The last two weeks have been a bit of a rough start to the new home school year. I didn't have all of my curriculum yet, I had an eye infection, my laptop broke, my camera broke... you get the idea.
And every once in a while I find myself wondering what in the world I'm doing. My doubts start gnawing at me and I begin questioning myself and asking God if I really am following His lead.
On days I've felt this way I'll pull up one of the Beerhorst's blogs ( Brenda's or Rick's) or their Flickr and become inspired all over again. Check this amazing family out!

This week they will be at Artprize here in Grand Rapids, which happens to also be where they reside. I can't wait to go and see their project! What an incredible message it sends. Curious??? You can find out more about it here.
Anyway, they encourage me to keep writing, painting, crocheting, gardening, seeking God's direction.... you name it. But, even more importantly, to be the kind of parent/teacher that will think and live outside of the box. (The box is dangerous, in my opinion.) One that shuns the fear of being different from everyone else and instead, embraces it... A rebel of sorts. Ooh, I like the sound of that. ;)
Just wanted to share them with you too!
Have a blessed weekend! XX ~ Jen
