Ok. I have to be honest. I am a Francesca Battistelli fan so when I came across Kate Battistelli’s book Growing Great Kids I immediately made the mother-daughter connection and knew that I just had to read it.
Boy am I glad I did!
Of course, considering Francesca’s witness for Christ and her talent, there is no doubt that she must have been raised by awesome parents, right? She definitely was, but the connection is much, much deeper.
In Growing Great Kids, Kate Battistelli offers a large part of herself, her family, and her walk with God to illustrate what it means to be a Christian parent. She goes a step further and, in my opinion, has now left a written legacy that we (other Christian parents) can follow to be the example God intends for us –not just as parents but as people in this world.
Kate advises readers to “partner with God to cultivate His purpose in your child’s life” and that is exactly what I will recommit to do.
I won’t give away too much, but… I especially love the “Questions to Think About” where we readers can look deeper inside ourselves to question our role, our application of biblical principles, and the importance of Christ in our families. Two specific questions that hit home (and might for you, as well) are: “what are the absolutes in your house?” and “what are you modeling?”.
As a Christian mother, it is important that I make the absolutes clear and to model Christ’s example in every area of my life. Certainly, I fail in many areas, but as Kate lovingly illustrates: we go through “seasons” and it is in the myriad of seasons that we grow both as parents and Christians, and it is also in the seasons that we learn to interpret God’s seasons in our child’s life.
To quote Shelly Ballestero, author of Beauty By God, “Growing Great Kids [is] an inspiration to all who have the privilege of raising God’s children”.
Thanks, Kate, for allowing your readers to get to know you and your family on a more personal level and, most of all, for reminding parents just how important our roles are in molding today’s child to become tomorrow’s Godly adult.

When Kent Breazeale agreed to offer his short story for free on Smashwords, I knew readers would take to his voice and style instantly. What I didn’t expect was that within two hours after “going live”, The Chosen One would become a readers’ favorite.
In only the way that Kent can do, the voice depicted in The Chosen One is richly southern, set in a period when things were different –times were hard and whites and colored didn’t mix, much less become family.
In less than 2,900 words, The Chosen One connects the reader with the innocent hope of a child, unconditional love, loss, and finally acceptance as a young disabled boy comes to realize that blood is not always thicker than water.
I can only imagine how readers will receive Kent’s full-length novel, The Willmakers, which will soon be released for Kindle, Nook, and most e-reader platforms. RWHI is actively marketing the print rights to the novel.
Be sure to drop by download your free copy of The Chosen One. You won’t regret it!
