You Are Perfect – Because You Are You

Blessed is She Quote

Comparison can get the best of us.

While I was growing up, I constantly compared myself to others, it seemed there was always someone better, prettier, more accomplished than me… the list could go on and on.

As I got older, I still have to fight with the voices inside my head telling me I’m not good enough, pretty enough, strong enough…

It doesn’t stop, and in reality, it probably never will, but that doesn’t mean I have to let it take over my head and heart.

Charlotte Mason Homeschool - Year 1 - Term 1 - Modern Momma Musings

We homeschooled over the summer so we are almost finished with our Charlotte Mason Year 2 Term 1, but I thought I would share with you what we have used for this term. We use Ambleside Online with a Catholic twist. I have added and subtracted a few things to make them more fitting to our faith and have really loved the way it has been working for our family. Here’s a peek into our curriculum.

Planning and Organizing our Homeschool Year – Part 1

Planning and Organizing our Homeschool Year – Part 1

As you probably know, we homeschool year round. So planning and organizing our homeschool for the year, begins around Christmas. This allows me to plan the entire next year and be ready to begin it when we finish the previous year.

Basically, over the Christmas holiday when my hubby is home a bit more and there are more down days, I take a few days to focus on the next year’s schedule. This year we were in the middle of Year One of Ambleside Online and so I was scheduling out my Year Two of Ambleside Online over the break.

Let go. Let God.

Let go. Let God - Modern Momma Musings

It’s been a year since I began to write about my journey in the NICU. It sure doesn’t seem like a year ago that we were sitting at Sugar Plum’s incubator, praying and watching her through the ups and downs.

We’ve come a long way since those long, hard days and nights in the NICU. To this day, I feel like I am still growing stronger in my faith because of our struggles we endured those few months.

One major thing that still stands out today is “Let go. Let God.”

Let go. Let God - Modern Momma Musings

Our time in the NICU made me learn to, “Let go. Let God.” and even today I am still following this train of thought. There are so many things in life that we need to let go and let God take control. So many moments when we feel things are spiraling and while we try with all our might to keep control, it’s those moments we need to let go most of all. Those are the hardest moments, though.

I’m not saying drop everything and give up. I’m saying pray and ask for help in your journey. Instead of making decisions on your own, ask God to guide you and then listen to his guidance.

It’s difficult to put a task into another persons hands, but we are not putting them in someone else’s hands we are putting them in the one and only, God’s hands. He knows what’s best for us and will help us through.

So next time you feel like you can’t do it alone, pray, listen and have faith. It’s hard but He knows what you need. Let go. Let God.
