R and I have adopted a new routine into our daily schedule. And it has quickly become our favorite part of the day.
Click here for a link to the Elsie Dinsmore series and other wholesome books and activities for girls that promotes godly character.
Each night, after we all do our family Bible and prayer time, R and I will go into her room, curl up in the covers of her bed, and read a chapter of Elsie Dinsmore. It is such a wonderful series! It is so wholesome, sweet and innocent.
Little Elsie Dinsmore is a sweet little girl, who tries very hard to follow the Lord in everything she does. She has many trials in her life, and many temptations from others who scoff at her faith and call her weird. But through all her struggles, she perseveres in her faith and obedience to God, whom she loves dearly.
Since beginning to read about Elsie and her faith, I have had the wonderful opportunity to witness my own sweet daughter attempting to model herself after the godly character we read about in Elsie Dinsmore. These books have made her tender to the Holy Spirit, and it is so sweet to see.
I love our new special time together. It is so amazing how strongly our bond has grown after only a few nights of reading about wholesome, godly characters, and discussing how we can apply the Biblical principles we read about into our daily lives.
Speaking of which, I had better hurry up and publish this post... it's almost time for us to read the next chapter! :o)
