The journey of homeschooling is good, but it is not easy! Many of us start our journey excited with great visions and goals of what we want our homeschools to look like and how we want our children to turn out. Then the reality of the daily grind of homeschooling and all its challenges hits, and our excitement goes from a blazing fire to a mere spark. Dana wants to encourage you to stay the course and to remember why you started. After homeschooling for thirteen years, she needed this reminder to refocus her this past year. Let’s go back and remember.

Dana McDill is the wife of NCHE’s executive director, Matthew McDill. They live in Clemmons, NC, with six (ages 17 to 8) of their nine children. Their oldest daughter is married and their two oldest boys are in college. She has been homeschooling for 19 years. She loves to come alongside and encourage moms because she knows well the challenges of the journey. She doesn’t claim to be an expert because she knows God is still refining her! She hopes some of the lessons she has learned will help you!
