My six month hiatus was long with a lot of ups and downs, but also much growth. Although it was difficult, I am also thankful for it. I can look back and see the pain, but also see the fruit that came from it. That doesn't mean it was easy, but prayer and scripture is what got me through. And now while finding a new normal, prayer and scripture is still what is getting me through. The hiatus brought to light a few things that had to go or be limited and I'm seeing that it might need to happen again. I'm talking about the need to compare, especially over social media. Now more than ever, we must be aware of comparing ourselves.
It took me a really long time to find a meal planning system that worked. I tried several paper and online options without much success. This weekly meal planner includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, with options on the side to keep meal planning flexible. This is an updated version of an old black and white copy. Enjoy!
It’s Homeschool Friday! I wanted to share some of our favorite art and music resources. Through Classical Conversations, we cover several great artists and composers. Everything listed is something we use on a regular basis or I have found and want to use more. Hope you find resources your family would enjoy too!!
How This Mom Finds Rest in Jesus
What is rest? Rest means something different to everyone. Maybe it’s sleeping in on a lazy rainy morning. Maybe it’s a day off from work. Maybe it’s a week long vacation. What does rest mean spiritually? I find myself in this perpetual state of needing rest at times. But most of the time, I don’t even know what that looks like. And why do I need just so much rest anyway?
Happy Friday!! Although my primary focus for this blog is not necessarily homeschooling, it is a huge part of our lives in this season. For that reason, I would like to share on Fridays (or sometime on the weekend) some of our homeschooling adventures from the week. This week we are starting to get back into a routine, specifically our morning routine. This post will cover the curriculum I believe we will be using, although that is always subject to change.
Kids and food can make for a super stressful combination, especially when it entails a child refusing food you are giving them. Every child is unique and every family has to make their own choices. I am sharing how we feed our kiddos, why we believe food is important and how I believe it has shaped their food preferences.
Why Breaks are important
What is the definition of a break? It is different for everyone and based on who you talk to, it can vary. It also varies based on the environment, a workplace, at home, school, etc. For everyone though, a break is in essence a time away from some thing. The question is, what is that thing?
Please check back often as I am adding or modifying pages as time permits.
Scripture/Quote of the Week:
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.
2 Timothy 1:7
