I’ve been a little slow in writing my follow up post. I have had so much to think about and a lot going on in my personal life the past few weeks.
I attended 2:1 for encouragement and that is exactly what I got. It was a necessary experience for me. I did leave with a few more questions than answers, but that was a good thing. The questions have really helped me to reflect on and pray about who I want to be as a homeschool mom and a blogger.
As a homeschooler, I want to completely trust the Lord to help me with His kids that He has given me for a short time.
As a blogger, I want to encourage and reach out. I want my blogging to be a ministry to other women who are walking where I have walked or am currently walking in both my homeschooling and personal faith journey.
Highlight quotes from the conference:
“We are called to actually die, not faint for His glory.” Rachel Carman
