Where I am Supposed to Be

Where I am Supposed to Be

Where I Am Supposed to Be - Modern Momma Musings
Last night was the first meeting of our newest group at church. A group for the women of our parish. As I prepared for the first meeting, I was nervous and excited all at once.

Starting a group is definitely out of my comfort zone, but I kept feeling called to do more within the church. Everything kept pointing towards a women’s group.

As I prayed before entering the church, I realized that if God put this idea in my head and kept prodding (because yes it took a bit of prodding to get me to agree), then he knows this is what I need to be doing. He put me here for a reason, this is where I am supposed to be.

I needed to stop living in fear and anxiety of the moments that take me out of my comfort zone and start jumping in knowing that God will lead me and He is in control.

Audio Adventure’s Done Right – Captain Bayley’s Heir Review

Audio Adventure’s Done Right – Captain Bayley’s Heir Review

Long drives. Quiet time. Just because. These are only a few times we use audio books. Sometimes, even a classic book, can be easier to understand when read via audio book.

Heirloom Audio Productions - Captain Baileys Heir - review - Modern Momma Musings

In addition to books, you can use podcasts and audio adventures. Our favorite line of audio adventures is definitely the Heirloom Audio Productions adventures. We have enjoyed many of them already (you can read our reviews here) and we just had the opportunity to listen to their newest addition Captain Bayley’s Heir.

Bringing Life to the Bible with a Book – Imagine. . .The Great Flood by Matt Koceich Review

Bringing Life to the Bible with a Book –  Imagine. . .The Great Flood by Matt Koceich Review

As a Charlotte Mason homeschooler, I have seen first hand the way a book can take my children to another world. There is nothing like getting lost in a book and if it has a connection to history or the bible that makes it even sweeter. Barbour Publishing has taken the bible and created a new series that takes your children on an adventure.

Taking a Step Back From Social Media

It seems weird in today’s society to be checking yourself out of social media. I have always enjoyed seeing friends’ pictures and updates, and until the last year, I never had any trouble. But over the last year, I feel like it has been taking priority over other things I should be doing and has been causing a bit to much anxiety in my life.

Looking Closer at the Great Inventors with the A Journey Through Learning – Review

Looking Closer at the Great Inventors with the A Journey Through Learning – Review

We’ve been taking learning a step further with lapbooks lately. It’s been a good way for my older two kiddos (8 and 7) to learn to do research and find the facts. While lapbooking is not a normal thing for our Charlotte Mason environment, I don’t mind adding in a bit of research when they are having fun doing it as well. We had the opportunity to use the The Greatest Inventors lapbook from A Journey Through Learning Lapbooks and it was a great chance to dig a little deeper into those great inventors from history.

Family Chores – Everyday Homemaking Review

Family Chores – Everyday Homemaking Review

We have a very active family. Between homeschooling, gymnastics, baseball and all of the other activities mixed in, we seem to be constantly busy. If cleaning the house was a chore only I could do, our house would be perpetually dirty. There are just not enough hours in the day.

Everyday Homemaking - Modern Momma Musings

We’ve changed the chore schedule many times to try and get a good fit and I think this may be continually changing as we grow in duties and expectations. I am always looking for a better way or a different idea and Everyday Homemaking has published a book,The Everyday Family Chore System, that may be just what we needed to jump start the fall.
