I am a reader. I love to read in fact! So, I am going to share some of my favorite book titles with you. Many of these books have been mind-altering or life-changing for me.

These are books I have read:

Sorry for the delay…

Well, it has been more than a week since I posted anything here. I am sorry.  My entire family and I are recovering from what we are not-so-affectionately calling the “Bubonic Flu”. It has been a struggle and we are not all of the way out of the woods yet, but we are getting there slowly but surely. Any prayers you may have to offer for us would be greatly appreciated. I hope to be back on top of my blogging game soon.

Hi and welcome! I will tell you a little bit about myself. My name is Jenni, and I am a  32 year-old wife and mother. I have been married to my dear husband Jayson for almost 10 years. We have 5 beautiful children ranging in ages 7 1/2 to 1, with a new little one due in late August. We are a  big, happy, Christian homeschooling family.  This blog is designed to build-up and encourage families with a biblical worldview.  Topics you will find here are  home education, traditional Christian family values, and allowing the Lord to plan your family size by not limiting the number of your children. Other related topics include raising boys to be patriarchs, girls to be keepers at home, Biblical courtship, and modesty. This blog is  designed to always give glory to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ first and foremost! Thanks for visiting and come back again soon! God Bless!
