How – Five Minute Friday

I am getting myself back into blogging. I know, I said this before, but I am serious this time! I want to keep sharing with everyone about our journey, homeschool and live in general! So, what better way then the Five Minute Friday blog to help me out!

This week the word is How. I have five minutes to write, no planning, no nothing…just write. So, here I go…


Wow, what a word…one that I ask myself everyday. How do I make it through the day? With homeschooling, working from home, taking care of a disabled husband, taking care of myself. How do I do it?

Not only that, but I have others ask me, How do you do it? I don’t know. I don’t think about it. I just do it. But when I do think about it, I do know How.

The only way on How I do what I do, is because of my faith in God. I rely on Him for my strength, my willpower, my everything. I could not do what I do without Him.

I love what I do, I love my family, and I would never stop homeschooling or stop helping my husband. They are my why, so when people ask me How, I guess I am surprised. I don’t worry about the How, I know that will be taken care of by God. If He didn’t want me to be in this life, He would not have put me in this life.

I have to remind myself, when I ask myself How, when others ask me How, I need to give the glory to Him for giving me the strength to do what needs to be done!

Do you want to find others who took the time to write about How for five minutes? You can find them here.

  1. It sounds like we sing the same song “I am going to start writing more.” For lent this year, I decided to write everyday on my blog. I ended up missing a couple days along the way, but the daily effort to turn to scripture and then write about it was amazing. God truly blessed my efforts and I grew so much. Then Easter came and went, and my daily practice became weekly or less. It’s not always easy, but keep it up if you enjoy it and it benefits you.

  2. I think it is interesting when I have been asked “How do you do it?” also. My usual response has always been some variation of “I do the next thing” or “It has to be done.”

    Pondering the How question, though, is good. It is good to be reminded of WHY I do the things that people are “howing” me about. And it is better to be reminded that God is behind all of those Hows.

  3. Good post, good writing.

    I try not to overthink ‘how’, but then, no-one has ever accused me of overthinking anything.
