Cultivating Restful Hearts in Homeschool Moms



Declare – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 16

We can boldly approach God’s throne because we approach in the Name of Jesus, as discussed yesterday. Yet, when we approach Him, what are we supposed to actually say? As an introvert, thinking of what to say can be difficult for… Continue Reading →

Approach – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 15

In my human nature, my personality is not characterized by boldness. My tendency is more toward fear, insecurity, and timidity. That tendency used to spill over into my prayer life. My prayers were hesitant. I resisted asking for fear that… Continue Reading →

Gather – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 14

For years, I have missed out on a great blessing. But I received that blessing this morning. I have viewed my beginning of the year prayer focus as my time. I wake early, before my children, for extra time in prayer. This… Continue Reading →

Listen – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 13

Have you ever been guilty of having a conversation with someone without really listening to them? Yeah, me too. As a homeschool mom, that is something I do way too often. Since I am constantly with my four children, constant noise and chatter… Continue Reading →

Pursue – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 12

Day 12 of 21. We’re just over halfway there. Are you still with me? While driving on a road trip, the middle of the journey is typically the hardest. Anticipation and excitement fill the beginning. Somewhere in the middle, they… Continue Reading →

Intercede – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 11

I did not feel like praying this morning. I’m right smack in the middle of writing a 21 day prayer challenge, and the words just wouldn’t come as I tried to pray. Even with a prayer guide in front of… Continue Reading →

Be Still – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 10

Tuesdays are extremely busy days for me, and today is my first regular Tuesday of the year. I’m sure you understand busy days. But today is still part of my intentional 21 days of prayer. My time with the Lord… Continue Reading →

Express – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 9

Expressiveness is not one of my top qualities. I’m not one to cheer and yell loudly at sporting events. I don’t jump up and down with joy when I’m excited. Even though I might feel strongly on the inside, I… Continue Reading →

Admit – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 8

There are many things about myself that I would prefer to not admit. Weaknesses, insecurity, failures, sin. Yet, my unwillingness to admit something that is true about myself does not change the truth. I have weaknesses, and they affect the… Continue Reading →

Invite – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 7

Yesterday, I encouraged us to enter into God’s presence by giving thanks to Him and blessing His Name. We can only enter God’s presence because we have been invited. Our invitation is through the blood of Jesus. When He sacrificed… Continue Reading →

Enter – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 6

Enter God’s Presence.  Years ago, a friend asked me for a favorite verse for a framed print she made for me. The verse I chose: “One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek: that I may… Continue Reading →

Worship – Restful Homeschool Resolution Day 5

My alarm was not my friend this morning. I’m sure you understand the desire to snuggle back under the covers, for just one more minute. But, today, I did not do it. Part of my fast (denying my flesh what it… Continue Reading →
