Storytelling with purpose

We’re so glad you found us! Talya Press is one of our family’s homeschool adventures. Our mission is to share stories that encourage others and bring a smile to your face. 

NEW RELEASE!
I Saw Bigfoot

Bunny and Bear are best friends. The Northwoods is the perfect spot for the two of them to go camping, until Bear and Bunny see signs of Bigfoot! Will Bunny and Bear encounter Bigfoot on their backwoods camping adventure?

What is Storytelling With Purpose?

We hold to conservative, Biblical values which are reflected in our stories. We believe in protecting young minds, so parents can expect stories with lots of encouragement and a little humor on the side. No virtue signaling from us.

We were recently invited to write an article for our friends @thegrovestead who founded Gather & Grow Ministries with the intent to help other families build their own family economies. 

The Groves send out a quarterly newsletter the old-fashioned way via snail mail and it’s always a delight to read about the Grovestead happenings. You can sign up for free at their website gatherandgrow.us

While we were excited to share our self-publishing journey as a family, we were especially thrilled to come alongside such a worthy and timely ministry. 

(And guess what! Rory will be launching his second book this spring called Family Economy: Discovering the Family As It was Designed to Work.)

A peek into the art zone. Cue old movies from the 50’s and 60’s to add to the creative groove. Frank Sinatra, anyone?

What helps you get the creativity flowing?

Bring on the magic! Everyday is a good day to relax with a book. 
🎈
I’m finding myself in an unusual circumstance today. I have no kids around to curl up with for our afternoon story time!! Guess I get to read something from my own stack! 😲
🎈
Help me out! Should I grab a book from my learning stack or my just-for-fun stack?

Say YES to new adventures!
🤩
Reading books to your kids is a great way to instill a sense of adventure. 
🤩
Our library stack this month includes all kinds of fairy tales, tall tales and folk tales. Stories like Jack and the Beanstalk, The Gingerbread Boy, and Henny Penny bring me right back to my childhood while I get to rediscover the magic of these tales with my kiddos.
🤩
Give me one of your must-read childhood tales in the comments below.

Happy Birthday, Abraham Lincoln!

As one of the most influential American presidents, Abe Lincoln was a resolute leader with much wisdom. Here are FIVE quotes of words wisely spoken from Abraham Lincoln to ponder today:
1️⃣ “Whatever you are, be a good one.”
2️⃣ “Be sure to put your feet in the right place, then stand firm.”
3️⃣ “Sir, my concern is not whether God is on our side; my greatest concern is to be on God’s side, for God is always right.”
4️⃣ “Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”
5️⃣ “Courage is not the absence of fear. It is going forward with the face of fear.”

We’ve been loving on squash around here! 
🍂
Ever since we received a retired library copy of Sophie’s Squash this fall, it became a new favorite in the house. 
🍂
My first grader has this request on a daily repeat, so I just had to share the cuteness! Not only did we have to purchase our very own squash to dress up and love on like Sophie does to her squash Bernice, but now we even have to read the story to our squash!
🍂
➡️➡️ Swipe to see how big brother even gets roped into reading the story, which is extra sweet to find. And I wouldn’t be exaggerating to say we likely have the most cuddly squash in the tri-county area! 🤣
🍂
Sophie’s Squash by @patzmill is definitely a new favorite to add to our fall reads! 
🍂
👉🏼Check out the link in our bio to order your copy!!

Wishing you all a Merry Christmas from our gang to yours!
I have taken a loooooong, unplanned pause around here and have turned my focus toward being still and absorbing the “here and now” of my life... which isn’t always very still.😅
⏸
As we head into the final days of advent leading up to our Christmas celebration, I will continue to pause and be still. My two teens have finished all final exams, assignments, and projects for their PSEO college classes and are looking forward to a 3-week break. I wrapped up lessons with the younger three on Friday, so we will plan to play board games, build LEGOs, and read our favorite seasonal picture books as excitement builds for Christmas. To pass time in the evenings, we will finish up our family advent reading and then switch to an audiobook after Christmas. Of course, we will also be binge-watching our favorite Christmas movies. Last night we  made a couple visits to spread some Christmas cheer. ➡️➡️ Swipe over to hear what I mean!
⏸
All that being said, I wanted to just jump on and shout out a HELLO to you all!
⏸
What will your days look like leading up to Christmas?

Happy National Author’s Day to all you authors out there!
🖊 
Whether you are traditionally published, self published or unpublished, we know your heart and soul goes into your work.
🖊
Our journey in self-publishing includes two children’s books: Baby Adventurer by me (@alison.schmidgall) and Mr. Skandinoovy Takes an Exciting Trip to Florida by our daughter, Hope. ➡️ Visit our bio link to learn more about our journey!
🖊
Hope has another book that is close to completion, and Faith has a storybook she has authored that still needs illustrations. Both girls are taking PSEO college courses this semester, so the book progress has been very S L O W, but that doesn’t stop us from still setting smaller goals to meet. 
🖊
Regardless of where you’re at in your story-writing journey, we want to encourage you to KEEP GOING!

Your voice can make a difference. Make sure you take to the polls come November 3rd. Or, if you still have your mail-in ballot lying around, make a choice with your voice and drop it in the mail!
☑️
One thing I appreciated about having a mail-in ballot is the opportunity to show our kids what an official ballot looks like for a presidential election. Before I mailed in my ballot, I made sure to explain it to our kids, so they could see what it looks like to vote for the the higher elected leaders in our land. 
☑️
Our teens especially took an interest because they look forward to the day when they are 18 and can exercise their right to vote. Our oldest only missed it by one year! 
☑️
Anybody have a teen voting for the first time this year?

(➡️Illustrations pictured here come from the book I Voted and can be found in the Picture Books section in our bio link.)

“Which do you like better, apples or oranges?” 
☑️
I Voted is a picture book that explains the process of voting in a simple and unbiased way for kids to understand.
☑️
How great is it that my son can pick up a book to read to his younger sister knowing that he will be learning something new, too?
☑️
This picture book explains the concept of choosing first individually and then as a group. It begins with making simple choices and moves into more complicated decisions, such as an election.
☑️
➡️➡️ Keep swiping to see a few pages from this easy-to-read book.
☑️ I’ve added this book and more election books to the Picture Book section found in our bio 🔗. Go ahead and check it out. They would make great additions to your home education library!

Don’t miss this opportunity to make a choice. The right to vote freely in an election is a rare gift. Every voice counts!
☑️
We recently read I Voted, a wonderful picture book that explains voting in a simple and unbiased way for children. What a great time to teach our children that their voices matter.
