Train up our Children in the Way they Should Go

Vision? What is the vision for your family? What is the vision for your children? Are you walking aimlessly or are you walking with a purpose. Are we as parents teaching our children to walk with purpose; to walk in the calling they have on their lives?

As homeschooling parents, we have a huge responsibility to make sure our children are learning the right information. We want to make sure they are successful in all they do and make sure there are no gaps in their education. STOP!!! Are we losing focus here? What does God want? Have we asked Him lately to show us what direction our childen should take? Or are we just filling their minds with useless knowledge? Most of the information we throw at them they will forget a day from now. But the things the LORD has chosen for them, will remain for eternity.

Yes, we as homeschooling parents have a huge responsibility; the responsibility to teach and train up our children in the way they should go. This is made known by seeking the Lord Himself. A God led education is the most valuable education any child can receive. Why? Because it is led by the One who has known our children from before they were born.

How do we know what to teach and how to train for their lives? As we lay our thoughts and ideas before Him, then the information we need will come naturally. This takes time. Time to seek and pray and wait to hear what we should do. The Lord is teaching us patience as we wait for His answers and to put all our trust in Him so to not jump into just any course. The course for their lives will be revealed before our eyes by spending time speaking with and watching our children.

This can be an exciting journey. Yes at times it can be frustrating especially when you believe you should go one direction but the Lord is saying "Go this way." Remember that the Lord's ways are the best ways, so knowing this, we can rest in peace. Rest in a certainty that our children will be successful in the Lord's eyes. This is the ultimate goal.

Seek and you will find!

She is Here!! Welcome Ana Karisa!!

Just a quick update to let you know we had the baby!!  Yay!!!! :D Here name:  Ana Karisa (pronounced  A-nah  Ka-ree-sah  ) Born: January 30 at 9:15 PM Weight:  7'2 oz  19 inches  Beautiful little girl.   Here are some pictures and when I start feeling normal and not so much like a milk cow, then I will post the details of what took place on Delivery day. ( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

A day away....

Life had become so overwhelming for me when Donnie was away with the older two  children.  It seemed we hardly ever had time to really talk about life anymore I started to feel disconnected with him I really don't like this feeling I am not a surface type of person and when "problems" in life begin to brew..... look out!!   I will do what it takes to make things better.... Even if we have to make an emergency get-a-way... I wanted just one day... one whole day alone with him. Sooooo.... Donnie asked his sweet mom to watch the children for us while we took a little drive on over to the beach... ahhhhhh I think the beach has become one of my favorite places to be.... There is something that takes place deep in my heart when I come face to face with the massive ocean and the waves.... The breeze blows and there I find some comfort and peace... We had such a great time reflecting and revamping some of our vision, plans, and goals for  the

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
