What Is Your Goal?

My goal for dd and ds is what is living according to the 4 L's. Live, Love, Laugh, Learn.

Live in the moment. Enjoy where you are right now. Don't worry about what has happened or what will happen. Just be right here right now. That is all God is asking you to handle.

Love deeply. I have prayed to God that he let people feel loved when they are around me. I want my children to learn this too. I am reading a book that is teaching me the 7 points of love which are: Kindness, Patience, Forgiveness, Humility, Courtesy, Generosity, & Honesty. If any of these is missing in a relationship it will be found lacking the fullness of love. We will be working on these constantly and asking in every situation, especially difficult ones, if any of these is missing.

Laugh hard, loud, and often. This is among my favorites because I love to laugh. I think most things are funny. When my husband I get into a heated discussion it always ends in laughter. I love to hear other people laugh especially my husband and children.

This is a birthday party we had for my husband, which is why I have on that outfit. LOL

Learn as much as you can while you can. I have learned that I am an autodidact. I love learning, but I am self taught. I haven't finished my associates degree, because I hate taking classes that I am not interested in. For the sake of finishing what I start I am going to finish it, but I know more about myself now. I know now that I will probably never have a higher degree, but I will always take classes and be self taught. I want my children to grow in their desire to know. I want them to want to know any and everything. I want to stir up that curiosity that has been put into a dormant state by large classroom sizes and one size fits all learning.


  1. This is my first time here and I am going to keep looking ... I was wondering if you use a specific homeschool program? I like your 4 L's and as I am 20 credits from my Bachelors, love learning, have learned so much, BUT can not seem to complete my journey!

  2. Welcome Amy! I don't use a specific program and I'm not sure I ever will. I will probably be considered ecletic. I do use time4learning sometimes and I ordered Rosetta Stone which I love.
