Parenting Help for Christians (Review)

Okay, so we all have kids who have behavior problems from time to time, right? I mean, no parent is perfect and every child is an individual. Some of us struggle with strong-willed children who are less likely to be obedient. It often comes down to who can hold out the longest. That person should always be the parent, but it becomes exhausting, to say the least. My oldest child is particularly challenging, spunky as some would say (like her mama). I feel like we’ve tried so many ways to appeal to her, and while she has a servant’s heart

Resurrection Day Resources

In our home, we don’t do “Easter” as it were, with eggs and bunnies and those types of things. We focus on Jesus and his sacrifice and what it means for us, giving thanks to the Father!

5 Strategies for Coping With Toxic People – The Negative Nancies, Buttinskies and Sociopathic Susans

We all have one of these types in our lives. The relatives who are naysayers. The friend who picks apart all your decisions. Those who act interested in your plans and goals, only to cast doubt and skepticism. Toxic people is what they are. It’s hard enough being a homeschooler as it is. You try and try to get along with this person and they never change. Maybe you have spoken with them about it and they deny it. Maybe they promise to work on things. Maybe they even apologize but are not truly penitent so they repeat the dirty
