    Sometimes as we grow older we look back at our lives and remembe

    Sometimes as we grow older we look back at our lives and remember fond memories of times spent with our family and our children as they grew. Those are often shared memories between our family as we reflect back on those times with admiration and love. Too often when life grows too busy, we forget to take time out of our day and plan for more of those memories we can share with our children or teens. We don't want to get to the end of our life and realize our time has run out and we never took the time to make plans. That is why I love the book, 101 Things You Should Do Before Your Kids Leave Home from David Bordon and Tom Winters.

    Each page offers some suggestions to help us make time for some incredible activities that are bound to create a lasting impression on the hearts and minds of our children and perhaps create their own traditions that they will continue on with their own families. This book was written to help you map out those precious years. It's filled with ideas and advice designed to help you maximize your ability to send your children out into the world with all the tools they need to succeed, while making sure you and your kids enjoy every precious moment. Here are a few of the ideas you will find tucked inside this cover:

    Plant a Family Tree

    Make Your Kids All Home-Movie Stars

    Conduct a Laundry Seminar

    Thank a Soldier

    Spend the Night in the Zoo

    Pick Up Trash in a Park

    Have a Paper Airplane Flying Contest

    Organize a Search for Teddy Bears in the Dark

    Trace Your Child's Silhouette

    There are so many more great ideas and values to teach your children that when they grow older, they will appreciate the time you spent with them, helping them become better people and children of God. What a wonderful gift this would make for new parents, grandparents or even teachers or youth group leaders. There is a powerful message behind all the activities and provides additional time to reflect and open communication lines with our children now so that it will hopefully last in the future. Even though my children are almost grown, I hope to incorporate these ideas with my future grandkids or any children that I have time to spend with like my nieces and nephews. I am hoping that these will create so many great memories that they will take them with them when they arrive on heaven's doorstep! For me, this one rates a 5 out of 5 stars!

    I received 101 Things You Should Do Before Your Kids Leave Home by David Bordon and Tom Winters compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Groups for my honest review. I did not receive any monetary compensation for a favorable review and the opinions contained in this review are strictly my own.

    I am not a super religious person, but I still see the value in teaching my children humanity and love. This book is very inspiring and is a great gift for a friend who just had a baby.
