Living Loving Learning

Time to Eat!

In Family on Wednesday, September 3, 2008 at 8:54 am

Since there are 10 writers here, this will be a rather lengthy post.  But check out what each person will “bring to the table”.  We don’t all agree with each other on everything, but we do agree to love each other, no matter what!


Most everyone works, either part-time or full-time, and some are students and work part-time or even full-time! 


You’ll probably hear from the girls more than the guys, because, well….we just talk a lot! J


From me you’ll still hear the encouragement that you can make it as a home educating parent and live to tell about it.   Things on gardening, Bible, raising kids,  and life in general.



I plan to bring practical ideas and maybe even alternatives to status quo thinking to the table. Subjects such as finances, politics, raising and managing a family and ideas of decision making will be my areas of concentration.








What I  will bring to the table:
 ~My perspectives on growing up as the oldest in a large family, a homeschooler who is homeschooling her children, and a country girl; oh and any other thing I feel like giving my perspective on . . . because believe me . . . I always have a perspective on stuff!
~Tips on fitness, nutrition, weight loss, cooking, gardening, scrapbooking, debt-free living, homeschooling, and living life with purpose
  ~My journey in being a wife, mother, child of God and full-time stay-at-home homeschooling mom that is pretty hip and cool – ha ha, well you can be the judge of that!



What I will bring to the table. I will be sharing an endless supply of yummy recipes, weight loss tips, reviews of books I love, fun and easy craft projects, hair tips, things about my adorable girls, tips on organizing your chaotic life, and sharing in my walk to become a woman of God.



What I will bring to the table. What I learned in college, lessons of a young father, adult league sports, my life as an accountant, current events in sports, and my lessons with the Lord.



Off the top of my head, here are ideas on what I could contribute:
Do-It-Yourself craft projects
Nifty/Thrifty gift-giving
Creative ways to recycle/manage your time/avoid clutter/get organized
Tips on being frugal
Cake decorating (of course)
Book/Movie reviews
Seeing God’s hand in my life








What I will bring to the table:
-Stories from the ER
-Ways to keep you out of the ER
-Adventures of nursing school
-Quick recipes (especially using the crockpot)
-Lessons I learned in Israel/Egypt








What I bring to the table:  My thoughts on some theological issues, traveling stories and tips, and maybe some random quotes or facts. 🙂








What I will bring to the table, besides the good looks and the outstanding wit, okay I’m kidding… ½ way kidding.)  I will be bringing many insightful and encouraging stories about our culture of students in today’s world. I will also share my experiences in losing 75 pounds and the things I learned during that long and difficult time.  Plus, fun spontaneous thoughts about what it was like growing up in a family of seven children, of which I am smack, dab in the middle.








What I will bring to the table:  Things that I’ve come across in my life that mean a lot to me, and random thoughts that go through my head everyday.
