Homeschool Rhythm- Why you need it!

Hello Friends,

Well, once again I woke up to grumpy kids not wanting to do school. Are you like me, do you struggle with getting your day going especially if you homeschool? Well, that is why a homeschool Daily Rhythm is so important. Not only will you feel more relaxed but so will your kids. 

What is a homeschool rhythm? Well, it is how your day starts and ends and everything in between. How it ebbs and flows. Most of us have a rhythm to our days and we may not even know it. But is our rhythm hectic or peaceful? This is what I want to emphasize on today, making a peaceful homeschool rhythm. Many of us have a routine which in a way is a rhythm. We may wake up, eat breakfast, do some chores and start school. But is it peaceful? I know sometimes my mornings are so hectic and the kids are so grumpy it sets the mood for the entire day. This is just stressful, it makes me feel so sad that the day did not go as planned and the atmosphere was gloomy.  So how can we make a better rhythm to our day especially our mornings? When let's be honest most of us are tired and grumpy and don't feel like doing anything. Here are a few tips that may help.

1. Wake your children up at an earlier time so they may have time to cuddle on the couch and just wake up. I know I like to sit and have coffee and read while I'm trying to wake up so they may be the same way.

 2. Set the MOOD. Light some candles or an oil lamp and play soft music instead of watching t.v. My girls love this kind of stuff, you can even read aloud to your children while they get breakfast.

3.  Have a simple breakfast. Something they can make themselves or that you made the night before.

4. Have your children get ready and tidy up before they even start school.

5. Start your school day. Now, this may still cause some grumbling but press through the negative and try to be positive when helping your children start their school, if you have a peaceful response it will help them too also have a peaceful attitude.

And lastly, keep your morning rhythm the same so that your children will know what to expect each morning and in the end, it will become a habit for them. It has been said that it takes 30 days to form a habit. So give yourself a month to try your new Rhythm out. 
We have had a routine for our homeschool as long as I can remember but I am going to try and implement a warm and encouraging Rhythm to our homeschool days. One that my girls will look forward to every day. A happy homeschool starts with the parent having a great outlook on the day and not letting emotions and worries stand in the way. Pray before you wake your kids up for the day and ask the Lord to Bless your day because to be a stay at home parent and homeschooler is a calling that the Lord has laid on our hearts and he hears our prayers! I hope this helps you to find a more peaceful rhythm to your day 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…
