What Am I Doing?

I am a mother who  homeschooled two amazing young adults and would like to share both my success and failure stories.  

My daughter, Jana, is a missionary to Burundi, a small African country.  She works as a teacher in a secondary boarding school whose goal is to raise up Christian leaders who will change the nation.

My son, Jeremy, is a musician.  He is currently on staff with Teen Mania Ministries and tours with their Acquire the Fire ministry.  

One may ask, how do you raise two children who love God and are in ministry in the society we live in?  First of all, it is not easy and my husband and I are not super Christians nor super parents.  But we stood on the verse in Proverbs 22:6,

” Start children off on the way they should go,

    and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”  (NIV)

And that is what we did.  We began praying before they were born and asked God for wisdom daily and then did what we felt was God’s best.  

If you are thinking, “Oh no!  I didn’t do that, I didn’t even know God or how to pray before my kids were born, take heart.  It is never too late to pray!  God loves you and the word says in James 5:16:

 “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”

That means if you are righteous (in right standing with God) then your prayers are both powerful and effective.  So take heart, pray, believe and never give up!

About pcobb0

I am a wife and mother to two wonderful adult children who I had the privilege of homeschooling from their pre-school through high school years. While homeschooling, I served in various leadership positions in local homeschool support groups including president. I also served as the Education Coordinator and Director of ENAACT Family Academy, a homeschool co-op in New Braunfels, Tx .Prior to homeschooling, I spent 11 years teaching elementary school aged children in both public and private schools. During my time teaching in the public school system, I earned a Master's Degree in Reading Education as well as a Reading Specialist certification. My hobbies include reading and cooking and I plan to take up scrapbooking and maybe photography in the near future. I am now an empty nester discovering what God has in store for me during this next season of life.
