Why Diligence Without Fear?

In any circumstance, it can be a temptation to either trust God to care for us and become careless ourselves, or to feel the need to be diligent and become paralyzed with (or overly driven by) fear and lack of faith. The latter is particularly difficult for me! In truth our calling is to trust in God for all of our provision - and so doing work at our calling with all our might, without fear snarling at our heels. This should be obvious, but it isn't always, at least to me.

The focus of this blog is to share my journey of raising up a quiver full of covenant arrows, and leaving my road in God's loving hands. Homemaking is a glorious calling, but is it easy to lose vision and become discouraged and fretful, especially in hard times. It is important to find refreshment through the Bible, prayer, fellowship - and to not beat ourselves up that it is hard (impossible!) for a mom with a growing brood to accomplish these things in the same way as her neighbor.

I hope that in sharing my thoughts and practical methods on everything from childbirth to homeschooling, from getting three meals on the table (most) every day to multigenerational vision and theonomic politics that I can encourage homeschooling moms of many to take heart for the battle and realize that in welcoming God's blessings into our homes and tending them diligently, we are truly embracing and living God's perfect will for the growth and influence of His people in the world.

If you are visiting my blog and you are on a different road, please feel welcome. I would love to hear from you regardless of where you are coming from.

Our family motto is this: "Live Biblically, in the face of the the culture, in all areas of life and thought."  We are always striving to apply God's word to every area; strive with us!  For Christ and His Kingdom; for the crown rights of King Jesus!  Soli deo gloria!
