I share links and ideas to encourage other mothers: to seek the Lord first in all things, to thrive in motherhood and family life, and instill a love of country in our children.

I recently read that the average person must intentionally interact with a piece of information 8 times before it is in permanent memory.

This made me think of the times I get frustrated with my children when they don't remember math or Latin from the previous day even though "we have gone over this a million times!!"


Go over it one more time with patience, Mamas. (I'm mostly speaking to myself, here.)

YES. My prayer for my children as well. ❤️🙏

I certainly won’t complain if my boys grow up to accomplish great things and become successful, but that’s not my prayer for them. I just want them to become men who love God and keep their promises.
YES. This is quite accurate.
Free Ben Franklin Unit Study for K through 12

This is an excellent resource if you're looking for a new unit study on Benjamin Franklin!

While it's written for a traditional school setting, you can easily adapt this to a home environment.

Also, if you've never created a unit study, this would be a good model for future studies.

In a world where discouraging news often gets the most coverage, I've got some good news:

No matter WHO you are...

WHERE you've been...

WHAT you've done...

WHY you did it...

or HOW long you've kept doing it...

God loves you.

He loves you so much He sent His Son Jesus to pay the punishment for sin so we could have a relationship with Him.

He freely offers you grace and mercy today; all you have to do is call on Him.

This is the truth: WHEN He enters your life, you'll never be the same.

"For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved" (Romans 10:13).

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness" (1 John 1:9).

Faith of Our Fathers: Scenes from American Church History

My children and I always do Bible Time Plus One each morning to start our homeschool day.

Right now, our Plus One is reading through this powerful little book from BJU.

We read about a faithful servant of the Lord each day, and it puts us in the right frame of mind to start our studies.

Highly recommended!

"The experience has really highlighted for me how narrowly we allow our children scope for success. In both Christian and non-Christian society, children are valued if they are obedient, rarely or never questioning adult wisdom, quick at schooly sorts of academic tasks (multiplication tables, spelling tests), and infinitely interruptable for whatever next thing a grown up wants done right now but able to stay on task without distraction when that is convenient for us. The irony is that in both Christian and non-Christian society, the people who we most admire and consider successful rarely do anything like what we expect of children: they are innovative, creative, willing to rock boats, think for themselves, follow their inspiration (or God’s leading, if that is the phrase preferred) even when the conventional wisdom is discouraging. How do we expect our children to grow up to be these people if we never let them have the learning experiences in childhood in which to find and practices these skills?"
It's World Bee Day!

I didn't even know this was a thing until a few minutes ago. 😂 But I'm tickled it is! We love bees.

I study bees with my children each and every year. Take a trip to the library and study bees next week with your young ones. Here are some book ideas and printable activities to get your wheels spinning.

Alphabet Beginning Sounds Posters

My 5 year old boy and I will be working our way through this batch of Alphabet Beginning Sounds Posters this summer.

We used them back in the fall, and I tucked them away. I found out early in my homeschooling life that putting something away for a few months and then bringing it back out made it seemingly brand new. Win!

This article states that there is an average of 22 weeks of learning loss for public school children due to schools going remote during Covid lockdowns.

What is so sad to me in this particular article is that there is no parent accountability for this glaring learning loss.

The idea is for the local Boards of Education to "solve" this problem - more money, more teachers, summer school (again, more money needed).

Where are the parents of these students who are so woefully behind?

Parents are ultimately responsible for their child's education. Not the government.

And he memorized it! 😍 👇
