Our Homeschool Beginnings

After attending a parenting seminar for the first time in our local church last 2008, my eyes were opened to the big picture of biblical parenting and its goal of passing on a Godly heritage to the next generation.  That seminar made an impact in my life, especially as a parent, and little did I know that it will also be a turning point for me and my husband.  After attending that seminar, God had planted a desire in my heart, that as a parent, to make a difference in our children's life and to take on the big challenge of passing on a Godly heritage to our children and to the next generation.  But how?  The desire that God had planted in my heart prompted me to delve deeper into how we can attain such a wonderful Godly legacy that we can pass on to our children.

You see, our two little angels are living proofs that God truly answers prayers and that God is indeed a God of miracles.  After five years of marriage and five years of waiting patiently in prayer and in expectation, God granted the desire of our hearts, and that is to have children of our own.  I must say that these children came into our life in God's wonderful and perfect time and in God's own miraculous ways.  It may be a difficult and high-risk pregnancy for both, but we believe that these children are God's precious gifts to us.  And as stewards of God's blessings, I believe that we are responsible to raise His children in His nurture and admonition.

Another New Beginning

Hhmmm...How to begin is usually the hardest part for me in writing. In the realities of life, in almost everything, beginnings are usually difficult but exciting. I remember all my bitter sweet beginnings - my tiny little steps as a baby, my first day in school, first job, falling in love and getting married, moving in to a new house, giving birth and raising children. And now that I am a full-time housewife and mother, I am thrilled to have found another new "beginning" in my life, and that is blogging!

I have always wanted to share my thoughts, opinions and experiences, especially how God has been moving in my day-to-day life, to others but I just do not have the knack in public speaking nor in expressing myself very well in the oral language. I guess I am more comfortable and better in expressing myself in writing. This is me. Not so much of a talker but a writer. Ever since I was young, I have always been fond of writing in my diary. Being a part of the editorial staff of my high school and college then was challenging but exciting, too. I guess that's where my writing skills were honed. So I guess this new venture of mine in blogging would be another exciting one for me, as well. A great venue where I hope to share, to inspire and even to educate...all for the glory of God!

Still learning about this thing about blogging, but hopefully with God's help and wisdom, I will get into the groove of things here and learn, haha!  So watch out for my next posts sometime soon.
