As you have heard before
teaching music gives me joy.
Some photos of my choir students
over the years.....
This season of my life ends in March.
We will do our final co-op concert together.
Next year it will be another person's project.
As my own children have grown older
and need me less for their academics
I have wondered what I would do
What would my purpose be?
As a homeschool Mom there
was no question.
It is a full time job.
You get up in the morning and you teach.
Math, history, english, writing, civics
and so much more.
You shape lives.
You invest yourself into
teaching your children
to know the Lord and His Word.
All the while knowing that
the work of salvation is HIS
trusting that you are a part of
HIS plan in the lives of your children.
Many of you were reading here last year
as the boys were preparing to graduate.
I went through a serious funk.
Questioning what would be next.
Well, those answers are coming into focus.
For one thing, Chelsea's goals will involve me.
We will very likely take
business management courses
and get food prep certified
We'll work toward opening
a small cafe in a few years.
Beyond that, the candle business is growing
and I hope to expand it, as well.
But, the thing that I never saw coming
is something I have become passionate about.
Teaching music one on one.
I now have several students with
whom I am working on voice.
Another one popped up just last week.
I have not been able to work with her yet....
but I cannot wait!
Such a diamond in the rough!!!!
Monday afternoon I met for the second time
with a young man who just loves to sing.
He is making progress.
It is such a huge blessing to hear him
working hard to achieve a goal.
Tiny steps of improvement are to be celebrated.
This appears to be one of my "next steps".
Teaching young people the joy of music.
Showing them how to use the gift of voice.
The past two days on this blog
I shared about two things
that were not mine...
a dog and a pair of jeans.
But today is different.
This is definitely
and it sounds
