Hey there! Welcome, I’m so glad you are here! I am Cara. I am a wife, a mom – a homeschool mom, a christian, a book lover, an art fanatic, an organization freak, and a mom with chronic illness.
Why I started this blog: I started homeschooling in 2014. I was diagnosed with chronic pain in 2014. I never planned on homeschooling, it just happened. In short, my daughter needed to be home – so I brought her home. Everyone thought I was insane. Obviously, everyone had the typical homeschool doubts, but on top of it I was sick. I heard many times “How are you going to homeschool her if you are in pain?” Honestly, I had no idea. I felt called to do it, so I just did it.
This blog was created because I want to help other homeschool mamas that do this with chronic illness, low energy, depression, anxiety, etc to know that you are not alone.
The truth is: I have Lupus and I homeschool – and I homeschool well. But only through the strength of the Lord! (and coffee.. so much coffee!)
Therefore, I can tackle each day with confidence. I have really bad days, but we have SO many joyful days. Even on bad days I try to stay confident and know that God has got this. He will help me homeschool my children to the best of my ability even through chronic illness. It has taken me awhile to get here; to a place of peace, rest, and confidence, but nonetheless, I am here.
On this blog you will find posts about homeschool, motherhood, life and health, quirky kids, organization tips, and more.
Most importantly I pray that you will find posts that will empower you here.
Mama, you can homeschool through chronic illness!
