Hello my wonderful friends!
I am excited to announce that I am now a part of the Community Outreach as a Volunteer for National Military Family Association. I am thrilled and honored with this opportunity to work alongside an amazing organization! Here is a brief history of the National Military Family Association (NMFA):
In 1969 Military Wives Association was formed with a group of spouses.
Seven years later it was renamed National Military Wives Association
In 1983 it was Read more [...]
Guess who is swimming into theaters in June 2016? FINDING DORY! My husband and I, er, I mean my youngest, are incredibly excited about the latest release from Disney! According to my youngest son, he "has waited his whole life for this moment!" 😉 The boy fell in love the moment he gazed at Nemo's special fin. He loves Nemo. In fact, his nickname is Nemo because of his adoration for clown fish. Anyone want to guess what his favorite Christmas gift was and still is after all these years? If Read more [...]
This past week in Orlando, Florida, 49 people were massacred at a night club and another 53 people were critically injured. They have called this one of the worst massacres in U.S. History. The left has drawn their line in the sand. The right has drawn their line in the sand. Yet, the lines are blurred. Anyone with an agenda has chimed in to give their opinion. The mainstream arguments have varied from stricter gun laws to arming the patrons of the nightclub; from terrorism by a Read more [...]
I'm sure you know by now what I mean when I say, "The Talk." Oh yes, the dreaded talk that our mothers danced around and our fathers made sound like the sin of all sins. If you're like me, you have a son or daughter that's quickly approaching that age for "The Talk." How will you talk to your kids about sex? My friends Trisha and Luke over at Intoxicated on Life have created a brand new course to help you through the awkwardness and ultimately make it easier on you, the parent.

(My Aunt Macy and Aunt Bonnie)
When I visit some of my friends houses, I love to see a quilt that has been handed down through generations. This small, hand-sewn cloth takes me to my childhood. Handmade quilts have always been a part of my family. My Aunt Macy was a shining example of quilted love. She made each one by hand, paying particular attention to each stitch. Without any formal training, my sweet aunt taught herself through trial and error, eventually perfecting her Read more [...]
If you are looking for a way to make book study easier, look no further! I present to you a review of Give Me Liberty E-Guide from Progeny Press!
My favorite subject in school was and still is history. My husband's favorite subject in school was math, but his second favorite was history. We enjoy studying history and reading history to the kids. I was delighted when given the opportunity to review the PDF study guide version of Give me Liberty! We already own the book Give Me Liberty Read more [...]
Have you heard of Forbrain by Forbrain-Sound for Life LTD? If not, I have an exciting review to share with you!
If you're like me, I asked myself, "What is Forbrain?" This is a device that is used to help assist in auditory processing. It does this by using bone conduction. A fun fact is that our body actually processes sound by seeing and feeling. Normally we hear more than we feel, but with Forbrain, it enables you to feel and hear---making it much easier to process information! Read more [...]
Hi, y'all! For many years, I shared Modest Monday on RaisingSoldiers4Christ. Throughout those many posts, I had a desire to launch my own boutique. However, it never came to fruition because, well, life has a tendency of throwing curve balls, sliders, punts and all the other sports lingo my sports fan of a husband talks about. Somewhere along the way, I realized that it would be better to give the boutique its own home. Well, I'm excited to tell you that no more sports lingo is in Read more [...]
It's difficult to believe, but it has been quite some time since I last reviewed a book! What better way to get back into reviewing books than to start again with The Glass Castle by Trisha White Priebe and Jerry B. Jenkins from Shilo Run Press!
My oldest is on the cusp of his teenage years, so finding good reading material for him is important. When I was looking for a book to review, I had him in mind. He is like his momma and loves to read. Unfortunately, as he gets older, it's Read more [...]
I have another exciting TOS Crew Review to bring you! I present to you MaxScholar Reading Intervention Programs by MaxScholar!
Reading is incredibly important. Without the ability to read, so much the world has to offer around us is forever lost. Unfortunately, learning to read for some kiddos can be a struggle. There is more to reading, however, than merely looking at the words and sounding them out. Once a child is able to read, next comes the master of comprehension. Now they Read more [...]
If you remember a few weeks ago I shared part ONE of my Teaching Them Diligently Series. A few days later I shared part TWO. Today I am happy to be back bringing you the next part--resources!

Carpools, Activities, church....you name it we seem to be involved in it these days.Figuring out where to find good resources to use with our kids, how to even begin to Teach Them Diligently is an overwhelming task. It is important though to not Read more [...]
