Why I Don't Have Facebook!


Disclosure: This is my personally opinion and thoughts about social media if you don't agree then that's ok this is a free country and I am able to voice my thoughts just like everyone else in the world.Read this post at your own discretion or go checkout some of my other posts! Thanks





Look at their life! Wow they get to travel all the time! Their kids get to do a million different sports! Wish I had a new car!............






These are the thoughts that go through most of our minds when we see other people on facebook posting all the glorious things that they are doing and how great their life is! Might I add these thoughts went through my mind as well. That's when the Lord convicted me about my facebook and why I deleted it not just once but twice. You see I was beginning to spend more time on social media wishing I could do what other people were doing.I was getting irritated with people I new and how they would post pictures of there life and make comments about how everything was great and grand. The sad part is I new these people and new there real life and how it was not so great all the time. I would end up spending hours looking through everyones facebook instead of tending to my own life and family. So the Lord convicted me about how I was spending my time. I had to really check my heart and ask God to help me. So I deleted FACEBOOK for ever!!!!! Let me just say that my life is more rich and full of real life happenings and spending time tending to my family and home more. I am not saying Facebook is bad but when your heart is not content with the life you live and your time is taken away from your children and home then Facebook has become a problem. Everything in moderation Right? I am so happy that I do not have a facebook and I don't feel like I am missing out on anything. Instead my days are consumed with keeping my home and homeschooling my children and teaching them how to become responsible adults one day. Maybe there would be a lot less car accidents, shootings, and cyber bullying and a lot of other things if people would just put down their cell phones and tablets and social media and actually live life in stead of wanting someone else's life. Everyday is a blessing from the Lord lets spend is wisely as we are not guaranteed our next breathe. Ask the Lord to help you to be more present in your own life and see the benefits and blessings that come from it. God Bless!

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…
