I am a 43 year old Homeschooling mother of three (Liese!). Joel 22 (graduated), Bethany 17, Grace 14, Hannah 11. I’m also a MOD in our HS group, blogger, artist, poet, dancer and lover of learning. I’ve been married for 24 years to my wonderful providing husband James, who keeps me sane by watching the kids while I go to Mom’s night out, and works hard so that I can stay home and school our children!


Right now we use an eclectic home school curriculum for all grades, online K12 homeschooling for 5th and an on-line school called Destinations Career Academy of Colorado that uses the K-12 curriculum for 9th grade and 12th. In December 2011 we graduated Joel with 2 college courses under his belt and a 4.0 GPA. He attained his private pilot’s license in May 2012 and his EMT cert in the Fall of 2012. He is now an EMT. (2016 he is SPC Carberry an Army Field Medic.)

We live in Highlands Ranch, CO and love it. Originally we’re from Texas, but we, did I mention this, love it here.

I’m a child of the Most High King, Jesus Christ. When I hear these lyrics “I’m forgiven because You were forsaken, I’m accepted You were condemned. I’m alive and well Your Spirit lives within me, because You died and rose again.” I feel so low, because when I have a bad day or am cross I’m throwing my unmerited Grace away, and that grieves God’s spirit. So I am trying to remember that I accepted Jesus and I need to be joyous and filled with love and all the fruit of the Spirit, otherwise why be a Christian? If people never see the fruit of the Spirit, why would they want to become a Christian? I am trying harder to be a city on a hill and let my light shine for Jesus.
