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”

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”

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. Continue reading “My Word of the Year 2017: Heart”

4 Rules of Communication

When my husband and I came back together you can imagine there were some adjustments to be made.  After all, the children were used to dealing with two different homes with two different sets of rules.  And the fact that we were apart for more than two years, it would take some time to get back into our own roles.

Life was wonderful for the first couple months, but Continue reading “4 Rules of Communication”
