Chick-fil-A to host mother-son 'Date Knight'

ATLANTA -- All of the Chick-fil-A restaurants in metro Atlanta will host a special mother-son Date Knight on Saturday, Apr. 28.

The Date Knight format will be similar to that of the franchise's massively popular Daddy-Daughter Date Nights. It will give mothers and sons a special chance to enjoy some quality time together.

The event will have a medieval theme, hence the "Knight" part of its title.

"One of Chick-fil-A's goals is to promote community connections and enrich the lives of everyone we come in contact with," Robin Lomax, Chick-fil-A area marketing director, said in a statement. "We understand the importance of mother-son relationships and want to encourage local moms to come to Chick-fil-A, enjoy their sons' company over a meal and have fun."

Wonder & Think Wednesdays: Heaven is For Real-For Kids Book Review

Wonder & Think Wednesdays: Heaven is For Real-For Kids Book Review

 

After hearing several rave reviews, [as well as having my own peaked interest from skimming through this book in the grocery store aisle, lol] I was excited to finally read, and have an opportunity to review “Heaven Is For Real-For Kids.”

 

Let me first start off by saying, in my opinion, no book is more honestly reviewed than through the eyes of its intended audience. In this case, my co-reviewers were my two little guys, ages 3 and 4.  So this evening before bed, I called the troop in to snuggle up to the E-book version on what my youngest refers to as mommy’s “pomputer.” 

 

Immediately, their interests were sparked by the cover page that showed the happy faced little boy and author of this amazing true-story, Colton Burpo-who, recalls his trip to Heaven after slipping into Acoma during surgery, and shares his out-of-this-realm journey with his parents after his “return.”
