The day you became a mother, your purpose on this earth changed forever. From that moment forward, every decision you make is linked back to your children in one way or another. Think about it. When these questions roll through your mind, do you consider how the outcome will affect your child?
What’s for dinner?
You wonder, “Have the week’s meals been healthy enough so far? Tonight, we need more vegetables and less mac n’ cheese. Eh, maybe next week…”
Should I buy this dress?
“Hm,” you think. “Do I really need it? We still need to buy school supplies and put more money towards the kids’ college fund.”
Where should we go on vacation this year?
“What’s going to be the most entertaining for the kids but not break the budget…”
Moms Inspire Each Other
You ask yourself these questions because you are a great mom, and you’re always trying to do what’s best for your children. But sometimes, you need support. We hear from moms all the time who find themselves looking for a better way to balance everything on their plates.
While we feel confident in our ability to write a thorough, effective, Christian homeschool curriculum and provide you with every support material you can think of, it’s your fellow homeschool moms who can truly empathize with your day-to-day challenges and provide first-hand support, advice, and answers to tough questions. Because they’ve been through it before. Whether they’re the next-door neighbors you see every day or long-distance friends developed through a private Facebook group, you have one hugely important common thread—you’re all moms! And you want to help each other. We love that about homeschool moms. It’s inspiring to watch.
Sharing All Your Motherly Wisdom
There’s no handbook for being a mom. You rely on each other for support, and you put your faith in God’s Word to guide you and guard your hearts. But it’s not always easy. We want to help build a support system for you.
Over the coming months, we will be releasing a new series across social media (Facebook, Instagram, & YouTube) and our At Home blog, entitled, “Real Talk: #AbekaMomtoMom.” You can expect to see real moms–you might even know them personally–expressing some of the same questions, concerns, and hurdles you have. They’ll be sharing their advice, their experiences, and their encouragement with you along the way. And we want to hear what you have to say in response!
But We Need Your Help
To make this exciting “Real Talk: #AbekaMomtoMom” series a reality, we need you. We want to hear what your homeschool family struggles with. Or, what’s working for you? What tips do you have for other homeschool moms? We want to hear it all—the real talk. Leave a comment below with topics you want us to cover.
In the meantime, start using the hashtag #AbekaMomtoMom when you post anything on social media that you think other homeschool moms in this amazing Abeka community can relate to!
