Thoughts — encouragement, pitfalls, and areas of focus — for those just starting out, from one finishing up.
Helps for New Homeschoolers:
While criticism can be hurtful and disappointing, we can stay above the wake of loud voices by staying strong in our faith and remembering whom we serve. It really boils down to checking your fear!
Success may not look like you think it will. Real success probably won’t look anything like success defined by the world at large. Know what you are aiming for.

There are many ways of looking at “education.” Food for thought, ideas for inspiration, models, resources, and encouragement to help you find your own way.
When our grown children look back on their childhood, what will they remember? It will go faster than you think!
