Even before I was married I wanted to homeschool my future kids but now that I'm 5 years in with a 2nd, 4th and 5th grader this year and with 2 little ones under foot while I teach, I wonder what in the world I was thinking! It’s super hard! ...but it's the hard stuff that produces great results when you press on.

You see, Jesus isn't sitting at your house in your favorite "quiet time spot" waiting for you to come meet up with him. He's with you everywhere, all the time. Watching, waiting, hoping you'll acknowledge him, talk to him, share your everyday life with him.
Candice has a wonderfully smooth and captivating writing style that keeps you reading till the end. Full of candid stories of heartbreak, hope and healthy doses of comedy, this is a great read!
I truly believe that God’s heart for us is to be free of all fear. I mean it. Every-Single-Fear can be wiped away and we can live our lives in complete freedom and surrender and trust. I know, this sounds too good to be true, but I really believe it because His Word is full of encouragement to do just that!
The goal is to live life at full capacity. Not under and not over. Don't be a race car driver that drives 15 miles below the speed limit or a teacher that reads every book out there but doesn't share what they've learned. Don't be a spectator, get in the game!
See that big drop in my weight chart? That's from this week with my pasta and muffins and brownies and veggie burger and fries. What the what?! I think God was on to something when He started us out as plant eaters in the Garden of Eden.
When the panic of no internet finally passes, you realize that spending face to face time (not facing forward at the tv time) with your loved ones with ZERO distraction is exactly what you needed.
