Guest Post, Find Me Here

I have been given the opportunity to guest post on some other blogs the past few days.

This week you will find me at Gricefully Homeschooling. In the past Jen has written a series called Answers from Another Homeschool Mom.  Jen decided to re-start the series and ask questions to moms who have been homeschooling for over 10  years. Yes, I qualify. This year marks the end of 13 years of homeschooling. [Read more…]

Forget the Niche, Embrace the Layers

Forget the Niche

So Long to “Niche”

First, I was blessed by the response to “Finding My Niche”

Ok a little confession…I usually want to run when someone comes looking for me to sign up for a meal. Not that I don’t want to serve but because I know the dinner evening hour is my busiest time of day. Not only am I getting dinner ready for my own family, but our nights our fairly busy with activities and teens working; add to that we live about 20 to 30 minutes away from our friends and church family. So trying to orchestrate getting the meal delivered usually puts me over the edge. [Read more…]
