The pressure starts before we even hold our babies in our arms: cloth diapering or disposable, store bought baby food or homemade, nurse or bottle feed? We even feel pressured to decide our style of parenting before we have a chance to engage in the role. Feeling pushed and pressured is no way to start our parenting journey or our home education. By taking time in the early years to learn to let God lead us, we begin to create the margin that helps give us freedom to be the parents and homeschooling family God has called us to be.

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.
