I wanted to blog for a year after the book released in March 2012. Mostly because I haven’t been a homeschool blogger so nobody really knew who I was, or what I had to say, or if they were at all interested in reading anything I’d written.
I wanted to give people a glimpse into my writing and life to see if they connected.
Also, I wanted to share snapshots of our life over the course of a year, thus the “A Year In The Life” section.
My original plan was not to build a big blog audience. It takes a tremendous amount of time and mental energy to do that right, and I know that’s not what God is calling me to do right now. Every time I pray about it, He confirms that. It’s not the season of my life to take on another job. I need to have fewer things on my to-do list and more time to sit around with my family and listen to them undistracted. Un-plugged.
I love writing. I love putting words together. I love seeing the miracle in the little moments and painting a picture with poetry. But a year has come and gone and it’s time to say goodbye. I went a little past a year because I wanted to tell you about the planned trip to Africa, then I needed to tell you about the unplanned trip to Africa.
But now, it really is time to say: Fare Well.
Fare well in your homeschooling journey, your mothering journey, your wifely journey. May God bless you and give you peace.
My intent is to post updates on Facebook every week-ish or month-ish, just interesting things we’re doing or funny things you might enjoy. Also I may do guest posts on other blogs very occasionally, so I’ll post links to other writing I do on Facebook .
Thanks so much for reading and commenting, friends. I know there are lots of other homeschool blogs, so I pray you would be encouraged by those.
Seek peace and pursue it. Psalm 34:14
Drop Thy still dews of quietness,
till all our strivings cease.
Take from our souls the strain and stress,
and let our ordered lives confess the beauty of Thy peace.
- John Greenleaf Whittier
