Hold On, Homeschool Mama! An Allegory to Inspire You


A Bumpy Path Emerges

Looking ahead, the flat and even path makes a sharp turn, and we find the grade becoming more steep and far more rocky.


Our kids balk at our “perfect” curriculum.

We deal with unexpected illness that takes everyone down for a week or more.

There are rocks in our path that we must climb. And they’re nothing that we’d planned for. 

And suddenly, we feel that familiar tiredness setting in–that feeling that we thought we’d left behind in the last school year.

This is beautiful! I have taken this trip myself and struggled and ached, (mostly from my heart) and wondered if we would make it. I have also, at last, reached the point of peace you write about, enjoying the victory and suddenly become overwhelmed with gratitude, suddenly so aware of the blessings, opportunity, and love constantly surrounding me. It is not easy being a homeschool Mom. It is, however, the most rewarding position you can hold, if you hold on. Stay the course and stay in prayer. God has got you and so you have got this. One day at a time, girls!
