What is this blog all about?
Anchored In His Grace is all about sharing. Sharing with you how God is revealing his grace to me during the ups and downs of every day life. As much as I am enjoying writing, I’m much better at simply sharing. Sharing how God shows up during the most challenging moments of the day. Sharing how God tells me, “It’s ok if you’re not doing everything everyone else is doing!” Sharing how God teaches me to simplify what seems to be impossible. My hope is that you will find encouragement for the day, realize you don’t have to follow a formula to do great things, or maybe even laugh a little.
What you will find at Anchored In His Grace!
Because God’s grace impacts every area of our lives, I share about various topics. If the Lord leads me to take a deep breath, and relax, then I’ll share it with you. Whether that’s through homeschooling, parenting, marriage, or even recipes, God’s grace is ever-present in every aspect of our lives.

We can all use some great marriage tips, here are my best Tips From 14 Years of Marriage, I’m positive it’ll challenge you towards a God honoring marriage.
What about homeschooling? I spent some time collaborating my experience using different homeschool curriculums here: 5 Years of Homeschool Curriculum. Homeschooling is tough enough, but with the overwhelming amount of information out there, simply deciding on a curriculum can be very stressful! I highlighted my experience with Classical Conversations, Saxon Math, Reading, and Handwriting. I’m hopeful it will give you some insight into various curriculums in your own homeschool research, and possibly decrease the stress level a little.

Who is the author behind the blog?
This is me, Caroline, and I’ve been married for 14 years, have five children (ages 9, 8, 6, 3, and 2), and I’ve been homeschooling for five years. Although I’m far from perfect, I still seek to honor God in my home by ministering to my family, my friends, and now to others through my words. I am actively involved in my church by leading our Kid Zone Worship ministry during our church’s worship service. I also direct our local Classical Conversations homeschool community. In my spare time I…wait, I don’t think I have any spare time! Ha! When I’m not falling asleep from exhaustion, I really enjoy reading a good fiction novel, or sharing life with a good friend. I love nature, in particularly the beach, and enjoy the heat of the summer.
My husband and I knew each other when we were children, but reconnected while in college. Jumping into marriage as college students, after a short engagement definitely had its challenges. But every year proves that God is good, and through his guidance we have grown closer together. Through his grace, we’re learning how to sacrifice, serve, and love each other fully. We make once a month date nights a priority, and my husband enjoys challenging me towards things such as the rope climb he installed in the back yard. Yep, a rope climb! On those days that I don’t think I can accomplish the great work at hand, he’s my biggest encourager. Half of what I do, I wouldn’t have done if it weren’t for my husband declaring, “Oh, you can do that!” I simply can’t imagine life without either my husband, or The Lord!
These are my precious blessings! After 5 years of marriage, we finally started having children. I was very reluctant, and was not looking forward to having children. However, once we started we just kept going. My oldest loves to dig in the dirt, and build creations. My eight year old loves crafting anything with her hands, and playing outdoors with her brothers. My six-year-old, well, he’s my scary child; he loves stunts, and is absolutely fearless. My three-year old is quiet, and loves everything mommy. My two-year old…well, she’s two. Need I say more? They each love learning in their own way, and each child proves to be uniquely created by God, expressing themselves each in a different way. They each bring joy, excitement, and a touch of crazy to our home. Our cup truly is overflowing!
