Monday’s Message: Does homeschooling and consistentcy mix?

A few things I’ve been learning about the Law of Consistency by John C. Maxwell has been mind blowing. These truths apply to homeschooling as it does to personal life and business.

1. Consistentcy establishes your reputation.
2. Consistentcy is a prerequisite to excellence.
3. Consistentcy provides security to others.
4. Consistentcy reinforces your vision and your value.
5. Consistentcy compounds.

If the focus and priority is homeschooling….then keep doing it and not give up. You will see the fruit of that consistentcy.

The sun does the same thing everything day.
It rises.
Provides us with heat.
Provides us with light.
And a lot of other things we depend on every day from its CONSISTENTCY.

Be like the sun…Rise daily to shine. Shine through your homeschooling.consistent-like-the-rising-sun-1

Funny Fridays: Doggie Disguise


Tuesdays Teach Them This: Wisdom

be wiser than other people if you can but do not tell them so (1).jpg

I betcha that even reading the words, “Teach Them Wisdom” is not computing for you. Don’t feel that this is odd. It is normal.

Clearly, I can remember when I had a discussion with my Uncle when I was 12 years old about wisdom, being smart and knowledge.

My brain was not comprehending what wisdom was.

At all!

Even to this day I understand it but it’s hard to put into words.

But I’ll give it a shot and then explain why this week’s “Teach Them This Tuesday” is all about Wisdom.

Wisdom goes beyond common sense.

Wisdom is not being smart.

Wisdom is not being intelligent.

Wisdom is not being a certain age. Old. (whatever your kids may think that number may be.)

Wisdom is not having understanding….only.

As I understand it…..WISDOM is having common sense, good judgement, recognizing and doing what is right vs. what is wrong, fore-thought on a situation before engaging in it.

Wrap all that up with DISCERNMENT and you have a beautiful display of wisdom.

Have you heard the saying, “You have wisdom beyond your years.”

Because often wisdom accompanies experience. Experience gained over a period of time.

Over a period of years. Usually.

However, it is possible to find wise children. Even at a young age.

Have you ever had a conversation with a wise child that just blew you away with their insights, articulation and fore-thought?

Shall I add…..WISDOM is indeed a rare commodity now adays.

Students (and adults too) live in the moment.

There is….

No fore-thought.

No discernment.

No common sense.

No good judgement.

No wisdom.

Just act or react.

Lord Chesterfield said to his son:

                   “Be wiser than other people if you can; but do not tell them so.”

Scripture teaches us this in Proverbs 4:6-7:

                   “Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch                           over you.  The beginning of wisdom is this: Get wisdom. Though it cost all you                          have, get   understanding.”

My children will tell you that I always ask them,

“Now was that the wise thing to do.”

“Were you using wisdom when you made that decision.”

Even if my 4 year old has no understanding what wisdom is……he is hearing me ask those questions over and over and over again to him.

I challenge you all this week in “Teach Them This Tuesday” to not only work to impart book knowledge in homeschooling.

But WISDOM as well.

Dig into Scripture to learn what WISDOM is.

The beginning of WISDOM is to GET WISDOM.

Pray for it. Seek it. Recognize it. Desire it.

Make that a part of homeschooling.

I dare say that our future world NEEDS wise adults.

And guess what?

We are raising those WISE adults.

If we teach them what WISDOM is, what it looks like and how to operate in it.

Mondays Message: Homeschooling Highway


We live in the time and age where we want things FAST.

Loose weight fast.

Food to cook fast. (microwave..I no longer own one.Here’s to the oven. Ah….fast food. Ha)

Pregnancies fast. (especially when your at pregnancy #3 and beyond)

Service to be fast.

Roadtrips to be fast.

Meetings to be fast.

Conversations to be fast.

And if you’ve been homeschooling for 16 years you are wanting the next 13 years to be FAST! (ok….that one is for me. Ha)

The reminder to you is that although the homeschooling road may be long….reaching our final destination will be worth it.

Like with anything…let’s not wish it to end FAST.

Let’s enjoy the homeschooling highway.

Ride at the assigned speed limit.

180 days at a time….(Under option Three in SC).🙂 Ha.

Thought Provoking Thursday: Pray for SC


Many of you may be aware of the saddening act that occured in Anderson, SC on Wednesday, Sept. 28, 2016.

I will not go into details of it in this blog post as you can find the details all over the news but will instead focus your attention to prayer and God’s faithful Word.

Please pray for the families who are affected in some capacity due to this unfortunate event.

                 Psalms 46:1 

                          “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Monday’s Message:”I’m going to trick you.” “I ‘betcha’ I win.”

Today I remembered something that I use to do all the time with my oldest son to help motivate him to get his school work complete during his elementary years of homeschooling.

I’m not sure if you can identify with this. But I have a couple children who often like to play the “I don’t know game.”


I tell these two children specifically that it isn’t cute to act as if they don’t know when I know they really do know the information in which I am inquiring from them.

My homeschooling time with my five year old started off just like this TODAY. Again.

Now…..he knows EVERY LETTER and EVERY SOUND of each letter since he was FOUR years old!

For whatever reason since I’ve pulled out *for real school books* he wants to act like he don’t know NOTHING!!


Well…..this old homeschooling Mom. Not old in age!! But veteran in homeschooling…..I might clarify.

Showed him a thing or two. Ha!! All of sudden the GENIUS came of out this little ‘faker.’ And I had him spitting out answers left and right as if he was Einstein.

Me: “I’m going to trick you. Just watch. I bet you DON’T. EVEN. KNOW. THIS. NUMBER.”

Benjamin: I bet I do.

Me: Hhmmpph! I bet not. I’m going to trick you. Anddddd….. if you get it wrong I get a point.

( What? A Game!)

He was not about to allow me to win!!

And if he got it wrong…….I’d scream, “I won! I told you. I told you. I tricked you.”

OMGeeee!!! You’d think we were playing for money.

Well…..I eventually raised the stakes after I rememberd that I  HAD ONE piece of dark 70% CoaCoa chocolate in my purse.

I brought that out and that was it!!!

“Einstein” walked over to our kitchen table and had a seat.

I had him now!!! Hahaha <evil laugh>

We played this game through:  Letters and Sounds, Numbers, Cursive Writing, Readiness Skills for Reading, Phonics Chart.

I had so much fun!!!

Well…..I mean, “We” had so much fun.

What appeared to have been starting off as a challenging time of, “Come on Benjamin. You know the sound of “t.”

Turned in to him trying to quickly blurt out the answer before I even asked the question.

And he was right!!!

I won a few times as he was working on cursive.

I split the chocolate into four pieces. He won TWO squares. and I won TWO squares.. too.🙂

That little booger tried to tell me that I only won ONE square.

“Are you kidding kid?”

Next time you are about to school your littles….. try the,

“I betcha I can trick you.” or “I betcha I will win.” Game.

They will not know what came over school time.🙂
