Home Education Resource Recommendations

Curtis and I are home education parents. This has been true for 20 years now, and we have had our glory rides of enjoyment with our children through the years. We have also had moments of defeat. We have thought of putting our children in public school, and we would if the need truly arose; however, it has not been necessary for us at this time and I enjoy teaching. I am thankful we can continue this venture still. I am teaching my last two children to read and it is a joy every single time. Edward is our tenth child, and he is in the first grade. Esther is our ninth child and she is in the third grade. She is a slow reader due to issues with un-diagnosed ADD or ADHD.

There are very few home school curricula I recommend at this time. Christians by and large are very political, judgmental, and they put too many expectations upon their children in the home school world where I have resided for my 20 years in Austin, Texas. There are a variety of reasons for that; however, it is generally speaking true that these Christians are what I term as “Baptist”. And that group of people are having issues of difficulty that I expound upon in other places of my writing on the Internet if anyone is interested. Being a prophetess and home school mother at the same time is an oxymoron to most, if not all, of the Christian world of America. I am not known in my home town, and that will be explained in this article.

Managers of Their Homes is a book, along with scheduling materials and chore packs, which proves helpful in the home school setting. I have seen a little bit of how the Maxwell family is because I used to be a member of the MOTH board before 2008. They are humble. They are very pure. And we have the Duggar family to show us where that gets a family in the United States. As a matter of fact, the Duggar family recommends these materials.

I ordered this book again in August but then managed to manage my large and complicated home school world before the materials came to me. I am  going to keep the materials. Who knows; perhaps some day the Maxwells will understand me and I will understand them. It is possible; all things are possible with God.

Teri Maxwell has dealt with depression. Her materials are very helpful in accomplishing the near impossible of home schooling, keeping up with a large family, and loving ourselves as mothers. It’s a good life, and I think the Maxwell family has found a good balance even as we have.

There are two places which I enjoy as a home school mother to purchase my curriculum:

Rainbow Resource

Alpha Omega Home School

If anyone needs PreK-High School on the computer, another place to look to is Time 4 Learning. I have used them when I was so busy as a prophetess, I couldn’t do the teaching I enjoy.

I never know when I cannot teach and so must ask the children to help one another. Curtis fills in gaps in our home school in the evening after work, and this year he is handling Algebra. I appreciate Teaching Textbooks above second grade in Math.

Mom and I have home schooled for many years now; these two ladies are my first two daughters who graduated our school and are in the work/school world now.

The Essentials of Dreams & Visions by John Paul Jackson

The-Essentials-of-Dreams-and-Visions_lg

I am thoroughly enjoying this six CD set concerning understanding both the dreams and visions of me and also of my whole family.

I am a mother who is gifted and called by God in a certain way. All of my family is called and gifted by God in a certain way. And I am talking to you every bit as much as I am talking about me and my family here in Austin, Texas.

I know many, many people who yearn to hear from God. Sometimes, they don’t even know that is what they are desiring, but I know that is what their heart-cry is because I am a prophetess and I can discern it. This is why I weep inside all the time: so many people worldwide want with all their heart to hear how God is speaking to them; however, the drastic times we live in preclude a lot of beautiful messages the I AM sends to us all in this day and age.

And Streams Ministries International is one of a very few ministries that I know of who help people of all types in all callings of their lives learn how to be taught and comforted in the Holy Spirit through the gifting we all have been gifted with by God the Father, Himself. We are humans created in the Image of God. Love yourself enough today to see how special you are in the Father’s Eyes, please.

I invite everyone far and wide to listen to Mr. Jackson’s teaching in this series and in anything else this ministry has to offer. Their work is humble, accurate, and from the Heart of God.

My First Two Books Are Released to Second Editions

Now my first two books are released to Tate Publishing for Second Editions. They have been re-titled, and my first three offerings are a three volume set of testimony about the return of Jesus Christ to the earth according to John 14:1-6:

Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know. Thomas saith unto him, Lord, we know not whither thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

This three volume set is titled: A White Stone: one pilgrim’s journey; A Prayer for America: a Christian feminist perspective; and, Four Blood Moons: a prophetic testimony.

I hope people can be encouraged by these books to understand how much God loves humankind, how beautiful the sacrifice of Jesus Christ is to us, and how beautiful it is going to be when Jesus returns. Please, if you haven’t thought about receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior, I ask you to think on it today. If you haven’t read the love of God toward you in the Bible, I ask you to pick one up, read the Psalms, and then read the Gospel of John to see how Jesus Christ came to die, and rise again, just for you.

I love you, too. I pray for you daily. Please read my story to see how it is so when it comes out through Tate Publishing. God bless you!

Four Blood Moons: a prophetic testimony

I just turned in my new memoir, Four Blood Moons: a prophetic testimony into Tate Publishing to begin the edit process.

I am very surprised, actually. I thought I would not publish this book. I have mixed feelings about it because I had to hit American Christianity so hard it still makes me very sad.

