Prayer Calendar for Husbands








Often husbands are the sole support of homeschool.  I know this is true for many of my friends and our house too.  

The Bible says to pray without ceasing...except sometimes, okay maybe more than I want to admit, I forget.  Maybe you too?

So how about an a calendar you post up somewhere, like maybe the kitchen, and pray for your husband every time you are in the kitchen?

  Amazing things can happen when we pray

Passover | Pesach




Today is what Christians around the world call "Good Friday".  But the reality is today is Passover (Pesach) and for Christians that translates to the Last Supper.  Today was when the Messiah sat down with his disciples (talmidim) and celebrated the Pesach (Passover) with them.  It's quite sad that Christians don't celebrate this feast ordained by God because if we did, most Christians would see that the whole Passover meal foreshadows Yeshua (Jesus), which is what God had intended.  As a matter of fact...ALL of God's ordained festivals have either been fulfilled by the Messiah OR are waiting to be fulfilled when the Messiah returns!  

As Christians, we don't know why he was called the "Lamb Of God" or that every year during Passover a lamb shank is on the sedar plate during the Passover dinner....guess what that represents?!?!

Watch this amazing video and praise our amazing Lamb Of God!


When Jesus had finished saying all these things, he said to his disciples, “As you know, the Passover is two days away—and the Son of Man will be handed over to be crucified.”                          Mattityahu (Matthew) 26:1-2 NIV

 The next day, Yochanan (John) saw Yeshua (Jesus) coming toward him and said, “Look! God’s lamb! The one who is taking away the sin of the world!
                  Yochanan (John) 29:1  Complete Jewish Bible (CJB)

Ressurection Day | Easter Free Unit Study



If you're looking for a FREE unit study I've got you covered!  I already posted my KONOS one but if you don't have KONOS then here's this wonderful free unit from The Teaching Home.  OK, I'll admit that I'm a little nostalgic about this because The Teaching Home use to be a magazine that I use to get...back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth...aka in the early 90's.  

He Has Risen!






 Terror-stricken, they bowed down with their faces to the ground. The two men said to them, “Why are you looking for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has been raised. Remember how he told you while he was still in the Galil,  The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men and be executed on a stake as a criminal, but on the third day be raised again’?”  Then they remembered his words;
Luke 24:5-8 CJB

Nature Study and Science - The Easy Way!


Need to get some nature study in but...well...you don't know where to start?  Try The Kids' Nature Book!


This has been our "go-to" when nothing exciting is happening outdoors.  Why would this be the go to?  Because there is something to do EVERY DAY of the year.  Is it January 12th  and you don't know what to do?  The book has you covered.  November 30th?...Got It.  Save your sanity and check this out of your library...you'll see what I mean.

Pair this with The Storybook Of Science for your older children and you've got your science covered!

What a fun and educational book Nature Anatomy is!  The kids will love to just peruse it and maybe even copy the illustrations :)  

And I'd be remiss if I didn't suggest that YOU have yourself covered by getting the classic Handbook of Nature Study.  This has tons of info for you to read (not to the kids) so you sound like a naturalist without trying!  Simply find what your kids asked you about and let them know.  Of course don't bore them by reading directly out of it...unless they are wanting you to, or they are in Jr. High and up.

Minimalist Homeschool Expo!




Dr. Art Robinson was a minimalist homeschooler before it was a "thing" 25 years ago.  Watch this interesting video on homeschooling with his curriculum and see how easy and freeing it really can be!  

ALL six of his kids went into science majors (Chemistry, Vets etc) and ALL of them got PHds early.  Amazing family!


Dr. Art Robinson Explains the Robinson Curriculum



You can get the Robinson Curriculum here.  It's available online now so you can have either a PC or a Mac. ;)
