Growing up with three sisters we read lots of fairy tales and dreamed up our own happily ever after stories! (My last name was always going to be ‘Richmond’ because I was going to be so rich. Deep, I know!)
It’s funny being an adult and watching life through my children’s eyes. They’re totally looking for their place in life. Exploring who they are and what they will be. Books are a major tool in igniting lifelong dreams! I am so excited to introduce you to On the Far Side of Poplar Pond, a children’s book about adoption and belonging!
Tina Turtle needs a home. The Duck family has more love they long to share. Watch and see how God brings these lovable animals together as a family in a unique way through the gift of adoption. Read together with your children and explore how families are created not because you look the same but because God perfectly orchestrates families.
This sweet story is not only awesome for friends that have adopted or are in the process of adopting (which is so unbelievably beautiful it brings me to tears), On the Far Side of Poplar Pond would be a precious gift for all families…stirring great conversations. Author, Anjanette Walchshauser has offered to giveaway a signed copy of her book to one of my readers…a link to the book is just below Anjanette’s cute profile pic. If you’re in the DFW area, watch Anjanette’s facebook page closely and meet her at a book signing coming soon!
To continue my story, my last name didn’t end up being ‘Richmond’ and I’m not a rich princess living in a palace! I work really hard to share inspiring DIY Home Decor Projects for you on my blog and I try to use beautiful photography so it’s fun to stop by, but it’s not all pretty here. I have toilets to scrub (oops…I mean I have toilets I should scrub), there are dishes to wash, and there’s always laundry sitting on my couch ready to be folded. Stud has been through two company restructures causing an immediate HUGE PANIC followed by lots of prayer and a trickle effect of freak outs. My sweeties aren’t always sweet….I’ll leave that for them to tell on their own blog someday. I have found that music soothes my soul during those moments that life is seeming anything but fairy tale – like.
Proverbs 7:3 says, ‘Bind them on your fingers; write them on the tablet of your heart.’ The last few years have had some really amazing highs and some major lows for me personally, but through it all, Seeds Family Worship, music that is completely scripture, and set to really cool music, has spoken God’s word for me in a gentle, loving way. Isn’t it funny when something you buy for your sweeties ends up being exactly what you needed! I have all of their CDs (except the newest one…it’s on my Christmas list) and we listen to it all the time.
I like Seeds Worship so much I wrote and asked if they’d be willing to giveaway one of their CDs on my blog and they said YES! Are you ready for a giveaway!?! The winner will receive Seed’s new CD ‘The Character of God‘ AND ‘On The Far Side Of Poplar Pond.’ Leave a comment with one of your hilarious childhood dreams or if you’d like a brief note with a prayer request and then enter to win through rafflecopter below. XO, Aimee
