God requires the mother to answer only for the input that she makes.
Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.

I reminisce a lot about...it's gone.
I was in junior high school, once. Don't laugh. I studied homemaking (how to make fluffy biscuits, sew a blouse, decorate an interior, and manage a budget), all things many women now wish they knew how to do. The goal was to be able to provide the support system for a man. The man, it … Continue reading Wives and Lovers?
. Don't you cherish listening to people who share awe-inspiring stories about the beginnings of home schooling their children? I do!

The opposite story is true, for some, … Continue reading Homebound Education
“Then other, more powerful creeks and rivers, aimed at destruction, joined the growing leaks, carving ditches and gulleys—breeding places for snakes and vermin to hide and strike at will.”

I have been moving some mulch, from a storage pile to our flowerbeds. It had been a deep pile of decomposing pine needles. Under it, in place of the grass, was mellow topsoil, the stuff gardeners dream about. Evidently, earthworms consider it the stuff of dreams, too, because as I bustled about, I discovered several … Continue reading Smarter than a Worm? Let’s See…
