What promises are you claiming today?  Sometimes I think we forget that God have us so many promises and He is just waiting for us to claim them. 🙌🏻
It’s like winning money and then never claiming what you won😳
You wouldn’t do it with money so don’t do it with the things that surpass anything money can buy!

What does a girl eat for #breakfast the day after finishing the biggest challenge she has ever taken on? 
The same thing she ate yesterday! 😂

This was never meant to be 80 days and done. I want to live a #healthylifestyle, and this program solidified so many great #healthyhabits in my life. 
I may ease up on my timed nutrition this week to allow for some flexibility, by I will absolutely stay within my colors. Why would I throw out all my hard work now?? Round 2 starts on Monday! Are you coming with me? .

|Tiff| {let them be little}
This is what lead me to homeschool. The desire that my children had sufficient time to be kids. 🌱
Time for imaginative, unstructured, as well as intentional play. Time in regards to hours in the day, but mostly, sufficient years of their life developing a love of learning through exploration. I guard those early years fiercely; from too much structure, too many commitments, screens that inhibit imagination and expectations that go against nature. 🌱
The list of blessings this lifestyle has manifest in our lives grows each year, but this is where it began. A desire to let them be little. #HDtiff #letthembelittle #wildandfreekids

🔤Montessori Alphabet Learning🔤
🔸
➡I've been off social media a week, but, it feels like a month! So happy to be back!!😁🎉
🔸
➡There're many sets of letters #Montessori recommended, I chose this one because of how easy it would be to put small words together once learned.
➡The words are presented to be learned in sets, and taught through phonetics rather than letter names.
➡Also, all the letters are in lower case, as children encounter lower case letters more often, and as such they're introduced first.
➡These are just the basics. Will explain more as we present our activities. Woo hoo! 🎉 Super exited to start!😁
➡Will also be posting our sound baskets soon🔤.

Over the years, I heave learned to tolerate working out. It is NOT my favorite thing to do, but I LOVE the results I get from it. 
Most days, I FORCE myself to go downstairs and push play. I have yet to regret doing so when it’s over.

We typically start out our units with a story basket but you can't have a story basket about #theveryhungrycaterpillar without a very hungry caterpillar!  So far we talked about red versus green,  small/medium/large, and counted the balls in each caterpillar. What other ideas do you have for these guys?

The Views from Tri Valley School were gorgeous. So impressed with the cast of Mary Poppins-they were able to adjust and pull off the show in a different space. The workshop was well attended. I wonder when I will stop blurting out lines and singing songs? That Mary Poppins sure had some wisdom- “Govern your temper or your temper will govern you.”

Mmmm...Meatballs!!! Anyone else out there love em?? Y'all, these are full of flavor & totally healthy! I plan to make Zucchini boats with mine! 
My whole family is salivating because the house smells delicious! Feeling jazzed that I took a few minutes today to whip these beauties up and toss them in the Crock-Pot!

We spent the morning digging in the dirt at Penn Dixie Fossil Park and Nature Preserve during their Homeschool Day. We’ve been there before, but it was great to have a tour guide this time around to point out the different areas in the site, give us a little background history, and help us identify our finds. I wish we could have stayed a bit longer to see if we could uncover some trilobites, but Mr. 3 was only able to hang in there for 2.5 hours (completely understandable). Pictured here are some of the crinoids (sea lilies) we found. They’re an echinoderm related to starfish. The biggest one on the bottom is only about 0.5cm in diameter. Picture taken with my iPhone and @easy_macro #easymacro

Nothing soothes the soul like a relaxing vacation and having your cup refilled by spending time with people that make you better.... Today while traveling home, reflecting on our trip with Joel by my side, my heart is full, I feel blessed. Is this really our life? .
.
I whisper a prayer and thank the Lord for blessing me with this opportunity. For putting it into my life when I needed SAVING. When I needed something to help me get healthy and fill an emptiness I felt in my soul. .
.
And fast forward and we are on our third paid all inclusive reward trip from this opportunity. .
.
If you're over there doubting this business or doubting yourself- I'm sorry to say that you're missing out on a TRUE BLESSING. I am proof. Proof that when you have a tug at your heart and follow it with FAITH, passion, and love you will always be winning in life in the ways that matter most. 🙏🏻💕
.
.
Time is something that you can never ever get back, and I'm going to keep earning these trips every single year by paying it forward and helping others. Will you join me? .
.
YOU could be enjoying the same kind of experience and excitement, the comfort in knowing that you no longer have to stress about the extra vacation or date night money money or TIME off.  YOU could be sharing these experiences with the people you love the most. .
.
I shared pretty much EVERYTHING over the last few days on my stories for those of you who are curious can see what it's like to be a coach. But if you missed the extra details and life tips I shared, I am still sharing in my info group and share with you. SPOILER ALERT: It's pretty incredible, totally rewarding and a ton of fun! .

