I think homeschool moms often feel misunderstood. Heck don't we all feel that way at times? When it comes to choosing to educate at home (whatever your reasons), opinions start flying and mamas suddenly feel shushed from sharing both the deep joy and the hard reality of how it's going.
Since I'm a truth teller, here's the truth. I'm only speaking for myself. I don't know your story.
God knows my heart is bent towards selfish ways. He knows with my personality I am not likely to spend my time wisely. I need constant and repetitive reminders that I need Him more than anything. Homeschooling keeps my mirror in check with my Creator. Honestly, I have to deal with my own heart and my own sin more when we are constantly together. (Yes I hire babysitters sometimes because hello #selfcare ). Homeschooling tears me apart and then grows me in ways I would never get the opportunity otherwise.
This post was going to be how we're doing after week one. Somehow it turned into why we homeschool. Guess I needed to remind myself and maybe some of you too? #motherhoodissanctifying
