A Little House from the Lord!

Awww Winter!


When I think of winter I think of snow falling outside, blankets ,good books, a cup of hot tea and of course warm fires. Well Here in Idaho we have all of those things. Right now as I am writing this my house and yard a being blanketed with soft, white,fluffy snow. Its so pretty to stare out my picture window and watch the snow flakes falling down. Of course I like to watch the snow ,not be in the snow. This is our first winter in our new home and I must say what a cozy little home it is. After living in a two story house for ten years with no fire place and only a gas furnace, our little house is a dream come true. I had prayed and prayed for ten years for a home in the country where we could raise our kids and have animals and I must say God has provided and I have no complaints. Its funny how when you pray for things they don't always get answered when you want them to. But God is an on time God and in his own time he answers prayers. You see we had been looking for a home for quite some time and put in many offers only to be turned down , and when we did get our offer excepted half way through escrow we lost a house. I cried many times and asked God why we didn't get certain houses that we loved so much and felt they were just right. I never did get answers to those prayers until we found this little house. It was all nestled away under trees that were over grown and the house needed some tlc. There is a big shop just right for all of my hubby's hobbies and just enough property to start a little homestead. When we first saw the house my husband said put in an offer , he could tell that it had good bones and it was well built despite all the fixes it needed. So we called up our agent and put in an offer and then waited. We waited for a while when one day our realtor called and said " Your in the drivers seat" ! I couldn't believe my ears I was so happy but yet tried not to get my hopes up as I had done so many times before. So with many prayers and lots of patients God answered our prayers and we bought this little home in the country. I am still amazed at how perfect this home is for our family and often wonder what life would be like if we had bought one of the other homes we had liked so much. Its funny how God knows where he wants us to be even though we don't even know sometimes.  So now here we are at Christmas time all cozy and warm with a fire , and watching the snow fall outside and I am reminded how Great our God is and how his timing is perfect always!

Hello everyone!


Today I just wanted to give a short little explanation about my curriculum books that I have created for my children. First of all, I created them specifically for my daughter that learns differently from the norm. She is a right-brained thinker and a very artistic and critical thinker. My daughter did not like the standard read and answer questions as most curriculum books are laid out this way. So I had to get creative. I realized she learned best when she was able to choose a subject that interested her, and the information stuck in her head! I was so thrilled! So I scoured the internet trying to find a curriculum that would do just what she needed. I did not find anything that I liked so I decided to create my own. And so A Christian Delight Directed Curriculum was born!!! Both of my girls use …

Stand Still And Let God Move!

Do you ever feel like you pray and pray and nothing happens? Maybe you you try to take situations into your own hands and it just causes more stress to your life?

Well that's how I feel. Lately I have been praying for multiple things and in my impatient heart nothing is happening. But the Lord reminded me that he is an on time God. He has a perfect plan for my life if I will just sit back and stand still and let him move. So I am, and it's funny how things begin to happen or fall into place when you least expect it. I am so thankful that the Lord speaks to my heart. Just the other day my husband had some good news and then something irritating happened and the Lord showed me how the devil likes to seek and destroy. You see in our happy moment something came up that was just simply irritating and the devil tried to still our joy. I am thankful that the Lord gave me the insight to see this and rebuke the devil!
With Thanksgiving upon us I am reminded of all the blessings the L…

The Contented Homemaker

Hello Everyone,

Lets chat for a bit. For as long as I can remember I have longed to be a homemaker. Sure there are a lot of girls who wish to grow up and have a huge career and make lots of money etc. But for me I have always wanted to be a wife and mother. Sound boring? Well I will tell you that the life of a wife and mother is far from boring and it is the highest calling that God has for a women. I have always longed to be like Caroline Ingalls and to live in a tiny house somewhere on the prairie. She was content where ever she was as long as she had God and her family. I want to raise my children as she did firm but loving. I want to honor and respect my husband for all that he is and does and to Glorify God in all that I do. Am I perfect? NO, I fall short in so many ways. The wonderful thing is that God molds me and makes me into what he wants me to be daily. We live in a day and age where so many women are not content and satisfied with life. Maybe its because as homemakers and…
