A special thank you to each one who voted for Cruz and encouraged friends to do the same. I’ll be honest. Hearing the news of Cruz ending his campaign was highly disappointing.
In all of this, we’re reminded that the Lord is in control. “A man’s heart deviseth his way: but the Lord directeth his steps” (Proverbs 16:9). So yes, while it’s true, we would have loved to have a President Cruz, that’s obviously not going to happen.
Jeremiah 29:11 is an incredible verse reminding us of God’s plans. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.”
May we join together in prayer for our nation to turn back to God! “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land” (2 Chronicles 7:14).

“Now therefore, O our God, hear the prayer of thy servant, and his supplications, and cause thy face to shine upon thy sanctuary that is desolate, for the Lord’s sake.” Daniel 9:17
Tuesday, May 3rd, is your day to vote. Please don’t let anything keep you from going to the polls. This isn’t a choice of vanilla or chocolate: your children’s future is in the balance. Those of you who have friends there, please text or e-mail them and encourage them to get out and vote for the best choice for president, Ted Cruz.
We strongly support Senator Ted Cruz and what he stands for (remember: he’s for homeschooling!). We think his pick of Carly Fiorina for a running mate was a wise, strategic choice.
“For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil.” 1 Peter 3:12
If you’re a parent, you know how incredible it is to have time away with no distractions or interruptions from the children. If you’re a homeschool mom, you also know how enjoyable homeschool conferences are. Combine the two of those, and you have an amazing duo!
This past weekend, Nathan and Melanie and Christopher and Anna Marie were able to do just that, with the ever-exciting Aunt Anna, Aunt Mary, and Grandma holding down the fort while they were gone.
For clarity sake as you look through the picture diary below, Nathan and Melanie left Friday evening and returned Saturday evening. Christopher and Anna Marie left Saturday morning and returned Sunday.
Now Saturday morning.
Aunt Anna and Aunt Mary took all the kids to a park to play on the playground and then had a picnic. They made quite a sweet sight as they set out!
They had visits from the uncles.
Filling out a textbook order.
Saturday evening, Nathan and Melanie had their kids again, and now we had Christopher’s kids over.
What a sweet crew! Good job, Mom, Anna, and Mary for all your childcare!

Even if you have the book, think about another mom you could bless. For those dads reading this post, consider the impact this simple book and session could have on your wife.
One mom said: “This book was by far one of the best books I’ve read. It is not just for homeschooling moms, but any mom who wants to be the best mom she can be. It was challenging, enlightening and encouraging.”
