About Rest for the Weary

I hope you will find this little spot a place of rest and refreshment for your soul. My intention is to build up women in the trenches of homeschooling. This includes veterans who are burned out and former homeschooling moms who have decided for one reason or another to put some or all of their children in school. Thanks for stopping by. Take a deep breath of refreshment for your weary soul.

Guarding against legalism

Here is a good article on legalism from Catholic.net.  It really explains why trying to require things like dresses only, no jewelry or make-up are wrong and thus legalistic.(i.e. requiring things the church does not)  I have been thinking about this issue a lot lately.  Maybe I will do a series of posts on Catholic legalism which is totally different from what protestants think.

Our children's happiness

Here is an incredible article (it is long) on how people are obsessed with their children's happiness.  Be forwarned, there are a few bad words in it, particularly in the first sentence or two.  This article really made me think about one of the reasons I have homeschooled in the past; to keep my children from feeling hurt, rejection, etc.  Really was good food for thought.
