Currently, I am...

reading aloud a biography on Thomas Edison

pondering my vision for slow with Slow Lane

Surrendering my will to Father's by paring down curriculum choices for next year

Listening for whispers from the Holy Spirit

praying for an Obedient heart

desiring to have a heart of Worship

pursuing the idea of a morning basket in my homeschool

taking new supplements for iron deficiency anemia

praising God for more pieces to the puzzle

waiting for a phone consult to discuss test results

culturing a batch of kefir

drinking raw egg smoothies

craving pineapple

wrapping Eliana's hair in rag curlers - a birthday eve tradition

celebrating Eliana's 10th birthday with a trip to the mall to get her ears pierced and a day on the town

loving that she couldn't stop thanking me for such a happy day 

enjoying the time I get to spend with Nathan while in town


  1. Lots of lovely things and pondering in your life.
    Blessings, Dawn

  2. Your blog posts uplift me so much! We started a morning basket this school year and it has been a wonderful change. We read/discuss for about 1 to 1.5 hours each morning and it sets the day right. My almost ten year old (this week!) says that it is his favorite part of school each day.

  3. Aw, thank you! ♥

    Natalie, I'm so happy to hear you love morning basket. I've loved the idea of it, but I wasn't sure if I would be consistent with it. I'm ready for a change though, and excited to try. :)

  4. So many lovely thoughts and experiences all wrapped up in one <3 I love that Eliana was so happy with her special day :) A rag curler tradition - what fun!

  5. I would love to see how you implement the basket (if you choose to do it, and share it here). I love the idea too, but I haven't been able to get it down. I was thinking today that maybe I need to make it a morning bag instead. Happy Birthday to your daughter!

  6. Hi! I just found you, and subscribed immediately!! Thank you for posting so much and sharing for free!! What a blessing :0) We are just starting a project on Australia, and I didn't know where to start! God bless you and yours :0)

  7. Thank you, Tara. ♥

    Desiree, I love the idea of using a bag! I've been listening to the Your Morning Basket podcast, and they most often refer to it as simply Morning Time - I like that, except that for us, it might sometimes be afternoon time. :) I'll be sure to share how it goes!

    Hi Joanie! Nice to meet you! ♥
