An Introduction...for Meet & Greet Week

I have been blogging for a, why an introduction now?
Raising Might Arrows is having a Bloggers Meet & Greet Week this week.  If you are a blogger, check out the link at the bottom of this post.  You can get in on the Meet & Greet Week as well!

My name is Hillary Gould.  I live in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina with my husband of (almost) 11 years and our three children. 

Our first two children are both boys, born 13 months and 13 days apart!

Our third child is a little girl who was born 20 months after our second boy. 

Because of the way their birthdates fall, for about four months out of the year, their ages are in consecutive order.  Like now, they are currently 9, 8, and 7.  When they tell others outside our family this, their eyes widen!  God chose to give them to us in a short period of time, and He knows best.  I am glad that they can grow up together and be friends. 
Why I blog:
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 amazing 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 me...  I should blog about 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. 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 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 the word, "Destination" came to mind.  I figured that would work well with parenting, homeschooling, etc. as, I thought "What is my destination as a mother?"  To train them!  Therefore, you have the name, "Destination:  Proverbs 22:6."   This being said, my posts are mostly related to Christian living, marriage, homeschooling, and being a mother.
