About Fred Phelps? Since I'm in Missouri and he's in Kansas, every now and then his little bunch will come out where we are such as during military funerals or a controversial speech at the local college. I find his take on Biblical truth amazing. In a bad way. His website: http://www.godhatesfags.com/index.html

It's my opinion that the homosexual activists actually like him a lot. I wonder if they secretly give him funds so that he can buy those posters for his friends and have tantrums all over the US. We don't have to deal with the truth that this behaviour destroys lives and ruins marriages if we can compare a "God is Love" argument against this guy arguing that 9/11 and the recent mall shootings are *great* things.

It was very wrong of me to go and look at this video:

It was even MORE wrong of me to laugh at it.

It was even MORE wrong of me to include it on my blog. It isn't a Christian video. And with that being said, let me leave you with this thought:

God really does love ya! No matter who you are, honest. The Bible tells us it's the GOODNESS of God that is to lead us to repentance. Put those "God Hates (whoever)" fliers in the trash and tell Him you love Him back today. :] Bless you!

  1. You know, it's not easy for people to separate the sin from the sinner sometimes. While Fred Phelps seems deranged, it is important to note that God *loves* fags (pardon the bluntness), but He hates sin. He doesn't hate homosexuality more or less than other sins.

  2. Yeah, as corny as the "love the sinner, hate the sin" saying is, it's so true!

    Otherwise, my goodness I'm going to hell. My drivers' license says I weigh 165 pounds!!!

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…
