This Side Up Christmas Concert!

Our SHINE Teen Band…This Side Up held their first Christmas Concert last night! They did wonderful! Great job everyone! They spent many hours in practice for this concert and it really showed!

Here are a few pictures of from the event (and of our family), and below are the videos of the actual concert. It is in two parts because I had to change out the batteries! These were taken on my digital camera….so they may not be the best quality (plus I had to compress them in order to post them), but they work pretty well!

Homeschooling..twice the kids, twice the fun!

I am helping out a friend who has gone back to college recently by watching/homeschooling her kids with mine a couple of days a week. It is always a lot of fun and the kids all get along, so that is always a plus!!

I took a few pictures today of everyone at various stages of school or fun! The little girls have made “houses/forts” throughout the day in addition to my youngest deciding it was time to make Fall/Thanksgiving crafts already! (I didn’t get a picture of those yet!)

Anyway, just thought I would share! The kids have done really well today with getting things accomplished.

My kids are listening to the online science class we are doing. It has been a great learning tool thus far!

See the information here…you can still sign up and do the classes at your leisure as all sessions are being recorded and all information is archived!!

(My oldest is looking down at our kitten which she has inside her jacket at the moment!)

Here is the new kitten…it will be able to go to a new home in a few weeks! It is about 7 1/2 weeks old now!

Creation Science Class and other great resources!!

Hi, all! Things have been so busy with getting school started this year! We are involved in a multitude of activities this year! Things are going really well so far! 🙂

I will be posting some pictures and updates about what we are studying and some interesting learning events we have had…one being our cat having a kitten…yes, only one! 🙂

I wanted to share this information with everyone! It is a great opportunity to learn about Creation Science and there are also a number of other great resources being offered this fall!

Enjoy!

Hi, all! I wanted to pass on this new opportunity to join a Science class for 6 weeks from the comfort of your home!

These classes start Monday, September 22nd. Our family will be joining in on this class also! We did the preview class on the 8th. It was really good!

This class is a great supplement to anything you may already be studying at the moment!!

Below is an article by the lady leading the class. It is definitely worth the cost of the class for all the students in your home to be able to participate! You will have access to several ebook files, plus all the sessions will be recorded and archived for you to access if you can’t join the live class, or want to listen more than once!

Please read over what is being offered by clicking on the links for the Creation Science Kids Class! It is great!

Why is Creation Important?


By Felice Gerwitz

Creation Science Kids Class–starts September 22nd!!

Perhaps you have never given much thought to the topic of Creation, the effect it has on people’s lives, or how much it shapes one’s belief system. I know that for years I fell into this category. When faced with evolutionary claims I ignored most, considering them false. While I believed the Bible, considered it to contain the truth of how the world began, believed it was the inspired Word of God and infallible, I had no idea how to respond to those who didn’t. I began to seriously study the topic when I became a homeschool parent and “happened” to meet Jill Whitlock who had once been an agnostic and now was a Christian and Creation Scientist. She showed me many evidences for Creation and thus my fascination with the topic began.

Recently, I was lamenting to the Lord. (I do this from time to time!) I knew I must have misunderstood His call to write and teach others about this topic of Creation. You see it was the Christmas season and I was caught up with the duties of wife, mother and homeschool parent. I was also trying to get the third novel in the mystery series (TruthSeekersMysterySeries.com) my daughter and I had co-authored to print. Even after having it professionally edited every time I read the document I found more and more typos. I was dismayed. The deadline for the first week of December had passed. Therefore, my lament to the Lord!

Yet, God in his infinite wisdom and mercy indeed showed me His will. Of all places it was while shopping at a local membership only store. Here, I noticed a nativity I wished to purchase. Being a bit pricey I wanted to consult my husband. Later, when returning to buy it, I offered to take my newly married nephew and his wife to shop at the store. All these things were in God’s perfect plan. The nativity was encased in glass, and there, perched on the shepherd’s shoulder, was an expensive linen calling card. I would never have plucked it off, but my nephew had no qualms about sticking his hand into the scene, pulling it away, and handing it to me. There was my answer.

As I read the front of the card tears stung my eyes.  I could barely open the card to see whose signature it contained… I wanted to write to this person and let them know how much I disagreed! I wanted to tell the person there was hope! There is a God and He is Love! Imagine my surprise when I saw the signature was the Darwinian evolutionary fish! I was stunned. Later, as I read the card I realized the Lord had allowed me to see it. It was as if He was saying, “You see, Felice? When people embrace a belief in evolution that does not include me they are left to their own devices.” Indeed they are. Christians are not fools as this card extols. Christians have it right! This topic is very relevant and important. It should be at the forefront of your education and taught to children of all ages.

But, where do you begin? First, become armed with information. Just believing the Scriptures tell the truth, while commendable is only the beginning. You must understand that is a volatile topic. Unfortunately, the topic of Creation vs. evolution is not only controversial but it is difficult to discuss. Tempers at times flare and the conversation can get out of control. Regrettably this is a way to insure the doors will remain closed instead of open. The fear of those who believe evolution is real. Their fear stems from the following fact: if evolution is discredited, the entire humanistic worldview would go up in smoke!

Do you realize that not one of Darwin’s theories some 144+ years after they were first proposed has ever been proven? The theory of evolution has exerted influence over our world and culture. Humanists believe man is a “natural phenomenon” just like plants and animals. They believe the mind and soul just happened and they were not supernaturally created.

But how do we arm ourselves and our children to logically discuss the topic? Remember, before every discussion pray for the right words and trust in the Lord. He makes crooked paths straight!
