My passion is that our children would be learning the Word of God! My gift is music.
So as I've been raising my own children, the Lord has often inspired a tune to go with a Scripture passage. When I became a home schooling mom, I thought, "since we need to practice our handwriting skills on a regular basis, and since I have children of different grade levels...let's all practice together while listening to the verses being sung."
This has been a great way to start the school day. And it has become a pleasant part of the morning - right after breakfast...We clear the table of dishes and set out the colored pencils and turn on the music. My 2 older children practice their cursive, while my 10 year old prefers the D'Nealian (manuscript) style as a transition from print to cursive, and my 8 year old happily prints. I usually do the breakfast dishes and sing along in the back ground.
My desire is to share this opportunity with other moms, dads and teachers who would be blessed.