|Holly| Whenever someone has a child who might be younger and have a hard time sitting still for read aloud, I recommend Mr. Popper’s Penguins. This book got my three wild boys to fall in love with reading (and created a life-long love for penguins for one.) 🐧 Funny, happy, and sweet, it’s the number one reread book in our household. #HDHolly #readaloud #kidbookrecommendations

I went to bed discouraged and woke-up exhausted.  The past eleven days haven’t been the best.  The children have been sick.  One on his birthday.  Another, on the day of their bday party.
*
Our car broke down.  It has sat on the street for a week and a half undriveable.  The mechanic has been busy.  The repairman that was supposed to come fix our fence… didn’t.
*
The kids were excited to go to a friend’s birthday party today.  I woke-up too early to a tapping on my back.  Our child with special needs said he had a (terrible) headache.  Three hours later, he started to vomit.  I texted our friends that we wouldn’t be at the party.  One of our twins said, “I knew something like this would happen.” It’s been those type of days.
*
My sick child vomited his anti-seizure medicine.  I was on hold for a long time waiting to talk to the nurse.  Yes, give him the medicine again.  He vomited before I could.  Call his local pediatrician the nurse recommended.
*
It’s more stressful when this child is sick.  He now has purple rings under his eyes.  The nurse tells me to watch him for seizures, that his illness makes it harder for his body to fight them.
*
Meanwhile, I have a fence down.  A broken car.  Six other children, including a three year old.  Sometimes I want to cry.  It seems too much.
*
Then I saw this… (What you see in the pictures.) High Heels had brought in the playhouse from outside and sandwiched it right in the middle of the living room.  Baby Loves happily playing with the table and chair and play dough she set up.  His water and guitar.  He was so happy and loved and well taken care of.
*
Let’s be honest.  Our children are blessings from God Himself.  We’d give our very lives for them, but they are also a lot of work.  Today God used one of my children to encourage me.  To bring a smile to my face.  God is still on His throne.  These days will pass.  We’ll have better Aprils.  Our car and fence will get fixed, I hope! 😉

We’ll have better Aprils. Our car and fence will get fixed, I hope! 😉 * “His great love is new every morning. LORD, how faithful you are!” Lamentations 3:23(NIRV)
Perfect day chasing waterfalls with my little people and good friends.  This late Spring has really taken her time getting here but today was such a gift! Packing up and meeting friends on a hike can leave me frazzled. We’re always running late it seems. Balance has really helped me ground and calm myself before road trips.  One of my absolute faves to wear in my diffuser necklace. 
We’ve got sun-kissed cheeks and shoulders tonight. Feeling energized on the homeschool front. 🙏💦💪

The warm, woody aroma of dōTERRA Balance Grounding Blend creates a sense of calm and well-being. We perfectly blend Spruce, Ho Wood, Frankincense, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile with Fractionated Coconut Oil to offer an enticing fragrance that promotes tranquility and relaxation. Spruce, one of the oils in dōTERRA Balance, was used by Native Americans for health and spiritual reasons and is still used today to bring harmony to the mind and body. Ho Wood, Blue Tansy, and Blue Chamomile can ease anxious feelings, while Frankincense provides a grounding, balancing effect on emotions.

Homeschool is so much more than numbers and letters. We usually do some morning jobs before we begin school work. I’ve found my three year olds fold washcloths better than my 10 year old 😂🤷🏼‍♀️ What kind of chores do your kids do? .

This is our 4th time reading this in 3 days. Needless to say...they are just as eager to dig in the dirt of their own land as much as I am! I'm not going to lie, hotel life sucks. The in between selling and buying sucks. But it will be worth it in the end. Refining us. Humbling us. And giving us each more character. For those of you who have been following this new chapter, our closing date on our new home isn't official yet. Which is an annoyance and leaving a knot in my belly. But soon. Lord please soon. Happy monday!! #worldbookday

How do you Cultivate Your Relationship With Christ? Do you spend time with Him daily? Do you treat Him like a genie in a bottle? Not going to lie... sometimes I forget that He isn’t. Check out the blog today. The link is in my bio.

