    Homeschooling in the New Year!

    It’s that time of year, isn’t it? Have you been thinking about your plans for the new year? I sure have. I know exactly what I am NOT going to use next year! That’s the easy part right? Though a few things will get scratched from our list, there are a few things we used this year that […]

    Teaching Homeschool Gratitude and Thankfullness

    It seems that God is really trying to tell me something these days… everything that I look at and study has to do with finding joy and freedom in Him. For a while, it seemed as if that was elusive to me… that I was stuck in the circumstances of raising 6 crazy children and […]

    Praise Your Kids!

    We can never tell the eternal impact that words of praise, affirmation, or encouragement may have to someone who is struggling. Over the years, I’ve noticed the difference that it makes and believe that praise is a missing ingredient in many homes today. In my days as a private school administrator, I cannot guess how […]

    Finding Contentment in the Every Day

    Contentment is a choice, not a spiritual mystery… … an act of faith. Faith that God has given all that He wants for us to have at this present time. You ask why would god want me to be in the difficult situation that faces me now? or Why would God let our family suffer in these […]

    Celebrating Christmas

    I love the fact that you can go to public department stores this time of year and hear hymns being sung… Christmas hymns that is!   I was thinking today of those good old Christmas hymns… many of them have such a great message. Enough that they are a witness to the unconverted… even convicting to those […]

    I wonder sometimes if we really understand how to educate.  Isn’t it funny how a comment here, or an action there can get you thinking about something so off the wall?  I am beginning to believe that playing for children or enjoyment for adults is connected to learning.  What motivates?  I am sure our desires […]

    Make Back to School Easy

    It’s always tough trying to find your routine. Every year when we start back to school, it’s always a little rocky for the first few weeks. But, since most of us are creatures of habit once those new things become habit everything goes a bit more smooth. Everyone has “their way” of doing things, and […]

    Back to Homeschool Tips

    We’re all different, we’re all unique, and we are all precious in God’s sight. Yet, we all have different abilities, different strengths, and different lifestyles. Even within our niche of homeschooling, each of us has differing needs. From one mom homeschooling two children and teaching them every subject, to that mom (most often me) homeschooling […]
