Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. Jeremiah 6:16
Welcome! I’m Jen McBride. I’m a Reformed Christian, wife and homeschooling mother to 8 children. I’m also the oldest of 8 and was homeschooled myself. I love the Lord, my husband and family, theology, tea, Charlotte Mason home education, England, Jane Austen, vintage clothing, history, planning (digital and paper), technology, books (especially old ones), thinking, researching, and writing.
This blog is dedicated to the pursuit of Truth, Goodness and Beauty as we seek, walk and rest in the “old paths” of Scripture.
I write here in my sparest of spare moments for mothers like me who are interested in how this applies to the nitty – gritty of daily home life. How does it practically play out in homeschooling, marriage, motherhood, homemaking and the day to day reality? How about when you add illness, weariness, trials and affliction to the mix?
I don’t have all the answers, but I know the One Who does; the One Who can make the impossible, possible; the One Whose strength is made perfect in weakness, and the Source of all that is true, good and beautiful. I invite you to ponder along with me as we seek His ways, care for our families, build our homes and raise our children for Christ’s Kingdom and glory.
“…See, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way…”
“…Ye shall find rest for your souls…”

“We are slowly finding our footing, finding ourselves walking more confidently on the old paths and finding the old way very much suited to our own new times” ~ Dr. Christopher Perrin
