to blog or not to blog {the end of the 31 day challenge}

When I started this 31 day challenge, I really had no idea what to expect.  I am a new blogger and had entertained the thought of making it part of my daily routine.  I am not, by nature, a very creative person and this blog is one of the very few ways that I express […]

a nutritional overhaul {day twenty-two}

I had an interesting conversation with my littles while we were eating dinner tonight.  In our house, taco night is a favorite of all.  But tonight, my oldest littles commented that the tacos tasted a little different.  I explained to them that it was because I used homemade taco seasoning and slow cooked black beans […]

looking inward {day twenty-one}

One thing that I’ve come to realize about myself in the past 28 days is that I am nowhere close to being the person that I thought I was or the person that I want to be.  I feel like I’m always looking at ways to improve as a wife, mother, homemaker, educator, and so […]

intentionally fruitful {day twenty}

Many people are familiar Galatians 5:22-23, otherwise known as the “Fruits of the Spirit”.  Thus far, we’ve covered the first four; love, joy, peace, and patience.  Today I’d like to look at the rest of the fruits. Before I go any further, I’d like you to read the passage of scripture that comes just before […]

life happens {day nineteen}

When I started this 31 day challenge, I wasn’t at all concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find enough to say about my chosen topic.  However, I was a little worried that I might not be able to commit to writing every single day, being the busy mama that I am.  And sure enough, […]

patience is a virtue {day eighteen}

 The Lord speaks in Galatians 5:22 of several fruits of the spirit.  We’ve discussed a few of them so far.  But the fruit that we are talking of today is the one that I struggle with exhibiting more than any of the others. I’m a go go go kind of girl.  I like things to be […]

looking for peace {day seventeen}

“The Lord gives strength to his people; the Lord blesses his people with peace.”  Psalm 29:11 As a mother I find that one of the things I’m constantly praying for is peace.  And strength is definitely a close second.  Being a parent is tough.  Anyone who disagrees with me, obviously hasn’t tried it. But as […]

molding young minds {day sixteen}

In May of this year, Husby and I made a decision that we both knew would greatly affect our family.  We had both become increasingly frustrated with the public school system and what our children were being exposed to.  So, we prayed and researched and finally made the decision to join the ranks of homeschoolers.  […]

finding joy {day fifteen}

When we have the Holy Spirit living within us, we are able to experience TRUE joy.  True joy is the kind of happiness that radiates from within your soul.  People look at you and can see the light of the Lord shining through you.  This is the kind of joy that I long for. The […]

let’s recap {day fourteen}

This month has not been an easy one for me. I’ll admit it. There are days when it has been downright difficult to be the best version of “me”. I’ve been cranky and irritable and hard to get along with at times. And I believe that the reason is quite simple.  Satan knows that, by […]
