There are many reasons why I'm not a perfect mom, and why I won't hold out hope that someday I'll suddenly become that mother who 'does it all'. You know the kind of mother portrayed in Leave it to Beaver. Perfectly dressed, make-up on, and not a hair out of place. The house would always… Continue reading Why I’m Not a Perfect Mom
Each morning this week, after our one-on-one studies are completed, my kiddos and I take a break for some snuggles on the couch.
Homeschooling is a very new adventure for my family, and everyday we find something new to learn about it. We spent a month working on a unit study of volcanoes and working on a lapbook of them. That seemed to work well. During that time my daughter also worked through Life of Fred Butterflies for… Continue reading The Well-Trained Mind
Darkness was overtaking me and I felt like I was drowning in a pit with no way to free myself. I needed help in a BIG way.
The public school here has been in session since the 5th, and every day I am thankful for the Lord placing homeschooling on my heart. I'd love to say each day is a picnic on the beach (one where sand doesn't get all up in your potato salad), but really, what part of life ever… Continue reading Joyful Hearts
What do you do when your world crumbles and turns to dust? When everything you've ever known, or thought you knew is destroyed by actions out of your control? Recently, this happened to my little family. In a big, big way. Our lives were turned upside down by the selfish and unconscionable actions of another… Continue reading When Your World Crumbles

Somehow, I've managed to fall behind, and unless I give up sleeping I won't be finished by that day now. Do I feel discouraged by this revelation? Thankfully, not anymore. There was a… Continue reading Bible in a Year
Hey guys! In the coming months (dare I hope, years!) you'll be noticing some changes on this blog. Granted, so far it's pretty new so there isn't really a set standard. However, since the LORD has placed homeschooling on my heart, this will also cover my family's adventures in homeschooling. Yes, I want every post… Continue reading A Few Changes
Recently I've been doing my daily devotions with the book The Power of a Positive Mom. For those mothers who are looking for God's grace during the stressful times of motherhood, I highly recommend this book. Karol Ladd has made me smile even when I want to cry. I'm not saying I'm naturally a positive mom.… Continue reading Power of a Positive Mom
I've fallen behind on chronicling my walk of Faith, not because it isn't important to me--it truly is. The last several weeks have been crazy, busy, and emotionally draining. My father was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer, so we've been going through the steps to start treatment. There has been a lot of prayers coming from… Continue reading Falling Behind
