Have you ever wondered about this book?  Nancy Campbell’s book has been reprinted 5 times.  It has become a mainstay in the Quiverfull ideology, however, I’m not sure it’s in print currently. It is not for sale even on her own website.  I got mine used.  The main premise of the book is obvious, that God’s first and primary command is to be fruitful and multiply.  This means to her that any and all prevention or modification of conception...

One of my favorite verses of the Psalms.  The Psalmist reminds us that it is alright to stop our overloaded schedules and take time to meditate on God’s Word.  Indeed, it is necessary!  In Christianity, meditation is not disengaging the mind, but rather focusing the mind on God’s character and what He has told us.  Laying aside distractions is a essential part of growth.  Pulling the weeds that threaten to choke out our joy and peace is necessary.  Vance Havner once said, “If you don’t...

The girls’ quilts are done! My #3 and #4 girls share a room.  Although they are not twins, they were born in the same year.  Last year I decided to do their quilts in tandem so neither one of them would have to wait a whole year until theirs in done.  I did the same pattern but different colors for each girl.  One was pink with light green accents, and the other was dark purple with dark green accents.  It worked out beautifully and with my schedule it took about a year to do.   The pattern is...

Yesterday it seemed like my children were in trouble all day long.  It was a long day.  I wondered if I’m doing this right.   Are my expectations too high?  Have I not expected enough?  I want to believe that my own parenting style is fine because I can see parents who are more permissive than I on the one hand, and on the other hand I can see parents who are more overbearing than I am.  So I must be ok, right?  In light of the so called...

“No big deal.  You’ll do fine! It’s just Kindergarten.”   Everyone tried to reassure me that I had nothing to worry about.  My husband was very encouraging and didn’t even doubt a bit that I’d be able to pull it off.  Yeah right, I thought.  When I was faced with my first time being a homeschooling mom, it was the Kindergarten year for my son.  I had never been a school teacher, and I never desired to be one.  I had never been homeschooled.  I had always been...

The temperature is 54 degrees.   The drizzle and clouds turn my thoughts toward a cozy bowl of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwich.  Ah yes.  This is July in Alaska.  While the rest of the country is sweltering, we are cuddling up with a good book and coffee.  Don’t be jealous.  Of course, the weather also makes me a bit lazy, so I made a semi-homemade tomato soup.  This is a little more than just diluting the condensed Campbell’s...
