4 Creative Secrets To A Happy Home~ Review

I think it is safe to say, that we all want happy, peaceful homes. We want our homes to be a refuge from the chaos of the world around us. I was recently given the opportunity to read 4 Secrets to a Happy Home. This ebook gives practical tips to help manage your home.

If your home is in need of organization, this ebook has some fantastic tips, to help you along the way. Most homeschool moms I know are busy! (Even that is an understatement.) Things get out of order quickly, including our spiritual walk. If you are anything like me, I will commit to get things in order, and that works for a few weeks, but then, all too soon, the entire house falls back into the same routines as before. This book gives great insights on being able to maintain an organized lifestyle and disciplined household.

We all know that being organized and prepared helps things in our homes run much smoother. One of my favorite tips Lorrie gives in the book, is making quiet time a habit. I know for me personally, getting my quiet time in, is the most important part of my day. On the days that I don’t make time for the Word, the day just does not seem to flow as smooth.

This book has great tips to help you not only get it together, but keep it together! So, if you could use some help getting your home to be a peaceful home, download your FREE copy of  4 Secrets to a Happy Home today!

Is Your History As Fun As Ours?

I have to admit I have never been interested in History. My husband, on the other hand, is a History buff, and loves it! Naturally because it isn’t my thing I have never really enjoyed teaching it. Until now!


Mystery of History is not your typical history curriculum. Between the fabulous content of the book, the fantastic lapbooks, and all the other extras that you can get to go along with it, there is never a boring lesson. My kids are loving history now, and we are ALL learning so much together.

Coloring the Continents

For one of our activities each of my kiddos are making their own lapbooks. We were just introduced to lapbooks last year, and they have quickly become a favorite in our house. Bright Ideas Press offers a supplement for the lapbooks, that come with easy to follow directions. All you have to do is print them out. We are taking 1 day each week during our history time to add to our lapbooks.

Adding the covers to the lapbooks

There are also activities listed with each lesson. We are doing several of those, as well. Last week, when learning about Adam naming all the animals God created, the kids made their own creation from clay and named them. They all loved this. My kids are very artsy so anything to do with arts and crafts is perfect for them. Here, are their creations:


The start of our clay creatures

Monkey’s Lion Snake


Tink’s Rhino Giraffe


Froggy’s Whale Shark

The Artist’s Scorpitron

I have a surprise up my sleeve for these week’s lessons. I am hoping I can pull it off. We are studying Dinosaurs the day before we leave on a trip. We will be VERY close to Glen Rose, TX, and it is loaded with fun things to do all centered around our big extinct friends. 🙂

So is your history as fun as ours? If not be sure to visit Bright Ideas Press!
