All Over the World (comment to win)


I received this book from Deseret Book a while back...It's called "I Believe in Jesus Too" by Mark S. Nielsen.  It shows how children all over the world go to church, take the sacrament, get baptized, participate in family home evening, and ultimately believe in Jesus.

I'd like to send you my copy of this book...so if you'd like to win it, please tell me what you'll be doing with your children this summer...It can be vacation plans, family traditions, summer camps, chores, chilling out, or even a course of study.  Just let me know in a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win.

I'll announce the winner (chosen randomly) tomorrow morning.

Please remember to leave your email address and/or blog address when you comment.

Have a great day!

  21. My children are almost all grown, but this summer my mom and I will have 6 of my nieces and nephews with us all summer long.  They range in age from 4 to 13.  We will begin the day with breakfast, clean-up and then devotional.  After that, I will take the 4 oldest individually and help them review their math and spelling.  In the meantime the others will read and practice piano.  After lunch we will go outside to play and to work in the garden.

  26. Looks like a sweet book!  We are planning a "home day camp" program for part of our summer using themes.  Our camp is called the "MTC" or Mom Training Camp.  My two youngest boys, 8 & 10 year old, are the participants, and my 14 year-old daughter will be helping to put the program together as a young women project.  We also try to do SQUIRT (Super Quiet Un-Interrupted Reading Time) to keep up with their reading.  We'll be making short trips to visit family, and a camping trip or two.  Plus lots of Cub Scout stuff!  I want to keep the TV and computer time to a minimum.  My oldest son will be working at a candy store this summer.  So fun! He usually works outside, so this will be a big change.

    P.S. Congrats to your new graduate!
