Here are some KJV ABC Scripture Memory Cards I made for my daughter. The cards are also available in NKJV. We have long used and loved the ABC Scripture Set from Scripture Memory Fellowship. This summer when my boys were working on the Bible Bee, my little girl wanted flash cards like her brother, so I made these cards (after asking permission) with the verses in the ABC set.
I’ve enjoyed the Nature calendars in the book Natural Science Through the Seasons: 100 Teaching Units by J.A. Partridge. Inspired by the beautiful calendar this talented blogger made, I decided to redo the calendar for January nature calendar.
In an effort to spend more time with my little girl and less on the computer, I hand drew the whole thing so forgive the slightly crooked lines. I’m not going to pretend that mine is half as good as the one the other blogger did for October, but I’m sharing anyway.
I love Sally Clarkson’s writings. She always encourages me to love my family more intentionally, more patiently, more joyfully– and her newest book, The Lifegiving Table was no different.
Even before I was finished reading the introduction, I was reminded that no matter what my parenting views or methods, having a relationship with my children is one of the most important things that I can do. I see that now ever more clearly that most of my children are teens or close to teens.
My daughter loves to be read to. It’s one of her favorite things to do. That’s why I was delighted to come across the new children’s book, Your Magnificent Chooser by John Ortberg.
Your Magnificent Chooser is a beautiful book with delightful illustrations and rhyming text (it reminds me of Dr. Seuss).
Games are such a great way to learn things. That’s why I’m so excited about the printable history games I’ve been working on. I’ve combined some of my interests of teaching and learning along with my kids and I’ve have come up with some great educational file folder games. Now, I’ll admit I didn’t do this all by myself. I’ve had some amazing help from my boys.
My son recently published his first book. The book is about chess. And not just chess in general, but on one single opening. We’ve had some people ask why he chose to write a book on one specific chess opening. I think he explains it really well in his introduction so if you want to know, just check out his introduction. We learned some things along the way that I thought I’d share with you today.
Parenting is hard. I don’t think anyone who as been a parent for any amount of time would disagree. There aren’t always easy answers for the problems we face. Again and again, we need to ask God how to best face the challenges before us. Never is this more true, though, than when one is raising a child who is different.
I’ve been doing some last minute gift shopping since we were on a long trip until late last week. We usually don’t do a whole lot for presents. This year the boys have one game for all of them combined
No amount of correct parenting will produce godly children. We might be able to raise obedient, respectful, well-mannered kids, but only the Spirit of God can change our children’s hearts. That is why prayer is so important.
I’ve always been happy to see my children coloring, especially when they were younger. I figured it was a painless way to achieve better motor skills and improve their handwriting, something that some of my boys really needed work on. There has been evidence that benefits to coloring don’t stop when you grow out of childhood.
