Why Every Kid Should Have A Pet

As a parent when our kids ask us if they can have a pet we tend to automatically say No! I know I have been guilty of that also. In our minds we think about the time and mess and the cost of feed to keep a pet and how that will affect our day to day lives. But in the long run a pet or pets can teach kids so many things and that is what I want to talk about today.


First of all when a child gets a pet they realize their self worth. They feel important because they now have become a parent of sorts to an adorable animal. When you give a child an animal there are many life lessons they can learn.

# 1. They learn about the the birds and the bees through animal husbandry and watching the birth of babies being born.
# 2. They learn how to care for animals. How to feed, water and clean there habitat.
# 3. They learn how to treat an animal with kindness and not be rough and to respect them.
# 4. They learn how to put something else before themselves teaching them selflessness.
# 5. They learn about Life and Death and how to deal with a loss when they lose an animal.


All of these lessons teach the child responsibility which in the long run will carry over into adult hood. And lets face it isn't that what we all want for our kids. To be responsible, respectable, caring people. I know I do. So that is the reason we have animals and why my house is clean but never spotless. Having animals are a blessing or else God would not have created them. They are here for a purpose, to teach us to love and be loved! So the next time your child asks for a pet maybe think it over before you say NO!

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…
