We are Now a Single-Parent Homeschool

I am incredibly sorry I have neglected you.  So much has happened since my last post. We are now a single-parent homeschool. You read that right. After one short year of moving back with my husband, the kids and I are on our own. Continue reading “We are Now a Single-Parent Homeschool”

Red Nose Day – May 25, 2017

A clown style red nose is the symbol of Red Nose Day, which is a massive fundraising event held by Comic Relief every two years and this year it returns on May 25th.

Comic Relief was started by comedians who wanted to use comedy and laughter to let people know about poverty in the UK and Africa. It was launched in 1985, from a refugee camp in Sudan.

Comic Relief and Red Nose Day

The very first Red Nose Day was held in 1988, with millions of people participating in its first year. Check out some of the highlights of Comic Relief’s history timeline. Continue reading “Red Nose Day – May 25, 2017”

Fruit of the Spirit Study Series: Peace

I know I said I probably would not write this post on finding peace, but we all know what happens when we say we aren’t going to do something. Right? God Steps In!

So here is how it came about. And let me tell you, I honestly had no intentions of writing this post.

Finding Peace Through Others

First – We had a guest speaker at church yesterday, Brother Reno Likins. He is an awesome Preacher! Brother Reno is the Director of Indian Creek Baptist Camp, and he is an Evangelist.

During morning services, Brother Reno made a statement that stuck with me. Continue reading “Fruit of the Spirit Study Series: Peace”

Fun Geography Ideas

There may be affiliate links in this post.

There are so many ideas out there on how to teach Geography.  While we do use a curriculum, A Childs Geography, we tend to go off on our own rabbit trails. That’s the fun of homeschooling right?

While there’s no one right way of studying Geography there’s no reason why it can’t be fun and REALLY interesting!!

Two of my children’s favorite ways to study Geography are through games and recipes. I want to share this list of ideas with you, just in case you’re looking to add some fun to your Geography lessons. Continue reading “Fun Geography Ideas”

That Moment…..that moment when you realize all that you planned/wanted in life has not happened, not even close, and it is too late.

10 Ways to Pray for Our Children

Our most powerful resource as a parent is prayer.  We must bring our children before the throne of grace everyday, several times a day!

I’ve heard it said that we will never be perfect parents, but we can be praying parents.  This is so true and vitally important. We should have a daily goal that our Heavenly Father will hear our children’s names from our lips. Continue reading “10 Ways to Pray for Our Children”

My Word of the Year 2017: Heart

I know it’s the middle of January and I’m a bit late on my Word of the Year 2017, but I haven’t had a word of the year before now.  I have seen a lot of people doing this and I thought a Word of the Year could be used as an awesome accountability tool in my walk with the Lord.

My first thought was to go with the word Abide because that is where I want to be ALL THE TIME, abiding in God.  But in doing a Word Study I realized that while Abide is a really good choice, it just didn’t cover all that I wanted my word to cover.  So I am choosing Heart for my Word of the Year.
