The Worth of a Challenge

If you give a child a fish, you feed him for a day.
If you teach a child to fish, you feed him for a lifetime.
But if you teach a child to learn, you feed him for a lifetime
and he doesn't have to just eat fish.

About me: Hi, I am Sarah, a former Navy rocket scientist turned stay at home mom. I love homeschooling my kids and helping them learn the honor courage and commitment I did with the love of Jesus Christ. With each step of the way I like to blog and share it.

I love reading so don't forget to comment so I can see the wonder of your fabulous world too!

  4. You were really a rocket scientist? I'm glad you posted the link to the prize page, because I had no clue where to find it until someone on Twitter told me where to find it! LOL
