So if you have been looking at my website at any point, you’ve probably been wondering, “What happened to the magazine launch n October 1st?”. I had two choices with this: 1) edit the post so it didn’t have that in it or 2) be honest and straightforward about it. As you can tell from this post, I decided to be transparent about it. 🙂
I would LOVE to create a magazine targeting homeschool moms as a way to encourage and equip. I had things starting to come together and then it seemed like one thing after another kept coming up and getting in the way of it launching. With each obstacle, I felt this tug in my heart know it wasn’t the time to do it. My life is very busy and crazy between homeschooling, my husband being a pastor and our church continually growing, keeping up with meals and laundry that never ends. So I can only focus on so many things at a time (I know something that is a” but something hard for me to remember ;)). When my focus is taken off of those things that are the most important (God, husband, kiddos, homeschooling and that ever growing pile of laundry…), things start to fall apart and I can’t give my best to each of those primary areas.
Which brings me to the magazine…I know that right now the Lord is wanting me to continue with the Simply Following homeschooling events. Our first one went incredible (post to come soon)! And I love the face to face interaction with people and being able to provide that environment for moms to connect more. But have felt that, for now, the magazine is on hold. Who knows what the future holds (and I hope it is still in the future as it was looking so cool! ;)), but I always want to feel the Lord’s peace each step I take with the extra things I do.
So my next post will be all about our homeschool night and the next night we have planned for January! It will also hold what my plan is for coming post. 🙂
