I started a review of A Mom Just Like You by homeschooling mother of ten, Vicki Farris, yesterday, but got sidetracked as I reflected on why it was such a blessing to me to read it as I was plugging along through the end of our school year in survival mode While I don t share her every conviction, Vicki s transparency and wealth of experience gave me the encouragement and focus to finish this school year strongdescribes the book with Let s face itthe bulk of home schooling falls on mom s shoulders Although very rewarding, it is not an easy task No one knows this better than home schooling mother of 10, Vickie Farris Through her warm, practical style, Farris, will fill you with encouragement and practical suggestions for those days when the challenge seems overwhelming And for those thinking of embarking on the home school adventure, she offers her insights gleaned from years of experience, giving confidence and resolve After all, she s a mom just like you Hey Momyou can do it She had me at hello well, okay, it was a few pages in with her disclaimer It s not that I m all that patient or organized It s pretty much just the grace of God that gets me through 26 Okay, good, cuz if it requires an incredibly patient or ultra organized mom, I give up.I appreciated several messages she wove throughout the book.1 Children are a blessing and God uses them to shape us into the image of Christ The reason most people do not want a lot of children is that let s face it children are a lot of trouble and a lot of work.They require us to grow up and shape up, to deny ourselves and becomelike Christ if we are to have any measure of success with them And what a genuine blessing that is Children force us onto our knees, drive us to the Lord, and sharpen us for even greater service 104 With little ones utterly dependent on us, we have a special chance to model God s self giving love for His children Remember that with greater freedom comes greater temptation to live for our own pleasure Rather than complaining about your current situation, or envying those who do not have small children, rejoice that your life naturally compels you to the kind of service to which God calls each of us 207 2 Stop striving to be The Perfect Mom or The Perfect Homeschooling Mom Our hope is in God alone and as a friend said to me this weekendisn t what s going to get me into heaven you fill in the blank with whatever it is you re trying to kill yourself to do perfectly Curriculum and schedules are helpful tools, but they are not miracle solutions that will make us perfect teachers and mothers Our hope is in God alone 133 We eat simple meals for breakfast and lunch, with most of the kids getting the food themselves Yes, this usually means cold cereal instead of eggs and toast, and hot pockets or macaroni and cheeseoften than homemade soup and sandwiches, but I know I would go crazy if I tried to be The Perfect Mom in everything 214 I signed her up to be my new best friend, right here No condemnation from this mama in the trenches 3 Examine God s purpose for you in your current stage of life and take each opportunity for service to the Lord in prayer before giving an answer I want to encourage you that God gives each of us different seasons of life in which to accomplish different tasks for Him When you have young children, God s primary assignment for you is in the home When they are grown and gone, He will have other jobs for you to do But there are certain things we can and should do to serve others even now When approached with a new job or project, do we automatically take it to prayer and determine whether or not it is something God would have us do Or do we simply act on the spur of the moment, and under the influence of our current emotions 167.4 Develop the proper attitude toward times of refreshment as gifts from God When you do have a chance for a break, receive it not with a sense of guilt, nor with a sense of entitlement, but with simple gratitude to the God who cares for your every need 216.She also shared several encouraging passages from Scripture, stories from her experiences, and practical tips that anyone can apply to enhance their days of parenting and educating My favorite one that I immediately applied involved our daily Bible study When we lived in Missouri, we had a great daily routine in which everyone met at the table at 7 am to read the Bible with Daddy before he went to work Since he now has to be AT work at 7, this wonderful routine has gone to the wayside and we have had a difficult time establishing a consistent method of Bible reading with all five children together Vicki s suggestion is perfect for this season of our life Each child has an assigned day for selecting a passage of Scripture and reading it aloud for the rest of us I am often blessed to hear the Bible verses that my children choose, and it sets a good tone for the entire school day 52.I am so thrilled to have happened upon this book on the shelf of my local library while helping my son find books about small engine repair The Lord certainly used it for refreshment for this tired mama. I read this while I was really burned out and it brought me right out of it Vickie Farris is a homeschooling mom of 10 In fact her daughter actually wrote the book for her because she didn t have the time Her use a scripture is beautiful and very helpful. This book was Dewey Decimaled in the homeschooling section 371 but it was pretty much just a Christian memoir of a woman who had ten kids and homeschooled them, and her husband is Mike Farris, the president of HSLDA Small to no focus on her methodologies of homeschooling or household logistics, and bigger focus on her own faith development as well as that of her three eldest daughters Also a solid emphasis on letting God take control of your womb to give you as many children as He sees fit The majority of her ten children were conceived after she turned 35 It was interesting butof a family marital Christian resource, NOT a homeschooling resource. Can not say enough good things about this book It is for homeschooling moms, but really every Christian mom should read it If you don t homeschool, just skip those chapters Farris is uplifting and inspiring throughout I borrowed a copy from a friend, but may have to buy my own to keep on the nightstand One of the best mom books I have read, ever.

Loved this book It was very different from what I expected, but it was a sweet encouragement to me I especially liked how Vicky Harris gives advice and shares her deep convictions, while at the same time being gracious and gentle through out. Interesting to read this, as I ve heard about the Farris family for years through my own family s involvement in HSLDA, and I met Mike Farris when I went to PHC for camp one year She seems to be a genuine woman sharing freely and honestly of the joys and struggles of homeschooling working with a large family I enjoyed the book. I really enjoyed this book It was about homeschooling and it brought back some good memories and also, some stressful ones But, all in all, I was grateful for my homeschooling years with my children. Although some of this book was not applicable to me as I do not have a big family, it was encouraging as a homeschool mom I like the fact that she shares her victories and areas of weakness, it makes her real and her wisdom advice attainable I would give it 3 1 2 Stars
