Calibrate – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 18

Intercede – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 11

I did not feel like praying this morning. I’m right smack in the middle of writing a 21 day prayer challenge, and the words just wouldn’t come as I tried to pray. Even with a prayer guide in front of… Continue Reading →
