Old Soul Quotes: Choices

After some prayerful consideration and conversations with my family, I've decided to cut back on blogging (at least temporarily). Though I only post a few times each week, those posts take time that my family needs to invest in their lives, and that I need to invest in freelance work. I hope to continue posting… Continue reading Old Soul Quotes: Choices

Memorize & Meditate: Psalm 46:10-11

Fall is a busy season in my family's life! There's a hurried feeling in the air along with the chill, as we work to complete certain home and garden projects before the cold weather sets in.

Memorize & Meditate: II Timothy 2:15

As we begin a new home-schooling year (with two tenth-graders and a fourth grader!), I wanted to remind myself and my children just why we invest so much time and energy in our classroom each day.
