Living books~ I would like to share with the children.
Little House Series, we have read the first two.
Bill Bergeson and the white Rose rescue. By Astrid Lindgren
There are some other books by Lindgren that really looks good. I would like to find them to share with children. Like Bill Bergson Lives Dangerously or Bill Bergson Master Detective. I was thinking my boys might really enjoy them.
Another good one would be~
Amazon Adventure By Willard Price
Now I just need to find a time to actually start reading to them : )

I've been wanting to write for a while now but it has been so hard to find the time. I love this time of year for being able to start a New Beginning, (I could live without the cold though) : ) Being able to set goals to help me reach my dreams and help me become a better mother and person all around. That is at least what I hope for at the beginning of January. : )
One of the books that I have started reading this year is Walking in This World by Julia Cameron. She is such an amazing writer and I have enjoyed all the books I have read by her.
One of my dreams has been to live a more creative life and to feel confident with what I do. As I have read the Artist's Way and Vein of Gold, which she also wrote, I have really come to feel better about myself as an artist.
An amazing experience I have had as I read her books was to realize that what I thought I wanted and what I thought my dreams were, were not really what I truly wanted. As I went deeper by doing the different activities and tools that she shares in her books I have been able to peel back the layers of what I thought the world or others thought should be my dreams. For example I have always wanted to be an artist, but I thought I needed to be an exceptional "watercolorist" but I'm realizing I love textiles: yarns, and material, etc. I still love to use watercolors but I don't need to be exceptional. : )
The one thing I'm coming away with as I begin this new year is the need to believe in myself -- to believe that I can accomplish my goals and that I can reach my dreams. It is possible. Maybe at times it seems too hard by myself but I need to believe that I'm not alone and that Our Heavenly Father cares and will help me along this journey. I don't have to do it all by myself but simply do my very best.
If this can apply to me I know it applies to every one else. We are not alone as we make this journey through life -- we can have help in reaching our dreams and accomplishing our goal.
