The Word

A Homeschool Mom

Whats_in_a_NameWhat’s in a name? A name is more than just something by which we are called; in a sense, it is our reputation. Did you know there are a multitude of names for God? Each name unique and powerful; the list is endless.

Join us on this exciting adventure through Scripture, where we will learn some amazing verses, talk about how those verses should affect our lives, and discuss some practical ways to make these names “real”.


“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14

In John, ‘the Word’ refers to Jesus Christ. John gives us a glimpse into the relationship the Father and Son had together before the Son came to earth. Christ existed with the Father before the world began. Christ helped with the creation…

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) A child’s brain is unique from an adult’s brain, and it requires specialized treatment. Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital’s pediatric neurosurgery program is the largest in West Michigan.

The pediatric neurosurgery team treats many things including brain tumors, spinal cord injuries, and congenital conditions, such as spina bifida. The team focuses on minimally invasive procedures because of their great benefit to the patient, including shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, smaller incisions, less trauma and fewer side effects.

Overfull plate

Well, I’ve definitely had an overfull plate this week. My husband and I were given his granny’s home when she passed back in September, we opted to sell it instead and set the money aside for bills and a down payment on a home of our own, now that the trailer has sold, quite quickly might I add, some of our bills can get paid, however, we’ll have a bigger dilemma, moving ourselves out of my m.i.l’s. I told my hubby tonite, that it was time to go anyhow, we’ve been here for a year and a half and so as not to have bad blood between the three of us, it’s time for us to go. It doesn’t per say matter where, but time to go. Then tonite, hubby gets bad news about his best bud’s brother, he committed suicide last night. He let Satan get inside his mind and thoughts, helped him alert authorities, and helped him shoot himself. Prayers be with his family this week and for Christmas and New Years.

I pray everyone has a great night. Hug and kiss your loved ones. Pay attention to them, you never know when they’re fighting a battle you know nothing about.

Being thankful

Lately, I take some of my family for granted. I take the time I have with them for granted. Has anybody else done this or is it just me? I bet not. So, I just wanted to say thank you to my hubby, my wonderful kids and both of my mothers for being in my life. I love you very much. I hope everybody had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.
