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.

I believe in offering rewards for good behavior to children.  I believe they should be small rewards with short term goals in mind.  For example for a week of good behavio...

These Are The Days

THESE ARE THE DAYS

There is one thing I am learning now that my children have started staying home with me and are being home schooled.  After having been indoors for weeks because of on again and off again snow storms I have seen comments by other parents that are all too familiar to the woman I once was and it only caught my attention because I realize I no longer feel this way.  I no longer look forward to the day that my kids will get out from under my skin and go back to school....
