Not Back-to-School Blog Hop: Curriculum Week

     I’m so excited to be participating in the 3rd annual Not Back-to-School Blog Hop, hosted by Heart of the Matter Online. This will be my first time participating.The hop is kicking off with curriculum week!
We all love seeing what everyone is using, so be sure to check out all the posts on the hop.
     We came to homeschool late in the game, my older two went to and graduated from public school.  This was my husbands wish and honestly it was what fit best in our life at the time we thought.  However they both went on to go to Christian college.  Our youngest went through middle school in public school.  However many things finally convinced hubby to let us try homeschooling starting at junior high and we have been going since then.  This will be our 5th year homeschooling.
      Our son does ACE paces through our churches christian school but we supplement with many other choices of curriculum.  This year we will be supplementing with reading books of choices and doing both written and oral book reports. We do a biblical study with different character studies for bible and as well as daily reading in the bible and at least one verse that God leads us to and recorded in a journal.  We will be doing Home Ec cause I believe boys should know how to care for the home too in case wife is sick or God does not lead them to one.  We will be doing a business course of sorts with budgeting, check writing, balancing and all that.  Also he will be doing a yard and car maintenance course.  We will be studying for and taking the drivers test.  We will also be working on oral communications.  This is not all laid out as it should be but prayerfully before the 15th I will have it all planned and ready.  We also have physical education and field trips planned.
     This is our simple plans at the moment and prayerfully God will lead us to the exact place he wants us to go.  Praying that everyone who reads here will also have a blessed year in their school.
God bless,
Pat

Happy 16th Birthday Stephen Austin Love!

From this little baby born on April 7, 1995 to the wonderful young man you have became April 7, 2011 Moma and Daddy were so blessed the day you were born and grow more blessed with each passing year.  I pray God will richly bless you this year.  Let Him be your guide and follow Him and do His will and you will be right where you need to be.  We love you!

What If?

Saw this on a friends blog and had to share-Before you gripe about another petty something about your spouse or child-think how how you would feel if you woke up without them tomorrow. Man this hit me in the face and really made me really think! :(
     Then, I found this quote above about what if you woke up today with only what you thanked God for yesterday.  Who or what would you still have?  Would you have your spouse, your kids, your friends, your home, car, anything?  Again, this really made me think and I ashamed to say I am not sure I like my answers to the above questions.
     I cannot change the past as none of us can but I am going to really work on changing my answers and my life.  I know I need to really work on this but I am sharing it in the hope it might help others as well.  
God bless,
Pat


Faith Over Fear! I Choose Faith!

I have been feeling overwhelmed and stressed for quite some time.  I have tried so many ways to make it better and even tried just giving up.  I have been doing lots of praying, talking to friends and even more talking to God.  I am now choosing faith over fear.  Faith over the fear I am not good enough; faith over the fear that God doesn't love me; faith over the fear of what other people think; faith over choosing the world and the lie of busyness to not make time for me and God.

     There have been hurricanes, tornadoes and floods over much of the country.  They are devastating and people think they can never overcome this.The storms of life are much the same.They are hard and devastating and we will like things are beyond our understanding and out of our life is out of control.This is where faith comes in.  We have to have faith in what we cannot see, what we can not understand and in God.  We have to choose faith over fear.


     Faith comes in trusting God and that He wan…
