2021-2022 Homeschool Curriculum Picks

A hefty weight has lifted from my chest since purchasing and going through our curriculum for next school year. I had been praying about it for WEEKS and waiting for God's leadership and peace in my decisions. That looked like a lot of comparison shopping, and placement assessments, and whatnot.

Hidden For Our Good

I've been reading through the gospels and in Luke 18, I got to verse 34 and I found myself asking, "why?" Jesus had been up front and exceedingly clear with his disciples throughout the book.

I attribute this sense which I used to struggle to describe to the presemce of God leading me and carrying me through otherwise difficult things. My brain and body want to quit, but miraculously, I am … Continue reading Grief and Gospel Hope

Homestead Update

This is a brief one because we're busy busy around here. We're focusing attention on setting up the market garden. We had some compost delivered to speed up our soil ammendment process and we're building up the rows.
