CBB Review – Jesus Sees Us Book and Doll set

jesus_sees_us_spotlight

Jesus Sees Us is a two-in-one pack for kids. Included are, first and foremost a doll of Jesus. The doll will easily become your child’s companion. Though this may sound bad, my youngest three had a few moments of “sibling rivalry” as to which would get to play with Jesus first. The doll is constructed with a soft body, hard hands, feet and head. The head is oversized and has an inviting smile. The doll’s design is intentionally made as welcoming to children so that, in combination with the storie … [Read more...]

Everyone’s faith journey is different. Some are raised Catholic and some, like myself, convert. Those stories of conversion are a testament to the richness of the Catholic faith. Leah Libresco’s is not your ordinary conversion story. Leah came to the faith after spending years as an atheist. Not just any atheist, mind you. Leah is a fellow Patheos blogger who just so happened to start her blogging career when she was an atheist. On her blog Unequally Yoked, Leah was a well-followed, educated voi … [Read more...]

CBB Review: St. George and The Dragon

st_george_and_the_dragon

My oldest daughter Katie just finished reading St. George and the Dragon by Michael Lotti. Here is her review:St. George and the Dragon by Michael Lotti is an exciting and creative retelling of the popular myth of St. George. This is not the story of St. George, instead it is a story - woven from the many myths and the few facts of St. George who lived in the Roman Empire in 300 A.D. This story shows the reader how real and cunning Satan is in the world of St. George, and that he is ever … [Read more...]
