Re: Using MFW with a child hostile to the Gospel, Bible, etc

I will be praying for you Katrina. You as well, momxnine. My son is 6.5, and while he truly loves God with all of his heart, he is very defiant right now. I think he has a lot of anger because his brother died, and his grief is very hard at times. My husband and I eased up on discipline out of sheer...

Re: MFW1 is getting harder!

This is helpful! It's good to know I am not the only one. :) That's a good idea to do the Proverbs over two days. I may give that a try if he struggles next week.

Thank you for your ideas and your experience!

Re: Finishing 1st grade -- but have weeks more to fill

Hi there ladies! I found this particular post to be very interesting!!! As some of you know already, we used MFW1 with my oldest and we stopped about day 125ish. It was a blessing, because we enjoyed that couple of months just exploring God's creation, getting together with other friends and their c...

Re: I actually pushed the button.... no turning back..

I just wanted to say hi and let you know that you aren't alone. I too struggle with sinful pride and wanting my son to be advanced in his reading skills (which he is not). Actually today, I felt God saying that He didn't give me my children as an item to show off to others. They are His, yet we get ...

Re: How to choose K or 1st?

blessingtree- You are absolutely welcome!!! I wanted to clarify two things (to encourage you). I meant to say Ethan was reading at about a 4th grade reading level by day 120! We actually never "finished" the entire year--we lacked about 40 days. God was the one who orchestrated us stopping suddenly ...

Does anyone have any suggestions for homeschooling books for parents to read? I just finished reading For the Sake of the Children that came with the MFW K Deluxe package and really enjoyed it!

Hi! (Introduction/Sort of New Here)

Hi, I just wanted to stop by and say hi and introduce myself. We are a military family. We've been a homeschooling family for 3 years now. Ethan (he would be 9) is now with Jesus. Evan is 6, and currently K (we are using another curriculum similar to MFW). We are sort of burnt out with our current "...
