We Belong to Jesus

I keep hearing that song over and over in my head, it goes, Come, let us sing a song. A song declaring that we belong to Jesus. He's all we need. I'm just thinking about how thankful Tim and I are everyday. We have been so busy, I almost don't even recognize the ways --big and small-- that god has been Provo ding for us every step of the way. Here we are, two months away from sitting at our table, in our kitchen, in our new house, in Bemidji, in Full Time Ministry. What? Yes, only two months away from leaving Colorado, leaving our friends and brothers here, leaving our jobs, leaving the mountains, leaving this dirty and industrial city, leaving traffic jams and chaos. It is bittersweet... We have so much to look forward to, but a lot that we'll look back on. Anyway, I have been thinking about how it is hard to remember that we are in the Lords hands. He cares so much for us, and knows our thoughts, he knows our hearts desires. With a lot of logistics, I often catch myself pretending that I am in charge of what will happen. Of our son, or our fundraising, or our jobs, or our home... And just when I am so far gone in details and planning, and whatever else goes with that, I am reminded that I am the daughter of the Lord. I am just the feet to walk in the light of God. I am only a part of God's big big plan. This life we live is for our King. We live to bring others to life for Christ.

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…
