By now you probably know that we love audio dramas in this household. Well, today I get to introduce you to another audio drama, Brinkman Adventures. I was lucky enough to receive Brinkman Adventures Season 4 for review and have been happily listening to the many, many episodes this season holds. Let me share with you what this season holds and how this audio drama can help your kids grow a missional heart. As a Christian, finding ways to help touch your child’s heart with the gospel can be challenging. It is always a wonderful surprise when we find new ways to do so at home that do not include worksheets or family devotions. While these are very helpful finding ways that bring the gospel […]
Given the title of this review, this is one I needed to hand over to hubby to handle. He worked with our boys through this kit and has written the review himself, for you. So, without further adieu, here is my Hubby’s review… My wife who is part of Homeschool Review Crew let me know about Manhood Journey Father’s Starter Kit by City on a Hill Studio. With being the father of three boys, I was obviously curious about it. I have been looking for the right product to help disciple my boys for a while. I have found the usual books and DVDs but the way that this was laid out, I was compelled. I am wary of Christian products in this […]
I don’t know about you, but this time of year really makes me think about what I wish I could do. The year being new brings a lot of hope into view and questions of what could be. However, dwelling on those questions can also get us into a mindset of thinking negatively about ourselves. Sure there are always things we can work on or improve upon, but to be thinking we aren’t good enough or can’t measure up won’t get us to where we need to be, where God wants us to be. Is there a balance in our thinking? How can we question ourselves and still have a positive outlook? If you are in this boat or wondering the same, keep reading and […]
This is the third post in our series on Love. What is love, and what does it look like? We want to dig into the character of love and answer those questions. If you are just finding us, go ahead and check out the first two posts, Love Is…Patient and Love Is…Kind. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. 1 Corinthians 13: 4-8a NIV Envy and Boast are opposite sides of […]
The Christmas and New Year’s holiday rush has ended. Homeschooling began a couple of weeks ago and now it has hit…the Winter Blues. Blues? or Itch? Blues seem so negative and well that is because they are. To me, the itch is a new beginning, and that is a much more positive way of looking at this time of year. So what are the positives and how can we get away from looking at this time of year as the Blues? That is just what this is all about. Hopefully you to can go from thinking of the Blues to the Itch by the end of this post. The Many Blessing of these Winter Months House gets more Organized As I have written about in other […]
We are taking some time each week to focus on Getting into God’s Word. We have talked about devoting some time each day to God and how we make that time with God into a habit. We have talked about where to start reading and why starting in the Book of John is my first choice for anyone just starting to read the Bible regularly. Now that we have gone over all that, it is time to expand on our time with God. How do we expand on reading?
Starting today, every Wednesday through January we will be digging into God’s Word. On the agenda for today, finding time. It amazes me how we are able to find time for T.V and trips to the store to buy lots of things we really don’t need, but when it comes to spending time in God’s word, we somehow come back with saying there just is not enough time in the day to make it happen. Don’t think I am not guilty of this, because I sure am. So how can we go from excuses to habit?
Today was the day, finally. We had to postpone our library donation day because we misjudged when the library closes and missed them by about 15 minutes, earlier this week. We were all ready to have a great experience and see the joy in the librarian’s face as we handed over some much loved, great condition books. However, this experience was not quite what we had expected.
Yesterday, I talked about how many things have broke, don’t fit or can’t be found all within this past week. Well today was no exception. I was awakened to our youngest yelling at me to get up. It was really early for him to be up, so I asked him politely to stop yelling at me and tell me nicely what he needed. “There’s a fire!” I jumped up to see what was going on and then I saw it. Ah, my little one was at it again. He was trying so hard to be just like his big brother.
