I'm about to start on a journey, an unexpected journey.
I'm doing something I declared on many occasions to my husband I would NEVER do. Never say never, so they say.
Starting tomorrow I am officially a homeschool mom, there, I said it! I am homeschooling my 6 year old son & pre-schooling my 4 year old daughter this year.
Many things led up to this choice, including lots of prayer and direction from The Lord. So, we are starting this adventure as a family.
I had never planned on teaching my kids at home, but my husband, my son & my sister in law, Heidi put it on my radar. When I started to consider it as an option for this school year I was already doing homework most evenings with Drew (then in Kindergarten) and it was suggested I could be done schooling him in an hour each day......I started thinking "Maybe this could work!" I really feel like God has led us to this decision for our family at this moment & I'm excited to start this new chapter in our life.
Am I tad worried that I'm not super qualified to teach? Yep! Or that I don't have the patience to do this? For sure! There are doubts swimming around in my mind. This is a new world to me, but luckily the one who created the world called me to this. I may not be capable by myself to do this homeschool thing, but Christ in me totally is. I will be relying on him heavily for help & wisdom throughout this school year. If He brought me here, He will help me & I truly believe that. And the same goes for you. If God has called you out on an unexpected road that you've never traveled on before, cast the fear & doubt aside & trust The Lord. "But with God everything is possible." Matt 19:26b
So, here we are embarking on this unlikely journey tomorrow! Prayers would be greatly appreciated! I plan to share the curriculum we are using & ideas/updates along the way. Also I will keep posting on our family life, faith inspiration & food when I can! I'd love for you to check back in when you can :)
What about you? Is your family trying something new this year? Has God called you out of your comfort zone? I would enjoy hearing of your new adventure!
