How Homeschooling Forces Parental Level Up

While the reason for homeschooling is as varied as the number of families homeschooling, there is one commonality amongst all of them; which is the move towards autonomous thinking and the taking on of personal responsibility for the sake of the child's education. The reason why this topic interests me so deeply is because I have been promoting the 'leveling up' process for women's personal lives for several years and its extension into family life is only fitting and a given. You may be wondering what the leveling up process is. Leveling up is the shifting and elevation of mindset away from the state of being that includes a total lack of self-care and self-love, as well as engaging in relationships and activities which are devaluing and destabilizing to overall well-being. ...

Charity Begins At Home

Our 8 year old has trouble wrapping her mind around cleaning out her room and often takes hours working on one dresser of clothing. Our 13 year old has trouble deciding how she wants to tweak the arrangement of her room and has been at a stand still in regards to moving the project to completion. Our 16 year old just needs a good ole fashion, full on, clean out demolition service and the completion of her RATHER artistic wall decor that she started months ago. I've got to finish spray painting a gold antique-style finish on the artwork frames I want to hang in our newly redesigned dining room. Hubby would like to get the tall ladder and clean the sky window and, of course, I have a couple of projects for him such as hanging a few plants from the ceiling. We'd also...

Men, Bring Life to Extraordinary, Outstanding, Uplifting, Family Traditions Symbolized by Your Family Name

Over the course of our lives there are many things we have choice over.  We can choose our friends, career path, where we want to live.  Live a life of self-determination.  In life there are some things for which we have very little control over, our skin color, facial features, height, stature.  Our parents through their biological creation give us their genes.  And these genes express themselves in a very random nature.  It is what it is.  Besides our genetic make-up, our parent(s) also give us something for which they have full control over.  That is our name.  What is a name.  It is a title.  A descriptor.  Something for which we grow into at the youngest of age.  We become attached to it.  It becomes attac...

A Successful Family Can Come from You!

A Successful Family Can Come from You!

If you don't come from a successful family, a successful family can come from you! ~ Ed Mylett This is a wonderful time to be alive. Technology puts wealth at our fingertips and yet for some people, wealth is as intangible and far fetched as it was in the 1800s. Although it used to take families hundreds of years to accumulate substantial wealth, it always starts in the mind of one person. This is why the mind is the golden key or gateway to success. It is so precious that ideological wars are waged for control of it. If we align ourselves with the victim's state of mind, we have lost the battle, not only for ourselves, but most likely for generations to come. There is so much at stake here, particularly for those who have felt disadvantaged or have historically lacked access. ...

Families Need Stay-At-Home Moms Now More Than Ever

This is a loaded statement and opinion of mine that actually requires far more articles than this one. To get started, I'd like to share the fact that I am a Wife and Homemaker and have experienced firsthand the experience and benefits. In the next couple of days, I will write separate articles for each bullet point and hyperlink them to this article. Being a Stay-At-Home Wife and Mom is what I desired for many years prior to being able to achieve it and because of that, I'd like to delve into the personal transformation that what was necessary for me during the time that I was a single, divorced mother: I had to release myself from the mental, emotional and energetic virus that is radical feminist ideology,I had to heal from certain traumas associated with the past. These traumas...

A 5 Point Strategy for Creating And Building Family Wealth

Article by Linda Davis Taylor, author of The Business of Family: How to Stay Rich for Generations When you think of your family, mission statement and strategy are probably not the first terms that come to mind. But, as I explain in my new book, The Business of Family: How to Stay Rich for Generations, when families are organized with a business mindset, parents set up their kids for future success. I’ve found that families who truly understand wealth tend to invest in their families with as much discipline as they do with their business. Here are five strategies for your family to use to create and keep prosperity: 1. Come up with a family mission statement. Business leaders know that if they don't deliver on their promises, they'll lo...

The Value of Good Fathers and Parenting

@repmialove and @realcandaceowens on the VALUES, FATHERS and good parenting. Both women are who they are because of the presence in their childhood of MEN (fathers and grandfathers) who had character, believed in family and good work ethic. Mia Love's parents came to the US with $10 and put three children through college with no handouts. Candace Owen's granddad grew up sharecropping, like my own mother who is about the same age as Candace's granddad. Her granddad now owns the land he grew up on. The message both stories provide for us is the belief in SELF, God and family. Raising little girls, I am especially keen to ensure they have the mindset that will one day be attracted to GOOD men, to family men. In order for this is occur, they will ...
