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! 😉

My Biggest Fear for This Generation of Homeschoolers

this podcast is sponsored by Apologia

Years ago, homeschoolers didn’t have choices in curriculum, they didn’t have co-ops or conventions, and it may have been illegal to school your children at home. Yet, I almost envy those moms. Why is that? Today I am discussing my biggest fear for new homeschoolers and the homeschoolers of this generation.

**TIME IS RUNNING OUT- SLFH2018! Registration Ends June 30th!

This summer, I am hosting a women’s retreat in Gettysburg, PA. In a world of excess, we are going to focus on that fact that Jesus is enough. The world will tell you YOU are enough. But truly, HE is enough. He is all we need. We don’t rely on ourselves, or earthly comforts, but on Him alone.  I have lived with it all stripped away, and I have seen that yes, Jesus is enough. In fact, Jesus is MORE than enough.

Early Bird Registration is Open! Join us for this life-changing and life-giving event. You will spend two days with other sisters in Christ, tired of what the world offers, and ready to live the life that HE offers.
