He Will Calm All Of Your Fears

 "For the Lord your God is living among you.  He is a mighty Savior.  He will take delight in you with gladness.  With His love He will calm all of your fears.  He will rejoice over you with joyful songs." Zephaniah 3:17

My latest obsession:  Homeschooling Theory books & Curriculum.  I have been reading everything I can find on Charlotte Mason, Unschooling, Leadership Education, Curriculum maps...my head is swimming.  Am I crazy? Yes.  But, in my defense, I am new to this homeschooling thing and I want to give it all I have got!  Crazy, fear-filled Mama is back.

"He will calm all of your fears..."  ahhh...I can rest.  I can move slowly.  No rushing.  No drowning my kids in spelling drills.  No racing out to buy the latest, best curriculum.  I can sit on the couch and read with them, enjoy books with them, enjoy math with them, enjoy THEM!

Fearless: Putting outside pressures aside & allowing my kids to be who they were created to be.  Isaiah hates reading (which he started off loving) right now and my guess is it is because of his Type A, not yet dead- to- self Mama.  So, we are taking a HUGE step back and going to enjoy learning together.  I will model for him a love of learning.  It will come.  Oh, the journey...so thankful tonight for the reminder that He takes delight in me...He loves me...He rejoices over me...in that truth, I will sleep peacefully.
