Epic Church / Epic Love….

I wasnít raised attending church every Sunday.† We did go, just very sporadically.† My Daddy worked very hard to provide for us and on Saturdayís he played golf.† [AND every afternoon that he didnít have baseball/football/basketball practice with my brother]†

Sundayís were for 2 things; us all going to the town he was raised in to help his Daddy and Mother [some of my VERY favorite memories] and taking us on ìSunday Adventuresî where we explored woods and took walks in Nature went on ‘let’s just drive and see what we find’ trips and had picnics.† We always believed in God, had prayer before meals and knew the Bible.† We just didnít go each week. My Mother was one of the most spiritual people I ever met.

As I got older I visited several churches in my area.† They all seemed to just not fit with my idea of church.† I didnít dislike them, I just didnít fall in love with them.† I am a huge dis-liker of “Let’s be good on Sundays but the other days don’t matter” kind of person.

Fast forward several† years.† Keilee and I visited churches from time to time but didnít find one we loved.† I read her Bible stories, we prayed, we talked about God and Jesus.† Then one day I got a flyer on the door about a new church.† It said, ìNo Perfect Peopleî allowed.† Well there you goÖthat was ME!

When we started going to Epic there were about 30-40 people.† Now there are over 1500.† We have 5 services each Sunday plus our iCampus that people from all over the world watch.† Seriously, they announce every service who is tuned it and it is not only everywhere in the US, but Africa, Germany, China and more!†

Our church is an amazing place and it has made a huge difference in our lives.† We have an incredible preacher.† He keeps things very real.† He never wears shoes when he preaches, he loves football and is a true Southerner through and through.† He and his wife Bene’ have changed Keilee and Iís life.† Bene’ is the best person I have ever known.† One of those “REALLY GOOD and not just talking the talk” kinda people.

Another thing we loved about Epic was all the community service we do.† I have always loved volunteering and wanted Keilee to experience that at an early age.† She has done SO much volunteering at a very young age.

Keilee was baptized in this church.† When she got baptized over 4 years ago there were about 8 people that got baptized with her.† The last time we had baptism [which we do every 3 months] there were over 100!

Keilee Baptized 8 years old

One thing I love about Epic is we live by 2 ëRulesí.† Love Jesus above all things and Love people.† And love on people we do!† Epicís campus is a little metal building.† Our kids buildings are trailers that have† been totally pimped out.† We spend money on our community.† They are always doing something.† ALWAYS.

We have done:

Donate toys to families at Christmas

Free Gift Wrapping at Christmas

Serve and deliver Thanksgiving meals to 1500 people and serve over 500 inmates.

Epic volunteers at EVERY event that happens in our city.

We delivered fresh baked goods and conversation to the worst parts of our city.

We gave land to Lexi House which is an organization for unwed Mothers.

We sent people and supplies to Joplin, Missouri after their devasting tornadoes.

After the horrible April 27th tornadoes our church was everywhere!† We cleaned up, took people tons of food, loved on people, paid bills, found tents for immediate needs, bought trailers for families, opened a Store with donated items for anyone who needed it and so much more.

We have a ministry at Tent City, the place where many homeless people live.† It is amazing!†

And so much more!!!!

This week is LOVE Week.† We have it every year the week of Easter.†

Monday was ìTeachers Appreciationî Day.† We delivered over 3000 candy bars and handwritten ìThank Youî notes to the schools.† [Keilee told me she would buy me a Butterfinger ;)]

Tuesday was ëPay it Forwardí day.† Where you went to a fast food place and paid for the personís order behind you.

Wednesday was ëEpic Gives Gasí.† We swarmed some local gas stations with gas cards and gave them gas.† We didnít only pay for it, we pumped it!

Thursday morning we delivered 1500 chicken and biscuits from Chic Fil A to local firefighters and police officers.

Friday will be ëCook Your Neighborî a meal day.

Saturday is our City Wide Easter Egg Hunt.† We will hide over 15,000 Easter Eggs for the kids of our city to find.† Also we have 75 brand new bikes to give away.

Epic Love Week

I am so thankful for Epic.† It has made us kinder, and more giving.† Our lives are enriched so much.† So many wonderful things have happened since I have let God take control.

The thing that is so ìGod is in Controlî about all of this is we started going to Epic in January of 2008.† In February of 2008 my Mother got sick and died in May.† I know that God knew I was going to need something more than I had.

