I’ve been asked by many people how we do it. I think they mean how do we handle life with six kids–when one of them is in a wheelchair and has a severe disability. How are we able to do day-day tasks, and still manage to homeschool, go shopping, raise farm animals, and do everything else that we do.
Here is the answer–by the grace of God. I fully trust that He will never give me more than I can handle. I am honest about the fact that without Him–I would utterly fail; no matter how many kids I have. He has brought resources into my life at the perfect time that have helped us to adapt a little bit. Books, blog posts, sermons…these resources come in a variety of methods. But we are so thankful for them.
We keep growing. We keep tweaking. We definitely aren’t there yet–I doubt that we’ll ever be. But this series will look at some of the everyday ways that we manage life. Topics that I will cover include:
And maybe more. If you have a question about something in particular that we do–ask away! I’ll try my best to answer. Just remember that this is just what works for us. We are a work in progress.
