Re: Still need help All in One Eng & update on memorizing Ja

Re: Why Did Solomon Ask for Wisdom? - Minutes with Marie

Thank you very much for sharing this, Marie. Our words are so powerful, so much so that we can speak both life and death. I choose life today and for the days I have on this earth. I am grateful to have been reminded of this today. ;)

Re: Minutes with Marie - Trust Him

Marie, thank you so much for sharing this reminder! When I begin to doubt my ability to raise up and train our children, I allow my fears to bring about double-mindedness and distraction.

Re: Recently switched back to MFW, need encouragement, long.

Homemama, I feel what you are feeling, sister in Christ! I have been back and forth for the past 3 years on certain subjects and feel like we've missed out on several things. We began with RtR (4th & 7th grades) and AHL (9h grade) in July, then decided to try something else that "seemed" like it wou...

Re: Lapbooks with CTG?

Thank you so much for your wonderful ideas, everyone! I don't post on here very often but when I do, I KNOW that I'll receive heart-felt truth and encouragement!
