One of One

This weekend I attended the Fourth Grade Video Workshop featuring Bobb Biehl. I was reminded again of what I will call the One of One Principle. Biehl says that we must look at each year in the life of our child as it being one of one. How many times do we say that I...

A Great Gift for Your Children

We laughed, we cried, we prayed, and we asked many questions, but most importantly, with great anticipation, we pondered on our next season of life. We are both finished with our homeschooling journey...

A Recollection of a Two Year Journey

I Thessalonians 5:24 says, “The One Who has called you is faithful and He will do it.” I knew mentoring was something I prayed for; I thought it was something I chose; God knew it was something I needed, but now I see it was something He planned. As a result of our time together,...
