How do you do it with "all those kids"?

"People ask me all the time how I do it with all "those"
kids. I do it by the grace of God. My mind isn't focused on this earth, it's focused in Heaven. That's where my "me" time is, that's where my peace is! That's where my vacations, riches and treasures lie. So when I get frustrated, I remember that my goals are Heavenly. This world is dying but I will live forever
doing God's will."
- Anna Cross

Sometimes life as a wife, mother, homemaker and homeschooling mother can get overwhelming. When you add in a newborn, 8 sick children, 3 solid weeks of illness and then the hospitalization of your 2 week old for RSV and viral pneumonia, which then adds up to close to 4 weeks with 2 hours of sleep per could really pull your hair out and want to throw in the proverbial towel. However, the focus must remain on the prize!

"I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." Philippians 3:14

Keep on going, mamas! Your job is IMPORTANT and your focus should be HEAVENLY!

I agree :) I get the question often and I "only" have 4 children. We do it because we want to serve God and teach them to serve him. May God continue to bless your family.
