  1. Prayers for hope, peace and comfort. I'm so sorry that you are dealing with all this.
  2. I've seen this before, but I feel kind of icked out with the thought of making food in the same container that I'm sterilizing masks. Obviously, you would clean between uses, but as a self-professing germaphobe, I don't know if I could do it. I would definitely need a separate Instant Pot just for mask sterilization.
  3. Do you mind sharing how you decontaminate them? Thanks!
  4. You can look into the SCD diet. https://healthygut.com/about-the-scd-diet/
  5. After futile attempts with other supplements, my daughter's iron levels only stabalized after she started taking dessicated liver capsules. Due to multiple health concerns and allergies, she started off just with taking one capsule a day, and now she takes several a day. It took some time to repair the deficit (several months to a year), but now she is almost at optimal levels and she has energy, and no more dark circles under her eyes and listlessness. Im so thankful. I would recommend the Coorganic or Radiant Life brand.
  6. We've used Mr. D for Pre-Algebra through Pre-Calc using the asynchronous classes. From the other math curriculum we've used, Mr. D is definitely more rigorous than Teaching Textbooks or Math U See, but less rigorous than Derek Owens. It's kind of middle of the road. He always starts off the first few lessons of every year with the basics, but it definitely ramps up. I feel my kids have been prepared for their ACT and were able to place into college level math as sophomores and juniors in highschool.
  7. I am proudly a believer in YEC, yet it is a non issue for me in matters of "salvation". I find it interesting that most people consider YEC to completely eschew science in favor of faith, as if YEC has no scientific basis or evidence. To me there is enough scientific evidence to support a YEC viewpoint. The science supports my faith.
  8. Simply Mama Cooks has a blog, Youtube channel and just released her first cookbook. Her food is so, so good. And she explains her recipes very well. She has a Mexican American background and her husband is Korean, so many of her recipes are from both heritages. https://www.simplymamacooks.com/
  9. Golden Winter Soup is our family's favorite for many years. It is half butternut squash and half potato leek soup. We also don't normally put the half and half in the soup, and it's still nice and creamy. We've also never made the toast things that are part of the recipe, but I'm sure it would be good. https://www.myrecipes.com/recipe/golden-winter-soup
  10. I'm watching Never Have I Ever right now. It's produced by Mindy Kaling, and is just the right mix of smart and funny. I recommend Greenleaf, produced by Oprah Winfrey. Really enjoyed Living with Yourself, which is only one season. Hoping that a second season will be up soon.
  11. https://www.amazon.com/Speeches-Native-Americans-Thrift-Editions/dp/0486411222#:~:text=Other memorable orations include Powhatan's,)%3B Chief Joseph's "I will This book isn't a biography, but a compilation of great speeches by Native Americans. There is a short blurb about each one. I think that each speech gives a remarkable insight into the life of who's speaking. We used this book in conjunction with the Dover coloring book of Great Native Americans, which also gives a short biography of each person. https://store.doverpublications.com/0486296075.html

  13. When I was in my late teens, early twenties I had a toxic relationship that turned into a disaster of a marriage. When we were dating, I presented on the outside like everything was perfect, that he was the perfect guy for me. He was always polite as well. On the inside, I pushed aside doubts and reasoned through so many red flags. My family and friends never said a word, but I came to find out after my divorce that every single one of my close friends and family did not like him and had a bad gut feeling about him. There was nothing specific that they could point to, just that something
  14. Wow! Congratulations on a job well done!
  15. Guesthollow is awesome! Tons of great books, videos, workbook, and more. You really have to pick and choose from the smorgasbord of materials unless you want to spend hours a day doing history. https://www.guesthollow.com/homeschool/curriculum.html#history
