God has told us in Matthew 22 that we should love our neighbors as we love ourselves.
We, the human race, are a flawed people but we are also a beautiful & courageous people.
It is clear that we do not love ourselves well enough by…Continue

Do you love yourself? Don't just answer that question off the fly. Really put some thought into it like I did. For some of us this is an easy and bold YES or for the rest of us it’s a sad & resounding NO.…Continue
Homeschooling our five daughters (two of whom have special needs) has been the biggest undertaking I’ve’ experienced to date. It has required that I drastically adapt my responses and self-correct my inbred tendencies. It has required me to daily set fire to my selfish ways. It’s been a journey. Sort of like going up a rocky…Continue

The kids are doing well, the parents love the outcome, and all is well. But trouble does arise sometimes, even in the most dedicated and well-organized…Continue

"Mommy, what are you doing?!" my sweet 10-year-old asked me. Heistheway was very shocked that I was taking pictures of our messy dining table and kitchen.
Before I could answer her, she added, "Why don't we…Continue

A few of my friends have made comments, even slightly ridiculed us, when they see my teenage kids and myself talking to each other on Facebook. For some reason they assume we should not have a connection on Facebook. I think this is a dangerous position for parents to take and are very happy that my kids have me in their Facebook life.

Play is a very important aspect of a child’s life – their imagination grows, language develops, motor skills increase (both fine and gross), and play creates an atmosphere to practice character and real life skills.
But there is also an age appropriate play – and play grows up. It changes as our kids develop in their thinking, and ability to do things (fine and gross motor skills). Read…Continue

Though I have a general direction for my kids’ study these plans often get interrupted as we go down a rabbit trail.
I started this year with a well written direction for each term. There were specific things I wanted the kids to focus on. But within the first week a learning opportunity came up which was just too good to miss so we tweaked our plans. Then in term 3 I once again had an idea of study direction and the kids both mentioned a specific subject they wanted to study. So…Continue

Some homeschooling methods have their children studying independently very early on, but in our house we have had a balance between independent time and times where I teach and work along side of my children. Both aspects to learning are important. Read more...
I have previously written on the importance of the process over the product but this week I started to see the fall-out when that principle (which I hold to) becomes out of balance. There is always a balance – even when living according to principles. For example with character – we balance truth with love so we don’t hurt people’s feelings, we…Continue

Whoa! Look at that cabbage! How awesome is that? I just love the quote, “There are a lot of things that you can do outside that you can link to the curriculum." You homeschooling moms know this is so true! And gardening is such a fun way to include some science about plants and health…
I've been trying for a long time to find some way to earn some extra income from home and found a lot of junk.... filling out surveys or places that expect money up front. This one's different and a reputable business. If anyone wants to know more contact me :-D

I'm an old member here, whom has not been on much in the past 20months. My life has had some major, bitter"sweet" changes in that time. :-) I am proud to say that I am on the UP side of all of that now. I am currently down 93lbs. and 38in. (Depressive fat gone) God has been very good to me.

The public school system is set up for visual learners. Reading and writing are ways that visual learners do well. But what about if your child is more of an auditory or kinesthetic learner? If your child isn't doing well in school, it doesn't mean there's…Continue
