My name is Kristi. I am most often called Mommy and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love being a wife and mother. I have found my calling simply being at home. I used to work at a job. Now I am doing something I am passionate about. I feel like I was made to be a mommy. I want my kids and my husband (and my friends too!) to experience God's love when they are with me.
I am NOT supermom, although I still try to be at times. My home usually starts out pretty neat in the morning and by the end of the day, it looks like three children live here. Crumbs, toys, messes and sticky faces are just part of an average day. I am blessed. God has allowed me the privilege of raising my children and educating them at home.
I have a wonderful, supportive husband. You need one of those when you homeschool. He helps me in more ways than I can ever list here. We've been married 12 years and we are still very much in love. I love being his wife.
Our 3 children are true delights. My oldest daughter is 11 and in 6th grade. My son is 7 and in 2nd Grade. Our "baby" is 3 and will start preschool this year. Our home is noisy, busy, and messy at times and that is just perfect.
I homeschool our children (with the loving support and dedication of my hubby) because it is the best way to prepare them to be the people God has created them to be. I want each of them to be fully aware that they bear the fingerprints of their Creator, and that he has a wonderful plan for them. Education is very important to me. I want my children to be well informed, educated adults. Home education is not something that my husband and I take lightly - it is an enormous responsibility. We want what is best for them.
I am not writing this blog because I think I have any great wisdom or insight. I do, however, have a heart for homeschooling moms. I've been blessed with a wonderful support network of friends who homeschool. Both of our families support our decision, even if they may not truly understand it. I want the same for those who read this blog.
May you find refreshment here. God bless!
