The heart project: a hearts and craft collaborative ebook

This is an amazing project put together by Jamie over at Hands on: as we grow and I am very pleased to be included along with all the other 70+ bloggers who have contributed over 100 heart ideas and activities for this very special ebook. Be sure to read this entire post so you can find out how to get your own copy of the heart book and join in on the many different give-aways and auctions going on between now and February 14th!

This ebook was started as a way for my blogging friend and colleague, Jamie, to do a little something special for little Ellie Jo (age 4) who has hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HSLS).

I hope you will join us in raising funds for the American Heart Association. Together, we can make a difference…

Here is just a small sample of photos you will find inside the heart project….

Deborah J Stewart

Every time I think I know everything I need to know about teaching young children, God says, "Hold on a minute!" and gives me a new challenge.

Let me tell ya...

With each new challenge that you overcome, you will find yourself better equipped and more passionate about teaching young children.

God didn't call wimps to lead, teach, or care for His children. Nope, he has high expectations, so get ready. You will have to give your very best but after teaching for over 30 years, I can tell you that it is a wonderful and rewarding journey.

Whenever your calling feels hard, just remember, 'He who began a good work in you (and in the children you serve) will be faithful to complete it.'
