Daughter: Mom can I look up some information on Greek Mythology today???

Me: Why, yes you can !!!! Let me show you a website that is safe for you to use.

This was the question my daughter came and asked me today. I was so thrilled! Here she is doing her school and reading different books for literature, and the book she is reading right now is about Greek Mythology which she chose to read. This is why I love Delight Directed Learning. Now she is going to go one step further and start researching this topic all on her own.  She showed me a little folder that she started that has information about Greek Mythology. When you give a child the freedom to learn about things that interest them, they tend to dig a little deeper because it's a subject they like. This has especially rang true for my 13 year old daughter. With learning this way it goes even further into real life, for example just the other day it was storming outside. As we were walking it started to thunder and lighting started striking across the sky. This prompted a wonderful conversation about clouds , lighting and thunder with my girls. The out come of that conversation boiled over into the next days studies and ended up looking through encyclopedias about weather! That became the nature study for the day. Children are like little sponges just waiting to soak up knowledge if only we can find what peeks their interest. Thats where Delight Directed Learning comes in. If you find your child is struggling to retain information try delight directed, and if you are a little unsure how to start check out my curriculum books I have created for my girls , its all laid out day by day and is self explanatory! I hope this post helps and  you find it encouraging. What ways have you used to help peek your childs interest??? God Blesss!

Why I created A Delight Directed Curriculum!!!

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 …

How To Budget (Envelope System)

Good Morning Everyone!




It is a wonderful morning and I am up and at em!!!! I already did my workout for the day and I am feeling good. Today we are going to focus on how to start a budget that you can stick to. I know for most people this is very hard but I promise if you can get a budget and stick to it you will conquer your finances. Budgeting is the number one way that has allowed me to stay at home with my kids and live on one income. I am strict and budget every dollar my husband brings in. Two years ago my husband was able to take a lower-paying job with less stress making half of what he was making because we budgeted and were frugal. Now that he has a better paying job which we are so blessed that he has, we understand that we can make it on very little and still have a happy healthy lifestyle all because of budgeting. So let's get to it!

First of all, when starting a budget you need to calculate your monthly expenses. I'm talking mortgage, rent, utilities, clothing, …

Do I Dare Talk About This??

Do I dare talk about this????


Well, lets get real and talk about when your child is strong willed and discipline, I know this is a touchy subject but thought I would share my view of it. Speaking from experience I know what its like to lose your mind as a parent when your child is defiant and just refuses to obey. My middle daughter was quiet a character as a toddler and young child, but as a preteen she is growing into a very lovely young lady. She has tried my patience many times and there were times I felt as though I just disciplined her all day long. She was a very stubborn toddler and child but because I am a christian I believe what the word of God says. I would rather give a quick swift spank and be done with the correction then to drag it out by forcing her to sit in time out all day long.

''Whoever spares the rod hates his son, but he who loves him is diligent to discipline him.''