So today, on this day before Good Friday, I am thankful for Epic.†

†Epic iCampus† Click on ìiCampusî ñ Join us some Sunday.† Services are at 9:00, 10:30, 12:00, 4:00 and 6:00.† Central Time.† If you watch the 9:00 service, look for Keilee and I.† We always sit front and center. 😉

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding…

I am not† a huge fan of ‘sweets’.† I know, I know, I’m weird.† Just have never liked them.† And I really don’t like chocolate at all!

I do like them more than I used to and Keilee likes them but she isn’t a huge eater of them.† She would rather have broccoli or spinach than chocolate.† Seems like whenever we make a cake or dessert, I end up throwing most of it away.

Now that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate a great dessert recipe.† I was reading a novel and in it the girl describes a dessert she made with Krispy Kreme donuts.† Well I had to find that recipe.

I turned to trusty Google and found one from Paula Deen but it wasn’t the same as the girl in the book.† Finally I found it and I am going to share it with you all.

This is SO GOOD!† I think if you ate the entire thing you would go into a sugar induced coma.† We shared it with neighbors and my Daddy and still had to throw the last little bit away.†

Here, for your tasting pleasure is “Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding”.† Make it…trust me…MAKE IT.

Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding

†††† 1 dozen Krispy Kreme Doughnuts

††† 1 small can sweetened condensed milk

††† 1 tsp cinnamon

††† 1/2 tsp salt

††† 2 eggs

†Butter Icing

††† 2 t. Vanilla Flavoring

††† 1/4 butter or margarine

††† 2 cups powdered sugar

†††† Cube doughnuts in bowl.† Pour sweetened condensed milk over doughnuts and toss lightly to evenly coat the chunks. In a small bowl whisk eggs, cinnamon and salt; pour over doughnut chunks. Stir until evenly distributed and set aside. Let set for 10-15 minutes to absorb as much moisture as possible.

†Bake in an oven safe dish at 350 degrees for approx. 30-40 minutes; until slightly crisp on top. You want the bread pudding to be moist, but no raw egg.

While baking make icing:

†In a microwave safe bowl melt butter. Add Vanilla flavoring and stir well. Slowly whisk in powdered sugar working out lumps.† [I had to add a little more butter to get the right consistency]†

Pour over hot bread pudding. Serve immediately.

This is RICH! †So sweet.† So good!† Yummy.

You will all love me! I promise 🙂

And to all my Roamies…next get together, I am bringing this.† You all are the first people I thought of when I saw the recipe. 😉

Botany, Nature and Doggie Birthdays….

Keilee loves to take pictures.† She will go months and barely touch the camera and then just go on a shooting [camera that is] spree.† Here are some of her latest pictures.† I love the way she sees things. She also really likes ‘macro’ shots.

We did lots of learning this week and it mainly seemed to revolve around botany and nature.† I think the amazing weather had something to do with that.

1.†† Lovely glass bottle set my brother got at a garage sale for $1.† As soon as I saw it I begged him to let me have it.† Keilee made all sorts of flower potions this week.

2.†† Keilee’s drawing of the parts of a plant.† We also did a really cool experiment that I plan to share later.

3.†† Keilee sitting in her tree reading one of our† “National Audubon Society Field Guides”.† I think this one was “Birds”. † You have to get these books if you don’t have them.† I got mine as a Secret Sister gift in our homeschool group a couple of years ago.† We love them!

4.†† Tuesday was Nomad’s 2nd birthday.† Keilee made him a peanut butter and carrot ‘cake’.† We also bought him toys.† This is the hat he wears on each birthday.† He has worn it several times because Keilee used to make us celebrate every ‘MONTH’ birthday!

5.†† Keilee and Nomad ‘cuddling’.

6.†† Keilee planted broccoli and peas in her garden.† She has decided the reason nothing ever grows is because it isn’t HER garden exclusively.† She worked for hours on this.

7.†† Keilee’s miracle potion.† She rubbed it all over my legs and arms!† Someone needs to polish their fingernails; I’m just sayin’.

My favorite resource this week is a good one!† It is a YouTube channel called “History Teachers“.† They take current songs and write songs that talk about all sorts of history events.† Let me tell you after listening to the one below Keilee will NEVER forget that ‘fleas on rats’ caused the Black Death!† *Disclaimer, the videos we watched were all appropriate but I think these are for ‘high school’ so view at your discretion.

