(We're gearing up for The PURSE-onality Challenge holiday edition"A Holiday-Ready Heart"–in October! Stay tuned for full details...Warm-Up Week starts September 24!)

September 5-23, I'll be blogging through Mary DeMuth's soon-to-be-released book Everything: What you Give and What you Gain to Become Like Jesus. Each week, I'll be giving way a copy of the book. You can enter the drawing via the Rafflecopter at the end of each Everything blog post!

In addition to the "test," you'll find "PURSE-onality" application at the end of each of the 21 Ways to Connect With Your Kids. Here's a sample of the "PURSE-onalities" are applied at the end of the Family Fun Night chapter:

Here's a quick glance at part of the Table of Contents. I can't wait to sit down and read the whole thing, cover-to-cover!  (Yes, even though my "baby" is about to turn 20!)

21 Ways to Connect With Your Kids is available on and
