A very common response from the world - when they hear we homeschool is, "I don't know how you do it!"
I remember saying that all the time - before I did it.
In fact, I used to say, "I really hope God never calls me to homeschool - because I could never do it!" And guess what... that Man called me to homeschool! I've never felt a calling like this one in all my life. I wasn't too happy about it. I pretty much went into homeschooling kicking and screaming. I was so scared. Someone just needed to push me over the edge because I couldn't jump in on my own.
At tennis lessons lessons yesterday, a nice lady was asking me lots of questions. She said, "I don't know how you do it. I couldn't do it. I couldn't get everything done." I had the same fears!
Without skipping a beat - I said, "You just do. Miraculously, everything gets done."
My work looks a little different than it did a year ago. Our definition of everything has changed.
Even more of my life is not my own.
I believe that when God calls you to do anything - He will give you the desire, the power and He will equip you!
It really is a miracle - we are homeschooling and loving it! Of course, you can imagine the challenges that come with the deal, but the many joys far outweigh the challenges. I chose to follow, and now I have to choose to trust. I'm amazed daily at the ways He inspires me, powers me, and blesses our family. It has been a wonderful journey of trust.
"For God is working in you, giving you the desire and the power to do what pleases him." Philippians 2:13
