Today was a day of firsts, of sorts. Less than a week ago we were using the wood stove in the evenings to keep us warm. Today, is the first day of temperatures over 90° this year! We live in a climate that sees many days over 100°, so the 90° mark doesn’t feel […]
The family Bible. In days of old, most homes kept a family Bible. Not only was the family Bible used for daily reading and family worship, but it was also the place where the family records were kept.
When Copper and I were married in 1978, a friend of my family stopped […]
If you’ve been joining me in praying for Karen these last several months, today’s post on her blog is one you’ll not want to miss!!! Please join me in praising God for His goodness to Karen, and let’s just keep on praying until she tells us to stop!
Our pediatrician finally called last night around 8:00. She worked in the night clinic yesterday so she didn’t get our message about my son until quite late in the day.

It turned out that my husband had received complimentary tickets to a AAA ball game! […]

Dani graduated six years ago, which means it’s been about ten years since I have had to plan out a complete high school course of study. I’ve downloaded several documents to use as guidelines, including the admission […]
Many of you are beginning to wind down your homeschooling year. I know that some of you finish up your school year the end of May, and others continue on for a week or two longer. Some school year ‘round, but implement a more laid back schedule for the summer months. We school year […]
Homeschooling is a big job. It’s not an easy one. It’s not made any easier when your parents or in-laws don’t approve. What is the best way, then, to handle a situation like this? I cannot, of course, know what each and every situation is that you might be facing with your own parents […]
I love sharing things here with all of you. I really and truly do! I also love the fellowship that can spring up in the comments sections. We’ve laughed together, prayed for one another and shared one another’s burdens. However, as I’ve mentioned here frequently and as I’ve noted in my profile in […]
