Welcome to Heaven Not Harvard
What started as a mantra for my parenting, has become a focal point for my life, the contrast between the world’s pressures in comparison to God’s promises and peace, focusing on Heaven not Harvard.

A fellow mom and I were struggling with the differences between our fantasies of parenting and the real-life children God gave us, when I had a moment of clarity, realizing that God’s plan for our children focused on their hearts, not accomplishments. If we win them for Christ, what else matters in eternity?
Heaven – Not Harvard
Luke 12:33-34 ESV “Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.“
I love focusing on storing the permanent treasures in heaven which will focus our hearts there instead of this world.
Proverbs 3:5-6 ESV “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
I may not have all the answers, but I know who does, and we’re walking closer to His way everyday, looking toward Heaven not Harvard.
