From His Word

Joshua 24:15
"If it is disagreeable in your sight to serve the LORD, choose for yourselves today whom you will serve: whether the gods which your fathers served which were beyond the River, or the gods of the Amorites in whose land you are living; but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD."

Prayer and Praise

  • God's Perfect Provision
  • Allow us to teach our children His ways
  • His pefect plan for children (brothers & sisters?)

Snow/Ice Sculptures

Yea for snow/ice sculptures again this year....

These yearly free events are super. SO fun to see kids react to them with 'awe'!

and hot chocolate tastes so good after a night in the cold!

It helps me to know that lots of you view these posts on hand-held devices that you can turn, so you can view these photos upright! Hahaha! Still can't figure out how to get them to turn and post right!

We had two sweet JESUS sisters head on home to their eternal destinations this week: Great Grandma Sue Pierson, and Margaret Tanner. A glorified body was just the thing both of them were so ready for! Praising God for their home-going. "Absent from their bodies, present with the Lord."



School is Hard

by Rachel

Yes, this post is going to contain a bit of confessing....

Some days 'I don't wanna'.

I don't wanna' school children.

I don't wanna' figure out how to teach something.

I don't wanna be patient with students...

But ya know what....Doing 'hard' things is a choice.

Sure, I'd rather paint with the 'littles' all day instead of tackle the math class waiting in the other room....but I'm gonna' breath, I'm gonna take one day at a time, shoot, one moment at a time....and get on in there to teach math.

It's worth it. The Biblical world view, the character building, the kindness and communication skills....home schooling is hard. But for me, right now, SO.WORTH.IT.

P.S. If you feel lead in any way, shape or form, to come help us.....feel free to do that!! Hahahaha! I'd take a Math teacher in a heartbeat!!

Marand making 'smores' in the oven for dessert helps hard end hard days....

He Rocks.

Thanks for praying for me....I pray for you all, as God brings you to mind....

and if, for some reason you can't find me come math class time....

I may, or may not be out in the snow fort.....eating a gianormous ice-cicle!!

Please don't call me, worried I'm about the 'throw in the towel' - It's really not that bad....I'm doing fine...but seriously, if you'd like to teach math......
