A mom who has a blog and puts her self out there and knows she will get criticized. A mom who doesn't have the best writing skills but still chooses to share her heart. A mom that people watch closely and judge. A mom that knows not everyone agrees with her. A mom that gets emails about what she is doing wrong. A mom that has horrible spelling and admits it. A mom that is doing her best but often doubts about the quality of education her children are receiving. A mom that sometimes thinks she spends more time as a referee than a mom/teacher. A mom that has a lot going on and feels a bit over whelmed. A mom who remembers the school around the corner that is in a good district, it's free and it's convenient. A mom who lives in a world where temptations of satisfying self are everywhere and she is often tempted!
A mom that has a big fear.
A mom that also feels convicted in her own heart about sending them. A mom that knows it's more than just academic education. A mom that tries to take one day at a time. A mom who tries to just be one day smarter and one step ahead of her kids. A mom who tries to measure all her decisions with the Word of God. It is the truth and the standard on which she lives by.
A mom that really isn't even organized. A mom who doesn't have an extra dose of patience. A mom that makes mistakes. A mom that really has no special talents that equip her to be a good mom much less a supermom. A mom with no credentials or experience. (Heck, I didn't even know how to change a diaper before I had Aut , so really I didn't even qualify to be a mom, or a wife...I was lucky if I knew how to boil water when I got married at 19) A mom that all she has is God. A mom that knows God is enough!
A mom that knows God never promised us that homeschooling and nurturing the souls of our children would be easy. In fact, He never promised serving Him in any area of life would be easy.
A mom that knows everyone who has been given much, much will be required. A mom that wants to make sure her little "arrows" are finished. Arrows that are straight, sharp, and sure of their mark and make an impact.
A mom that knows that her child's very souls are at stake, and doesn't want to risk having them taught hours of contrary to God's truths. A mom that knows the school is an atmosphere that denies God's existence.
A mom that can take it lightly but chooses to take this season in her life very serious. A mom that has a goal in mind. A mom that is willing to die to herself daily to reach her goal with God's help.
A mom that tries to remember Gal. 6:10 "Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary"
and A mom that knows she can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens her, even when the world tells her she can't.
