Today we are privileged to have Jennifer as our featured guest-post writer.
She is a stay-at-home mom to two young daughters and writes a blog at Jennifer A. Janes. She is involved with a program for young writers in her area and is a teacher-consultant with the local site of the National Writing Project. She is also an advocate/case manager for her younger daughter, who has chronic health issues, sensory processing disorder, and dyslexia. Jennifer has written several articles about special needs issues at the “Homeschool Village.”
I’m seeing the word intentional everywhere I turn. It started when I thought about my daughter turning eight years old, and I was struck by how quickly my time with her is passing by. I was alarmed because I haven’t taught her everything I want her to know before she leaves the nest. I realize I’ve still got time with her, but if I don’t become more intentional about teaching her what I believe God wants me to impart to her, she will leave home—and I will not have done my job.
