Welcome! My name is Shirley, and I am a Christian, Wife, homeschooling mum, freelance writer and blogger.
I am veteran homeschooling mum, we are into our 11th year of homeschooling. My eldest daughter graduated our homeschool in 2016 and is currently studying Art and Design at art college. My youngest daughter is 16 and has two years left in our homeschool.
11 years ago God called us to teach our children at home and to bring them up knowing, loving and serving Him. I admit that this journey has not been the easy choice and along with the multitude of blessed and precious memories we have created I have suffered with periods of self-doubt, fear, and burnout. However God is exceedingly good and He has covered all of my short-comings and made my life's work of raising and teaching my children a blessing and it is with great joy that we see our children walking with the King!
I am passionate about keeping my home and making it a haven for my family, raising Kingdom children, homeschooling, and living out my faith daily in action and seasonally by observing the liturgical year.
We have followed a largely Charlotte Mason philosophy in our homeschool. In exploring Miss Mason's philosophy and putting into action in our homeschool, I personally found a deep passion for nature. I am blessed to contribute to various educational publications, most of what I write is about nature study and encouraging families to take up this way of life in their homeschools and lives.
Thank you for popping by and visiting, please feel free to chime in by leaving me a comment. It is good to hear from my readers and not just see you on my stats.
May you experience every blessing today.
