Some Curriculum for Charlotte Mason- style Homeschooling


I have created some homeschool resources for families that like to use written narration. These are journals in which your child may record some quotes, favorite characters, favorite scenes, favorite genres, and other thoughts that will help them remember the information and process it, give them a central place to record and keep narrations, and possibly a keepsake for the future.

Please go to my author’s page on Amazon and check out these new resources!


A Prophetic Look at What’s Happening

A Prophetic Look at What’s Happening – Faith, Hope, and Prophecy!

Prophecies for 2020

Brought to You by the Letters P, Q, and R

Many prophetic words for last year – that year we were all so anxious to put behind us – included lots of words that start with the prefix re- which means “back to the original place; again, anew, once more,”  also with a sense of “undoing,” from Old French and from Latin re- “again, back, anew, against,”

Watch this clip from Cindy Jacobs:

This aligns with the word that Lana Vawser and many others were getting in the months leading up to 2020 that we were coming into a new era. Not just a new year, or a new decade or a new millennium, but a new era.

Watch this clip from Lana Vawser:

There is definitely going to be a Reset.

Man had a Plan for a Reset, using the “Pandemic of Coronavirus” as a pretext. Klaus Schwab and WEF World Economic Forum hatched an evil plan to keep us all enslaved.

Their Plan for us is summed up in these words: “You will own nothing and be happy.”

Watch this clip:


But God also had a Plan, a Brilliant Plan!

Watch this clip from Kim Clement:


I’ll tell you more about it later in this post.

Hint: It’s a better Plan than WEF’s Plan, and it’s a better RESET, too. We will be able to own stuff.

We Are Experiencing Something Biblical


Remember the Plagues in the Bible? Well, we have had some plagues during 2020.
Talk about a Plague! Covid-19! They sure treated it like one anyway. The coronavirus has been treated like a pandemic that would kill millions of Americans. It didn’t. But they are still acting like it did.


It was created on purpose and even patented, though you’ll have a hard time getting past the Fact Checkers to verify this. I recommend finding everything you can on the virus from The Epoch Times, Dr. Judy Mikovits (find out what she reveals about Anthony Fauci too), the movie Plandemic, and any other source besides mainstream media. They will not tell the truth about anything and they censor everything that does tell the truth. Don’t trust mainstream media, whatever you do!

Prophet Tracy Cooke saw a vision of the virus being made in Wuhan, China, and told Sid Roth about it in March of 2020. He had the vision before anyone had heard of a coronavirus pandemic, a couple of months prior to this video:


The CCP and some other New World Order operatives have been planning to do this to us for a long time. They have been doing test runs like Event 201. https://centerforhealthsecurity.org/event201/

Now Chinese Communists are in charge of our elections in the US, at least some of our power grids, our state of Georgia and its politicians, and many other American politicians. Read The Epoch Times to find out more about the CCP.

Another Biblical event has been repeated in 2020.

Passover – In his book, Time to Defeat the Devil, Chuck Pierce talks about the spiritual significance of Passover. He prophesied in 2020 that we would have a Passover like the first Passover. And he was right! Not only was Israel locked up in their houses during the Passover, the whole world was in lockdown because of Covid! We were told to stay home and not leave our houses. They called it “Shelter in Place”, quarantine, and lockdown. All because of this Plague they had unleashed on us.

He wrote another book called The Passover Prophecies, and I highly recommend it if you want to know what has happened and what will happen next.

Last year and this year’s Passover are very significant prophetically. We Christians were always meant to celebrate Passover and connect it to Jesus’ sacrifice and His Blood. Chuck talks about that quite a bit in his book Time to Defeat the Devil.

Power in the Blood

I recommend reading and studying the Power in the Blood of Jesus. There are many books about it. Gary Beaton has some good videos about it on YouTube, too.

The Red Sea

Another prophetic Biblical event that seems to be repeating now is like a Red Sea crossing for the church. Robin Bullock tells us about some Plagues that have been happening and then he tells us about a time of Moses and a Red Sea moment in this clip with Elijah Streams founder, Steve Shultz.



We are experiencing another R- word that has been very unpleasant. Rebellion has raised its ugly head in many ways during 2020. Black Lives Matter, Antifa, Riots, and Trump Derangement Syndrome!

Anti-Trumpers, Never-Trumpers, Liberals – all afflicted with Trump Derangement Syndrome – can’t see what God is doing or hear what He’s saying. Many can’t see what Trump accomplished. They blame and accuse him falsely. Christians say he’s too proud and arrogant and crude and rude. They don’t like his tweets. They say he lost the elections because God warned him to humble himself, and he refused to. Or they say he’s too immoral and has too many wives and too terrible a past. Or they say that Christians didn’t do their job well enough. They say we didn’t repent or intercede enough. Or that we worshipped Trump and put him in the place of God, so God wouldn’t let him win the election. Then many demanded that the prophets who said that Trump would win the 2020 election apologize for being wrong!
That’s Ridiculous! He did win! It’s obvious that the election was stolen. It’s obvious that he won by a landslide. There was massive fraud. This is just crazy!

