A Moment to Confess

I have a confession to make: I don't read the Sonlight Moments very often.

'Sonlight Moments? What's he talking about?'


Allow me to direct your attention to my sidebars on the right there. --->

I have all your beautiful faces first because, honestly, without you swinging by every now and then, this blog would be completely pointless. Next to you, I have some buttons that have something to do with some crazy technology, but mostly I just like the color <smile>.

But now look directly under there: Other Posts of Note--which I talk about frequently because other people blog about such great stuff--and the Sonlight Moments widget (which you can add to your blog/site as well).

Sonlight Moments are great stories people send in about their adventures in homeschooling with Sonlight. We read one every Wednesday to the whole company when we gather for large group prayer. I always cheer really loudly when asked, "Who wants to hear a Sonlight Moment?"

But hypocrite that I am, I don't go out and read them on my own blog. What's worse, I was the one who got them to make me the Sonlight Moments Widget in the first place.

So, today, I decided it was time to change. And I read a few.

And I smiled.

I enjoyed myself.

And I was encouraged that homeschooling--especially homeschooling with Sonlight--works.

It is now my plan to take two minutes every day and just read a couple of these inspiring little stories. I hope you will join me, especially when you're not feeling like everything is going exactly as you would like.

Homeschooling works. And these are stories that prove it.

    LOL. I had to chuckle when I read this because I didn't read my own children's blogs. I trusted them on contact and I lived with them so why read them? But then I started and now I'm hooked. They say things in a totally different way on a blog. So I can totally relate to you confession.

    This really made me smile - and Spunky's comment as well.

    I'm so excited...we'll be Sonlighters soon as I get our curriculum order placed (well, and received). Hopefully I'll have one of those Sonlight Moments for you soon!

    Next year will be our seventh year as Sonlighters. I had never read Sonlight Moments until now. I will be coming back to Moments often. I very much enjoy this time of year when there are many homeschoolers blogging about how they did for the year. Now I will be able to read some of that same encouraging kind of stuff all year long.

    Spunky, that is fantastic. And I'm glad I'm not alone in this kind of problem. But, yes, I totally believe that they would get you hooked <smile>.

    Melonie, I can't wait for your Sonlight Moments <smile>.

    Ken, I'm glad these have been as encouraging for you as they have been for me. Thanks for reading <smile>.

    I hadn't read it either. Not sure I knew it was there. Thanks for the reminder!

    Karen, glad you enjoyed reading them! <smile> May they be a source of encouragement when you need it.
