I’ve been thinking about my children a lot lately, about how I’m not only teaching them, but how God is teaching me through them. He teaches me about patience, love, sacrifice, mercy, pride, trust, faith, sin, joy… I’m sure there is even more than that.

  • God thank you for my children, each unique and wonderful in their individual ways.
  • Thank you for my Princess who teaches me about compassion and loving life.
  • Thank you for my Drama Queen who teaches me about patience and adventure.
  • Thank you for my Little Prince who teaches me about providence and joy.
  • Thank you, God, for showing me the blessings of children, the joys of motherhood, and the wonder of life.
  • Thank you, God, for revealing to me that teaching them is more about you teaching my spirit than it is about me teaching them through books.
  • Thank you for also teaching me that teaching them is more about training them in character and teaching them about You.
  • Thank you for drawing Princess to you as your child, and I pray you’ll do the same for the other two.
  • Thank you, God, for every blessing.

Hey, y’all! I'm Amber, and I wear many hats: Pastor's wife, marriage advocate, eclectic homeschooler, mother of three, and domestically challenged homemaker--lovin’ life and livin’ deep in the heart of Texas.
I love to write and I hope to use that wisely, to encourage others, and for God’s glory. I seek purpose in the mundane. I want my kids to see God’s fingerprints throughout all of creation, learning, and life. As I teach our children, God is teaching me through this homeschool journey, too. I love Jesus, family, coffee, words, and the color teal.
