Managing Mealtime Madness

I'll just go ahead and say what everyone who's ever eaten with my family is thinking: I hate meal times. I do. I hate them. Christian culture makes meal times out to be this glamorized period during which smiling, laughing, families gather around a large table to share a hot meal and good conversation. That … Continue reading Managing Mealtime Madness

To My Children

I'm writing this in anticipation of the birth of my third child, a son. I have so many thoughts and feelings encircling my mind I was finding it truly difficult to sit and read my Bible this evening, so I decided to get them out. Most of my thoughts are centered on time. There is … Continue reading To My Children

My Top 5 Reasons for Choosing Home Education

It's my experience that many homeschooling families spend a lot of time defending (some well, some not-so well) their decision to home educate their children.

Obedience

Well it's good to be back home. We were finally given the green light to come home from the hospital and for the time being, Baby #3 is staying put. The whole experience was exhausting for me, even being on bed rest for 24 hours. I realized something though and God taught me through the … Continue reading Obedience

When God Disturbs Our Plans

Today was supposed to be a bulk cooking day to get some meals in my freezer for when baby #3 decides to arrive...  Instead, I've been in the hospital, trying to avoid preterm labor.  So far, still no baby. Which is great for my son- he needs to bake in there some more. But it's … Continue reading When God Disturbs Our Plans
