Before homeschooling our children I was a Real Estate Paralegal. Not sure which is more stressful?! (Just kidding I wouldn’t change my job as teacher, mother, wife). My husband and I are both attending Liberty University online. We are preparing for full time ministry, as Pastor of a church or in the mission field. That is something God will work out for us.

Why do you blog?
I started blogging just to keep a journal of our daily activities. I had been reading blogs for a long time prior to starting one myself. At the prompting of a friend I started one of my own. Who would know that 3 years later I’ve been blessed beyond belief through my blog. I have made many blog friends who have cried with me, laughed with me and rejoiced with me. It’s a wonderful group!

Why do you homeschool?
We started homeschooling 6 years ago. Our middle daughter was in Kindergarten at the time. We made a surprise visit to her classroom and she was sitting in the corner with a bunch of toys. Now our daughter could not communicate very well at all. We were under the impression they were working on this. All they did with her day after day was put her in the corner with busy work. Broke my heart. We had felt the urge to homeschool for some time before this day.
