Recovering a Lost Art

Several years ago, my mom came to visit my family. Since she lives 1,200 miles away and she is getting up in years, we do not get to see her often. My mom was older when she had me—the last of four kids. My older sister was sixteen when I was born. My mother has […]

Recovering a Lost Art - By Becky McMoil

Back in the fall, Jackie Brown approached me about appearing on her television show, It’s Up to You!   I never get tired of sharing about the privilege and amazing opportunity of working alongside parents and students in the Artios Academies programs across the country.  It’s exciting to see how God encourages others by hearing my journey of homeschooling, working from home, and desiring to raise kids who are “artios.”  My “plans” did not always work out but God had given us a vision and a mission and that has stayed constant.  It is important to remember to set your goals, your mission in concrete, but your plans in sand.

Bearing Unnecessary Burdens

During a recent weekend, my girls accompanied me on a series of errands. Our last stop was the produce market where I picked up several bags of fresh fruits and vegetables. Since there were no available grocery carts, each of us had to carry at least one bag. Before heading over to the cashier, I […]

Fly, Butterfly, Fly!

When the little package arrived in the mailbox that sunny afternoon in May, I was not sure what to expect inside. My two daughters were busy playing in the backyard, so I was alone when I cut open the cardboard box and found the five tiny caterpillars inside a little cup. It was just what […]
