So many wonderful things going on and I just have to share!  I feel like singing that song...I'm so excited!  And I just can't hide it!   

This coming Monday, May 6th, we have an incredible, ginormous, beautiful giveaway going on for Mother's Day!  It's the Mother's Day Blessing hosted by Woman to Woman.  We have teamed up with some wonderful bloggers to bring you this amazing giveaway.  So be sure to check back on Monday to enter!  And I will let you in on a little secret, there is a special surprise for everyone!  But shhh!

Secondly, I was contacted a couple of months ago but a precious lady.  She asked me to be a contributor for a homeschool blog.  My first two thoughts were:  Ha!  I so do not have the time.  And: Are you kidding me?  I just had a huge fight with my son about doing his school work!  But God immediately begin to work in my heart.  The more excuses I made for saying no, the more I felt God telling me to say yes.

I feel extremely blessed to be able to homeschool my children. My husband and I have made sacrifices -financially- so that I can stay home and I count it a privilege and honor.  Does that mean I am great at it?  No, not really.  Does that mean our days are perfect?  Um, no.  Does that mean I have mastered homeschooling?  And again I say: Ha!  While our days are far from perfection, my sons despise reading, and my daughter is behind in algebra (I hate algebra just so you know), I am so blessed to homeschool.  I am learning along the way.  Each new year brings new challenges and new adventures.  I praise God for this opportunity to homeschool my four children.

I am greatly looking forward to working with Hilary and the Homeschool Toolbox team.  Each month I will post on different aspects of homeschooling from family devotions to fun family days.

So there you have it!  All my big news for the day!

  1. Nice to hear your words about homeschool...it is definitely hard and I'm just glad other people find it challenging too!

  2. You are so sweet, Jenifer! Thank you so much for following the Lord when He told you to say "Yes." You were one of the top ones on my list, and I felt like I was WAY out of my league asking you...but I am SO glad that you are writing with us! You have been a blessing to me already, and I know that will continue as we "work" together!

  3. I love it when God opens up unexpected doors for ministry -- excited for you! :)

  4. Sounds like great opportunities!


Thank you for stopping by and leaving your thoughts, I love hearing from you.
