I love homeschooling. I did it for 24 years. I promote it. I encourage parents to do it. I mentor new homeschool moms in their new adventure and I encourage homeschool parents who are in the trenches right now. Why is this so important to me? Because I know God is training up a generation of people.
Years ago when my husband and I went to our first homeschool seminar, the speaker jokingly said, “God is using homeschooling to grow the parents up.” Well, he hit the nail right on the head. That statement is so true! If you’ve been homeschooling for any length of time, you’ll agree with me.
Will Rogers said, “Even if you’re on the right track,you’ll get run over if you just sit there.”
So how do we teach them to make wise decisions and develop the confidence they need to influence the world? We train them to be self-motivated rather than drag them through life kicking and screaming.
One of the best ways to get started developing self-motivated learners is by reading books and discussing them together. This will not only educate us, but inspire us to think creatively and to take action.
So check back here often to see what’s going on.
