  1. Great! Thank you!! I think my biggest concern is food. I do all the planning/cooking right now and I have to admit that it's already very stressful for me. My husband is planning to step up and help out more but I just don't know how it's all going to work.
  2. I have retail experience. Before I became an at-home mom I was an assistant manager at a home decorating store. So I'm looking for work along that line. I'm wondering if bosses are generally okay hiring homeschool moms who want nights and weekends.
  3. It has become necessary for me to work part time to make ends meet and I'm currently looking for a job. Are there any moms here who work outside the home and homeschool?
  4. My girls would have loved them! My oldest daughter has requested cheesecake a few times for her birthday - the first time was when she was 7 or 8. But we all are big cheesecake lovers. I joke that that's how I won my husband. I made him a cheesecake when we were dating and he was mine from then on! :lol: The cherry cake sounds lovely! Thank you for sharing the recipe.
  5. I'm an Old(er) Earth Creationist and I don't believe in evolution. I believe that I actually take the bible more literally than YEC. My belief system is called The Gap or Ruin-Reconstruction. Here is an article that explains it: http://kjvbible.org/gap_theory.html, and another one that is also important: http://kjvbible.org/satan.html In a nutshell, the belief is that there was a gap of time between Genesis 1 when God created the heaven and the earth, and Genesis 2. The 7 days are 7 literal days. There are many, many reasons why I believe the Gap to be the truth, but one of the biggest clinchers for me is found in the following two verses: Gen 1:2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. Isa 45:18 For thus saith the LORD that created the heavens; God himself that formed the earth and made it; he hath established it, he created it not in vain, he formed it to be inhabited: Those phrase "without form" and the word "vain" are translated from the same Hebrew word - tôhû. In Genesis 2 we find the earth in a state that God did not create it in. ETA: I don't believe that this is a salvation issue.
  6. Callanetics (the 80's 10 in 10 one, which is cheesy but SO effective) and T-Tapp. My personal favorite from T-Tapp is Ladybug, but as it's more advanced I think you have to have purchased the Basic first.
  7. I voted "other". I am old earth, but believe the 6 days are literal 24 hour days. I believe in a gap of time between Gen 1:1 and 1:2. It's sometimes referred to as the Ruin/Reconstruction theory.
  8. This thread has been such an encouragement to me!! Thank you, Adrienne, for posting it, and thank you Lori and Jann for your replies. I'm going to print this! My oldest will be 15 soon. She *is* behind, especially in math, but we are finally making progress! Do I need to think about starting a transcript now or is that something that I do when she is 18 and I just look back over what we've done?
  9. We use Taste of The Wild for our dog that we buy at a feed store. It's totally grain free and is a 5-star food at dog food advisor. We pay 27.50 for a 15 lb bag, which lasts us about 3 months. They have a 30 lb bag which is a better deal in the long run. http://tasteofthewildpetfood.com/ We first bought the venison and bison, this time we got salmon. If I had to buy grocery store food I think I'd go with Iams.
  10. Gifted Hands: the Ben Carson Story. - excellent movie!! https://movies.netflix.com/WiMovie/Gifted_Hands_The_Ben_Carson_Story/70114497?locale=en-US
  11. Thank you SO much for this tip! I never thought to freeze the batter. What a great idea!
  12. I believe that all those who died before Christ came who believed in God went to what some call "Abraham's Bosom", which is a holding place of sorts but is not actually Hell. When Jesus died he went there, preached to them (1 Peter 3:19) and gathered all those who were His. This understanding comes from Luke 16:19-31
  13. I have a 20-cup Aroma rice cooker that I bought at Walmart that I use to make many variations of white rice, but the brown rice feature has not produced acceptable results. I've started using Alton Brown's baked brown rice recipe and it turns out fabulous - but the downside is that it uses the oven for an hour.
  14. I use it to take my coconut oil. Ritz cracker, nutella, cold coconut oil. YUM!!! It's also delicious on a warm fresh flour tortilla.
