I think it’s perfectly “normal” to worry we’re screwing up our children! One thing I’ve learned about homeschooling – is that God uses it to point out my own weaknesses as much my kids’.

Sometimes I think that perhaps I shouldn’t be their greatest influencer since she seems to pick up my own bad habits/issues/sins so easily.  But I remind myself of two things.

1) God made ME their mama and not someone else. On purpose. And called us to homeschool.

2) God’s grace is made PERFECT in our weakness. If we didn’t mess up as parents, God would have no space to show His grace!

So, I now constantly pray that God will give our family lots of grace and fill in all the gaps where I fall so very short – no matter what the specific thing might be right then.
