It’s A Family Business

by

Aside from homeschooling and being full-time at home, two major tasks occupy my day. One is Inspirited Mom, my platform for sharing our journey as a family, as a homeschooling mom and a follower of Christ. The other one is Pickings, our small family business, which my husband and I started in 2012. Since we […] Read more…

Why My Daughter Wants to be on Facebook

by

“Mama, can I have a Facebook account?” was the question asked by our daughter recently. When I inquired about her sudden interest with this social media platform, she never really answered my question. She added that she wants to share an account with her older brother. That night after dinner, I told my husband about […] Read more…

Run For Your Life

by

The last quarter of 2014 was not good for my body. I had too much on my plate: Holiday orders, GLC classes and projects, High school batch reunion preparation, ministry work, homeschool and family life. The busyness took a toll on my back, my lower back to be specific. And of course I was eating […] Read more…

by

Being a stay-at-home/homeschooling mom has its perks.  I get to spend more time with the kids and we learn things together.  But I admit that there are times when I want to be by myself doing what I love to do: reading, writing, crocheting and other “me stuff.”  I can do all these in the bedroom […] Read more…

When God Says Stop

by
Coby's "Earthquake Scene" for Science. Notice the police car and the ambulance :)

Have you ever experienced something like this: You are about to do or say something then you feel this strong urge to just stop?  You don’t know what it is or who is it that’s preventing you from taking the next step.  Some say it’s your conscience, a “higher power” or for the believers, it’s […] Read more…

Help, I Have a Teenager at Home! Part 2

by

So, the Raising Up Responsible Teenagers Parenting Seminar by Pastor Clem Guillermo concluded last Saturday, January 31. Since this was a project of me and my husband, we were not able to sit through the entire talk. Despite being occupied with administrative duties that morning, I was able to get as much learning as I […] Read more…

I Have a Teenager at Home!

by

I was a teenager in the 80’s. My concerns then were stiffening my hair with Aquanet Hairspray, listening to Janet Jackson’s songs on my Sony Walkman and reading about Craig and Darcy in my Sweet Dreams pocket books. My parents, particularly my mother, didn’t have a hard time disciplining or raising me and my younger brother… Oh, […] Read more…

Thank You Teacher!

by

Last Sunday, the teachers and kids of NextGen Ministry of CCF Alabang capped the year with a short program called “Christmas Carol”.  Each grade level sang a Christmas song to the delight of the audience. Each class wore coordinating colors of green, red and white. As usual, the preschoolers stole the show as they danced, unmindful of choreography […] Read more…

On the sixth year of my family’s pilgrimage to the Manila International Book Fair, we not only bought quality books and magazines but inexpensive homeschool finds as well. We didn’t want to miss this year’s event so we had to tightly hold on to our wallets and close our eyes on some items. As we […] Read more…
