Well, readers, we have had a little turnabout. The blog hop is going to hoppen over on my other blog, not here! It seems the URL for my other blog was put into the hop by mistake. So rather than make a big fuss and everyone have to make changes, I will make the change.

Not a real big fuss. But I had wanted to feature the newest children's book Sassy Pants Makes Amends and this new site that I am constructing to be a safe place for kids and a resource for parents! However, I have come to the conclusion that the Lord is indicating that this was my idea, not His. We go with His ideas! I will be referencing this site so we will have some visitors during the hop!

For visitors during the hop there you have the opportunity to enter a drawing. The prize is either a set of the two Sassy Pants books; a value of $20 (because postage is so crazy expensive) OR, a set of the burden bearing books valued at $30. After the drawing I will contact the winner to find which set they would like and send them off. Just like that! You see the "Giveaway" button to the right on the other blog. You can go over there by clicking here. Then fill in your name and a working email address and it goes off to the Rafflecopter who guards everyone's information. That is where I will learn who is the winner on the 15th.

Would love to have you make comments and/or follow this blog as well. But commenting or following in no way affects the drawing. The blog hop will be here before we know it. Such fun to hop from blog to blog and find out what all these wonderful authors are up to!

A big thank you to all those who have been stopping in to watch as Sassy Pants & Co. is built, bit by bit! Molly, Sassy Pants and I are looking forward to chatting with you all.

Blessings, Carol

Sassy Pants Makes Amends

Meet Sassy Pants, the reformed pig! She was just let out of the Tate Publishing warehouse today. You will see her in bookstores and online outlets like Amazon from today on! Just go over to the right side of the blog and click on the chicken (her name is Maude) and that will take you to a short video of this book! This is what the cover looks like when you go to the book store.

A bit about the book:  
Sassy Pants’s bad behavior pushed everyone away in the first story. A close encounter with an electric fence broke off the stone that had been forming around her heart; it helped her begin to notice and care, but too late. No one trusted her.
How do you fix a friendship when you are the one who broke it? Old Clyde knew a way. He asked little Molly lamb to “be friendly” even though she didn’t trust Sassy Pants. The two of them put their heads together—but not too close—and came up with a plan to make amends,—to think of something that was important to Gerald, Maude, and Kitty Cat and make it become important to Sassy Pants too...something that would go way beyond sorry and give the offended friend reason to trust her again. Find out how Sassy Pants was able to repair the friendships she broke!

 Learn with her how to fix a friendship when you are the one who broke it. Find out how Sassy Pants learned to apologize, ask forgiveness and make amends with the help of two special friends. Making amends is not easy, but having friends is worth all the hard work! 

 Talking Points For Sassy Pants Makes Amends
  • Words can hurt
  • Actions can hurt
  • What an apology is and what it does 
  • Why we forgive and make amends
  • How we make amends
  • The rewards of amends
  • How to honor one another

Let me know how you enjoyed the story...or post a review on Amazon! Last one to Amazon is a rotten egg!

Ha, ha! Happy reading!
