My top 5 Homeschool must haves!!!!

Hey guys!

Today I am going to share my top 5 homeschool must haves.

# 1
 If you are a homeschooling parent you definitely need these products. If you are new to homeschooling then I highly recommend reading the book The Successful Family Homeschooling Handbook this book is full of advice on how to homeschool your child, how to not feel pressured if your child isn't reading yet and testimonies of other parents and how they homeschool. I refer back to this book when ever I feel stressed that my children are not where I think they should be in there homeschool journey and it always gives me peace knowing I am doing the right thing and that my kids are learning.

# 2
The second book I recommend is the Jim Trelease Read-A-Loud Handbook  this book is great for finding out what books are great for each grade level. You can search through the book and find books you like and see if they would be appropriate for your child's grade level. Nothing is worse when you choose a book to read aloud and your kids aren't able to follow along.

The third one is The High School Handbook . If you have a high schooler then you need this book it tells you all about how to keep track of credits and transcripts, and talks about electives and subjects. It also has sample transcripts so you get an idea of how to do one, In the back of the book there are blank transcripts that you can copy off and use. I love this book and it has helped me tremendously with my high Schooler.

# 4
If you like the Charlotte Mason style of homeschooling then you need The Charlotte Mason Companion this book is great if you have a lot of children you are trying to homeschool at once. It tells you how to combine subjects and also talks about how children learn better with short study times and getting out in nature. I love this book!

# 5
 I recommend  Teaching Textbooks this is the best well rounded curriculum I have found and it starts at 3rd grade and goes all the way up to calculus. If you are anything like me and struggled with math as a student then this is the way to go not only does it teach the lesson but grades it also. I can't say enough good things about this product.

I hope this post helps other homeschooling families and 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…
