Missions Update from Us | Center for Indian Ministries

Happy July, friends!
We are embarking on a fun adventure with our family this month!  We are driving to Seattle, WA, and camping in Glacier National Park for a couple of days. Please pray for our days of travel to be safe, peaceful, and enjoyable. Pray for our time with my family out there, and for my dad specifically. God know our needs, and hears our prayers. This month, Tim worked with teams, youth through retirement, from Illinois and Pennsylvania to re-do the Men's Dorm roof, bust up and pour new sidewalks, place new gutters, renew the Volleyball court, and many other projects around Mokahum Ministry Center. Praise God!  Warrior Leadership Summit (WLS) is coming up this first week of July, also. Pray for Zane and Dan, the CIM staff who will be in attendance  displaying information about Mokahum! WLS is a five-day leadership conference that's all about equipping and empowering Native young people to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus. Many of the Mokahum students have discovered the school through WLS in the past. As always, please pray for our family to stay the path of God's will for us, that we would seek Him and Glorify Him in all we do. 

Praising God for you, our wonderful team of support!!

Love in the Lord Jesus,
Tim, Amy, Cody & Jesse Kastenbauer

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…
