31 Affirmations from Proverbs 31

Sometimes we think of the Proverbs 31 woman as an unachievable to-do list for women. It is not a brag list of a fictitious woman to make you feel guilty or stressed, instead it’s an example for us of who we are created to be. The Proverbs 31 women did not wake up one morning and have all the answers and experience perfection, she took on one thing at a time, mastering each before she added on her next skill to master. You are not expected to be all things all the time. Take some time each day to remind yourself Whose you are; your identity is in Him.

A Sample School Schedule

This is a sample of what our school schedule looks like this year with 4 kiddos being homeschooled. Keep in mind that I apply times at the beginning of the year simply so I can see what my days might look like. The times are not exact, and within a few weeks of school, we learn what topics can be learned independently, and thus can be done during a time when Mom is working with a sibling. This means our days don’t typically take as long as it looks on here once we are in the year.
