Biblical perspective

Do you ever like to just chew on a perspective? If you’re in such a mood, then read this article by Rev. Wolfmueller. Then, apply it to advice writers are often given: “Show me, don’t tell me” or “Write from the heart.” Consider parallels and differences.

Homeschooling book lists?

Would I be crazy if I tried to put together homeschooling book lists? I’m thinking about thirty books a year, allowing repeats, for various ages.

Easing Dorothea

You may not catch the cute kid stories I sometimes share on my personal Facebook page, but you’ll get a crossover right now. My four year old Michael is my only boy. He’s finally moving away from being the mischief maker, much to the answer of my prayers. 🙂 And part of that may be his budding friendship with his three-year-old sister Dorothea.
