“I Can’t Homeschool Anymore!”

Posted by on Jul 24, 2017 in Christian Parenting, Homeschool Encouragement, Newsletter Week 8, Slider | 0 comments

“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

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?

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...

Devotional: Old Sin Nature

Devotional: Old Sin Nature

So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. (Romans 7:17) In chapter seven of Paul’s letter to the Romans, he discusses and explains an age-old issue: The problem of sin. Have you ever found yourself in Paul’s sandals? You know, those days when you feel prepared to take on the world, to resist temptation, but fail miserably in the heat of the moment and sin anyway? Perhaps you immediately resolve to do better next time. Maybe guilt fills your soul and you cry out to God, “What is wrong with me?” Are you really a bad...

How to Plan a Summer Service Project Idea

How to Plan a Summer Service Project Idea

“What I Did On My Summer Vacation.” As cliché as that sounds, I distinctly remember each September (back in the days when school started after Labor Day) writing an account of the most memorable events from the previous June through August. I typically discussed the family vacation, afternoons spent at the pool, and evenings playing bike tag with what seemed like an entire subdivision of screaming children on wheels. One summer, my best friend, her four sisters, and I organized a backyard carnival to raise money for a summer service project...

Building Summer Memories

Building Summer Memories

Ah, the summer memories from my childhood! I  don’t ever remember ever wearing shoes during the summer months. I remember cool, foggy mornings with early birds heralding the dawn of a new day. I remember sleeping in, and I mean late. Nowadays that means 7:30 or 8 o’clock, but during my childhood it meant pushing noon. I remember the critters of summer—frogs, horny toads, crawdads, locusts, butterflies, dragonflies, bumblebees, and ladybugs. Of course, there were also the pests—wasps, mosquitoes, and flies—but they were worth enduring...

Devotional: The Glory of God Leads Us to Worship

Devotional: The Glory of God Leads Us to Worship

When Solomon had finished praying . . . the glory of the LORD filled the temple . . . and they worshiped and gave thanks to the LORD. (2 Chronicles 7:1-3) The ministry of the Holy Spirit is to glorify the Son of God (John 16:14). Jesus deserves that glory, and indeed, at the final meal with His disciples, Jesus prayed, “Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you” (John 17:1). But what does this glory look like? In the Old Testament, the Hebrew word for glory comes from the same root word for “weighty” or “heavy.” In the New Testament,...
