Purposeful Links #112

Chive Butter Chicken, Christians and the Arts,

Here are this week’s purposeful links:

  • I made this Chive Butter Chicken last week and it was a huge hit with the whole family. It was super simple to make! We had roasted veggies with it, and it’s definitely a new favorite meal!
  • This post makes some great points, although we’re still a bit more structured than she seems to be: Why the School-At-Home-Room Drives Me Crazy. I did find pretty quickly when I began homeschooling that a separate “school room” was not a good for for us. If you homeschool, where do you fall on the spectrum? Are you a structured “school at home” family, unschoolers, or somewhere in between?

Have a wonderful  weekend! 🙂

 

Purposeful Links #111

The amazing properties of breastmilk, Crockpot Butter Chicken, the problem of rest, and more in this week's edition of Purposeful Links.

Here are this week’s purposeful links:

  • We love Crockpot Butter Chicken. There are multiple variations out there, but this one is closest to how I make it.

Have a wonderful  weekend! 🙂

 

Purposeful Links #110

Yoga for healing chronic illness, the dangers of our youth-driven culture, and more in this week's edition of Purposeful Links.

Here are this week’s purposeful links:

  • I’m fully convinced of the benefits of yoga (as a physical exercise and not incorporating the spiritual aspects that are sometimes included) since I’ve been regularly doing Jen Hoffman’s Healthy Moving classes. This information about yoga for healing chronic illness sounds very interesting!
  • I’m trying Life of Fred for the first time with a couple of my kids this year. Right after I ordered, I stumbled on to this article: What’s so great about Life of Fred? Have you ever tried it? What do you use for math?

Have a wonderful  weekend! 🙂

 

Purposeful Links #109

The importance of your psoas muscle, bacon recipes, why homeschoolers will never truly be socialized, & more in this week's edition of Purposeful Links.

Here are this week’s purposeful links:

  • Although this article leans a little too far toward the “New Age” side, it has excellent info on the psoas muscle and how critically important it is to our health: both mental and physical. I never knew anything about this until I started taking Jen Hoffman’s Healthy Moving classes, where she emphasizes how important our psoas is. It’s amazing how our bodies and brains are connected!

Have a wonderful  weekend! 🙂

 

Purposeful Links #108: Back to Homeschool Edition!

This week's edition of Purposeful Links focuses on my favorite homeschool related resources and links, in honor of the new school year!

I procrastinated all summer, so now I’m in the throes of planning for our homeschool year! Since I’m immersed in lesson planning and researching curriculum and teaching methods, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite homeschool related links and resources this week!

So, here are this week’s purposeful links, “homeschool style”:

  • Homeschooling in high school is intimidating! I can’t begin to tell you how much help and encouragement I’ve gotten from Lee Binz at The Home Scholar! Her website and Facebook page are a wealth of information, and her little Coffee Break books have been lifesavers to me as I navigate these waters!
  • For thorough reviews of curriculum and lots of other great info, you can’t beat Schoolhouse Review Crew! I love being a part of this group.

What are some of your favorite homeschool related links and resources? 🙂
