Being Real

I don’t do social media. I am trying to be better about not spending much time every day even on emails or blogging. I think my personal biggest temptation is to look sideways and play the comparison game, especially with other mommies. Other moms (either celebrity or personal friends) seem to have it all together. […]

Perspective on Loving My Children

A friend of mine from our homeschool co op shared this sweet little take on 1 Corinthians 13… it made me smile and brought courage to my heart. It is a day where I needed this strong reminder: all else (including freezing rain, cranky hearts, fussing siblings, sick kids, and halfhearted schoolwork) will fade away, […]

Big Kid Joys

I love babies. My mom might smile and tell you that’s largely because I’ve had “easy babies.” But let’s be honest: to at least a certain extent, babies are babies, and babies are also honed by the hard work of their mama. So while God definitely did give my babies their blessed personalities and natures, […]

He Makes All Things New

Acts 14:15 “…we bring you good news, that you should turn from vain things to the living God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.” Revelation 21:5 “And He who was seated on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new.“ Last month, I had […]

A Child’s World

I set my children up with some map puzzles this morning. The eight year old with one of the world… The four year old with one of the United States… But apparently it has been a little while since we’ve done geography on this level, because the younger one suddenly bursts out, “Mommy!! Mommy!! Neverland!! […]

Enjoy It

What is one of the first, last, and most common things that an older & wiser woman tells a young mama? Enjoy it. Enjoy these days, because they go by all too quickly. Oh! Don’t we know it! I do not begrudge the sentiment by a long shot, nor do I hold it against the throngs who […]

Homeschool, at a glance

Published by under Homeschooling

This is what you might see of our homeschooling routine this week, if you glance in my windows. A mosaic, slathered in grace. Education is a mosaic of beauty. The various coloured fragments are interrelated. ~Elizabeth Goudge, Linnets & Valerians, p68~          You say grace before meals. All right. But I say grace […]

Life in the Weeds

I was gritting my teeth through the morning… two crying in one room while two squabbled in another… one wetting her pants while another filled his diaper… two boys throwing up hands because of math problems while the baby throws up milk because I didn’t pat out his burps while I want to throw in […]

Irrigating Deserts

The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles, but to irrigate deserts. ~C. S. Lewis~ We need to take special care to tell stories that are ‘not suitable’ for modernists. The Bible contains dragons, giants, principalities, satyrs, and unicorns. Invariably, these get cleaned up in translation so that modernist evangelicals are […]
