Most of us agree that chores are important, but often, moms and kids are frustrated and angry when it comes to how and when to implement them. Having 8 kids in 12 years has the potential to bring a mom to her knees and her home into disarray, but God taught our kids (and me) so much through working together. The benefits of having our kids do chores are countless! I’ll talk about many of them as well as how we scheduled them. More than anything, I want you to be encouraged that investing in this area not only lightens our loads as moms but is an essential part of our kids’ education!

Durenda Wilson has been homeschooling since 1996 and has graduated 7 of her 8 children so far. She has been married to Darryl for 31 years, and they have 6 grandkids. Durenda is convinced that home education 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 encourages parents to create a simple, unhurried lifestyle while growing a strong, cohesive family. It’s in this nurturing environment where learning most naturally happens and where life-long learners are grown. Durenda’s new book, The Four Hour School Day will be released in June of 2021! She has also written The Unhurried HomeschoolerA Simple, Mercifully Short Book on Homeschooling and Unhurried Grace for a Mom’s Heart: 31 Days in God’s Word. Durenda is also the host of The Durenda Wilson Podcast.
