A Lifestyle Education through Discipleship

Would you agree that you want your children to have knowledge, to know
 things--including things like how to read, write, and compute?  Would you
 agree that you want your children to be wise, to make proper decisions 
and act on them appropriately in life?

"The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of
 the holy is understanding."  And the fear of the Lord is the beginning of
 knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.  Proverbs 9:10 and
 1:7  Wisdom is the most important thing we are to seek.  Wisdom is the
 principle thing.  Therefore get wisdom and with all your getting get 

If you agree to the words above so eloquently written by my friend Lisa
 over at Me And My House then you will love her newest resource
 creatively called Freedom and Simplicity on R Road to Biblical Wisdom. 
 You can read more about it HERE on her website.  She goes on to say 
"true learning is a process of gaining wisdom, understanding and knowledge.
  This process of learning is really several processes, both internal and
 external, that work together as we receive new ideas and information, reflect 
upon them, reason through them Biblically, integrate them into our lives 
and thought processes, and then produce our own individual output based
 upon them.  Here is a glimpse of the table of contents and some of the 
wonderful and creative methods she uses in her homeschool as she teaches
her family of ten children.  As you will see, she has covered many topics and
 given great ideas on how to implement them.

Chapter 3 ~
Learning Maps

And the wealth of knowledge doesn't end there.  In chapter 5 she
 covers the following--

Book of Remembrance Journals and other Formats
Essays and Other Compositions
Learning Maps and Other Graphics
Journaling Pages
Book of Remembrance Journal Organization
Journals-Worthy, But Not the Key Goal

I have been homeschooling now for 23 years and Lisa's work was an eye
 opener for me.  I can imagine what great help it would be for someone
 just beginning the journey of educating their families at home.  Thanks Lisa.  

Lisa has written many such guides leaning on her many years of raising,
 feeding, and homeschooling her large family.  To view her resources that
 she offers visit her website by clicking HERE.

Hey, this is random & totally unrelated, but do you do kefir? I was reading about that & soaking grains, and I'm curious. I know you soak, so I wondered if you do kefir?
