Teaching Little Ones

I started teaching classes again this year at a local homeschool co-op. I have 6 students that range in age from 2-5. They are very cute and so sweet and we have fun learning together.


Here I am with my class (the one little 2 yr. old is missing from this picture).
Our first class' theme was gingerbread.


Photos from our second class: The theme was colors.
The main book was "The Crayon Box That Talked".

Today's tragedy in CT


In light of today's horrible tragedy (the elementary school shooting in CT), while many grieve & others ask questions about better gun control, I think that it is time that we as a country thought about some other factors that I believe have contributed more to the recent violence than gun ownership.
In 1962/63, The Bible & prayer was removed from public schools.
With it began a movement to deny a supreme Creator (the authority to whom we will ultimately answer).
In 1973 we legalized abortion, effectively saying that certain lives were not valuable, do not matter & are less than human. Many push to that it's OK to kill babies in the womb. (Then shouldn't it be OK to kill children in the school?) L
Evolution is taught in public schools and polluting most science books we read, saying we came from nothing & are here by accident, for no purpose.
Lenient criminal sentences & doing away with capital punishment shows wrong-doers that there are no real consequences for their actions. While violent video games have glorified killing with no consequences, as well.
A big theme is that there are no losers, that everyone wins. So when life brings trials and failure, people can't handle it
We have removed the 10 commandments because “they” want separation of church & state.
We have made truth & morals relative to “what's right for me may not be right for you”.  There are no moral absolutes.
As a nation, we can't do & teach all these things and expect a different outcome than what has sadly happened today.
Don’t blame guns- Blame the moral decay of our United States of America. Liberal ideas get pushed down people’s throats, polluting lives, and trying to persuade people that there is no God, and no real reason to live, do good, or glorify our Creator.

America please turn back to God!
The United States of America no longer blesses God, so why should God Bless America!?

This was put together from many thoughts people shared throughout the day.

The word: Courtship

I recently read a very good article (online) about courtship

Here is how it defined Courtship:

Courtship

"Like the word trinity, the term courtship is not found in the Bible, but the idea surely is. In brief, courtship is the process of investigating (i.e., getting to know) a person with marriage in mind. It is the time period for evaluating a suitor’s inward character, values, interests, beliefs, practices and life purpose to ensure that a godly match occurs. 
The term courtship is derived from the words court and ship
Court means a trial of law for evaluating evidence; and...
Ship refers to boundaries (such as in the word township, meaning boundaries of a town). 
So, the term courtship may be used to speak of the boundaries, or proper approach, for evaluating evidence of a person’s true character, just as in a court of law. We see this investigative process in several scriptural marriages (Isaac and Rebekah – Gen. 24) as well as in various scriptural principles, such as 1 Thessalonians 5:21: Examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good."

When Love Came Down

I listened to this song this morning and think it is beautiful. 

I sometimes think about how it would have been to be Mary. She was a young woman. She loved the Lord and tried to live for Him. Could you imagine having the Lord put you in this special place and use your life this way, to birth and raise the Savior of the World? Wow!
