This blog is my attempt to document our busy but BLESSED lives raising and educating our children for His glory. A child of God, wife to one, and mom to 6 fabulous kids. We are in our 15th year of homeschooling using a Classical ~ Literature based approach.

Come along for the good, the bad & the ugly.

Dear Homeschool Mom... You are ENOUGH

Dear Homeschool Mom,
I just want to tell you that you are enough. Enough for your God, enough for your husband, enough for your children. There may be days when that yellow bus that goes down your street looks so enticing... you may even want to flag it down.

But know that you are enough! You are doing enough. After all it is a marathon and not a sprint. You do not have to be Pinterest perfect, just be YOU! Because those who truly matter in your life know that YOU are enough. Stay the course and Do the Work of Homeschooling!

I hope this has made some kind of sense to you. I wrote it as a reminder for myself because even as a "veteran" homeschooler with 9 years under my belt, I struggle with being enough. And the weird thing is that as I am penning this blog I don't even know what "enough" is, but maybe, just maybe, I do.

This year I am following this adaptation of Charlotte Mason's motto: I am, I can, I ought, I will

"I am a child of God. 
I ought to do His Will.

I can do what He tells me.

By Grace alone I will.

Your "enough" is probably something totally different than mine but keep the faith that the One who called you to do this task of homeschooling will guide you through. The days may seem long but the time and memories will last forever in the hearts of your children. Thanks for joining me on the Back to Homeschool Blog Hop this week.

Be encouraged as you start your new year!
