So odd to walk through the store and see all the “back to school” items out. This being our first year of homeschooling ... I did not realize what emotions would stir up or when they would stir up. I truly believe we are making the best decision for our family, but there is still just this feeling of “I am not moving with the current so something must not be right”. I know that logic does not make sense as I am typically not a go with the “majority” kind of person 😂. Maybe it’s just the feeling of feeling like I am missing out on some kind of experience? Back to school shopping is an experience. It is an event my kids would get excited about and honestly I would be all anxious because I would wait until the last minute 🤪. I am sure this year will birth other experiences like this one ... and I am sure I will share them with you all 😉. Would love to hear about your experiences of transitioning into homeschooling ... while watching “the common system” happening around you ❤️.

Happy 12th Angel Day to my middle child, my sweet angel and the girl who opened my eyes to a world full of beautiful Turner girls. Not many people
get to hold an angel in their arms but I did and I am so very thankful for that. Give PeePaw and Grandaddy a big hug sweet pea. Until I see you again..... I love you Rebecca Noel. ❤️ #turnersyndrome #ilovemybutterfly #turnerup #rebeccamattered

We had so much fun with this book 😀 looking for all the hidden things ... while listening to some fun music. Loving to learn again = realizing that learning is all about exploring and experiencing

Since our prayer map journals have arrived we have added prayer time to our morning devotional bible lesson time. I want this to be a time of relationship development with their creator. I want them to learn how to talk and walk with Him. I want them to know and experience our relational God. I want them to learn how to pray in His will and not their will. I want them to see how God shows himself through our prayers. #devotionaltime #relationshipdevelopment #thislivingministry #turnerup #prayermap

For those who are maybe just now starting to journey with us ... this is our first year homeschooling. My two oldest 9 & 11 have just transitioned into homeschooling from public school. Today I noticed something about my 9 year old. As she was working on her schooling she kept saying “I am almost done mom, I am almost done”. I kept reassuring her that she was ok. She continued to repeat this statement. Then I recalled many moments when her past teacher would often tell me that my daughter was not getting her work done, and then when I would ask my daughter about what was going on she would tell me “mom I did not have time to finish”. I think multiple of these experiences has caused my daughter to have some slight anxiety/worry/stress around “getting her work done on time”. I feel that we had a healing/restoring moment when we both were able to process these past events (storytelling is a great way to help kids organize their experiences). #norushhomeschooling #findingourrythem #timemanagementskillsaregoodandwewillgettheresoon #homeschooling #homeschooled #homeschoolingmama #restoring #storytelling #lovingthesemoments #turnerup

Me trying to get a cute selfie with my youngest lol 😂. He would not give up the chip. I follow lots of homeschooling pages and their  pictures always look so good ... I am always trying to figure out how to edit pictures to make them look nice and professional. You know what there is beauty in trueness, rawness, and vulnerability. I will choose to post the picture 😊. Friends do not post for the “likes” and the “hearts”. Or “followers” !!! You are already enough 😘. #dontgetsuckedintosocialmediastandards #youareenough #postthepicture #yourkidsaremorethanainstagrampost #sharetruth #thislivingministry #turnerup #beyou

Continued .... Our “Civil Rights Movement Learning Unit”. Yesterday as I was walking down the street with my four beautiful brown children I was overwhelmed with gratitude for the many many black mamas who marched for freedom. Because of these amazing mamas and many others we get to walk down the street in freedom. We have the freedom and right to choose what school we want, we have the freedom and right to use whatever restroom is open, we have the freedom and right to go to the library, we have the freedom and right to play at whatever park we want ... I know there are still hardships, and am I grateful that we continue to strive for equality in schools, employment, and housing. Tears filled my eyes ... I know I breathe freedoms that many were never given. Today I say thank you ❤️. #civilrightsmovement #openyoureyes #thisispartoftheamericanhistory #iwillneverunderstandthiskindofhate #ourgodisagodoflove #breathefreedom #iwillalwayshavefreedominchrist #sograteful #mykidsawaketoadifferentday #homeschooling #turnerup

So much fun at our local children’s museum yesterday. We love our mobius center. We decided to get a membership during the winter months and have never regretted it. This place is great during those winter cold days, hot summer days, and when you just need a change of environment. Lots of exploring play, experiential play, and imaginary play. Sometimes they have fun teaching events too 😊. #homeschooling #sciencemuseum #childrensplay #letthemexplore #turnerup #ouradventures

Hello, hello, hello! Hope everyone made it home from #tssus safely. Mom and I did. Still recovering from a long day of sightseeing (@museumofbible) and traveling. Our flight was delayed, so instead of getting home at 11 PM, we finally made it home at about 2:15 AM. Needless to say, it has been a long day back at work. Once I get my head back on straight, I'll write a recap post! In the meantime, tell me your favorite parts! Who's headed to #Nashville next year? Sending love! 💜 .

