using e-Sword

e-Sword is a free downloaded bible program that is really great. Once you download the program there are other bible versions, commentaries, notes, etc. that you can download and add to it. Some of the additional components do cost money, but a large majority is free!

I found this post how one homeschool mom uses e-Sword as she prepares weekly using the Judah Bible Curriculum. It is a great post on how to use e-Sword whether you use JBC or not.

what kind of example are you?

Over the summer I plan out the school year as lots of hs moms do, of course. I think my best laid plans lasted all of two weeks…maybe even three. Over Christmas break and the New Year I try to start a fresh again. I think I’m still waiting for that perfect week. You know the week that all your planning goes just like it’s supposed to! I know you are laughing by now–we all know that this NEVER happens. So why do we get so frustrated at the end of every week when things don’t go our way–but maybe, just maybe they’ve gone JUST the way the Lord wanted them to go!

There is no perfect curriculum, no perfect lesson plan, no perfect mom. I found this post on the Tapestry of Grace site. It was written by one of the authors grown children–I hope it is an encouragement to you to love Jesus in front of your kids! That IS the most important thing!

Psalm 78:4

We will not hide them from their children, Telling to the generation to come the praises of the LORD, And His strength and His wonderful works that He has done.
