"I thrive on orderly routines, but homeschooling with a baby/toddler around taught me how to be more flexible, which I’ve tried to hang onto."
"It is possible to be depleted, and yet filled. Discouraged, and yet fortified. Exhausted, and yet rested."
"Every note highlights the story of salvation, from the fall into sin, to the anticipation and waiting of the Israelites, to the birth and death of Christ, and finally to the anticipation we have of Christ’s return."
"One day at lunch, hubby announced to our friends that we were going to homeschool. I promptly said, 'No way.'"
"What did this mean for our daughter? Each question that came to mind made me think of more questions. I did not know what to say or ask. I left the office holding back tears; feeling overwhelmed and scared."

"I love watching God’s plans for each of our children unfold before my very eyes, even when His plan ends up being vastly different than mine."