God’s Plan is coming to pass!

Patriots and Prophets and Patriotic Christians comingle –

There will be a tremendous harvest of souls into the Kingdom. Many of the Patriots are good-hearted, righteous people who are not yet in the Kingdom. They will now come into the Kingdom. There are at least 73 million who are fighting for goodness, righteousness, freedom, and justice to return to this nation and corruption to be rooted out. There will be a harvest of unsaved Patriots.


The Plan that Kim Clement spoke of – the brilliant Plan that could have only come from God. He downloaded it to the Q team. Trust the Plan, because it’s God’s Plan!


What is The PLAN that God downloaded to the Q team?

Watch this clip and you might get a clue:

Promises and Prophecies come to pass through NESARA and GESARA

National Economic Security and Reformation Act

Global Economic Security and Reformation Act

Watch this clip starting around 37:39 to learn more about NESARA/GESARA:


Watch the whole thing if you want to know more about all that is involved in what President Trump and the Q team have been involved in for the last 4 years.

They’ve done it all for:

The children and for humanity.

Reset, Restoration, Restitution, Reformation and everything is changing in this new era. I’d say many of the Prophets were right on the money!

For more information about what God is doing during these times follow Johnny Enlow, Jeff Jansen, Robin Bullock, Elijah Streams, Kat Kerr, Flashpoint from Victory TV on YouTube, Hank Kunneman, Nathan French, Manuel Johnson, and Amy Sever. They are on the cutting edge. And they know that:

The Best is Yet to Come!!!

P.S. A little teaser for what my next post will be about – another R word – REPUBLIC!

Safe Haven News for January 2021


2020 A Year of Trial of our Faith

Safe Haven News for January 2021

Well, we made it! Hindsight is now 2020!

Phew! Praise the Lord!

Did you learn some new things in 2020? I sure did. Some things I learned were shocking and devastating. But at the same time I saw that God was moving to rescue and restore the children who were being so terribly abused. If you don’t know what I’m talking about I can direct you to some informative videos.

I was disturbed to observe the extent that Marxist, socialist, anti-American sentiment has penetrated the minds of our youth. Seeing the “peaceful protests” that almost always turned into riots and destruction troubled me greatly. I prayed constantly during that time after the George Floyd incident. I was so frustrated by the twisting and manipulating of truth and facts by the media. Their narrative was impossible to overcome. I kept trying to fight against their narrative on Facebook and in talking to people in real life. I have known for a while that the mainstream media spins everything. But now I see the blatant lies they constantly tell. They don’t tell the truth about anything! They are like their father, the devil. When they lie, they are speaking their native language.

Then the covid stuff happened. I couldn’t believe the overreaction. I was so frustrated by the government intrusion, oppression, and restriction of our freedoms. I saw the manipulation and control behind everything they were doing. I saw that it was planned and there were more insidious things they had planned for the future. I saw where it was headed, and I chafed against the theft of our freedoms.

I have resisted wearing a mask. I have resisted fear and intimidation. I’m not afraid. I trust God. I refuse to accept lies! The masks don’t work! The virus is not as deadly as they say! Truth and freedom matter to me! I resisted the strong arm tactics because I know history. When people give in to government oppression and give up their rights, especially when demands are unreasonable, they lose those rights long term. We are fighting a greater force than just our own government. I knew that the enemy was using all of that control and domination to try to destroy us and remove our freedom. The Chinese Communist Party had been carrying out a plan to take over our nation! I will not lie down and let that happen on my watch.

I had no idea at the beginning of the year how deep and far-reaching the corruption was or how entrenched the evil was, not only in our nation, but around the world.

But God turned my heart to intercession and a desire to bring the Kingdom of God to Earth in a greater way than ever before.

I began to spend hours alone with God, seeking His face, asking Him to speak to me. As a result of those hours just sitting with Him, sometimes hearing from Him and feeling His presence, other times just being quiet and feeling peaceful, I feel like my prayers are more powerful and God can speak through me more effectively and prophetically than ever before. I’m so thankful for that. God used me to lead my sister into a relationship with Him. I’m forever grateful. I can’t even express how much joy that brings me.

The Lord has been leading me and Gary into business and ministry together. He has been helping us to learn to work together. Iron sharpening iron, smoothing off rough edges. Some days are rougher than others! But we’re thankful to be together instead of separated like we were the last couple of years because of jobs he had away from home.

