Life Update!

Hey Everyone!!





Man does time fly, here we are getting ready for fall weather, winter and beyond. It seems like just yesterday it was January 1st. where does the time go. I thought I would give a life update on whats been going on in the last few months. first of all I did a youtube video about how we were raising our own cow. Well that was a while ago and we have since butchered our cow and now have a freezer full of yummy meat!!!! How was the experience you might ask? Well I will be honest the raising the cow was not the hard part, it was when it came time to say goodbye. It's funny because I new all along why we got the cow but didn't realize how sad I would be when the day came to say goodbye. I think it was the hardest on me beings how the cow seemed to like me the most and would only come when I would call him to feed him his grain. But life goes on and over all it was a good experience and I do believe we will be getting another cow come spring. After the cow we became super busy because my oldest daughter decided to try 4-H and raise a market goat. I will just say this, goats are escape artist and we struggled with finding a way to keep our little goat in its pen. But once that was figured out the rest was easy and my daughter I believe has found her calling. She fell in love with her little goat and raised it and trained it all on her own and did so wonderful when it was time to take him to fair and show him. My daughter is a tough little cookie and when it came down to auction him off she was very sad but said" I need to do this so I know how it will feel when he's gone." She struggled with deciding to keep the goat or auction him off knowing what his purpose was. In the end she made me so proud by getting in the ring durning auction time and leading him around like a pro. She made $600 off of that little goat and for her first time ever doing 4-H she did awesome and we will be doing it again. On top of all that we have been working behind the scene  on our property laying under ground sprinklers in our pasture and yard and getting ready for winter, filling the propane tank and getting ready to buy pellets to burn. We spent days camping in the Saw Tooth Mts. and Boating and playing around at the lake. My son has been working a lot and studying hard to finish school by the time he is 16yrs. old and saving to put an engine in his truck. He is such a good kid and works hard for everything he has. Our littlest one is enjoying tumbling again which she does every Wednesday and is thinking of doing 4-H also. We shall see if she ends up doing it. I feel like with fall here we are slowing down just a little from all the summer activities. But I know that will be short lived because Halloween , Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner.......insert a sigh!! lol. Life as a mom is never dull and always keeps me busy. Well thats all for now, 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…
