Homeschoolers: Be Encouraged!

I was visiting a few blogs this morning and wanted to share a few points of interest that I felt important enough to share. You must begin by reading this article I found on Stacy's blog:

Homeschooler's Threaten Our Cultural Comfort

Here is an excerpt from the article:

"Deep down, however, we know that our generation has eaten its seed corn. We lack the discipline and the vision to deny ourselves in the hope of something enduring and worthy for our posterity. We are tired from working extra jobs, and the looming depression threatens our 401k’s. Credit cards are nearly maxed, and it costs a $100 to fuel the Suburban. Now the kid is raising hell again, demanding the latest Play Station as his price for doing his school work … and there goes that modest young woman in the home-made dress with her four bright-eyed, well-behaved home-schooled children in tow. Wouldn’t you just love to wipe that serene look right off her smug face?"


  1. thanks for your webpage - you're an inspiration. I am a new stay at home mama to my 2 year old son!! :) I worked part time outside the home but I am home full time now, praise God!

    can you give us the names of some biblically based books on parenting that you have enjoyed, or heard of...that you'd recommend is what I'm saying.

    have a great day!!! :)

  2. Randi Jo,

    Absolutely--here are three off the top of my head:

    Biblical Parenting---Don Gilchrist

    Shepherding a Child's Heart---Tedd Tripp

    Heart of Anger--Lou Priolo

    Hope that helps. If you look in the left hand sidebar of my blog you will see a link that says 'HomeBuilders Bookstore'--there you will find some of these books and other books we like to recommend to families.

    Many blessings and happy reading...

  3. I read that article, thought it was great. Thanks for sharing this.