Heaven gets sweeter all the time. More of our loved ones are congregating there with every passing year. My sister’s husband just joined the heavenly crowd last week. He had been fighting cancer for over a year, and we had been praying fervently for his healing. But his body finally gave out after a valiant effort. I like to imagine my mom and dad welcoming him there and showing him all the wonderful things about heaven.

I’m getting better at imagining myself in heaven and seeing Jesus there. And sometimes I picture Mom and Dad sitting on a swing together singing and swinging. I like to dream even when I’m awake sometimes. I never used to be able to use my imagination that way at all. I enjoy spending time with Jesus that way. And sometimes He speaks to me during those times.

It makes Bible reading and prayer and waiting on the Lord much more exciting. The Lord is a lot of fun. He likes riddles and jokes as much as anyone. He even likes puns. I’m starting to understand how the joy of the Lord can be my strength.

Now to wrap this newsletter up I’ll try to think of something witty or punny.

I’m still thinking.

All right I had to cheat and look one up. I’ll give you a couple since you had to wait.

Which country’s capital has the fastest growing population? Ireland. Every day it’s Dublin.

What did the janitor say when he jumped out of the closet? SUPPLIES!

She had a photographic memory but never developed it.

I hope you enjoyed my recap of 2020. And let’s pray that this year of 2021 we have smooth sailing! Heaven knows we deserve it!

“May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.”

AND – May you have fair winds and following seas.

What I mean to say is: Have a Blessed New Year!

Thanks for visiting!

Don’t Do School at Home!

Starting Out Doing School at Home

As a homeschooler, I have changed many things along the way. I started out doing things the way I saw them being done at school. I had been a first grade teacher in public school. The only way I knew to teach was the way they did in school. I had a book for phonics. I thought I should make my son do a page each day. I had a math book (which he hated). I had flash cards (which he hated). I tried to make him do the Pledge of Allegiance and sit at the table with me and work in his workbooks (all of which he hated!).

My Son Hated School at Home!

We both got tired of the struggle and contention, so I knew I needed to do something different. After a few years of struggling to make him conform to my way of doing school, I started to learn about the Charlotte Mason homeschool method. I read a book called “For the Children’s Sake” by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay, which I highly recommend to every homeschooler, and I got a new vision for how to homeschool. I started to realize that the main thing I needed to do was to read good living books to my children. I found good booklists of living books and started checking those out of the library. I read them aloud to my children and had them narrate them. I found ways to get good art and music into our home. I started using copywork. All of these are main elements to the Charlotte Mason approach.

I began to let my children learn more from real life. I didn’t try to get them to sit down with workbooks every day. I read aloud to them more than anything else. They narrated the stories and committed many details to memory. We did lots of nature study. We studied our Bible. We studied topics together in unit studies.

One Way You Can Move Away from School at Home

I recommend that you lighten the burden for your child and for yourself as the mom. Consider following a routine instead of a schedule. If you try to follow a time schedule, you’re sure to meet obstacles that will keep you from starting at the exact time you planned. You will deal with life happening and kids’ attitudes, tiredness, unexpected events, your own tiredness, and different paces that you all move at. These things can cause frustration for everyone. Consider using a framework and routines instead of a minute-by-minute, hour-by-hour schedule.

You have freedom at home to be more relaxed and not rigid. You can follow your own rhythms and preferences. If your family tends to be night owls, you can sleep in later. If you have one child that is a night owl and one that is an early bird, you can allow them to do what works best for each of them. The hours of “school” time do not have to be within the “regular” school hours. Some families start at 8 or 9 AM, while others may not start until 10 or 11 Some may not have a regular starting time.

I will be writing more in the future about how to move away from doing school at home. Stay tuned for more.

If you have any questions about how to get started, please leave a comment and I will be happy to answer your questions.

I have graduated 6 children from homeschooling, and I’m still homeschooling 4 of my children. I have advised many beginning homeschoolers over the last 24 years. I would love to help anyone who is starting out and needs some advice and encouragement!

Free Ebook! My Latest Book is Free on Amazon until Aug. 17


This is the second book I’ve written.

In this book for women who want to live the best life they can – body, soul, and spirit – we see the importance of taking care of the whole person. We learn the fullness of what it means when Jesus says our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. We find life and health in the Word of God. In this day when people are so concerned about improving their health and fitness, we can lose sight of how important our spiritual health is. And we can actually train our soul!
If you are longing for a closer walk with the Lord, and you are not sure where to start, this is the book for you. Knowing that you are God’s house on Earth gives you a whole new understanding of what this life is all about. You are here to house His Spirit and to carry out His will. You are important in the Kingdom. You are necessary. Your life and your whole being are uniquely fashioned by God.
