Our 24 family Ways

  A few years ago when I started researching home-schooling I discovered the Clarkson family.  They have a ministry for Educating the Wholehearted Child.  I just love their materials!  I ordered the book Our 24 Family Ways, which is a series of devotions based around their 24 ways in which to instill Christian values in their children and family.
 Well, we used the book for awhile, then put it away for awhile.  We strive to have a devotion after/during dinner. Lately we have been using Meal Time Moments.  Tonight I got Our 24 Family Ways out.  I remembered they had a Way centered around choosing to be gracious even when we don't feel like it. Lately in our family this is something we have struggled with, therefore we started here.  The first lesson was great! There are 4 more to follow.  Sophie is our accountability girl, she makes sure we continue our devotions, I love that about her.  Davis had some very great points tonight, emphasizing that one who is wise is also mature.  The first lesson happened to emphasize worldly wisdom verses Godly wisdom.
  So, as I mentioned above the topic of home-schooling. We will be home-schooling Sophie in the fall.  One might ask... but why? There are many reasons...that will be in another post.  We are excited for the fall! More on that to come.  Davis will not be home-schooled, he is in no way interested at this point.
  If you are interested in the Clarkson's materials I believe you have to purchase them online or order them through Mardels.
  Have a blessed day!!!
