Converting our HOME into a Home SCHOOL

  In the first portion of this “Are You Ready to Homeschool” series, I talked about one aspect that is near and dear to all of our hearts when it comes to life, lifestyles, and making that transition: money.   I thought to focus this time on the physical changes that occurred within our home as […]

How to Afford Homeschooling

If I do this “Are You Ready to Homeschool” series well, somebody might just get off the bubble and decide to take the homeschooling journey.  After all, what is stopping you once you seriously consider the decision?  For many, the answer is simple: MONEY.   When we began seriously thinking about homeschooling, I was pregnant […]

How We Place our Homeschool Year into a Bullet Journal

Too many posts about planning, you think? You could be right, but it is that time of year, and bullet journaling is my new obsession tool of choice to make things happen.   In May, I plan to write an “Are You Ready” series, sharing my own thoughts and experiences about the adjustments families should consider before […]

Teaching Thankfulness (to myself first)

Where are we with this homeschool year?   One word comes to mind as we quickly come to a screeching halt: interrupted. In the back of my mind, I knew that we had two children to pick up at the end of the school year—one graduating, which potentially meant more travel in helping her establish […]

We’re Being Watched, Warts and All

While working on a business project, I shared what felt like an epiphany with a friend and accountability partner: “What if all of this (meaning the business) was for her (my oldest daughter) and not for me?”   It occurred to me in that same moment that, while David’s heart was to build a temple for […]

 When You Need a Break…(Just Take It!)

It seems like the public school system is almost constantly under fire, and I am amazed at how with each new Presidential administration comes a new and markedly different solution to identified problems.  I cannot help but think that some part of the problem is the insistence of making our most precious resource—the next generation—the […]

How Planners Can Change Your (Homeschool) Life

“Holding thoughts in your head is like trying to grasp water.”  Ryder Carroll   There are tons of memes that mock all the collections of a homeschooling family: insects, feathers, animals of all kinds, eggs, markers, beans—and those are the “tamer” sets of would-be science and math knick knacks.   I don’t know that I’ve seen a […]

What Black History Teaches Us About God (part 2)

From my last post (part 1 on this same subject), I voiced how intriguing I thought this question was, among all the questions that are asked about this month: “What does black history teach us about God?” Though not an all-inclusive list, I envisioned myself sitting with tea in hand, relaxing on a comfy couch, […]

What Black History Teaches Us About God (part 1)

I am often intrigued by the responses of people regarding our celebration of what is commonly called Black History Month.  It speaks to how much race is still core to who we are as Americans; it also speaks to how fragile we can be on this same subject.  Perhaps we simply confuse discussions of race […]
