Over the past 2 years of blogging, I have met so many genuine parents and teachers, and I want to give back to this community!
I know that many of you struggle to afford time and resources for creating a multilingual learning environment.
Some of you have shared that it’s not physical materials but social and emotional challenges that come with being a minority, let alone speaking a minority language.

Cultivating a daily habit of gratitude
Every morning and meal, my children and I start our day by thanking God for our blessings and asking for guidance with challenges.
Sometimes we talk about the messages that you have shared, and together we pray over them.
With my children, I’m learning how to develop a daily habit of gratitude, which I believe cultivates generosity.
I want to think about how we can help others more regardless of circumstance or cultural norms.
“It is more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:35

I also hope that recommending educational products can make life a little easier for your family, too.
