My Children’s Book
The Five Grannies Go to the Ball was written about a dream I had. The five grannies (based on real people) have much to teach and more to learn is this fairy tale with a hint of Cinderella mixed in. Many of the illustrations are left black and white, perfect for coloring.
Amazon customer review: What a precious read! As I get older, I can relate to the youth the grannies feel in their minds. There are great lessons to be learned through this book as the older women teach the younger women. They saw the potential in each of the younger women and came alongside them to make them feel special. I am so excited that I have two of these books because one is going to my own granddaughter. The illustrations were beautifully done and captured the personalities perfectly!
Scraps of Wisdom: All I Needed to Know I Learned in Quilting Class is dedicated to my quilting teacher who died of breast cancer. She taught me a lot about quilting, but also taught me about life and being a good Christian woman. Her lessons are presented here in this short book along with advice on applying them to our lives, both spiritually and physically. Bible verses are from the King James version.
Amazon customer review: Scraps of Wisdom by C. S. Kjar is a beautiful little book showing how lessons can be learned in the most unlikely of places – at the sewing machine. I am not a quilter but loved learning the details that go into quilting. For me the treasure was seeing how this author tied in the sewing lessons into Real Life Application Lessons and then provided Spiritual Lessons through the sharing of Bible verses to back it all up. What a treasure this book is, a gift any woman would enjoy!
