3 Ways to Motivate Boys in Your Homeschool

Homeschooling the Compliant Child

Homeschooling an obedient, compliant child seems like a stress-free dream come true for most parents. These kids generally have pleasing dispositions, are easy to get along with, move with the flow, don’t look for fights and take direction well. Because of this, when they are in trouble they don’t always throw up the white flag. […]

The Power of a Thankful Heart

In preparation for this month’s column, I’ve spent the last few days thinking about gratitude. About the importance of being grateful for even the small, everyday blessings that fill our lives. To say grace, as G.K. Chesterton said he did “…before meals…before the concert and the opera, and grace before the play and pantomime, and […]

Our Thanksgiving Traditions

Thanksgiving is my husband’s favorite holiday. This holiday has been special for him and has so many memories associated with it. So over the years we have tried to make it something really special. Since we have been married, my husband and I have always had a Thanksgiving Day meal with all the trimmings at […]

Fall flavors come together to make this healthful, sugar free, dairy free, delicious and easy family favorite! This recipe is great because you can adapt it to suit your needs.

An Open Letter to My Son, My First Born

The Year of Reconciliation

This past year has been very different for me, filled with great sorrow, but also great peace. I sometimes give names to certain years, like 2011 I had dubbed the Year of the Butterfly, because it was a year in which I transformed more fully into myself, the person I was meant to be. This […]

New Seasons

As a homeschool mom I have been privileged to witness each stage of my children’s lives. I have seen the light bulb come on when they learn a new concept and see the growth as they work through a situation. I am in awe of the absolute responsibility that we have. I love it and […]

A Few of My Favorite (Fall) Things

Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 Fall brings mixed emotions for me–celebration and grief. I celebrate the birth of my two oldest children and I grieve the memory of lost loved ones. Some years, the […]

Praline Sweet Potatoes

Have you noticed in recent years that sweet potatoes have seemed to make a comeback? Many restaurants now offer sweet potato fries or even baked sweet potatoes. I love those new healthy options, but nothing can take the place of Praline Sweet Potatoes for Thanksgiving. This is one of my girl’s favorite recipes and has […]

Using Google Drive in Your School Planning

I admit that I am not the most organized of people. I have been homeschooling for the past 9 years, and in those years I have mostly taken a “fly by the seat of your pants” approach to planning. For the most part, it worked. But this year we started a new chapter in our […]

Homeschooling For Free

I had every intention of writing an entirely different post for today.  But sometimes God has a way of whispering to your heart that you need to do something else.  Sometimes He gets so insistent that you almost feel like He has dropped a brick on your head.  That is how this post came to […]
