The comparison trap is a real struggle for homeschool moms everywhere. We compare ourselves to other moms and in turn, lose our joy. We are tackling this topic with Wendy Gunn on the podcast.
In this episode, I chat with Wendy Gunn from Your Home for God. We talk about the comparison trap, and Wendy shares the lesson she learned about embracing the unique story God has created just for her, and how we all can learn from that lesson. We also talk about the regret she has regarding her kids and letting them make their own mistakes while they were under her roof.
“The journey doesn’t stop when our children are grown, it just changes”

I also appreciated the specific questions that Misty used to create the interview. Good work!
I thought that Wendy offered insights that were rock solid biblically, and experientially. I too, am a veteran homeschooling mom, and I concur with her conclusions, especially that it is so important that we— and our children— know who we are in Christ.
You’re welcome! She was a blessing.
Thanks for having Wendy on…appreciated her insights!
