Believe me when I tell you–homeschooling success can be yours. Let me tell you how I made it work for our family and how you can too!
Homeschooling Success Can Be Yours
18 (short!) years. That’s’ all I had. And with some of my adopted kids joining our family late in life, I knew I had even less than that with them. I wanted to pack my children’s lives with meaning. I wanted to give them the best life I could. Because someday, I wanted to stand before God and be able to say I had done all I could to raise my children to love and follow Him.
But something was holding me back. As I lay awake at night, it was like a weight sitting on my chest…the possibility of homeschooling.
I realize now, that weight was fear. I was scared that homeschooling would require me to kiss my dreams goodbye. That if I homeschooled, my kids would emerge from adulthood as weird, socially awkward creatures that people would roll their eyes at and say, ” Oh, they must have been homeschooled.” Most of all, I was afraid homeschooling would turn my life upside down.
In many ways, it did.
My dining room table was suddenly taken over by books and papers and my thoughts became consumed with worries about curriculum. homeschool co-ops, and conferences. I worried, was I even qualified to do this? My school-aged kids were home all the time, I had no time for myself.
But as the days passed into months, and months to years, I started to notice a few things:
My kids were playing outside when other kids were stuck in desks all day.
My kids truly loved learning and viewed the world as their classroom. They loved the Lord and were excited to serve Him.
These kids raised at home weren’t socially awkward–in fact, they loved talking to adults and could strike up a conversation with anyone anywhere.
I felt like I knew my kids–really KNEW them. I was confident I could give them each the individual attention they needed to be successful. Homeschooling had made it possible for me to reach them despite their different levels, abilities, and challenges.
They say bravery isn’t the absence of fear, it’s moving towards the thing you fear anyway. Maybe you’ve got fears, concerns, questions. I’m here to tell you that’s OK. In fact, it’s actually very normal.
“For which one of you, when he wants to build a tower, does not first sit down and calculate the cost to see if he has enough to complete it?
You are right to consider the cost. And that’s exactly why I designed the Homeschool Success Course with you in mind. I know the cost and I know that the gift of a homeschool education to your children and your family is worth it. And I’m here to help you.
I’ve put my heart and soul into developing a course for you that outlines the most important aspects of homeschooling:
Creating a positive home environment where your children will thrive and learn.
Inviting your kids to join you on their education journey.
Understanding the basics of homeschooling laws and what it really takes for your kids to graduate and go on to college.
Discovering your gifts as a homeschooling teacher.
