Outside my window...Sunny and Quiet
I am thinking.. .How nice it will be when my kids and grandkids get moved across the street from us

On my mind… Relationships that need working on
From the kitchen.. Stuff that needs to be done
Noticing that… I am slower and ready t be a little slower paced in my life
My Scripture thought: I Peter 5:8

Basic Training In the Home

Train up a child in the way he should go:and when he is old, he will not depart from it.  Proverbs 22:6
Anyone who knows me knows I love this verse.  It reminds me that all we can do is teach our kids right and teach the way of the Lord, take them to church and train them to serve the Lord.  They may mess up as we all do but they will always have that training in their heart.
I was reading my devotion for this morning from a book called "Prayers & Promises for Women"  I thought I would share part of it it with ya'll.  It says...
"I am no educator,Father,and my knowledge of theology is far from great,but I long to teach my children about You through my daily life and example."
I have heard we teach alot by what we say but more by what we do.  Anyway this devotion got me to thinking, what am I teaching my children and grandchildren especially by what I do as well as say.  We are all training the children and others in our lives, but what are we teaching?  Are we …


I got to go to church tonight-we are having revival. So many times at church I am working with the kiddos and I love that and them. Tonight I was in the service though and it was amazing. You could feel the Holy Spirit moving in the service. There was singing, testimonies and almost everyone in the building went to the altar to pray with their family. There was husbands and wives, parents and kids, inlaws and friends. I was privileged to get to pray with both my sons. Church started at 7 pm and it was 8:15 before Bro. Chris Dallas started preaching but God was preaching all night long. As they say, it was good to be in Gods house and He was definitely home. It was one of the best services I have experienced in a long time.

I am also so thankful for Amanda and Jenny keeping the kiddos and babies so others could be in the service. They were a big part of the service and I want to publically say Thanks to both of them and also to Gabi and Amber M for helping them.

Just wanted t…

New School Year 2010

My youngest son, Stephen, is homeschooled but he does ACE paces from our churches Christian school. We also do extra things to add to the paces. We do field trips, we do Home Economics and we do life skills classes among other things. Today was our technical first day and it was interesting but we made it through. I love having him at home and teaching him, it is a blessing from God.

Today we started off with a bang-he did his Hope stuff(a program our church runs on Friday nights), read his bible and worked on his memory verses. After that it was on to paces. We were doing real good and then we took lunch break.

After lunch I had to keep the grands so we did not get a whole lot done this afternoon in paces but we used the opportunity to learn some life skills. He can help with the babies as good as I can. After they went home we continued on with our journey with him cooking supper for Mrs. Peggy-she is our church secretary. She is in her 70's and fell and br…

Welcome to my blog.....

Welcome to my new blog. I have tried blogging on another site but they made too many changes and it was really just about homeschooling. Homeschooling is a part of our life but only one part. I am starting a blog here to share a little about all our life with family and friends near and far. I hope you will enjoy visiting with us and come back often to see what is going on in our little corner of the world.
God bless,
Pat and family
