I am a homeschool mom. If someone asks me who I am or what I do, my response is a homeschool mom. Is that my identity? My identity is in Christ. I am a Christian homeschool mom. There is so much more to me than just being a homeschool mom. I’ve lived not a boring life. I would say a crazy life, but others may just say it’s a life. I’ll let you decide what you think of my life and maybe through this blog you can see that our identity is so much more than the first thing that comes to our minds.
According to my youngest, I am old, so incredibly old. I feel truly like I am just entering life. I’m in my 40’s, married to a man that I wouldn’t trade for anything and have five kids. I’ve lived in four states and two countries on two different continents. No we are not a military family, we are a Christ abiding family that is just crazy enough to never tell God no. I could just say we are a missionary family, but shouldn’t we all be missionaries if we are Christians? I have homeschooled for 14 years now, in four different states and two countries on two different continents.
This blog has been on my heart for some time now. When we were missionaries in Guinea Bissau I blogged, but it was for our supporters to know what was happening in our lives. Coming back to the states I have had a blog on my mind, but let’s be honest here, re-entry wasn’t pretty for me. I wasn’t in a state of mind to blog. What would’ve come out of me probably wouldn’t have been to pretty. So here I sit, almost 6 years after coming back to the states and I am starting a blog.
In starting a blog you are supposed to have a focus of what the blog will be about. Honestly, I have no idea what this blog will be about. Can I just say life? It is going to be about life, my life, our life, what is happening, what I am thinking, and what I might be struggling with. So, if you are interested, jump on this wild ride I call life and gather what you may from what comes from these fingers.
