Hands Full of Blessings! 

Sharing Some of My Blessings With You.

The Ants Go Marching

The Ants Go Marching

The next Nursery Rhyme on the blog is actually more of a well-known kid’s song- The Ants Go Marching. What’s interesting about ants is that they are small, and alone they seem weak. But they don’t live alone. They live in colonies…with thousands of other ants. In that...

Three Blind Mice

Three Blind Mice

Today on the blog is Three Blind Mice. I already know what you’re thinking- Renee, why? Well, rest assured, I thought the exact same thing. Why was this placed on my heart? Then I read the Nursery Rhyme. Three blind mice. Three blind mice.See how they run. See how...

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Goldilocks and the Three Bears

Goldilocks and the Three Bears The next story on the blog is Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Everyone knows the story of the curious little girl taking a walk in the woods when she comes upon a house… When no one answers the door, Goldilocks walks straight in. On the...

Humpty Dumpty

Humpty Dumpty

Up next on Christian Parallels in Nursery Rhymes is Humpty Dumpty. Now before we begin, let’s all say the nursery rhyme together… Ok, maybe not… that’s the teacher in me coming out… But here is the rhyme for those of you who were on board and still reading. Humpty...

Little Red Riding Hood

Little Red Riding Hood

My kids love watching a YouTube channel called “Pancake Manor.” The creators are a couple in Canada who remake/remix nursery rhymes making them upbeat, creative, and fun. They do an awesome job, really! But with my kids of all ages 10-1 loving these music videos, the...

Hiding… Doubting…

Hiding… Doubting…

Sometimes my toddler is the cutest. A few days ago, he suckered me into playing Hide and Seek, or Peek-a-Boo, or sometime like that. Basically, he covered his head with his blankie, and I said, “Oh, where is Isaiah?” He giggled the most adorable laugh, and then ripped...

Unless

Unless

As a family with six kids, people are always making comments about our large family. I used to get frustrated about it. But as I have shared before, I have learned that my attitude and response completely direct the conversation. “Yep, my hands are full of blessings.”...

Follow the Leader

Follow the Leader

Yesterday I decided to play “Follow the Leader” with my children. It was fun (at first) as I led and they imitated me skipping, running backwards, twirling, and walking around our yard. Then my oldest jumped in front. I let him lead. He led me straight to the slide to...

Skimming

Skimming

I have a child who doesn’t like to read. Well as a homeschooler, he is expected to read… a lot… and often. Earlier, I asked him to read a part of his Social Studies book. After he read it and put it away, I asked him what it was about. “Economics.” Ok what about...

I’ll Be Honest- I Forget

I’ll Be Honest- I Forget

September 11, 2001. I was a self-centered junior in high school frantically trying to recreate the earth I made for art class but lost. After destroying my locker to no avail, I came back to art class with a new piece of black construction paper, pastels, and a...

Diet and Exercise

Diet and Exercise

Diet and exercise. I’ve started this blog many times, but I have never been able to actually complete it. I realize now, that is because it will never be complete. This is a rollercoaster of a journey. If someone would have told me when I was 17, my biggest struggle...

Homeschooling with Littles

Homeschooling with Littles

It was suggested that I write a blog about how to homeschool with littles at home. My immediate response was, “I wish I knew.” However, many people have told me I seem to have a good handle on it, so here it goes. If you are on the fence about homeschooling and are...

Join in Creation’s Song

Join in Creation’s Song

Last week I had the opportunity to be a leader on our church’s Youth Group Trip. I went to this trip expecting to hear from God and expecting to see Him move. It did not disappoint. However, the messages I got from this trip were not the messages I expected to hear....

Painting with Twigs

Painting with Twigs

Well, I’m not sure if I’m an awesome mom or crazy. While playing outside one of my children was collecting twigs. Another said, “Hey we could paint with these! Mom, can we paint with twigs?” “Sure!” I said pulling out the paints and blank papers. Well, guess what? The...

Coffee and Jesus

Coffee and Jesus

This morning I made my coffee, I smiled at my coffee mug that was given to me this Christmas. “All I need today is a little bit of Coffee & a whole lot of Jesus.” So true. But is it backwards? I mean really. I’m a mom of six. I teach kids in China online starting...

A Dream Come True

A Dream Come True

This moment… this moment, right here, is something I have been dreaming about for almost three years. But let me tell you a secret… 3 ½ years ago, it wasn’t even on my bucket list. This is 100% a dream God put on my heart, and He gave me the super-human strength to...

The Christmas Puzzle

The Christmas Puzzle

As I was making dinner, my three-year-old wanted some help with a puzzle. Now, this is a new puzzle of the Baby Jesus. (We are very blessed with people in our lives who help point our children to Jesus during a protentional very secular holiday.) Anyways, she was...

Parents: A Glimpse of God

Parents: A Glimpse of God

My kids were playing outside as a storm rolled in. I saw a flash and heard a boom. So, I called them inside. My youngest daughter was apparently really scared when I called them in. I gave her a hug, told her she was safe, and sent her to play with her siblings. About...
