10 Bible Verses for Healing and Comfort

I don’t know what kind of week you had last week. bible-verses-forI don’t know what kind of morning you have had today. I don’t know what you will go through in the coming days. What I do know is that everyone at some point needs comfort. Every one is healing from something. Whether a death in the family, illness, a traumatic incident, missing a friend, fighting against sin, etc. everyone can use some comfort.

Math Facts Card Game

Math Facts Card Game

I stayed up late last night making flash cardsmath-facts…really late. I made all the subtraction and addition flash cards I will need for a while. I used colorful index cards (something I suggest all you moms do, even if your kids aren’t homeschooled!) This morning I knew William would be so excited to know that there were some new, more challenging math facts in the stack.

20 Minute Pick Up: for your sanity’s sake *plus free printables

Ok. 2nd week of the school year almost done. What20-minute-pick-up do things look like here? Messy. Although I am falling into routine much better this week than last week still the house has taken a hit. I know I need a system. I know I need a plan. Some changes need to be made so that homeschooling does not mean a messy, hectic house for the rest of our lives.

(And Joshua Said) Fear Not

(And Joshua Said) Fear Not

You’ve used a sponge right? To wipe counters,fear not clean walls, wash dishes. I think most of us understand the basic concept of a sponge. It’s dry and empty but when pushed down into warm, soapy water it comes up heavy and full. It’s dripping water everywhere it’s taken because it is so full.

ABC Memory Verses

ABC Memory Verses

I remember my Kindergarten year so well. I rabc-memory-verse-page-014emember so many details about the classroom and the little desk with scented markers for when we were really well behaved. I remember how the halls smelled like vanilla pudding all the time (I wonder if they still do? and how my teacher was not much taller than me at the time. I remember making a big giraffe with my class and I got to color in the spots. I remember making a hand print hanging and painting it gold. My mom still has that in her kitchen. Another thing I remember so specifically is memorizing the Bible verses in alphabetical order.

What to Expect: Homeschooling with Toddlers

What to Expect: Homeschooling with Toddlers

This is my second year homeschooling. And although we what-to-expectare only two days into the new school year I am having a ton of flash backs from last year. A lot of “Oh yeah- forgot about that.” When I first planned on homeschooling last year I had this wonderful Pinterest-like image in my head of how it would go. I have only ever homeschooled with toddlers in the house so maybe, just maybe, that Pinterest-like idea of a homeschooling home actually exists. But for the next couple of years I understand and am okay with the fact that homeschooling is…well…not picture perfect.

5 Ways to Keep Your Heart

5 Ways to Keep Your Heart

Growing up I had a small group of friends that I did ways sin effects (1)everything with. We spent many summer days playing softball, football, kickball, capture the flag, etc. One summer we tried to make our own little street hockey team. We had everything we needed but one thing stopped us: no one wanted to play goalie. It’s not exactly fun to have the ball hit at you over and over again. It’s the hardest position to play in any sport (in my opinion).
