About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Safe House by Joshua Straub Book Review

Safe House is about the importance of providing your child with emotional safety.  We often think about physical safety for our children and what we can do to protect them. Some homes focus only on spiritual safety all while forgetting the importance of emotional safety.  Emotional safety, more than any other factor, is scientifically linked to raising kids who live, love, and lead well.  And isn't that what we want for our children?

In this book, Joshua focuses on helping us:
  • Foster healthy identity and social development in children of any age
  • Win the war without getting overwhelmed in the daily battles
  • Discipline in a way that builds relationship
  • Understand how the culture is affecting your child and what you can do about it
  • Cultivate responsible, self-regulating behavior in your kids
  • Establish an unshakeable sense of faith, morality, and values in your home
  • Feel more confident and peaceful as a parent

My favorite chapter was on disciplining your child in a way that builds relationship.  I've already used some of Joshua's tips on Bradley and it has changed my perspective of discipline vs punishing.  I love how Joshua brings Scripture into this book and implements verses that go right along with the tips.
