I am a blogging, Jesus-loving, homeschooling mommy, wife, friend, daughter, and sister who is living the journey of life choosing joy in God's Creation around me and within my home. He has surely done great things for us!


It is definitely easy to get caught up in the mundane of the duties of life and motherhood. It is easy to lose sight of the joy of the great commission we have received by being blessed with these children.


Let it not be that we lose this joy, this comfort, and the friendship we have in our Lord and Savior. The grace He gives up is sufficient. Let's rejoice always and encourage each other look at the sweetness of the oranges and beauty on the sunshine!


I have homeschooled since my oldest was in second grade. We use Classical Conversations from the beginning and I am a tutor for Foundations.

I am a wife to Ian and we have fabulous five children. For years I demanded we leave the suburbs to live out in the country. Now that we have three glorious acres in Florida horse country, I am not so sure what I was thinking. The nearest Starbucks is well over 30 minutes away.


My passion is books: reading all the books; rescuing all the old books; sharing all I can about books with you. Squee!


Homeschooling is a refining fire, but His grace is sufficient. I am so glad I have like minded people at my side. Classical Conversations has been a keel on my homeschooling boat, keeping me from being blown over. I have directed, tutored, sold books, and been involved in community for 7 years.

I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
