50 Days | 50 Faces | 50k


Remember when I went to India with my CCU2TheWorld Missions Team in 2008? 
I spent almost a month between two villages which Ryan and Amanda Phillips have given their lives to work for the Lord with.  We shared our physical labor and our hearts through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In Rataygaoun, we built a footbridge with stone, concrete and bamboo. In Daragaoun, we helped out at the Swasti-Kendra (hospital/clinic) and worked on finishing up some new school buildings. Ryan and Amanda (who graduated from CCU a few years before I went there) lived in Daragaoun at the time. Now, Ryan is very involved in the Dayasagar Project. 

Well, I want to share something from Ryan:
"Tomorrow marks the beginning of ECTA's 50/50/50 campaign. For the next 50 days I'm in India, I will share a photo of an individual directly supported, trained or equipped by the Dayasagar Project. You will see 50 faces. You will read a short description of 50 lives who are reaching out to improve the health their communities. ECTA invests in those people who say, "...and let it begin with me!" 50 Days and 50 Faces to raise the $50,000 dollars needed to empower these stories and so many others for the next year."

Happy Birthday, baby boy! | Titus is one

Last year, just after midnight on the morning of Mother's day, this little tyke was born to us! He was a mere 7 pound, 10 ounce baby with fuzzy hair, puffy eyes, and just a perfectly strong boy. He has elfin charm paired with tender kisses. The strawberry blonde fuzz continues to grow up and out, a lighter shade today. We most often find him wanting (whining) to be held, or seeking mischief. He already wants to do what C, J, and A are into... and it causes him many tumbles and tears when he can't keep up or isn't allowed to participate.

We are celebrating this mini man today, on his first birthday! Happy Birthday Titus Andrew!
















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…

Happy New Year 2018! | Family Life, Health, and Commitments.

New Year, New Energy
The sun stays up a few moments more every day now. The cold, hard and dark of late Autumn and into winter is always a challenge for me. It's like they're calling out to me: "you're tired," "you're weary" and they howl threats to take away my joy. As I see the days growing longer again, I get a rejuvenation as I get to see the turn of the calendar, too. The howls seem farther behind now. They're not creeping around my doors anymore. Winter is in a frosty, forward thrust here in Minnesota, and as I watch the sun rise up over the trees, witness the special still and clear mornings of a hoar frost, or see a bright halo around the sun... these each show me it is still cold. But, my spirits are brighter.

Ordering my priorities. Saying No, gives me more Yes time.   When we finished our ministry serving as Missionaries with Oak Hills Center for Indian Ministries after August, our commitments were able to level out to a seasonable p…
