Proverbs 22:3 – Cultural Secession

February 28, 2008

(Pro 22:3) A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself: but the simple pass on, and are punished. I ended the last post with this verse and I thought it would be worth a little commentary.  The concept here is not about hiding in the hills because there is trouble.  The idea is to be…

There are several questions every homeschooling family is asked at one time or another?  A common one is, “But what about socialization?”  Several weeks ago,  we visited a local restaurant and received the stares and looks we always get when we walk into a public place.  However, seated not to far from us, was another family that…

We had a very eventful day full of remembering and giving thanks for the Providential hand of God in our lives.  Daddy read the historical account of how the Gospel was spread westward and laid out God’s Providential guiding hand in the lives of the Separatists who fled their homeland for Holland and then 12…

Inventive Boys

Our boys are pretty content running around here getting into all sorts of inventive, creative projects that cause me to either turn my head and pretend I don’t see what they are doing or cause me to be thankful that they are happily work-playing.  The lack of brain stimulation to get those creative juices flowing…

Our friend Mark has a great post on his site that was a breath of fresh air today.  My wife likes to write about women being women and embracing their roles as wives and mothers.  That is a great topic and it is a blessing to any man who has ever had a wife whose…

Training Future Homemakers: Transferring the Culinary Art Skills to the Next Generation

Meal planning and preparation is certainly an art as well as a science. I have been reading about sourdough bread and the science of the process was quite interesting. I have trying to make my own breads and with that in mind, I started with making homemade tortillas, now I am ready to move on…

Homemaking Rethought

September 26, 2006
By

The feminist movement would have us believe that the life of homemaking is only for uneducated, low achieving, lazy women who do not have any ambition to do anything profound with their lives. In reality, the mother and homemaker, who do in fact throw themselves into the high calling of home, are far from uneducated,…

Real Homegrown Pumpkins and Barn Cats

There are still things in life that are real.  I laugh when I read something on a food label that says something like “made with real cheese” or “contains real blueberries”  — as opposed to made with “fake cheese” and “fake blueberries” — ohh wait, that is possible right! Well, these are our real pumpkin…

Full Days out on a Farm

Since moving to our little 2 acre place in the country, I can’t remember a more busy time in my life involving multiple activities. I still have the usual laundry and cooking and babies. That in itself takes up more time in the day than there are hours. However, I have discovered that more things…

Preserving Grandfather’s Story

On our recent trip to visit family, my mother and I stayed up very late one evening going through old pictures and papers.  I learned many interesting bits of information about my own heritage, but one piece of information especially inspired me.  My mother handed me a stack of papers and said that it was…
