Brandee Gillham is so thankful she left the world of teaching collegiate anatomy to become a full-time mama. The Lord called her to spend her days homeschooling her four cowpokes (with one of those precious boys already in heaven) and she encourages other by telling them that no time invested in our children will ever be wasted. Her deepest prayer is that she will raise the men to be warriors for Christ and passionate learners. She and her cowboy enjoy serving as fourth generation ranchers on the family operation in Northeast Colorado raising beef cattle, quarter horses, chickens, and bees. If she is not at home teaching her children, she might be in a tractor or on a horse or delivering a baby. She can be found with a .22 or camera in her hand, or a baby on her hip, but preferably not at the same time. She doesn’t drink much coffee but can be seen with a cup of sugar as she loves to bake and serve food to others. She believes in Jesus Christ, home discipleship, patriotism, agriculture, hard work and speaking the truth with love and laughter.
When the world around us is drowning in chaos how do we find peace? We will study the specific scientific components of Noah’s ark (building & living) while also learning how to drop anchor in peace just like Noah and his family.
How do we disciple our children? What practical steps can we take to make sure that the work that we are doing within the walls of our home will make an impact in the world outside of those walls? We will discuss how to teach our children to listen & obey us so they are prepared to be trained and put on the full armor of God. We will never regret the time we invest in our children.
Do you have crayons and curriculum coming out of every crevice of your house? Where and how do you start? Join me to learn some practical organization skills – notebooks, tubs, and labels – oh my!
When we face some of the world’s hardest moments we come to the realization that the truth of God’s Word and the truth of God’s character does not change despite our circumstances. We will study the fact that God is good, loving, kind and merciful even when it doesn’t feel like it. Brandee’s testimony (Rev. 12:11) will powerfully reinforce these truths.
In a life when most are too busy and trying to find “balance” it is time to set that idealistic notion aside and recognize that the scales may always be tipping, but we can work toward “better.” We will discuss managing our minutes and creating a culture of hard work while also maintaining healthy goals. Where is the healthy margin in our lives?
