He Is Risen!

He is Risen Indeed! Happy Easter! Tim and I spent Friday evening at a Tenebrae style Good Friday service at church. It was interesting to experience a new way to see the power of our Lord's mercy, love, and then crucifixion. Today is Easter Sunday... we celebrate the Resurrection of HIM! Read the story yourself: here in scripture (NIV)

After church, we came home with Uncle Jon (and Cousin Cooper), Jordan & Joy to have a dinner of sweet honey glazed ham with scalloped cheesy potatoes (so thick and creamy), and some green bean casserole (although I forgot to buy french fried onions, so we had bread crumbs on top instead). For dessert, we splurged with Jon's Cheescake, Joydan's Confetti Cake, and my Snicker Salad... which all made for a YUMMY and filling afternoon. Of course, we didn't end the day until we'd played two rounds of Farkle (Snarfblast).

Happy Easter, dear family and friends! We would have loved to celebrate with you, too.

On a side note, Timothy found out he'll have to apply this week for his big Elk Hunting trip that he's taking in the fall. We were surprised to find out that he only has two more days before the deadline... Thank You to the guys in our AC (Sunday School) who mentioned this slight detail to Tim!

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Homeschool Plans 2017-2018, First Grade and Pre-K Boys | Homeschooling with Truth, Beauty, Goodness

I would like to share with you our plans for our homeschool this year. Codeman is in First grade, while Jesse is an official Pre-K dude. Anna is a wannabee brother and underfoot helper and Titus. He's three months old. Whooofta. I'd just like to repeat that again. Whooooooooofta.

I have read many books, blogs, and journals on the topic of education. Home education, and to be even more specific, sources regarding Classical Education and Charlotte Mason. I truly enjoy these topics and the sources. I am intrigued, and so I continue reading and have now found myself following and chatting with several homeschool moms online in addition to my local and Colorado friends who homeschool. Tim and I were both homeschooled, although my window of homeschooling was only 4 years, I glean much from my mom and Tim's mom. As some podcasts I've listened to refer to us, we are second-generation homeschoolers :) Haha! Well, it helps give me perspective on quality literature and publisher…
