Welcome to The Blessed Homeschool Life!
My name is Jeanni. I am the Daughter of the King, blessed wife. mom to 2 awesome kids, veteran homeschooler, and passionate Mompreneur.
In our family, we believe life is a gift from God and our faith guides everything we do. We believe that the greatest legacy we can leave on this earth is that in some way, we led others to know the Savior and Redeemer of our lives, Jesus. Without Him, we are nothing. We truly live a blessed life.
I am passionate about serving others, whether it is through our local church, women’s charities (including our own family-founded, Baskets of Grace), or through this blog. I am also the Leader of the Charleston Chapter of Propel Women. Never think God can’t use you or that you are not enough! God does not call the equipped. He equips the called!
One organization I thoroughly support is Give Kids the World Village located in Kissimmee, Florida. So much so, that I have become one of their Awareness Angels. Give Kids the World partners with wish-granting agencies like Make-a-Wish all over the world and provides week-long all-expenses paid vacations to children with life threatening illnesses and their families. It still amazes me that people (just like myself) never knew the wonderful and important work that they do. If you have never heard of Give Kids the World Village, please check out my three part series to learn more about them!
As part of this blog, I have been blessed to work with particular brands, authors, and others, in sharing and reviewing. I only partner with companies or authors that I feel my readers would benefit from hearing more about. It’s a very personal thing to me and I believe that being completely honest is one of the most important aspects of developing and maintaining a strong relationship with my readers. My favorite types of reviews are books.
Why You May See Content from Guard the Door:
I started Guard the Door after I felt God’s leading to share the journey of marriage and life. My husband and I were really moved by the movie Fireproof. The song, “Love is Not a Fight” would run through my head. Particularly the line about “God send angels to guard the door“. I didn’t know what it meant at the time, but it became clear that it was exactly what He had done many times in our lives and that “guard the door” was meant to be the name of a new blog I would create. Think about how many times God’s hand of protection was over you or your family. Guard the Door was meant to be a blog about preserving marriages, families, and leading primarily women to a relationship with Jesus.
Over the last few years, God has been shaping me, while sanding off the rough edges of my spirit and heart that needed to be transformed. The result is that while I felt Guard the Door was my baby in a way, the season for that blog has come and gone. God used it to transform my life and that of my readers. It became clear to me from the constant nudging of His Spirit, that I was to now transform the blog itself to The Blessed Family Life where I would share not only our adventures in homeschooling, but also faith, travel, wellness, and service. It is my hope and prayer that I will serve you by sharing my stories and thoughts and that you will be blessed by them. When you go back through my blog, you will see the progression of where God first gave me Guard the Door to where The Blessed Homeschool Life is now. I thank God for the journey and look forward to what He has in store for the future.
