Total Access to Worship

We serve a wonderful God! We are so blessed to be able to do this. He is Great! The Psalmist can sometimes overwhelm us with his expressions of admiration and appreciation of our Lord. The Lord can definitely overwhelm us with His love and greatness. Do you ever feel like you couldn’t possibly worship the Lord in a way that is worthy? “Nothing I could say or write could ever compare to what King David did.” “I’m not wise like King Solomon. How could I ever give anything to the Lord that would be good enough?”

Review of Celebrate the Savior

“Look at this baby book!” I grabbed Laura’s arm and pulled her over to the table with the baby book on display.
Laura, who was gazing at science curriculum, reluctantly allowed herself to be dragged away. We were at the FPEA Homeschool Convention in May, 2008 at the vendors’ hall.
“Look! It’s a baby book for Jesus! Is that not the cutest thing in the whole world?” I cooed, picking it up and flipping through the pages. “Look, it says “Before Jesus was born, he was creating the world!” and this page says, “Here are the gifts baby received…” And, here is a page about His parents, God and Mary.”
By now, Laura was interested. We scanned through the book several times, and, of course, I had to buy the unit study.

The Occult & Halloween

The Teaching Home

This week we are reprinting a great article by Cindy Short and Sue Welch, from The Teaching Home’s wonderful online newsletter.


As our culture is bombarded with the celebration of Halloween, we have an appropriate and compelling opportunity to teach our children what God says about the occult and its dangers.

Total Access Relationships

God made man in his own likeness and image. God made man relational. With these two facts firmly in mind we must realize that God is also relational. He wants to have relationships with each of us. I for one am glad He does. I’ve always enjoyed friendships and companionship. I have especially enjoyed spending time with people who are smarter and more interesting than me. God definitely fits that description.

Total Access to Grace

Isn’t it great to know that God offers us Total Access to His Grace. We moms can only to do so much, but God’s Grace enables us to do exactly what we need to be doing, as long as we will turn to Him.

As a homeschool wife and mother, I am responsible for caring for my home, loving my husband and assisting him when he needs me, and loving and care for the needs of my children, which includes making sure they get a good education.