ìReading about nature is fine, but if a person walks in the woods and listens carefully, he can learn more than what is in books, for they speak with the voice of God.î ~ George Washington Carver

“. . . the more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us the less taste we shall have for the destruction of our race.“† ~Rachel Carson


Do you have a passion? Something that moves you?† Something you can not live without?† I don’t think I do.† I mean, I have many things I love, many things that make my life better.

Reading? Maybe reading is my passion.† I do love to read.† I can’t imagine living without it…so I suppose reading is mine.

My child’s passion is acting.† She loves being on the stage more than anything else in the world.† She first auditioned when she was barely 6 and sang, “Tomorrow” from Annie.† I was scared to death for her.† She wasn’t nervous in the least.† She has never been nervous…ever…not one time.† She wishes she could practice every day.† She wakes up excited if she has practice that day.† She practices her lines over and over and over and you get the picture. 🙂

1. Her 1st role – a bee in “Jungle Book”.† Everyone called her “Queen Bee”.† She had to stay on stage the entire time.† She was adorable.† No lines, just songs.

2.† Her 2nd role.† A Chihuahua in “101 Dalmatians”.† She had her first lines in this play.† I think she had 3.

3.†† A flower in “Enchanted Sleeping Beauty”.† She was in 3 scenes.† She had a ballet dance that began the show, a scene where they gave Sleeping Beauty her gifts as a baby and when Sleeping† Beauty married her Prince.

4.† Meeko in “Pocahontas”† She did a little dance and was in 3 other scenes with Pocahontas.

1. and 2.† This was for “Wonderland”.† She had 2 roles; a red pawn and a Dixie Chicken that was Humpty Dumpty’s back up singers.† She had to change clothes down to her tights and a wig; in about 2 minutes! Freaked me out, but she did it every time.

3.† Cindy Lou Who in “Seussical”.†† She loved this role!

1.† She was in “101 Dalmatians” again with a different theatre company.† She wanted the role of Horace so badly and got it!† Her first time playing a ‘boy’ role.

2.† She was a maid in “Annie”.† She had 2 dances.† We loved doing this play.

3.† Scout in “To Kill A Mockingbird”† 217 lines!† She did such a great job.† This is one of her favorite roles.

4.† The Wicked Witch in “The Wizard of Oz”.† She did evil very well.† A little boy in the audience had to be taken out and he wouldn’t come back in!† She felt really bad and also giggled just a bit.

Now we are working on play number 11.† I get exhausted at times.† Plays are a lot of work and not just for the actors.† I always help back stage and of course I have to provide transportation.† I don’t really mind, I love it too.

Who knows where this will lead Kei.† She already knows where she ‘thinks’ she wants to go to college.† It is a college with a wonderful “Theater Arts” program.† She may change her mind before the time actually comes.†† But she usually makes her mind up and sticks to it.


What do you do to inspire and nurture your children’s passion?

Hardware Stores, Tallulah, and HUNGER GAMES…

I love doing these “Friday Collages”.† It helps me see exactly what we do.† We do A LOT! This was an awesome week!

We had a field trip to a hardware store in Huntsville that was founded in 1879.† It is called Harrison Brother’s and was founded by brothers. 🙂 It is crammed pack full of old things and new things.† It is now run by the Historic Society and it was a wonderful way to spend an hour.† We had a tour and then just meandered around.

Keilee got to taste honey; garlic and bacon honey!!† She liked it.

Afterwards Keilee and I roamed around downtown.† It was a BEAUTIFUL day with the Dogwood trees and 76∞ weather.† We also saw Tallulah Bankhead’s house.† She was born and raised in Huntsville.† She was a very bad girl who lived life by NO ONE’s rules. †

We did history this week.† We learned about the Rus’s and Ivan the Great and Ivan the Terrible.† I am thinking we will never finish SOTW 2 by end of the year.† We are only on Chapter 23 and there are 44 Chapters!† EEK!

We are doing a lot of Chemistry/Elements.† I found a really great download that we have been using. ElementsFirstTwoChaptersSample.† I am really not sure where I got it….It is a sample of a course.† I wish I could find the entire thing! Anyone know?

