My friend Angie just forwarded me information about a new book, Raising Godly Tomatoes. I was delighted when I went online to explore the product. The author, Elizabeth Krueger, actually has a lot of the text online, as well as tons of good parenting wisdom. I particularly appreciated reading these topics:
Tomato staking as a parallel to raising children
Crying and whining (a huge struggle with my #2 child)
Elizabeth is a storyteller with lots of practical ideas. And key scriptures to cling to during our parenting journeys. If you have a minute for a cup of hot cocoa, sit down and read her online excerpts for a spell. You will be wiser for taking time to ponder her words.
