Re: 2014-2015 Roll Call

Hi everyone, I too seem to be on the older end of the crowd here;) We have been homeschooling for 8 years using a rather eclectic approach to learning.

Re: Your Father LOVES You!

Thank you Marie. God used you today to speak to me! Your words are wise. I need to think of not only myself with God when reading this, but it even applies to how my children react to the love we offer. However, I often look down on my own self and therefore show my kids a poor example of how to acc...

Remembering that we are primarily working on the basics. This is a lovely way to do history that is thorough, yet pleasant and ...
