Polite Moments



My friend, Amy, used to have a blog. I miss it so! I wish she would blog again because she is one of those people from whom I always glean wisdom. She creates exciting ways to teach her children things. Their toys are meaningful and have a purpose. She is a godly woman, wife, mother, daughter, and friend. I just love her.

Several years ago she gave our children the sweetest set of 5 books by Cathy & Gary Maldaner. They are called "Polite Moments". They teach every day life skills, how to visit other families, working for others, how to be a servant, and how to do things. Most importantly, they are based on Scripture. The stories are enjoyable and easy to understand. We love them! In fact, I love to take them on trips as a little devotional at night. You can order them here. They also make great gifts! In fact, I just stocked up on them as they are on clearance now!

How cute! I'll have to look at getting these for my daughters. My oldest already says "Yes, Ma'am" whenever you ask her a question, guess that's a start. :)

Speaking of...I have emailed you and asked you a few times if you got the information I sent you about the paperbits. I would love a reply! Thanks!

That's a GREAT start, Sweet Southern! Nonny, I have fixed the link. Thank you for telling me! Suburban Prep, somehow I have not received your email. I tried emailing you this morning. Let me know if you receive it!

Love this post - and what a terrific phrase... "Polite Moments" - it even sounds civilized. Wishing you a wonderful weekend and my best,
