Thank you for stopping by. It's my hope you find glimpses of my Savior interwoven thru my writings. I am the wife to one husband for over 25 years, a blessed mama to a dozen children, yes each born from me ~ two of which see Jesus face to face & ten at home, all of us yearning to see Jesus someday. We have been home educating for over 18 years with . . . well, another 15 years to go (the youngest is 3, the oldest 23!) I have walked through rejection, to continually learning I am CALLED, LOVED and forever KEPT by God - never, ever to be rejected by Jesus! (Jude 1:1) I've walked through deep sorrow to find that joy does come again, though the night may be long; I've witnessed God orchestrating miracles with my children still beyond my comprehension, & I am seeing new love forming as we begin a new road of older children finding life mates. My life has and is a journey, from the deepest, almost rock bottom pit, to stumbling through my faith and looking towards the ultimate climax of everlasting life in heaven. Will you be joining me here and there? ~ Loni

BOOK REVIEW: Help! Mom! There are Liberals Under My Bed!

The Pros: Written from a Conservative viewpoint for children at least age 15 or older, is a humorous story, seeing the Liberal side of how a business is supposed to be run! Help! Mom! There are LIBERALS Under My Bed! is about two children who want a swingset. Their wise parents want to teach them how to work for something, instead of just giving it to them. The good little conservatives have a dream of setting up a lemonade stand and then the problems they encounter in "Liberaland", from taxes to laws, to religious discrimination and even being told how to sell it, what to have in their lemonade, and what amount to sell it for! You might even notice some famous people mentioned in this book such as "Congresswoman Clunkton" and a very good cartoon picture of her who are a part of this plot!

The Cons: It is not for young children. Younger children would not have any idea what they are talking about. It makes for older children and especially adults, something humorous, especially if they are very conservative. It does not give "both sides" of the story, so in one sense, it does not allow for children to think out what side they are on. I also found quite a few grammatical errors, that has a homeschooling mom, I would not find this as the ideal for my children to read and learn from.

Concluding Thoughts: It would make a funny gift for someone that is either very conservative and would get a good laugh out of it - or maybe someone who is not conservative at all - but be ready for some wise cracks (or worse!)
