Nancy I. Sanders has a lovely weekly blog with inspiration for writers (or anyone.) Her blog combines a prayer and a photograph. It’s a wonderful way to take a time out from a hectic week for a bit of contemplation.  

Oprah now provides a reading list for children. The list breaks down the suggested book titles into age groups to help make selection even easier. This is a perfect plan to use when your child says, “but there is nothing good to read.” Now you have some ready suggestions at hand. 
And don’t forget online magazines for children as well–like Stories for Children Magazine and Launch Pad and My Light Magazine.
