Welcome to our Adventures in Home Schooling! We follow the Charlotte Mason philosophy of education fairly closely, with my own ideas and creations fitting in here and there. We love home education for our family and hope that as you join us now and again you will see a real family striving to serve the Lord and love each other along the way!
"Thought breeds thought; children familiar with great thoughts take as naturally to thinking for themselves as the well-nourished body takes to growing; and we must bear in mind that growth, physical, intellectual, moral, spiritual, is the sole end of education." ~ Charlotte Mason

Book Sharing Monday: The Power of a Praying Nation
I'll likely read parts of the actual chapter for the kids and I in the morning and then follow it up with the prayer at the end of the chapters. We'll cycle through it for the remainder of the year. We will probably need to modify parts as it is written from an American perspective.
The idea came to me when I was thinking about how to utilize the Canadian Political Map I placed on our table top under some heavy gauge plastic. We have been using it during our history and geography lessons. I had a World Map on the table top when we were doing an introduction to World History. For that map we had collected missionary cards and placed them under the plastic with the map. We then marked off on the World Map where they were serving and prayed for the missionaries. For this one we will pray for our Country, our leaders, law enforcement, our schools and so forth. We got our book today so we'll be starting in on that come morning devotions! :)
The book and map! This is where we spend our time in the morning. Great visual reminder!
