Among other things, working simply for me means having the blessed opportunity to work at home. There have been many, many days weeks months over the past few years when I could not have fathomed physically going to a regular job. It is God’s grace to me that He gives me work to do at home and a husband with whom to share it.
One project we have been working on for a few months is with Kim at WriteShop. I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to edit her new primary writing curriculum and David has been doing the book layout. I thoroughly enjoy doing curriculum and, at the rate we are going, we will have a full homeschooling curriculum library before we “officially” start with Caroline (God willing). By editing curriculum I have the opportunity to keep one foot in the education world, meet new people, and prepare myself for homeschooling all while contributing to our family income. It truly is amazing to see how God has orchestrated all of this over the years since I graduated from college.
A few weeks ago Kim interviewed David and then me on her blog about our experiences as work-at-home professionals. Seeing Kim’s comment here today on another post made me realize that perhaps a few people would be interested in reading more about our work. And even if you aren’t interested in that, Kim has a wonderful blog full of excellent writing resources, ideas and encouragement.
My interview covers working at home with a toddler, the editing process, thoughts on education in general, etc.
