Opening Ceremonies tonight! Encouraging Our Kids To Aim High

I can't wait for the Olympics to start! Tonight's the night for opening ceremonies ---

I'm thinking about some of  the Olympic ideals -- the tenacity,perseverance and dedication of all the athletes --

I wonder what all the moms are thinking..... after all, they're the ones that have driven the kids to practices, meets, work-outs. Maybe they're wondering if it will be worth it all.

You're A Natural Teacher, So Teach With Your Own Style!


Whether you're brand new to homeschooling, or a seasoned veteran with 20 years of experience under your belt, why is it that in mothering & in teaching, we have the tendency to think that we somehow need to be like someone else or do things like someone else?  Maybe it's just me -- but I think it's easy to fall into the trap.

Time For Quiet Reflection

Today's our last day at the ocean ~

It's been a lovely time to slow down, simply being together and enjoying all that the beach has offered....an awakening of all five senses. I'm thankful for a restful and wonderful seven days.

Although this has been an incredible location and an absolutely beautiful week, free from the hustle and bustle of the D.C. area,  I'm realizing that a place can't really give me the peace that I long for ---it's God alone who gives me true rest and peace.

In Need of Refreshment?


Do you ever get bogged down with your “to do” list? What about your Christian “to do” list? Just thinking about it can take the joy out of serving Jesus, especially in your home. In studying through Ephesians and Isaiah this past year, the Lord impressed me to take stock of what works (projects) I take on to do. ..
