5 Influences to Determine Your Priorities

There are five influences that we have found in determining priorities in life. Obviously, there are more impacts than these; however, these are the five that have guided us through the years. Like everything else we have learned and applied in our lives, these were learned from others (especially through Gregg Harris Seasons of Life seminar)—for which we will be eternally grateful.


The five influences on prioritizing include the following:

Podcast: Part II – Trip Tips to Planning the Perfect & Money Saving Disney World Vacation

Podcast Part II - Trip Tips to Planning the Perfect & Money Saving Disney Vacation

Donna Reish, co-author and co-presenter of Raising Kids With Character parenting seminar and blog and fifty curriculum books (including February 2016 releases of five levels of Write On, Peter Pan books and March 2016 releases of five levels of Write On, Mowgli book) from Character Ink Press, brings you this Wondering Wednesday podcast episode in which her guest, son Joshua Reish, answers even more questions about planning an amazing (and affordable!) family vacation to Walt Disney World. In this episode, Joshua delves even more deeply into saving money while dining at Disney, including the peak times for the free dining plan as well as purchasing a dining plan (to still save meal money over buying each meal separately). His thorough explanation of the snacks, quick service meals (counter meals), and sit-down meals will help you put all of the Disney dining pieces together in order to enjoy the amazing food and service that Disney offers. Joshua also goes further into the fast passes and making the most of each day at WDW.


A Writing Tip for Every Year: Eleventh Grade

A Writing Tip for Every Year: Eleventh Grade

Eleventh Grade: Guide your student in editing his papers.

I always advise homeschooling moms to use grading time wisely in all subjects. For example, in math, rather than grading your student’s math separately and giving him back a paper with a score on it, grade it with your student right by your side—and point out errors and use grading time as teaching time. (This will be some of the most valuable teaching time that you can ever find! What better way to learn than from our mistakes immediately.)


Word of the Year: COMPLETION

Word of the Year 2015

Last year I jumped on the “word of the year” bandwagon. I have really liked this concept, and I feel that my word served me well.

Why, then, am I keeping this word for the month of January 2016 instead of moving on to my (surprising) word for the new year?

Because my word for 2015 was COMPLETION. And I’m not finished with that word yet! (Yeah, ironic, huh?)
