  1. I can not thank you enough for your heart that you so openly share!! You truly inspire me! I sincerely admire and appreciate you!! Thank you so very much!

    1. Thank you so much for this post. I love the way you remind us to look to our Lord for strength! Greetings from the Netherlands

  2. Thank you Heidi. I needed to hear this especially today. We are only a week into our new school year and I just felt exhausted today. Already negative thoughts in my head that what I’m doing is “not enough.” Thank you for these encouraging thoughts! Blessings to you and your family in the new year!

  3. This has so been on my heart, nothing worth doing is easy! And if we work hard and press on we will see the benefits. Oh bless the Lord oh my soul and forget not all His benefits…….. Thank you for sharing, we have many wonderful opportunities each day to share the love of Christ with our precious children. I am humbled and honored to be homeschooling them, but more than that Christ-schooling them. Thanks for sharing!!!

  4. This is amazing! I love your blog and I love how real you are. I need this. I saw you speak in Cincinnati last April and I came up to talk to you and all I could do was cry. I had so much to say but nothing would come out. Thank you for what you are doing!

  5. Thank you for your encouragement! With a new baby only a week ago I am once again reconsidering that school bus for my first grader. I needed the reminder to trust in His strength to continue homeschooling.

  6. Thank you for your post!! I have a boy with ADHD in the 2nd grade who I am homeschooling. We got off to a good start last week but the last two days have been really hard. (mostly for me) He can be so hyper!! It is sometimes difficult to deal with. Thanks for reminding me that God will give me the strength I need to be patient and kind. Are any of your children hyper or have ADHD? I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    1. Hi Karen! You know, I don’t have any children that have been diagnosed with ADHD but I have a hunch I’ve got a couple who are at least borderline. For us, short school days and very intentional scheduling make a big difference. When they need to jump around, I send them running outside if it’s possible. If not, we take “brain breaks”. Check out Heather Haupt’s “Brain Breaks” book. It’s great. You can do this!
