Interesting Links: February Edition

Teens to Tots ~ Love @ Totally Tots is not for the faint of heart. Our author doesn’t mince words and puts it right out there when it comes to disciplining our little ones. Straight from the Word and written from the heart, it was one of best posts I read this month!

A Few Words About Motherhood @ (In)Courage was such an encouragement and blessing to me and I know it will be to you too. Flawed, Forgiven, Freedom, Enough, Chosen. Let go of that mommy guilt, knowing that He is enough!

The Virtuous Marriage: Frugality @ Simple Marriage had some interesting thoughts including "Frugality keeps you from living under the control of someone else" and the truth that "Frugality and simplicity have lost some respect in our society". Our family is on the right path but with a long way to go 🙂 How about you?

Me Time for Moms: The Dailies @ A High and Noble Calling reminds us that the right "me time" is vital!

Parenting for Fruit by Penny Raine was incredibly timely. Some days I wonder if I am making progress. I’m {mostly} consistent and yet we battle again and again.

The Power of Cash @ The Happy Housewife is completely and utterly true. After reading Total Money Makeover, I tried it and I really function better on a cash system!

7 Habits of Highly Successful Homemakers @ Org Junkie contains a few reminders and a gentle kick in the pants for me. "Without a clear plan, one finds things to do all day long and never feels done." Ouch. That’s my day more than I care to admit!

Things I Say in a Day @ We are THAT Family. Go and read the comments for a giggle. I’m sure most of us moms can relate! LOL

You Should Get Out of the House Syndrome @ At The Well was inspiring and oh, so true.

Educational Philosophies Defined, Part I and Educational Philosophies Defined, Part II @ Simple Home school were quite eye-opening. Chloe is "practicing" school right now at age 3 but we do plan to home school. My church uses Beka and I had assumed that I would simply purchase the curriculum and we’d work through it at home just like she would if she were at school. After reading these, I am seeing how flexible homeschooling can be. There are several methods that appeal to me and I think we may end up being one of those eclectic families! After browsing various sites, I came across the Ontario school curriculum. In my wanderings, it appears that you can basically teach your child what you want, how you want. You may choose to have your children tested using CAT tests in the appropriate grades but I don’t see any requirements about having a certain number of subjects, hours etc. I’ll have to investigate more! If you have any links pertaining to homeschooling (laws and guidelines in Ontario or anywhere else, curriculum and resources) please share them in the comments!


  1. I’ll have to check out these blogsites, they are all new to me but sound great.

    Thank you for the comment on my post last week – you are right, little ones grow up way too fast!

  2. I don’t normally comment on blogs.. But this is great blog! I just bookmarked your site.
