Today I publically posted another archived Patreon video. I recorded this about 6 months ago when I was smack in the middle of one of the worst periods of my life. A day or two after I made this, my daughter was hospitalized for the second time in 6 weeks.
I really debated about whether or not to make this video public. This was very personal for me, and I honestly didn’t want to relive it.
But…I decided to go ahead and do it for one reason – to encourage people. Even when you’re going through some really terrible stuff, if you’ve got Jesus, there will be an unexplainable peace and strength that can come from nowhere but Him.
If you’re going through a crisis, trust in Him. Believe that He is with you, because He is. Instead of saying, “You’ve got this,” I’m going to say, “He’s got this.” Lay it at His feet. You are blessed.
Today’s video is different from my others. In honor of the new year, this video is more like a therapy session, a recap of what has probably been the hardest year my family and I have ever experienced.
Here’s to praying for a much better 2020. 🙏

Today I’m going to be upfront about something a lot of my fellow believers don’t want to hear:

I’ll tell you what, guys. The past several months have been quite disturbing, to say the least. People have been coming out of the woodwork to attack homeschooling…and they’ve been coming from every angle: Continue reading “Another Attack on Homeschooling”
If you’ve been here before, you know that once I get started on my tirades about the public education system, it can take awhile for me to get it out of my system.
That’s where I am right now. 😉
Last week, I shared with you why my husband and I have decided that school isn’t even an option for our kids. Today I am going to tackle one of the reasons for that – the usurpation of parental authority.
While I could come up with dozens of ways schools have stolen the rights of parents across the country, today I’m going to share the five that have hit me the most. Continue reading “Parents, Wake Up! School Is Usurping your Parental Authority”
As a Christian mom, it is my responsibility to raise my children to know what the Bible says and what it doesn’t.
I often have conversations with fellow believers who describe their family devotion time as peaceful, loving, and holding everyone’s attention perfectly- even the family dog. 😛
I’ve got news for you. That’s not my family. My littles are a force to be reckoned with. Yes, they need to learn obedience. Yes, they need to learn reverence. But I can’t help but ardently believe that God gave these children energy for a reason, and by George, I think we need to use that energy for His glory and not squash it out of them.

Last week I published the second of two posts listing the many reasons that I believe homeschooling is better than school.
So, it should come as no surprise to you when I say that, unlike many other homeschooling families, my kids do not have the option of going to school. (At least until they go to college.)
One of the beauties of homeschooling is the freedom for each family to do what is best for them, so I am not in any way denigrating homeschooling parents who always keep the possibility of school on the table. I used to feel the same way. In fact, I actually did send my kids back to school for two years, so maybe that’s why I’m so adamant now about not doing it ever again.

This is a homeschooling blog. Three times a week I write about things that will hopefully encourage homeschooling parents.
But I’m not just a homeschool blogger. I’m not just a mom or a wife. I’m not just a daughter. First and foremost, above all things, I am a follower of Jesus Christ.
A few weeks ago, my pastor preached a powerful message. At the heart of this message were these three words:
Tell your story.

Everybody Can Help Somebody
In a world that often seems as if most people only care for themselves, it can be a bit intimidating to raise children who are able to see the good in their fellow humans. Violence is widespread, people with opposing viewpoints resort to arguments instead of good-natured discussions, and the sheer force of consumerism drives many to do crazy things. (remembering recent Black Fridays…) Continue reading “Same Kind of Different As Me for Kids- Review”
Real Stories of a Courageous New Generation Standing for Truth
The United States was formed by a population of Christians who were seeking a land where they could worship as they chose. Fast forward a few centuries, and this country has seemingly embraced a worldview completely opposite that which this country was built upon. Continue reading “No Fear by Tony Perkins- Review”
