Merry Christmas

Hello everyone and Merry Christmas!

Well I wish I could say that 2016 has been a great year but we have had our fill of trials. First our family has have physical ailments not just with my husband and I but our parents health also. We have lost a loved one and in the mist of all of this we moved into our little house! But through it all it is God who has kept us and for that I am thankful! With the Christmas season here there are time that we tend to get all caught up in the hustle and bustle of things. This year I am focusing on a simplistic Christmas. I have limited my children to 3 gifts each and of course one from Santa. We try to not be greedy when asking Santa so it is only one gift. I want my children to remember Christmas, not because of the gifts we receive but of the love and joy and family memories they make. There are so many things we can do to make our holiday season less hectic. We can Decorate our Christmas tree with homemade ornaments, and paper chains.
 We also can decorate and make a gingerbread house and make a Christmas count down paper chain.
We can watch movies and read books with our family. There is baking cookies and making fudge and making a popcorn string. So many of these things are simple to do and fun for kids. I like to remember Laura Ingalls' Christmas that I saw on one of the Little house episodes where she received a silver cup, a peppermint stick an orange and a shiny new penny from Santa and she was so elated. It was so simple and plain but yet she thought it was the grandest thing in the world. I want my children to be happy with a few gifts instead of many and enjoy the memories with family and friends. I also want them to know that Christmas is about giving rather than receiving. For the true Reason for the Season is Jesus Christ. He came as a humble babe born in a manger ,Died on the cross for our sin so that we could be saved. Jesus is the one true gift and he is here waiting to be received by all who will invite him into there hearts. So I pray this Christmas season that all will open there hearts and ask Jesus in and receive the greatest gift of all SALVATION! I hope you all have a blessed Christmas!

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…
