Walking Through Life TOGETHER

I'm thankful for the freedom we have to keep our children at home and be able to walk through life together.  I'm thankful that I get to be the one who teaches and then listens to them read and become over joyed when finally solving a difficult math problem.  I'm so thankful that our children are getting more than an education but learning how real life works and are surrounded by it on a daily basis.  I'm thankful for the diversity of personalities living in my home and that each one of us is learning how to model Christ-like love and grace toward one another.  I'm thankful for the desire the Lord has placed on my heart to view my home as a Holy sanctuary and to enter into it wholly.

"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name."  Psalm 100:4

I just wanted to say that I have been so encouraged by you. I am a young wife and mother of two little girls named Rylie and Macie. I found your blog by accident and I'm so glad I did! I am still growing in my faith and I am striving to be a good Godly wife and mother. Your blog has really been a blessing to me and I have learned so much from you. Thank you so much for that. May God bless you and your beautiful family!
