A life-giving home







I believe we all, as home schooling moms, need the constant renewing of our vision for being life-giving mothers for our children. That is what will sustain us through the difficult times so that we are able finish the race God has laid before us. And not just finish by falling over the line in exhaustion, but by finishing confident and strong! I want to cross that line, hear the cheers, and then listen to the great stories in heaven of countless children whose lives were shaped by faithful, life-giving moms who gave their lives for their children. I want to hear your story, and rejoice with you to see the fruit of life given to your children.

yes! i was telling some mama friends the other night that we really have to *keep inspiration* around us to stay in a place of mama-energy and life! Most people today are so negative in mothering and serving and towards children that it just simply wears you down.
