I was born and raised in Michigan, moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana about 15 years ago and met and fell love with my hubby about 12 years ago. We have been very blessed to have each other as we build our lives and family together with God on a solid foundation. The road has been broken and blessed, but we grow stronger every day.
In 2009 we decided to start homeschooling our oldest daughter, hasta luego comfort zone. We started homeschooling not to keep our kids at home or to shelter them, but simply because we felt led to. We were actually super excited about her school career getting underway and had signed her up at a private Christian preschool. But then God! Yep, He had different plans for our family.
So off on the journey we go
I didn’t know the first thing about homeschooling or anyone who did. I wish there was a Homeschooling 101 course I could take or Awesome Facebook Group to join, but alas none of that. Yeah, seriously I was alone and clueless. So here I go walking blindly on faith into what God had called us too. So scary…..ahhhhh! But He was and is with us every step of the way. I started to see the fruits of it right away.
We have settled into a Charlotte Mason inspired, eclectic homeschooling style and are loving it. Sonlight is our curriculum of choice, but we’ve dabbled in others like Heart of Dakota and even Abeka.
Looking back I couldn’t imagine it any other way. I’m not saying it has been easy, it has been the hardest, yet most wonderful thing I have ever done in my entire life.
Then Came the Blog
He not only led me to homeschooling, but He called me further yet into starting this very blog (April 2009). Yet another clueless adventure that has turned out to be nothing short of amazing. I have met so many amazing moms and been able to give encouragement from the comfort of my home to so many people all around the world.
How cool is that!
