    Choosing a Verse for Your Homeschool Year

    For as many years as I can remember, we have been choosing a verse for our family each homeschool year. I usually pray about it for awhile and see where the Lord leads. It has been amazing to do this because we have seen each year how the verses truly fit our family and where He led us that year! This year every time I prayed about it, I kept hearing this one in my […]

    When the First Day of School Isn’t Picture Perfect

    Dear Mom whose first day of school wasn’t picture-perfect Yes, I know it hurts as you scroll through facebook and see picture after picture of smiling children, matching outfits, and hair just so. The chalkboard they’re holding proudly proclaims their grade level… Yet, your kids somehow don’t look like that. No one wanted to get dressed, let alone wear a new outfit or pretty hairstyle. And grade level? You are wondering where your struggling learner […]

    31 Days of Praying for Your Homeschool

    Several years ago I had this free printable available, and it was also part of the appendix in my book, Called Home. Last year when I re-released the book, we updated this section without the actual verses. Because of my desire to have women in the Word on their own, we just included the verse reference so that you can look up the verses on your own and in the translation of your choice. There […]

    Will She Be Prepared?

    Two summers. My baby girl has two summers left before she is¬†officially a bonafide adult and graduated from this journey of homeschooling. And actually, we are in one of those summers right now. So I guess that makes it one and a half summers?¬† Sigh. With each beautiful summer sunset, we get one day closer to the sun setting on a journey that has been so special for us. And the sun also rises on […]

    Summer School

    Right now we are Summer Schooling! I love summer. The slower paced schedule and the time outside. Everything in bloom. So much to discover. The warm nights. The sunshine. The yummy treats. I love it all! Our schedule is slow and our formal books may be closed, but I’ve seen that we are learning just as much as any other time of year.¬† I’ve watched my kids in the garden, observing the plants each day.
