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 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.
