She is a cutie!

In response to your homeschooling question, I read and researched a LOT before starting homeschooling but there is one book that I found after I started but wish I had read it in the beginning, The Well Trained Mind. I suggest you start with that one and Cathy Duffy's 100 Top Picks for Curriculum is great also. It not only lists great curriculum reviews, although I DO think it needs updating in the curriculum suggestions since there have been so many new releases since its print, it also lists great information about learning styles.

The Lord placed homeschooling on my heart when my oldest was in K but I didn't know any homeschoolers nor did I have a computer with internet so it was until 8th grade that we made the move and brought him home for 9th grade along with the rest of our children who were in 2nd and 1st. It can be done. I also suggest you check out Homeschool Legal Defense Association (hslda.org) and join as well. Their site has great info regarding state laws and resources. Some local homeschool groups in your state are listed there also and you can find great support in a homeschool group.

Another note, if this is what the Lord is calling you to do, He will equip and enable you to do it. You will have good days and bad days but stick with it. It is a learning process for you just as much as it is for your children. And don't EVER listen to naysayers! God didn't call them so they can't understand the vision. You know what's best for your children. Don't ever doubt it.

I hope this helps.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Blessings to you.

Godly Women From the Past (Gladys Aylward Part 2)

Quotes from Gladys Aylward
"I wasn't God's first choice for what I've done for China…I don't know who it was…It must have been a man…a well-educated man. I don't know what happened. Perhaps he died. Perhaps he wasn't willing…and God looked down…and saw Gladys Aylward…And God said - "Well, she's willing."
“If God has called you to China or any other place and you are sure in your own heart, let nothing deter you….Remember, it is God who has called you and it is the same as when He
called Moses or Samuel.”

"My heart is full of praise that one so insignificant, uneducated, and ordinary in every way could be used to His glory for the blessing of His people in poor persecuted China."

Malawi Mission Trip 2016

Its been two weeks since I have been back in America after being in Africa. I was able to go on a mission trip to Malawi. Since being back, I am still speechless. I can't find the words to explain my experience of being in Africa. The land is beautiful. The people are beautiful. The food is amazing. Some of the things I can take away from being in Malawi:

1) To be grateful. There were days that we went without running water (could not take showers). I thought to myself that the Malawi people go through this all the time and I still see them praising God. 2) To Pray, Worship and Rejoice always. I need to make up my mind daily to not let the world fill me up. I saw people walking for hours to get to church and while in church service praising God. I need to daily sit at the Lords feet and be with Him praying.  3) I can live without social media. During the trip we did not have much internet and we were okay. Since being home, I have found myself sitting in silence and meditating on …

Journal Entry #14 - Free me up, from the Fear of Rejection

Abba I pray for peace in my heart and mind. I no longer want to believe in the lies that I am worthless, ugly, and slow. I need (want) you to remind me of who I am in you. When I look at my past I see a girl that has been hurt. A girl that was lonely and invisible. Show me Your love for me. Show me that I belong to you

The pain from being rejected still haunts me. My mind is filled with memories of being rejected. There were many times I was called ugly, monkey, slow, made fun of because of my weight and height, I notice that sometimes I would isolate myself from others because I was afraid of being rejected by my peers. What others thought of me, consumed me. I placed more value on what others have said and thought about me then what God says about me, as his child. The Lord has shown me His love and everyday I am learning to lay down the fear of rejection.
