    Faith and Character Building for Littles

    Welcome to another Wondering Wednesday podcast episode! In this audio presentation, Donna Reish (of Character Ink Press and Raising Kids With Character) answers questions about faith and character training for young children.

She then delves into laying some foundations with toddlers. Finally, she talks about the four places and times that Deuteronomy tells us to teach our kids God’s Word and ways: when you rise up; when you sit in your house; when you walk by the way; and when you lie down. She gives examples and activities for each time period—focusing on getting to our children’s hearts with unconditional love, intentionality, prioritizing, and selflessness.

    Donna Reish, author at Character Ink Press and Raising Kids With Character, brings you answers to your Independent Work Lists questions, or Daily Duties, as Donna likes to call them. In this episode, Donna talks in general about charts for kids’ daily independent work, including what kinds of charts, what order to put tasks, how to teach children to use them, and more. Then she delves into two age groups of chart users: elementary and junior high/high school. In those parts, Donna talks about how much help/oversight/structure a younger child might need in order to get his independent list done each day and then she branches out into helping our older kids become more independent and stronger in time management.

A podcast I have been longing for!

I LOVE podcasts and often search and search for ones that fit my lifestyle and interests. Mrs. Reish's Wondering Wednesday fits the bill. I have not listened to all the podcasts because I just found the podcast yesterday but I have listened to all of the ones pertaining to food. I am a mama of 4 boys and food is a large part of my day. I have always hated meal planning and I really, really hate a slow cooker. I have yet to find meals that taste good coming from a slow cooker. My method has always beento have a very large pantry and freezer filled with foods I bought on sale that I can then make whatever I am in the mood for that day. Mrs. Reish's method takes this concept to an even higher level by already having starters and cooked meats. I love this!! If I forget to take my meat out to thaw in the morning then I am rushing at dinner time. How nice not to have to worry about that because the meat is already cooked. I could literally have a meal on the table in 15 minutes! Yesterday I bought 25lbs. of meat that was very cheap and made 180 meatballs and cooked the rest. Next week I plan on doing chicken. I can't wait to share this podcast with my girlfriends. As a sidenote I just finished reading Cheaper by the Dozen to my kids and the efficency expert storyline of the book also had me really thinking. Thank you so much!
