Earlier this year, I shared about some major changes in my life and some health issues that came about as a result of those changes. We all know that change isn’t easy. Trials aren’t either. Going through them stinks.
But the good news is in Romans 8:28, which says “we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Wow! Those are some powerful words. If you’ve been in church for any length of time, you’ve likely memorized them. But, do you believe them?
From experience, I can tell you that it’s often hard to believe when we’re in the middle of difficult times. It’s hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel. But, I can also tell you that these words are true! And I’ve seen them played out in my life time and time again.
Most recently, I have been blessed with an amazing group of women that has come around me to support me through some trying times. At first, I thought it was just a group that I could open up to and share. Little did any of us know that God was forming a group to do mighty things for Him . . .
One day, I woke up with an idea in my head. I shared with the group, and it spiraled from there. And the result is a website for homeschoolers that is scheduled to launch on April 2nd.
Part of our “disclaimer” is really an “about us” - The primary goal of Homeschool Mosaics is to support homeschoolers. Our hope is that the diversity of our writers will be a gift to the diversity of our readers.
We want to reach ALL homeschoolers. We don’t want to limit our audience to only those who are homeschooling using a certain method, those who are in a specific group, or those of a particular religious affiliation. We have all chosen the path of homeschooling – so, therefore, we all have homeschooling in common. We are taking that common bond to a new level with this website. We’ll be talking about various styles of homeschooling, sharing ideas from our own homeschools, and being open and honest with our failures as well.
Because you know what? God often uses broken people. And, He’s taken 25 broken women, and brought us together. Have you ever seen a mosaic? It starts out with a bunch of broken tiles that, in and of themselves, don’t look like much. But, when an artist combines them, something beautiful results.
So, get ready! And as you wait for the launch of the website, I hope you’ll stop by our Facebook page and “like” us. We’ll be sharing information leading up to the launch on April 2nd.
We have lots of GREAT prize donations from some familiar names in homeschooling – as well as some new and exciting surprises that you definitely won’t want to miss!
In addition to the prizes, you’ll also have a chance to meet and get to know several of our contributing authors at the party.
You can RSVP for the party at the event page. Hope to see you there!
