Tracy / October 26, 2017

Plantar Fasciitis pain is absolutely miserable.   I have tried to cover every single detail I could think of about managing this condition. This does include photos of my shoes and inserts. They aren’t the best looking things so please be kind – I’m posting these because I’m trying to help YOU.  🙂 Some of you may prefer this information…

Sheryl’s Baked Oatmeal

We wrap all of these in plastic wrap, cover them with foil and label them before we place them into the freezer. www.LinesFromTheVine.com

I’m sharing our favorite baked oatmeal recipe. It was given to us by a very good friend. There are those friends who have just been there forever. They may not be part of your life every single day but they are in your heart. Such is life with my friend, Sheryl. More than 20 years ago, she was part of…

Happy Birthday, Jonathan!

Jon's 10th Birthday LinesFromTheVine.com

Jonathan Patrick is already another year older. His 9th year has practically flown by. These 9 year old’s have proven to be quite a challenge for Paul and I. Terrible 2’s? Not in this house. Three year old’s tend to be very “active” and require a lot of attention. They are smart enough to get into pretty much everything while…

Exodus 20

Tracy / November 23, 2016

Exodus 20 is our latest scripture memory passages. A number of months back, our pastor was teaching through this section. Each week, someone would volunteer to recite this section of scripture. My older children knew The 10 Commandments. Some of my middle kiddos had to work a bit on it and my littles were learning just from listening to the…

Book Review: 5 Minute Bible Stories

Tracy / September 1, 2015

I’m sitting down to (finally) write my book review of 5 Minute Bible Stories. Our school days are well under way. We are a few weeks in and the time seems to already be passing so fast, I can hardly keep up! (Can you believe it is already September??!!  -YIKES.) While the older children are busy with school work, the…

Teaching Children to Pray

Tracy / September 1, 2015

I have written through the years of being a little girl visiting with my great-grandmother. The example of her faith in the Lord planted seeds in my life that have continued to grow though she has been gone for many years. Of my many memories, I remember listening to her pray. She would later tell me how she prayed for…

Pregnancy Update- Week 5

Tracy / August 28, 2015

My pregnancy update- week 5….this is technically week 6, but who’s counting. (…and I’m posting in week 9!) So, what’s happening in my world? Well, morning sickness has hit hard. Sunday was the first time. I was at church when hit began to become really awful. I just wanted to lay down in a floor some place and try to…

Preparing for Pregnancy and Babies

An “experienced” mom. That is what I am these days! I don’t feel old enough to be “experienced”, but these lines on my face, this gray hair and all the photos lined up across my living room wall tell stories of days and months and years. Times that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I’ve learned a little bit along the…

Not Just an Old Wive’s Tale…

When someone told me that ants wouldn’t cross a chalk line I thought it must be an old wive’s tale. This morning, we noticed a line of ants crawling up our wall. I sent one of my older children for a piece of chalk and she drew a line of the wall to see what would happen. No pesticides. No…

Evening Routines

I’ve been working to post my home management/diligence card system today. It is still a work in progress. I foresee cards for evening chores, a mid-day routine, school work, a reading list, and I’m not sure what else. These cards have worked so well for us, I’ve found myself wondering why it took me so long to figure all of…

Morning Routines

I wrote earlier today about the DILIGENCE BOARD and the morning chore cards we have created for our family. I’m planning to make a little video a little later today about these cards. Our morning routine cards are a little different than our morning chore cards. The morning routines (especially the printed cards), lay everything out for my children in…
