The joys and wonders of motherhood…

road_made_of_booksBooks make amazing gifts for kids – at this time of year or any other.

We’ll be walking that walk next month when we read 25 brand-new, never-before-seen books for Advent.  More on that later, but I can already tell you that I’m approaching that new tradition with a bit of trepidation because, let’s face it, not all kids’ books are created equal.

There are some books that we adore that our kids think are Yawn City.  And some books they want to have read to them again — and again and again – that for various reasons, grate on our more and/or less sensitive literary nerves.

To help you in your gift-giving endeavours, and to preserve your friendships with both the small recipients and their larger readers, I’ve compiled a list of 44 kids’ books that parents don’t hate.

The first three are my own personal favourites, with…

How did we start?

Do you know?

Humbally?, Yes.

Yes. I am, thankful.

Thankful for my Trials, my Strife,

For my Testimonies, My Life!

For my child and my education.

I am!,

Thankful.

How do we grow?

Do you know?

Upward? Yes.

Yes., I am, thankful.

Thankful for my community,

the village who has raised

a child, a young girl to a woman.

Have we forgotten?

We must be, thankful in order

to grow upward, upward to God?

Yes. I dream!

And for this, I am, thankful.

To be, thankful.

MEET WITH A RESUME WRITER


                                                                                     During the interview Selby and I discussed a professional resume’.Interview

She pinpointed minute details that I hadn’t noticed before. Such as ten points per bullet and font. Professions change and therefore your resume should change as well. I learned that your resume should fit the job you are seeking. These were the pointers she gave me.

  • Conservative style font
  • Single spaced
  • Headings no bigger than 10-12 font
  • Name ’16 font
  • Consistent layout
  • Traditional
  • Ten bullets per experience
  • Past tense
  • Optimal resume’.com

The resume’ looks better now in terms of format and style. I received more feedback from employers now that my resume’ is formatted correctly. We focused on grouping similar topics and experiences under one category. Repetition is not necessary when creating your resume’.

When creating a document I must pay attention to the minor details before submitting.

Selby also discussed with me what employers are looking for in terms of resume’ writing, interview skills and job performance. Employers want to be able to connect with their interviewees on an experienced and personal level. This is to maximize job performance from the employee. When going for an interview a potential candidate must possess the knowledge that you are not more than your employer and that you are able and willing, no matter what to receive that job position.

These were all wonderful tips and I’m glad to have received this information.
