Encouraging Success in Your Children

encouragement homeschool Homeschooling Inspiration motherhood raising children with God spiritual practice

I often speak and write about nurturing our children’s gifts, talents, and passions—about encouraging their success. Homeschooling offers the unique opportunity to tailor our children’s education to their own personal bents. We don’t have to follow the standard scope and sequence designed for a typical student. The cookie-cutter mentality is often why students leave high school and college not knowing what they are going to do with their lives. They spend so much time focusing on that which is not their area of giftedness that they have no time to develop or even discover their true strengths and passions. As […]

Being Still

Being still means living in a state of internal rest. I often forget that the Lord desires this for me and that He, Himself, offers me this rest. It is part of my inheritance. As a believer, a child of the King, I’m given many blessings including the choice to live a life of peaceful rest—even in the midst of great turmoil. A few years back I was under tremendous stress. I kept asking God to help me complete all my tasks and give me guidance as I attempted to accomplish the lengthy list before me. I then felt this […]

In this post, I will describe some of the most common homeschool methodologies used by families today. Classical Classical homeschoolers follow the Classical Greek model of the Trivium.

Say Goodbye to Fear

discipling encouragement faith fear Inspiration motherhood spiritual practice

There are times when I’m going about my day feeling pretty good about life, then without warning, a negative thought presents itself. Maybe it’s a memory of something I did wrong in the past, or a memory of something someone else did that hurt me; maybe it’s a thought about some horrible future event I hope never happens; maybe it’s concerning an issue I’m dealing with currently. The thought comes, and I focus on it for a moment—just long enough to cause my heart to tremble—then my thoughts move on. Though they’ve moved on, my heart remains in a tremble. […]
