I’m Jo, mum to seven children aged 0 to 16. I’m a child of God by faith in Jesus Christ. I’m married to a man whose faith and integrity inspire me. I homeschool my younger children using the Charlotte Mason method, but that is less important to me than bringing them up to love God and love other people. I am convinced that only the Spirit of God can bring lasting change and fruit in our lives, and that Jesus is the treasure our hearts long for.
Our house is cluttered and smaller than the average NZ home. We like music and sing in harmony (sometimes very badly). We have far too many books. We also have too many chickens, but definitely not too many children.
I started this blog because I wanted to write about some of the things that have happened to me. God has been working in my life in a powerful way and I hope I can bring hope and encouragement to others who may have similar struggles.
