in the generous life

Years ago when my children were smaller, I would grab a book and read to them most evenings while Paul was working nearby on the computer. I have such fond memories of Gentle Ben, The Indian in the Cupboard and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. It sparked many a question and many a conversation (and occasionally a bit of tickling).

Why not pick a book and read it with your sweetie as a way of connecting during the busy holiday season? If you have kids, pick a slightly “younger” book, and make it a family happening.

What a fun way to slow down and build memories.

Reading will give you lasting pleasure.  Laura Bush

To Love, Honor and Vacuum: Have a Friend Getting Married? She Needs This! Get the newly married couple a copy of Sheila’s book as a wedding gift (The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex).


Stuck for ideas? Gifts for Him Here are some great ideas, but don’t forget “non item” gifts too! Coupons can help you offer “a backrub” or “an evening of playing your favorite game.”

One of our favorite read-alouds for this season was The Best Christmas Pageant Ever, by Barbara Robinson. It’s filled with humor, and you may find yourself sniffling a bit by the end. Don’t waste time on the movie – just read the book!
