Picking the best curriculum for your family!

Home schooling might look like the best plan ever for your family.  Until you start to look at and for curriculum, then you might start to feel more like a fish out of water than a educator.  There are so many choices out there to pick from, and it can be very overwhelming. Like many parents  I began to feel out of  my depth with the seemingly endless supply of home schooling resources available. But if you're stepping into the home school arena, you don't have to be intimidated. With a little preparation, you can find the curriculum that is a perfect fit for your family, I did! Know your FoundationThe best curriculum for your children will be the one that aligns with your family's purpose for home schooling. Perhaps your  key values, political worldview, schedule and expected outcome should play a significant role in your decision. One of the best ways to avoid getting sidetracked from your initial purpose is to write an academic mission statement that you can reference as…

Marriage Lesson 2 !

In every marriage there comes a time where life is just running on routine the same old same old.... I am here to tell you with work a flame can and will come alive again! In lesson two we will talk about how to get the home fires burning again!!! Enjoy Can the Flame Burn Again? Some may feel like the romance and excitement is long gone in their marriage. They stay together for convenience or for the sake of the children or other family members. But, as the well-known song asks, "Where is the love?" Can my marriage really be happy? Proverbs 5:18-19
Let your fountain be blessed, and rejoice with the wife of your youth.
As a loving deer and a graceful doe, let her breasts satisfy you at all times; and always be enraptured with her love. Ecclesiastes 9:9
Live joyfully with the wife whom you love all the days of your vain life which He has given you under the sun, all your days of vanity; for that is your portion in life, and in the labor which you perform under the sun. Yes, yo…

Marriage Lessson 1

As a counselor by profession I want to use my blog for things that are close to my heart, I want it to be a place that offers help and information.  Most that follow me know that homeschooling is at the top of that list but in all honesty so is having healthy, happy relationships.  Weekly I am going to try to share a new aspect of relationship building so that you can have it if you want!  My prayer is that it might bless you or someone!
Lesson 1:
God Must Be Involved in Your Marriage For a marriage to be happy and successful for life, the husband and wife must include God as a partner in their marriage. They must acknowledge God as Supreme in their lives and together yield to what God instructs in the Bible about marriage. The marriage will fail if it is based on self-gratification and pleasure. Is God really involved in marriage? Malachi 2:14
Yet you say, "For what reason?" Because the Lord has been witness between you and the wife of your youth, with whom you have dealt tr…


I had the pleasure to go with our churcha as a group to see this movie! OMG is all I can say.....This is not your regular God based spiritual movie.  Now don't get me wrong it is very, very spritual and oh does it speak of Gods ability to change things through prayer!  What it does so wonderfully is use humor and real life issues to show God. This movie talked to me in such manners,  I left wanting all my friends to see this well written script.  I also left wanting a war room!   I have put the ad for this movie below. If you have not seen this move take your husband and make it a date night you will not regret it!!

Prayer is a powerful weapon.” The Kendrick brothers, who brought you “Fireproof” and “Courageous,” are back with a new theme to their film ministry: prayer. Their latest venture is called “War Room.” This drama posits that prayer is a battlefield. It tells the story of Tony and Elizabeth Jordan. They have all the material possessions of a successful family. Tony (T.C. …

Home school Class Rooms!!

I have been homeschooling for such a long time, and when I started having a homeschool class room was not on my list.  Over the years and as my need of organization increased it has become a need in my home.  What I have learned is that  creating a homeschool class room isn’t that hard.   To be   honest if your not like me and your child have constant projects, all you need is a place to write and a place to keep the books.  With that being said, I’ve learned over the years how to create a great homeschooling space.  With many fails and a lot of trial and error.   Creating a learning inspired classroom is really simple.   When I first started homeschooling we were living in California in a small home.  My bright ideal was to use a back storage area, my mistake was it was to small.  We all felt like we were on top of each other and it was stuffy in the summer and freezing in the winter.  Half way through and with the pure need for peace I moved us all to the kitchen table, we all were a…
