GPALOVEMATH: Online Math Program (Review}

    Do your kids like math? Mine do, but I’ve discovered recently that they like math even more when they get to do it on the computer.

Growing in His Glory: Weekly Meal Plans

Two weeks after finishing our Whole30, I have introduced a little dairy back into my diet with little success. I find that when I eat a lot it causes tummy aches and other not-so-pleasant digestive issues. So no dairy for me and only a little for the family because most of the girls and my […]

Growing in His Glory: Visual Learning Systems Science Digital Subscription  {Review}

Science is an area in our homeschool that I do not feel very comfortable teaching. I never did well in science in school and therefore never enjoyed the subject.

Growing in His Glory: A Christ-Focused Easter Activity for Kids {Review}

My children love treasure hunts, scavenger hunts, and hiding and finding Easter eggs. We actually keep Easter eggs out to play with year-round for those reasons. As a mom, though, I’ve struggled to connect the fun of hunting Easter eggs with the more solemn celebration of the resurrection of Christ. But when I had the opportunity to review […]

Well, tomorrow is our last day of Whole30. It’s been a challenge for sure. Part of me wants to order a gooey cheesy pizza or eat a bowl of ice cream, but the other part fears how my body will react to the trauma of eating those foods after 30 days without it. Plus, I really […]
