Adjustments by Jill Hart, CWAHM.com

Adjustments are to be expected in a life where work, home and family mix and the lines are not always clearly drawn. As Christian Work At Home Moms, we are challenged by God not only to expect adjustments, but to welcome them. We know that He will only give us what we can handle and that He provides what we need for each situation. "I can do all things in Him that strengtheneth me." Philippians 4:13

I often think that when my daughter comes over and asks for something, or even just seeks my attention that I "shouldn't" turn away from my work. I "need" to get my work done. But, how much easier would it be for me to make an adjustment to my schedule (and my attitude!) and take some time out for her. She is to be my first priority when I am home. Yes, work is very important, and I believe it is my second priority when working from home.

Be Kind to Human Kind Week - Adopt a Grandparent

Many children do not live close enough to visit their grandparents. Sometimes there are no living grandparents. You and your children may want to consider "adopting" a grandparent.

You and your children could visit the local nursing home. Many nursing homes have such programs available. If not, consider setting up one.

Older children can check on the older neighbors. They can offer to run errands, help with some light yard or handy work, or even walk the dog.

Marcus visits with Beverly and Keisha, her dog, on a weekly basis. They have enjoyed watching Marcus grow up. He occasionally helps out by picking the ripe lemons from their lemon trees. Marcus also gets much out of the relationship. He learns to have respect for older adults and enjoy their company.

I found a terrific website, The Adopt-A-Grandparent. Please feel free to visit it for more information.


Have a great weekend.

Rona's Book Review: Homeschooling The Teen Years by Cafi Cohen

"Homeschooling The Teen Years - Your Complete Guide to Successfully Homeschooling the 13 to 18 Year Old" by Cafi Cohen. I absolutely love this book! It's jammed pack full of resources, tips and helpful information. I highlighted this one and will be keeping it my personal library. Cafi Cohen doesn't recommend one homeschooling style over another. It's all about you and your child's learning needs. She did survey many homeschooling families. Their comments are mentioned through the book.

This book is for anyone homeschooling 13 to 18 year olds. I would recommend it for beginners and experts. There's plenty tips and suggestions that will anyone can use.
You can order this book by selecting the Amazon Icon on the rightside of our Blog.
