What A Blessed Mom I Am!
Alyssa is a freelance writer whose work has been published by various online and print publications such as The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Encounter Magazine, Keys for Kids (Daily Devotionals for Kids), and The Kids' Ark Magazine.
My 12 year old son, Josiah, has struggled with anxiety disorder but he has come a long way. I'm proud of him for who God made him to be. He is very candid. He always displays wonderful sportsmanship. He tells me he loves me everyday...several times a day. He has a great sense of humor. He is witty and intelligent. At age 4, he started to play chess and then eventually beat even adults. When he was about 6 or 7, he was undefeated in the chess tournament between our homeschool chess club and the local public school's chess club (he played against older kids). He is athletic and he is musically gifted.
My 9 year old son, Isaiah, is a true gentleman. He is kind-hearted and always ready to lend others a hand. He is affectionate and compassionate. He generously gives me hugs and kisses. He is clever, creative, and adventurous like MacGyver. He is mechanically inclined and loves to fix things. Whenever I need assistance, he is the first one I call. He is diligent and hard-working. I'm proud of my "I think I can" man.
By the way, all three of my children excel academically. I'm a proud homschool mom. They've been in the 99th percentile on all their state-required tests. They are quick learners and curious explorers. They make my job easy. I probably could boast about them all day long. However, I want to say it again that I'm so in awe of what the Lord has done for my children, in them, and through them. "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord." (1 Corinthians 1:31b)
