Inventory Reduction Time

Well, it seems the time has come to revamp, redo, and redecorate my first book (The Homeschooling Mothers Bible Study). Things have changed so, so much since I my first self-published work and I have grown up quite a bit, as well. So I am planning to update the Bible study and will *prayerfully* have it finished in July, just in time to roll it out in all it's new prettiness for the start of the brand new homeschool year!

In the meantime, however, I decided to have an inventory reduction sale to say bye-bye to all my print copies with the cover that is ... YUCK.

I also reduced the price of the eBook (same book, just in Adobe rather than print).

The book usually costs $12.95, and is now on sale for $7.75 (free shipping). The eBook is discounted by a few bucks as well, but honestly I hope to sell my print books to make room for new copies of the updated version!

To buy The Homeschooling Mothers Bible Study (whose basic content will remain exactly the same...the update is primarily cosmetic) visit my website AllThingsHomeschool.

Thanks for helping me make room for improvements! And please share this post with your homeschooling friends!

Lord bless you as you homeschool for His glory!

Joyfulness



Isaiah 12:3 – With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

            It is far too easy to lose our joy in the daily grind of homeschooling. At times we fool ourselves into thinking that we are really only lacking joy due to the season of life we are in. But I promise you, that is simply not true. From the first waves of morning sickness with your first child, to the moment your youngest graduates, there is no end to the seasons that can be joy stealers. Don’t succumb to this tactic of the enemy. Be willing to fight those feelings of heaviness and push into joy, drawn from Jesus at the well of salvation.

            If the joy of the Lord truly is your strength, then it only makes sense that the enemy will steal your joy if he aims to steal your strength. Once you recognize this scheme, be sure to take a firm stand against it. Your joy in the Lord is a powerful weapon, a choice gift bestowed upon you by your loving Father. Use your weapon well, fight with it every single day. Be joyful always! 

            Awaken with a thankful, joyful heart. Reset your attitude to one of joy as many times as you need to throughout the day. Keep a joyful journal and document things that bring you a smile. Choose to smile rather than to scowl. Be joyful, and watch the enemy lose ground in your life. 

            I will say it again, be joyful always. Be joyful today.


            Stay close to Jesus today ~ He is the source of all strength and all joy.

All Things Homeschool ~ 180 Devotions for Homeschooling Mothers

 
 
 
 
I am so very happy to announce the release of my new book All Things Homeschool ~ 180  Devotions for Homeschooling Mothers, now available at Amazon.
 
 
The book is written for homeschooling women, and contains devotions spanning 36 weeks, which is hopefully enough to last the length of a typical homeschool year.
 
It is currently available as a softcover and will be available for Kindle within the next few days.
 
 
My prayer is that this book will be a source of Biblical encouragement to homeschooling women everywhere, for they truly live the life of all things homeschool.
 
Lord bless you today as you homeschool for His glory!
