Judgement in and for the Adoption Community

March 27, 2014

Sigh.  I thought there would be more of an understanding community within the adoption circle, but judgment against one another’s decisions are there just as much as other groups.  And judgement against those who adopt and they way they choose to do it.  I shouldn’t be surprised, really.  Sin nature is sin nature. Each adoption […]

Homeschooling 101: Philosophies of Education

March 25, 2014

The best piece of advice I ever received at the beginning of my homeschooling journey was to decide my philosophy of education before buying a single curriculum item.  That has proven to be incredibly helpful (and money saving like you wouldn’t believe) because there is a veritable smorgasbord of curriculum out there.  If you can […]

No Shame for Abortion, But for Adoption?!

March 13, 2014

I had a wonderful conversation with a lady the other day.  And by wonderful, I mean heart breaking and awful in topic, but open and flowing. She asked about my story and the topic of abortion in our culture.  That led to my sharing about what I think we need to talk about more as […]

Making Sure Our Homeschoolers Do Hard Things

March 10, 2014

Last summer God answered a prayer request I had for our homeschool: He brought a logic, biology, and writing class to my doorstep. Ok, not exactly to our door step, but pretty much.  Seriously. These are three classes that I am willing to tackle, but are challenging. Some dear friends offered to teach biology and […]
