How often does thankfulness cross your mind and heart apart from the Thanksgiving holiday?
It takes effort to be thankful. It is not a natural human thought. Humans are selfish by nature and to be thankful means we must look beyond ourselves.
Raising children with an attitude of gratitude doesn't happen overnight. It begins when your child enters the world and start learning from you.
As homeschool parents we have been given the responsibility to raise, nurture and love our children but also to educate them. It is all intertwined. Most of the time you cannot and should not separate them.
Parenting + Homeschooling = Everyday life
As my children entered the teen years, I started thinking of myself as a mom who was raising leaders. Soon my children, one by one, would leave our home. My prayer was that they would leave know Christ personally, equipped with the leadership skills learned and the gifts and talents given to them by God to change their world.
I was raising four leaders and I would help change the world for the better, one child at a time. What an awesome responsibility, and one that I was so very grateful and honored to have been given.
Find this complete blog post, a Raising a Leader Activity, as well as a Must Do High School Checklist on How to Homeschool Your Child where I was privileged to write this guest post.
