The HomeScholar can dish it out...but she can't take it!

The HomeScholar can dish it out...but she can't take it!
I feel very put in my place.  Ashamed.  A little embarrassed, actually. I feel like I spend half my day telling parents to calm down, and not stress over the tiny details about course descriptions.  After all, is anyone REALLY going to go over it with a fine tooth comb AND a microscope?Well, I can dish it out, but I can't take it.  I was massively stressing over the cover for my new book.  I can...

Interrupted by God

Interrupted by God
We must be ready to allow ourselves to be interrupted by God. It is a strange fact that Christians and even ministers frequently consider their work so important and urgent that they will allow nothing to disturb them. They think they are doing God a service in this, but actually they are disdaining God's "crooked yet straight path" (Gottfried Arnold). But it is part of the discipline of humility that we must not spare our hand...

Do you have a Homeschool Stress Manager?

Do you have a Homeschool Stress Manager?
A friend stayed at a Holiday Inn Express the other day, and there was a unique greeter at the door!  Kip Holiday was his name.  The official title on his business card states that he is the "Stress Manager" of the hotel.  His bio on the hotel website says "When you stay with us, you arrive as guests, leave as family! Just ask the resident Stress Manager, Kip Holiday, our Golden Retriever!"  Read about him here.Stress...

Practice Makes Perfect!

Practice Makes Perfect!
I tell people that they should start "practicing high school" in 7th grade. I forget that even "practice" can be stressful. I've been taking an accounting class for my business (and hating every minute of it!) I was sitting there feeling completely overwhelmed, wondering how I was ever going to become knowledgeable enough to do this job! Then it dawned on me that I felt this exact same way when my kids were in 7th grade!...
