I’m joining in the Ultimate Blog Party for 2012 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom! This is a time where I can get to know other bloggers and others Mums can get to know me.
So if you have arrived here from the Ultimate Blog Party – welcome! Let me introduce my family, my blog and my heart.
My name is Belinda Letchford and I live in the north west of Australia on a small farm, just out from a small town. My husband flies around to the cattle stations of the north as a vet. He sees so much of our beautiful outback Australia. We have four children: Joshua 18, studying university externally, Jessica 17, taking a gap year to do the things that delight her heart, Naomi 15, and Daniel 12 still homeschooling.
This is my sixth year of blogging – my blog is now called Live life with your Kids! When I started it was a place for me to process my thinking as we moved from schooling at home to a discipleship model of home learning. I then began my website: Lifestyle Homescool, though continue to blog as well. I write on my blog as I think through principles and practices in discipling (mentoring/training) my children.
My heart for my family (which is then reflected in my blog and website and newsletter) is that they learn to love God and desire His ways, that they love Him with their whole heart, mind and soul. That is that every passion, desire, character, choice, belief springs out of their love for God. I am not just teaching them their 3 R’s, History and Science – I am teaching their whole being.
If you’d like to dig deeper into my blog here is a cross section of different posts
- Reading Good Books isn’t Enough
- Choose the Gaps
- Love God, Love one another, Building Character
