Asking for a Little Grace

It’s been hit or miss around here over the last few months, and I want to say thank you to everyone that has stuck around and continued to include Raising Lifelong Learners in their feeds and inboxes. I’ve hinted in several posts that times have been rough since summer: spotty Internet connections, moves, changes in schedule and curriculum, a new baby that is making his/her presence very well known with nausea and terrible fatigue, and a back-to-basics faith and family focus for the upcoming year.

We’re heading over that slump and into the cheerfully optimistic world I tend to spend my time in usually, and with that return, you’ll also find me returning to regular blogging, book-writing, playing & exploring with my kids, cooking up fun kitchen lessons, and hands-on fun and learning. We’re all ready to get on with our lives and return to the joys that homeschooling and family-time bring us.


We’ve been discussing the translation of Titus 2:12 in Trevor’s Easy-to-Read Bible:

[Grace] teaches us not to live against God and not to go along with the bad things the world wants us to. It teaches us to live on earth now in a wise and right way—a way that shows true devotion to God.

Our family is committed to being wise and right. We won’t go down the wrong path because it’s easier or expected. We’ll be just and kind, and love all.


And we’ll do it together.


Please come back next week for a series on how we’re approaching our “back-to-basics” faith and family approach to life and homeschooling. We’ll talk about family mission statements, chores, easy discipline, morning routines, and celebrations.

After that, Raising Lifelong Learners will continue to get better and better. You can look forward to a series and tips for teaching your gifted kids, working with special needs kiddos while taking time for their siblings, and much more. It’s going to be a fabulous fall!

Make sure you don’t miss a thing by subscribing via email or RSS, following us on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook, or Instagram, and {soon!} signing up for our newsletter.

In the meantime, we have a busy weekend ahead of us: Trevor’s having a friend sleep over, Molly’s determined to learn how to write a book {no simple goals for that one!}, Logan’s plan is the same everyday – see how much she can destroy before she’s put down for a nap, and I’ll be enlisting the help of my ever-patient husband in processing 50 pounds {!} of tomatoes into tomato sauce and salsa.

What will you be doing? Leave a comment or click on over and add to the discussion on our Facebook page.

Whatever you choose, I hope your weekend is blessed with family and fun.
