Motherhood Monday 2

Nathan James – 5 Years Old + 6 Months Expecting with Merry Layne

It is so hard for me to believe that this little guy will turn 12 years old this week.

When I start to think about all the things that I “could be” or “should be” teaching my children, it can be quite overwhelming at times.  I believe these feelings to be especially true for a homeschool mom.  I know that there will be gaps in their education.  Wait a minute…  Did I just type type that?!?  Surprised smile

Yes, this is true.  We just cannot possibly teach our children everything.  No matter how many times we start at the beginning of the history timeline and work out way through from Ancient Egypt to Modern Times, it is just NOT going to happen.  We are going to miss some things and that is ok.

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
~  3 John 1:4

I find so much peace in this simple verse.  It really sums up my big overall purpose to me beautifully. 

There is no greater thing that I can be teaching my children or modeling for them day in + day out than to walk in truth.  Remember that ‘ole saying…  More is caught, than taught

I truly believe that if I do this for them that my reward will be to hear that they are also walking in that same truth.  This is definitely not always easy because my flesh likes to take over, but it is a daily goal of mine and I think this is much more important than covering all 8 areas of grammar each year. 

Have a blessed Monday friends,
