Five of them.
I’m serious! We have five tweens and teens in our home right now.
Tweens are kids ages 8 to 12 years old.
Teens…well, I’m guessing you already know about them.
And since we have a 10 and 12
…and 14 and 16
…and 18 year old
in our home this Christmas.
You can imagine I’ve been thinking hard this year on what would be a wonderful and wholesome gift for each one. Both boys and girls.
And since some of you might be searching high and low for the same kinds of gifts, I’m passing on what I’ve come up with for this year. I’m actually quite excited about each one of these options!
Also, if you know me, they happen to be rather affordable.
Which is important to me too.
Now here they are…..

As a teen, I was always torn whether I should write in my Bible..or not. On the one hand, I wanted to emphasize those passages that stood out to me and to make notes on others. But then again, it started looking rather “messy” rather fast. So I LOVE this idea for a Bible – to actually design a place to write that is intended for notes and thoughts. Available–>HERE
