In 2005, shortly before my 4th child was born, I started this blog to chronicle my homeschooling and homemaking journey. As my family grew, my blog grew, and now Raising Arrows is considered the go-to resource for homeschooling multiple ages!
I am humbled and honored to be considered an expert in the large family homeschooling and homemaking world, and I am passionate about helping other moms become experts too!
Psalm 127:3-4 says:
Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord,
the fruit of the womb a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the children of one’s youth.
Blessed is the man
who fills his quiver with them!
He shall not be put to shame
when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.
