Women of God can never be like women of the world. The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity. ~ Margaret D. Nadald

Our Father also gifted us with the nature to nurture, keen sensitivity to the Spirit, selflessness, discernment, and heroic faith. No wonder our Father placed us at the heart of the family and thus at the center of the plan of salvation. We are the Lord's secret weapon. ~ Sheri Dew

Putting New Ideas to Work....

I LOVE to spend time checking out other people's blogs... I always find some really fun stuff! Recently I was catching up with my friend Heather's Homeschooling Blog and found a scheduling idea that I realized would work great for us! We basically had this same thing going except ours was written out like a to do list that we did in whatever order, but this one is a lot more fun! Heather even sent me her document with all the pictures she used for subjects, so all I had to do was copy out a few more of each thing and add other little things throughout the day (which is more work then having her do it for me, but what can you do :--D). Anyway, the kids used to enjoy making check marks on our charts, but being able to have a visual of what we'd like to touch on as well as being able to interact by pulling off cards is all the more fun!

There is also a homeschool mom that employed this idea in her home after reading Heather's blog, and she has a file listed of her subject pictures listed in her post. I'm stalking her now... which reminds me.... if you're reading this, hi! I'm Cherie! Your blog is great! :-)

Anyway, I'm excited to put my fun ideas to work! I had fun getting everything together, I have my board... the perfect place to put it, I even had a husband home for a few days that could hang it for me! Well, I took one for the team and we enjoyed Mr. Wonderful being home and making memories with him instead of me bugging him to get the board up, so now I need to learn a new skill and get the drill out myself! Should be interesting! If only I weren't OCD and stressing out about getting it level! Wish me luck!
