16 Short {and Repeatable!} Prayers for Homeschooling Parents

16 Short {and Repeatable!} Prayers for Homeschooling Parents   I’ve been a homeschooling mom for twenty-one years. I started homeschooling when my oldest son was four years old in 1993.

3 Things Books You Love Say About You

3 Things Books You Love Say About You   How often do you re-read your favorite books? And what do they say about you? Recently, I’ve been caught up in Rome during the first century.

Homeschooling Alyssa from preschool age was no problem. We adopted her as a newborn from a private placement. Yet adopting from the foster care system, and homeschooling {Read More}

Taking Note of God’s Creative Hand

Taking Note of God’s Creative Hand   In the beginning God created. It’s easy to see that when we step outside, but we need to remember that it’s God Who gives breath to our creativity, too.
