Working at Mokahum, a quick update

CIM news--Today, Tim's working with a small team on yard clean up at Mokahum. There is a group here from Minneapolis, consisting of a family with 4 kids + one on the way, a couple adults, and some youth kids. Praise God for the service they are providing for CIM!

It smells like a fresh fire because they're burning the giant piles of brush that they are hauling from all parts of Mokahum's campus over to the fire pit... Tim, Corey St. Peter (CIM Staff), and Jonathon McDonald (CIM Staff) and Zane Williams (CIM Director) are all helping out today, working on whatever needs to be done.Chainsaws, Rakes, Wheel Barrows... lots of outdoor activity going on.

LOCAL news--Bemidji has been cleaning up everyday since the big storm that rolled through last week, but there is still so much to see in terms of disaster! Every time we go to town I am amazed at the catastrophe. It was SO devastating to the community to have so many trees down everywhere... it looks like tornadoes came through ALL over the counties in random spots (it wasn't tornadoes. Just crazy 80mph winds).

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…
