Last week, my little guy finished his copywork that he began before the end of last year. We were both so excited to read through his booklet and see how much his handwriting and reading have improved since he began the book.
While I was thrilled, I was also little sad. He’s my baby. I know he has to grow up, but each milestone is one ‘last’ time.
I want to hold him a little longer and capture the lasts .

While I was happy, I was a little edgy. As I have mentioned, we are cutting corners so we can pay our bills and pay off debt. This month, this month of thanksgiving has left us with more bills coming in – than money to pay them. Knowing that, I knew I had to find a way to provide something for him to continue his copywork, but also not spend any money doing so.
In that moment, I knew part of why we are on this path. You see, I know we are fully responsible for where we are, but I also believe in God’s sovereignty and that He designed these moments to help grow us closer to him. I could sit and stew – feel sorry for us for where we are, or I can find beauty, grace and give thanks for each moment and look for ways to bless my family and possibly yours.

So, I created something for him and a little something for me. I know he will benefit from the scripture in the copywork and I also know that the prayer devotional will keep me focused on God’s Word and help me dig a little deeper than just copywork.
Knowing many of you are struggling and also because I do love helping others, I decided to share them with you.
Both are free and available for download. The copywork is a compilation of verses from the Bible. As I was creating the copywork, I decided to take most of the same verses and create a prayer journal – you can use alone or with your family. It is very similar to my first prayer journal, but it does not have different chapters. The entire book is focused on giving thanks.
I pray both of these bless you and provide you with something you can use to grow your family closer to God and help reduce the amount of money you may be spending on curriculum or devotionals.
I am thankful for the way you bless me by sharing this journey with me and I pray you are blessed in this little corner of the internet.
