Family


by Julie Branstetter, Th.B. Welcome to my family blog. I have been a 'stay at home mom' from the time I gave birth to my first daughter in 2002. I started homeschooling in 2013. I am a Christian mom and often find much of my encouragement through my faith. My writing is inspired by Scripture. Then there are the things that we ladies learn from experience. Once you've been married with children for a number of years you pick up a few nuggets of wisdom. I am so thankful for the help I have gained from other parents and couples over the years. I hope these articles will also enlighten and encourage you in the same way. Guest posting is always welcomed.

The girls went for a bike ride with my husband, Mike, this evening.  They do this just about everyday.  We use to go as a family everyday but I haven't been able to go due to my pregnancy and now we are waiting for Jakob to be old enough to ride in the buggy.  I look forward to riding as a family again.  I am missing our long bike rides.  When they came back the girls had a handful of sunflowers they picked for me.  There are several tobacco fields around here with those lovely weeds g...

The Sound of Abortion

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Wednesday, September 3, 2014, In : Love & Marriage 
This is not graphic. Don't be afraid to watch it, it is NOT the sound of a real abortion. I would not post something like that. It is an audible way to realize the volume (in numbers) of abortion deaths compared the number of deaths we have had in America's many wars.

MARRIAGE; IT'S 100/0.

Posted by Julie Branstetter on Tuesday, May 22, 2012, In : Love & Marriage 
One of the things I love about marriage is having my best friend always by my side.  Even during those times when we aggravate one another we still wouldn't ever have it any other way.  Maybe we are an odd couple but we find it difficult to be away from each other for even a few hours and we've been together in that fashion for going on 13 years.  From the time we first started dating we just knew we wanted to always be together.  There are very infrequent times when my husband will have to w...
