What Math Can Teach Us About God

One of the things that I love about teaching homeschool is that it provides ample opportunities to see God’s character through the things that we are learning as a family. I didn’t always think this way. But a few years ago, Joe and I attended a homeschool conference and the keynote speaker, Voddie Baucham, really challenged parents: Everything that we learn in homeschool should … Read More What Math Can Teach Us About God

Time Saving Ideas for Homeschool

With each additional child, the time spent homeschooling every day increases exponentially for mom and/or dad. Homeschool begins with teaching kids at home, but that is not where homeschool ends.

Even as a child, I was a extremely active: afterschool jobs, sports, music lessons, speech, drama, band, 4H, and church … Read More Creating Margin in Your Family

Homeschool: God’s Mandate For Parents

That’s a big title, I know. And I bet you didn’t know that God requires that His people homeschool their kids. But it’s there. Just look at Deuteronomy 6:4-9~ 4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. 5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 … Read More Homeschool: God’s Mandate For Parents

“So, what is homeschool REALLY like?”

Everyone has a different mental image of what homeschool is like. I’ve seen several amusing memes on Facebook and Pinterest. People who don’t homeschool often make assumptions about what it looks like- I definitely did. I was not homeschooled as a child- I attended public school for all of my education. My husband attended parochial school for all of his elementary and secondary education, … Read More “So, what is homeschool REALLY like?”
