#65: Wood Edition

Jen at Diary of 1 has posted this week's carnival... 68th Carnival of Homesteading - the putting up wood edition

thcWelcome to the 68th Carnival of Homesteading. It’s that time of year…fall is here with a chill in the air, and winter stands at the door. We’ve been putting up wood. There is a comforting warmth of a wood fire that can’t be matched, and I’m so pleased we have this opportunity in our home. Dad and the kids have been busy.

Next week’s Carnival of Homesteading will be hosted by Oak Hill Homestead. You can submit your homesteading blog posts here by next Sunday, 9 p.m. EST.

The Annual Blog Awards....

I supposed you’ve all heard, well at least some, that the annual Homeschool Blog Awards are now accepting nominations? I heard I was already nominated for my personal site and I’m honoured, but I can’t go into the polls because I write on the site. I had to pick between helping out the team on HSBA or being in the awards, and I chose to stay on to help. You can help me though by considering nominating these choices. Some of them you may have heard of, but some you may not so have a look and consider nominating them with me. They each need three separate nominations to be entered to go to the actually voting.

Have you seen FIREPROOF? We went to see Fireproof yesterday and it was completely wonderful. A very profound (ahem tear-jerker) movie that I encourage young adults and couples to go see! Wow. Kirk Cameron did a fantastic job, it was a great film for a b-budget, and astounded Hollywood by coming at #4 at the box-office opening weekend when they weren't even expecting it to hit #10!

image 1 Make a Date with FIREPROOF This Weekend
It’s the weekend ... what a great time to go see a movie!

If you have seen FIREPROOF, chances are you know a couple that could benefit greatly from the movie’s story. This weekend is a great time to invite them to go with you to see FIREPROOF.

If you haven’t seen FIREPROOF, what are you waiting for? This is the movie that is touching lives, reigniting marriages, and surprising Hollywood insiders!


image 2 The Impact of FIREPROOF
This story was submitted by Keith on

“My wife of 13 years had handed me divorce papers on the Monday evening before the movie came out. The script for the movie could have been written about us. We are both good people, we were just not being good to each other. I got a call from a friend on Saturday insisting that my wife and I go see this movie. I was afraid to even ask her, but I did. We went to the afternoon movie on Sunday.

“Wow ... it was us on the screen. We went home and talked about a lot of things and both said that we were sorry. We decided to stay together, to start going to church together again, and to treat each other the way we should have been all along. My wife called her lawyer on Monday and told him that she didn't want a divorce and I did the same. We ordered The Love Dare book for both of us on Tuesday, and the marriage kit as well. Thank you so much for showing us that we aren't the only couple with the problems that these people had and for giving us a new direction to go in. I love my wife and am looking forward to our new life together!”
