Since I've been thinking about reflecting, this article from Behemoth (a magazine from Christianity Today) was so appropriate and encouraging. it talks about P53, what they call the Pondering Protein. It is fascinating and quickly puts you in awe of God.

The Lord seems to be leading us to start homeschooling our kiddos. Right now our two oldest go to a Christian Classical school which we absolutely LOVE, but as we look to our future, we need the flexibility of homeschooling (Not to mention the cost of having 5 in private school). We will be doing Classical Conversations but I was looking for something to supplement as a way to keep God's global mission before our kids and I came across these great resources. Enjoy.
Table Topics are cute little boxes full of questions on various topics. I have 3 different Table Topic boxes that I use regularly. They are great for having people over and for holidays but mostly I use them for ministry events. I just put them in the center of the table at a retreat or use them as a connecting question at Bible study where each person picks one card to answer. Here's the link to check them out. And just a heads up, in one of our boxes (the spiritual box which I think they discontinued) I went through and pulled out a couple of the cards because I didn't like the question.

The Traveling Team
They are a small team who travels across the U.S. to speak to college students about God's heart for the world. It is free to bring them in to talk to your group, you just need to house and feed them. They are phenomenal!

I love this site that helps foster a heart for the world to know Jesus. They have videos and activities that kids love.
Seeds Family Worship
They put Scripture to music. The whole family loves these catchy songs. They also have some other music and discipleship resources on their site.
This is a free app for phones that enables you to save pdf's on your phone. It functions much like a kindle in creating a little library of pdfs. Just go to your app store and search "ibooks" and download. Then whenever you see something online (that you're looking at on your phone), click it and it and you'll be asked how you want to open the file and the option "iBooks" will open. Click it and it will automatically be saved in your pdf's library

This book is what I think is the very best book on heaven. It's called, if you could believe it, Heaven. Randy Alcorn uses Scripture to piece together a picture of what heaven will be like. I. LOVE. It. It's so visionary and motivating to glorify God with all you have now looking forward to them.
