The Busy Homeschool Mom's Guide to Romance (Session 4)

The Busy Homeschool Mom’s Guide to Romance

Speaker – Heidi St. John

When my husband pushed me I willingly walked into this session I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.  Would it be crowded?  Are there lots of homeschool moms out there willing to admit that sometimes we can tend to lack a little in the romance department?  Or would it be like a desert place, us moms all knowing full well that our husbands totally understand that we are busy and romance just has to take a back burner?  Well apparently we are an honest group because the huge room was quite full of moms, babies, and yes even a few dads.

As I fully expected Heidi brought it once again.  Homeschooling mom or not we’ve all become victim to the parallel living that Heidi refers to.  I loved her illustration of how  husbands and wives lives should intertwine instead of running parallel.  They must intersect often and the must have Christ at the center of them.

We must stay true to that girl that once pined for his attention, thought he was superman, and made him feel special.  We simply cannot let homeschooling our children or anything else come before keep our marriage.  I think her quote is a clear and realistic view of the dangers of letting this happen.

“If the enemy can take out your marriage he has a clear shot at your kids.” – Heidi St. John

We must take the time to work on our marriage and I think Heidi done a great job of reminding us of that.

  1. I agree that it was a good workshop. It was an excellent reminder to keep marriage a top priority, in spite of our busy homeschooling lives. Thanks for blogging your wonderful insights!

  2. So, so so true, and I need to be reminded often just how important this part of our marriage is. Sometimes, ok too many times, I take for granted my sweet, understanding husband, and give in to tiredness. Thanks for this reminder!
