Old friends

Today we spent the afternoon with some good friends. Jeff and Tiffany moved away last month and stopped in on their way home (Sunrise, Fl). I love to visit and talk with her. Tiff is a true woman of God. She inspires me! We both have obstinate girls (Kaylin and Jaden) that need direction and we need support. Today Tiff said something, which was very good advice. "God is always molding my character and it's not the most comfortable for me. He does what He needs to do to mold me more like Him." That is her direction with Jaden. It may not always be the easiest way but what is best for Jaden. That is my new outlook with Kaylin. My focus needs to be on her character and not her short comings. Thankfully God does not focus on my short comings.

Have you ever read the book "Shepherding a Childs Heart" by Tedd Tripp?
It has great practical advice for training our kids in ever age group.

Why we choose to homeschool...

Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.
