Reading Stack This Week

Hey y'all!! Hope that your week has been totally awesome. Mine, well it wasn't bad but it wasn't awesome either. With still having Bronchitis (6 weeks and counting) and being on antibiotics, my system just hasn't been working at the pace I need it to. I'm a go getter and when i'm not well it bothers me that my strength is not there. My family also had a death this week, my great aunt passed away. So that kinda bummed me out too, on top of being sick. Although all of this is going on we still find time to read in this homeschool home.  As I have said before, reading is key.  I always have time to read, no matter what is going on.  So let me share with you what my son has had he pleasure of hearing this week.

From author Ryan T. Higgins  " Mother Bruce"  It was a really cute little book. The bear loves food but get a surprise when he cooks some eggs.

Author Eric Carle " Slowly, slowly, slowly" said the sloth."  This book is cute just beca…

Homeschool LIFE!

So a few days ago was exciting for my little guy. We got to go to homeschool group. We love our homeschool group days. We get to see our friends and mommy gets a little mommy time with other moms.  We did a Easter Party.  My group is a Christian based group. So first things first.  We put Christ first. One of the moms did devotional with the kids. She read the Easter story from Luke 24 to the kids. After reading the story to them she asked questions to see if they could answer.  This is really to see who was paying attention. HAHA. Then we gave them a coloring page of Jesus that said He is Risen. After that we did egg coloring and egg hunting. Plus during the mist of it all we fit in lunch together.  Our homeschool group is like one big family, or at least that is what I consider them. OUR FAMILY.  I couldn't imagine homeschooling and not having a group to lean on when I needed them. So here is a few pictures for our Easter Party. Hope that you enjoy.

What does the bible say :: Issue 11

So this week I have went over a few verses in Haggai. There in the beginning of chapter one a few verses stuck out to me. How many of you have actually sat down and read Haggai?  One of the shortest books in the bible. It only has two chapters, so it wouldn't be hard for you to sit and read it say in like 15 minutes. But I guarantee not many have.   When I open the bible to read, I don't go in any order. I ask God to show me where He wants me to read from. I have came across some very interesting thing by reading it this way. God always puts right in front of me the things he wants me to see. I have done it since day one of opening a bible and reading its words.
But moving on to my study this week. On to the verses that I am talking about. 
Haggai 1:7-11
This is GOD speaking here to the people by way of the prophet Haggai.
God says, Consider your ways, go up on a mountain, bring down wood and build a house. Now, He is not just talking about any house. He is talking about His house…

What the Bible says:::Issue 10

What do we know about binding?

The bible says it in Proverbs 6. So it got me to thinking. Usually when we bind something we tie it up so that it won't be loosed. Right? I mean if I bind up a broken leg, I do it so that it won't move and that it can heal.  So i want it tight enough not to move around.  
What about binding God's word?
In Proverbs 6:20-21 says My son, keep thy father's commandment, and forsake not the law of thy mother: Bind them continually upon thine heart, and tie them about thy neck.
Proverbs 3:3 says Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
Proverbs 7:3 says Bind them upon thy fingers, write them upon the table of thine heart.
What exactly do you think that the Lord is trying to tell us in the verses. As i read them a thought came to mind about something I have heard my whole life. " Peggy, read your bible, remember the words, because one day someone is going to take that bible away. If…

Reading Stack This Week

So I don't know about y'all but in our homeschool we do a lot of reading. It is a important key in learning. A child being read to helps in lots of areas of growth. For instance, it develops intelligence. We want our kids to be bright, smart, and imaginative.  Imagination is one thing I hope my kid never grows out of.  Reading out loud to your children builds a bond between the parent and child. I started reading to my child way before he was born. He has been able to pronounce words that is sometimes hard to me since he was 2 yrs old. Reading builds there language skills. It helps them to be able to carry a conversation.  Reading out loud to them also helps them learn to read.

So why do I have a large library of children's book and why do I check out many books from the library?  Its so that I can read to my son.  I want him to learn to listen, picture the story from imagining it happening, and help him to tell me a story of his own.

So our book list this week was as foll…

Saying Good-Bye, A Tribute

Its a tough thing.  We all have to go through it. None of us are exempt from it. None of us can escape to somewhere that it doesn't happen. There is no such a place.

The bible says it this way,To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1-22.

Well we have just went though one of those seasons with a dear friends departure. She has finally made it home. One of the saints of old. A elder to the ladies in our church. A Sister in Christ.

We met Mrs. Linda in 2012 when we started going to the church we attend now. She was always kind and welcoming. As time grew we just fell in love with this sweet lady. She was like a mother, grandmother and friend all balled up into one. Never heard her say a harsh word to anyone. Always told everyone she loved them and was praying for them. From our time of meeting until her departure to Heaven, we were friends. My husband and I would go and visit quiet often and minister the word to her when she cou…
