Weekly Wrap, Encouragement, Snapshots, It's been Busy Fun!

It's been a busy fun week! So I didn't have time to do a mid-week link-up, however that is OK in my book, life isn't lived reading and writing all the time! 😏

This kids are having some extra fun this week, we had a field trip Thursday with friends to Discovery Park to see the DaVinci exhibit, a must see!! Today is mama Bible study (and the kids enjoy it too, time to meetup with some of their friends and play), whoohoo!! Tomorrow, is karate camp and Sunday the kids have a fun event at church they are planning to attend!

We did complete another week of school, which included finishing reading aloud Little House In The Big Woods and Twenty-one Balloons. My husband said the other day that I need my own substitute teacher sometimes. Haha, I laughed, but yes some days that is true. This path isn't always easy (it's not meant to be), but it is worth it. All the planning, reading, math problems, and learning together can wear a brain out, but I love learning together with them. I love learning all the things I missed, the schools didn't teach or that we didn't get to spend more time talking about. I hear many of you out there complaining about the schools, but there is a choice, there is school choice. So be sure to explore all options, take time to pray about it and whatever you decide be committed to it, be involved. Our children need us! Oh and no it doesn't take patience, because I don't have it! 😉

I want to share with you a couple great books that recently released:
So if you are looking for a Valentine gift for the books lovers, this is great one! Some of my favorite Christian authors have come together and shared encouraging marriage stories from their lives. Stories that celebrate the heart of marriage
If you are looking for a Lent Study, join me, there are a few online groups and Sacred Holidays is full of encouraging truth. The study is about the final days of Jesus. With variety each week including: Bible study, sabbath, prayer, and justice days. There is women's studies, and also correlating men and family studies. 10% of every purchase Sacred Holidays uses to provides studies to women in prison!

I have been pondering on some things I have been reading this week and from two video's I watched from the IF Gathering. If you have time, and I would recommend finding some time, watch these two speakers, so much, sooo good! My heart, my soul!! Wow, just wow, watch these two messages, powerful, convicting, good, (Jennie Allen)
