Devotional:  The Fundamentals of Basketball and Life

Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith (Hebrews 12:2) As residents of North Carolina for the last three decades, we’ve enjoyed some of the best college basketball in the country. Whether you wear the Carolina blue of the UNC Tar Heels or the darker blue of their rivals, the Duke Blue Devils, in any given year the odds are that one of these teams will be in the Final Four. Since 1990 a North Carolina school has played in the men’s NCAA championship game thirteen out of twenty-eight seasons, winning the whole thing...

5 Tips to Get Your Homeschool Organized with Kristi Clover

The Battle for Homeschool Organization: My Top Five Tips to Help You Get Organized!   I remember when I first started to homeschool. I felt buried by the amount of “stuff” that came with our decision to homeschool. Papers, books, multi-part curriculum, supplies, & more! There was stuff everywhere. Overwhelmed didn’t even begin to describe the emotions that were stirring around in my mind. I knew I needed help. However, back when I started homeschooling, the only thing you found when you searched for...

Devotional: Got Wisdom?

Devotional: Got Wisdom?

If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him. (James 1:5) You probably recall the “Got Milk?” advertisements. Sponsored by the dairy industry, these clever commercials and print ads usually featured a smiling face wearing a classic milk mustache. The idea behind the “Got Milk?” campaign was to push milk to the top of the list of America’s preferred beverages. When celebrities began appearing in the ads, the milk mustache became a status symbol of sorts, implying that...

“I Can’t Homeschool Anymore!”

“I Can’t Homeschool Anymore!”

“I can’t homeschool anymore. I’m just too overwhelmed by it all. I quit,” she said. My heart went out to this young homeschool mom as we talked in a quiet corner of the bustling homeschool convention center in Portland, Oregon. “You homeschooled for twenty-one years. Did you ever want to quit?” she asked. “Why didn’t you? Why in the world are you still speaking on homeschooling now that your kids are grown?” I prayed fervently, silently, and quickly for the Lord to give me powerful words of encouragement for this battle-worn mother. “Of...

Devotional:  Grace, Grace, Marvelous Grace

And David said, “Is there still anyone left of the house of Saul, that I may show him kindness for Jonathan’s sake?” (2 Samuel 9:1) After King Saul and his son Jonathan were killed in battle, David was poised to become the new ruler of Israel. In those days, it was common for someone in David’s position to kill any surviving heirs of the previous monarch in order to avoid or quickly end any potential power struggle. Mephibosheth was Jonathan’s young son. He was only five years old when his nurse received news of Saul and Jonathan’s fate. As...

Devotional: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Devotional: Fearfully and Wonderfully Made

Fearfully and Wonderfully Made I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Psalm 139:14) In a well-known passage from Psalm 139, David expresses his utmost admiration for the complexity of the human body. He reflects on the fact that God formed our bodies, intricately weaving frame and flesh into a beautiful form that functions with precision, much of it automatically. Your heavenly Father knows you intimately, inside and out (Psalm 139:1). He has determined the number of your days (Job 14:5) and prepared you for Hi purposes...

Tips for Creating a Summer Scrapbook

Tips for Creating a Summer Scrapbook

Creating a summer scrapbook is so easy and will serve more than one purpose for your family. For my family, the wonders of childhood have now faded, giving way to the sensible pursuits of teens becoming adults, complete with driver’s licenses, summer jobs, and the busyness of preparing for college. Summers are now marked by a sense of adventure quite different from when our family was young.  One can never get back those early summertime experiences that fostered so much learning, joy, and excitement in the hearts of our young, eager...

Is This Your Favorite Family Activity To Do On Summer Vacation Too?

Twenty-six years ago this summer, Rachael and I made our first family beach trip to Charleston, South Carolina. We had one infant son at the time, and we had no inkling of the long-standing family tradition we were starting. Since then, we’ve skipped the beach just once when we spent our vacation money to attend the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. We now have over two decades of family beach trips under our belt. Every year we would venture to a sandy locale in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, or Texas. Each of...
