It’s why you are here!
But here’s the question- is homeschooling for you?
Here’s why I started homeschooling.(See if you can relate.)
I grew up in a small town and as was tradition I attended the public school. School was not something I really looked forward to. It was easy to get lost in the shuffle and the peer pressure was intense. When I was in 6th grade the thought that dominated my thinking was “treat others the way you want to be treated” so when I was bullied I would be kind.
But as I entered high school this thinking was soon replaced with treat others as they have treated you! What happened to “treat others as you want to be treated”?
Over time my thinking had changed. I just lived for me. That was all I cared about was me. Public school as I call it now was “survival of the fittest.” Is that not the teaching of evolution?
Sadly, I made a lot of poor decisions by the time I was 18! With all the teaching I acquired in school I did not learn “true knowledge”. Godly wisdom & discernment were not taught in those public halls. I was a young lady left up to my own devices without a lighthouse to lead the way!
When my daughter was of age, with papers in hand I headed to the local public school just like my parents did before me. However, God interrupted my plans and said to me, “Homeschool.” “What is that?” On my quest for answers I headed to the local library instead and in my search came across a book written by Christopher Klicka “Homeschooling the Right Choice.” The book answered my question thoroughly as well as answered why homeschooling was the best choice for my daughter.
Do I have any regrets in following God’s leading to homeschool my daughter? No! As of this year she is a homeschool graduate & I have to say she is wiser & more mature at the age of 18 then I ever was!
To God be the glory!
I am here to equip you with the how & why homeschooling matters as well as offer you support along the way of fulfilling your calling to homeschool.