She has been doing a lot of drawing on the iPad.† She uses an app called “Inspire” that she really likes.† She also has had practice for “The Princess and The Pea” and while this is a small role she is hysterical in it.† I LOVE this role!†

Keilee had a 2 hour lab that they were SUPPOSED to dissect a perch.† Instead they watched a virtual dissection.† The kids were not very happy about it and neither were the Mamas.† We all were assured that would not happen again.

AND…she was so excited Thursday.† She and Chan have had a† Webkinz blog for a year or so and they work really hard on it.† Well Ganz/Webkinz commented on it Thursday.† Isn’t that cool!???† In fact one of my favorite resources is Webkinz.† Keilee spends a lot of time on this site and has since she was 6.† She has learned about animals, personal finance, integrity and so many more great lessons.† She loves going to the Trading Hall and keeps a notebook with what her items are worth and what she wants to trade for.† Keeping her Webkinz blog she is constantly writing and editing articles.† We love Webkinz.

Fish and Webkinz!

†Since the weather has been so amazing Keilee has played outside often.† She is trying to learn to do a back walkover.† She uses one of the buildings to push herself off.† I know she will get it by summer.

Back Walkover

†And last night was THE HUNGER GAMES.† We were so excited.† We decided to go over early and hang out with Kathy and Sophie.† We went to eat and just sat around and talked until around 11:00.† It was so fun getting ‘ready to go’ with a house full of females.† We loved the movie.† It wasn’t perfect, but I have never seen a perfect ‘book into movie’ film.† The violence was not much to me….of course it was there, but it wasn’t over the top.† Several of the fighting scenes were so closely shot that you couldn’t really tell what was what.† There were 7 theaters showing it and they were all PACKED.† Fun times!† * See Keilee’s “District 12” shirt? She also had on Mockingjay earrings.

Getting in bed at 3:00 AM wiped this Mama out.† Today we are moving really slow.

Mehndi Gloves, Pysanky Eggs, The Simple Life and MORE….

Spring?† It feels like SUMMER here.† I can not believe this weather.† Ok, we had a really mild winter but 80∞ in the middle of March is crazy.† I want to drag out all of our summer clothes but as soon as I do it will SNOW!

We have had such an incredible week.† It included a lot of ‘going’ places, but also a lot of learning.

†1.†† Keilee made this picture of her art drawing figure.† Behind it is one of her old cameras.† She LOVES old cameras.†

2.††† Keilee also made this picture of her favorite subject, Nomad.† I swear she had some that I think was shot UP his nose!

3.††† Went to see “The Lorax” with a homeschool group.† I liked it very much even though 3D is not my favorite most of the time.† “The Lorax” is my favorite Dr. Seuss book.

4.†† One of my FAVORITE RESOURCES of the Week.† “Girls Who Looked Under Rocks”.† This is an awesome book.† It is about 6 female naturalists.† Anna Botsford Comstock is one of them.† We read this book all week and looked up information on all the women featured.† Keilee is going to do a report on one of them next week.

5.† A very cool recycle project we saw at Burritt Museum.† It is all made from the tops and caps of various things!

6.† Lilac Bush – this was beautiful and smelled so wonderful!

We did a very cool art thing called Mehndi Gloves.† Here is a link to the lesson plan.† Mehndi Art Gloves Lesson PlanOurs didn’t look as good as the ones portrayed but we had a lot of fun with them.† Our gloves were a little big and I think it would have been better if they were tighter.† I got our gloves at Dollar General and they were ‘one size fits all’.

†We also went to Burritt Museum to take a class about Pysanky Eggs.† The class was informative but the actual “making of” was a little lacking.† Keilee and I both thought it was a little too “Easter Eggish” instead of “Ukranian Eggish”.† There was a HS Mom who sat next to me who told me she and her family had just spent a month in Ukranine because she was adopting her daughter from there!† Even though ours didn’t turn out as cool as the videos Kei and I watched it was still fun!

After the class we roamed around the Historic section of Burritt on the Mountain. They have beautifully restored historic homes from the 1800’s and 1900’s.† They also have animals.† Keilee was in heaven.† She said she could see us living in one of these houses.† I told her that would be awesome as long as I had electricity and indoor plumbing!

Animals and More Animals!

We have been spending huge amounts of time outside.† We have walked the dog, laid out, rode our bikes, gone on wildflower walks and just sat under the trees and talked.† I love this time of year.

