Big Mushy Thank You

To all of you who have so kindly responded to my parental plight via Comments or e-mail,

Thank you! And the books you suggested? I bought it. (Yes, all of them.) I’m a big believer in reading lots of nonfiction when faced with an obstacle. I’m like my mother that way.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your kind words, encouragement, suggestions, and prayers. They’ve helped considerably already!

Ok. End of love note!

PS I’d DIE if I homeschooled. DIE, y’all.

You would not die. It didn’t kill me, right? (She Lives, get it?)

I sorta homeschool one of my kids, HM. He’s in school part time and with me the other part–long story. Anyway, I’m not dying or anything, but I definitely have to buy anti-wrinkle cream now.

By God’s grace and all this support, I’m sure you’ll figure out what to do next. (Lemmeknow if you need a good face cream recommendation :-)

Sweetie, Of course I do not know if homeschooling is the right option for your family– only you can determine that with the guidance of God and after discussion with your hubby. And who knows, God may have a totally different path mapped out for you. Homeschooling is not the solution for everyone. However, I do know a really great promise: “I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

Kelsey, you don’t have to homeschool. We’ll love you anyway!

(But you know if you say you’ll go anywhere but Africa, He’ll send you straight there!)

(Yeah, I’ve done that. I would NEVER have thought I’d have SIX KIDS and HOMESCHOOL!! I have a teaching license and I was going to have two kids and a nice job teaching English!)

I am confident that God can work in many ways in your family besides homeschooling. If He’s got you on your knees, then that’s exactly where He wants you.

Hang in there.

I found your blog through Dena Dyer’s. What a cute place you have here. I’m also a fan of Kristin Billerbeck — I read She’s Out of Control and enjoyed it. I tried writing some chick lit — but it was also “scary-bad.” I’m sticking with nonfiction for now. I’m also a mom of many — reading books keeps me sane. Best wishes on your writing.
