Betcha’ Can’t Eat Just One (Lays Potato Chips)
Assignment: Tell us about something that you can’t get enough of and what scripture(s) in the Bible you cannot tear yourself away from.
Ohh.. There are so many things I can’t get enough of during the short hours of each given day..
First, I need to read ICor13 everday. I need a constant reminder of the true definition of love each morning. Especially the patience part. And sometimes I require His food more frequently than just once a day . In another words, this apparently is the one of the reminders God thinks I need to ponder and chew on. Obviously, it hasn’t completely sunk in my heart yet.
Second, I can not get enough books. I love, love, love books. I love books that will aid me in becoming the woman God designed me to become. I have a butt load of reading material. (don’t tell my boys I used the “B” word) I don’t read much fiction, but when I do ~ I love to indulge into a Janette Oke book. Always a good, easy and inspirational read. Check out some of my reads here and here.
Third, this is proabaly my favorite chip of them all… I love to gain knowledge, wisdom, and understanding from the Lord in discovering curriculum and lessons in teaching my children to reason from a biblical worldview. I have learned so much myself and believe God has directed me to use the Principle Approach to teach my children everyday. This is the one area that I truly acted out of obedience. And a tough one ~ I don’t like change especially when something is going so well… We were using the Charlotte Mason approach and I was completly at ease with how our school day agenda sailed along each day. I still do love the Charlotte Mason approach and still implement several of her suggested methods and ideas. Now, I can’t get enough knowledge of the principle approach. However, this requires much study time for me. But I consider it a gift that God has given me that will truly be a blessing to my children and the future generation to come. It has also taught me to reason from God’s view in every area of my life too. I find myself often asking, “How does God think about this?” The Principle Approach is a life long learning approach that I will continue to pursue for at least 16 more years until my youngest graduates.
