In case you didn’t know it, I really desire to help single moms. I remember being there and it’s not easy. (Oh how inadequate that sentence is to describe being a single mother.) At Christmas time, James’ Sunday School class sent home a paper about their project. The class planned to contribute to help 2 […]

On the TOS Crew review forum, someone asked what products have you reviewed that you still use. I thought I’d post that here but I’ll also include non-TOS reviews. ALEKS Math–We paid for a subscription and James used it for the rest of the year. Hewitt Homeschooling Chronicles of State History–James is still working on […]

Works Of God~Share A Blessing

Monday, February 11th, 2013

    Anyone have a blessing this week? I have to admit that I’m almost always surprised that there are so few comments on this post. My purpose was to help people realize how very blessed we are all day every day–big or “little” they are all worth sharing. I’m not trying to guilt you […]

Blessings of Only One Child

Monday, February 4th, 2013

I shared earlier how some people used the fact that I “only had one” to hurt or belittle me. In a comment, someone said that maybe they didn’t intend to hurt me. I have to be very honest with you. I’m often called Pollyanna because I always look at the other side and always try […]

God Is Good ALL The Time

  I saw this saying on a plaque at an online site. I love the saying and it’s so true isn’t it? I made my own print (the saying is NOT copyrighted). Around Christmas time I received a credit to an online photo site so I had this printed as a wall hanging. I hung […]

From Outside The Frame

  I’m considering making this peasant bread today. It’s very cold and bread sounds like a great idea. Here are some recipes we’ve tried and enjoyed lately: Salsa verde chicken–I found the idea here but I made salsa verde this summer with my green tomatoes and canned it. Instead of following this recipe, I put […]
