The Charlotte Mason Show | A Homeschool Podcast

Oct 24, 2023

You matter, Mama! You are God's masterpiece~ fearfully and wonderfully made. He cares so deeply about you and has His eye on you during these homeschooling years. God prepared good works for you to walk in and homeschooling is indeed one of those good works. It's a beautiful and amazing season…yet one that requires great investment. Investment of your time, your energy, your thoughts. And an even greater investment of your heart. 

I want to remind you that amidst all this investing, sacrificing, and pouring out, YOU MATTER. God is for you, and He desires that you continue growing into the beautifully unique woman He's created you to be, even as you help your children grow.

In this episode,  we'll learn ways to invest in ourselves so our children can truly have, "the best of their mother."
