  1. I have a question. I was a stay home mom for years homeschool my children . Two have finished school still have one more to go. I went back to work for 8 years and it was so hard on me. Because I’m still homeschooling my child and my husband works out of town. So it has been very hard. I want to come back home because I feel that is where I need to be. But I’m so scare because of the bills. I quess what I’m asking is should I just do it and give it to the Lord. I do feel that I need to be at home for my family. Just going back to one’s pay again is very hard. But I know I have to have faith that God will take care of this.

  2. My question is How do I raise my child in the christian faith other than taking my 2 year old to church? I didn’t grow up in the christian faith so Im having a hard time. I pray with my son before my son goes to bed for naps and bed time. Also, I read godly books. I heard to also read scriptures helps to him.. But where do I start?? Do I just read it out loud or do I break the verses up? I want to lead a christian life for him.. I feel like I stress more about it then I actually do it.. Thanks in advance!

    • Tabytha, you are doing exactly what you need to do! Keep telling him the stories of Jesus and talk with him about who Jesus is to you. How has Jesus changed you, how he helps you, and how much Jesus loves you both! An adult Bible is great but you could pick up a children’s bible if you wanted to. Just pick out a book and begin reading, telling a story at a time and talking about it asking him what he learned or retelling you the story with you helping to remind him of important parts. Trust Jesus to teach you as you read your Bible and teach your son.

The Higher Calling of Motherhood

I recently attended a Veteran’s Day programs for both of my children. Such different experiences. Eldest played in her school’s band, smiling with her friends and clapping for each portion of the program. Rachel, my daughter with autism, stood with her class and tried to keep up, but being nonverbal and noise sensitive, her performance Continue »

Be Still

Do you ever find yourself struggling with the litany of to-do’s on your never-ending lists? Do you ever struggle to be still, to take a moment and rest in God’s presence? If you’re human, and especially if you’re a mom, your answer will be, “Yes!” I recently called into a business meeting, but since my Continue »

Motherhood vs. My Personal Goals

Earlier this year, there were a few weeks that presented many schedule challenges. Inclement weather caused cancelled school and activities. The kids were home. The kids were bored. The kids were needy. That meant the mom’s schedule changed, too. Worse, my daughter with autism didn’t understand that icy roads meant we couldn’t go for a Continue »

Pick Your Focus

Have you ever biked on a trail or gone snow-skiing? There’s a rule each novice should learn before her first trip. What you focus on picks your path. If you stare at a big rock, you will hit it. If you focus on the ditch ahead, you will fall into it. To avoid pain, the Continue »

Confronting the Comparison Trap

“She always gets to go first. You never let me…” “He has this new Xbox game. Why won’t you get it for me?” “Everyone else gets to go see that movie; why can’t I?” “He’s always the star and I’m usually on the bench.” Sound familiar? Ever since Adam and Eve, we’ve always wanted what Continue »
