Beatitudes for Parents

What a Friend we Have in Jesus

I get a lot of junk mail, email, and information pushed at me as a blogger and homeschool mom – and let’s face it – as a human being. This week, however, as I got ready to trash another newsletter I didn’t have time to read, a date caught my eye in small print. 1895. […]

Do you feel the sun setting on 2015? The cold wind is blowing and the last bit of this holiday season seems to be on fast forward.

A long time ago in a galaxy far away, a blog friend of mine tagged me to write 7 fun things about myself. In case you haven’t ever heard of a “tag”, it is basically like “Tag, you’re it!” from elementary school days in the game of chase… only with keyboards and grown up girls […]
