A Trip to the Heart {Rock}


heart rock
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. Proverbs 3:5

I have posted a little before about our journey to where we are now as a family and our commitment to homeschooling our children even before we were married. There were many years it seemed we would never see the desires of our hearts, but the Lord knew His plan for us, and following Him has allowed us to homeschool our children. We are so blessed.

A recent hike with the bigs to a local landmark, Heart Rock, offered reflections on homeschooling and life.  Here is what I hope to keep in mind as we begin our trip to the heart.

  1. No, I’m from the San Luis Obispo area originally. But my parents met at Camp Seely and we went to a family camp there for years. My husband and I live kind of nearby at a camp on top of Palomar Mountain for a year though. Great area!
