Make A Joyful Noise

I don’t know about you, but in my church, we have a lot of singers. A lot of people who enjoy reading Psalms and poems. And a lot of people who love to get up and share their stories of salvation, grace, and triumph. Which is pretty amazing since Psalm 100 is all about making a joyful noise unto the…

Embracing School Choice

As a homeschooling family, we obviously think homeschool is a good choice. And I wholly approve the parental right to determine what each family thinks is best. That being said, I don’t sit here and think that homeschooling is the best choice for every family. I think it’s a choice parents need to make themselves. Taking a Different Path When…

When Nothing Goes Right

Do you ever have those days. When you have all these plans and ideas and goals for the day, but they kind of blow up in your face? I’m in one of those. Right now. And it’s exhausting. They started out on a bad note. I over-slept. My daughter woke me up to tell me that my son’s ride was…

Children Are Drawn To Chaos

I don’t know about you, but my children seem drawn to chaos.

Finding Balance In A Chaotic World

Finding balance can be a tricky thing, and for everyone it’s different. For our family, balance is fluid because what works to balance us today is different than yesterday, and will probably be different tomorrow. Being fluid, however, also makes it that much harder to achieve. Figuring It All Out One of the things I have learned to do in…

Stepping Out In Faith

Stepping out in faith. I hear it all the time. It’s a common phrase used by my church and it’s members. It seems so simple too – just four little words. But, and this is a big but here, do any of us really get the meaning behind it? What Is Faith? Faith is an interesting word. It’s used a…

The Value of Chores

A Taboo Topic For reasons that I simply do not understand, the idea of childhood chores has become something of a taboo topic. Parents these days are reluctant to assign chores to their children, and children are missing out on valuable lessons and life skills. I am not sure when chores became a bad word. Something that is rarely discussed…

Homeschoolers For Life

The Decision It was almost three years ago that my husband and I decided to homeschool. We had three kids in public school, and the youngest was just an infant. I was a stay-at-home mom so I had the time to go with the desire. I began researching state laws and curriculum. The laws were easy enough to find and…
