How You Can Find Home When You Have Lost Your Way

A look at The Kingdom of Thrim

Have you every lost your way?

Have you had a time where you made a hasty decision?
Have you ever made financial decisions that were not good ones?
Do you listen to God on a daily basis?

A Purposeful Faith

We want our children to have a strong purposeful faith. We want them to trust and believe in God. We want to instil in them good values and faith disciplines.

Valuable Lessons

The Kingdom of Thrim is packed full of valuable lessons – from money, to listening to God, to being creative and using your God-given gifts – to being content with what you have. Help your child find his way.

Created for ages 6 and up, The Kingdom of Thrim brings colour and excitement to a child’s life through vivid watercolour illustrations.

The lessons learned are life lessons as one adult reader said:

“I needed this book. If you feel like you’ve lost your gift or wandered too far from home and aren’t sure if you can find your way back, you need it too.” Jeff Goins

Other happy readers have said,

“This is a delightful children’s book with a strong Biblical message. I loved the soft tone of the illustrations. It would make a wonderful story-book for those bedtime moments that are so important for bonding and teaching.” – Marcia Laycock

“Janis Cox is a beautiful storyteller and lovely illustrator and does an excellent job of presenting a story for both kids and adults that speaks to the very heart, no matter what age you may be. Highly recommended.” – Sally Meadows

Have You Hugged a Chicken Today?

Have You Hugged a Chicken Today?

I couldn’t resist sharing what happened when I visited a homeschooling family. I came to share Tadeo Turtle and do an art activity. However, the family shared their hearts with me – their turtle island, their chickens, their books about turtles and their wonderful smiles. We even had turtle races in the wet grass.

The morning flew by. Thanks to Kim for such an enjoyable day.
