Friday's Answer: Balancing Act! Part 2

How do I balance the demands of leadership with my family and own homeschool?

We've answered this question once, but let's approach it from another angle as well.

We want you to remember three important things about striking a balance:

1. You don't have to be perfect to be a successful leader. Be your lovely self! Expect to make some mistakes. If someone has a problem with that, that's their problem, not yours.

2. You don't have to be perfect for your group to be great. There will be gaps in your leadership. Let others fill in. If no one fills in, it may not be something the Lord wanted done right now.

3. Part of finding the balance with all the pressing things you must do is for you to release yourself from trying to be everything to and for everybody. You can't be. Only Christ can be all things to all people.

Isn't this freeing? We want you to feel liberated to be the homeschool group leader YOU were created to be. And only that!

Appreciating all our wonderful variety of talents,
Kristen & Denise
