Philippians 3:1-11... Into the Unknown! :).. Sing it out!

I just wanted to elaborate on the beautiful scripture we read this morning. Philippians 3:1-11
Paul talks about how there is no human effort that can bring us to God, but that it is a gift given to us because of what Christ Jesus has done for us. And that although Paul, when he was Saul, walked a near blameless life as far as the written law, Paul now counts it as nothing because of what Christ has done - the infinite value in His love for us. And then the clincher: “For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” -Philippians 3:9. 
And this is where the Holy Spirit... the miracle of the Holy Spirit within each one of us comes to life. Faith being an intangible, untouchable, mystical element is not for us to hold onto or rationalize - the Holy Spirit acts as a bridge for our souls to connect with the mystical... and venture  “into the unknown!” :) yes, I even sang it this morning. 
The Holy Spirit, Jesus’ presence multiplied infinitely because of His death on the cross …

Hey All! How is everyone doing?

We will be on days 138-143 this week.

As we are beginning to wrap up a few things for the school year, I encourage you to find creative ways to learn and grow as a family. 5th grade will finish up their math workbooks this week. After they finish, I would like them to work on their 12, 13, 14, & 15 times tables... and any other they need reviewing. Perhaps just pick one table (1-10) and a second table from the (12-15) group for each day. Feel free to be creative in reviewing anything from the year.

1-3rd Math. If you would like to take a break from math facts and do 2 pages/day from the math workbook, that would work. That is what our family is going to do since they are review pages - but you can decide for yourself. Otherwise, you can finish the last review days over the summer as well.

5th will also be finishing up language arts. When the workbook is done, please finish up the year by writing a story! This can be fiction or based on facts.

Hey All!

This week we will be on Days 133-137. The curriculum is almost done for the year, congratulations! And I hope you are enjoying reviewing with your family. I hope you are able to explore some of the end of the year projects as well... or a variation that fits your family.

Our bible verse this week: Matthew 28:20 And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.

Also with bible - we are going to read the rest of Matthew 28 tomorrow and move on to reading Philippians, about a half a chapter/day. So will be reading to the end of chapter 2 by the end of the week.

Math facts: 1st= 40+4 to 60+4, 2nd= 60-4 to 80-4, 3rd= 5xs & 6xs.


I pray you are able to use this time to lean into God and know that His grace is sufficient in all circumstances and in all ways. Let Him be everything. Explore your passions that He placed within you, rest in Him, grow as a family - and may He use each one of us to be lights in the broken world.

March 23 - March 27

Good Morning!

Hope everyone is well. God loves you so much.

Just so we all stay on the same days, this week will be days 128-132.

Math Facts:
1st - 30+3 to 50+3
2nd - 50+5 to 70+5

Bible Verse : Psalm 39: 7 And so, Lord, where do I put my hope? My only hope is in you.
Psalm 34:4 I prayed to the Lord, and he answered me. He freed me from all my fears.

We have such a good Father. I pray that the peace that transcends all human understanding fills your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. We are loved by a Sovereign and Good Father. There is no need to fear.

God Loves You!

We need not fear what we don’t know when we know Him. Enjoy the gift of today and our most beautiful Savior. 


Freedom to Choose.

It’s crazy, but while we live in a ‘free’ country - many of us live lives that speak otherwise. We are bound by expectations and man-made plans. We do what we do mostly because that is what we are told or expected to do... and then something like this happens where we are given the freedom of time... and choices... a blessing most of us are not sure what to do with. 
I can’t help but spend time right now reveling in the truth that we are created in God’s image... It doesn’t take much exploring of God’s creation to see that we have a very creative God. I truly believe somewhere within each one of us, whether it be building, sculpting, photography, painting, planting, music, crafts, writing, etc - we have a desire to create and explore, a sometimes very buried or hidden desire - but a desire... a yearning in our soul. 
I’m so incredibly thankful for a break from the chaos. An opportunity to slow down and connect with God. I pray with all my heart - as a culture - we are able to let go of …

Christ Alone, Cornerstone.

We are free not because of circumstances but because we are not of this world. (John 15:19) We have a God that can make all things work for the good of those that love Him. (Romans 8:28) I don’t think for a moment that God wants things like this to happen or to see His children scared, but if we are willing to ‘watch in wonder’ we will be able to watch Him take chaos and create light. (Isaiah 55:8 - My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways.) We have a God of infinite wisdom. 
The truth is, He is everything. I don’t think we are reminded of this often enough, not even in our churches. But in this life here, this is just a pixel in the big show. There is more to the story. Death of our earthly bodies is simply our final act of faith here on this earth. We need not fear what we don’t know when we know Him. There is so much more to come... so much better than we can even begin to understand.
Isaiah 29:16 It is a precious cornerstone that is safe to build on. Whoever …

A quick note and update.

Hey!

We will not be going to Wookey's next Monday, March 23.

Along with pics from a couple weeks ago.

John 14:27 I am leaving you with a gift -- peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don't be troubled or afraid.

Let Him be everything... His grace is certainly sufficient. -2 Corinthians 12:9







HomeSchooling at Wookeys.

Hey all!

Today was truly beautiful in every way. God is simply awesome... I don’t honestly have words that do justice - but it had His fingerprints all over it... peace, joy, kindness...

We will be returning every other Monday - and playing BINGO the second Monday. I will put it on our upcoming events on the sidebar - but for now the next dates:

Feb 11 @ 2:00 for BINGO
Feb 17 @ 9:30 for School

Thanks everyone for playing along on this little adventure we call life.

Our bible verse this week : Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and all your soul, and all your mind.

He won’t disappoint!

And a few pics :) (We were working with some big numbers today!)






2019 Year End Report and Pics!

I think it’s quite appropriate and a little funny that our bible verse this week is :

Matthew 22:21 - Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and give to God what belongs to God.

Just in time for the year end report :). Thank you to all who continue to support the school, not just fiscally but in all ways. I am humbled to be part of this adventure.

And some pics from this morning. After devotions and before work, we went for an amazing little walk because it was so beautiful!

Hey all!

I have a couple items for you to consider. I was able to talk to Dala today at Wookey’s, and we are going to try something, with your permission - and you can absolutely opt out if you would prefer. This will not affect the school day as far as the current schedule, as we will be able to supply rides for all children who are interested in trying this.

In watching our culture, I continue to see a growing trend of children wanting attention... always :) and older folks wanting to provide that - and yet we separate them and put them in their respective corners... and never shall the two meet. I feel this burden has been put on my heart to at least ask a few questions and hold God’s hand while He works his magic. We are going to try to HomeSchool with a few of the residents at Wookey’s. It sounded like we should be able to come up with enough residents so there would be a 1 to 1 ratio. Bev said she would help with orchestrating. Bev and Susan both offered to help with driving. If…

2019 Christmas Program & Pics

Happy New Year!

Hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas break!

Here is the Christmas program along with a few pics. It was such a magical night and God continues to awe me in His ability to work through and for so many people at the same time. I'm very thankful to be part of BCS and the community that continues to grow.

Just a quick note. Hope everyone is enjoying their books! With our early dismissal, I'm going to continue to send home books with children to read during the afternoons after we start back up again. Thanks again for taking on this challenge with me. Blessings to you and yours.
Philippians 4:8 Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.
