Sonlight is committed to missions. Missions is also something that permeates our homeschool curriculum. And I was pleased to be reminded this morning that St. Patrick was a missionary to Ireland. It's good to be reminded of heroes of the faith. And if wearing green gives us another reason to remember the goodness of God, to pray for our brothers and sisters serving the unreached, and to spur us on to share the love of God with those around us... sign me up <smile>.
I was also encouraged to read an article on how productivity is highest if you limit the hours worked. This absolutely applies to homeschooling. We don't have to spend a certain number of hours with our seats in a seat to get our schooling done. Rather, we are rewarded for working efficiently and well. While "some people think being busy, or even simply present, equals productivity," we as homeschoolers can focus on "achieving results. Period."
If you're interested in seeing other things that make me smile or make me think, check out some of my Other Posts of Note from this week.
Have you been feeling particularly productive or missions-minded lately?
