Why On Earth Are You Homeschooling?• ep122

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Today we are asking why on earth are you homeschooling?  If you are a homeschooler, I bet you have been asked that before…and I bet you ask that of yourself many times too!

But really, the answer is so simple. And I want to encourage you to focus on keeping the main thing the main thing…it’s not always easy or even comfortable, but I don’t think anything we do of worth is.

If we keep in my mind why we are doing this, everything else falls into place.

Join me and then let me know your thoughts in the comments below!

Homeschooling High School: Keeping It Simple • ep 119

I have been asked about homeschooling high school so many times, so today I am addressing the topic…with the caveat that I am NOT the expert and I will never proclaim my way is the way to go! This is merely OUR experience with homeschooling high school and I am learning along the way. Having one graduating this year, and three more behind, there will be more to learn 😉

The most important thing to do in homeschooling high school is to PRAY- seek the Lord in all you do, and you will succeed. I never, ever, thought we would homeschool high school, and here we are with two college acceptances under our belt. But even without those, my goals have always been to raise an adult who loves the Lord wholeheartedly and seeks His will.

Our journey has never been about achieving the perfect test score, scholarship, or college acceptance, but to raise our children to be disciples of Christ.

You’re not developing a transcript. You’re developing a person. Focus on who your child is, not just a paper credential.

I am addressing a bit about the “how to’s” but mostly the heart of the matter- we don’t have to over complicate things and we don’t have to stress. God is in control!

I Never Should Have Homeschooled • Podcast ep 112

 

As we approach the end of this journey for our oldest daughter, I am still in awe of how we ever got to this place. The truth is I never should have homeschooled- I was the least likely to take on this task, and many days I ask myself if I am ruining my kids.

But God.

He reminds me why I am doing this and He also provides me the means to do it. So yes, I never should have homeschooled, but God said otherwise. I obeyed. And here we are and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else.

Whether you are contemplating homeschool or struggling in the thick of it, or you are not a homeschooler but feel God calling you to something in life, be encouraged today that we do NOT rely on ourselves! The most important thing to do is ASK GOD. Follow Him. You can’t go wrong!

Ep 105•Thirteen Years of Homeschooling. What We Have Learned, What Methods We Have Used, and How We Have Changed.

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

We began our thirteenth year of homeschooling this year.  If you know the backstory, then you know this is nothing short of a miracle really. It has been a week full of reflection, and I wrote this earlier in the week:
“No more first days.
No more planning the curriculum.
No more thinking, …”well if this doesn’t work, we can always change it next year…”
There is no next year. This is it.
We have such a story to tell. Our journey has been life-changing and very little has had to do with school. And I wouldn’t trade it for the world. It has been full of ups and downs. But I can’t believe this chapter is closing.”
Read the rest here.

Homeschool Methods, Lessons, and Changes

Today on the podcast I am talking about our methods over the years, what we have learned, and how we have changed. It has sure been a journey. And even though it is nearing the end for my oldest, we have quite a bit more to go…thankfully…I’m not quite ready for it all to be over yet! 😉
