Everyone blogs these days, right?! So, why not me? Honestly, I was never really "into" blogging. Doesn't Facebook tell us everything that we want to know about someone? My answer was, "Yes." Then, in March 2012, my family took a trip...from coast to coast...we began on the East Coast...where we live...and traveled all the way to the West Coast... It was an awesome trip. I never thought that I would be able to plan 14 days for a family of five traveling all the way across the country. I spent a lot of time planning, and re-planning, and stressing...but when all was said and done, we had a wonderful trip. So, I thought..."Maybe there are other families out there that would like to do something like this, and don't know where to start...like me... I should blog about it...to help other people to have an easier time than I had." That is where my blogging spark began.
I homeschool my three children. I know that homeschooling is becoming more popular these days...but I also know that every family is different. So, I also want to include homeschooling posts here as well. In actuality, that will probably be the bulk of my postings...because it is my "job." It's more than that, but for all intents and purposes, it is my "job." I love my job, and wouldn't trade it for any other in the world.
I try each day to teach my children more about Jesus. I want them to know about Him, love Him, and serve Him. I want them to strive to be more like Him each day. A verse that has given me comfort in those days when I wonder if anything is getting through...when I wonder if they understood a word that I just said...is Proverbs 22:6 "Train up a child in that he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it." I take comfort in knowing that God says that I should do my best right now...train them up! So much easier said than done, but I give it my best!
This is how I came up with the name for this blog...I would be blogging about our travel...so the word, "Destination" came to mind. I figured that would work well with parenting, homeschooling, etc. as well...so, I thought "What is my destination as a mother?" To train them! Therefore, you have the name, "Destination: Proverbs 22:6."
My next few blog posts will introduce you to those little blessings that God has given to me to train...to love...to care for...to teach...and to have lots of fun with! I praise the Lord for these three gifts each day.
