Housework Automations

Housework automations make the household run smoothly. Yes our housework is largely automated because we use machines that basically do the work for us, like a washing machine. Our job though is to gather up the laundry and load the washing machine. When the washing machine is done, we need to unload the clean clothes... Continue Reading →

Step Forward: What do we do now?

This has been a tough season for America. Two colliding thoughts on how to live life. I do not hide that I am a Christian Republican. Unfortunately each party is deeply flawed because people are involved. Having the Dems in control of the House, Senate and Presidency makes me feel a bit like the Israelites... Continue Reading →

Homeschooling: The 2nd Semester

Homeschooling during the second semester is quite different than the first semester. If it is done right, it can be a time of the biggest push forward in your child's whole school year. The holidays are over and everyone has had a much-needed break from school. This is important for moms as well as for... Continue Reading →

Homeschooling: An ungrateful student

Have you encountered grumbling instead of appreciation in your children during school lately? I have. So how do we get back to a grateful attitude in these strenuous times? It doesn't matter what year it is, we need to be training up our children to love learning and learning how to be thankful. It's been... Continue Reading →

Remove all Fear

Don’t be afraid of what others say or what will spook up the nation. What this fear is doing to the mind and emotions of the nation - the fear it evokes - is not God's doing at all. Remove all fear from your mind. Don’t listen to those who go on and on. Guard... Continue Reading →

In fact, it makes me upset because I like to see the good in people. Do you lean towards grace or judgement? I've had to reckon with the fact that vast... Continue Reading →

Sleepless Nights

Sleepless nights are hard. Getting less sleep or interrupted sleep gets old fast. There's something wonderful about a good night's sleep. So much hinges on a good night's sleep too. Recently I've gotten off a medication that had caused me to sleep soundly. It's not the reason I took it but it was a nice... Continue Reading →

Alone or with God

One morning while reading and journaling, I saw a shadowy thing go by. I thought, "hummm, that's weird. Wonder what that was." But then I saw clearly what it was. It was a grey rat! The next thing I knew, I found myself doing what many women do in that same situation: screaming loudly and... Continue Reading →

Walk Humbly with Your God

A Hawaiian vacation would have been so nice. I had planned to be there this very day. But it was cancelled because of Covid. We planned this vacation a year ago and saved all year long in hopes that just maybe it would be possible. But the condo there cancelled our reservations. This is just... Continue Reading →

Do What is Right

Doing What is Right seems difficult after summer's break. But September is here and although I love the special treats like Pumpkin Spice Latte with a Maple Leaf Cookie from Trader Joes. I don't always feel thrilled about our school schedule or being a responsible housewife. I've had a hard time getting started again especially... Continue Reading →
