Welcome to Grace Reminders, my little corner of the online universe. I want to see, name, and celebrate the graces in the everyday and help you do the same. I seek to do that here in two ways.
I write about the reminders of grace in my everyday and what I’m learning about embracing them.
Right now my typical days involve changing diapers, making peanut butter sandwiches, grocery shopping, singing silly songs with silly faces, practicing saying “peaz” (please!), reading lots and lots of board books, and usually sneaking in some mommy reading time too – many, many reminders of grace!
So you’ll find posts on motherhood, homemaking, early education, and other things on my mind.
I write to reflect now, remember later, and hopefully encourage you! This blog is an outlet to help me set aside time to write in these busy, exhausting, beautiful, hard, eternity-preparing days of mommyhood.
“Only one life, yes only one,
Now let me say,”Thy will be done”;
And when at last I’ll hear the call,
I know I’ll say “twas worth it all”;
Only one life,’twill soon be past,
Only what’s done for Christ will last.”
– C.T. Studd
Education beckons both the teacher and the student to participate in a grand story of God’s grace towards His creation. Every corner of our world is saturated in evidences of grace and the best education leads the student to see those graces and hopefully marvel at the Giver of them.
Learning gives the student countless reminders of grace!
I also believe education is always a team effort. Whether you are homeschooling or have enrolled your child in school, as a parent you’re looking for the best resources to enrich your child’s education.
More About Me:
I’m married to my best friend, mommy to my favorite little girl in the world, and thankful to be living life next to them. I love traveling, reading, attempting occasional DIY projects, experimenting in the kitchen (especially eggless baking), and spending quiet evenings at home.
I grew up in Colorado as the oldest of six children and was homeschooled all the way from Kindergarten through 12th grade.
After high school graduation I moved to Northern Virginia to attend Patrick Henry College where I earned a B.A. in Government. While there I competed in moot court, mock trial, debate, and Model UN. During my junior year I met my now husband, Micah, on the debate team. We got to know each other on weekend trips to tournaments and ended up as debate partners for our last year of competition. We got married three weeks after graduation and have made our home since then in the Washington DC area.
