She agreed to let me cook one of them so that we could make a pie. I found a recipe for a Pumpkin Maple Pie that just looked too good to pass up!… Continue reading Pumpkins, Peace and Praise
Today was our first day of lessons. The kids did really well, and due to their young ages, we kept the lessons short. We started reading a chapter a day of the book Little Pilgrim's Progress. It's a truly wonderful story, and this adaptation of John Bunyan's classic is quite readable for young children. I… Continue reading First Day

We continued with our study of John yesterday. John 19 was the particular chapter we studied. I picked up on something that I'd never really thought about. In several places John mentions that some of the actions of the Roman soldiers were the fulfillment of prophecy. When they divided up Jesus' robe and cast lots… Continue reading Fulfilling Prophecy
