I know that my vocation is to be a wife and mother. I married the love of my life, and I eagerly anticipate our life together and the many, many children we hope God will bless us with. In the meantime, I endeavor to better myself in preparation for the greatest task God will ever entrust to me. This preparation includes new experiences and garnering information and advice regarding the role of a wife and mother. Through observation, in-depth discussion, and hands-on learning, I am striving to learn as much as possible.
At the insistence of a dear friend, and through sheer boredom and the desire for something to stretch my mind, I have determined to catalog my experiences - good and bad - as I strive to fulfill my vocation to its highest potential. The content will, more than likely, revolve mainly around teaching adventures scattered with numerous disciplinary moments and topped with the rare yet beautiful moments of serenity. It is my hope to neither bore nor intimidate any readers. Rather, I hope that the glimpses into my life will entertain and enlighten y'all. Likewise, do not let the eventual "horror stories" of home-schooling or disciplining children turn anyone away from the idea of raising their own family. The frustrations, disappointments, arguments and discipline are part and parcel of the beautiful and wonderful reward of a loving family. Through prayer and perseverance, trial and error, and enormous amounts of patience, combined with a dash of creativity and humor, the path to a happy family can begin. And so it begins.
