For those of you who have somehow found your way to this blog- welcome and thanks for all of the grace and patience I hope you will have as I learn to navigate my way around this new venue for me! I am definitely a "books over screens" type of girl, but at this point in my life it seems that in order to share some of my passion about helping other families in our homeschooling and parenting journeys, I need to learn to make my way around the blogosphere...so here we are!
Years ago in a store in the foothills of NC I saw a sign that proclaimed "Passersby Welcome" and I knew that it said in two words the vision of my heart- that our home, our family, would be a place where passersby might feel drawn to stop and rest awhile, to change from strangers to friends, and where they just might feel comfortable enough to return again soon.
My hope and prayer is that you will feel welcome here to (virtually) have a seat on my front porch with me, let me put a steaming cup of coffee or tea in your hand, and we can enjoy the view from the little farmhouse where I live with my husband and the 3 of my 5 children that still call this home. I live for scruffy hospitality- where the floors are never completely clean, there are usually a few dishes in the sink, some folded laundry on the chair, and always a stack or two of books on most surfaces.
What I am interested in is you- your story and your journey, where our stories and journeys might just intersect in homeschooling or this hard and beautiful path of mothering our children. I hope you will feel comfortable enough to sit on my swing for a while and let's get to know each other!
I am a wife and homeschooling mom who absolutely loves her job! I love to read good books, enjoy art, and sit on my porch with family, friends and any passersby to talk about them and what a good, good Father we all have!
