Best Curriculum Ever!!!

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are enjoying the start of Spring. I know we are here in Idaho. Its been a while since I have had the chance to post anything. We have had some rough months which include sickness, homestead clean up and a few close friends and family members have gone on to be with the Lord. The Lord has showed me that time goes by so fast and is reminding me whats important in this life. To love  the Lord and are family and friends,to spend quality time with them whenever we can because you never know when it may be the last time you see them. With that being said I have had to take a closer look at how I homeschool and why my joy as been smothered out. Sometimes when you have been homeschooling for awhile you tend to get in a rut. I know I have. My son who is a ninth grader is pretty independent and needs very little help, which is great for me. My fifth grader and second grader are another story. They need my constant help and guidance and I feel frazzled and tired from trying to get them to do school and actually enjoy it. Lately I feel as though I am a drill sergeant and always yelling at them and as I look at my day I realize this is not how I envisioned homeschooling.  My fifth grader is a very creative and visual learner, I believe she is a right brained thinker which makes the good old fashion workbooks where you read and answer questions hard and not fun at all. I have even tried Online schooling for the two younger ones but even that was not a good fit. This is where I believe the Lord led me to the most wonderful website ever! Its called www.funschoolingbooks.com and let me tell you this has changed our schooling for the better. These books are journals , and are laid out so the child can choose any books they want and turn it into a curriculum. For instance my daughters have chosen books on Volcanoes, Dinosaurs, George Washington, the Titanic ,Countries and Flags, Famous Scientists ect. and are able to learn from these books and use the journals to guide them. I find my girls starting school on there own with no prodding from me. They are staying more focused and excited about what they are learning because they are choosing things that interest them. I do guide them in the fact that I make them choose something for history  and  science. I am so excited about these books, no it is not your boxed curriculum but for my girls  I believe delight directed learning is the way to go. After homeschooling for almost 9 yrs I am finally seeing that homeschool is not school at home but a way of life and that our days are full with life skills and book learning just not in a traditional way. Sometimes the Lord allows things to happen in your life to make you realize just how precious life is and how every moment with my children is a blessing from God. He gave me three beautiful kiddos to love and guide and to raise for his Glory and to show them that learning is fun and that is how God intended it to be! God Bless.

p.s. This doesn't mean that we never have rough days
anymore, unfortunately those days still exists!

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…