We have been playing an iPad game A LOT called Charadium HD.† It is another “FAVORITE RESOURCE”.† It is too fun.† It is like Pictionary and you play with other people.† Everyone so far seems really nice and doesn’t use bad language or anything.† Keilee loves this game.† She plays it all the time.† It also helps her with her typing and spelling which she needs!† Hores indeed!† I think she meant holes. 😉


My favorite picture this week:

Watching the Sheep...

Keilee loved learning about Marco Polo this week from SOTW.† Then we watched a really good Hallmark Channel Movie called “Marco Polo”† [duh huh?]† We kept having to pause it while Keilee told me things she remember from her reading.† I love that!

And next week is the HUNGER GAMES!!† We have had our tickets for a month.† EEP!† 12:01 AM will find us at the movie theater.† Keilee is thinking about dressing up as Katniss like she did for Halloween. ††

Isn’t homeschooling just the best thing ever???†

Christina’s Interview With Keilee….

Christina at Interest Led Learning interviewed Keilee last week for her blog.† We LOVE Christina’s blog and get so many great ideas from it.† She is the Mom of twin 6 year olds!

Here is the beginning of her interview…

“Today Iím so excited to share an interview I did with Keilee. Keilee is 12 and has been homeschooling for the last five or so years. Iíve learned a lot about all the creative things Keilee has been doing lately from visiting her mom Karenís blog at HomeschoolGirls.

I wanted to interview Keilee because she lives a life full of imagination, creativity and passion outside the school system. My kids are still young, so I find it so exciting to read about older kids who are doing some really cool things. (Not that we arenít too, but at a different level )”

Read the rest HERE.

Thanks again Christina for giving Kei this wonderful opportunity.

Wicked, Spring is in the Air, & Math and Science Fun…

This week was unbelievable!† After the crazy show week and the crazy FLU week, it was nice to get back to semi-normal.

First of all we saw Wicked.† To say we loved it would be a huge understatement.† It was MAGNIFICENT, SUPERB, AWESOME, BLOW OUR MINDS great.† Keilee knew every song but we didn’t know the ENTIRE story line.† She was on the edge of her seat the entire time, literally.† I would have sat through it again immediately afterwards.† Even if you don’t like Broadway shows [and HOW is that possible????] you would love “Wicked”.† I even loved the $40 T Shirt that she wanted…..ok, I didn’t love it, but I stood in line with other crazy people and happily gave up the money.†

We did so much this week I can’t even remember all of it.† There was lots of learning.† We learned about sine and cosine, we made roller coasters and more on a great site I found.† It is my resource of the week.† It is called Math Apprentice and we both learned so much.† Doncha love when YOU learn stuff too?

Math Fun!
Periodic Tables and Roller Coasters

We tried veggie black bean burgers and I was so sad that we didn’t like them much.† What did we do wrong Jess??† Keilee made some Taco Chicken Soup that was delish though!

Black Bean Burgers and Chicken Taco Soup

Keilee did some playing outside.† We are both so ready for warm weather.† Even though we didn’t have much cold.† I found this app called Fast Camera that takes about 100 or more pictures a minute and played around some with it.

Cartwheel Fun

We also did an experiment to find out whether atoms move faster in cold, hot or room temperature water.† [Hot in case you were wondering],

Keilee made a draw string purse which turned out very cool [it is a lot larger than it looks in this picture]†

Kei and I have been talking a lot about how important our words can be.† I have gotten into a horrible habit of saying, “Stupid”.† Everything and everybody is ‘Stupid’.† I am trying very hard to do away with that word.† And because I say it, of course Kei does.† We talked about being critical and how even though everyone needs someone to ‘vent’ to and we have each other for that; we need to be more supportive and kinder.† To help us remember Keilee made us both ‘Think’ bracelets.† Like ‘Think before you speak’.† I love the idea and am wearing mine everyday.

†We got the bracelet idea from this Monthly Newsletter called “Homeschooling Ideas- Fuel the Fire”.† Sign up for this if you haven’t.† REALLY..do it NOW.† It is awesome and I look forward to it every month.† Here is a link to this months newsletter.†It is my other Favorite Resource this week.

There was even time for SILLY.† We do silly a lot at our house.† Don’t you?

Oh and Keilee tried out for another play “The Princess and the Pea”.† She got the role she wanted; Princess Diana Dingaling of Dingdong.† A princess who does nothing but sing and dance all day…type casting I say.† Rehearsals start next week….oy vey.†
