I no longer have high speed so blogging just isn't the same. Well it's that time of the year when Satan starts whispering in my ear. I always listen to him it's the same thing why don't you not homeschool this year it would be so much easier for you. You could spend more time doing other things and it's such a pain to get all of your curriculum together not to mention you could save a lot of money. I do not think you have to home school just because you are a Christian but for my family it's what the Lord has for us. H e has asked me to homeschool my children and when I get all got up in the hassle of it or the money than I am in sin. I am in sin because I don't have the peace that he has gave me. I also don't want to listen I want to plug my ears and pretend I don't hear him.After all that is a lot easier to ignore than to listen.
Well like I said I hate this time of the year I start questioning my self and others around me.Does this happen to anyone else. ?
So this year I am not going their I am going to trust Him with all of my heart and know that if He is asking this from me he will show me the way and also provide for me. You will even give me the extra time that it takes. As you all prepare to either get ready to homeschool or get back into school I will be praying for you. O r better yet let's all pray for each other to be listening to the Lord in whatever he is asking from us.

I have never homeschooled all of my children, but just select ones on select years as I felt the Lord direct me. But I still went through the same thoughts at the beginning of each school year about where each of mine were and the struggles and difficulties that went along with them. (In my mind I always thought it would be so much easier if I homeschooled all of them.) Through much prayer and also working with dh, we made decisions for each child and yes, I could hear the "whispers." I learned that the louder the whispers against it, we were no doubt on the right track.

You know, last year was my first home school year and I was very excited...and even though I did have a few bad days here and there, I have to say, I really enjoyed it.
But for some reason, as I perpare to start again next week, I've heard those whispers! Maybe it's meeting all these other nice Christian moms who don't home school...and how it would be easier...ect. But I believe that God has still called me to homeschool for now. And I know that God will give us peace and joy in our obedience and even help to make it fun, if we just ask Him and trust Him!

Thanks for visiting my site, by the way! :)
