Find Joy in the Everyday – June 3, 2015

I am in the midst of creating a Homeschool Co-op (ok more like re-creating and re-locating after a year break). First Presbyterian has happily stepped up and provided us a space and resources. They went even a step further and we discussed homeschooling on the local christian tv station yesterday. You can watch it here:

My week has been full of joyful moments: homeschooling fun, work, and still steadily unpacking our cardboard treasure boxes.

How have you been finding joy this week? Link up with us and let us know.

Throughout the summer I have two new series: Military Staycations and My Favorite Home School Resources. My weekly giveaways and book reviews will continue as well as the monthly installment to Women of the Bible.

Featured Post from Last Week’s LinkUp

cropped-sglogoheaderThis week our featured post is from Surely Goodness. Kristen shared her post, We Are More Beautiful for Having Been Broken, on last week’s link up. It’s the hard moments, the ones that break us that shape us and make us more beautiful. Kristen’s post is beautiful. I hope you read every word. I would love to hear your stories in the comments below on how God has turned your brokenness into beauty.
