Thankful Hearts Are Happy Hearts


Today's lesson focused upon George Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation: "Whereas, it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor — and, whereas, both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness." He issued the proclamation just a few years after the American Revolutionary War ended. It is interesting to note that after victorious battles during the Revolutionary War he would order his troops to set aside days for giving thanks to God.


Then, during the Civil War, a time of travesty and unrest, President Abraham Lincoln made his Thanksgiving Proclamation: "The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God...No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union."


During another time of tribulation for our country as we were immersed in World War II, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued another Thanksgiving Proclamation: "I, Franklin D. Roosevelt, President of the United States of America, do hereby designate and set aside Thursday, the twentieth day of November, 1941, as a day to be observed in giving thanks to the Heavenly Source of our earthly blessings. We are grateful to the Father of us all for the innumerable daily manifestations of His beneficent mercy in affairs both public and private, for the bounties of the harvest, for opportunities to labor and to serve, and for the continuance of those homely joys and satisfactions which enrich our lives...Let us ask the Divine Blessing on our decision and determination to protect our way of life against the forces of evil and slavery which seek in these days to encompass us. On the day appointed for this purpose, let us reflect at our homes or places of worship on the goodness of God and, in giving thanks, let us pray for a speedy end to strife and the establishment on earth of freedom, brotherhood, and justice for enduring time." Let this be a lesson to each of us: Whether we are in the midst of strife or in seasons of blessings, let us give thanks and praise to our Redeemer, our Savior, our Father from whom all blessings flow!

Wordless Wednesday: Cars


Like most boys, my son loves cars. We have the Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars to prove it. On a drive through a nearby town, we came across Mater from the Cars movie series. Of course, we had to not only stop and get a closer look but also snap a few pictures. I hope you enjoy this week's Wordless Wednesday.

God's Touches of Love

I love how God works! How He gives us His touches of love when we need them most. Last night, Mom had to take me to Hershey's ER due to an issue with my adrenal insufficiency. On our way to the hospital, we stopped at Sheetz. When we went to leave, I realized that the President of our Homeschool Association was parked beside us. She prayed with me before we continued our journey. God is ALWAYS faithful! After a round of IV fluids and an increase in medication, I am home. I start my IV infusions today with my nurse here at home. I'll be having additional testing this week as well. God is with me. I know He is guiding my doctors. He is providing me rest in His capable hands. While I wait and see, He continues to shower me with blessings. We always have something for which we can give Him thanksgiving for He is utterly worthy of our praise!

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God." - Philippians 4:6

Dear Homeschool Momma - A Letter of Encouragement for the Year Ahead


Dear Homeschool Momma,

You are about to embark on a fun yet sometimes chaotic adventure with your child. There will be days when you wonder why you ever thought you could school your own child. Please, don't fret. You are not alone as we've all been there at some point along our journey. No one knows your child better than you, dear momma. You have their best interests at heart and will raise them according to God's purpose. There may be days when tears are shed. On these days, I pray for God's peace to flow through my child and me.  If we're both frustrated, we take a break to play an educational game, go for a walk, or do something fun and not challenging. When we are both in better frames of mind, we start working again on the lesson that was causing us trouble. Just when you begin to question your sanity, your child will do something that will make all of your efforts worth it. So, don't be discouraged. You are doing a good thing. Your children are safe, they are learning, and they are thriving. Keep persevering, momma. God has all of you in his competent hands.


Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I hope that you have enjoyed the Blog Hop and will walk away encouraged. Please stop by the Homeschool Review Crew and read some of the amazing posts written by my fellow crew members.

Homeschooling Outside of the Home

The world is our classroom as life has much to teach those who are willing to learn the lessons offered. Today's topic is Homeschooling Outside of the Home. We'll take a look at Co-ops, Training, Field Trips, Support Groups, and Homeschool Associations.

