Baby Ready Bundle – Save 30%
And in case you missed it last week, I’ve launched my first book: “Baby Ready – preparing for and adapting to life with baby“. I’ve decided to extend the 30% off coupon for the book and all the FREEBIES that go with the book (code: Launch30) through the end of April. The bundle includes “Baby Ready” and FREE Nursery Wall Art, Nursery Planner, 40 Prayer Cards, FREE book for Dads, and FREE Guide for Entertaining Babies. Normally the book and all the printables are $7.99 but for this launch you can get everything for $5.60. The Baby Ready eBook bundle and printables also make a wonderful Baby Shower Gift! I hope you’ll check out the book and all the FREE printables on my Baby Ready Launch Page.
FREE Children’s Easter Book
I’ve also written a FREE printable children’s book about Easter called, “The True Meaning of Easter.” It’s based upon the greatest story of hope ever told and focuses on how much God loves us. I wrote it for my two and four year-olds and they LOVE the story. Best of all – it’s FREE for subscribers. If you like the book, you’ll also want to look at the Easter Activity Book and Printables Pack, a 60+ page printable set, I created to go with the book. If you’d like to celebrate Easter with some fun activities that center on the true meaning of Easter, make sure to check out my Easter Activity Book and Printables page.
If you’d like the FREE Easter book, “The True Meaning of Easter,” sign up to become a subscriber and get a free copy of the book for your family.
