Make this Summer a Time When You Do What Matters Most!

When my grandsons and I started working on the Life on the Goldilocks Planet books, we were surprised to see how many animals we found which we had not heard of before. We had heard of Axolotls, Porcupines, Clouded Leopards, Giant Pandas, and Kiwis, but had not heard of Scorpion fish, Eurasian Kingfishers, Stargazer Fish, Pygmy Marmosets, and while we had heard of hippos (of course), we did not know Pygmy Hippos were a real thing, and the same for Flying Squirrels. All of these animals are in the book - Scorpionfish, Clouded Leopards, Pygmy Hippos & More!

Fill Your Summer with Fun, Learning, and Time Connecting Together with the Life on the Goldilocks Planet Books

One thing we grandmas know (and grandpas/ parents, too) is we do not know what a day holds and we must make the most of the time we have. It matters what we do and say today. We are able to hand confident faith to the ones we love. We are able to help them become people who love, know, and walk with God because they know the "whys" - why they are able to believe God is real, and God and science DO go together.

Civets, Tree Kangaroos, Batoids & More! Will Help You Hand Down Confident Faith - What Could Be Better Than That!

When my grandsons and I started talking about writing this book series together, we talked about the animals/creatures we thought should make it into our books. My grandsons, being the sweet rascals they are, thought we should include a spider. They know how I truly am frightened of these creatures, but they told me God made them and there are interesting things about them. I was skeptical, but told them if we wrote a third book, we would put a spider in it. I didn't think we would write more than two books, but when it became clear it was time to work on book three, a spider had to be included. So I started looking for the least scary-lookin spider and found there were three - sorta, least scary-looking, and these three became part of book three - Civets, Tree Kangaroos, Batoids & More! Look at the animals/creatures you will find in this book . . .

Teach the "Whys" by Reading Eyelash Vipers, Pygmy Elephants, Pangolins & More!

Reading books to and with children is an important and essential thing for us to do - it helps children become people who learn more easily, helps them develop their vocabulary, prepares them to be people who read, strengthens their ability read, and so much more! Yes, reading with the ones we love is a powerful thing we are able to do to make a difference in their lives.

But, when the reading also helps us hand down a confident faith by teaching the "whys" - why we are able to believe God is real and God and science DO go together, then we have even more reasons to read and give books which equip us to do this. The Life on the Goldilocks Planet books do exactly this, so today I want to let you know about another book in the series - Eyelash Vipers, Pygmy Elephants, Pangolins & More! - look what you will find in it . . .

Get the Life on the Goldilocks Planet Books - they Will Help You Make a Difference

Two years ago my three grandsons and I began a project together. We wanted to learn about interesting animals and how they might help us know God is real and God and science DO go together. At first we thought we might just write two or maybe three books, but when the project was completed we ended up with twelve books! Each book has at least twelve interesting animals in it - many of which we had never heard of before! We included full-color photos, fun, interesting, and even surprising facts about each animal, Bible verses, quotes from scientists, and activities to help children, teens, parents, and grandparents engage with what they were learning in fun and memorable ways. These books - the Life on the Goldilocks Planet series - are available to help families learn together how our amazing world shows us God is real and God and Science DO go together!

Teach the "Whys" this Summer & Have Fun Doing So!

We know we (parents/ grandparents/ church) must teach the "whats" - what the Bible says and therefore what we believe, but just as important as it is to do this, it is equally as important to teach the "whys" - why we are able to believe God is real, the Bible is true, God and science DO go together, and God is good. If we do not teach the "whys" we run the very real risk the young people we love will turn away from their faith - as Barna's studies show this is actually happening.

Engage the Children You Love this Summer & Hand Down Confident Faith

There is strong evidence and are solid reasons for us to believe God is real, the Bible is true, God and science DO go together, and God is good - we need to teach these "whys" to the children we love so they are able to have a confident faith.

Hand Down Confident Faith!

I often write about how important it is for us as grandmas (grandpas and parents, too) to hand down confident faith to the children we love. I have shared how Barna's studies are showing more and more of the young people we love are turning away from their faith to atheism - if we do not want this to happen, then we need to make some important changes.
