The Staycation Jar: 200 Family Fun Ideas For Creative Meals, Main Events, Silliness, Love Projects

The Staycation Jar: 200 Family Fun Ideas For Creative Meals, Main Events, Silliness, Love Projects

Erica McNeal

What I absolutely LOVED about this book is that the activities allowed for actual interaction with family members instead of non-stop stimulation! This book has great ideas and allowed me to be inspired enough to have a StayCation that was meaningful, fun, AND relaxing!

Mamaof3angels

The Staycation Jar was inspired by our six year old daughter who asked us to help her raise money for families with sick children. The storyline and all ideas come directly from our recent Family Staycation where we filled our days with creative meals, main events, silliness, and love projects. All proceeds will go directly to Faith Like A Child, Inc.

I don’t know about your family, but we often have a difficult time planning a vacation. Don’t get me wrong I could organize an insanely awesome vacation on the cheap, in about three hours from top to bottom. This vacation would be filled with energizing experiences, down time, new activities, and awesome deals for our family to enjoy every day, complete with an excel spreadsheet. I’d already have the hotel picked out, airplane tickets purchased, and even a couple of freebies here and there. Yes, I am that person.

My closest friends know this falls into the “Research Queen” category of my life. Now, I would prefer to be a Queen of something way cooler, as “research” just sounds nerdy and un-cool… but I digress. However, if I am being completely honest, researching truly energizes me as I watch blank pieces of paper come to life, and plans come together.

While it isn’t for lack of trying, our family has a very difficult time predicting our ability to travel far enough in advance, where we are not slapped with last minute airfare prices, hotel spikes, or only being able to find hotels that are a bit sketch. Being a military family, with one of us literally defined by the medical community as “medically complicated” (that would be me), it is very easy for us to lose a lot of our flexibility in a very short amount of time.

In the past, my husband Todd and I have looked into and dreamed of timeshares, even sitting through presentations on a few occasions. The invitation to swim with dolphins, eat free chips and salsa, and all-you-can-eat ice cream (not together my friends) were definitely tempting. These events caused us to linger around, sometimes longer than the one hour-presentation we were anticipating, cutting into our current vacation time. However, again, due to our lack of flexibility and ability to pre-plan, timeshares are not for us at this time in our lives.

We also bought into the Buy One Vacation Get Three Free deals, only to find after we paid for them, they were not as flexible as advertised (or as we understood, perhaps there could be a very fine line between the two). We found there were so many limitations and restrictions, that after the three years expiration date hit, we could not find the time to utilize even one of these experiences.

This has been an on-going problem for our family for most of the nine plus years my husband and I have been married. But, we finally found a solution, one that actually is cheaper, and in our experience, was more enjoyable than some of the really nice vacations we have taken in the past. No hotels. No airplanes. No jet lag. Less stress. More spontaneity. No keeping two young children occupied for twelve plus hours of travel, while giving your spouse the death look that says, “We are NEVER doing this again!”

His Brain, Her Brain: How Divinely Designed Differences Can Strengthen Your Marriage

His Brain, Her Brain: How Divinely Designed Differences Can Strengthen Your Marriage

Walt Larimore

I love this book so much! As I was reading it I shared all the valuable knowledge I was learning with my husband, my mother and my sister. I never thought a book with scientific knowledge could be so interesting, but it really had me engaged! I found Walt’s and Barb’s observations on ‘his’ and ‘her’ brains to be so true! I laughed at some of the examples they gave as I found them to be true in my marriage too!

Heidi Helen

She reads people, and he reads manuals
He doesn’t ask for directions, and she doesn’t appreciate his advice
She is so mysterious, and he is so practical
He does not seem to listen, and she seems so emotional
The list goes on and on …

In a world where men and women are constantly told they are not different, His Brain, Her Brain shows couples what they instinctively know—men and women are different, and these divinely designed differences, when understood, make a marriage stronger and happier. Combining the latest brain research along with their experiences in over three decades of marriage and counseling, Dr. Walt and Barb Larimore explain how the unique design of each sex, particularly the unique brain and hormones of each, results in different habits, tendencies, and nuances of thought and action.

Work, Love, Pray: Practical Wisdom for Young Professional Christian Women

Diane Paddison

This is a book I will recommend frequently and share with my college age daughter. Although targeted for young Christian women, I believe Work, Pray, Love would be valuable for any woman looking to balance her career and family goals and navigate the workplace with integrity and grace.

