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!

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…

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 …

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…
