Happy New Year!


Well another year has come and gone. It doesn't seem possible that we have lived in our new little house for over a year and a half. We have accomplished so much in the past year..... We got more chickens, and a cow. We fenced our whole property, put up a wall in the kids room ( which still needs to be completed) that's an ongoing project. We planted a yard made a spot for a pool ,planted some trees and a garden. I am sure there are more things that I am forgetting but you get the picture. We had lots of ups and downs but in the midst of it all we praise the Lord for he is good to us. So what does the new year hold for our family. Well lets see, my son started a job at McDonalds in our small town so he is excited about that, last year he bought a truck that he is going to fix up with his dad so having a job will help finance all that. My girls are learning the ways of a homemaker and I intend to do more sewing with them. I am going to try and eat healthier lose some weight and try to organize my home more although I say that every year I'm also going to be working on a new curriculum book for k-2nd grade....... we shall see how that goes. My husband is a hard working man devoted to providing for his family and also spending as much time with us as he possibly can. We are praying for a new job in the new year one that allows him to have have a normal work day and have dinner with us each night. I am sure I am not alone in this category. My youngest daughter tells me daily that she wishes dad could stay home and harvest corn just like Pa Ingalls. It touches my heart deeply to hear her say that. We plan on butchering our cow this year and and possibly getting some pigs to raise. Our home is always a work in progress so I am sure we will work on that also maybe finishing the small touches inside the house and if we are real ambitious maybe tackle the outside and paint the whole house. I hope everyone has a blessed New Year and finds time to step back, put God first ,family second and yourself last and enjoy the Simple Things In Life!!!

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…
