We are delighted to present our latest paper dolls from the Daughters of His Story series. We have had a wonderful time this summer working on the next three collections which feature Martha Washington and Eliza Lucas Pinckney, Mary Anna Jackson and Susannah Spurgeon, and Elizabeth Prentiss and Anne Bradstreet.
These ladies have become so dear to us as we studied their lives and legacies. We hope that they become as dear to to you, and that you are blessed by the Lord’s goodness radiating from their hearts. We want young ladies to grow up knowing that the Lord cherishes purity and holiness, and that He changes the world through those who are faithful to His Word.
It is not only possible to remain unstained by the world, by the Lord’s strength, but it is imperative that we be proactive in glorifying God in our lives. These women from the past are shining examples of dedication to the Lord’s work as wives and mothers who changed the world.

On June 12th, I was surrounded by my precious family and many friends whom I have had the pleasure of knowing in my lifetime. They came to celebrate what the Lord has done in my life, how He has taught, instructed, and guided me.
And how He laid it on the hearts of my parents to educate my sister and me at home.
My dear parents spoke to those gathered at our home about the workings of the Lord and His great mercy He has shown towards our family. What a blessing and encouragement to hear them speak and glorify the Lord with a testimony of His goodness.
It was a beautiful day. I have an over-abundance of things to be thankful for!
As you may well know, I will be learning for the rest of my life. I have been blessed with a love of learning. The celebration was the end of my “official” education at home, but I won’t stop the adventure there. (We do have more projects in the works!)
The decorations shown above were made from folded, vintage dictionary pages which were hot-glued together. On top was glued lace (which had been sewn into a circle) with scrapbook paper added to the center. They make for a perfect whimsical decoration!

A little over thirteen years ago, the Lord gave my mother the vision of homeschooling. As she shared about it with my father, God laid it on both of their hearts. There wasn’t a choice.
And here we are. Thirteen years later.
My gratefulness to God and to my parents can never be fully expressed. Because of being educated at home, Breezy and I were able to be raised with a biblical worldview and Christ-centered education.
The precious parents my Lord has blessed me with, by God’s grace, were able to follow the commands in Deuteronomy 6:5-7, which says,
“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your might.
These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart.
You shall teach them diligently to your sons and
shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when
you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.”
Although my “official” home education is over, my education will never be complete . . . because I’ll always be learning. Always be watching. Always be reading.
I like it that way. And I’m thankful to have had instilled in me the love of learning.
P.S. The photos are of crinkled, vintage dictionary pages, which will be a part of the decorations for my upcoming graduation open house.

She will grow up one day and become an influence to others, maybe even have an impact on an entire culture. How can a little girl one day grow, by God’s wondrous grace, into a lady who impacts the lives of others?
She is trained. To fear the Lord. To be a sturdy woman. To have character. To be a light to those around her. To be patient. To serve joyfully. To submit. To be selfless. To be a keeper at home. To be a homemaker.
By God’s grace, a little girl can grow into a godly woman who is passionate about her God-given role in the home. Her light can shine brightly and have an impact on many generations to come.
There are many examples of strong, sturdy women throughout history. We desire that the the next generation of ladies will be homemakers who delight in their God-given role and trust in the Lord with their whole being.
Raising Homemakers is a new website to encourage mothers (and daughters) in teaching and preparing daughters in the art of homemaking! There are several contributing writers, including my dear mum, Sarah Mae, June Fuentes, and Stacy McDonald (+ more!).
P.S. There is a wonderful giveaway, too! Homestead Blessings, anyone?
