Time is precious. I fully realize that when you chose to visit my blog, you came looking for something–knowledge, encouragement, inspiration, or maybe just a good laugh. In any case, I value your presence and want to help you make the most of your time.
What would I want a person to know specifically about this blog that would help him or her spend time here wisely? I’d begin with “Why I Write.” In this post I attempt to pen my heart regarding the purpose of this blog. I expanded on this idea with some of the technical reasons I chose WordPress in “What My Blog Wants to Be.”
I write primarily about our family, and what occurs in our lives as we strive through Christ to educate our children at home. I use that phrasing intentionally because the fact that we home educate has, over the years, changed every single aspect of our life, and for those who find themselves here as possible new homeschoolers, or brand new, you’ll find that the same is true of your home as you embark on this journey. Also, if you are new and considering homeschooling, take a look at these posts:
Is this what God wants you to do?
Just how long does a homeschool day take?
Being aligned with your husband in this homeschool journey
Though most of my posts are day-to-day happenings and frequent revelations of the Lord’s wisdom, grace, and much mercy therein, I also occasionally dabble in a “how-to,” although I am without doubt still learning as we go. Check these out:
Working with multiple kids, multiple ages
How to date your kids
Help for a reluctant reader
As I state on my “Who is Belinda?” page, I have a number of irons in the fire. I couldn’t get nearly as much accomplished without some attention to my overall health and wellbeing. That said, I enjoy writing about how we manage to eat healthy and feed picky/ peculiar eaters.
Posts on green smoothies are here and here.
Cooking for a family with very diverse tastes
However you arrived, enjoy your visit, and most of all, be blessed and encouraged in Jesus’ name.
