Thanks for your Support!

I was really worried about how my post about putting my kids in public school after homeschooling would go over. I have this complex that causes me to worry too much about what other people think, and even though I’m working on it, I still worry.

However, my readers have proven to be some of the greatest people on earth. Out of all the responses I got, I only had 2 that hurt my heart (and neither of them are listed in the comments – one came via email and the other came face to face). One suggested that I never should have considered homeschooling in the first place – in all capital letters. The other was a homeschooling mom of 5 herself who couldn’t understand why I would throw them into public school. Two very opposite ends of the spectrum, that’s for sure. And even though those responses did hurt, I must – and will – stand by the fact that I know that this is what God wants me to do. It doesn’t matter that I want to keep them home and shelter them for the rest of their lives. He wants me to let them go. To allow them to live their lives as a light for Him. It’s now my duty to make sure I’m being a light to them – and in front of them – so that they know how to shine in this dark, dark world. I am so proud of my kids, and I have full confidence that they will do well. There will be heartbreak, and tears, and tons and tons of homework, I’m sure. But through it all, I will be there for them, and will support them in any way that I can.

I just wanted to thank my readers for your support, love, and comments. I truly mean it when I tell you that you are the best readers ever. You have become my friends, and I care for each one of you. {Yes, even the ones who don’t agree with me.}

I also wanted to share a bit of wonderful news. On Sunday night, Zander, my almost 7 year old, got saved. He went forward during the invitation and asked Jesus into his heart. He made this one Father’s Day none of us will ever forget. His Bible lessons have been dealing with grace and the blood of Jesus a lot lately, and he’s been under conviction for weeks. I didn’t want to push him, because I wanted to be sure that it was God leading him and not me. But, Sunday night, he couldn’t hold back any longer. He wanted to know that he was safe and that Jesus was in his heart. Thank you, Lord, for making salvation so simple that even a child can come into Your hand.

Anyway, I’ll close this post now, but I wanted to thank each one of you for your kindness. I hope you’ll continue to stop by and say hello!

    People make negative comments when your choices don't match theirs, because they are unsure about themselves and need validation. Congrats with everything

    Oh- I am crying! Way to go Zander! I can only imagine how proud and happy you (and he) must be right now! I can only imagine! Hopefully Brody will do that once he is older! 🙂

    Zander welcome into God's family. It's the ultimate family with lots of support, so if you need something prayed about for you then don't hesitate to ask those of us in the family to become your prayer warriors.

    Do you know what? Nobody on earth would do it better than you do. Only God would. And He is by your side, all the time. So, you are the way. And you know it. Your kids are so special, so blessed, that I can't even start to describe.

    There will always be differing opinions. What matters is God's. What a blessing that your child received salvation!
