A spiritual home may be a "call"....
Posted by Supertradmum
I have written about spiritual homes before...places to which God calls certain people, especially to do missionary work.
One thinks of the old movie, The Inn of the Sixth Happiness, based on the true story of Gladys Aylward, from a book called The Small Woman, by Alan Burgess. Gladys was one of these people to whom God gave an overwhelming and mysterious love for a country very different from her birth country, England.
She was called to go to China, which she expressed by a great love in her heart for the Chinese people and culture. She personally saved 100 children from war-torn areas.
If you are a homeschooling family, this film is a good one, although it does take some liberties with the original story. Our children needs heroes and Glady Aylward is a hero.