Co-ops can vary in what they offer. Some meet more for socialization, teaching the arts, and team sports to meet physical education requirements. Other Co-ops hold in-depth classes on all of the major subjects: math, language arts, science, and history. One of the major benefits of belonging to a Co-op is drawing on the knowledge of mommas who have a years of homeschooling under their belts.

As homeschoolers, we have the opportunity to train our children in every area of life. We can send them off into the world with the skills they will need to not merely survive but thrive. We can teach them to care for themselves, their car, their home, and their finances. To help them prepare for their future, we can also provide them shadowing and apprenticeship opportunities that will allow them to learn the education and skills required to perform certain jobs.

Field Trips not only offer fun educational experiences but they also provide numerous hands-on learning opportunities. Children learn best by doing. I still remember the awe in my son's voice when we walked through Independence Hall in Philadelphia. To know that he was standing on the very ground where George Washington and Benjamin Franklin trod made history come alive for him.

Support Groups are a great source for homeschool parents. They provide contact with people who have a similar goal: to educate their children in the best environment. They can provide insight on curriculum they's utilized over the years: what they liked about it, what they didn't like, and what worked best for them. They can provide helpful hints on working through issues such as homeschooling while moving, homeschooling children with chronic illness, homeschooling children with special needs, and more.

Finally, Homeschool Associations are a great source of support, for field trip opportunities, Co-op opportunities, socialization outlet for you and your children, and much more. Homeschool Associations also offer teacher's cards for discounts at local stores and online, discounts for HSLDA, as well as updated information on state laws and regulations.

Planning, Schedules, and Paperwork,Oh My!


Paperwork can be tedious, daunting, and overwhelming! For most people, especially those like me who tend to be scatter-brained, it can be a least favorite task. However, it doesn't have to be difficult. As we enter our ninth year of homeschooling, I have implemented organizational skills to make paperwork easier. I place paperwork I ant to save for our portfolio in an accordion file folder.

For Attendance, Reading/Curriculum/Material List, and Field Trip records, I utilize a simple online spreadsheet where I mark the day with an X for attendance, type the name of the book/audiobook/movie/website address for the List, and  the date and location for Field Trip records. After nine years of homeschooling, I have learned that simple is sufficient.


To learn more about planning and record keeping, please stop by the Homeschool Review Crew and read my featured guest post. While there, please read posts shared by other crew members. Furthermore, I hope you'll come back tomorrow for my post on Outside the Home.

What I Can't Homeschool Without - School Supplies


What can't I homeschool without? I would be lost without my laptop computer. We utilize it daily for lessons and record keeping. We also use the television on a frequent basis to view educational programs whether on video, streaming via the computer or via our Roku, or on our local public broadcasting channel. A CD player comes in handy for playing audiobooks whether at home or on the go in the car. No matter where we are, we can always homeschool. Life is a learning journey and the world is our classroom.

Now, I realize these are all considered big ticket items. However, technology does play a tremendous role in schooling today. Yet, we'd be lost without the traditional school supplies as well. We utilize highlighters to mark text and help my son study. Everyone needs colored pencils and paints for creativity purposes. Furthermore, I've found that doodling and coloring while listening to lessons helps my son keep focused. This was a tactic I utilized in college to help focus my own ADD brain. Since my son has a diagnosis of ADHD, I thought it was worth trying with him as well.

Personally, I would be lost without sticky notes and flags. I utilize them to stay organized, write down key points I want to remember, and mark reading passages in various books. Otherwise, I would be a scattered mess and waste time looking up pages.

What are your favorite school supplies? Please feel free to share in the comments! I'm glad you decided to stop by my blog today. Please stop by the Homeschool Review Crew to learn what other crew members utilize for their school supplies. I hope to see you tomorrow for our Planning and Paperwork posts on our 5 Days of Back to School Blog Hop.

Choices, Choices and More Choices - Picking Curriculum


I remember the first year we homeschooled. I was lost! I didn't have a clue about curriculum. Therefore, I merely purchased the same curriculum my son had used in his Christian School the previous year. This particular curriculum was very rigid. It took my son two hours to write one sentence. At this juncture, he had not been diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome (High-Functioning Autism), ADHD, nor Dyscalculia and Dysgraphia (Learning Disabilities).

As we enter our ninth year of homeschooling, my view has changed and adapted as I have learned alongside my son. Now, our goal is for him to learn and grow at a pace that is comfortable for him. We are more relaxed. Our style has shifted to eclectic. I've learned to harness my son's strengths, to hone his interests and use them to guide us, and to find creative methods to work on the areas in which he struggles and make these tasks less daunting.

There are a myriad of choices when it comes to homeschool curriculum. It can be overwhelming, especially to newcomers. If you are a newcomer, I encourage you to join a homeschool group. These mommas are a wealth of information and experience. Utilize their knowledge. Ask them why they like the curriculum they use and what they don't like about that particular curriculum. Participate in online homeschool groups. Again, ask what these parents use for curriculum, what they like about it, and what they would change about it. Another excellent resource are reviews like those done by the Homeschool Review Crew. Furthermore, most curriculum providers offer samples of their product. View these samples. Work on them with your child and see how it fits with your homeschool style. Finally, attend a curriculum fair and browse the books, workbooks, and other supplies first hand.

As I mentioned earlier, we follow an eclectic style. We use curriculum that tailors to my son's interests and helps his knowledge about the subject grow. We incorporate living books, videos, online programs, texts, workbooks, audiobooks, worksheets, hands-on projects, and field trips. I also utilize free resources online from programs like Easy Peasy, Kids Discover, Ambleside, Lesson Pathways, and Khan Academy. We also utilize dice, card, and board games that help facilitate learning. The key is to foster an environment where learning happens.

Thank you for joining me today. Please come back tomorrow for What I Can't Homeschool Without - School Supplies. Furthermore, you can view other posts about curriculum on the Homeschool Review Crew.

Love Not Hate

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that."  - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

I have a dear friend who lives in Charlottesville, VA and works at UVA. She is the sweetest lady and a true Christian. She and her family shouldn't have to live in fear, especially because her skin is darker than mine. Unfortunately, the world we live in is filled with sin and darkness pervades, there will be hate.

How can we make a difference? One life, one day, one moment at a time. We need to stop being "me" focused and instead embrace humility and be "others" focused. We need to embrace the One, True, Light (Jesus Christ) and Truth because, as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. so astutely proclaimed, only light can drive out the darkness. Furthermore, we need to stop looking at differences in skin color, in abilities, in gender, in socioeconomic status because in reality, we are all people in a hurting, chaotic, messy world trying to swim upstream. Instead, we need to be helping one another and embracing our unique differences. In fact, we must look at the person's heart because it is their heart that truly matters. What is inside a person: their drive to persevere despite struggles, their kindness to all they meet, their love of others, their loyalty to family and friends, and their faith.

Let us strive to live better, to believe, to dream, to hope, to extend grace to one another, and to love without abandon. Join me in praying for God's peace to pervade and His love to overcome!

Litfuse Review: A NameUnknown by Roseanna White


Complex characters readers will instantly fall in love with are the backbone of Roseanna M. White's  book A Name Unknown. Her historical fiction novel, which is set in Britain, weaves an intriguing tale that will have readers turning the pages late into the evening as they yearn to know the book's outcome.

The Book:

The only family Rosemary Gresham knows is a local pub owner and the ragtag group of miscreants she calls siblings. Growing up on the mean streets of Britain, they survived by pickpocketing and squatting. Now, they make their money by scams and thievery. When the familiar man in the bowler hat hires her to complete a job for him, she has no idea just how complicated her life is about to become.

