Hi, I’m Naja. I am so excited to be writing the blog post this year for our association. I will admit I have not written this much since undergrad. I do currently write product reviews through a major retailer and a “mom’s group” website. However, I haven’t written like this in years. So, please bear with me as I shake off some of the cobwebs, and I get back in the swing of writing for an audience again. My hope for this blog post is to simply share encouragement, knowledge, wisdom, tips, and tricks that will help you get through each week of this homeschool journey. I pray you all will find something useful in these lines this year.
My life is full and busy. It revolves completely around my faith and my relationship with God. I’m most importantly a follower of Christ by who’s blood we believe there is salvation. We believe in biblical Truth only. Being led by the Spirit of God, we seek to raise our family by that Truth. My relationship with God through Christ is not a side deal. It’s a part of my everyday existence and something that will be illuminated in everything I do. My prayer for my family is that when people see us they see Him in us. And seeing our unique family dynamics really shows the outside world just how gracious, awesome, and merciful the God we serve is to those who believe in Him.
I am a wife of 7 years to a wonderful man of God and minister of music. We were fortunate enough to be blessed with a quiverfull. We have 8 wonderful children ranging in age from 6 years old to 6 months. If you’ve started counting, you are probably wondering just how did we fit 8 children into 6 years. Twins? Adopt? Blended? Our family is not only unique because of our rather large number of children. There’s one more thing that sets us apart from most families. We have three sets of twins. Yes three!!! Now I’m pretty use to people’s reaction to learning that. I get shock, awe, sympathy, blessings, etc. I’ve heard it all. While everyone sees our brood as amazing, it’s just normal life for us. We don’t live everyday as if we are an anomaly. We’re just a family. I plan to share more on our unique family dynamics later. So stay tuned.Continue reading “Hi! How do you do?”
