  • When TV Can Be Good for Your Relationships
    by Jessica Cole on July 16, 2019 at 2:00 PM

    We often hear about the ways that screen time causes damage to relationships. I think this can be very true. In fact, the story I am about to tell was partially borne out of my feeling that screen time was doing just that. But I want to tell you about one way that screen time, […]

  • Honoring Our Heritage
    by Rose Focht on June 27, 2019 at 2:30 PM

    I’ve always tried to instill in our children an understanding of and appreciation for our roots, whether it be through stories of our own family tree or stories of our country. I believe that it’s important to honor the memory of those who have gone before us, as well as to learn our lessons from […]

  • Summer-Approved History: 5+ Ways to Teach the American Revolution Through Story
    by Jessica Cole on June 26, 2019 at 9:00 PM

    History was never my best subject in school. To me, it was often a tedious struggle to remember names and dates. But I did still learn a good deal about certain periods in history, and that was mostly thanks to historical fiction. One of my favorite historical subjects turned out to be American Revolution. Granted, […]

  • To Moms Everywhere: Bless You!
    by Sara Jones on June 21, 2019 at 2:00 PM

    One moment many years ago, when my children were small and life was cramped, I sneezed. And no one said, “Bless you.” I was tired that day, just as I was as many other days. I was also lonely; I spent the bulk of my time in the company of four small people who certainly […]

  • I Am a Rebel Homeschool Mom
    by Rachelle Reitz on June 20, 2019 at 2:30 PM

    I never planned to be a homeschool mom. I had nothing against homeschooling, but when my son was born, I really couldn’t fathom the day he would go off to school. Or stay home for school. Or talk. I certainly didn’t anticipate the day he would be driving, or be taller than I am. And […]

  • Our Children’s Greatest Need
    by Jessica Cole on June 19, 2019 at 9:00 PM

    In my last post, I shared some thoughts about how to add Bible study to our children’s school day. As I was finishing up that post, however, I realized I didn’t touch on much of the why. Whether we do it as part of our school day or not, why should we desire to add […]

  • Something is Better than Nothing: Adding Bible Study to Your School Day
    by Jessica Cole on May 29, 2019 at 9:00 PM

    Have you ever heard that old children’s song, “Read your Bible, pray every day, and you’ll grow, grow, grow”? For many of us who grew up in church, this song—and this sentiment—may be nearly as familiar as “Jesus Loves Me.” I frequently heard exhortations from the pulpit for Christians to have daily devotions and for […]
