I read the words that came across the screen of my phone. “Jesus has already won this battle for you honey never let that devil defeat you. You are strong Barb and you are a child of the most high God. You can and will get through this.” Of course! Those words speak truth! A dear friend of mine sent me these words months ago when I was struggling. How could I forget the most important title I hold? Child of the Most High God.

As I sat in the arena surrounded by women my heart was aching. As I was sitting there I made a full turn so I could see the arena of women standing. Hurting. Crying. In despair. My heart hurt so much for these beautiful women. I wanted to leave my seat and just hug each and every one of these ladies. Many of these ladies felt defeated. The enemy had come into their lives and stole their joy. So many women are standing. I cannot believe what I was witnessing.

When I look back upon my life and think about the different seasons in my life. I come to the conclusion that the teenage years were the hardest. I was part of a blended family where I was trying to find where I fit in, not just in the family but in school as well. I felt pressure to look a certain way, act a certain way, and I would find that I would be criticized for who I was. At that time in my life I had no idea who I was or where I will end up. A lot of changes were occurring in my life during the crucial time in my life. Oh why do the teenage years have to be so hard?

Every single day in life we have to make decisions. Some decisions are easier to make and some not so easy. Some decisions we make do not affect other people, such as what flavor creamer do you want in your coffee? Or should I eat a sandwich for lunch or have a salad? Then there are some decisions that do affect other people such as changing jobs or making the decision to homeschool your children.

Love.Not the love of a husband and wife or even the love of a child, but the love from our God. Many times we think we are showing His love but can I ask are we truly showing His love? Not the love we think is His love but truly His love.

We have all made mistakes sometime in our life. We have learned from our mistakes or we have not. We may continue making the same mistakes. Sometimes we dwell on the mistakes we have made. We sit and wish we did not make certain mistakes in our life. However, in the end, the mistakes we have made or making cause us to be the person we are today.

One area of our homeschool that I am focusing on this year is teaching the blessings to cook. When I moved out of my parent’s house I had no idea how to cook. I was never taught except when I was in home ec in high school. Even then I had no idea what I was doing. If it did not come in a box with directions then we were not eating. I did not truly learn how to cook and I mean learn to cook from scratch until my mid-20’s.
