Welcome to the blog of Lighthouse Christian Homeschool!

This blog serves three purposes:

1. To have a place to 'jot down' the day to day happenings in our homeschool for our support teacher to see, in hopes that some of the things we do will fit nicely into the provincial learning outcomes.

2. To keep my family up to date on what we're 'up to'.

3. To glorify God.

So on that note, come on in!

Bless and You Will be Blessed

We were outside after lunch today helping Grandpa (Tim's Dad) shovel the snow off of our driveway. While he went to shovel the snow for the neighbour on one side of us (they are away and we are watching their house), the kids and I decided to go to our other neighbour and shovel the snow in their driveway. We had such fun working together, at first taking turns with the two shovels, then Christine helping Caleb push the shovel and Joshua helping Rebecca. From time to time Mommy would take over a shovel and do a section and before we knew it, the job was done and we went off to our backyard to build a snow fort. We were almost done the snow fort when our neighbour arrived with a tray of hot chocolate and cookies for all. She knowingly asked if we knew anything about a driveway being shovelled, and we said that we might know something about that. While the kids enjoyed their treat, she told me what a blessing it had been that we did that for them, since her husband is sick right now and she is too busy dealing with their 2 year old and baby to do it. It was such a blessing to us to be a blessing to them, and so great to let the kids see how we can put our love into action.


  1. Hi Natasha,
    Lovely pics! Love all this snow we're getting. Just found your website .. Been googling for local homeschool bloggers to get a sense of the homeschool scene in the lower mainland. Thank you for sharing your lives online. I'll be following you! :)

    If you get a chance, I'd love to know more about your story (ie why homeschool?)

  2. Way to go Millard family! Blessing others definitely has more rewards:) Mrs P

  3. Wasn't it fun to have some snow to play in? How wonderful that your children are learning to give to others in these ways Natasha!

    Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog and leave me a sweet note. May the LORD bless you as you do all for HIS glory and may HE give you daily all you need to raise up your family for HIM!

    Many blessings,

    P.S. I think your Christine's hair is pretty bobbed like it is...what a lovely young lady she is becoming! :)
