A Baby Shower for Jesus

Have you ever compared yourself with another mom? Have you struggled with feelings of discontent? Disappointment? Discouragement? Do you desire true contentment?

You are not alone! Be encouraged by the WeE-book™. . .
A Baby Shower for Jesus By Deborah Wuehler

Deborah shares her struggles with feelings of discontent, disappointment, and discouragement after a "perfect" baby shower at a mansion. When she arrives back home I couldn't see the counters for the ants, or the couch for the laundry, or anything else for the tears. Why can't my house be like theirs? Why can't I be like them? Join Deborah as she shares her journey through those feelings, and she ponders what His baby shower was like.

Find comfort and encouragement doing exactly what God has called you to do, Mom, in the pages of this WeE-book™ . . .

  • How can I handle disappointment?
  • How can I stay in tune with God?
  • Can I be the best homeschooling mom to my children?
  • Where can I find true contentment?

You can alleviate doubt by staying in tune to what God tells you to do with your children, and don't give in to comparisons. It's not how we school that makes us wise or unwise. It's comparing ourselves among ourselves that makes us unwise. −Deborah Wuehler

Take heart—you are the best homeschooling mom for your child!

Fall Harvest: Where's the Fruit?

Is your cornucopia empty? Why doesn't your family exhibit the kind of fruit you'd expect to see? What kind of seeds are you sowing?

These are questions that Deborah asked herself. She tells us: “Seasons change in our lives, the weather changes in our circumstances, and what grows in each season is different too—not only for us, but for our children as well.”
Gain new insight regarding the seasons of your lives and the developing harvest that's possible in each of us as you read the WeE-book™. . .

Fall Harvest: Where's the Fruit? By Deborah Wuehler Where is the fall harvest of God's goodness and righteousness in your heart and in your house? Go through each season/stage of development with the author as she shares her wisdom and experiences of what she has learned, and you'll see a pattern of things to be doing (or not doing) to ensure a good harvest in your children's lives and in your own heart. She promises to show you something optimistic and hopefully even beautiful.
In the pages of this WeE-book™, you'll find an abundance of wisdom, inspiration, and support:

  • Where's the Fruit in the Very Young?—We've sown into them day in and day out; when will we reap or even see any bounty? Prepare the soil; harvest time will come!
  • Overestimating—A true story illustrating what can happen if you overestimate. Don't let your child fall through the cracks.
  • Underestimating—Become intentional in the things you pour into your child. They are capable of learning so much!
  • Lazy Weeding—Faithfully and diligently “weed” that rich soil and be delighted with the outcome.
  • Where's the Fruit in the Elementary Years?—Learn from Sandy's wasted corn patch. When the soil is ready, water the hearts of your children.
  • Where's the Fruit Entering the Teen Years?—Is there a purpose for these turbulent years? Transforming hearts with God's Word.
  • Where's the Fruit in the Higher Education Years?—This teen-to-adulthood season is finally producing a visible harvest—and it's delightful!
  • Where's the Fruit in Us?—Don't just have the appearance of fruit in your life. Be fruitful and useful to the Planter!
  • Death Brings Forth Life—Die to become beautiful. Discover a precious promise from God's Word.

“May we be faithful to water our plants with Jesus, who is the Living Water, and in doing so, may we produce a harvest of much fruit.” —Deborah Wuehler

Ensure a good harvest in your children's lives!
