Serving You and Yours,
I have a real and honest truth to disclose to YOU my readers.
Here it goes…….
When it come to *people*, in general, I can be very ambiguous..
I said it.
Let me explain. And YES it does relate to today’s post. :) Ha!
I have a great love and big heart for people.
I enjoy serving people.
Getting to know people.
I appreciate growing in community with people.
I thrive in hearing and learning about people.
Also, I tire of people.
Ok…..that was the disclosed truth that I was to vulnerably share. :D
I LOVE people. Yet I TIRE of people quickly.
However, I love being with people more than I tire of being with people.
There is a secret that the Lord has shown me over the years is that ….
I…. YOU…..WE need each other.
Especially those who name the name of Christ.
Grant it…sometimes you may have to *go it* alone or *stand it* alone……..
And I’ve done my share and am doing my share of that too.
God created us to need each other.
Today’s post speaks to this truth in a most clear, precise and to the POINT kind of a way.
I know that in this area where I homeschool and live people are starting to withdraw more and more when we actually need to connect, connect and connect.
My heart is to work towards COMMUNITY. Growing in relationship together. We need that more than we realize.
Yet, I believe the enemy of our souls seek to actively destroy this and we play into this so easily.
I’m tired. I’m busy. I don’t *feel* like it. They are phoneys. I don’t have friends. No one really wants to get together. On and On and On.
I pray that today’s post encourages your heart to connect with other homeschooling Moms. Make an effort to do so!
And watch what happens to your outlook on life.
What happens to your demeanor.
What happens to cynicism.
What happens to your heart.
What happens to your circle of friends (it will grow).
What will happen when our children see us working to keep relationships growing and developing.
Great things happen.
Make some homeschool Mom friends today! Tomorrow! As often as you can!
Work to build relationships with those you don’t know….Ha! That’ll be different. :)

“Stand still my happy heart. Stand still.”
Today’s post is something that’s becoming nearer and dearer to me.
The simplicity, basic-ness yet necessity of teaching our children LIFE SKILLS!
I can not began to tell you of the stories I hear continually of *now Moms* who were never taught to run a home, budget money or time management. Yet now as a parent they are struggling to figure this all out.
As homeschoolers we can get so caught up in ACADEMICS, BOOKS, STUDIES ETC…….. that we forget to teach out children to live the *normal* life and what that will look like.
Likewise, I can’t began to tell you how many *smart- highly intellegent in books* type of children I’ve met but don’t have common manners or common house sense.
What’s a allen wrench vs. a flat head screwdriver? Where is the oil in a car vs. where the water tank is?
Common life skills.

I pray this encourages and enlighten your journey!
Just Saturday I sat down to have a relaxing, adult, heart to heart conversation with a fellow homeschooling Mom.
As we enjoyed our ChickFilA meal and a bit of delightful chatter I shared with her a clear, precise and detailed word that the Lord had spoke to my heart just the week before.
During a moment of me coming down on myself for something, the Lord said, “Angela, I never called you to be a PERFECT Mother.”
And a ton of bricks were lifted off, His Words penetrated my heart and freed me of some unwelcomed burdens.
I’m not sure why MOMS do this to ourselves.
We put on yokes that the Lord never called us to.
We do it over, and over and over again!
Somewhere….Someone has said that in every aspect of our life there should be perfecting.
However, our Lord NEVER EVER called us to that life.
Just at that intelligent moment that we decide to take on the calling of PERFECTION is when we feel the brunt of it’s inability to be fulfilled.
Today’s post speaks to this subject so beautifully.
I happened on to this post by mistake as I was preparing to type up a blog post JUST along these lines.
So, I say to you…………
Be set free from PERFECTION!
You can’t do it anyways.