But I have set my face to be happy now because this book is a very weighty testimony of a seven year tribulation according to the entire book of Revelation in the Bible written by the Apostle John.

And I know beyond any shadow of doubt that Jesus Christ is coming again in the Flesh after having written through that tribulation. It may not be in my lifetime that my Love Jesus Christ comes again, but that doesn’t really matter to me all in all.

He is coming, and as a Christian daughter, wife, and mother who is 49 years old, I can say that I take heart because Jesus has overcome the world all glory to God.

If anyone would like to follow the publication process of this book along with my blog work, please follow me on Twitter. I’m @BloodMoonsRise. I have a public FB page as Cara Ann. And then there is Google Plus where I’m Cara Coffey.

However, for this book Four Blood Moons, I reverted to my maiden name because it is a story that encompasses my whole life and I needed to write as a daughter, or as I call myself in the book sometimes, a “Little Sister” to all of humanity.

I have prayed for everyone worldwide across the seven year tribulation recorded in this book, and what is more, I repented for the worldwide Christian Church as well all glory to God. I am very tired today releasing the publication information for this book.

Here are some pictures of our lives here at this home place in Austin, Texas.

This is my dog, Valentine. He and I walk in our neighborhood as I keep watching and praying for Jesus Christ to come to us on the earth.

Dreams Made Easy by Barb Dechant

Barb Dechant wrote Dreams Made Easy Volume 1 to help us understand how to hear God in our dream life. Here is what she says in her Introduction to this lovely first volume, and I hope some day she will have the time to give us another one!

“This is a guide to the symbolic language of dreams. In our daily lives we use “word pictures” to communicate and to receive communication. Certain words may make you think of a picture. Conversely, pictures are described by words. We use them in everyday life. Why not in dreams?

There are dreams throughout the Bible, dreams that were given by God and interpreted to bring God’s message to the dreamer. God speaks your language. If you are a farmer God may speak to you in farm language. If you are a mechanic He may speak to you in mechanical terms…….” (p. viii)

Amen, Barb! And if you are a mama like Barb and me, He will speak to you as a mama. It is the same for daughters, sons, fathers, and grandparents, how special is that!

Finding My Cross by Shane Davis

Finding My Cross by Shane Davis is an excellent book of testimony which can and should wake up all of us to the importance of choosing to pick up our cross and follow Jesus Christ according to Luke 9:22-24 among other places in the New Testament record:

Luke 9:22-24  Saying, The Son of man must suffer many things, and be rejected of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be slain, and be raised the third day. And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it.

If anyone does not believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ, I beg you to read this book and consider accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. God loves you, and He sent His Son Jesus Christ to die and rise again for you. Jesus is returning, and before that beautiful eventuality, we have disciples of Jesus Christ who teach us, inspire us, and testify to us how indeed, Jesus loves us and He is coming again.

Suffering is not in vain. This is what Mr. Davis teaches us in this book and with their lives as a family at Anchored In Christ. I have observed them from a distance for several years though I’ve never met this dear family. I know my testimony here is true. I also know Anchored In Christ to be a white stone, and none of us know this dear family’s name before the Father except them according to Revelation 2:16-17:

Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

I watch this family rejoice in suffering even after this book was written. They are people who are watching, praying, and giving their whole lives on this earth for the Kingdom of God, and they pray for all of us worldwide. It is my personal prophetic opinion God sent His apostle Shane Davis into the Valley of the Shadow of Death called Jail in the United States of America for a great redemption ministry which perhaps may be seen some day, but not yet. In the meantime, I encourage us to pray with Mr. Davis by reading his book. Let us allow his ministry to be heard as two or more gather in the Name of Jesus Christ to pray for all people world-wide in and out of prisons.

Anchored In Christ is an excellent example of prophetic ministries which follow Jesus Christ around doing His will according to Revelation chapter 14. I will say no more; however, what I will do is allow the back of the book Finding My Cross to explain to us what this white stone ministry is all about:

Finding My Cross takes you to the lonely journey and desperate quest of Shane Davis. From ministry, disease, prison, and his now, he shares the truths of his journey. He takes you behind the scenes of his own life of moments in the darkened belly of the whale, scorched desert sands, and floods of his own tears. He takes you through the fire, wind, and silence of God. Unmasked, he takes you from his alley of despair and brokenness and he leads you to the avenues of hope and glory…..teaching us all what it truly means to take up our cross.

At an early age, Shane knew that there was a call of awakening on his life. He’s not been called to be a settler but a pioneer. Sanctified, anointed, and ordained of God, he goes forth a trail-blazer for Christ, Holy Spirit, and the call on his life.

He is the founder of Anchored In Christ Ministries (AICM) where he serves as evangelist, seer, singer, songwriter, and author. He’s not about denomination or religion, but relationship. His prayer is for Holy Fire to fall and bring us all into a shifting position in these winds of change.”
