Why I choose joy
I'm a daughter of the King, grafted in by grace and trying to walk daily in His truth. I live in Denver with my best friend and hubby where I help others as a Nutritional Cleansing Coach, and we minister together at Mountain States Baptist Church. I'm a homeschooling mom of 4, with two more away at college..
I am not so different from you. There are many things that happen in my life everyday that I have no control over. I can't determine what will happen, but I can determine how I will think and I how I will act. I choose to take action when I feel like giving up. I choose to make a difference when it doesn't seem to matter. I choose to love the unlovable. I choose the rough and narrow path, because it strengthens me. I choose to make joy a part of who I am.

People like to ask me about homeschooling. Apparently once you have a homeschooler in college, you are elevated to grand master in the homeschooling world. They’re probably thinking something like, “I see you didn’t destroy your kids, maybe homeschooling isn’t … Continue reading
Kindergarten. It is such a fun time: reading books, teaching new songs, counting every thing (and I mean everything), relearning about God’s creation through the excited eyes of a little one, and so much more. My philosophy for early education … Continue reading
Journaling is a normal part of homeschooling for us. Whenever we go out, the girls jokingly ask (ok, maybe they are more serious than joking but…), “Are we going to have to journal about this?” We journal about trips, slumber … Continue reading
Our homeschool is never exactly the same two years in a row. Kids change, needs change. Add a new little one to the mix and school days become interesting.
Rachel graduated from Far East Academy on June 10, 2012. We were able to host the event at Gina’s, again. It has become a local homeschool tradition and Rachel couldn’t imagine graduation happening any other place. Our great friends (and … Continue reading
