    How fun to see the different blogs! Do you know if anyone in the Babywise blogging "network" has a series of posts / anything focused on Gary and Anne Marie Ezzo's "Growing Kids God's Way" materials? We are currently taking the class and would love to read some posts (if they exist) as we are taking the journey through the class ourselves.Thanks to all the bloggers for their hard work!

    I am not positive Marie. It is possible Hank or Maureen have some.
