My new home on the net

Welcome to my new home on the net. I have had a blog on www.pleonast.com for the past five years or so…so I'm not entirely new to the world of blogging. I have always loved to write! I have enjoyed my time there and plan to continue to some degree. However, this new blog will be my focus! Pragmatically speaking, I am able to do a lot more here and to save my blogs in a more permanent way.

Pleonast has been a great place to blog — I renewed old friendships and even made new friends; enjoyed reading about what was happening with my friends and enjoyed sharing my life with my readers. I am certain that I will continue to enjoy that aspect of Pleonast!

However much I enjoyed it, I have wanted to have a place that was just mine — my very own blog. My husband — techie extraordinnare — and I made a project of it and here it is!

Hello there world! I'm Sally and I'm Carpe Diem Mom!

Families who teach at home – the diversity

I have read many articles addressing various ways to identify home schooling mothers or home schooling families in general. Many are rather successful attempts at humor and encouragement, noting similarities shared among families. A comment in one of them (by a mother who felt out of place in slacks in “a sea of denim jumpers”) brought to mind a few things that may be helpful to address in a more serious fashion.

Home educators are united in that they often share a strong conviction that they can give their children a superior education: academically and morally. Most Christians who teach at home are diligently trying to follow God’s ways rather than man’s ways. Their strong convictions result in many similarities among families: careful attention to child training, modest dress, censorship of profane and vulgar materials, and diligent attention to God’s word.

Paving the way for a happy marriage – a few words to wives

Whoso findeth a wife findeth a good thing, and obtaineth favour of the LORD. (Proverbs 18:22).

Next to God, the most important person in a wife’s life is her husband. Often wives are guilty of holding their husbands to their own expectations and standards or comparing them to other men. Learn what kind of a man you are married to—and remember that you were created to be HIS help meet. Be content with him! Discontent is the main ingredient in an unhappy marriage.

Knowing our own husband’s hobbies, likes, dislikes, personality traits, strengths and weaknesses will help us to love him in a way that pleases him—and ultimately pleases God. Consider some of these practical ways a wife can love her husband and pave the way for a ‘Song of Solomon’ kind of love in your relationship.
