Relentless Learning

A while back I worked on writing a book. A book that I had looked for in bookstores and on Amazon, but could not find. I wanted to write a series of answers to questions and concerns voiced by loved ones and nosy ones regarding homeschooling. But I also wanted to bridge a gap between […]

we

This post goes in the mom journals. Lord give me the words to express this in a way that best encompasses who we are and not what we do. Having a family changes everything. Living through health problems puts life in perspective. I am going along with a bit of a theme right now as […]

kids in need of good homes

Several of my posts this month are aimed directly at sharing the desires of my heart. I have too much to write in just one post so I will spread them out over a few and link them together in a series somewhere on my blog page. The overall series link will be entitled People. […]

journey through christianity

Oooh, tricky topic. I’ll try to tread lightly as I make way through the experience I had from meeting Jesus to, well, now. When I met and fell in love with Christ I was 17. In the years to follow I would fall deeply in love with him, relapse into opiate abuse, come to fall more deeply […]

some Do’s and Don’ts I wish I could go back and tell myself

Last night I was able to get away for a bit to read and write. It was glorious. Especially after yesterday’s post about how stressed I felt. Then I come home to find my husband planned a get away for us this weekend. Just me and him at a nice little B&B called the Hyatt. […]

got myself checked out

teaching

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I’ve been working on a project and honestly it’s taken quite a bit out of me. I’ve noticed a trend as homeschooling grows and decided to look into it more… then I decided to write a short book about it. Currently I am in the drafting and researching […]

nothing like a good book

The amount of importance our society places on showing children the joy of reading is astounding. In my post yesterday I wrote that it was shocking to see how little the schools see the positive effects of reading to and with our children all the time. Time spent doing ditto’s and worksheets would be better spent reading and talking about the […]

post for homeschoolers

This post is extremely pro-homeschooling. Please don’t read it if your only plan is to roast me on this issue. I believe that the public school system is needed and that teachers have worked very hard to devote their careers to teaching children. They are underpaid and extremely important in our communities. This post does not take […]
