Pray for baby Tangen

"Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
   before you were born I set you apart"
--Jeremiah 1:5

My cousin Anna and her family recently moved to Phoenix, AZ. She was 29 weeks pregnant when she delivered her baby boy this morning. Please pray for their family as they adjust to such a tiny new life in their presence. They are still working on naming him... obviously he came much sooner than anticipated, so they have a list of favorites, but haven't narrowed it down yet :)

Baby Boy was born at 3:04am today, weighing a mere 2 pounds 10 ounces, and measuring 13 inches long. After her water breaking on Monday, and stopping contractions with medication, they stabilized Anna, but when they lessened or took her off of some Magnesium, her labor started back up. She pushed him out with one tiny little push. What a babe! He has oxygen, but is already doing a great job breathing on his own--doesn't need too much help:) He'll be in the NICU for several weeks.

Thank you for praying with us all as Anna recovers and baby gains strength so they both can come home!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, 
coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, 
who does not change like shifting shadows. 
He chose to give us birth through the word of truth, 
that we might be a kind of firstfruits of all he created." 
--James 1:17-18

Thanks Lea! Anna is so grateful for all of our prayers! The Lord has been good in providing strength for the little guy, but he's just so tiny!

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…