“Now that it’s gone, we don’t know who we are anymore.” -Stephen Trask and John Cameron Mitchell, “Tear Me Down” from HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH | As a German descendant, it’s something to see a piece of your country of origin’s history. As a journalism student, it’s fascinating to see pieces of the coverage of it finally coming down. #Newseum #Conference2018 #TurnerUp

Found some great world music at our library today so had to stop by our goodwill and purchase a CD player. Love learning about different cultures through music. Here are a few of the cds we picked. #noneedtoworryaboutewifi #noscreensneeded #worldmusic #globalperspective #cultureisimportant #turnerup #homeschooling #weloveourlibrary
Life's challenges are not supposed to paralyze you. They're supposed to help you discover who you really are.
Through the hardship and the struggle you will discover how truly strong you are and that nothing is beyond your reach.

Working your glutes isn't easy. I watch my wife @raizel.turner put in hard work on her glutes and witness her go through the struggle and pain. And now that I've been doing these hip thrust I totally lately I totally feel her pain. But from what I can see from watching her is its so worth it. 
The struggle is the journey, the reward is the results.

#civilrightsmovement  study unit day 2. We are loving this interactive book. So fun to see my kids think about what options they would choose. After we do our reading time I have my kids journal/draw a reflection piece ... today’s reflection piece came with a question. We ended our reading on a “would you do ______ or _______?” The kids had to pick one of the options and share why. They presented their entry to the family after dinner. #growingfeelersandthinkers #introducingempathy #growingthewholeperson #homeschooling #speaktruth #turnerup

We were pretty excited today ... Naylani can officially spell her name 😃. Naylani just turned 4 and I was feeling pretty bad because I had not taught her how to spell her name yet ... the mama guilt was kicking in. I thought it would take awhile to teach her ... like weeks or even months. Today we sat together, as I was holding a crying tired baby, and my older two were trying to discuss their topics with me 🤪. She blew me away ... the girl had her whole name done in about 20 minutes. We went through every letter once and then she just busted it out and has not stopped writing it since. I loved her face as she showed her daddy when he got home from work ❤️. We rejoice in the process and the person not the outcome (we are not an achievement based house hold) She showed up and conquered!!! #shemovesmountains #whoopwhoop #icanspellmyname #homeschooling #turnerup #getitgirl

Most of the packing is done! Can’t wait for #14. #Conference2018 #TurnerUp
Most of my post are done late at night. I am open to my kids giving me feedback. They have given me feedback that they feel I am on my phone too much 🤦🏽‍♀️... eeeck not fun to hear!! So I took the feedback and spent time processing it. I do run my business through Facebook and other sites so I do a lot of work from my phone (responding to clients, marketing, emails, calendar, ect.).
To decrease how often my phone is in my hand while around kids I only have my phone in my hand if I am taking pictures (no editing), responding to a family text or close friend text (and this is not immediate unless it’s important or urgent), client has an emergency like situation (I have special hours to return calls and scheduling). So now I post our day at the end of the day when they are sleeping and I have a few moments to myself. I sit in my comfy corner and upload photos 😊. I order photo books that are linked to my Facebook and Instagram account so it’s important I keep it up to date or I get super super behind and takes forever to catch up 😮. The feedback was hard to hear and I greatly appreciated it. I loved how my girls felt courages enough to share with me 😊🙌🏽
.... and don’t forget about the importance of making time for your relationship with your spouse. My relationship with my husband also requires precious time that I don’t want to miss while looking at a screen.

Fun art!!! I have always told myself I suck at art so now as an adult I do not even try!!! Ugh ... I so do not want that for my children. I want to enhance their creativity and uniqueness. I want their creativity to be personal. I want them to love their art because it’s THEIR VERSION of art. You can follow instructions but the end result will still be your master piece and that is good enough ❤️ #creativeminds #create #beyou #personalinspiration #turnerup

Throughout the rest of the summer we will be learning about the Civil Rights Movement. When I was in school we literally only spent 2-3days on this topic and it was usually around Martin Luther King Jr. day!!! I think that’s wrong. I am determined to give my kids a diverse and TRUE history experience. We need to share the truth with our children. We cannot only share half truths or water downed versions. Age appropriate is different than leaving out critical details. #civilrights #martinlutherking #speaktruth #letstellthefullstory #turnerup #summerlearning

