5 Reasons The Kingdom Code Is Perfect for Kid Entrepreneurs

Last summer, as the slime craze swept the nation, it also took over our home. Even my 20 year old daughter was consumed with watching slime videos, and for her birthday, my soon to be 12 year old, requested 6 gallons of glue. Aside from the mess, and a stained table, what was left were nearly 12 pounds of slime, in tiny 4 oz. containers, in various colors, textures and scents. This is how the slime shop began.

The California Homeschool Manual Review

The California Homeschool Manual Review

We’ve homeschooled for a grand total of 12 years, and we’ve tried every style, philosophy and type of homeschooling you can think of. In 2004, we pulled our then 2nd and 3rd graders out of public school. We did it without thinking, and without considering the huge responsibility that came with our choice. It was disastrous. They both went back to public school that fall. Then in 2007 our 7th grader…

2 Books for Your Homeschool and Multicultural Children’s Book Day

It’s time to celebrate Multicultural Children’s Book Day. This year the girls and I got to review two wonderful books, and I can’t wait to share them with you. Teaching our children about different cultures has always been a priority for my husband and myself. I was super excited when I heard about the annual Multicultural Children’s Book Day, and we’re thrilled to be a part of it for the second…

Indescribable: Science, Your Kids, and The Bible

Science has not always been my thing. I learned what was required in school, but was never interested in more, until I recommitted my life to the Lord. Suddenly science became AWESOME. Suddenly I’m obsessed. Genesis 1 gives a detailed account of how all things came to be. We’re given an explanation for the sun, moon stars, animals, people, plants. Everything. And the closer we look at any of those, the…

Why The She Reads Truth Bible, Is The Perfect Study Bible

[I was given this Bible to review for B&H Publishing by FrontGate Media. All opinions are my own, you can see my full disclosure here.] When a close friend of mine first became a believer and received her very first Bible she treated it with such reverence, that it gave the impression it would burst into flames if anyone even laid eyes on it. She carried it in a box,…

Tween and Teen Character Training With Adventures in Odyssey

Tween and Teen Character Training With Adventures in Odyssey

My girls have always loved the Adventures in Odyssey series. We listened to them often when they were younger but as they hit the tween and teen years they slowly started to loose interest. However, I always keep a CD or two with me, in my Sunday school bag. I teach 4 year olds and they still go crazy over the silly adventures. Earlier this month, I finally received a…

All Saints Movie – Faith, Community, Relationships

(Disclosure: As a Featured Contributor of Sony’s ALL SAINTS Influencer Program, I received the value of two movie tickets in exchange for an honest review on my blog.)

You can read that article here. This story…

Is Genesis History?

Is Genesis History?

This week I had the opportunity to preview the “Is Genesis History?” documentary. Is Genesis History? is a compelling documentary that makes a case for the reliability of scripture. If you’ve been following me for any length of time, you know I’m a huge advocate of teaching children apologetics and defending a Biblical worldview. More importantly my goal is to encourage you to teach your children to take the Bible literally.…
