That Child: When you need practical help

That child is always challenging us. Sometimes it’s not just a different perspective. Sometimes it’s not just a crazy idea.  Sometimes it’s not just some imaginative plan that they want to put into place. Sometimes it’s a real attitude that creeps in and they’re just frustrating, and they have this angst within themselves and it […]

There’s a Ram in the Thicket Just for Me!

What is faith if it is not tested? Years after the fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham of a son, Abraham experienced a test that squeezed his faith to the max in the most frightening of all ways for any parent. God told Abraham to take his long-awaited, beloved son Isaac to the land of […]

Escape Through Provision

Have you ever thought about how the Lord provides a way to escape through provision? Honestly, I had never considered that until these past few months. Through my life, I have always thought about how the Lord gives blessings and provides for his children through material possessions. But, now, I can see so much more […]

…and on the 7th week, she rested

pro·vi·sion I woke up this morning and realized July is almost over. GASP! And my blog is due – double whammy! The topic for this month, “provision,” which is: the action of providing or supplying something. I could easily write about another “pro” word, you know, as in procrastination but such is not the topic […]

Wondering About God’s Provision?

I’m not a jigsaw fanatic, but I enjoy working on a good puzzle every now and then. My favorite moment in the puzzling process occurs when I finally locate […]

When We Can’t See God’s Provision

I was so excited. A new school year was starting, and I had all our curriculum in order. With several weeks already planned out, things were going smoothly. Then it happened. Now, I shouldn’t have been surprised. Late summer hurricanes are always a possibility when you live in Florida. However, this one caused a few […]

Seeing God’s Provision in Our Lives

This month we are sharing our thoughts on God’s Provision in our lives. The first verse that came to mind was Philippians 4:19 where as a child of God, I can rest assured that my needs will be met. “And my God shall supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in […]

That Child: They See Things Differently

Today, I want to talk about how “that child” sees so many things differently than you and I do. I have some books I want to recommend and talk through. These are works that have completely changed the way I approach mothering and homeschooling.   First, The Way They Learn by Cynthia Tobias. I would highly recommend […]

Provision in Temptation

No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to humanity. God is faithful, and He will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with temptation He will also provide a way of escape so that you are able to bear it.  1 Corinthians 10:13 (HCSB) None of us are […]
