November 15, 2017

Scroll down to enter to win a free copy of Adored 365 Devotions of your own! Really great devotional. It’s targeted for young ladies in their teens, from the look, but I have to admit: this devotional appeals a great deal to this very busy middle aged working mom.

The Star Movie

November 10, 2017

My husband and I are part of a generation where, growing up, holiday cartoons and animated specials were a traditional part of the season. As children, we watched anything that television-land offered up as “holiday” fare. Now, as adults… we have a somewhat different take. Holiday shows and movies are still important to us (and to … Read more

Zoozie LA

November 1, 2017

Last month, I got an email from Zoozie LA asking me to check out their (really amazing) palazzo pants and consider reviewing them. After checking them out on Amazon, I realized this probably wouldn’t work. The designs are really incredible, but that’s the problem. I have a short inseam, and pants are always too long. The palazzo … Read more

Lumpy Cubes is a super-simple and quick to learn game that just might be the ticket for your kids. It comes with a deck of cards. And four sets of cubes. The cubes? They’re not flat.

Patterns of Evidence

August 28, 2017

Patterns of Evidence is a new, intriguing release. Filmmaker Tim Mahoney took over a decade to create this documentary that investigates the Biblical Exodus from a scientific approach. Mahoney’s goal was to take a balanced approach, and leave the audience to decide for themselves the truth about the Biblical account. In our household, we encouage discussions from … Read more

Changes on the horizon.

August 15, 2017

Hm. I don’t think they’re that far (as far as the horizon) away. Speaking of away, I’ve been away. Not physically, but away from here. We had a lot of drama (health issues, work issues – my husband and I have christened 2017 The Year of Many Things, and are quite gleefully aware that we are more than halfway … Read more

And away we go…

August 14, 2017

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my full disclosure here. This. This is why we started homeschooling. I’ve shared before – our family did not begin homeschooling for the same reasons many other families do (although we enjoy those benefits). When we made the decision to homeschool (which isn’t the same as making the decision … Read more

Phonics Museum

August 3, 2017

Phonics Museum is a fun, engaging app designed to introduce children to beginning reading skills while having fun. We don’t currently have a child this age, so I created a child, Rose, to “play” the game. Parents can add multiple children, so each child’s progress is tracked separately. The avatar choice selection is odd – … Read more

Last week, I received this beautiful set of books from Zonderkidz, the Once Upon A Time Storybook Bible and the Once Upon a Time Holy Bible.

Rapier

April 3, 2017

Rapier is a really fun book by Doc Corea. Imagine combining the best parts of space travel with the best aspects of pirate stories. Now, add in an element of honor… and some bad guys with no honor at all. I was delighted recently to read Rapier, a fast-paced, science fiction, swashbuckling novel from R.A. … Read more

Ripley’s BOARD BOOKS…? Believe it or Not!

March 25, 2017

As I’ve posted previously, books from Ripley’s Believe it or Not and Eye-Popping Oddities are very popular in this household. It’s extremely common for me to look up from my coffee in the morning to see the op of someone’s head, bent low over a book, toast in hand. When I ask, “What are you … Read more

I invite you to check out my OnlineBookClub review of Achieve Your Dreams: Why You Don’t and How You Can by Scott Hughes. … Read more

Isaac Newton and Physics for Kids

March 9, 2017

This post contains affiliate links. In my searches for STEM resources, I came across this series of books from Chicago Review Press. The titles are formulaic: a famous scientist from history + content focus + “for kids.” So, this title is Isaac Newton and Physics for Kids. Chicago Review Press actually has quite a few titles … Read more
