HeatherL has not received any gifts yet
My name is Heather. My husband, Christopher and I have been married for 13 wonderful years. We have been blessed with 5 children, with 3 angels awaiting us in Heaven.
We began our homeschooling journey 10+ years ago. Since that day we have found out that our children and I have a mitochondrial disorder. It causes a large variety of medical and learning problems. As the years passed it was obvious that I too had serious health issues.
This has brought our homeschooling journey to many unexpected places. We have homeschooled in the hospital, many a doctor’s office, and therapy parking lots. Four of the kids are on the autism spectrum and have varying levels of sensory issues. The wide variety of problems the children have dealt with or are dealing with has left me uniquely positioned to cover first hand a large variety of problems.
The Lord is guiding us through this as He has every other storm we have faced. If I can pass on one lesson it is to listen to God. He is the goal at the end of the homeschooling journey.
My husband and I have been praying for years that our trials could be put to the Lord's glory.
God bless my friends!

If you have dealt with a health problem that has no diagnosis you will understand. For over 6 years Chris and I have been searching for an answer. We knew several of our children had autism, immune problems,
muscle problems, GI problems and seizures to name a few. When we would
get one problem worked out another would crop up. It was like chasing a
wild fire across a windy wheat field. It seemed to be always just out of
The problems also defied…Continue
