16 Mistakes Moms Make

One of my favorite new responsibilities at Homeschoolblogger is to pick a blogger of the week, from their portal site. The winner receives a great prize and a chance to be featured in my articles in the print magazine.

This week's winner, Cindy Downes at Empty Nest Mom is a "Titus 2" blogger. While reading her blog I thought this post was outstanding, The 16 Mistakes Homeschool Moms Make. All the points are excellent with a special highlight on mistake number two.

They are not in agreement with their husband. Amos 3:3, "Can two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?" If your husband is not in agreement, ask God to speak to him. In the meantime, keep quiet. God will convict him if that is what He wants you to do. There may be a reason why you should wait that only God knows. Only when you are both in agreement, should you homeschool.

I think this is sound advice not just to begin homeschooling but even as you continue to educate. So many times we can get ahead of our husbands and then get frustrated when "he's not leading". Or the situation with this mom who is struggling with the direction her husband is taking. Take the time to read Cindy's post and glean the wisdom of a woman who has perservered in homeschooling and has finished well.
