead him down the street? / Would he wear his tiny tennies, if he had two worm-sized feet?" So begins this humorous and imaginative picture book that introduces children to the idea that animals are uniquely created by a loving and wise God. Would a Worm Go on a Walk?, with its colorful, comical illustrations, is a fresh, fun way to teach young children that God created all things very good. He gave all the animals, and children, too, wonderful qualities and unique strengths. Children will giggle over the ridiculous scenarios presented, and they will come away with the knowledge that we all are loved and special.

My children laughed at the silly possibilities each animal faced, and they loved the colorful pictures on each page. The end of the book was such a beautiful surprise as it focused on how God creates each person and animal for a unique purpose, and we all have unique gifts and talents. This opened up a beautiful discussion for my children as we were able to share with each of them what talents we see in them. I was able to tell them all the ways that God has made them special, unique and beautiful. I know without a doubt that this book will be a huge favorite in our home for years to come.

Phil Wickham "Children Of God" Cd-a beautiful and intimate declaration of adoration and worship to our Heavenly Father


Hello Dear Friends! I was blessed with the opportunity to review Christian musician, Phil Wickham’s, latest CD Release, “Children of God”, and it far exceeded my expectations!  I had heard “Your Love Awakens Me” on our local Christian radio station and really liked Phil Wickham’s style, so I was excited when the opportunity arose to review his latest cd. I have listened to the cd on repeat since receiving it in the mail-it is simply that good. The opening Doxology calmed my heart and prepared me for a time of worship as I drove my children to church this morning. His entire album is a beautiful mixture of gentle worship music and adoration declarations to our Heavenly Father. My favorite songs on the album are Spirit Of God, Starmaker, The Secret Place, and Stand in Awe. Madison Cunningham joined Phil Wickham on “The Secret Place” and her voice mixed with his results in an absolutely breathtaking lyric. As you can tell, I had a very difficult time picking my favorites J. Very rarely do I find a cd where I adore each song and don’t skip over certain songs. This cd was an exception-every song is so very beautiful and drew me into an intimate time of worship. These songs will be a constant in our home for sure. I often listen to worship music on repeat while I sleep, and this will be my chosen playlist in the future. I strongly recommend this cd to anyone looking for a new worship cd. Phil Wickham’s passion for pursuing God shines through his lyrics and music. You can purchase his cd at the following online retailers:
