Jesus Sees Us Doll and Picture Book

If you are looking for something different for an Easter gift, then look no further!  I present to you the Jesus Sees Us Doll and Picture Book! When I was asked to review this product, I was somewhat skeptical concerning how to use it.  I wondered if I was supposed to use like the Elf on the Shelf or use it as an aid when sharing Bible stories from book.  By the time I received it, I had many ideas flowing through my brain on how to use it.  I immediately tore into the package, read the Read more [...]

Easter Stories-Classic Tales For the Holy Season {Review}

Yesterday Spring officially sprung.  I can not put into words the excitement and joy this brings to my life!  The warm temperatures, the flowers, the return of birds with their sweet music, the beautiful leaves, the grass.  The start of Spring also officially brings us much closer to Easter.  I enjoy taking time during this season to read and reflect on Christ.  Having said that, I was really excited when Propeller Entertainment asked me to review Easter Stories - Classic Tales for the Holy Read more [...]

Modest Monday: What I wore to Teach Them Diligently!!!!

Vini. Vidi. Vici.  The Latin translation of those three words are, "I came. I saw. I conquered."  That's exactly how I feel after finally making it to my first Teach Them Diligently conference.  I have tried to attend this conference for the past three years, but the Army has had different plans.  This year, since we are so close to Nashville and the Army is not interfering, I came and I saw and I finally conquered!  LOL :) Don't mistake this as my first conference.  I have been afforded Read more [...]

Write Through the Bible Junior {Review}

Hello friends! How many of you struggle to find a good writing program for your kids?  I have struggled finding a good program that taught fine motor coordination; another one for basic phonics and letter sounds; one for letter formation and I think you probably understand.  I have used many resources that are good, but I wanted one that combined all the basics together under one program. Trisha Gilkerson, author of Write Through the Bible, was asked to write a version for the younger Read more [...]

No Longer A Slumdog {Review}

When I put my kids to bed at night, I don't think about their warm beds, blankets, pajamas or their bellies full of good food.  I don't think about how incredibly blessed my family is as I am tucking them in and saying our "good nights."  It is no secret that my kids have access to a vast variety of books and educational opportunities in our homeschool.  While I know my family is abundantly blessed, I always give so many thanks to God for the blessings He has provided.  My husband, on the Read more [...]

Visual Learning Systems {TOS Review Crew}

My boys get excited when they hear the word "science."  They enjoy anything related to the subject and are eager to learn.  When the review for Visual Learning Systems came around, stating they were excited is putting it mildly.  We were blessed to have access to review Digital Science Online: Elementary Edition (Grades K-5).  Included in this resource is an option to also use Digital Science Online: Secondary Edition (Grades 6-12).  Technically, we were not supposed Read more [...]

Modest Monday: These are a few of my favorite things…..

Ladies, I apologize that I don't have an outfit to share today.  Can I blame in on the snow and craziness? LOL!  For this week's Modest Monday I decided to do something a bit different. I receive numerous messages asking what products I use and why.  Here they are: 1. NERIUM.  I am not sure if you noticed but over the last year my skin had really changed!  It was starting to look older with more wrinkles, fine lines, larger pores than before, and circles under my eyes!  A friend of mine Read more [...]
