Farewell Georgetown Home School Group

Eleven years ago God called me to step out in faith to begin a home school group in the area where I live. I was, to say the least, terrified. I was currently directing a very successful group in a neighboring county - and frankly I didn’t want to "step out in faith." ~ I was satisfied where I was. But the Lord had really been working on my heart all winter long. I had taken an exodus from an addiction of soap operas that had lasted for 12 long years and my heart was open to do whatever God wanted me to do with my life. Eleven springs ago that was the greatest experience of my life ~ second only to the day I was saved at twelve years of age.

At that time there had been yet another school shooting and God impressed on my heart to begin a program that would help families to home school more easily with the support they would need to be successful. And, so, The Georgetown Home School Group was born.

Monday night I bade farewell to that "step of faith." God had impressed on my heart that it was time ~ time to hand the baton to the next runner. It was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. But I’m thankful for eleven glorious years of my life ~ thankful that God chose me to direct such an awesome group for so long ~ thankful that the God who called me eleven years ago will call me again to serve Him in some capacity.

I close with a walk down memory lane ~ come along and see some of the greatest home school families of all time.

5 Thoughts On The Matter:

I just want you to know that you and the Co-op have made a huge impression on me and my family. We have enjoyed this past year and hate that we won't see you next year. We'll be continually praying for you and your family. Please keep us update on how you are doing. Thanks again for a wonderful year.

You know the role co-op has played in our family's homeschool for SIX years. God most certainly blessed your leap of faith eleven years ago, and I know He will bless your new leap of faith. You are a precious, precious person and will be missed.

I'm watching the slide show in your other post right now and it's bringing tears to my eyes. Look at all the children who have been blessed by the co-op! Not to mention all the mommas.

God used you in a mighty way. I can't wait to see how He's going to use you now.

Much love as always,
