There have been many things that have come my way in my 34 years of life that have taught me lessons, many tough, unforgettable and life-changing. I want to be wise and make sure to not forget or let go of those lessons learned and be able to grow as a person.
And not only that, but to pass that wisdom on to my children so someday they may be better than my husband and me combined. At least one can try and hope and pray.
If he believed in me and my Heavenly Father believed in me because He gave me this calling, then who am I to doubt? In I went! I took the plunge and have never looked back.

Are You Considering Homeschooling?
If you have been contemplating homeschooling and have lots of questions (How do I get started? Is it right for our family? What textbooks do I use? Do I need textbooks at all? What method of teaching is best for my children? and so many more), just know that it is ok. You have more time than life to decide.
The four things I can tell you are:
1. Pray. Ask God if this is the right thing to do for your family right now.
2. Consider the pros and cons. Make a list and a tentative schedule. Pray over it. Sleep on it.
3. Look for support around you. Get your family on board with it. Find other homeschooling families in the area. Find co-ops, look at what your church does with homeschoolers, ask local community centers and libraries to find out more. Join groups on Facebook and other media outlets that can offer support.
4. Be honest. What do you honestly feel deep down inside about homeschooling?
Feel free to email me if you have questions, doubts, or simply need support in prayer. This is a big deal and it is a big decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
I hope this post has helped you see homeschooling from a mom’s perspective. And even if our points of view are different or our reasons for homeschooling aren’t the same, I am positive that we can find common ground in the fact that our hearts are for our children and their best interest is paramount. Be blessed!
