The Great Commission


Sarah and I finished working in the school room today. We were struggling trying to figure out what we wanted to put on the bulletin board. I enjoy putting up a new bulletin board for the beginning of the new year. Sarah and I had been talking about it and we just could not come up with a good idea for the board. I decided to think about it and see if I could come up with something catchy to use. Well, needless to say, I could not think of anything.

We are using a new curriculum this year for school. We are going to be using My Father’s World Exploring Countries and Cultures. Both Sarah and I are really excited about this new direction for the school year. It will be a lot of fun to learn about different countries and their cultures.

As I have been praying about the new school year, I asked the Lord to give me an idea for our bulletin board for this year. Today, the Lord laid on my heart Matthew 28:19, The Great Commission. How PERFECT this verse is for our bulletin board! I shared with Sarah what the Lord had placed on my heart for the bulletin board and she immediately LOVED it too. It is so incredible how God reveals the plans that He has for us. So, Sarah and I punched out the letters and placed them on the bulletin board. When we were done, we stepped back and we both knew it was perfect.

If you are a missionary and happen to read this blog or know of a missionary that we can pray for throughout the school year, please leave a comment below. If there is a specific need that we can be praying about also, please let me know as well. Sarah and I really want to be a blessing to those that are serving the Lord as missionaries by praying for them this year.

Hope this post has been a blessing to you today!!!


Working in the school room

Today, Sarah and I started to work in the school room. We will be starting school after Labor Day. It is always very exciting to start cleaning and organizing the school room. This will be our 7th year of homeschooling. We will be using a new curriculum this year. I will talk more about that on a later blog post.

It was fun looking through some old papers and remembering what we did last year. This year we were able to purchase two really cool cubbie book cases to use in the school room. We were moving some things around so we could put the book cases in a better spot. This is exciting because now we will have a place to put all of our books. I have always wanted book shelves in our school room, but just never found what I wanted. I was really praying about it when the Lord provided the book cases for us.

Cleaning and organizing the school room is always fun for Sarah. This is a project that she really likes to get involved in because she likes to share her ideas on how the classroom should be set up. I enjoy hearing her ideas as well as putting some of them into place too. Allowing Sarah to have input in getting the school room ready really gets her excited for the new year.

We have more to finish before the school year starts, but we did a good job today.