#homeschooling in small spaces. We have a pretty small home for a family of 6. I am having to be creative with space. We most likely won’t ever own a large home because I love the concept of a small home. We are currently renting. The vision is to buy land and then build. I would like a large tiny home 😊. We love hosting so we are already thinking of how to make our space welcoming for guest. I would love a #tinyhome and a large wrap around porch that was covered... and then a RV for fun travel and a place guest could stay. Ok done day dreaming lol 😂☁️🌈. This home is giving us lots of practice ... love how the Lord trains the heart. #smallspaces #creativespace #turnerup

Well daddy told the kids that the flowers were peeing ... my girls were like “this makes no sense at all ... how can a plant pee if it does not have organs ... ugh so weird”. Omg 😂😂😂 ... I just have to share that my husband is the best jokester that I know. He can literally say something with a strait face to the point that you will be questioning your thought process. As my girls came to dialogue with me ... I was thinking o my goodness they are actually thinking this through lol #relearnmoment #noflowersdonotpee #daddyhasjokesallday #turnerup #thislivingfamilyministry

We had to add in some #education on the 4th. You would be amazed how many celebrate this day and have no idea what they are celebrating 🤭😮. We went over to #youtubeuniversity and found some fun kid friendly videos on WHY we celebrate the 4th of July 🎉. We also talked about how black slaves did not receive independence on the same day we revisited a lesson on #juneteenth. It’s important that we share the full history of America... yup even the not so pretty parts. #turnerup #speaktruth #fourthofjuly

Yesterday I cleaned out the fridge and was sick to my stomach with ALL the food we wasted 🤦🏽‍♀️!!! Ugh no more of that. We had a family talk about the issue. We will eat left overs before cooking a new meal. Sometimes we simply waste food because “ugh I am kinda tired of eating that” or “ I am in the mood for something else”. What a privilege we have to waste food 🤔. Nope we will be the change we want to see in the world. We have been given more than enough. We are called to be responsible of things we have been given. #thislivingministry #leftovers #thankfulfortheovers #lessismore #turnerup #newadventures #beresponsiblewithyourblessings

There is something special about the kitchen table ... so many good conversations , so many “be with” moments. Sharing food, sharing time, sharing laughs, and sharing joy. It’s our place of pause while life continues around us. We usually serve our kids their plates, but tonight I changed it up. They loved serving themselves and serving others around them. I think I will stick to this method 😍 #kitchentablemoments #slowdown #enjoythesemoments #thislivingfamily #turnerup

You know that old saying, play the hand you're dealt? Well you don't have to accept the hand you're dealt. 
In poker you can throw the cards away you don't like to get new ones. In life you can change the hand you're dealt by changing the actions you take daily. 
Always be working on making a better hand, staying healthy and fit, working towards a better life, inner peace and joy, better relationships with the ones you love , helping others , and Financial Freedom.
We are at our best when we are free.

Happy Birthday so our sweet 4 year old Naylani 😍 #turnerup #birthdaylove #wecelebrateallthatyouareandwillbe #thatsweetface
Got our bins to organize our homeschooling curriculum!! Each kiddo has their own. The big clear white bin is for our “family portion” of the different curriculums we are using. I suggest waiting until these bins go on sale or you have a 40% off coupon at Michael’s (there is a coupon out right now). I do not like spending money on “things” 🤷🏽‍♀️. Scroll right to see short video of a bin. #gettingorganized #getthingsdone #homeschooling #turnerup #newadventures

We must remain flexible and flow like water as we go through life. But not just physically flexible, flexibility should flow over to all areas of your life. Flexibility is a key component of being able to overcome and adapt to any situation or to accomplish any goal.

For me Fitness is a part of my everyday life.
But does not just mean having big muscles,
It means being active, quick, flexible, a healthy mind and a clear, quick thought process.
And an anti-aging formula. It can be defined in many terms.

Up a little late tonight getting a couple of things done while my sweet little ones sleep. I got my board started 😀. Tomorrow we will start our scripture memorization and also learning the books of the Bible. We are doing a slow start into homeschooling ... and I loved the idea of starting with this #thislivingministry #turnerup #homeschooling #hiswordistruth #ienjoythesenights #excitedfortomorrow
Comparison kills individuality and initiative.
Dream and follow your heart and play your own game.
Let no one discourage your ambitious attitude.
You don't need a fan club to achieve your goals. Be your own motivation.

