Raising Word Lovers

Are you overwhelmed by all the options when you’re looking for books to read?

Do you want to instill 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.
