I am a home school mom of an “only” who will be graduating in 2014. I was blessed to be a SAHM mom for the first thirteen years of her life. During that time, the Lord began to really do a work in me. I read nearly everything Elizabeth George wrote, and consider her a great mentor to me, even if I have never met her. Her books were truly life-changers for me in how I viewed my role as a wife, mother, woman of God. It was during that time that I began to really devour the book of Proverbs, and especially Proverbs 31. I began to have a passion arise within me to encourage other women in our journey through life. Through that passion, the Lord has enabled me to use my own life-lessons and turn them to devotional form.
After being a SAHM for thirteen years, my husband’s business was drastically hit by the economic crunch. Since I had learned over the last several years that I am to be help-meet to him, I knew it was time for me to reenter the workforce. I am very thankful that I was able to find a job that I really enjoy at a local hospital.
Through this journey, we’ve discovered that while home schooling during high school years with mom working outside the home isn’t easy, it IS possible. We’ve had to make a lot of adjustments and allowances to make it work, but it has been worth every bit of effort.
My hubby and I just celebrated 25 years of marriage in May 2013. We had a few years where we really struggled in our marriage. However, after much prayer and stick-to-it-iveness, I can honestly say that we are happily married, and that we act like newlyweds. Just ask my daughter, who is constantly saying, “Take it to the bedroom,” whenever she sees out our outward forms of expression toward each other.
