Modest Monday: Rainy Day Blues :)

We got hit down here in Tennessee with an ice storm when the rest of the north got snow.  Snow down here is a 4-letter word. :)  Snow/Ice will shut the whole state down because they just are not used to it at all!  So schools were out all week (hooray for homeschool because we carried on as usual LOL).  Stores were sold out of water, salt, milk, cheese and all the other "emergency" items.  Churches were closed on Sunday until the ice and snow began to melt.  We have not found "OUR" church Read more [...]

Heart to Home Conference: Touring Duck Places :)

I am not exactly sure how many posts I will write about my time at the 2015 Heart to Home Women's Conference.  I have a lot I want to discuss so please bear with me. When Clay shared THIS post, it made an opportunity become a reality.  As you have read or about to read his post, this past year has not been easy.  My dad used to tell me that no home was created for two families.  I believed him especially during a situation where our house was used for more than one family.  However, is Read more [...]

Heirloom Audio Productions {In Freedom’s Cause Single Package-Review}

"To be a true hero, you must be a true Christian."  G.A Henty I have a wonderful resource to share with you!  Heirloom Audio Productions, Audio Drama of In Freedom's Cause Single Package by G.A Henty!  I love radio dramas.  It is honestly nice to just sit back and enjoy something that doesn't require a screen!  I think I learned to enjoy these growing up because we didn't have much television.  We only got one channel so I had to find other areas for entertainment.  My mom had a radio Read more [...]

Great Commission Films {Review of Indoctrination}

I am thrilled to deliver you this review of Indoctrination by Great Commission Films.  My husband and I first watched this DVD several years ago.  At the time, this DVD was buzzing with both acclamation and criticism, but we had to see for ourselves. Before I begin, allow me first to share some background information on our path leading to home school.  Although religious beliefs were part of our decision to home school, it in itself was not the deciding factor.  We were already home schooling Read more [...]

Modest Monday-Valenetine’s Day with a Military Spouse.

Being a military wife isn't always easy.  Sprinkle in a few holidays and sometimes it's downright hard.  I used to get really upset over the holidays because I wanted my husband to really make a big deal out of them.  Forget the extra mile, I wanted him to go an extra 10 miles to show his love and appreciation for me on Military Wife Appreciations Day, Sweetest Day, my birthday, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and especially Valentine's Day.  Valentine's Day is supposed to be the day he reflects Read more [...]

The 5 Love Languages—For Men {Review & Giveaway}

I don't normally share men's topics on here unless my husband posts something.  However, I was asked by Propeller Entertainment to review The 5 Love Languages for Men.  I enjoy blogging for Propeller Entertainment so much that I agreed.  I originally wanted to send this book to Clay to review, but, unfortunately, there wasn't enough time for him to receive it by mail and review. Then I moved to Tennessee and started unpacking books.  Look at this picture: Apparently God was speaking Read more [...]

I would recommend any book by this author. I have Read more [...]

Rasmus and the Vagabond {Review}

Pippi Longstocking was one of my favorite books growing up.  I was so amused by the antics that Pippi could get herself into!  It was also a good clean book that a tween could read without my parents worrying about bad language, adult humor or sexually explicit content.  My parents did not have to worry about their tween reading language or content that contradicted God's Word. I was asked to review another book by the brilliant author of Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren.  Although Read more [...]
