ABOUT THE AUTHORS:
Stan and Jan Berenstain introduced the first Berenstain Bear books in 1962. Mike Berenstain grew up watching his parents work together to write about and draw these lovable bears. Eventually he started drawing and writing about them too. Mike is married to Andrea, and they have three children. They live in Pennsylvania, in an area that looks a lot like Bear Country.

As I said last week, my boys really enjoyed these books. This one, however, was our favorite of the two. To teach Brother and Sister Bear about courage in the face of bullies, Papa Bear reads to them the story of David and Goliath. Pay dirt! A definite winner in the Woodside household, as I've always loved this Bible story and all of my boys do too.
This is a wonderful book to feature today as today is my 19th wedding anniversary. It takes courage to be married that long. I truly believe that. Marriage brings its own ups and downs to notion of living. he years are filled with missed expectations, hurts, and disappointments. They're also filled with tremendous joys, marvels, and continued amazement. All of that requires a courage that I fear many either don't have or aren't willing to dig deep enough to find in this day and age. Anyway, I'm glad Hubby and I both have found the courage--it's definitely an individual thing--to love and live together for this many years. We draw on each other's faith and strength, and I pray we have many more.
Happy Anniversary, Babe!
Peace & Blessings,
Stay focused. Be deliberate. Believe.
