The Lord's Purpose Prevails, Not Ours

The Lord's Purpose Prevails, Not Ours
Some promises are great promises no matter how you look at it!Many are the plans in a man's heart,but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.Proverbs 19:21We often think of this verse and imagine we are doing everything right, and the Lord will be sure it succeeds.  Have you ever considered this verse from the other side?  Think of it this way, can you REALLY ruin your child's life? It's not unheard of for a parent...

Quiet Time is Key to Homeschool Confidence!

Quiet Time is Key to Homeschool Confidence!
I believe having a quiet time in the morning is the key to homeschool confidence. I say morning because I'm a morning person.  When I see scriptures about the morning, it always resonates with me.  With apologies to all the night owls out there, check out this scripture!Psalm 143:8Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,for I have put my trust in you.Show me the way I should go,for to you I lift up...

The way I'm wired, I have to read my Bible right before I go to sleep. It's the only time I can consistently do it.

You Can't Mess Up Your Child's Life by Homeschooling!

You Can't Mess Up Your Child's Life by Homeschooling!
Do you worry about messing up your child's life because of homeschooling?  Don't!  Homeschooling won't ruin them forever, or force them to fail if they are meant for greatness.Psalm 139:16Your eyes saw my unformed body.All the days ordained for mewere written in your bookbefore one of them came to be.The Lord created your child for your family, and before this child was even born, their entire life span was written in the Lord's book.  Nothing you...

Got Trouble? Feel Oppressed?

Got Trouble?  Feel Oppressed?
Spring.  When a young man's thoughts turn to thoughts of love, and when a homeschool mom starts thinking about next year.  Wouldn't it be nice to just STOP, and hit the fast forward button to next fall?  New and fresh curriculum, new strategies, and best of all, new books!  But if you still need to get through this year, you need something to keep you strong in this time of trouble.  I have a suggestions:Psalm 9:9The...

Homeschooling High School - Strengthen What Remains!

Homeschooling High School - Strengthen What Remains!
Revelation 3:1-2I know your deeds; you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead.  Wake up! Strengthen what remains.... Remember, therefore, what you have received and heard.This scripture is written to the church in Sardis, but the advice is still helpful for homeschoolers.  If you feel like you're dead to homeschooling right now, you aren't alone.  This can be a difficult time of year for parents.  It's hard to keep school new, fresh and...

Does your heart leap for joy? Then count your music credits!

Does your heart leap for joy? Then count your music credits!
Psalm 28:7The LORD is my strength and my shield;  my heart trusts in Him, and I am helped.  My heart leaps for joy and I will give thanks to Him in song.Have you looked at your homeschool and screamed "HELP!"  In my homeschooling high school mini-course, I asked parents to tell me their biggest question about homeschooling high school.   It's common for me to see a one word, panic-filled cry, "Help!" My mission is to help...

Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord

Commit Your Plans to the Lord!

Commit Your Plans to the Lord!
"Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed."Proverbs 16:3That's quite a promise there!  I love how the Bible says your PLANS will succeed.  He doesn't promise your CURRICULUM will succeed.  Chances are there will be some curriculum choices along the way that won't work.  The good news is that your plans will succeed when you commit what you do to the Lord.  "Here God, this is for you.  You carry the burden."Commit...
