Well, it's that time of year again. School is getting ready to start, the big yellow busses are getting ready to start clogging up the highways again. We went to the kids' open house at the schools tonight and it discouraged me so much.

Charlie and I have had very heavy hearts the last few weeks regarding us homeschooling Brookelyn. We have spent much time in prayer about this and have decided that that is what God is telling us that we need to do with her. So, in my not wanting to disobey my Heavenly Father, that is what we are going to do. Granted, she is only 1 and there are still years left before she should actually begin school...but doesn't learning begin from birth? So anyhow, due to the situation with the other 3 children, living part-time with their mom we're not sure how everything is supposed to work here.

We are feeling the need to homeschool them as well but don't know how she would take even the suggestion of this. We are praying earnestly about this situation and would welcome your prayers as well.

I whole-heartedly believe that God is calling me to homeschool my children because of a conversation I had with some friends a few weeks back saying there was "NO WAY" I could ever do that! God apparently has other plans for us and as inadequet as I feel about holding my child's education in my hands I know that if God is calling us to do this then He will supply me with the knowledge that I need to educate my child the way that He sees fit.

Please continue to keep our family in your prayers as we embark on this journey!!! This is going to take ALOT of discipline on my part as I am NOT organized at all and know that I will need to be way more organized than I am for this. I like to plan things so maybe that will help some? Anyway, I will let you go for now, just wanted you to know that I covet your prayers and am pretty excited to see what God has in store for our family!


  1. I will be praying. We had our moms groups meet last night, I wish I would have know you could have came with me and met some of the other moms:) Let me know if you have any questions.

  2. Hey Girl. I am praying for your family. Remember I was home schooled. It is very doable and I believe in it 100%. As I don't think my children will be due to Michael wanting his kids to be in public school but I am praying at least maybe a private christian school. Start with little Miss Brookelyn they are sponges and she can learn so much now! I am here for support if you need anything!

  3. Just know that if God is leading you down this path, you can trust Him. Take it one day at a time. There's no need to get completely organized and planned all at once. Rome wasn't built in a day.
    Just trust and smile and go forth one step at a time. Slowly but surely. Have fun and relax! :-)
    I will be praying for you...
