Are you overwhelmed by all the options when you’re looking for books to read? Do you want to install a love of reading in your children? Are you a lover of books and words? Hello, I’m Gretchen. I believe our love of words comes from The Word. And when I write, I feel His pleasure. My husband Merritt and I work together to instill in our children a passion for good books. From audiobooks to picture books, fantasy to non-fiction, I share our favorites here. Join us in Raising Word Lovers… Join the Word Lovers community!
