Butternut Squash Soup with Organic Squash from Hometown Harvest

Butternut Squash Soup with Organic Squash from Hometown HarvestButternut Squash Soup is something I really enjoy eating. It is not a dish I have ever tried making.

Captain America The Winter Soldier: A Must See! #CaptainAmerica

Captain America The Winter Soldier: A Must See! #CaptainAmerica   Captain America The Winter Soldier is the number 1 movie in the nation and the film with the largest April box office! And for good reason too. From start to finish Captain America is packed with action, drama, and a little comedic relief.  Chris Evans, Samuel L Jackson, and Scarlett Johansson are exactly what you would expect- awesome. I will admit I wasn't always team Black Widow, especially as a kid, [more]

Welcome to my blog!

Hi everyone welcome to Teachable Mommy!

This blog is for all the moms (and dads too) trying their hardest to raise their children to grow to be the best young men and women they can be. This is a daily sometimes tiring job, but if we step back and listen they are teaching us too. Sometimes I wonder who learns more!

I hope that by reading this blog you will get some encouragement in your daily walk as a parent. Believe me I have not arrived at some exalted place of parenting with all the answers. Just like you I get tired, miss some teaching moments, or completely blow it! What’s important is how we learn from these mistakes and to forgive ourselves for not being perfect. Like we tell our children, “it’s ok, just try again!” Thank goodness our children are very forgiving and don’t hold our bad days against us.

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.” -Henry Ford

So here’s to not getting old!
