Merry Christmas From The Humble Homestead!




Merry Christmas




It's that time of year!

Time to embrace the Christmas Season and all its hustle and bustle. But let's not forget the real reason we celebrate Christ-mas. We have so much to be grateful for and especially the birth of our Saviour. As the commercials promote buying cars and expensive jewelry as a Christmas gift for a loved one let's remember that celebrating our Saviour doesn't cost a thing. That spending time, baking cookies, or playing board games with our family doesn't cost a thing either. We tend to get so caught up in the gift-giving that we forget what we should really be dwelling on and that is LOVE! The Love that Jesus gives us freely if we will just let him into our lives and the Love we get from family. I am at fault for getting caught up in the gift-giving and trying to give my kids a nice Christmas there is nothing wrong with that as long as you don't go into debt for it. But the Lord quickens my spirit when I start getting overwhelmed and reminds me that I need to slow down and just meditate on him and his word. I need to read books with my girls and play games. I need to bake cookies and just be in the moment with them. Life is hard and unpredictable but one thing that is always constant is JESUS! So I pray that you have a wonderful LOVE filled Christ-mas. Let's savor the moments we have today and not dwell on what's to come because you never know what tomorrow may hold. God Bless and spread some Christmas Joy!!!

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…
