In world that is moving at warp speed, it’s easy to forget that kids are still kids. Their needs haven’t changed—they need time to explore and experiment with the real world around them, to absorb life through all their senses, to process their thoughts at their own pace. All of these are crucial in laying a firm foundation for higher learning, but this takes time. Learn why this is so important and how to protect and defend your kids childhood.

Durenda Wilson has been homeschooling for over 23 years and is a mom of 8 (born 1991-2004). She has graduated 5, and 3 are still at home. She’s been married to Darryl for 29 years, and they have 6 grandkids. Durenda is convinced that home educating is an incredible blessing but only if we don’t let it hold us hostage to unnecessary expectations and notions of what it “should” look like. The heart of her message is to encourage families to think outside the box and take time to enjoy this amazing journey. She firmly believes that children are naturally curious, and if parents keep things simple and unhurried, their kids will become lifelong learners. Durenda has written The Unhurried Homeschooler, a simple, mercifully short book on homeschooling and Unhurried Grace for a Mom’s Heart-31 days in God’s Word. She is the owner/host on her podcast (Durenda Wilson) and blog, durendawilson.
