Finding Grace to Be a Great Homeschool Mom

As I prepare for a new homeschool year I've been thinking a lot about my life as a homeschool mom. I have two adult children now and two still in our homeschool. My adult children have entered new chapters in their lives where they're making their own choices and are busy working or going to school.

Finding Grace to be a Great Homeschool Mom
I've found myself reflecting back over the years, thinking about the fun things I did with my kids when they were little, the sweet memories that I'll cherish forever, and the way they've grown and matured and then B-A-M! I get hit like a ton of bricks with all the things I think I've done wrong or all the ways I think I've failed them.

What in the world is that all about? Most of the time I can redirect my thoughts but sometimes I allow them to grow in my mind.

I have a Christian world-view, meaning I try to base my thoughts and decisions from the Bible. Those negative thoughts didn't just come out of nowhere and I'm convinced that my enemy, Satan, put them there to try to steal my joy, to bring me down, to discourage me and make me feel defeated.

Replay of My Interview from the Anxiety Summit

Hey everyone, this past June I was honored to be interviewed by Trudy Scott for her Anxiety Summit, Season 4. Trudy and I connected on Facebook when I shared one of her posts about GABA and how we used it for our Lyme anxiety.

Trudy is a nutritionist and the Food Mood Expert, you can learn more about her below. I learned so much from her previous Anxiety Summit which gave me the information needed to help my daughter with her anxiety.

I'm posting my interview here for you in case you weren't able to listen when it was live.  I hope you enjoy it and are encouraged. If you'd like to hear all of the other amazing speakers, you can still order a complete set of the entire summit. Click here

Nourishing Your Anxious Child

Nourishing Your Anxious Child, Anxiety

When our daughter began having anxiety it never dawned on me to address her diet. I took her to the pediatrician a number of times and her doctor never told me to explore possible food allergies or heavy metal toxicity. She never considered Lyme infections could be the cause because doctors are generally not taught to look for that.
