    Practical Math for High Schoolers? You betcha!

    I am SO excited to announce that I will be creating a consumer mathematics course for high school students. This course will have a full school year’s worth of real, practical, applicable skill building for the soon-to-be adult. This is the kind of math that adults in the real world use! Some of the topics I will be covering are: practical geometry – the kind that it takes to buy carpet, countertops, fabric for a sewing project, landscaping wood chips for a circular flower garden, etc. different types of insurance different types of investments different types of taxes different types of income assets vs liabilities renting vs buying a house…

    Upcoming trip…

    Hey, everyone, I want everyone to know that I am heading up to Alaska to visit my family up there. I will be gone until the beginning of August. Since there is not very good reception up there, I will not be available as much as usual. I will try to find some wifi to hop on sometime in the middle of the week. If I can, I will post some pictures!

    Part 4: doable resources for peace and sanity

    Procrastination, laziness, anxiety, insecurity, fear, perfectionism, inability to focus, major lack of diligence. I think we all have dealt with at least some of these tendencies at one time or another. I know that I sure have. In fact, some of these weaknesses became a major life pattern – a train track that was leading me to nowhere, or at least nowhere good.

    A new endeavor…

    I just submitted my first podcast to the iTunes store! (I’ll keep everyone updated when it’s available.) I have to admit, I’m kind of nervous about this, but I also know that it’s something God has been asking me to step out and do. My first episode is an introduction to who I am, what I do, and the methods I use in my parenting, teaching, and writing. This first podcast is the beginning of a series, titled “Where the Rubber Meets the Road,” which I will be releasing over the next few weeks. Here are some of the other topics I will be talking about in this series: Being my…

    for the love of coloring

    After a long, busy, and somewhat stressful week, I am looking forward to a couple of old movies on Netflix and my coloring books! Add my fleecy blanket, a hot cup of Irish Breakfast tea… I’m so thankful for relaxing and uplifting weekends. My soul finds rest in God alone. Psalm 62:1

    Scripture Focus

    God’s Word is alive and active, sharper than a two-edged sword. Hebrews 4:12 I would love to be a group of women studying the Word together, praying for each other, and supporting each other as we all walk through this life together. Each month, I will post a new study focus, including Scripture reading, Scripture journaling, study suggestions, and maybe a podcasts of my thoughts about the study. Please join in! If you have something encouraging to share about your journey through the study, leave a comment. On the last day of each month, I will be sending out a newsletter, which will introduce the coming month’s Prayer/Study/Practical Work focus.…
