Make informed decisions based on both sides of the issues.
We have way more freedom of choice in Jesus than we realize!
Live by faith in Truth and His promises than by my crazy feelings.
God loves people more than He loves movements. In other words, God cares more about me than about the concept of homeschooling or fill-in-the-Christian subculture-blank.
Don't misuse the name of the Lord by tying Him to a good agenda--let the Word speak for itself and allow the Holy Spirit to give individual application to believers.
We are each unique and will not all be called to the same life path, lifestyle, purpose, mission. We can have the same values without the same lifestyle.
Don't judge. You've never walked a mile in those shoes.
Don't judge. You'll be shocked that you did judge when you end up one day walking a mile in those shoes.
There are seasons in life for families. Allow the Spirit to guide you and not others' expectations. Or your unrealistic expectations of yourself.
Be as kind to yourself as you are to your friends.
Laugh WAY more! Don't take life so seriously! We are gloriously safe and free and secure in Him and through Him...not through our knowledge, our choices, or our philosophy of living.
Trust God with your children.
Homeschooling is simply another educational choice--not "God's way", "the best way", "the only way" for everyone at every time.
Surround yourself with others who point you to God in your daily living and family choices...not their viewpoints, convictions, or lifestyles. If you see beautiful fruit in their life, attribute it to the Holy Spirit's work, not as a result of their lifestyle!
Homeschooling must be the right choice at the right time for the whole family (including mama!)
God holds my family together, not me. Don't think that I am God for my family. Let Him be my all-sufficient, Sovereign Lover, Leader, and Sustainer.
