Save More $ on Black Friday Deals!

I am SOOO excited!!

I love deals like I love banana slurpees, but I hate, hate, hate the crowds this time of year! That’s why I’m SO pumped about shopping online, and I’m especially excited about Usborne’s version of Black Friday – Book Friday! Take a look!


Deals start Thanksgiving night at 9 p.m. CST, BUT, I have two ways that you can save even MORE when you shop my super-special link for Black Friday Sales! Click here or watch below for details on exclusive savings from yours truly!

Are you pumped?! Yeah, me, too!! Okay, here are the extra ways to save when shopping my Black Friday Sales link:

  1. Book total is over $100, I’ll reimburse your shipping cost! FREE SHIPPING, friends! WOOT!
  2. If you order more than once, I’ll reimburse your additional shipping costs! More books will be added for Cyber Monday, so feel free to order away!


Like you, I’ll be making some sweet memories with my family this weekend, so I’ll get to your shipping reimbursements on Tuesday, Dec. 1st. Be on the lookout for an email from me on that date if you shop my special link for extra savings!

Books for the Break!

They’re coooommming!!!

Your kids will be home with you very soon, all day, everyday, for like two weeks! That’s right – Christmas break is right around the corner – are you ready??

This year, I’m going to be ready with awesome activity books that will keep them busy in a good way!

My Usborne Books & More Story

Many of you have been with me since the beginning of my Usborne journey – thank you!

I started Usborne Books & More in March of 2014, and it really has changed my life! God has used this business to grow me and push me out of my comfort zone, and I’m very grateful to Him for the blessings this business has given us. It hasn’t all been rainbows and sunshine, though; having your own business is work, y’all! It’s hard work sometimes and certainly a roller coaster, but I still wouldn’t trade this experience and the friendships I’ve made through Usborne for the world! 

Thank you for supporting my business, and here’s an update on where I am right now, almost two years in (crazy!). Click here or watch below!

If you’d like to learn more about what I do as an Usborne Books & More independent consultant and see if the book biz might be a good fit for you and your family, please click here or below:

Thanks again for being here, friend! YOU are appreciated!

I hope I can serve you in the future by either connecting you with that perfect book for your child that will light a FIRE in him and get him excited about reading, or by coming alongside you and equipping you with the tools, knowledge, and support to have your own successful business. However I can serve you, I’m here, friend!

You can teach your child to read – yes, YOU!


I know what a struggle it can be to teach your child to read, believe me!

I taught my oldest daughter, Mary, and it wasn’t pretty. And we did it before I knew about all of the wonderful Usborne phonic books that should would have just LOVED!

So, with Anna, my younger girl, I’m going to do it ‘the Usborne way’ and use our phonics books and reading sets! To start, we’re going through the ABC books (as I like to call them) and learning to recognize letters and their sounds. Take a look by watching below or clicking here!
