New Book by Dr. Kevin Leman and Contest



Dr. Kevin Leman has a new book, It’s Your Kid, Not A Gerbil. The name gave away the content to me, especially after I saw the picture on the cover.


I have felt guilt at times over not joining the rat race and signing my kids up for every activity available. I’m looking forward to being encouraged by this book.

Tyndale House Publishers is offering a give away on their blog. Prizes include, an iPod touch and book packages.  Good Luck!!

Review: The Grace Card, DVD

Grace Card

Enter below to win your very own copy of GraceCard!  Drawing will be September 3!! *Extended*

Family movie night was great last night. We watched GraceCard, which is the first movie produced by Graceworks Pictures with the help of Calvary Pictures, creator of Fireproof.
The core theme of the movie is forgiveness with some racial tensions interwoven. I cried during parts of the movie and laughed at others. I would highly recommend it to anyone desiring a clean, thought provoking movie.
There are some adult type themes such as selling drugs, drinking, and robbery. These are done very tastefully and are not overpowering or glorified in anyway.
I would also say this is a new production company and the acting, as you might imagine, is not Hollywood status, but it is easy to overlook that and see the greater story. Forgiveness. Just as Christ forgave us, so we must forgive. We MUST! Bitterness will tear us apart, we are the ones who suffer when we choose not to forgive.
GraceCard does a great job of showing just how bitterness, anger, unresolved conflicts, and grief can consume us and eat away at us. But also, how free we can truly be when we choose to let go of it all and simply call on Jesus. He’s the ultimate Healer of all our pain, suffering, sorrow, and infirmities.

School’s In!


We started back to school this week and I must say, things went very well. The schedule I created will need some tweaking but I’ve kept a record of how much time we spent on everything this week and I have some ideas in mind for making our day’s, not only run more smoothly, but hopefully quicker as well.

This is Lucas and Shiloh’s first year of kindergarten.  Shiloh isn’t exactly “old enough” for kindergarten but hey, this is my homeschool and we do things my way around here, hee-hee. Seriously, I don’t know if she’ll be able to do it, but we’re going to try.




School Buddies


Our Morning Board in Action



Josiah hung out with and helped us a lot this week!





I think it’s going to be an amazing year!

Beach Daze

There is just nothing quite like a week at the beach. The lazy days on the beach and quiet nights with a book. Everyone doing their own thing and enjoying it. Some fish. Some swim. Some read. Some walk. All have fun! There are 8 cousins here so that in and of itself is a recipe for a great week. I'm dreading the end of the's never long enough!


             Shark Fishers!!



They fished in the surf and on the peer daily



          Ninja on the beach




There was even time for naps




          My nieces and me

Man I’m going to miss this week when it’s over!
