I homeschool and am always on the lookout for new homeschooling books. I found this little gem on Amazon.com and laughed when I read the book description. The words used sound very Maxwellian, if you know what I mean. :wink-penguin:

This short eBook is all about what I have learned on my homeschooling journey thus far, and why I feel it is so important to keep our focus on GOD in our homeschools.

 

It has been an amazing journey for me and I can't wait to encourage you all with what I have learned along the way!

 

With Matthew 6:33 as the basis, this eBook will focus on:

 

 

Getting rid of physical clutter and organization tips

Getting rid of mental clutter

Curriculum choices

Schedules

Meal planning

Letting God lead your homeschool

Avoiding the comparison trap, and letting your homeschool be YOUR homeschool

Not letting homeschool become an idol-Keeping GOD first

 

 

 

 

It is my desire to encourage others out there to live more simply in all areas of our lives, and this eBook focuses specifically on simplifying homeschooling.

 

 

When we keep God first in our homeschools, we can have the true JOY that is meant for our families.

By not doing anything most people would consider schooling?

Yes, it would certainly make homeschooling a lot easier if you let God do the teaching. :lol:

How the hell does homeschooling become an idol? Inquiring minds want to know. :?

I guess it's an idol when learning becomes the main reason for homeschooling, and religion becomes a secondary consideration. For these SOTDRT homeschoolers, God should be the main focus for everything, even if it means giving their kids a substandard education.

Homeschooling is a hard thing to do well, and it involves lots of time, energy and commitment. This ebook gives other homeschoolers the impression that as long as they focus on God in their homeschool they have done enough and the academics don't matter. This is so not true, and the kids will suffer for her taking the easy route and letting God lead her school.

Focus on God, FOCUS on God, FOCUS ON GOD...it's the mantra that keeps them brainwashed isn't it? The fear they must feel when they catch themselves focusing on something else.

I'm guessing the same way Pepsi becomes an idol.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      I highly recommend Not the Good Girl's Youtube channel. She is making great documentaries about cults.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.