With the threat of a World War looming ever closer, Peter Holstein is plagued by rumors. Is he loyal to England or Germany? Because he has influence over the King of England, people fear his loyalties merely because his last name is German. His self-imposed solitary life and awkward demeanor around others doesn't help bolster other peoples faith in him. When Rosemary knocks on his door posing as a historian, Peter believes she's the key to digging through his family's past and proving his loyalty.

Can Rosemary and Peter find the answers they desperately need as danger rages around them? Can the attraction growing between them survive? Read A Name Unknown by Roseanna M. White to meet these remarkable characters and find out how the story ends!


The Author:

Roseanna M. White writes her books with a Betsy Ross flag and Jane Austen action figure nearby for inspiration. When she isn't writing, she's busy being a homeschool momma to her two children and pretending that her house will clean itself. Roseanna has written over a dozen books ranging from Biblical fiction to American and British romances. Spies, war, and mayhem are frequent themes in her novels. She attended St. John's College and is a member of the ACFW. Roseanna, her husband, and children reside in the majestic mountains of West Virginia.

Homeschool Review Crew Review: Math Essentials


Because my son struggles with grasping math skills, I am always looking for new curriculum that will not only help him master essential skills but will also keep him engaged without pulling out my hair. When I was offered the chance to review No-Nonsense Algebra from Math Essentials, I didn't hesitate to accept.


No-Nonsense Algebra is a complete math curriculum. You receive a comprehensive book and access to online videos. The book starts with an Introduction in which it is explained that the book isn't merely a text book on Algebra but a system of teaching Algebra. The system is the same in each lesson: Introduction and Explanation, Helpful Hints, Examples, Written Exercises, and Review. After the Introduction, the book launches into the lessons. Each lesson, which follows the systematic teaching method, is thorough but succinct with the majority of lessons being two pages in length.


In addition, the book is divided into ten chapters: Necessary Tools for Algebra, Solving Equations, Graphing and Analyzing Linear Equations, Solving and Graphing Inequalities, Systems of Linear Equations and Inequalities, Polynomials, Rational Expressions (Algebraic Fractions), Radical Expressions and Geometry, Quadratic Equations, and Algebra Word Problems. Furthermore, the book also provides a list of important formulas, a list of important symbols, a chart with multiplication tables, a chart with commonly used prime numbers, a chart with squares and square roots, a chart with fraction and decimal equivalents. Finally, the book contains the solutions to all of the exercises. This is a tremendous help to homeschool families.



The second component of No-Nonsense Algebra is the Online Lessons. With the special access code you receive when you purchase the book, you are able to access the Online Lessons. These lessons explain the day's topic in the same systematic teaching method by introducing the topic and providing examples. Students can work on the problems with the lesson as the instructor goes over each example. This allows them to work on problems like those they will work on in the exercise section of the book.


Because my son struggles with math, I have learned the best ways to teach him new skills and to help him retain what he has learned. No-Nonsense Algebra from Math Essentials utilizes short online lessons and book instruction. This is excellent for children like my son who have diagnoses of ADHD and Dyscalculia: a math learning disability. The length of the lessons and book instruction is important as the brevity helps my son stay focused. However, you shouldn't equate this brevity with a lack of thoroughness as each lesson is comprehensive. The repetitive structure of each lesson not only helps keep my son focused but also helps him stay organized which appeals to his desire of "following the rules," which is a result of his diagnosis of Asperger's Syndrome (High-Functioning Autism). In addition, the concise lessons, both online and in the book, help him to not be overwhelmed. This is essential for his success! The provided formulas and charts are also a tremendous help to students, like my son, who have learning disabilities and memory issues.


Math Essentials provides full math curriculum for a wide array of levels, including No-Nonsense Algebra. To learn more about their products, check out their Facebook page.

Homeschool Review Crew Review: Greek 'n' Stuff


When I was asked to review Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek - Level 3 Set from Greek 'n' Stuff, I'll admit that I was excited and nervous at the same time. I was excited because my son and I would be learning koine or common Greek which is the original language of the New Testament that was written so that everyone whether educated or not could read it. I was nervous because I had no training in Greek. Therefore, I'd be learning alongside my child. Eek! Talk about stepping out of my comfort zone.

