Wings

We’ve raised chickens for over ten years now, and we’ve had many broody hens, but they would start setting on a clutch of eggs only to abandon it halfway through. Stella is the first to hatch out and care for a small brood of chicks, so it’s the first time I’ve had the treat of watching a …

City Girl, Country Woman ~ Living the Homesteading Dream

I grew up as a city girl, but I always longed for the country. My mother was a city girl who married my father, a country boy, and I’m an equal mix of them both. Childhood Memories My Dad grew up on a farm in northeast Kansas and I was always fascinated when we visited …

The Greatest Gift of All ~ Jesus Christ

The Greatest Gift of All ~ Jesus Christ

As I deck the halls and shop the malls, I think about the true meaning of Christmas. Even though we don’t know exactly when Jesus was born, December 25th is when we celebrate His birth, the greatest gift to mankind. The stores are filled with Santa Claus as the symbol for Christmas, and for many …

Greater Inspiration ~ An Interview with David Hunt

Greaterthemovie

While writing about “I’ll Fly Away’s” role in Greaterthemovie, I wondered if I might also be able to interview David Hunt, its Director and Co-Writer. Since we are both homeschooling families, we had something in common, and that gave me the courage to contact him. Even though Mr. Hunt had a hectic schedule, he made some time for …

“I’ll Fly Away” in Greater Role

I'll Fly Away by Albert Brumley

My husband and I went to see the movie, Greater, not really knowing what to expect. Greater was co-written by a local homeschool father, David Hunt, so I wanted to support the movie because of the homeschool connection. My husband, a University of Arkansas alum, was interested in seeing it for the football story. It ended …

Little Birds Told Me – How God Gave Me a Sign

Little Birds Told Me - a flock of Blue Jays relayed a message

I’ve loved the natural beauty of the Ozarks since my first visit, about 25 years ago. My husband grew up in northwest Arkansas and every time we visited his family, I asked if we could move there, but I guess the time wasn’t right. Soon after our son was born, Scott’s parents bought some land …

Be Still ~ God Provides Spiritual Rest

Be Still ~ God Provides Spiritual Rest

Occasionally we lose electricity for no apparent reason. I’m sure there is one, we just never find out what it is. That happened one day this past May. Power Outage It was a beautiful Spring afternoon and the electricity suddenly went out. These occasions are a stark reminder of how dependent I’ve become on electricity. …

Seek and Ye Shall Find ~ How God Provided

Seek and Ye Shall Find

One of the ladies at the facility where I volunteer was distraught. Her chronological Bible had been lost during her transfer. We own one of those, so I knew exactly what it looked like. I made a mental note, and planned to go to the thrift store to look for one when our Bible study …

A Gentle Breeze

A Gentle Breeze

The term “Godincidence” first entered my vocabulary about twenty years ago, and it has since become a favorite word! Through the years I’ve learned to see God at work in everyday occurrences. It never ceases to amaze me, to become aware of His presence and work in my life! Many Godincidences have become treasured memories. …

Comfort Zones

I could have named my blog something about leaving my comfort zone, because it seems like I’ve been doing a lot of that. In The Birth of Curren Christian Academy, I shared how we began homeschooling. That was a big leap out of my comfort zone. My biggest fear in homeschooling was that I wouldn’t do a …
