Nine Years…Walking With the Lord Through the Homeschooling Journey

This week we will begin our ninth (gulp) year of homeschooling. For those who know my story, it is truly by the grace of God that I even write those words. To think that nine years ago, I was trembling this week at the thought of what I was doing…and I was in tears most of the week…questioning if I was doing the “right” thing. I said it would be for one year.

Well, one year turned into two, then three, and here we are at nine. What a journey it has been.

I have not only fallen in love with homeschooling, I have daily seen the blessings of this lifestyle for our family. We have grown as a family, and we have walked this journey clinging to God ever so tightly. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

The homeschooling journey has also given me opportunities I never would have dreamt up in my mind. To write, to speak, and to minister to other families.

What an amazing God I serve.

Looking back over the last nine years, I stand in awe. I am in awe of where I have been, where I am now, and look to the future with eyes opened wide, wondering where we will go.

Nine years. And thankful for each moment.

I am grateful most of all for choosing to walk the simple life…to keep my eyes focused on Him each day. While I fail many times, I make progress nonetheless. I yearn for even simpler many days, and I will continue to walk a step behind Him each day, letting Him lead the way.
