I love to keep a variety of books going at one time. I keep one on my nightstand, another on the end table in the den, another in my purse. I also read chapter books aloud to the kids or listen as they read them to me. Plus there are the books my husband reads aloud to the family and audiobooks we listen to in the car.
That’s a lot of books in play at once — which means I need a lot of bookmarks to hold my place in each.
I’ve been running shy on bookmarks lately, so I created some new ones to share with you.
The Bible verses quoted on these are some of our family’s favorites and seem particularly fitting during the difficult days our country has faced in the past couple of months. I hope you’ll find as much comfort in these words as I do:

Would you like to read, but can’t find time to do so? Then I’d encourage you to try listening audiobooks instead. New customers can get two free audiobooks from Audible when they sign up for a free trial.
Do you enjoy reading books hot off the presses? Then pre-order my new book(s): Sit Down & Eat and Count Your Blessings. The official release date for both is Saturday, October 21, and I’m so excited to share them with you!
Count Your Blessings is a devotional journal designed to cultivate a spirit of thanksgiving in your heart — not only in the month of November, but all year long. Filled with writing prompts, word studies, scripture verses, and beautiful vintage clip-art, you can use it to remember the Lord’s mercies and recall His faithfulness to you in the past and, by doing so, to be encouraged to trust Him with the future.
Sit Down & Eat is designed to help families connect around the dinner table. It’s full of ideas for incorporating kids in food preparation, for drawing them into meaningful conversations at dinnertime, for celebrating special occasions, for making ordinary occasions more special, for working together during cleanup, etc. Plus, all the recipes included in the book are quick, easy, and delicious. If someone as culinarily challenged as I can make them, anybody can!