We took full advantage of our flexible school and work schedule this morning! We knew around noon, the three day rain would start. So we all headed out early for a morning hike. Dad would just work through the day into the evening and we would start school.after lunch. We know the value and beauty of this flexibility in our lives right now!
What wonderful morning it was! Our lungs were filled with fresh crisp air. Our ears were treated to a sweet melody of many birds chirping and singing everywhere we turned. We went on a short hike of just one mile. The two-year-old did the best with no complaining and pacing himself. 🙄 Our goal is a five mile hike by summers end. We have always been an outdoorsy family, going on walks, short hikes, and playing in creeks for hours. But now that our kids are older, we want to build stamina. They do not like to go far or do things that make them tired. They prefer to park close to a store and stop when they sweat 😂. Stamina is something we want our kids to have-to finish that trail even though you are tired, to ride the extra 50ft, and to finish what you started.

Today, we made the most of the gorgeous day & had a picnic lunch in the yard, followed by the two cutest kids ever playing football. 😍😍😍.
.
Slowing down & having fully present, intentional moments with my babies like this isn’t always an easy thing for me.  Life can get so cluttered & I don’t even necessarily mean with stuff, though that can happen too, but just with busyness & distractions (Hello, social media & smart phones! Amazing tools, but hard to keep within their boundaries at times.)
.
I know this time with my kids is fleeting, they are changing & growing so fast!  I do NOT want to be a distracted mama. These past several days I’ve made some changes to my routine & set more defined boundaries for my phone & social media & I am loving it!! I feel like I am getting way more accomplished in my biz and more importantly, being more fully present & intentional with my family❤️, all within the same 24 hours I’ve always had! 😂
.
So mama, if you’re feeling frustrated with your days, like there’s not enough time for it all, can I just encourage you? First, give yourself some grace, perfection is not the goal. Ask yourself what things need to go. See if you might try reworking your routine a bit until you find what works! It’s worth it, I promise you!

Today's Lesson: DOING YOUR BEST AND LIVING YOUR BEST LIFE. 🙌❤💯

📚STORYTIME 📚
.
.
Ayden used to struggle with the monkey bars. As much as he LOVES jumping and flipping off of things, he just couldn't get it. 😥
.
.
I would always say stuff like, "keep trying and you'll get it" (The standard parent thing to say in those instances lol) .
.
But the thing is: Sometimes in life you have to keep trying AND, while doing that, you also have to work on developing your craft. .
.
. 
Well.. Fast forward to today and....he's able to go across with ease! 🙌
.
.
.
🚫Today, we didnt have notebooks, paperwork and pencils. 🙅
.
.
.
Today we had a real experience that allowed him to see how his persistence AND his skill set that's he's developed through gymnastics, have allowed him to go across the monkey bars with ease. 🙌🙌🙌
.
.
.
💡 It was that "ah-ha" twinkle that i saw in his facial expressions that led me to want to dig a little bit deeper and REALLY explain to him what that looks like. So... .
I did that by:
.
Doing what I was already doing..... (🎶listening to cardi b while we were in the car! 😥😂🎶) .
 I turned on her song "Best life" (Tidal has the edited version! 🙌😂) and... Well .... .
.
Listen in on how I tied it all together by visiting my instastory! Its all there! 😂😎🎶
.
.
Oh and Ayden gave me that yellow flower. 🌻

10 weeks worth of glitter in my hair! I had a couple inches taken off last week and I’ve got almost an inch of grow out but this can’t happen fast enough for me. 😃Not everyone around me is supportive, but I’m done coloring it!!

College ministry #cru taught me how to #winbuildsend from my classes to workplace, to the ends of the world. THIS is the precious season when I invest to win the hearts of my children for Christ, build them up according to His purpose and send them into the world, one day at a time. Woohoo! And yikes!

There have been sooooooo many #Mondays where all I’ve wanted to do is stay in bed with the covers pulled over my head 🛌...there were countless days and weeks and even months when anxiety and depression got the best of me.
•
•
I won’t lie to you, there are still some dark hours and days, but thanks to better sleep (did you catch the #sleep webinar? Link @SarahLCook? 🤩) and other lifestyle choices I’m finally back to a place where I can feel my soul on fire again... 🔥
•
•
I remember so many prayers 🙏pleading with God to “give me my life back”... to “help me remember what joy felt like again”...
•
•
Transformation didn’t come by taking massive action like so many gurus recommend. It came in small repetitive steps... in micro changes and minuscule efforts performed over hours and days and weeks and months.
•
•
I read dozens of books📚, listened to podcasts, went to counselling, and most importantly followed the impressions that came from the Holy Spirit. 😇
•
•
I followed the impressions to clean up my diet, increase my water, start moving my body more and take time to breathe and be still. I “practiced” taking better care of myself one choice...one habit at a time.💕
•
•
I believe in the power of change and and I believe in you! 🤩Are you ready for your soul to be on fire? 🔥Stay with me! I’ve got something I’ve been cookin’ up for awhile now...more details coming soon! 
Happy Monday, y’all!
❤️Sarah