This morning my two older girls got into a “back and forth” argument. When it was all said and done one of the girls followed the other one saying “sorry sorry sorry.... hey I said sorry can you please tell me you forgive me. Your suppose to say you forgive me”. This was a great teaching moment on forgiveness and asking for forgiveness. Things we discussed: 1. The releasing power of seeking forgiveness. 2. It’s our responsibility to reach out and take ownership of our actions. Stating “I am sorry for ....” is doing exactly that. God knows the intentions of our heart. 3. It’s not our responsibility to make sure the other person forgave us. 4. To live in a place where we struggle to forgive invites bitterness ... it’s drinking poison hoping the other person gets sick. It’s living in a prison. I explained to my daughter that by reaching a place that she could take responsibility for her actions and reach out .... she made the decision to release herself from the chains and walkout. 5. We have to allow the other person to travel their own unique journey. 6. To remember that we can always be in a place of prayer over the mending of the relationship. 7. To live boldly in compassion, grace, and mercy. 8. To choose love first 9. The difference of boldness/courages and being a doormat #lifelessons #issuesoftheheart #thislivingministry #turnerup #forgiveness #breakthechains #donotletthechainsform

Can I tell you guys how much I love this mama right here (yup the one holding the darts). We love her and her family. She is one of my homeschooling support mamas. She is way more than that. She is my sister in Christ (love doing ministry beside her), a best friend, and great role model for my children. @kastineysmith seriously puts together the best birthday parties. This year she did a carnival theme 😍. We had a blast!!! #sheinspiresmeinsomanyways #homeschoolingmamas #ministrymamas #birthdaypartyfun #doinglifetogether #thislivingministry #turnerup

So when you tell your husband you want a “old school” alarm clock because you are choosing to leave the phone out of the bedroom during sleep/rest time... well dang y’all ... I was not thinking this “old school” 😂😂😂😂.

Excited about our most recent delivery. The books that you see will be used with our History curriculum & Geography curriculum. The lesson planner  is a planner I saw another homeschooling mama used. It’s super SIMPLE and allows flexibility. Once I begin using it I will do a little review. These Pairs in Pears are super fun and will be used for our language arts curriculum. #homeschooling #turnerup #newadventures #orderin #diggingin #curriculum #20182019

Hubby and I were up late the other night in deep conversation (love these moments together). We were discussing the negative impact of “comparing”. Comparing is truly the thief of joy and will lead you into ungratefulness. I think in our social media driven society we have to be so mindful that we are not consistently looking at our neighbors yard .... where you are looking is where you will head. Look in the direction you want to go. Walk in the path the Lord has laid before you and your family. I love following all these awesome homeschooling and ministry families, and I need to be careful that watching for encouragement does not roll over to comparing ... it can be a slippery slope friends. “Be yourself because everyone else is already taken”. Comparing can lead to fear .... “I wish I could do a blog or start an instagram page but I know mine would not look like hers/theirs”. Who cares!!! Do it!!! You cannot live your life by comparison. You already measure up ... what expectations are you trying to meet? What are the roots of these expectations? No, yours will not look like theirs ... thank goodness we need You and not a copy of someone else ❤️😊. #turnerup #comparingthethiefofjoy #yourownpath #donotliveinfear #rootsofyourexpectations #doyou

Such a blessing to rock my baby to sleep instead of having him sleep in his car seat as I drive around town trying to make sure I pick up all the kids on time ..... #slowerpace #thesemoments #itsthesimplethingsinlife #homeschooling #turnerup
Ohhhh these moments today were hard. Our toddler soon to be 4 is trying out some new intense emotions. The BIG emotions she is expressing happen to be my shark music (circle of security parenting terminology). So here is a picture of US in the bathroom. She was needing a “comfort me moment” and “help me organize my emotions” moment (scroll to see COS road map). If you scroll you will see a picture of my calm app open to the music section ... you will see I selected the stress category. I literally put on the calming music and sat on the bathroom floor. I needed to calm my shark music so I could be the calm in the storm. #thesemomentsmatter #sharkmusicweallhearititshowwecopewithitthatmatters #itakecareofmesoicantakecareofher#parentingisarealthing  #circleofsecurityparenting #beingwith #turnerup

Our girls did not agree with our screen detox ... since they had some extra time on their hands we thought it would be good to do some mini presentations 😀. Here is our oldest presenting on the impact of drinking soda. We have another one tomorrow on the impact of too much screen time 😉 #screendetox #summerlearnig #homeschooling #turnerup #newadventures

Exercise like your body is the one thing that is actually yours, something you can mold and transform. It can never be taken away from you. Why would you never settle to let your body be anything but its best?

It's a a lonely road, on that Journey of goals and dreams. It's filled with hard knocks and lots of obstacles. All those on this road and journey are capable of success. You just have to believe in you.
