Hi! I’m Crystal. I’m a wife, mother, home educator, and small business owner. That’s a lot of hats to wear!
Not to mention I’m also a bibliophile (in other words, I REALLY like books) and can never find enough time to read.
I know what it’s like to have a lot to do and not enough time in which to do it.
I’ve struggled to figure out how to fit it all in.
After all, I want the best for my children. I want them to thrive! And I want a calm, peaceful home atmosphere where we enjoy learning.
If you are like most of my readers, you wear many hats too.
You take pride in caring for your family; you want what’s best for them.
You want to invest in your relationships and have fun spending time together.
You want to provide a quality education for your children and you want them to enjoy learning.
But you are overwhelmed by ALL.THE.THINGS. Laundry. Cooking. Cleaning. Chauffeuring. Teaching. Playdates.
And you know you should take care of yourself too (sleep more, eat healthier, exercise, do something fun just for yourself). But when will you fit that in?!
- Do you feel overwhelmed by everything you need to do?
- Do you feel like your family is struggling to simply get through the day?
- Do you want to bring joy back to your homeschool?
- Do you wish your family were truly flourishing?
I know how you feel!
At one time, I thought I needed to prepare home-cooked meals every night, my children needed to be involved in multiple sports and other activities, we needed to have playdates with friends every week, my house needed to be neat and tidy, and we had to accomplish all of the school lessons I had planned.
I was overwhelmed trying to do it all.
After much prayer (and tears), God gently reminded me that I don’t have to do it all. In fact, I can’t do it all. He has shown me how to prioritize and take care of the important things in life—relationships, health, discipleship, and preparing my children for life. By keeping the end goal in mind, I am able to take it one day at a time as I seek to fulfill God’s calling on my life and prepare my children for wherever their passions and callings may lead them. I can rest in knowing that I am doing enough! I realized that my purpose boiled down to three things.
LIVE simply. LOVE deeply. LEARN joyfully.
I have learned a lot as I sought to live out that purpose. My family is still busy, but our days are now filled with purpose and intention instead of hurry and stress. We still make mistakes and sometimes get overwhelmed. When we do, I now know what to do. I know how to go back to our purpose so we can thrive again instead of feeling like we were running a race and always falling behind.
What Triumphant Learning is all about
I believe you too can live a purpose-filled life.
And I believe your family can flourish!
It is a challenge in today’s fast-paced society to choose what is best for your family and to be confident in your choices.
My mission is to help overwhelmed homeschool moms simplify their life and homeschool so they can create a homeschool they love.
I look forward to sharing practical suggestions that help my family live simply, love deeply, and learn joyfully. I pray some of those suggestions will be just what you need to hear! I’ll also sometimes share what hasn’t worked for us so maybe you can avoid the same mistakes.
