I thought this was encouraging for all of us…
I really appreciate that each interview includes the question “What would you have done differently?”. I think the recurring theme is “relax”. Last year, just starting out with a 5 year old and a 2 year old, I quickly had to keep school fairly relaxed in order for all of us to stay sane. But sometimes I’ve worried that I’m not doing enough. It’s nice to get the encouragement that it will be O.K. from those who have many years of experience and perspective.
My response was:
“We didn’t plan the theme of RELAX, but I guess that’s what is on everyone’s heart.”
Personally, I think we live in a society that is too busy & too stressed!
The idea of RELAXING is so appropriate for all of us. I’ve had lots of listeners mention that relaxing is what is most encouraging. I know that’s God talking to all of us!
AND…I’ll be talking about relaxing & choosing your homeschool activities tomorrow.
If you’ve missed any of these interviews that encourage all of us, grab the recordings right here.
