A Room Full of Differences…LOVE WELL

I HAVE BEEN OVERWEHLEMED the last few weeks, as I have faithfully met with an amazing group of people every Wednesday night. Our paths have crossed because they are seeking a natural childbirth, and I just happen to be certified and able to teach them how to achieve that. It is always an honor to teach EVERY couple that the Lord brings through my classroom door, but this class has been something special. As I…

A Day in the Life of a Homeschooling Mom

As I promised, here is a quick look at our daily routine. “How do you organize your day?” is one of the most common questions I get from fellow homeschool moms, new moms taking my childbirth classes, and friends that know my list of responsibilities. I decided to spend some time answering that question just for YOU. First, I will admit that I am a very organized person. I thrive on schedules, lists, and to…

3 years of saying, “YES.” I found gems beneath my feet.

If you follow me on social media, you know me personally, or you have read my blog in the past, it is pretty obvious that I homeschool my children and that I LOVE it. I mean, I feel like I was made for it. But, I have to be honest with you. I did not always feel “made for it.” You know what? I didn’t even want to do it. We…

Between My House and My Mailbox

Every day at about 1:30 pm I step outside my front door, walk over the dirty baseball cleats on my porch, and navigate myself through the landscaped jungle to my mailbox. My big kids are either outside playing or watching a movie on a rainy day. My baby is still singing in her crib to keep herself from napping. With everyone occupied, I go to check the mail. On the sunny days I let…

When God Does the Work for You

Life has been a bit crazy busy lately. A good crazy, but it has left little time for “extracurricular” activities. To be honest, I have enjoyed the pace. The past few months have been productive, intentional, and fulfilling. Yet, last week I hit a wall. I was tired. Life gave me a breather, and I was thankful. Resting, sleeping, and hanging out with my crew at home has been my rhythm. I LOVE…

When I look at you I see…The February Slump

ENCOURAGEMENT. Wow, have I been in need of a little bit of this lovely word this week. It seems to me so have a lot of others around me. Why is it that EVERY year the middle of February sneaks in around us and tries to suck the sunshine out of us? I am getting emails about homeschool slump refreshers, activities to get your kids through the rest of winter, and weekend winter retreats. We…

Are you in danger of developing the mommy brain?

Did you know that 4 quarts equal 1 gallon and 2 pints equal 1 quart? The Gallon Man on my wall reminds me of this very useful information every morning as I prepare delicious meals for my children (or not so delicious meals). He stares at me with his kid drawn eyes daring me to learn more. He reminds me that I am a mom. He reminds me that I am a stay at home…

In with the Old…Kindness.

I know I am a bit late to the party, but is it too late to say Happy New Year?! I can not believe that it is 2016. Where are the years going? I LOVE the beginning of the year. It always feels like a new start of a great adventure and a new season. I love dreaming about what the year will behold. This year, I started daydreaming about all 365 days I have…
