~Me carrying Courageous Boy Warrior in my womb, baby shower 2005~
I was told at school I could be anything I wanted to be. And I believed them. So after high school I completed a radio announcer course and gained employment in the radio industry immediately. I liked it, but I wasn't passionate about it, so I soon lost interest. Then I thought that I had better get serious about my future and get a degree. I liked helping people and so started studying Social Work and Psychology subjects at university. I liked it, but I wasn't passionate about it. I felt like a fraud at university and soon dropped out after I lost interest.
Not long after that, I came to know Jesus in a personal way and was born-again. I was 19 and so in love with the King, so eager to please Him. I was taught that the way to show Jesus how much you loved Him was to serve in the local church. So I served. I ran home groups, became an assistant youth pastor and studied at bible college. I liked it, but I wasn't passionate about it and I soon lost interest.
Fast forward a few years and I met and married the most amazing man. He was someone that I was passionate about. Two years after we were married, it happened. I found something that I was passionate about. I became a mother. I remember feeling "This is it! This is what I want to be when I grow up!" I want to be a mother.
So what am I passionate about that I would do without getting paid for? Right what I am doing now. Homeschooling my Boy Warriors. That's it! Romans 11:29 says:
For God's gifts and his call can never be withdrawn.
I am done with wondering if homeschooling my boys is 'enough'. It is my gifting. It is my calling and it can never be withdrawn.
Still taking lessons from the King,
