Remain Ready

The LORD said to Moses, “Walk out in front of the people. Take your staff, the one you used when you struck the water of the Nile, and call some of the elders of Israel to join you. Exodus 17:5

1. Don't forget how God uses what we deem "ordinary" (For Moses, his walking stick) to do extraordinary things. 

2. Just because your gift hasn't been used for a while doesn't mean it's not needed again. Keep your gift (in this symbolic case, Moses' staff) at the ready and in your hand. 

3. Call the elders in your community to join the miracle God has placed in your heart. Not only will they "prove" your gift (via testing, as gold is "proven" by fire) it will add joy to their life.

Homeschool Inspiration

AWESOME read about #homeschool. (This started as a tweet that turned into an FB post, that turned into a blog. Link of inspiration is at the bottom.)

There is a “fix” to schools, of course. Get rid of your cookie cutters & stop forcing ALL materials into the same box. Glue is less messy in a squeeze bottle. Ice, on the other hand, doesn’t do its job well in a glue bottle. Besides kids’ uniqueness, even parents’ styles and needs are different from each other. Schools generally act like we live in the 1960's and all work the same hours, and all eat at the same time, and... STOP! None of us do anything like they did in the past. Whether we like it, or not, we now live in a very unique place in history where majority doesn't rule. Creativity rules. Colleges will take an athlete with low test scores. And they'll ALSO take a computer genius with low reading scores. Society is open and accepting of a singular strength now, rather than an overall balance of one's grade point average. 

Schools, treat us like unique, creative beings and we might share OUR joy of learning with YOU. Disrespect our unique styles of learning and we won’t bother to share our sponge-brained children with you. Turns out, we can do it ourselves. :) 

Now let me balance this, by telling homeschool parents that if you don’t train your children how to interact with other humans from the privacy of your homeschool environment, you’ll give homeschool a bad name. Teachers are REALLY good at making kids able to sit still, remain quiet, etc. Don’t cripple your child by not including “behavioral skills” while you also teach math skills. If you don’t have the courage to add social manners to your training, HIRE A TUTOR. If you’ll hire a tutor to teach math, you can hire help in teaching self-control too.

This mama loves homeschooling!! :)
