Conviction, Confirmation, and Teenagers


When I look back upon my life and think about the different seasons in my life. I come to the conclusion that the teenage years were the hardest. I was part of a blended family where I was trying to find where I fit in, not just in the family but in school as well. I felt pressure to look a certain way, act a certain way, and I would find that I would be criticized for who I was. At that time in my life I had no idea who I was or where I will end up. A lot of changes were occurring in my life during the crucial time in my life. Oh why do the teenage years have to be so hard?

Him or Others?



Every single day in life we have to make decisions. Some decisions are easier to make and some not so easy. Some decisions we make do not affect other people, such as what flavor creamer do you want in your coffee? Or should I eat a sandwich for lunch or have a salad? Then there are some decisions that do affect other people such as changing jobs or making the decision to homeschool your children.

Are We Showing His Love?



Love.
Not the love of a husband and wife or even the love of a child, but the love from our God. Many times we think we are showing His love but can I ask are we truly showing His love? Not the love we think is His love but truly His love.

We Are Worth More



We have all made mistakes sometime in our life. We have learned from our mistakes or we have not. We may continue making the same mistakes. Sometimes we dwell on the mistakes we have made. We sit and wish we did not make certain mistakes in our life. However, in the end, the mistakes we have made or making cause us to be the person we are today.

Kids Learning To Cook

works for me wednesday at we are that family

One area of our homeschool that I am focusing on this year is teaching the blessings to cook. When I moved out of my parent’s house I had no idea how to cook. I was never taught except when I was in home ec in high school. Even then I had no idea what I was doing. If it did not come in a box with directions then we were not eating. I did not truly learn how to cook and I mean learn to cook from scratch until my mid-20’s.

I Am Done



Food.

That is my main addiction.

I am addicted to food.

I love all things food especially the food that is not so good for me. Then there are some foods that I cannot stand like vegetables. I cannot stand vegetables. BLAH! I would rather eat brownies, fettuccine alfredo, pizza, or drink tons of sweet tea from Chick-fil-a. I have no self-control when it comes to these particular items. I feel I have to eat every last bite or drink the entire gallon of tea.

Embrace the Season

 As the weather changes, we begin to see new seasons arriving outside. Fall is not that far around the corner. Next thing you know we will be dawning warm fuzzy socks, comfy sweatshirts, sipping hot chocolate while sitting around the fire pit. We turn off the air conditioner and open windows to allow fresh air to sweep through our homes. We go pumpkin picking. Sip apple cider. Burn candles that smell like fall. We watch as the leaves begin to change and know in due time they will begin to fall to the ground. We begin to embrace the new fall season.
