Trusting God in the Process

I recently went to a homeschool coffee social with new and seasoned homeschool moms. It was rewarding to go as an encourager. I hadn't realized that somehow over the last fifteen years, I had gone from a novice homeschool mom to being seasoned. (Although weathered or battle-scarred might be a better description.) I am now the mom I looked at fifteen years ago and thought, "Wow, she sure has it all figured out now that she has all those years of homeschooling under her belt." If she only knew.

Teaching the Important Stuff

Most homeschool families desire to teach the principles of God to their children so that they grasp, and eventually own, their own faith—they get it, when it comes to following Jesus Christ. Therefore, for many homeschool families, one of the principal factors for choosing to homeschool is the opportunity to teach their children godly principles from the Bible. They desire to do more than just teach reading, writing and arithmetic. Their goal is that their children have a genuine relationship with Jesus Christ and follow Him.

Who Benefits the Most from Homeschooling?

Study after study demonstrates that statically speaking, children taught at home do better academically than children taught in classrooms. We know homeschool students excel academically, are well-adjusted socially and often have time and opportunity to pursue non-academic interests, developing natural gifts in areas such as music, sports, robotics and debate.
