Nurturing Spirituality in Children
Yesterday I finished reading Nurturing Spirituality in Children. I got it from Bookins.com. It wasn't really a "to read" book--more of an open-up-and-find-an-idea book, so I ended up skimming it by the end. It had some really good ideas. Each "lesson" used normal, household objects to make a spiritual point (i.e. blown up and then deflated balloons for talking about the spirit in the body) and was followed by an affirmation to use in daily life. My critique is that most of the lessons seemed identical, just with a different illustration--though there were 50 lessons, there were only about 3 actual concepts (it seemed): "What's inside matters more than what is outside," "be kind to others--like attracts like," "we are more than physical beings." So, in that sense, it could have been a little booklet explaining each concept and then just a list of different ways to explore them!
I like to read and I read a LOT. I learned to read when I was three and never stopped! This blog was created to share comments about the books that share my days. I'm the mother of two small boys. Most of the readings logged here were read as I nursed my younger one to sleep for bedtime or nap time.
This blog is no longer being regularly updated, due to other blogging projects that have more importance to me.
