Freedom in Education. . .Risen Motherhood

One of my blog goals is to share Gospel-centered and practical resources for my readers. Resources that encourage my own heart. Resources that point my heart to the Gospel. Resources that challenge my thinking. Resources that promote greater spiritual growth in my life. Resources that help me make wise decisions.

Several months ago, I was introduced to Risen Motherhood with Emily and Laura. I love listening to their podcast, using their resources, and reading their blog. Motherhood is not for the faint of heart! As a mom to 5 children,  I am in constant need of Gospel truths to guide, encourage, motivate, and convict my own heart. Each time I listen to a RM podcast, I find that my spirit is lifted and my love for motherhood is renewed! I find such hope in the Gospel!

Recently, RM featured a series on “Freedom in Education.” These podcasts and blog posts are a MUST LISTEN/READ for parents! Making wise educational choices for our children require that we be well-informed, prayerful, aware of individual needs of our children, and mindful of our current season of life.

Educational choices for my children are in constant review in my home. Currently, I have all 5 children (K5-9th grade) enrolled in our local public school. However, we have experienced both Christian private school and homeschool in past seasons of life. In my years of parenting school-age children, I have found such freedom in the Gospel for our family choices of education. I have also experienced God’s faithfulness with each prayerful educational choice.

Fellow moms, I encourage you to check out these awesome resources, explore the RM blog, and faithfully listen to the RM podcast. Your heart will be blessed and encouraged in so many ways. Most of all, your heart will always be directed to the truths and hope found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
