What do you do when you’ve been discharged from the hospital and you have a home full of hungry children? You open your pantry into a pop-up restaurant of sorts, where all food is served for free and to the community. Justine Simmons is one of the few people in East Oakland, California, who hosts such food-giving pop-ups, called Free Kitchen, in her home.

New

Justine Simmons is the costar of the blockbuster MTV show Run’s House. She and her husband, Reverend Run, aka Joseph Simmons—one of the pioneering founders of Run DMC—live in New Jersey with their children.

This book gave me a whole new respect for Justine Simmons and the role she plays in what seems to be a very healthy family. It was so wonderful to me to find a book that not only encompasses almost every form of analternative family, but for sending the message that each child's situation and/or concerns are "normal" too! Bravo....I actually have this book on display in the room I have prepared for my adoptive son/daughter coming soon! Thank you Justine! (Source: www.amazon.com)

Book

Simmons, wife of Reverend Run (a founder of musical group Run DMC) and costar of the Simmons family's reality series on MTV, Run's House , has penned a Q&A-style picture book to offer children a loose template for dealing with issues...

This book was a must for me, and I bought one as a gift for my best friend, too, after hearing Justine Simmon's had written a book. I love the show about her family, Run's House, on MTV. They are such a sweet, loving family. Parents who are faithful to God and VERY intertwined into their children's lives, as they SHOULD be. They are so inspiring as parents, I had to read what Justine would have to write to children. It's a sweet little book. Nothing out of this world, very easy-to-understand questions kids would have for God. My girls live in such a sheltered world - reading about some kids who are less fortunate, who may live in a one-parent household or other hardships they have to overcome, it was interesting to see my kids gain that perspective from a book. Also, super bonus that a few of the illustrations have Diggy or Russy (can't remember which one - but Justine's sons) in them! (Source: www.amazon.com)

I LOVE this book "God Can You Hear Me?" It provides a way for children to understand how simple it is to talk to God! It also provides them with lots of real life scenarios in which children might need help and understanding. It's never too early to start talking to children about God especially in this day and age where so many events happen that cause even us adults to question "why?" and this is an excellent way to help children understand that God is someone who is always available to both help them and listen to all of their questions and feelings.
