Titus 2 Time: Have You Curbed Your Tongue?




 "The wise of heart is called discerning and 

sweetness of speech increases persuasiveness."


The Lord has been putting this on my heart lately. 

I know that there is no one perfect out there when it come to their tongue. 

We can use it for building up or for tearing down.

Words have the power of life and death. 

What Kindergarten Curriculum I Use




Last year my youngest sweet little daughter Bella was in Kindergarten. I always get asked what I used so I thought I would also share here today. 

As some of you know I have been homeschooling for over 25 years. Back then they did not have all the options they do now, but I have to say I am pretty content with what I have used for this grade level which is the Abeka curriculum. The colorful pages and and fun exercises were a hit with my daughter too.

The Big List of Back-to-Homeschool Supplies




This year our local schools seemed to go back pretty early in early and mid August. I am wondering what happened to the old days when schools would start after Labor Day? The summer just keeps feeling shorter and shorter.

But I know that probably works out for many of you--to have your children in school early or when the heat is on and you can't bare to hit the outdoors and prefer to hit the books instead!

Mothers: "How Will This Affect Their Souls?"






Train with this thought continually before your eyes—that the soul of your child is the first thing to be considered.

Precious, no doubt, are these little ones in your eyes; but if you truly love them, then often think about their souls. Nothing should concern you as greatly as their eternal destiny. No part of them should be so dear to you as that part which will never die. The world, with all its glory, will pass away; "The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare." But the spirit which dwells in those little creatures, whom you love so well, will outlive them all, and whether they spend eternity in happiness or misery will depend a lot on you (speaking from man’s perspective).


This is the thought that should be uppermost on your mind in all that you do for your children. In every step you take about them, in every plan, and scheme, and arrangement that concerns them, do not leave out that mighty question, "How will this affect their souls?"

To love the soul is to really love. To pet and pamper and indulge your child, as if this world was all he had to look forward to, and this life the only period of happiness—to do this is not true love, but cruelty. It is treating him like some beast of the earth, which has only one world to look to, and nothing after death. It is hiding from him that grand truth, which he ought to be made to learn from his very infancy—that the number one goal of his life is the salvation of his soul.





(19th Century Preacher)









And finally, dear friend, do you know the Lord and if you are going to heaven? Please read this to be sure.

If you need help learning God's Word be sure to find a good Bible.

10 Ways to Teach Your Children Godly Character This Summer


Today I wanted  to share a few ways to teach your children godly character through the summer.
 
This might be your first year that you purposefully decide to try to instill more character in them--or you just might feel your children need to focus more on it! (Don't we all feel that way sometimes?) Our children are definitely not perfect and we always should be trying to reach their hearts with the truth of God's word.

Memorial Day - Freedom Isn't Free {& Helpful Resources}


The Memorial Day weekend is upon us and I thought it would be a great time to share with our children the true meaning of the day. 

We all know that freedom isn't free and that many had to pay the ultimate price with their lives. 

My father fought in the Vietnam War and one day while they were there he was in a helicopter close to the ground with his best friend and his friend was shot in the head right in front of him and didn't make it.

Our Favorite Lamplighter Books {& AudioDrama}


Growing up, several of my now adult children enjoyed many of the Lamplighter books. If you have not heard of them, they are a collection of rich vintage books that inspire young and old with their captivating and inspirational characters. Some of the Lamplighter book collections even contain stories from history.  And they are a great choice when wanting to get some rich literature in.

How to Build Up & Bless Your Home in 2021



Never has it been more important to build up godly homes than in the circumstances we are living in today!

And when the world is falling apart all around us, it is even more the reason to build up strong homes for the Lord.

Mothers, YOU build the culture in your homes. Preserve it, nourish it, and cultivate it. Don't let Satan rob you of this important job either.

Don't let fear and sin creep into your homes. Guard it, protect it, and watch and pray over it. Satan comes to steal kill and destroy and he wants your children and to destroy your marriage. Be sober and vigilant to stay in His Word.
