Recently I asked my older brother what brand starch he uses, and he told me he only uses Faultless Premium Starch and that nothing else works as good.  Thus, when I received an email asking me to review Faultless Premium Starch, I jumped at the opportunity.  Surely it had to to be better than anything else I’d tried.  And boy was it!  Read more and see what I mean.

From a family of picky ironers, there is only one starch I will use and this is it--Faultless Premium Starch. Come read why!

Growing up I was the youngest of 3 with my two brothers being 8 and 12 years older than me.  Even as a small girl I remember watching my brothers iron their own clothes before heading to work.  The oldest, who is now a businessman in the corporate world, still irons his own shirts and will never iron anything without a good starch.  And what is that starch?  Here is the ONLY starch my brother will use and why.

Kids.  Sometimes they are so loving.  Sometimes so frustrating.  And sometimes they are just plain funny.  I think Jesus had it right when he said, “Allow the children, and do not forbid them to come to me, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 19:14). Sometimes simplicity is best.  That said, here are 10 things my girls taught me while homeschooling this past year.

This year we decided to create a Calendar Notebook for our morning board time.  The result is what you see below, and I’m so excited because they not only cover the calendar, but weather, money, numbers to 100, time, place value, and more.  Come grab your FREE copy and join us this year on a Calendar Notebook adventure!

Sometimes its fun to come up with something special to do during playtime. Not only does it take the norm out of our day, it also creates some memories for a lifetime. Here’s a few of our favorite activities.

Story
Tagline
Christian Home Life | Homeschool
Introduction
Kathy Gossen seeks to encourage others to live for Jesus in the everyday no matter what the occasion.  She is frequently found living out this motto as she organizes her closets for the twentieth time, prepares homeschool lesson plans for two wiggly worms, cooks for a picky eater (aka her husband), or learns how to become a better blogger.  In the end she just prays that her life song sings of love for her Lord, and she hopes to encourage others along the way in her writings on Cornerstone Confessions.  

Kathy also serves as the Executive Director and non-profit founder of Central Oklahoma Homeschool Choirs, a 5-choir choral program providing a quality choral education to over 170 area homeschool students ages 5-18.  As ED of COHC, she is also the coordinator of the Oklahoma Homeschool Choral Fest, a solo and ensemble and large group choral event for all Oklahoma homeschool students ages 8-18 led under the direction of a nationally known clinician.
