No Regrets

This past June was a most monumental event that almost slipped by!  What was the event?  Oh how kind of you to ask…  I celebrated 30 years of homeschooling (with only 12 to go!) And that to me, calls for an enormous celebration! So while Dw was in Africa for The Gem Foundation groundbreaking the…

It’s That Time Again…

Although many of you don’t homeschool, you might wonder what it looks like.  And for those of you who do, three cheers for staying at it! With our second week of school in full swing I thought it would be a good idea to cheer on my other mama-friends out there who spend their days…

Some evenings…

One Closing Thought…

I was talking to a precious friend late last evening as I drove to pick up Dw and the kids.  It was such a blessing to have a good heart-to-heart with my friend {I was so thankful she picked up the phone.} One of the things we were talking about was how the whole “homier…

It’s Your Chance…

A couple of months ago I felt like the Lord was speaking to me about an idea for a little series of blog posts for the future. The idea wasn’t all that extraordinary {in the scheme of some of the things I’ve heard Him speak to my heart}….in fact being perfectly honest I thought, “Okay,…
