Hello, my name is Renée. I am a Christian who is working to serve God through Jesus Christ my Savior. I fully believe that God is the Creator of all things and that there is nothing made that wasn’t made by Him. I fully believe that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus, to the earth and that He became a sacrifice for my and your sins, and that through obedience to Jesus Christ, I have salvation from my sins and hope of eternal life with Him.
I also am wife to a wonderful man, Michael who has a good heart and a tender soul. He walks this life with me as a leader, provider and friend. He truly is the love of my life and I am thankful to God everyday for bringing us together. We have been married for just over 19 years, working toward that 20 year mark. Our life has been filled with love and joy, but also many times of struggle and heartache. Yet, we remain committed to “till death do us part.”
We have been given a marvelous and precious gift, a son, whom we named Jonathan. He is now 8 years old. For us this gift comes with great responsibility. Like anything we choose to do, we seek to serve God as we raise him in the “nurture and admonition of the Lord.” He came to us very unexpectedly, but he has filled our life with joy and delight, and to be sure, I am grateful to God first, as well as those who were His instruments in bringing this child to our lives.
This blog will be mostly about my life, my home, my family and my adventure as a mom who home educates her child. We are just entering our 4th year of homeschool. It has been fun, scary, joyful and tearful, but I fully believe that it is what is best for my child, so I will continue on.
Last year, I named our school, Great Peace Academy, I chose this name because of this verse of scripture, Isaiah 54:13 NIV, “And you shall teach your children of the Lord, and great shall be the peace of your children.” This is my desire for my child, to know the Lord, and for him to have great peace, not only in this life but more importantly in the one to come. So my blog will be about our adventures in school, but since I believe all of life is school, it will also be about our family life and faith as well.
