Gifts from God: Help along the Journey

A good allegory of the Christian struggle and a good lesson for my family's particular place in life's journey, Hind's Feet on High Places, by Hannah Hurnard.

A blessed saint to inspire my faith. You can listen to the book here and find a literature lesson to go with this book here.

Hope for peace in my spirit, from St. Seraphim of Sarov, who encourages us to labor to acquire the peace of the Holy Spirit.

Gifts from God

* students doing what I ask them to do, without bad attitudes

* good weekend with 16 students on the big yellow bus for a Speech Tournament

* house blessings!

* voice mail from little 3 year old and 7 year old, "have a good day Mamma - we love you!"

* unexplainable peace, the "peace that passes all understanding, that shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