Then, the materials arrived. We received a Biblical Greek Worktext, a Biblical Greek Worktext Answer Key, and a Pronunciation CD. Because my son is sixteen, we started with Level 3. This was a smart choice as I believe he would have become bored with a younger level. Furthermore, the lessons in Level 3 begin with teaching the Greek Alphabet at a rate of three letters per day and building upon previously learned letters for a period of three weeks. This was a good pace for my son and his amateur momma to learn Biblical Greek together. Due to my son's memory issues related to his diagnoses of Asperger's Syndrome (High-Functioning Autism), ADHD, and Learning Disabilities, I believe a faster pace would have been difficult for him to grasp. The continuous reinforcement of previously learned material also helped him retain the material we were learning.

My son's initial reaction was learning Greek is going to be hard (insert whiney tone here). When he realized that we were learning Biblical Greek, his interest was piqued. Since my son loves learning about God and Jesus, knowing he would be learning the original language of the New Testament appealed to him. Once we started lessons, his confidence began to grow as he realized he could indeed learn Biblical Greek. Not only does he know the Greek alphabet, he can also speak and write not merely Greek words but also short phrases. How exciting is this new skill!


As I mentioned previously, Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! - Level 3 Set comes with a Biblical Greek Worktext for student use. Lesson one starts by teaching students the letters of the Greek Alphabet. It shows students how the letters are written as well as has them practice writing the letters while pronouncing the letters' sounds. Then, the lessons continue to build upon the knowledge previously learned until the student can pronounce, read, and write short phrases or sentences in Biblical Greek. Furthermore, students complete different exercises that reinforce what they have just learned. This repetition helped my son retain and recall the information he learned from one lesson to the next. Exercises include writing activities, matching Greek words and phrases and their meanings, circling the correct answer, filling in the blanks, drawing a picture based upon the Greek word or phrase, and coloring the correct word or phrase. The variety in exercises also helps keep your child engaged in the learning process. I am providing samples of lessons from the Worktext to give you an idea of how the program works. (See below.)


The Level 3 Set also includes a Biblical Worktext Answer Key that makes teaching Greek easy for the teacher. The Answer Key provides a Proposed Schedule for the teacher to follow with their student. As my son can sometimes require extra time to learn new material due to his Learning Disabilities, I found the schedule simple to modify to meet his needs as they arose. In addition to providing all of the correct answers for each exercise, the Answer Key also provides helpful tips for the teacher. For example, the Answer Key suggests that teachers encourage their students to include the accents and breathing marks as they write out the Greek words. These little suggestions and explanation of nouns (such as feminine and masculine) and verbs (mood, tense, and voice as well as singular and plural and person) help the instructor be better informed and more capable of teaching the lessons even without having any prior experience. The pronunciation CD is the third element of the Level 3 Set. It helps both the teacher and student know the proper pronunciation of the words and phrases being taught.


Do you think the product sounds interesting? Wondering how you could use it with younger children? Greek 'n" Stuff also has a Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! - Level 2 Set for those in second grade and higher. You can find reviews for this product at the Homeschool Review Crew.


In addition to their Greek Sets, Greek 'n' Stuff also offers Bible Studies for children. This series includes: I Can Study Jonah & Ruth Alone With God Bible Study (13 week study) KJV and NIV, I Can Study Esther Alone With God Bible Study (13 week study) KJV and NIV, I Can Study I Samuel Alone With God (39 week study) KJV and NIV, and I Can Study Acts Alone With God (52 week study) KJV and NIV. You can read reviews about these products at the Homeschool Review Crew as well.


You can learn more about Hey, Andrew! Teach Me Some Greek! - Level 3 Set and Greek 'n' Stuff on their Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.