|Holly| Happy Monday! I’m SO excited because today I’m going to share some of our all-time favorite read-aloud books. My kids and I have been able to read hundreds of books together over the years (thank you, homeschool) which have become a permanent part of our family culture, and I want to share some of my favorite book recommendations. My three oldest are boys and all of today’s books recommendations are great for the boys in your life. ———————-
We discovered the Poppy books (better known as the Dimwood Forest series) quite by accident. I was at the library browsing the stacks and saw a book about a mouse named “Poppy” (my daughters name). We were already familiar with, and loved the author, Avi, so we knew we had to read it. We devoured the first book and were delighted to discover it was part of a series. (“Ragweed” is the prequel so you can read that first, but we liked starting with Poppy.) It’s a really fun series filled stories of bravery, adventure, and characters you won’t forget. —————
Do you have a favorite book series?

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment" ralph emerson

You would think as adults this wouldn't be an issue. we should accept each other as we are, as we should accept ourselves as we are!!!
.
Well personally, it sounds a lot easier than what it really is! The world has standards for us. It tries to put us into graphs, charts, and make us a statistic. Think of our kids as an example, their weight and height is based on a percentage compared to others their age. .
My kids usually fell at the low end of the spectrum for weight (like 5%). The doctors would always give me the speech of more protein, have them eat more, and scare me with the words "failure to thrive". But my daughter was happy, meeting all her mile stones, and she still had rolls, they just weren't as big as the "average" kid! They didn't look at genetics nor did they consider the fact that her daddy can't gain weight for the life of him, rather they have this number that she should be at.
.
It's really no different for us as adults. We want to be a certain height and weight, we want to dress a certain way, or have certain personality characteristics based on what we feel society says we should be at!
.
And our health can be no different!!! I want to remind you all though that health is very unique to all of us!!! Health stats on one of us make look very different than another!! .
Keep working on you!! Don't work on yourself to be "acceptable" to the world. That is not growth. Rather, work on bettering yourself for you while maintaining yourself in the process!! The world will always have suggestions for what we are not, but it's up to us if we listen to these suggestions and allow them to bring us down or if we become stronger and grow in individual ways for ourselves💪
.
 Keep your beauty AND become a better version of you!!!!

Good Morning!! Our Scripture Writing Passage for today is Philippians 4:9-13 . I have posted it below. [After you complete your journaling- click like.] If you have a few extra minutes please share your takeaway from the reading [in the comments.] Here are today's verses for you to read. 
Philippians 4:9-13 (NIV)
9 Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.
Thanks for Their Gifts
10 I rejoiced greatly in the Lord that at last you renewed your concern for me. Indeed, you were concerned, but you had no opportunity to show it. 11 I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12 I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13 I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Journal questions for further study:
1. What does this passage say?
2. What does this passage mean?
3. How does the passage apply to my life?
4. What will I apply today from this passage? #wewritetheword #wereadtheword

💁🏼‍♀️Meet Kelly Dupasquier ❤ 👂🏼hear how these products and this business changed her life: .
“I tried for years to figure out what was wrong with my skin. I cut Carbs. Sugar. Alcohol. Stress. Dairy. Tried all the cleansers and masks at the local store.
Nothing changed.
.
I finally decided I had to get serious, so I researched more. I found Rodan and Fields, and taking an educated chance, I leapt into it. I could NEVER have imagined the impact that decision would have. I am happier in my life, my marriage, my profession, a better role model to my children, and have a personal business I am extremely proud of. This changes lives." ❤️

Are you ready for great skincare? Or maybe a business that has the potential to change your life?  PM me... I'd love to help. .

"Walk with Me in holy trust, responding to My initiatives rather than trying to make things fit your plans. I died to set you free, and that includes freedom from compulsive planning. When your mind spins with a multitude of thoughts, you cannot hear My voice. A mind preoccupied with planning pays homage to the idol of control. Turn from this idolatry back to Me. Listen to Me and live abundantly!" —Jesus Calling by Sarah Young