Diane Rhodes

The number of Christian women in today’s professional workforce is increasing, and they are hungry for practical mentoring. They yearn to learn from someone who has climbed the ladder of success without sacrificing family or faith—something author Diane Paddison has done with excellence and grace.
The stories Paddison shares about her corporate, personal, and spiritual life, as well as the lives of other women like her, are both inspiring and instructive, providing on-target advice and concrete examples of how to succeed without feeling overwhelmed or compromised.
This is a working book for working women.
Full of practical, proven guidance that is both professionally viable and biblically sound, each chapter includes sidebars featuring pertinent facts from current research, resources relevant to the chapter’s topic, action-oriented ‘to do’ lists, and other interactive material. Chapters also include questions suitable for discussion, making it an excellent resource for use in small groups.
Work, Love, Pray is a valuable resource for professional Christian women, but it’s also a must read for the husbands, sisters, daughters, and friends who share their lives.

Could I Have This Dance?

Could I Have This Dance?

Harry Kraus

As a retired general surgeon, I felt the author was authentic in the culture of surgical training and it’s pitfalls. Very entertaining and suspenseful. Also cleverly done. I liked his recognition of the loss of quiet time and devotions with the stresses and demands of the training program.

Jacob W. Scheeres

You can’t dance this dance unless it’s in your blood.
Claire McCall is praying it’s not in hers.

Claire McCall is used to fighting back against the odds. Hard work, aptitude, and sheer determination have helped her rise from adverse circumstances to an internship in one of the nation’s most competitive surgical residencies. But talent and tenacity mean nothing in the face of the discovery that is about to rock her world.

It’s called the “Stoney Creek Curse” by folks in the small mountain town where Claire grew up. Behind the superstition lies a reality that could destroy her career. But getting to the truth is far from easy in a community with secrets to hide. As a web of relationships becomes increasingly tangled, two things become apparent. One is that more than one person doesn’t want Claire to probe too deeply into the “Stoney Creek Curse.” The other is that someone has reasons other than the curse for wanting Claire out of the picture permanently.

Somewhere in the course of pursuing her career as a surgeon, Claire lost touch with the God who called her to it. Now she realizes how desperately she needs him. But can she reclaim a faith strong enough to see her through this deadly dance of circumstances?

The riveting, emotional sequel to the best-selling Could I Have This Dance?

Claire McCall, M.D., is haunted by the question: Does she have the gene for Huntington’s Disease, the disease that disabled her father? This exciting sequel picks up with Claire moving back to Stoney Creek to work as a family physician and help her mother care for her disabled father. She rekindles her relationship with John Serelli and—just before she’s going to find out if she carries the HD gene—discovers an engagement ring hidden in his car. When John fails to “pop the question” before learning the results of the test, Claire believes he is only interested in marrying her if she does not have the HD gene. She runs away from him without learning the results of the test, or the strength of his love.

Claire copes with her romantic disappointment by plunging into her work. But a brutal rapist attacks three of Claire’s patients, just as each young woman is recovering from a recent accident or surgery. When Claire has surgery for appendicitis, she herself is attacked. Only her trust in God can keep Claire safe.

But the next death is the one that could shake Claire’s world to its foundation.

MagicChristian

Lindsay took to marriage like a starlet to stilettos, but her husband had a deeper love for his business. Left alone after his death, Lindsay must find out who she is when there isn’t a party to plan or another person’s life to be organized. Can she find her way Back to Life?

Lindsay realized when she married Ron, a man seventeen years her senior, that the odds were he’d see heaven before her, but she never expected to be a widow at thirty-five. She knows there’s too much of life remaining for her to just sit around in mourning, but she can’t seem to kick-start the rest of her life. Then unexpected help arrives…when Ron’s first wife, Jane, shows up at Lindsay’s front door.

The executor of their late husband’s estate, Jane is everything Lindsay’s not: strong, stubborn, independent…and a lot older. There are other surprises as well, including Ron Jr. (whom Jane insists is not “really” Ron’s son). But against all odds, a most unlikely friendship begins to develop—as each woman discovers how to own up to her past mistakes and to reevaluate what is really important. Told in the alternating voices of Jane and Lindsay, and featuring the return of many of the unforgettable characters introduced in The Trophy Wives Club, Back to Life is a lighthearted, relatable read about where to turn when life goes in a direction you never planned.

Words have power. Add a solid reputation behind those words, and they have the power to destroy.

It began with a lie.

Mac’s life changed irrevocably with a false accusation. Blissfully unaware of the carnage she left behind when she moved from Brant’s Corners, Savannah Forrester is back and when Mac sees her at church–with a boy–he wants answers.

For eight years he’s lived under the cloud of her accusations–without defending himself. He kept her secret. He endured the shame and the life-altering consequences.

Savannah can set the record straight. Mac says no. The ultimate question remains: what is best for Rory.

And who is Rory really?

WINGS OF MORNING is a terrific sixteenth century Scottish romance starring a delightful cast that brings to life the feuds and pacts of These Highlands Hills. The story line contains a bit of a mystery as to whether Iain really murdered Drummond and if not who did, but clearly the relationship between the laird and the amnesiac make for a fun tale as he wonders what will happen to them once she regains her memory.
